There was I thinking that all the long driver guys used LOWER lofts on their drivers.  Not Dustin Johnson who won at Riviera with a 2017 TaylorMade M1 driver set at 11 degrees.

Dustin Johnson WITB 2017
Dustin Johnson's 2017 M1 driver loft was 11 degrees at Riviera.

DJ averaged 315.3 yards from the tee at Riviera, and has now topped the driving distance in each of the last four events he has played (MC'd at Farmers).  Already this season he has gamed the 2017 M2 driver, his US Open winning 2016 M1 and the 2017 M1.

Johnson also uses the new TP5x ball which is getting rave reviews.

If the driver is new, Johnson's old reliable TaylorMade Tour Preferred MB ’14 irons wont be going anywhere soon.  He topped the greens in regulations stats at Riviera hitting 56 greens in total.

Here's DJ up to date What's In The Bag.
