The 2022 US Open sported one of the lowest scores all year. Weather and wind wasn’t the key factor in a gritty U.S. Open win for Matt Fitzpatrick – we’d argue it was confidence. With Will Zalatoris, Scottie Scheffler and others constantly applying pressure, Matt showed a lot of confidence as he battled through tough lies and bunkers to hit 17 out of 18 greens and hold off a tight field.
Confidence comes from multiple factors, but critical is believing in your equipment. If you don’t have that confidence, it’s time to consider a lifetime custom club fitting and custom built golf clubs.
Matt’s equipment was a mixed bag of Titleist, new and old Ping and a Bettinardi putter. Using insights from GolfWRX.com and PGATour.com, here’s what’s so unique; and not so unique about his winning equipment.
- Top of the Bag: Driver – Titleist’s latest TSi3 9-degree driver with a Mitsubishi Tensei AV Raw Orange 65TX shaft. 3-wood: PING’s new G425 MAX 14.5-degree with the Tensei AV Raw Orange 75TX shaft. 7-wood: PING G410 20.5-degree (released in 2018) with the Tensei CK Pro Orange 80TX shaft.

- Wedges: Titleist’s SM9 52-08, 56-08, and 60-08 wedges with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S300 shafts.
