McLachlin, who was admittedly struggling with his driver heading into this week, birdied three of the four par-5s at TPC Louisiana en route to his 67. Titleist fitted him with a Diamana White 63 X shaft in his 909 D2 driver (10.5 degrees) and a Diamana 73 X in his 909 F2 3-wood (15.5 degrees).
McLachlin won last year's Legends Reno-Tahoe Open to earn a two-year exemption on the PGA Tour, and has two top-25 finishes in 10 starts this season. A native of Hawaii, McLachlin's father, Chris, was the high school basketball coach of President Barack Obama at Punahou High School in Honolulu.
