Viktor Hovland claimed his third PGA Tour victory with a dominant display at the World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba.
The Norwegian was able to successfully defend his title in no small part thanks to his power and precision off the tee. Using his PING G425 LST he ranked 20th in the driving distance stats and tied for fourth in driving accuracy.
The 24-year-old’s iron play was also in fine form, finishing the week ranked tied seventh in the Greens in Regulation stats. Hovland had recently switched to PING’s latest i59 irons but returned to his trusty i210 models for his trip to Mexico.
He carries two of PING’s brand-new Glide Forged Pro wedges, to go along with a single Vokey SM8 design.
The final weapons in Hovland’s arsenal are a custom-made PING PLD DS 72 putter and the Titleist Pro V1 golf ball.
