Tools Of The Trade: Steele’s Winning Clubs At Safeway

Brendan Steele captured his first PGA Tour title in his last 141 starts on Sunday — his last win came at the 2011 Valero Texas Open — by birdieing the last three holes to win by one stroke over Patton Kizzire. Steele shot rounds of 67-71-67-65 to capture the Safeway Open and post 18-under par. 

Check out the TaylorMade, Wilson and Titleist equipment he used.  

What’s In His Bag 

Driver: TaylorMade M2 (9.5°, Aldila Rogue Black I/O 70TX shaft)

3-wood: TaylorMade M2 (15°, Aldila NV 2KXV Green 85TX shaft)

5-wood: TaylorMade M2 5HL (21°, Aldila NV 2KXV Green 85TX shaft), 21 degrees

Irons: Wilson FG Tour 100 (4-PW; True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 Tour Issue shafts)

Wedges: Wilson FG Tour TC (50-08°; True Temper Dynamic Gold S400 Tour Issue shaft)

Putter: Scotty Cameron Futura X Prototype

Most Valuable Club: Wilson FG Tour TC


Steele put together good weeks in all aspects of his game to get a great result. Not finishing in the top-5 in any one statistical category, the sum of his parts was the top finish in strokes gained: total. The best aspect of his game, however, were his approaches and putting. We know that you need to putt well to win on the Tour, but his eighth place finish in strokes gained: approach was good enough to give his Wilson irons MVC honors.
