WITB Abraham Ancer - FedEx St. Jude Invitational Winner
Abraham Ancer managed to pull off his first win at the St.Jude Invitational. Ancer has been hanging out around the top of the leaderboard for much of 2021, and getting to see him pull off his first victory in a three-man playoff was quite exciting. Ancer’s golf bag is filled with some unique options from the top companies in the game. If you are curious as to what technology makes Ancer as accurate and consistent as he is, we have all the answers for you.
Abraham Ancer is currently playing the Callaway Epic Speed Triple Diamond LS. This is a popular driver on the PGA Tour this year because of its high ball speed but impressive feel. He sets the driver at 7.5 to help control his higher ball speeds and launch angles. The shaft is a Mitsubishi Tensei CK Pro Blue 60 TX.
Fairway Woods & Utilities
The TaylorMade SIM2 Max is the three wood of choice for Ancer. The SIM2 Max is another club known for incredible distance technology, ball speed, and lower spin. The five wood in Ancer’s bag is an interesting choice as it is an M2, an older model from TaylorMade. It seems like this club has performed well enough to keep its spot in the bag. The four iron utility is a Srixon ZX with a Mitsubishi Chemical MMT shaft. The Mitsubishi MMT tends to be a favorite shaft for Ancer.
The irons, of course, are perhaps the most unique part of the set. Ancer plays with the hand-forged Miura TC-201 irons in the 5-PW. Ancer is one of the only players on the PGA Tour to be using the Miura irons, and the feel of these clubs helps him continue to use them year after year. For golfers that like precision, the Miura irons are a very smart choice.
In addition to making some of the best golf irons on the market, Miura also makes impressive wedges. Ancer uses the Miura HB-10 in a 52-degree wedge and then an Artisan Prototype in the 56 and 60-degree wedges. These all have a Dynamic Gold S400 shaft in them.
Last but certainly not least is the club that sealed the deal on Abraham Ancers first PGA Tour win. The Odyssey White Hot No.5 Stroke Lab putter is a mallet-style putter with an impressive feel. The Odyssey mallet putters are easy to line up and keep players more consistent as they approach both long and short putts. Ancer tends to be quite good at distance control in his putting; that is another benefit of the Odyssey White Hot No 5 Stroke Lab.
As you can see, Abraham Ancer uses various equipment from the top manufacturers in the game. It will be interesting to see if or how his bag will change after this first PGA Tour win. He may find the need to be sponsored by one company or stick to being unique and keeping this variety of clubs for years to come.
