Aaron Wise What's In The Bag?

A player who made a fast start to his PGA Tour career, winning at the 2018 AT&T Byron Nelson, Aaron Wise seemed to lose form after the win but since changing some of his equipment, his putter for example, he has risen back up the world rankings. Given the importance of his gear, we have gone into his specific bag setup below.

Aaron Wise What's In The Bag?

Driver

TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus

Wise's driver situation has changed of late. The young American did at several points in the past couple of years or so have the Callaway Epic Flash, TaylorMade M5 and a Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero in the bag.

However he appears to have put a TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus in there for now. This newer design has a 2-gram lighter carbon face with an advanced ‘inverted cone technology’ that, the brand says, has helped designers improve the forgiveness on offer. In our testing we were impressed with this, and we also liked the slight aesthetic changes made to the head as well, with the matte-black crown getting replaced by a gloss-black finish. The second generation Stealth also felt powerful through impact, and felt a fraction more muted than the previous generation as well.

His driver is fitted with one of the most popular shafts out on Tour right now, the Fujikura Ventus Black 6 X.

Fairway Wood

He then carries a TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus fairway wood as well. It has 15 degrees of loft and he used to carry a five-wood as well but this has come out for a hybrid right now.

The TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus fairway will suit high swing speed players who struggle to get standard fairways to launch correctly. The innovative sliding weight varies launch and feel, and together with the hosel provides a high degree of adjustability for those who need it. We believe Wise has it in a fairly neutral position and we also know it is fitted with a Fujikura Ventus Black 8 X shaft.

Hybrid

Instead of another fairway wood Wise then uses a TaylorMade SIM2 Max hybrid with around 19 degrees of loft, and it has a Project X HZRDUS Smoke Black RDX 100 6.5 X shaft. Clearly Wise has found a club he trusts in the SIM2 but if we do spot him testing or using the newer TaylorMade models, we will update this section. 

Irons

His irons start with a TaylorMade P790 UDI 2-iron and then a P790 three-iron but it should be said that these two irons come in and out of the setup. The rest of his irons are TaylorMade P750's and they go from four-iron down to pitching wedge. The P750's are an older iron from TaylorMade but we do still see some players put them into play because of the feel and workability on offer, combined with a touch more forgiveness when comparing to straight blade irons. 

Wedges

Titleist Vokey SM7, Titleist Vokey SM8

His wedges are Titleist Vokeys, two of which are SM7s in 52° (bent to 51°), 55° and a Titleist Vokey SM8 with 60° of loft. It is interesting he has not yet put the newer SM9's in the bag yet but if he does we will update this section as soon as possible. 

Putter

Wise has also changed his putter of later switching to a longer and older putter. The long putter that he’s using at the moment, a TaylorMade Ghost, once belonged to his college coach, the former Tour player Casey Martin.

“It was one of those things that I had tried before and I kind of forgot about it,” Wise told PGA Tour.com in November. “I thought it might be worth a shot.”

According to Golf.com, the only modification Wise has made is cutting it down from 49 to 46 inches since the putter can no longer be anchored. Wise only used the putter for a few months in college, but he won with the club and hung on to it as a result.
