Lucas Herbert, a 25-year-old from Australia, claimed his first ever PGA Tour victory on Sunday at the 2021 Butterfield Bermuda Championship. He held off second-place finishers Patrick Reed and Danny Lee to win by one stroke.

Herbert is a TaylorMade staffer, and he used a bag full of TaylorMade equipment this week in Bermuda. A particular point of note: Herbert does not use a 5-iron in his setup. We’ll update you with more information on exactly why he doesn’t carry a 5-iron in a future story, but for now, we detail Herbert’s winning setup below.

Driver: TaylorMade SIM2 (Project X HZRDUS Smoke Green shaft), 9 degrees

TaylorMade SIM2 Driver

OUR TAKE: Asked to describe the look of the new SIM2 drivers, our testers labeled them as “futuristic,” “modern” and “fast.”  And who can argue when there’s all of that new-age carbon on the sole? While TaylorMade’s SIM2 drivers carry on the original name of the SIM (Shape in Motion) drivers that excelled in 2020, the company has made a few big changes. One initially skeptical GOLF tester took notice of the improvements: “I tried to hit the original SIM last year, but this new one feels a million times more solid. This is going to be tough to beat.”   THE DETAILS:  To craft its new SIM2 heads, TaylorMade combined proven technologies from recent years (TwistFace, Inertia Generator, Speed-Injected faces, thru-slots, carbon crowns) with all-new designs to make the drivers more forgiving. Most notably, a new sole plate is made up entirely of carbon composite to save weight, and there’s a new blue aluminum back ring, which connects the rear sole to the crown. The new pieces work together to drive weight back for better performance on mishits. Not a fan of the blue colorway? TaylorMade is now allowing for personalized color changes on five different areas in the heads through its MySIM2 custom platform.  Check out 150+ reviews from our gear experts in the ClubTest 2021 collection
