Collin Morikawa shot an incredible seven-under-par 63 at Narashino Country Club in Inzai, Japan, to beat Eric Cole and Beau Hossler by six shots. With the win, Morikawa ends his more than two-year winless drought dating back to the 2021 Open Championship.

Take a closer look at the equipment Morikawa used, including a custom set of TaylorMade P7MB irons along with a Diamana putter shaft that Collin recently added to his golf bag just before the 2023 Ryder Cup in Rome.

Driver: TaylorMade SIM (Mitsubishi Diamana D+ Limited 60), 9 degrees

3-wood: TaylorMade SIM (Mitsubishi Diamana D+ Limited 80), 14 degrees

5-wood: TaylorMade Stealth 2, (Mitsubishi Diamana D+ Limited 80), 18 degrees

TaylorMade Stealth 2 Custom Fairway Wood

ADVANCED INVERTED CONE TECHNOLOGY Variable face thickness is engineered to maximize ball speed across the face while maintaining playability in a confidence inspiring shape. ULTRA LOW-CG DESIGN Center of gravity is positioned lower compared to the original Stealth™ Fairway, delivering a more centered CG projection for better performance off the deck without sacrificing distance. To accomplish this feat, engineers lowered CG by placing a heavy internal mass toward the rear of the club and lowering the crown by 2mm. 3D CARBON CROWN 3D carbon crown pulls mass away from the high toe area, allowing more weight to be positioned rearward for optimal forgiveness and maximum playability. V STEEL™ SOLE DESIGN This iconic TaylorMade technology stays true to its heritage by improving turf interaction and versatility. ADVANCED LASER ALIGNMENT Providing visual contrast between face and crown, the laser etched aid is designed to highlight directional alignment for boosted confidence and accurate aim. THRU-SLOT SPEED POCKET Our flexible Speed Pocket™ design is engineered to maximize ball speeds and produce additional forgiveness on low-face strikes.

Irons: TaylorMade P770 (4 iron), P7MC (5-6 irons), Custom P7MB (7-PW); True Temper DG MID 115 X100

Wedges: TaylorMade MG4 (50-09SB, 56-08LB, and MG4 TW 60 degrees; True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400)

TaylorMade Milled Grind 4 Custom Wedge

Milled Grind 4 utilizes laser etched Spin Tread and a raw face to provide better bite around the greens and superior spin in wet conditions. Refined shaping creates a smooth aesthetic that inspires creativity around the greens, while improved mass distribution provides a solid feel. IMPROVED SPIN IN WET CONDITIONS Spin Tread technology utilizes laser etching to channel away moisture and help retain spin in wet conditions. The same way that tire treads help your car stay connected to the road, Spin Tread redirects water at impact and creates more friction between the club face and golf ball to impart more spin than prior generations. REFINED SHAPING MG4 features refinements in shape and visual appeal with a focus on what players perceive at address. Details from the hosel blend, offset and leading-edge straightness were all inspired by the insights and preferences of the best players and most experienced designers. Compared to the previous MG3, MG4 showcases a slightly larger footprint that provides players with a sense of roundness, smoothness and improved ease of use. RAW FACE & NEW FINISH There’s a reason raw wedges are preferred by the game’s best players. The unplated material will rust over time to preserve consistent spin while also delivering better performance in wet conditions. A new refined finish with a slightly darker tint minimizes glare and blends seamlessly with the raw face for a unified appearance.
