Abraham Ancer What's In The Bag?
At the start of 2022, it was announced that Abraham Ancer had signed a multi-year agreement with Callaway, putting several of the brand's clubs into play. After enjoying his most successful season to date in 2021, becoming the first Mexican to win a WGC event, we take a look at what clubs Ancer is currently using.
Abraham Ancer What's In The Bag?
Callaway Epic Speed Triple Diamond
At the start of 2022 Ancer had put the brand-new Callaway Rogue ST Triple Diamond (opens in new tab) in the bag but he has now gone back to the Callaway Epic Speed Triple Diamond model. It is lofted to around 9.5 degrees and has a Mitsubishi Tensei CK Blue 60 TX shaft.
TaylorMade SIM2 Max, Callaway Rogue ST Prototype
His fairway wood slots have also changed in 2022 after having put a set of newer Rogue ST models in. He right now appears to have a TaylorMade SIM2 Max model as his three-wood and then has what looks to be a Callaway Rogue ST Prototype as well. It has no markings on the wood and looks like no club we've seen but it has distinct outlines of the Rogue ST markings.
Srixon ZX, Miura MB TC-201
For a long time Ancer carried a TaylorMade Tour Preferred utility iron in his setup, but that has recently come out in favor of a Srixon ZX Forged model. The decision has seemed to pay off, an example of this being at the 2021 CJ Cup, where he holed out for an Albatross. (opens in new tab)
The rest of his irons though are made by Japanese golf club manufacturer Miura, specifically, the MB TC-201's, which offer the performance of a muscle back with the increased forgiveness of a cavity back. The shafts that Ancer uses are the Mitsubishi MMT 105 TX.
Miura HB-10 & Artisan Prototype
Ancer carries three wedges, two of which are made by a company called Artisan. They’re produced in Texas at Nike’s former ‘Oven’ facility, by master clubmaker Mike Taylor and his team. The brand make custom hand-crafted clubs and specifically state on their instagram page (opens in new tab) that they’re not sold in shops; you can only get fitted for them.
The 56 and 60 degrees models are made by Artisan, whilst his 52 degree wedge is a Miura HB-10. All three wedges feature a True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue Black S400 shaft.
Odyssey White Hot No. 5 Stroke Lab
Earlier this year a new addition to the bag was the Tri-Hot 5K #2 from Odyssey (opens in new tab), which featured a white back line, Japan pistol grip and a measurement of 32.75". However he has now gone back to a putter he used for many years out on Tour, the Odyssey White Hot No. 5 Stroke Lab.
In an article with PGATour.com, Ancer admitted that he has about 60 putters at his home in San Antonio, Texas. “I have a ton of putters just because sometimes I go through phases of tinkering and trying other putters and making my gamer jealous,” he said. “I like to maybe see something different for maybe a week or so, but then I go back to my gamer."
Titleist Pro V1x
The golf ball of choice for the Mexican is the Titleist Pro V1x (opens in new tab), which, alongside the Pro V1, is the most used golf ball on Tour. To help alignment, Ancer also marks his with three lines. Featuring a soft cast urethane elastomer cover and fast casing layer, the Pro V1x is arguably the best performing ball (opens in new tab) on the market, with consistent flight, distance and spin giving it superb performance.
Ancer has been using both Black Quail apparel and FootJoy shoes for a number of years. He is regularly seen wearing the extremely stylish Premiere Series Flint (opens in new tab) footwear, which is made from a soft full grain leather and luxurious calfskin. He has also been spotted wearing the Packard and Field models from the range as well.
