His meticulous driver setup, including the Qi10 8.0° driver with a Ventus Black 7X shaft, proved to be a formidable asset in his quest for victory.

Notably, Scheffler’s success extended beyond his driver, as evidenced by his flawless performance with the Spider Tour X putter.

Praising its simplicity and alignment benefits, Scheffler attributed his putting prowess to the innovative design of the Spider Tour X, featuring True Path alignment and a full sightline.

Reflecting on his journey to victory, Scheffler emphasised the importance of consistency and confidence in his equipment.
