Eddie Pepperell’s breakthrough European Tour win at the Qatar Masters at the weekend came after some major changes to his bag in recent months.
The 27-year-old, who saw off Oliver Fisher by one shot at Doha Golf Club, became a ‘Team Mizuno’ player last month and has a Mizuno MP-18 MMC Fli-Hi driving iron, JPX900 Tour irons and T7 wedges in his bag.
He also recently put the Titleist 917 D2 driver in play and, speaking afterwards, he hailed his performance from tee to green.
“I knew I was playing well, especially tee to green, so I expected a lot of myself this week and I guess to pull it off is amazing," he said. "Oli made a great run at the end and certainly put me under a lot of pressure but I put myself under a little bit myself too so I’m just happy and relieved.”
Runner-up Fisher, meanwhile, is also a member of ‘Team Mizuno’, playing MP-18 SC irons (4-9), along with MP-18 MMC Fli-Hi 2- and 3-irons and three T7 wedges.
