Patrick Cantlay Makes Equipment Changes Ahead of U.S. Open at Pinehurst

Published

Professional golfer Patrick Cantlay, known for his consistency on the PGA TOUR, has made significant equipment changes leading up to the prestigious U.S. Open at Pinehurst Resort.

Earlier this year, Cantlay surprised many when he transitioned from his trusted set of Titleist 718 AP2 irons to Ping irons. This move raised eyebrows as Cantlay had achieved numerous victories with his Titleist irons, which he had been using since 2017.

However, Cantlay’s Ping iron experiment was short-lived, and at the Memorial Tournament presented by Workday, he reverted to his familiar Titleist 718 AP2 irons, which feature custom grinds on their leading edges to suit Cantlay’s precise turf interaction preferences.

Aside from switching back to his trusted irons, Cantlay also delved into driver testing at Pinehurst, comparing his older TSR2 driver model to Titleist’s latest GT2 driver.

Following extensive testing, Cantlay took to Instagram to showcase his new Titleist GT2 driver, hinting at his endorsement of the club. As an equipment free agent, Cantlay’s choice to feature the GT2 driver on social media speaks volumes about his confidence in the club’s performance.

According to Titleist Tour representative J.J. Van Wezenbeeck, the pros are favoring the GT2 model for its enhanced distance, consistent spin rates, and improved sound quality. The GT2 driver is also praised for its easy launch, forgiveness, and appealing head shape at address, marking it as a top choice among professionals.

With these equipment adjustments, Cantlay, an eight-time PGA TOUR champion, aims to secure his maiden major championship victory at the 2024 U.S. Open hosted at the challenging Pinehurst No. 2 course.
