story
Six wins on the
LPGA Tour, including
the 2021 KPMG
Women’s PGA
Championship. Also
won the 2021 Olympic
Gold Medal.
sister act
I’ve been swinging
golf clubs since
I started walking,
using those cute
plastic golf clubs at
first. As I got older,
I was never really
lacking for golf
equipment. I was
always getting
hand-me-down
clubs from my older
sister, Jess, and I
would be very
happy when I would
get a full set. I was
that annoying little
sister who got
everything.

driver

specs Titleist TSi1, 10°, Graphite Design Tour
AD IZ 6S shaft.

Ever since my rookie year, I’ve struggled
to find a driver that suits me. I like to hit
a draw, and when I tested this one, I fell
in love with it. The slightly smaller look
appeals to me, too. I won at Lake Nona
the first week I put it in the bag.

fairway woods/hybrid

specs Titleist TSi2, 16.5°, Fujikura Ventus
Red 70S shaft; Titleist TSi2, 21°, Mitsubishi
Tensei AV Raw Blue 75S shaft; Ping G425, 19°,
Fujikura Ventus 80S.

I like that I can see the face on the
7-wood at address. I feel like I can hit
it high, and that’s what I need because
I tend to have a low trajectory

irons

specs Titleist T100 (5-PW), Aerotech
SteelFiber i80cw F4 shafts, Golf Pride Tour
Velvet grips.

I’ll take a look at the new T100s at some
point, but the consistency of these will
be tough to beat. I hit controlled shots at
all times, a lot of 90 percenters. But when
you hit controlled shots, you’re generating
more speed. I’ve had irons in the past that
got a little jumpy with that, but not these.

wedges

specs Titleist Vokey SM8 (50°, 54°, 58°),
Aerotech SteelFiber i95cw S shafts.

A 4-degree gap has been my wedge setup
since I was a junior. My bounces are pretty
standard, and I don’t change them very
often. My boyfriend’s favorite number is 22,
so my 58-degree has 22s all over it. It
reminds me of him while I’m playing.

putter

specs Scotty Cameron by Titleist Special
Select Squareback 2 tour prototype, 35 inches,
3.5 degrees, Scotty Cameron Pistolini grip.

This putter has a longer flange than the
putter I was using, and that longer align-
ment line works for me. As a junior I used
a lot of mallets, but I had a choppy stroke
back then. Going to a blade I could see and
feel my stroke smoothing out.

fun flair
I always raid the
putter-cover stash
when I go to Scotty
Cameron’s studio.
This one is fun. I’ve
had it for a couple of
years. I also have a
U.S.A. one from the
Solheim Cup. In all
I probably have more
than a dozen putter
covers.

By the numbers
my ball superstition
is using numbers 1,
2, 3, 4 on Thursday
through Sunday. I
was using the 2017
version of the Pro
V1 until going to
the 2021 model this
year. I get more peak
height and carry, and
it feels great around
the greens.

travel buddies
These tiny stuffed
animals hang on
my bag, and I travel
around the world
with them. My best
friend gave me lions,
and I have ones from
my mom, caddie
and from a Czech
children’s show. It’s
quite the group.
