  • Matthew’s P760 2-iron, used as a driving iron, is complemented by a 4-PW set of P750 Tour Proto Irons, which he prefers the shape, workability and forgiveness of. He has them equipped with Nippon’s N.S. Pro Tour 130x shafts.
  • A dynamic wedge player, Wolff generally employs a 3-wedge setup (in addition to PW) and this week was no exception, opting for a 52°, 56° & 60° (bent to 62°) setup in the Milled Grind (raw).
  • Wolff made a quick switch into TaylorMade’s Spider X Putter following it’s debut, having played it in each of his tournaments as a professional to date. Matthew plays his single bend model at 33″ in length.
  • With the win, Wolff is projected to rise more than 1500 places in the Official World Golf Rankings – from #1659 into the top 150.
