Cameron Champ What's In The Bag?

One of the big new stars to hit the golfing world, Cameron Champ has had a meteoric rise up the world golf rankings in recent times. Below we take a look at the clubs he puts into the bag each week.

Cameron Champ What's In The Bag?

Driver

Champ has switched his driver recently. He had been using the G410 LST (opens in new tab) and G425 LST models from Ping but has switched to the G425 Max (opens in new tab). His superior length off the tee sees him averaging well over 300 yards on the PGA Tour right now which is remarkably more than 20 yards down on what he did on the Web.com Tour a few years ago. The Max model is the slightly more forgiving design compared to the LST and it suits the broadest number of players

Fairway

The rest of the top of the bag has changed recently as well. He had been using a Ping G425 fairway wood as his three-wood but it appears to have come out for the older Ping G410 model. We believe it has 14.5 degrees of loft and a Project X Black shaft. Interestingly he also put a Ping Rapture hybrid in the bag briefly but this has now vanished from the bag.

Irons

Ping i525, Ping iBlade

Shifting to the irons, Champ plays two Ping i525 (opens in new tab)'s which act as his three and four-irons. A new iron for 2022, the i525 offers subtle improvements over i500, notably a more lively feel and greater margin for error on mishits as well as a slight increase in distance. The rest of his irons, from what we think is four-iron down to pitching wedge, are Ping iBlades. He had been using a set of Ping Blueprint irons but the iBlades, which came out in 2016, found their way back into the bag probably because they are more forgiving. The iron excels in all the areas of performance competent golfers prioritise – distance control, workability and a soft feel

Wedges

TaylorMade Hi-Toe Raw

Given his incredible length his wedges gain added importance and the American plays three TaylorMade MG Hi-Toe Raw wedges (opens in new tab) with 52°, 56° and 60 degrees of loft. The Hi-Toe Raw builds on the success of the original Hi-Toe wedge by adding an expanded toe area and adding grooves which now have score lines between them. Together, these things have really helped maximise the spin on offer and also makes it one of the most forgiving wedges we have tested.

Putter

Champ's final club in the bag is a Ping 2021 Fetch putter (opens in new tab) which replaced his Tyne and blade models he had in the bag for a while. The Fetch design caused quite the stir when it first came out because it gave golfers the ability to reach into the hole to scoop up the golf ball. The 2021 version was updated with an alignment aid on the top, softer feel, and an awesome looking black design. 

Ball

He also uses a Srixon Z-Star XV ball (opens in new tab) which is a ball used by Hideki Matsuyama as well. It is a four-piece design that now features a reformulated and more resilient inner core to improve ball speed and distance without compromising feel.
