Winner’s bag: J.B. Holmes’s gear at the Genesis Open

February 18, 2019

With a mixed setup consisting of Srixon/Cleveland, Callaway, TaylorMade and Scotty Cameron gear, J.B. Holmes came from four shots back during the final round to win the Genesis Open. Holmes made a few recent changes to the bag, including the addition of Callaway’s Epic Flash Sub Zero driver at the Farmers Insurance Open and a Scotty Cameron 009M (Masterful) that received the nod at Riviera.

The Anser-style blade is made from soft carbon steel that gives the putter a soft, responsive feel preferred by a large contingent of Tour players. Holmes led the field in putting, picking up more than eight strokes with the putter. His lag putt from 51 feet, 4 inches to just 21 inches on the final hole set up a par that proved to be the difference at Riviera.

Here’s a full list of the gear Holmes used to get the job done:

Driver: Callaway Epic Flash Sub Zero (Fujikura Pro 83TX shaft), 10.5 degrees

3-wood: TaylorMade M2 3HL (Fujikura Pro 93TX shaft), 16.5 degrees

Irons: Srixon Z U85 (3-iron; True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue shaft), Srixon Z785 (4-PW; True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue shafts)

Wedges: Cleveland RTX 4 (50-MID, 54-MID and 60-LOW degrees; True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400 shafts)

Putter: Scotty Cameron 009M

Ball: Srixon Z-Star XV
