Through the World Golf Championship- Dell Match Play, the five players atop the money list on the PGA Tour are: Justin Thomas, Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele, and Viktor Hovland.

So what kind of drivers do the top money winners on Tour play?

This question was posed to me by a friend who’s just getting into the game. It was something I never thought about – I mean I sort of knew what brand they played based on their hat logo and whatnot – so I looked it up, and found it interesting that each of the five top money earners use a different driver. And not just a different model, but completely different brands.

Here’s the the list of the top-ranked money earners and the drivers they play – one of which may help earn even more green next week… a Green Jacket.
