Playing a Titleist Pro V1x golf ball and a full bag of Titleist equipment, Titleist Brand Ambassador Sanghyun Park (Pro V1, 913D3 driver, 913Fd fairway metal, 910H hybrid, 913H hybrid, MB 714 irons, Vokey Design SM5 gap, sand and lob wedges, Scotty Cameron Newport GSS prototype putter) pulled away from the field with four straight birdies on holes 3 through 6, sealing victory at The KJ CHOI INVITATIONAL presented by CJ.
Four years ago, Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth was 17 years old and playing in the Junior Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, site of this year’s Ryder Cup.
“I remember when I was here four years ago and thinking, is there a chance that I could be here four years from now for The Ryder Cup? And kind of thinking, yeah, I’m supposed to be a senior in college, so I would have to leave school early and things go pretty well to be here. And what do you know. It’s pretty awesome to be here having stayed in the same place, and I think the same team room that we have now in the hotel. Back then, they showed us videos of the Junior Ryder Cup and guys that have gone on to become professional golfers since. Looking back on those videos that we watched and to know that I’m one of those guys now that’s representing the United States of America, it’s a really cool feeling.”
Admitting that he has been looking forward to this year’s Ryder Cup for a while, Spieth, who plays the Pro V1x golf ball and a full complement of Titleist golf clubs, went back to his Junior Ryder Cup roots.
“I found one of the special Scotty Cameron putter head covers I had from then. I’ve been using that for a month or so. I used it through the Playoffs just getting ready. I thought it was a cool thing to do. It was cool that I still had it.”
What’s in Jordan Spieth’s Bag?: Pro V1x, 910D2 driver (9.5), 915F fairway metal (15), 915Hd hybrid (20.5), AP2 714 irons (4-9), Vokey Design SM5 pitching (46), gap (52), sand (56) and lob (60) wedges, Scotty Cameron 009 prototype putter.
