Christiaan Bezuidenhout What's In The Bag?

A three-time winner on the European Tour, South African Christiaan Bezuidenhout (opens in new tab) has one of the most remarkable stories on Tour. After drinking rat poison in a freak accident at two years of age, he almost died. This caused him to have a stutter and a case of intense anxiety especially when it came to public speaking. At just 26 he has collected three wins on the European Tour. His first came at the 2019 Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucia Masters before he won twice in South Africa at the end of 2020. Those tournaments were the Alfred Dunhill Championship and the South African Open, and they took place in back-to-back weeks. What clubs does he put into the bag? We take a look below.

Driver

Bezuidenhout uses a full bag of Callaway equipment at the moment, starting with Callaway's Epic Speed Triple Diamond driver. According to Callaway the Triple Diamond design is inspired by Tour player feedback to create a neutral look at address, with a CG optimized for increased control and workability.

It also has the new Speed Frame designed by Artificial Intelligence which is available on all Epic Speed drivers. This technology is said to provide extra rigidity and when combined with a lighter triaxial carbon crown and enhanced face design unique to every loft, should increase ball speed and forgiveness. All of this being said he has occasionally been spotted testing the Rogue ST Triple Diamond driver as well.

He then uses a Callaway Epic Speed three-wood as well having briefly put the newer Rogue ST models into play. The Epic 21 woods feature Callaway’s new Jailbreak A.I. Velocity Blades which have produced even faster ball speeds across the whole face. Flash Face SS21 is also incorporated on these woods and keeps ball speed up even on off-centre hits. The Epic Speed fairway wood contains a much farther forward CG, aimed at golfers who want a strong ball flight, less spin and consistent shot shape dispersion. 

Irons

At the moment, after occasionally carrying a hybrid, he now has a Callaway Apex three-iron in the bag, before transitioning down into a set of Callaway Apex TCB's which go from four-iron down to pitching wedge. The Apex 21 design is the first forged iron with a Flash Face Cup designed with Artificial Intelligence for faster ball speeds. Second it has a new Tungsten Energy Core which is five times heavier than the tungsten weight in the Apex 19 irons to promote higher and more consistent launch and spin.

The TCB is another popular design out on Tour. An iron that moves towards the better player end of the spectrum, this cavity-back design has already been seen on Tour in a number of high-profile bags like Jon Rahm and Xander Schauffele.

Wedges

Bezuidenhout carries three wedges al of which are Callaway Mack Daddy Forged models - at 50˚, 55˚ & 60˚ degrees of loft. It appears he rarely changes his wedge setup and the loft makeup of his setup is one of the most popular out on Tour. He also has some very cool stampings of ribbons on the wedges as well.

Putter

His putter situation appears to have recently changed. He was using an Odyssey Works Big T #5 with a Two Thumb grip however of late this has come out for an Odyssey White Hot OG #7. This has a fang design and the White Hot OG range has proven to be very popular indeed on and off Tour.

Ball

Finally Simpson uses the Titleist Pro V1 golf ball (opens in new tab). A top performer out on Tour and in the amateur game, the ball offers superb, but distinct, all round performance. We were also seriously impressed with the strength and consistency of the flight, particularly in the wind.
