His GBB Epic Driver, Epic 3-Wood, Apex Pro Irons and Callaway Golf Ball have all been permanent fixtures of his game this season, also helping him to victory earlier this year at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Leishman’s victory marks the 17th worldwide Tour win for the Epic Driver this year as it continues to be the No. 1 selling driver in the US according to Golf Datatech. Commenting on his Epic Driver during a recent Callaway podcast, Leishman said: ‘Performance is the most important thing to me (when choosing drivers).’ Also in the bag was a Callaway Steelhead XR 7-Wood, which he used to fantastic effect, having introduced it to his bag at the Dell Technologies Championship. Leishman favours the gapping that it provided him and the high launch, soft landing ball flight. Making 29 birdies during the week, including ten on Day One alone, Leishman was also hot with his Odyssey Versa #1W Putter, as he compiled rounds of 62, 64, 68 and 67 for a 23-under winning total.
