Coming off the heels of his rookie season where he ranked #1 in Total One Putts from 10-15’ (T3 from 15-20’), #1 in GIR Putting from 5-10’, #1 in Total Eagles (18), #1 in Total Birdies (480, nearest competitor: 397) and #1 in Total Rounds in the 60’s, Sungjae Im captured his first career PGA TOUR victory at the 2020 Honda Classic, becoming the youngest winner in the event’s history.
Referred to by the Titleist Tour Staff as SJ, Sungjae Im trusts a full bag of Titleist equipment from tee-green. We decided to take a closer look at what's in SJ's bag to see how his setup has aided his recent success.
What's the one piece of equipment SJ uses on every shot? His Pro V1x golf ball.
SJ typically plays a cut with his driver and so using “the draw CG helps stabilize his flight when he misses on the heel,” according to Titleist Tour Rep JJ VanWezenBeeck.
SJ’s 3 wood and hybrid are fairly straight forward builds and fits, just like ones you can buy right off the shelves.
SJ became excited about his irons during the commercial shoot at the Memorial in 2019, according to VanwezenBeeck. “He put the T100s in two weeks later at the Travelers and they’ve been in the bag since. He really liked the feel and look of them from the start.”
According the Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill, “SJ is a very easy going player to work with, his set has changed some over the last year or so based on the courses he’s playing as well as his general setup. When I first met SJ he had a 52/58 in the bag and that then turned into 52/56/60.”
“SJ will change 60’s from time to time based on the firmness of the conditions, however these 60’s still are low bounce (60L and 60 T at 4 degrees). His specs never really change, same shafts, lofts, lie, and grips. One quirky thing on the grips is he likes them to be 10 ¼ inch in length when installed.”
“SJ is a very talented player and all of us have been waiting for this moment when he would get his first Tour win. His wedge play is rhythmic yet aggressive and confident,” Dill said.
SJ was a traditional Newport or 009 user until The Wyndham Championship of last year, according to Scotty Cameron Tour Rep Drew Page. "That week he put in a Scotty Cameron Phantom STR and since then he has played incredible golf," Page said.
"He sometimes has a problem taking the putter outside on the way back and has cut spin on the ball. This putter helps him take it back a little straighter with the stability and high MOI but also gives him a ton of feel with the soft face."
