Team TaylorMade’s Lucas Herbert claims wire-to-wire victory to claim his second European Tour title
Playing TaylorMade's SIM2 driver and TP5 golf ball, Lucas Herbert returned to the winner’s circle with a three shot victory at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.
Herbert recorded his first European Tour victory at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic last year. Today, with rounds of 64-67-70-68, saw Lucas claim his second win with a full bag of TaylorMade clubs and ball.
NEED TO KNOW
Uniquely, Lucas does not game a 5 iron under the premise that he can hit all the shots and distances he needs without it. Meaning he can make better use of an extra wedge for the bottom of the bag and can play a 5 wood or 2 iron at the top to fill the gap between the longest iron and first wood
Lucas switched from TP5x into TP5 before his win in Dubai 2020 to manage his spin control and transitioned into the new 2021 TP5 earlier this year
Herbert has the exact same lie angle (58 degrees) in every club which is extremely unique
Herbert led the field in both scoring average and total strokes gained this week
Moves to a career best #55 in the OWGR
The victory also gives Herbert a place in the 2021 Open Championship in two weeks
