Dawie van der Walt used strong iron play throughout the week at Highland Springs CC to record 24 birdies and an eagle over four rounds, on his way to a two-stroke victory over Smylie Kaufman at the Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper in Springfield, Missouri.
The 32-year-old South Africa native hit 61 of 72 greens in regulation for the week, tied for fifth in the field. He also ranked T9 in putts per green in regulation (1.672).
Van der Walt changed putters this week, using a Scotty Cameron GoLo 5 in Springfield. He didn't feel that he putted particularly well, but he believed that the change was good for him -- and he putted well enough to make two dozen birdies.
"I needed a change," said van der Walt. "Sometimes when I putt poorly, I just switch and just need to see a different putter. Need to forget about the old one."
Here's what was in van der Walt's bag this week at Highland Springs CC:
Driver: TaylorMade SLDR, 10.5 degrees
3-wood: TaylorMade Arrow Speed, 14.5 degrees
Hybrid: Adams Idea Super, 18 degrees
Irons (4-9): TaylorMade Tour Preferred blades
Wedges (48, 52, 56, 60 degrees): Titleist Vokey Design
Putter: Scotty Cameron GoLo 5
