Hideki Matsuyama wielded a new TaylorMade TP Collection Mullen Tour Prototype putter for the first time as he stormed home to win the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational by five strokes following a course-record 61 in the final round. 

REPORT: MATSUYAMA WINS WGC-BRIDGESTONE INVITATIONAL

Matsuyama, a Cleveland Srixon staff player, used a mixed bag of clubs including a Callaway GBB driver, TaylorMade 2017 M2 fairway wood, Callaway Apex hybrid, Srixon Z965 irons and Cleveland 588 RTX 2.0 wedges.

But the most intriguing addition to his bag was a new TaylorMade TP Collection Mullen Tour prototype putter that he used for the very first time - as indicated by the PGA Tour's Jonathan Wall earlier in the week.
