Sam Burns is at the top of the leaderboard at The Valspar Championship, as he looks to successfully defend his 2021 victory. If Sam wins, this would be his 3rd victory over the past 11 months. Plus Adam Hadwin and Xander Schauffele are in contention, and Team Callaway wins on the European Tour. Here are our top stories today.
Sam Burns WITB – Valspar Championship
Here’s what Sam Burns has in the bag this week:
Rogue ST Triple Diamond Driver (10.5°) – Fuji Ventus Blue 7X Shaft
MAVRIK Sub Zero Fairway Wood (17°) – Fujikura Ventus Black 8X Shaft
Apex UW (21°) – Fujikura Atmos Blue Hybrid 8X Shaft

Burns first put the Rogue ST Triple Diamond Driver in the bag at the Farmers Insurance Open, and has said that in addition to the consistent ball speeds, he likes the dispersion that he gets with this driver, particularly off of his mis-hits. Sam is averaging over 308 yards per drive this season, and he leads the field in SG: Off The Tee this week.
Sam has used his trusted Odyssey O-Works Black #7S for years and he relies on the alignment that he gets from the shape. Team Callaway is already coming off of a win today for Shaun Norris on the European Tour.
