GREENVILLE, S.C. – New driving iron. New driver shaft. Two-week-old putter.
Rhein Gibson has made some tweaks to his equipment lineup lately, and the positive effects were on full display at this week’s BMW Charity Pro-Am presented by SYNNEX Corporation.
The 33-year-old Australia native rallied from two back entering the third round of the rain-shortened 54-hole event, closing in 8-under 63 at Thornblade Club to win by three shots over Michael Miller.
Gibson had previously recorded six top-3 finishes on the Web.com Tour, but this week marks his first title. The Oklahoma Christian University alum moves to No. 7 on the Web.com Tour Points List, securing a spot in The 25 and a return to the PGA TOUR, which he played in 2016-17.
“I put a new driving iron in the bag this week, a Srixon driving iron … I used it a lot, and it was really, really good,” Gibson said. “I also put a new driver shaft in the bag, a new putter in the bag two weeks ago, and I finally saw some results, finally made some putts.”
