The Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village finished Sunday with an increasingly familiar name atop the leaderboard: Matt Kuchar. This is the second time Kuchar has won on the PGA Tour this year, after winning the WGC Match Play Tournament in February. Kuchar is now second to Tiger Woods in the FedExCup standings and, with the win, joined Woods as the only players to have won multiple times on Tour in 2013. Kuchar used his Bettinardi Matt Kuchar Series Model 1 putter throughout the tournament. 

Kuchar’s win is the third victory for a Bridgestone Golf staff player, including his earlier victory and Brandt Snedeker’s win at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am. This puts Bridgestone into a tie for third among the major manufacturers in total wins this year. The other manufacturers’ win totals are as follows:

  1. Nike Golf (5 wins)
  2. TaylorMade (4)
  3. PING (3)
  4. Bridgestone (3)
  5. Callaway (2)
  6. Titleist (2)
  7. Cleveland/Srixon (2)
  8. Wilson (1)

TaylorMade has the largest number of winning players, with all four victories coming from a different player. Nike Golf, with Woods claiming three victories, has three unique winners, as does PING, while Bridgestone, Callaway, Titleist and Cleveland/Srixon each counting two winning players so far.

TaylorMade continues to dominate club counts among PGA Tour players. Here’s how the No. 1 Company in Golf fared at Muirfield:
