JOHN DEERE CLASSIC MICHAEL KIM WINNING SCORE: 27-under-par, 257. WINNER'S BAG EQUIPMENT NOTES • Kim’s win is the first for Titleist’s new TS drivers that first appeared at the US Open. The American switched to the new model at the Quicken Loans and missed only 10 fairways last week with the yet-to-be released model – a near 30 percent improvement on his season average. He was equally impressive at the other end of the bag, leading the field in Scrambling, Sand Saves, Putts per GIR and Strokes Gained: Putting thanks largely to his Scotty Cameron made of highly expensive German Stainless Steel. • The Korean-born Kim, who turned 25 on Saturday, broke Steve Stricker’s 2010 scoring record by one with his 27-under total – which also marked a significant event for his equipment sponsor, Titleist, who had 81 percent of the 156-man field use one of its golf balls; its highest number since 1996. TO BE SITTING HERE WITH THE TROPHY, I DON'T KNOW, I'M JUST AT A LOSS FOR WORDS. I THINK I MADE THE RIGHT CAREER CHOICE. • DRIVER: Titleist TS2 with 10.5̊ loft, fitted with Aldila Rogue Black 110 60X shaft. • 3-WOOD: Titleist 917F2 with 16.5̊ loft, with Aldila Rogue Black 110 70X shaft. • HYBRID: Titleist 816H1 with 21̊ loft, with Graphite Design Tour AD-DI 85X Hybrid shaft. • IRONS: Titleist 716 T-MB (4-iron) and Titleist 718 AP2 (5-iron to pitching wedge), with True Temper XP 115 shafts (4-iron and PW) and True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S300 shafts (5-9). • WEDGES: Titleist Vokey Design SM7 (52̊-12̊ F Grind, 56̊-14̊ F Grind and 60̊-04̊ L Grind), with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S300 shafts. • PUTTER: Scotty Cameron Newport GSS 350. • BALL: Titleist Pro V1x.
