WITB: Tony Finau, April 2023 Mexico Open champion, held off the defending champ Jon Rahm in impressive fashion. One year ago, the results were the opposite with Finau finishing runner-up to Rahm. Winning the Mexico Open secured Tony’s 6th Tour win and 2nd win of the 2022-23 PGA Tour season. Since that win in November at the Houston Open, Finau has made one important change in his bag.

In November, Strokes Gained: Putting was key to Finau’s victory. Arguably his putting has struggled so far in 2023, ranking 44th in this statistic. With his victory Sunday, he ranked 8th in the tournament for Strokes Gained: Putting. See, even pros struggle putting sometimes. But Tony has stuck with the same putter and invested a lot of time and effort choosing this setup.
