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 this is no longer the case because of the sheer mix-and-match nature of his golf equipment setup right now. That being said most of his setup at the moment is filled with Titleist clubs so let's get to the specifics.

Billy Horschel What's In The Bag?

Titleist TSR3

At the top of the bag he carries a Titleist TSR3 driver and it has nine degrees of loft. It is also fitted with a Fujikura Ventus TR Black 6X shaft. In our testing we felt the TSR3 was a premium looking and performing driver that is likely to outperform your gamer, especially if you go through a custom fitting. The feel is powerful and it strikes the ideal balance of control with competitive ball speed and distance.

The five-position SureFit CG track carries over from the TSi3 but it has been neatened up so the weight sits more flush in the extreme positions and it is quicker to adjust thanks to a shorter screw thread.


Titleist TSi2

He then has a couple of TSi2 fairway woods. 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 TSR fairway woods 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. 


Titleist 620 CB, Titleist 620 MB

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, “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.


Titleist Vokey Design SM9

He then has three Titleist Vokey SM9 wedges 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.


Ping Sigma 2 Tyne 4

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. 


Titleist Pro V1

Horschel uses the Titleist Pro V1 golf ball and has done for some time. One of the best golf balls 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.
