His driver is set to the Neutral and Standard adjustability settings, and his shaft is cut to 44 ½”. In addition to his tournament-winning putt on Sunday, he also was 2nd in the field in strokes gained – putting and 1st in Putts Per GIR.

With the victory, he moved up to 14th in the FedExCup rankings (joining Patrick Reed, Gary Woodland, Kevin Kisner and Sang-Moon Bae in the top-20) and moved up to 17th in the world golf rankings. Congratulations, Chris!
