Hunter Mahan is a full-bag Ping loyalist, and his Nome putter came to the forefront at the Shell Houston Open as he won for the second time this season.
He put the mallet in play just before the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play in February, looking for better alignment in his putts, and then rolled through the field including a win over Rory McIlroy in the championship match. At Redstone this week, he was fifth in the field in Strokes-Gained Putting at 1.612.
The rest of Mahan’s bag at Shell:
Driver: Ping G20 (9.5 degrees)
Fairway wood: Ping G20 (15 degrees)
Hybrid: Ping i15 (17 degrees)
Irons: Ping S56 (3-PW)
Wedges: Ping Anser Forged (56, 60 degrees)
Ball: Titleist ProV1x
