Billy Horschel What's In The Bag?

Take a look at the equipment used by American Billy Horschel

Billy Horschel What's In The Bag?

What does the American carry in his bag every week on Tour? We take a look below. Horschel was signed with PXG however it appears this is no longer the case because of the sheer mix-and-match nature of his golf equipment setup right now. 

Billy Horschel What's In The Bag?

Driver

Titleist TSi3

At the top of the bag he carries a Titleist TSi3 driver (opens in new tab) and it has nine degrees of loft. It is also fitted with a Ventus shaft. The TSi3 was one of very few drivers to get five stars from us in our review. The compact look will suit the eye of the better player, but many more abilities have the potential to benefit from the more varied adjustability and extra forgiveness on offer. Our testing, after being custom fitted, showed it was longer and straighter than the TS equivalent, producing longer but more playable distance.

Fairways

He then has a couple of TSi2 fairway woods. (opens in new tab) which have 15 and 18 degrees of loft respectively. They are both fitted with Project X HZURDUS Smoke Black shafts. it is interesting Horschel opts for the TSi2 and not the TSi3 fairway wood although we would guess this is because of the extra forgiveness on offer. The fairway wood slot is one of the most difficult parts of the bag to get right and as such we don't expect Horschel to change any time soon given his success with this setup. 

Irons

Moving to the irons he interestingly carries a Titleist 620 CB three-iron, and then from five-iron down to pitching wedge he has a set of Titleist 620 MB's, replacing the set of Ping Blueprints that were in his bag for a while. Interestingly he has often decided against using a four-iron but during his victory at The Memorial Tournament he was carrying a four-iron. As such we can assume this club comes in and out of the setup. Interestingly Horschel's irons are specifically made for him with Titleist Tour rep JJ VanWezenbeeck making some extreme modifications to get the 620 MB to fit his game.

“Billy already loved the look and feel of the 620 lineup and wanted a one-piece forged construction,” VanWezenbeeck told Golf.com, “so we were part of the way there.” Then Titleist bent each head a full club weak which is very rare out on Tour. Adding a degree of loft increases bounce by one degree, which meant Horschel’s 8-iron was now playing like a 9-iron at a “full club weak.” The modifications also added 3 degrees of bounce to each head as well.

Wedges

Titleist Vokey Design SM9

He then has three Titleist Vokey SM9 wedges (opens in new tab) with 52, 56 and 62 degrees of loft respectively. The SM9 was another Titleist club that got five stars in our review which is no surprise given how many top professionals use the model, regardless of whether they are contracted by Titleist or not. It is a top-quality wedge because of the high levels of consistent spin, great feel and bags of versatility thanks to the 23 loft and bounce options that are available across the six different sole grinds.

Putter

Finally he uses a Ping Sigma 2 Tyne 4 putter which has been in the bag for a while now. The Sigma 2 putters were released in 2018 and the were designed to put greater impetus on soft feel.  “The Sigma 2 putters are engineered to bring a new level of performance and excitement to our putter line,” said John K. Solheim, Ping President at the time. 

Ball

Titleist Pro V1

Horschel uses the Titleist Pro V1 golf ball (opens in new tab) and has done for some time. 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.
