Sam Burns WITB: What equipment did he use to claim 2023 WGC Match Play?

Sam Burns captured his fifth career win at the WGC Match Play. 

Burns, 26, was drawn alongside Seamus Power, Adam Scott and Adam Hadwin in Group 13 at Austin Country Club. 

He defeated Hadwin 3&2 in his opening match, beat Scott 1UP in his second match and then made it 3-0-0 with a 2UP victory over Power. 

He then beat Patrick Cantlay 2&1 in the Round of 16, before taking care of Mackenzie Hughes 3&2 in the quarterfinal. 

Burns needed extra holes to defeat his good buddy Scottie Scheffler in the semi-final before destroying Cameron Young 6&5 in the final. 

It was an emotional win and he hugged his wife Caroline Campbell in the immediate aftermath of his fifth victory.

It was the biggest payday of his career

Burns revealed one of the biggest confidence boosters coming into the event was switching driver. 

He told the media:

"I didn't really know what to expect coming into this week. This is my first time playing this event. I feel like I gained a little bit more confidence as each match kind of played on.
"And then playing Scottie this morning, I knew it was going to be a tough match and got off to a great start and then kind of got lost a little bit halfway through the round.
"Really, things kind of changed. I've got a new driver in play, the Callaway Paradym, and when I hit the tee shot on 12, I hit a really good one there and I feel like it kind of gave me a little bit of confidence after that."
