2019 major winners’ WITBs

Published

on

With the conclusion of the Tour Championship two weeks ago, and the kickoff of the 2019-2020 season at next week’s Military Tribute at The Greenbrier, we’re presently sitting in the one week in the PGA Tour calendar in which we can officially look back at the golf season that was—from a WITB standpoint, at least.

With no PGA Tour WITB to report on this week, then, we’re going to take a look at the tools the four major championship winners used to carve their names on golf’s register of the immortals.
