Team TaylorMade’s Dustin Johnson won the 2020 Masters and his second major playing a full bag of TaylorMade clubs and golf ball

Basingstoke, Hants. (November 15, 2020) – World no.1 and TaylorMade staffer Dustin Johnson claimed his first green jacket at Augusta National with rounds of 65-70-65-68 for a record -20 under and 5 shot victory.

Playing 14 TaylorMade clubs and ball, that includes a SIM driver and TP5X golf ball, DJ hasn’t finished outside the Top 10 in has last 6 starts since entering this week. Adding a Masters title to his US Open trophy, DJ doubles his majors and takes his total
professional victories to 24.

After a stellar “moving day” in the third round of competition, where he hit every fairway and nearly made an albatross at the par-5 second, DJ was four shots ahead entering Sunday. Perfectly positioned to saunter his way to a second major title.

DJ’s 54 hole Strokes Gained stats were impressive:

  • Total: 14.66 (1st)
  • Off-the-Tee: 4.10 (2nd)
  • Approach (100): 7.05 (1st)
  • Putting: 3.52 (10th)

The course-dependent 7-wood has been in and out Dustin’s bag throughout the season. For Augusta, it gave him the perfect carry number and landing angle to attack the par 5s. DJ was a combined 11-under on the storied par 5s for the week. Other equipment changes
included fresh Milled Grind wedges for some extra zip on short shots.

We built the 7-wood for him during his FedEx Cup run. I think it was always the plan that he might use it at Augusta. He at first was looking to add more spin to his 5-wood to increase the decent angle and give him more stopping power into par 5s. We accomplished
that by switching into the 7-wood head. We knew it would be useful to him in partnership with the TP5 ball – all of this with Augusta in mind.

It was a complete performance from tee to green. Across the four rounds, Dustin led the field in greens in regulation (82%) and proximity to the green (30’8”). He hit 77% of fairways while averaging 307 yards off the tee.

DJ has carried the same equipment since claiming the Fed Ex Cup back in September, including a SIM Max 7-wood with 21° of loft to complement his SIM Max 3-wood (15°). His go to driver has been a SIM driver (10.5°) all season and then his P•730 (DJ Proto)
irons (3-PW) and Milled Grind Wedges complete the bag alongside his TP5X golf ball.
