Brian Harman What's In The Bag?

A two-time winner on the PGA Tour, and a player with a runner-up finish at the 2017 US Open, Brian Harman (opens in new tab) has been on Tour for a number of years now so let's take a look inside his bag. Harman, after having previously used a mixture of clubs from TaylorMade and Titleist, is now a staff player for the latter, using pretty much a full bag of clubs from the brand.

Brian Harman What's In The Bag?

Driver

Titleist TSi2

Starting at the top of the bag he has a Titleist TSi2 driver (opens in new tab) at nine degrees. He briefly tested out the smaller Titleist TSi3 (opens in new tab) model but the more forgiving TSi2 has gone back in and it looks to be staying. At address, we found the TSi2 to look generous in size but not too big that it looks chunky and unwieldy. It also has a more rounded toe compared to the previous TS2 which really adds to the inviting aesthetics.We also noticed how good it sounded through impact - a powerful acoustic thanks to the appealing 'thud' sound.As an overall package it neatly balances distance with forgiveness and consistency, making the Titleist TSi2 truly impressive.

Fairways

Moving on to the fairway woods Harman carries two Titleist model. The first is a 13.5 degree Titleist TSi2 model (opens in new tab), and he then also chooses to carry a Titleist TS2 fairway wood which has 16.5 degrees of loft. The TSi2 is a model that lots of Tour professionals have put in the bag because it launches nice and high and is super forgiving across the face, thanks to the deeper and lower CG. This makes it a thoroughly playable fairway wood for golfers up and down the handicap range.

Irons

Titleist U500, Titleist 620 CB

Shifting to the irons he carries three U500 utility irons from three-iron to five-iron. Then the rest of his irons are Titleist 620 CB's and these go from six-iron down to pitching wedge. 

Wedges

Titleist Vokey SM7

When it comes to wedges he uses three Titleist Vokey SM7 (opens in new tab)'s with 50, 54 and 60 degrees of loft. It is interesting, as a Titleist staff player, that Harman has not put the newer SM8 (opens in new tab) or SM9 (opens in new tab) models in the bag but clearly that just suggests he trusts the performance on offer from the older SM7 wedge. 

Putter

TaylorMade Spider OS CB

He is another Tour pro with the TaylorMade Spider putter, however his is the OS Counter balance version which he has been using for a number of years now. It has a very large and forgiving footprint but of late he has also been spotted with an Odyssey Sabretooth putter in the bag so we will see which model gets the nod on a permanent basis. 

Ball

Titleist Pro V1

Finally he uses a Pro V1 (opens in new tab) golf ball which is one of the best golf balls in the game, as shown by our five star review. It launches lower and spins less than the Pro V1x and overall it provides superb all-round performance. A couple of other key difference between this and Pro V1x (opens in new tab) is the Pro V1 feels fractionally softer and offers a lower peak height.
