Tools: Howell III Equipment Change Leads To Victory

Charles Howell III overhauled his equipment setup in recent weeks changing from PXG to Titleist between his final start of the 2017-18 at the BMW Championship and his first start of the 2018-19 season at the CIMB Classic four weeks later.

The change proved immediate dividends as Howell III went wire-to-wire at the RSM Classic last week to notch his first PGA Tour victory since 2007.

Howell III ball struck the field at the RSM to death, hitting a ridiculous 89% (64/72) of his greens in regulation, tops in the field. With so many looks at birdie, Howell was able to convert 25 times, which was second in the field, including the putt that gave him the trophy on the second sudden-death playoff hole.
