- Broberg’s victory is another for the popular Triple Diamond version of Callaway’s Epic Speed fairways. The model appears to be a more compact form, with a design likely to improve handling compared to the retail model. Olympic gold medalist Xander Sc Chaudele and world No.1 Jon Rahm play on Triple Diamond fairways. Unlike many of his fellow Tour pros, Broberg plays two completely different shafts in his two fairway woods.
Clearly a fan of a raw finish that rusts over time, the 35-year-old uses irons and shims which have all developed some rust over time due to the lack of a final coat of chrome applied. during production. The Swede also opts for a combination of hollow back long irons and muscular rear bladed short irons.
Broberg led the field in Strokes Gained: Putting for the week, earning more than three field strokes on the greens. His Timeless Scotty Cameron model is made of high quality stainless steel and features the squarer and slimmer profile of a Newport 2 model, with lead bands on the sole to achieve the desired weight and balance.
Broberg’s victory is the fifth with a Callaway Chrome Soft golf ball on the European Tour in 2021, with two major championships won with the brand’s premium lineup.
