Will Zalatoris WITB - FedEx St.Jude Championship
The FedEx St.Jude Championship always has a strong field, and 2022 was certainly no exception. This year we watched Will Zalatoris claim his first win on Tour, something that he has been flirting with for several years. Zalatoris is such a strong player, committed to perfect ball striking, and very methodical about his equipment and swing. Zalatoris is a Titleist-sponsored player, and you can see that he is very well covered with some of the best equipment Titleist has to offer.
Zalatoris players with the Titleist TSR3 set to 8 degrees. This golf club features the Fujikura Speeder TR 661X. The shaft and driver head combination is built for high swing speed golfers who sometimes tend to get too much spin and ball flight. With the TSR3, there is a bit more control put back into the hands of the player.
Zalatoris carried just one fairway wood and no hybrids to win the FedEx St.Jude Championship. The club is a 3 wood; the Titleist TSR2+ set at 13 degrees. This 3 wood also features a Fujikura shaft, this time the Fujikura Ventus TR Blue 8 X. Golfers that want a great alternative to a driver can consider a long 3 wood like this one from Titielsist.
Will Zalatoris is a very good ball striker, so it comes as no surprise that he chooses a 3 iron over a hybrid in his bag. The 3 iron is the more forgiving Titleist T200, and it features a Nippon NS Pro Modus 3 shaft.
The rest of the iron set is the Titleist T100 in the 4-PW. These all feature the True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 golf shafts.
It's never a surprise when the Titleist-sponsored golfers choose the Vokey design wedges to feature in their bag. Zalatoris has the SM0 in a 50 and 55-degree setting. In addition, he has the Vokey Design WedgeWorks Proto set at 60 degrees.
The shaft on all the wedges is the True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100. Many golfers will go with something a bit softer in their wedges, but Zalatoris likes to keep it the same throughout his golf bag.
The putter is a Scotty Cameron Phantom X T11 prototype. Although we don’t have access to this putter just yet, you never know which Cameron putters will make it from the tour prototype to the hands of amateur players.
One thing we saw on Sunday was that Zalatoris had some confidence with this putter and could roll down those mid-range putts that often prove to be difficult.
It’s always great to see a golfer get their first win, especially one that has been trying so hard to find it. Zalatoris hangs in there at all majors, and he is impressive in his ability to compete with the best golfers in the game. The Titleist golf setup he plays with is the perfect match for him.
