Tony Finau What's In The Bag?

What apparel and equipment does Tony Finau use out on tour? We take a look here. The American was a Nike staffer up until the company announced that they would no longer make golf equipment in August 2016, and was a free agent for a while before signing with Ping.

Tony Finau What's In The Bag?

Driver

Starting at the top of the bag he uses a Ping G425 LST driver (opens in new tab)which has only seven degrees of loft. It is the low-spin version of the G425 range. The Mitsubishi Diamana D+ Limited 70 TX shaft is tipped 1.5 inches, and the driver has a swingweight of D-6. It also measures at 45 inches which is quite long but because he is six-foot three, this is actually not that surprising.

Fairway

Callaway Rogue ST

His fairway woof slot has recently changed. He had been using a slightly older model, the Ping G400 Stretch, but this has come out for a Callaway Rogue ST model with 14 degrees of loft. 

Irons

Nike Vapor Fly Pro, Ping Blueprint

His longest iron in the bag is also the only Nike club that remains, a Nike Vapor Fly Pro three-iron. It has a Graphite Design shaft and was also the model that Brooks Koepka had in his bag for a long time as well. He then has a set of the Ping Blueprint (opens in new tab) irons as well which go from four-iron down to pitching wedge. The Blueprint irons are one of the best-looking and feeling bladed irons on the market. Admittedly for us amateurs they are extremely difficult to hit consistently but the top players like Finau will enjoy the feel, control and maneuverability on offer here. 

Wedges

Ping Glide 4.0, Titleist Vokey Design WedgeWorks

In the wedge setup his first two, at 50 and 56 degrees of loft, are Ping Glide 4.0 models. His other wedge is a Titleist Vokey WedgeWorks prototype, which is a model that we have seen pop up in a lot of other Tour bags.

Putter

The final club in the bag is the Ping PLD Anser 2 Prototype putter which is a move away from the Piretti prototype that had been in his bag for a long time. The Anser 2 is a classic shape and Finau's is 37 inches in length with 5 degrees loft. He made this change in roughly July 2021. “We started by showing Tony about five to six head options we thought he might like and quickly noticed in the testing process that the extra offset of the Anser hosel allowed him to set his hands more neutral at address,” said Ping Tour rep Kenton Oates.

Ball

Titleist Pro V1

His golf ball is the Titleist Pro V1 (opens in new tab). One of the best golf balls (opens in new tab) money can buy, the Pro V1 got five stars in our review and it is easy to see why. It provides superb all-round performance with impressive distance in the long game, excellent control into the greens and high levels of consistency throughout with a soft feel. It was also particularly impressive when playing in the wind.
