D.A. Points leaned on a strong tee-to-green game to get in the mix, and then made a few key birdie putts down the stretch to win the Puerto Rico Open. The three-time TOUR winner found the fairway 83.9 percent (tied for first in the field) with a TaylorMade '16 M2 driver, and hit 88.9 percent of his greens in regulation with a split set of irons consisting of TaylorMade's game-improvement SLDR model and PING's i5 that debuted in 2005.
While most of Points' bag hasn't changed in the last few years, he put a new Sik Pro putter in play this week. The putter is the same model that's currently used by Bryson DeChambeau, who tied for second in Puerto Rico.
The putter features Sik's Descending Loft Technology design on the face. According to the company, "each plane descends in loft by one-degree thereby neutralizing every golfers’ inability to achieve a consistent shaft angle at impact." The end result is a putter that optimizes launch for a more consistent roll.
Here's a look at Points' entire bag setup.
Driver: TaylorMade '16 M2 (UST Elements Platinum shaft), 10.5 degrees
3-wood: TaylorMade Burner (Graphite Design Tour AD YSQst 75 shaft), 13 degrees
Hybrids: Ping G (Aldila NV 2KXV 85 shaft), 19 degrees; TaylorMade SLDR (Aldila Tour Green 85 shaft), 21 degrees
Irons: TaylorMade SLDR (4-6; True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue shafts); PING i5 (7-PW; PING ZZ65 shafts)
Wedges: Ping Glide 2.0 (52SS and 58TS degrees; True Temper Dynamic Gold S400 shafts)
Putter: SIK Pro
