Troy Merritt not only won the Quicken Loans National, but he got Wilson Staff back in the winner’s circle (Padraig Harrington also won earlier this year at the Honda Classic using a set of Wilson irons).
Merritt wielded the company’s FG Tour V4 irons. Merritt’s set makeup was a 2-iron that he put in the bag this week, no 3-iron, then 4-iron through pitching wedge.
Merritt hit 80.56 percent of his greens at the Robert Trent Jones G.C. while the field averaged 71.32.
Merrit’s putter also warrants mention as he was 1.165 strokes gained/putting using a Yes! C-Groove Mollie Tour—a heel-shafted half-mallet reminiscent of Odyssey’s #9 model.
