The clubs Jordan Spieth used to win the 2022 RBC Heritage
Jared C. Tilton
Jordan Spieth could have had a ton of regret for missing an 18-inch putt Saturday at the RBC Heritage. A Sunday 66, however, erased that gaffe, and after outlasting Patrick Cantlay on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff, Spieth had a win on a Sunday with a leader board loaded with contenders.
Though it was a nifty up-and-down from the bunker on the 18th hole at Harbour Town that gave Spieth the overtime win, it was a pair of eagles on the two front-nine par 5s—including a hole-out from the greenside bunker on No. 2 and a 24-foot putt falling at the fifth—that jumpstarted Spieth’s rally. The good vibes continued with a 15-footer for birdie at the eighth before a couple of bogeys slowed things down.
Spieth got things ramped back up with a 12-footer for birdie at the 13th and finished things off with an iron to 10 feet at the last and one more putt to post 13 under par. Spieth then endured a lengthy wait (he was the sixth-to-last group off) that saw several contenders come up short while one, Cantlay, knotted him in regulation.
Still, it really wasn’t Spieth’s work on the greens that won him the tournament. He ranked 60th in strokes gained/putting at -2.536 strokes. Rather it was off the tee (plus 4.324 strokes, ranked fourth) and into the greens (plus 4.797, ranked 10th) that served Spieth well on Hilton Head Island.
Spieth's driver is a 10-degree Titleist TSi3 with a Fujikura Ventus Blue 6X shaft, a model and shaft combination that Spieth used for his last victory at the 2021 Valero Texas Open. The irons are Titleist’s latest version of the T100. Spieth also uses a Titleist Vokey SM9 pitching wedge that has the same True Temper Project X 6.5 shaft as the rest of his irons.
