WGC-HSBC CHAMPIONS XANDER SCHAUFFELE WINNING SCORE: 14-under-par, 274. EQUIPMENT NOTES • Schauffele’s prototype Callaway forged irons are currently without a model name, but have been in the American’s bag since The Northern Trust in August. Schauffele only joined the company in 2018 and has taken his time to change out the equipment he used to win twice on the PGA Tour in 2017 on his way to Rookie of the Year honours, however he seems to have found a comfortable match in the irons featuring a thinner topline as well as less offset and bounce and Callaway’s Chrome Soft X golf ball which earns it second win of the season after Marc Leishman’s triumph. • While Cameron Champ’s driving was creating headlines in the PGA Tour’s other event, it was 25-year-old Schauffele’s short game that helped him defeat Tony Finau in a playoff. Schauffele ranked T4 in Putts per GIR and first in Scrambling for the week, with his counter balanced Odyssey O-Works #7CH putter only earning a place in his bag during last season’s FedExCup Playoffs when he parted with his faithful Odyssey Big T #5. • DRIVER: TaylorMade M3 460 with 9.5̊ loft, fitted with Graphite Design Tour AD-BB 7X shaft. • 3-WOOD: Callaway Rogue Sub Zero with 15̊ loft, with Graphite Design Tour AD-DI 8X shaft. • 5-WOOD: Callaway Rogue Sub Zero with 18̊ loft, with Graphite Design Tour AD-DI 8X shaft. • IRONS: Callaway Forged Prototype (4-iron to pitching wedge), with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts. • WEDGES: Callaway Mack Daddy 4 (52̊-10̊S) and Titleist Vokey Design SM6 (56̊-10̊ S Grind and 60̊-08̊ M Grind), with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts. • PUTTER: Odyssey O-Works Red #7CH. • BALL: Callaway Chrome Soft X. IT WAS A HARD-FOUGHT MATCH, AND IT'S A BUMMER, SINCE TONY AND I GET ALONG REALLY WELL. I KNOW HE'S GOING TO WIN A LOT SOON, OBVIOUSLY, BECAUSE HE'S PLAYING SO WELL. BAG WINNER'S
