Jordan Spieth fired a final round 1-under 69 to win the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola and season-long FedExCup title at East Lake Golf Club.
Spieth's Scotty Cameron 009 prototype — a TOUR-only model he's used for all six of his TOUR titles — was once again the most reliable club in his bag when it mattered most.
Plenty of players on TOUR have a trusty putter in the bag, but Spieth may be the only one who's still using the flatstick from his junior golf days.
"The 009 was my favorite putter [as a junior golfer]" Spieth said earlier this season. "Adam Scott and Geoff Ogilvy, two of my favorite golfers, used it, and that got me. I've been using it since I was 15, and I won't be changing anytime soon."
While Spieth has changed most of the equipment in his bag over the last few years, he said the feel he has with his putter has kept him from tinkering and making changes over the years.
"I realize technology changes," Spieth said, "but it feels right for me."
Spieth made a rare putter change during the final round of the BMW Championship when he swapped his trusty putter for his backup 009. However, the change was due to an issue with the putter shaft and not a lack of confidence.
Spieth went back to his 35-inch gamer at East Lake and led the field in strokes gained-putting (plus 7.036).
Here's a look at the rest of the Titleist equipment in Spieth's bag:
