Carlos Ortiz won his maiden PGA Tour title on Sunday after he held off challenges from World No.1 Dustin Johnson and Hideki Matsuyama to win the Houston Open and he did so with a fairly mixed bag of equipment, that included some pretty old irons.
The 29-year-old became the first Mexican-born PGA Tour winner in 42 years, while he also punched his ticket to the 2021 Masters at Augusta, something he had dreamt about since he was young.
Ortiz played the final holes brilliantly and after finding the par-5 16th green in two, the Mexican missed a great eagle opportunity, but the birdie still put him in the lead and he added a final gain at the par-4 last.
Using the new Ping G425 3-wood, it may not be long until we see Ortiz add the driver to his bag too, as he currently uses the Ping G400 Max model.
