Congrats again to Tiger Woods on his massive Tour Championship win.



His bag has changed quite a bit since his comeback so buckle up

1. His famous Scotty Cameron putter was benched for a time in favour of a TaylorMade TP Collection Ardmore 2. But back in the bag at East Lake.
2. Tiger now uses TaylorMade prototype irons after switching from those  TGR prototypes nobody knew the origin of.
3. Tiger now uses the M3 driver with a 460cc head.  He used an M2 and M3 440 earlier this season.
4. Tiger used TaylorMade TP UDI 2-iron and GAPR Lo this season.
5. The last Nike clubs in his bag, Nike VR Forged wedges were replaced by TaylorMade Milled Grind raw wedges.

Here's what's in his winning bag.

How He Did It: The Stats


The 42-year-old improved his 54 hole leader win record to an incredible 55 from 59 at East Lake. Using his TaylorMade M3 driver Tiger hit 36 fairways for the week, T3 in the field and averaged 304.3 yards.

That set up 48 greens in regulation (T14 in the field) using his TaylorMade TW-Phase1 prototype irons.  30 putts Sunday with his famous Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS brought his total for the week to 108 with an average 27.0 putts per round (2nd in the field).

Tiger went a cumulative +1, -7, -5 for the par 3's, 4's, 5's in Atlanta matching one eagle and 18 birdies against 7 bogey and one double.

He ends the season with this win as part of seven top 10's in 18 events and heads to Paris in top form to represent Team USA in the Ryder Cup.

Doc's Summary

A stretch of 1876 days has passed since we last saw Tiger win on Tour is over and his journey back must go down as one of the greatest comeback stories ever in sports.

Tiger's East Lake victory defies rational thinking. The injuries, the surgeries, the scandals, the capacity to change as a person and find a way to rebuild everything. It is truly inspirational.

So many times over the years we watched Tiger win with barely a smile. That was just him doing what he used do.  That same rigmarole of battering the field into submission again and again.  The Tiger that won the Tour Championship was emotionally charged. Grateful. Thankful. Human. No Rory, DJ, Rickie or even Rosey could match him.

What was different this week?  The putter. Tiger's old Scotty, shelved a couple of weeks ago, seemed to have learned its lesson and was majestic on the greens at East Lake. With win number 80 in the bag, Tiger is eyeing  Sam Snead's record 82 PGA Tour victories.

Surely now too talk of beating Jack Nicklaus' Major record will surface again but Tiger turns 43 before the end of 2018 and with his life priorities changed immeasurably from that driven young winner of 20 years ago it'll be interesting to see how the next year unfolds.

For now lets just celebrate Tiger Woods being back. Winning again.
