Seung-Yul Noh held on to win the Zurich Classic of New Orleans by two shots for his first PGA TOUR title. Noh made an equipment change that paid immediate dividends this week, switching from Nike's Method 006 blade putter to a Method 005 mallet model.
According to Nike Tour reps, the 22-year-old liked the way the mallet looked, the additional head weight — it was slightly heavier than his Method 006 — and how it lined up at address. He finished the week 11th in strokes gained-putting with the new putter. Noh entered the week ranked 121st in strokes gained-putting.
Here's a look at the rest of the equipment in his bag.
