Collin Morikawa What's In The Bag?

American star Collin Morikawa had a lightning fast start to his career with several outstanding results on the PGA Tour including five PGA Tour victories, two of which came in Major Championships - the 2020 PGA Championship, and 2021 Open Championship. 

He hasn’t quite been able to maintain that blistering form but remains one of the best players on the PGA Tour and an integral member of the last two US Ryder Cup teams. What clubs does he use at the moment? Let's take a look.

What Driver Does Collin Morikawa Use?

Morikawa used the TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus driver last year but seems to be unsure as to which of the new Qi10 models to replace it with. He initially had the Qi10 Max in the bag but more recently at the Farmer’s Insurance Open he had switched to the standard Qi10 driver

Then he switched again for his next tournament, the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am, when he gamed the Qi10 LS favoured by the likes of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy. We'll keep an eye on this throughout the season to see which model he eventually settles on.

Morikawa has the 8 degree head set to 9.5 degrees of loft. Shaft wise, in the woods, Morikawa is a big Mitsubishi guy as he uses the Diamana D+ Limited in all of his woods. In the driver he uses the 60TX model and in his two fairway woods he uses the 80TX design.

We tested all three Qi10 and we can see why Morikawa is spoiled for choice. The standard option was our favorite driver in the Qi10 family. We feel that it combines the best bits of both the Max and LS models to create an exceptional all round performer that makes it one of the best drivers for 2024. 


What Fairway Woods Does Collin Morikawa Use?

Morikawa carries a three-wood (14 degrees) and five-wood (18 degrees) at the moment. The former is a SIM Ti model whilst the latter is a TaylorMade Qi10 fairway wood. Both are in the discussion for the best TaylorMade fairway woods we’ve tried.

Having put the Qi10 to the test on the golf course this year, we were extremely impressed with the performance. It is a very consistent club that caters to less experienced players, thanks mostly to how the weight is distributed lower in the club head.

The standard Qi10 fairway wood is the middle option of the three in the range, offering a mid spin and launch profile as well as a fixed hosel, versus the lower spinning Qi10 Tour fairway wood which features both loft and sliding weight adjustability to really dial in the ball flight. For a more forgiving fairway wood we would suggest the Qi10 Max version.


What Irons Does Collin Morikawa Use?

Moving to the irons he starts with a TaylorMade P770 four-iron, and then from five-iron down to six-iron he has the latest version of the TaylorMade P7MC's. He then uses TaylorMade P7CM's from seven-iron to pitching wedge but he has been known to put more of these in the bag, replacing some of the P7MC's. He uses the P770 for his longest iron because it gives him more forgiveness which is incredible given how good his iron play is. In all of his irons he uses a very popular model out on Tour, the True Temper Dynamic Gold X100's.

Morikawa is one of the best iron players in the world so unsurprisingly these are irons for low handicap golfers and will not suit those looking for more forgiveness in their irons.


What Wedges Does Collin Morikawa Use?

Moving to the wedges, Morikawa carryies two TaylorMade Milled Grind 4 wedges with 50 and 56 degrees of loft, and then a TaylorMade MG4 TW 60 degree model which is the design built for Tiger Woods. Tiger is as meticulous as any golfer out there so as you might expect these are among the best golf wedges for spin control. 

TaylorMade make some of the best golf wedges money can buy, with the MG4 TW ranking as one of the best wedges for chipping based on our testing.

As with his irons, Morikawa also uses True Temper Dynamic Gold shafts in his wedges although he uses S400's, not the X100's here.


What Putter Does Collin Morikawa Use?

Morikawa started the 2024 season with the TaylorMade TP Soto in the bag with an LA Golf shaft but has since switched into the Logan Olsen blade prototype model ahead of the Players Championship. This is the same brand that Scottie Scheffler moved into at the start of 2024. Collin is "a tried and true blade guy" according to TaylorMade and while he has tinkered with the odd mallet here and there, you'll mostly find him using a blade putter with a single dot as his sightline.


What Golf Ball Does Collin Morikawa Use?

He also uses a TP5 golf ball. Interestingly though Morikawa used a TP5x when he first turned pro and he gravitated towards that because it was the lower spinning, firmer model however he found that it had a negative impact on his chipping because he felt like he was scooping the ball because he wasn't spinning the ball enough. As such he gave the TP5 ball a go and it has seemed to work. Hardly surprising as it is one of the best golf balls on the market.

Speaking to he said; “It took me a week or two to really get used to the feel of the TP5 ball. I had really never used that soft of a ball. It took me a little time, but I’ve gotten used to it now. It feels completely normal. My wedges spin great. It feels great off the putter. I like a soft feel off the putter anyways… it’s just been awesome around the greens, feel, everything; in the wind it’s amazing, too. It’s been a great ball and definitely a great switch. Easy transition to say the least.”


What Shoes Does Collin Morikawa wear?

Morikawa has an apparel deal with adidas and wears adidas ZG23 shoes which we found to be a supremely comfortable, stable, and lightweight shoe that will keep golfers of all swing speeds fully supported during the swing. While the looks aren't as sharp as some other adidas golf shoes, in our view this is pound-for-pound one of the best spiked golf shoes out there currently.
