Marc Leishman's Final Round highlights from CIMB
Marc Leishman rolled to a five-shot victory at the CIMB Classic for his third PGA TOUR title in the last 19 months and fourth overall.
Despite hitting just 73 percent of his greens in regulation at TPC Kuala Lumpur's West Course (T46 in the field), Leishman made up for a mediocre ball-striking week with a red-hot putter that ranked tops in the field in putts per green in regulation (1.528 putts per round).
To put Leishman's impressive putting performance into perspective, he hit 14 greens in regulation on Friday but still managed to shoot 62. He followed the low round of the week up by shooting 67-65 over the weekend — all while never hitting more than 13 greens in regulation per round.
Leishman's custom Odyssey Versa #1 Red putter (White Hot insert) is a combination of two of the company's more popular designs. The red color on the head was initially introduced with O-Works Red, while the single white line on the flange is part of the Versa line and aides in keeping the face square at impact.
Here's a look at Leishman's entire equipment setup.
