The 2022 Tour Championship and FedEx Cup belongs to Rory McIlroy, again. His impressive come-from-behind win is an inspiration for all golfers – never give up! Congrats to Rory for winning his 3rd FedEx Cup. Read about Rory’s winning equipment in the 2022 RBC Canadian Open.
The hottest PGA Tour player in 2022 was Scottie Scheffler. Going into the 2022 Tour Championship as the #1 in FedEx Cup points, Scottie started with a 2-shot lead, a score of 10-under par and took that lead into the 16th hole in Round 4. What happened next is one for the record-books. With the help of TaylorMade, PGA Tour and GolfWRX, we feature Scheffler’s 2022 season winning equipment.
Inside Scottie Scheffler’s equipment at the 2022 Tour Championship
- Top of the Bag: Driver: TaylorMade Stealth Plus 8 degrees with a Fujikura Ventus Black 7 X shaft. 3-wood: TaylorMade Stealth Plus 16.5 degrees with a Fujikura Ventus Black 8 X shaft. Utility-Iron: Srixon Z U85 with a Nippon Pro Modus3 Hybrid Tour X shaft.
The Fujikura Ventus shafts have been a very popular choice on tour, especially for stronger players with higher swing speeds. In particular, the Ventus Black shafts profile for lower launch and lower spin. The Ventus Blue profile to a mid to mid-low launch. And the Ventus Red shafts are a lighter shaft and profile well for players looking to get more launch, especially in the fairway woods. Read our 2022 Review of Fujikura Ventus shafts.
Scottie is another player that favors the new utility irons over long irons, hybrids, or higher-lofted fairway woods. If you feel like you struggle with long irons or hybrid clubs, schedule an iron fitting today and see how utility irons can be a great bridge from fairway woods and irons.
- Irons: TaylorMade P7TW 5-iron through PW with the True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts.
- Wedges: Titleist Vokey Design SM8 50-12, 56-14, 60-06 lofts with the True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400 shafts.
Similar to Joohyung Kim and many other tour and amateur players, Scottie favors the slightly heavier shaft profile in his wedges. Players seeking more feel in their short game will favor a slightly heavier build. Amateur players are often at a disadvantage because wedge purchases off-the-shelf lack consistency from wedge to wedge – where consistency makes the biggest impact. There’s only one way to know what works best for you – schedule a wedge lifetime fitting today and hone your short-game in the off-season.
