WITB Winner’s Bag: Sepp Straka, 2023 John Deere Classic

Sepp Straka cracked the top 30 in the world Sunday with his victory at the John Deere. Let that sink in. Sepp Straka, top 30. Sitting ahead of Hideki, Shane Lowry and Adam Scott. How many of you could pick him out of a lineup of PGA Tour players? 

Online, we confirmed he is on Srixon’s tour staff (by default, also Cleveland Golf’s staff, which like Srixon is owned by Dunlop). He plays current model Srixon irons and their ball. He carries Cleveland wedges. His driver and fairway metals of choice? TaylorMade Stealth 2. No contract. 100% his choosing. Good choice.

Key takeaways:      

  • His driver shaft will cost you an additional $300 if you order from a custom fitter, but for Straka, no extra charge, because he doesn’t pay for shitz.
  • He doesn’t play with an Odyssey Jailbird Versa putter. Had he used one Sunday, he certainly wouldn’t have hit his 2nd shot in the water on 18 and would have posted a 59.
  • The big boy, who can hit the ball higher than a Ben Franklin kite on a breezy day, played the tourney with a TaylorMade 21-degree 7-wood. I bet he drops that club for driving iron at Royal Liverpool in a couple of weeks.
