The 2022 Travelers Championship winner Xander Schauffele finished strong, started very strong, and made for a dramatic finish Sunday. What’s more impressive is that on his heals and taking the lead Sunday was rookie Sahith Theegala, and in the mix was amateur Michael Thorbjornsen.
At the 2022 Travelers Championship, Xander also sported a unique combination of club generations throughout his bag. With insights from GolfWRX.com and Golf.com, here’s what you need to know about his winning setup and how your game can benefit from similar combinations.
- Top of the Bag: Driver – Callaway Rogue ST Triple Diamond S 10.5-degree with a Mitsubishi Chemical Kai’li White 70TX shaft. Callaway Epic Speed Triple Diamond 15-degree with a Mitsubishi Chemical Kai’li White 70TX shaft. And the Callaway Apex 21-degree UW with the Mitsubishi Kai’li White 90 TX shaft.
The Mitsubishi Kai’li White shafts are popular for stronger players with higher swing speeds whether you’re a tour player, single-digit or mid-handicap player. Single-digit and mid-handicap players often think off-the-shelf stiff flex shafts are right for them; unfortunately, it’s often far from the truth. Read more in our review of the Mitsubishi Kai’li White shafts and build your confidence off the tee with a Driver Fitting that fits your swing tempo, speed, and transition.
- Irons: Callaway Apex TCB 4-iron through PW with the True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100.
In 2021, the limited-edition TCB irons were hot – extremely soft feel, precise CG and designed for optimal distance control; read our review. That same precision engineering went into the rest of the popular Apex family of irons. Instead of dealing with that annoying fade or slice, or pull/ draw, now is the perfect time to get a Complete Lifetime Fitting and reduce your shot dispersion by 50% and gain 10-15% more distance.
- Wedges: Callaway Jaws RAW 52-degree, Titleist Vokey SM6 56-degree, and a Vokey SM9 60-degree K-Grind each with the Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100.
- Putter: Odyssey O-Works #7 CH Red.
