WITB for Nick Taylor, 2023 RBC Heritage winner, and snapping a 69-year drought for Canadians at the RBC Canadian Open. From Titleist in the top of the bag to TaylorMade in the bottom, Taylor climbed the leaderboard on Friday, and again Saturday with a course-record 63. After shooting a 75 in round 1, Taylor sat tied for 120th; but that didn’t hold him back. Open Sunday with 4-under in the first 9, Taylor jumped out to a 3 shot lead. Then, Tommy Fleetwood got hot, tying Taylor in regulation at -17 under. A true test of nerves, Taylor then held off Tommy Fleetwood with an impressive 72-foot eagle putt on the 4th hole of their playoff. The Canadian crowds went absolutely nuts!

- Wedges: Titleist Vokey Design SM8 46-, 54- and Titleist Vokey Design WedgeWorks 58-degree wedges with True Temper Dynamic Gold S400 shafts.Nick Taylor is spot-on with his approach to wedge shafts. He follows our recommended wedge shafting – using the same shaft in your wedges as your irons. Consistency with proper flex and swing weight directly results in creating more consistency through the attack part of your bag. Depending on which stock wedges you buy from Titleist, Callaway, TaylorMade or others, you could end up with much heavier wedges than your irons. Instead, custom building your wedges with the right shaft boosts confidence and delivers consistency where you need it most.
- Putter: TaylorMade Spider Tour
