The 2022 Wyndham Championship will forever be etched in the mind of Joohyung “Tom” Kim. With his win, he secured a $1.3 million payout, eligibility for the two FedExCup Playoffs, his PGA Tour Membership, and likely a spot on the Presidents Cup team. His final round 61 resulted in a 5-shot lead over 3rd round leader Sungjae Im.
What’s in Their Bag: Joohyung Kim’s Winning Equipment at 2022 Wyndham Championship
- Top of the Bag. Driver: Titleist 9-degree TSR3 with a Fujikura Atmos Black 6X shaft. 3-wood: Titleist 13.5-degree TSR3 with a Mitsubishi Tensei 1K Pro White 70TX shaft.
An important part of custom fitting woods is to make sure the right stepping of overall club weight between Driver, 3-woods and hybrids. For Kim, the perfect match was the 67-gram weight of the Atmos Black and a mid-launch, mid-spin profile. Then stepping down to the 76-gram weight of the Tensei 1K Pro White with a low-launch, low-spin profile.
- Irons. Titleist T200 2-iron with a Fujikura Ventus Black HB 10TX shaft. Or a Titleist T200 3-iron with a Project X 5.5 shaft. According to Golf WRX, Kim will decide between 2-iron, 3-iron and hybrid depending on the course. And, the Titleist T100 4-iron through PW with the True Temper Project X 6.0 Rifle shafts.
Indicative of Kim’s swing including attack angle, the Ventus Black HB shaft, the Project X 5.5 and Project X 6.0 shafts all feature low launch, low spin profiles. For players that hit high and spinny shots, the tendency is to lose control of shots due to wind, overspinning approach shots, etc. To find out how to optimize your spin rates across every club in your bag, gain control, accuracy and distance, schedule a custom club fitting today.
- Wedges. Titleist Vokey Design SM9 52-12 and 56-10 degree and a Titleist Vokey WedgeWorks 60-A degree wedge with the True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shaft.
The Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts are one of the most popular shafts on tour and for stronger players. The key takeaway from Kim’s setup is that he favors a slightly heavier shaft profile in his wedges. While we typically recommend shaft consistency from 4-iron through lob wedge because it produces consistent performance, even with chip shots around the green. Players that want more feel can benefit from a slightly heavier build in 52-degree to 64-degree wedges. Learn more about wedge shafting and wedge fittings.
