At his swing speed playing PING woods seems odd. They've never made the lowest spin heads. But I guess the contract $$$ must suffice haha.

Not to mention, high SS doesn’t necessarily mean high spin. There are two lower spinning models right now in the PING lineup than the G400 Max, so I think Tony will be ok with a PING driver.

Interesting that he is playing Modus 120x...would have thought something a bit more stout with his SS.  But hey...I guess they work for Stenson as well.

I thought he's at least 130X or even X7 like JDay, but they work.

He was playing Ping putter not long ago which made people say he's going PING for sure, but now he's playing Piretti, yay to mix bag!

From his last WITB last year, he was playing the TX in his irons and the X in his wedges.  His iron shaft is so worn it's hard to make out the flex, so I looked it up since I was surprised that he'd play an x in his irons.

Show me many other players in his "category", period...that is to say, there's only a handful of guys on tour with his strength/club head speed, most of whom are sponsored to play another driver's brand anyways.

Brandon Hagy is crazy long.  I know Cameron Champ played a PING driver at US Open.  There's really not many out there that have the "strength/clubhead speed" of Finau.  I think how ever many guys fall in that category, the ratio of PING vs others will fall in line with their ratio of sponsored golfers vs other manufacturers.

At his swing speed playing PING woods seems odd. They've never made the lowest spin heads. But I guess the contract $$$ must suffice haha.
i15, i20, i25, G30 LS Tec, G LS Tec, G400 LS Tec...

Not to mention, high SS doesn't necessarily mean high spin. There are two lower spinning models right now in the PING lineup than the G400 Max, so I think Tony will be ok with a PING driver.

Show me another player of his strength playing PING woods...minus Bubba*

Show me many other players in his "category", period...that is to say, there's only a handful of guys on tour with his strength/club head speed, most of whom are sponsored to play another driver's brand anyways.
Brandon Hagy is crazy long.  I know Cameron Champ played a PING driver at US Open.  There's really not many out there that have the "strength/clubhead speed" of Finau.  I think how ever many guys fall in that category, the ratio of PING vs others will fall in line with their ratio of sponsored golfers vs other manufacturers.

The idea that they can't adjust/modify the spin with hotmelt and shaft is silly.  They can literally make about any club work for anyone with the right combinations.  I don't know anything about that shaft, but it could be tipped 4", who knows??

The bag is definitely weird. Here is what it looked like before back in 2016

After that, he was using a white Nike bag with Crewe branding

Interesting to me that hes playing the G400 MAX driver.  Id be willing to bet not many guys on tour using the 400 MAX.  Going for the most forgiveness possible.

25% of Ping PGA Tour staffers are using the G400 Max, not including Finau
