Harris English switched to a different PING fairway wood this week at the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Harris English claimed his first PGA TOUR victory on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, closing with two birdies over his final three holes to win by two shots over Scott Stallings and Phil Mickelson.
The 23-year-old pulled his PING G25 driver and 3-wood at the beginning of the week and went back to his old PING G15 driver and G5 3-wood. The reason for the switch? English was hitting both really well and figured a change could give him a boost. He averaged 289.5 yards off the tee (69th in the field) and hit 67 percent of his fairway for the week.
English also recently put PING's new Nome TR putter in the bag and finished 17th in the field in strokes gained-putting (.860).
