Adam Hadwin What's In The Bag?

Adam Hadwin (opens in new tab) last won on the PGA Tour at the 2017 Valspar Championship which just so happened to be his maiden Tour victory. Additionally he is one of the rare players who has managed to shoot 59 which he completed in 2017 at the Career Builder Challenge. But what does the two-time Presidents Cup player put into his bag at the moment? We take a look below.

Adam Hadwin What's In The Bag?

Driver

Hadwin has been a Callaway staff player for a few years now and after using the Epic Max LS for a bit he has now switched into the Rogue ST range. Like many other Tour professionals, he uses the Triple Diamond LS version and despite having not tested it, we have tried out the Rogue ST Max (opens in new tab). It is a worthy follow up to the impressive original Rogue and Mavrik models, seemingly delivering high levels of stability and consistency while maintaining competitive distance. The overall look is more premium while the performance will appeal to a range of player types as well.

Fairway Wood

Hadwin then uses a Callaway Epic Speed fairway but we are yet to confirm the loft on it because it seems to be some kind of Tour prototype. It is clearly a favorite though as the wear marks on the club are strong. 

Hybrid

We believe he also carries a Callaway Apex UW hybrid too and it has 19 degrees of loft, so clearly he prefers to use this hybrid rather than put another fairway wood in the bag. The club has been finding its way into several players' bags at the moment and it isn't hard to see why. Phil Mickelson was involved in its development and joined other Callaway staffers in calling for a “go to” club that better players can count on from the tee, fairway, or rough. 

Irons

Callaway Apex UT, Callaway Apex TCB

Moving to the irons, Hadwin has two different models in the bag at the moment. His four-iron is a Callaway Apex UT and then he has a set of the Callaway Apex TCB's going from five-iron down to pitching wedge. He did carry some Apex MB's until recently so clearly he wants a touch more forgiveness which the TCB's definitely offer. 

When we tested the TCB's we thought they ticked every box a lower handicapper is looking for. The tour-inspired shaping is immediately obvious, with the thin topline and narrow sole along with a premium satin finish. The hitting experience doesn’t disappoint either. The feel is crisp and solid off the face, a gentle thud sound contributing to a soft feel.

Wedges

Callaway Jaws MD5

He then carries three Callaway Jaws Mack Daddy 5 wedges and we think he has a 52, 56 and 60 degree setup. The Jaws MD5 wedges are constructed from 8620 mild carbon steel and the Centre of Gravity (CG) of the wedges is precisely placed to create a soft, crisp feel. A big focus has also been on the shape of the wedge, with Roger Cleveland using his 23 years of experience to create a profile that is appealing from all angles.

Putter

Odyssey White Hot OG #7

His final club in the bag is an Odyssey White Hot OG #7 which also has the new red Stroke Lab shaft as you can see above. The White Hot OG line of putters feature the iconic insert but Odyssey found a way of bringing it into the 21st century by using urethane. This means the original feel and sound of the old insert has been maintained. Varner uses an iconic shape as well, the 7, which has a fang aesthetic designed to help players line up their putts better and find the middle of the face more consistently. 

Ball

Callaway Chrome Soft X

His golf ball is the Callaway Chrome Soft X. The X model’s design differs from the Chrome Soft. Rather than having a dual core, it features two mantle layers between the core and cover. The softer inner mantle layer combines with a firmer outer mantle to increase ball speed off the face for those with faster swing speeds, and therefore total distance.
