Dustin Johnson's slo-mo swing is analyzed at RBC Canadian
Dustin Johnson shot a final round 6-under 66 to secure his third PGA TOUR title of the season at the RBC Canadian Open. The longest club in the bag was once again the difference for Johnson, who ranked second in the field in Strokes Gained: Off-the-tee (plus-7.540) with a TaylorMade M4 driver he's been using on and off this season.
Johnson opened 2018 with M4 during his Sentry Tournament of Champions victory but swapped it for M3 at the Genesis Open. The club reappeared at the RBC Heritage and has been a bag staple ever since.
While M3 offers multiple forms of adjustability, Johnson felt M4 offered a slightly flatter, more controlled ball flight off the tee.
Johnson made one change to the driver this week, returning to his usual Fujikura Speeder 661 Evolution 2.0 Tour Spec X shaft. Johnson briefly switched to Project X's HZRDUS Black at the U.S. Open.
Here's a look at Johnson's entire TaylorMade equipment setup:
Driver: TaylorMade M4 (Fujikura Speeder 661 Evolution 2.0 Tour Spec X shaft), 10.5 degrees
3-wood: TaylorMade M4 3HL (Project X HZRDUS Black 6.5 95X shaft), 16.5 degrees)
Irons: TaylorMade P-730 DJ Proto (3-PW; True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts)
Wedges: TaylorMade Milled Grind (52 and 60 degrees; KBS Tour Black 130X shafts), TaylorMade Milled Grind Hi-Toe (64 degrees; KBS Tour Black 130X shaft)
Putter: TaylorMade Spider Tour Black
Ball: TaylorMade TP5x
