Brooke Henderson What's In The Bag?
Henderson became the most successful Canadian golfer to play on the PGA and LPGA Tours in 2019 after she collected her ninth professional tournament victory at the Meijer LPGA Classic. She has gone on to win four more times on the LPGA including her 2nd Major title at the 2022 Amundi Evian Championship. What does she put in her bag out on Tour? Let's take a look.
Brooke Henderson What's In The Bag?
TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus
Henderson was affiliated with Ping for a very long time but at the start of 2023 she signed with TaylorMade and therefore has a full set of clubs made by the brand, as well as golf ball.
At the time Henderson said; “As a player, consistency with my driver and control with my irons are key. I love hitting driver because power is a big part of my game, and Stealth 2 Plus has helped me add distance, which is always great.
"With this new driver it's really nice to be aggressive with it, because it can take a lot of power if you have it." As mentioned this new model is the TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus which has found its way into the bags of many top players and she got off to a good start with the new driver, winning her first start of 2023 at the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions.

TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus
She then uses two TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus fairway woods as well, with 15 and 18 degrees of loft. These woods will suit high swing speed players who struggle to get standard fairways to launch correctly. The innovative sliding weight varies launch and feel, and together with the hosel provides a high degree of adjustability for those who need it.

TaylorMade Stealth 2 Rescue
Henderson then decides to use a TaylorMade Stealth 2 hybrid with 22 degrees of loft. Henderson has used hybrids and rescue clubs for a long time now and we have seen more and more Tour players put these types of club in the bag as they are easier to hit than longer irons.
Then, in the irons she has TaylorMade P790's from five-iron to pitching wedge. The TaylorMade P790 irons will appeal to a broad range of players. They offer a great blend of distance and forgiveness in a compact clubhead. The Speed Pocket in the clubhead helps to create greater forgiveness and consistency while the use of SpeedFoam dampens vibration, creating quite an unusual sound and feel at impact.
But the results are impressive with consistently long and straight ball flights. The use of tungsten weighting helps to further assist forgiveness, as does the inverted cone face.

TaylorMade Milled Grind 3
Henderson then carries three TaylorMade Milled Grind 3 wedges with 50, 54 and 60 degrees of loft. From a looks perspective, we really liked these wedges in both chrome and black finishes and we also enjoyed the spin on offer in testing. Raw face technology means the MG3 wedges have an un-plated surface material that rusts over time to maintain consistently high spin generation in wet conditions.

TaylorMade Spider GT Centre Shaft
Finally her putter has changed of late as well. She had been using a Ping Cadence TR – Ketsch C but she has now put a TaylorMade Spider GT Centre Shaft putter in the bag. In testing, we felt the putter provides a good roll and felt solid on impact thanks also to its new Pure Roll 2 face insert. The club also interestingly places the shaft towards the central alignment line on the putter, which may or may not be to every golfer's tastes, but it did make it seem like it was easier to line up the putt with our hands. Clearly Henderson also likes this design element as well.

Finally she uses a TaylorMade TP5x golf ball. She had been using a Titleist Pro V1, but the Canadian signed with TaylorMade at the start of 2022. Her TP5x ball has the number seven on it and she also wears a TaylorMade Tour Preferred glove as part of the deal. Speaking at the time she said;
“Right away the TP5x performed at a high level. I gained yardage off the tee, which is huge for me, while I still was able to have the right amount of spin and great feel around the greens. I also noticed that my iron shots were piercing through windy conditions and holding the line very well. It was really eye opening and I am beyond excited to put the TP5x in play this season.”
