Alex Noren What's In The Bag?

Here we take a look at the clubs Swede and Ryder Cup player Alex Noren uses out on Tour. He has been a Callaway ambassador for some time and currently has a full bag of Callaway equipment including ball.

Alex Noren What's In The Bag?


Callaway Paradym

Noren currently uses the newer Callaway Paradym driver but interestingly he uses the standard version and not the Triple Diamond model that a lot of Tour players put into the bag. For the first time ever, Callaway has introduced a 360˚ carbon chassis and, in another first, the engineers have done away with any trace of titanium in the body, saving weight to use elsewhere for more forgiveness. Looks wise, we see a dark blue carbon effect, which is a clear shift from the previous Rogue ST, a model Noren had in the bag for a while. Noren's driver is fitted with a Fujikura Ventus TR Blue 6 X shaft.

Fairway Wood

He then uses a Callaway Epic Speed Triple Diamond three-wood and we believe he has had this model in the bag for a while now which is not surprising to us. We have found that once players find a fairway wood they like and trust, it is often quite difficult to get them to change because it is the hardest slot in the bag to get right. 

We believe it has 14 degrees of loft and it is fitted with a Mitsubishi Diamana DF 80 TX shaft.


Callaway Apex Pro

Instead of another fairway wood Noren then uses a Callaway Apex Pro hybrid with 18 degrees of loft and it has a Project X HZRDUS Smoke Black RDX 90 6.5 shaft. It's more compact than the standard Apex 21 hybrid and produces a more penetrating flight. Looks wise, at address, there is definite iron-like profile to it so, if your irons stop at the 5, then there is a very easy flow to the set by adding this.

The Apex Pro is aimed at the better player who wants a long iron-type trajectory and can generate plenty of clubhead speed, with Callaway’s Face Cup Technology designed to deliver great speed and spin consistency across the face, which tempers the powerful flight and distance in order to retain accuracy.

Noren then uses a set of Apex Pro 19 irons which came out a few years ago now. They go from four-iron down to nine-iron which allows him to go seamlessly into his wedge setup. They are all fitted with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts which are probably the most popular iron shafts out on Tour.


Callaway Jaws MD5

Moving to the wedges, Noren uses Callaway Jaws MD5 wedges and they have 46 and 50 degrees of loft. We loved these wedges in testing because they had no significant weakness. They really excel at creating spin on longer pitch shots and full shots. They are at the level where you might want to think about landing the ball a yard or two further than normal on full shots to allow for the ball to zip back, especially in softer conditions. He also carries a Callaway Jaws Raw wedge as well with 58 degrees of loft. 


Odyssey O-Works 1W

His putter is an Odyssey O-Works #1 which is a blade design and he has had this style of putter in the bag for many years now. Clearly once he finds something he likes, he does not change very often. 


Callaway Chrome Soft X

His ball of choice is the Callaway Chrome Soft X. When put up against the regular Chrome Soft, and Pro V1x, the Callaway X model was the fastest, offering a big jump in ball speed over its family model, and a slight jump on the Titleist design. We felt the slight tradeoff here is the firmer feel around the greens, but the X did still produce good short game spin and control. Finally Noren also wears Nike apparel and their shoes.
