Winner's bag: What Zach Johnson used to win The Open

When the pressure is on and you’re in need of some putts to fall, it’s good to have “old faithful” in your hands. That’s what Zach Johnson termed his SeeMore FGP putter—a blade-style putter that he has used since 2001 and his days on the Nationwide Tour. In March, Johnson tried a Scotty Cameron by Titleist Futura X5R for one event, but quickly returned to the SeeMore, which is 34 inches long with 2.5 degrees of loft.


Johnson’s SeeMore, which has been in the bag now for all 12 of his PGA Tour wins, delivered the critical putts when needed, including a 25-footer at the 72nd hole that propelled him to the playoff, and then birdie putts on the first two holes of overtime to grab the lead and eventually win his second major title.

Here are all of Johnson’s clubs and ball that he used at the Old Course at St. Andrews, including a Titleist 712U 3-iron he put in the bag this week.
