WITB: Francesco Molinari


What’s in the bag: Find out what clubs Francesco Molinari used to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational

Francesco Molinari had a brand new set of clubs and a new ball for his victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and first since announcing an equipment deal with Callaway earlier in the week. 

The Italian started the week with an ace on the par-three 7th hole with his Apex Pro 19 4-iron and Chrome Soft X golf ball, and finished in style with a 44-foot birdie putt on the 18th with his new Odyssey Toulon Madison Stroke Lab putter to wrap up a two-shot victory over Matt Fitzpatrick. 

His final round eight-under 64 included what he called his ‘best putting round ever’, gaining 4.237 shots over the field, and a driving accuracy of 85.71% with his Callaway Epic Flash Sub Zero Driver.

“First week as a Callaway player, so happy to see that the switch I made wasn’t as crazy as some people thought,” said Molinari. “The clubs are good for me and I showed it this week.

“I need to say thank you to the Callaway team because they fit it into the, fitted me into the new clubs very smoothly and it’s been a very easy transition.

“I was saying before, it’s probably my best putting round ever. I started making two great putts at the 1st and 2nd for birdie and par and then just kept going, hit the ball reasonably well, I won’t say it was my best, but, yeah, the putting was just incredible.”

It was Molinari’s first victory since claiming the Open Championship in July last year.
