Tony Finau won The Northern Trust on Monday at Liberty National on the first hole of sudden-death playoff against Cameron Smith. The win gave Finau his second PGA Tour victory, and his first mainland victory in the United States; his other win came at the 2016 Puerto Rico Open.
The Ping staffer uses a setup of mostly Ping clubs, including a G425 LST driver, a G400 Stretch fairway, Blueprint Forged irons, Glide Forged wedges and a custom Ping PLD Anser 2 putter. As a former Nike staffer, he also uses a Nike Vapor Fly Pro 3-iron, along with a Titleist Vokey SM8 WedgeWorks 60T lob wedge and a Titleist Pro V1 golf ball.
Check out the full specifications on Finau’s winning setup below:

PING G425 LST Driver
OUR TAKE: Some drivers offer flashy distance, while others provide sturdy stability. Ping’s new G425 drivers, though, checked both boxes for our testers. In his first time hitting the Turbulator-crowned driver, one GOLF tester called the G425 “wife material” due to its speed and forgiveness. “All my mishits went straight,” another said. Players also found that the impact sound sings a deep, booming note.
THE DETAILS: By combining tech from previous releases, Ping says it was able to design its most forgiving driver ever with the G425 Max. No wonder why testers found its performance dependable. The G425 Max drivers measure a USGA limit 460cc and have a 26-gram adjustable tungsten in the back of the heads to help increase launch and forgiveness. For golfers with a slice, Ping offers the G425 SFT draw-biased option, and for higher-speed players who need reduced spin, Ping offers the G425 LST.
