Danielle Kang What's In The Bag?

A six-time winner on the LPGA Tour, her first of which was the 2017 KPMG Women's PGA Championship, Danielle Kang has been a perennial winner on Tour and has played in two Solheim Cups in her career so far. What does she put into the bag though? Well we have taken a look below.

Danielle Kang What's In The Bag?

Driver

Titleist TSi3

Kang is a Titleist staff player and uses a full bag of clubs from the brand, and also uses a Titleist golf ball. She starts with a Titleist TSi3 driver (opens in new tab) that has 9 degrees of loft and a Mitsubishi Kuro Kage Black 5th Gen 55 R shaft. This model has been in the bag for a while now and she has shown no inclination to move away from it. This makes sense to us as we gave the driver five stars in our review because of the improvements in looks and feel over the previous TS generation. The adjustability is also particularly effective. 

Fairway

Kang then also has two TSi3 fairway woods (opens in new tab) as well, with 13.5 and 18 degrees of loft. We are not sure what shafts she uses in them but they are all fitted with Iomic grips. What is interesting is that most Tour players we have seen have decided to put the slightly more forgiving TSi2 (opens in new tab) model in the bag but given how personal and difficult the fairway wood slot in the bag is to get right, Kang must clearly like the performance provided by the compact-looking TSi3 model. 

Hybrid

Titleist 818H2

She also carries a slightly older Titleist 818H2 hybrid with 23 degrees of loft. The 818H2 is the same model Jordan Spieth (opens in new tab) still continues to carry. When they first came out in 2017, the 818H hybrids form Titleist proved very popular with the H2 model offering a more compact profile and squarer toe. It was designed for golfers who have a steeper delivery to the ball and prefer the look of an iron. 

Irons

Titleist 716 CB

Moving onto the irons she also uses a slightly older model here too, the 716 CB's. Because of how many woods and wedges she carries, the set only runs from five-iron down to nine-iron. The irons may look blade-like and very intimidating behind the ball but actually Titleist implemented tungsten in these irons to aid forgiveness. As a result they created a thoroughly traditional looking iron with genuine forgiveness.

Wedges

Titleist Vokey SM7

In the wedges she uses three Titleist Vokey SM7 (opens in new tab)'s which have 46, 50 and 54 degrees of loft. The final wedge she uses is a Vokey WedgeWorks Prototype with 58 degrees of loft.

Putter

Scotty Cameron Special Select Squareback 2 Tour Prototype

Her final club in the bag has recently changed. She had been using the Scotty Cameron TFB 1.5 Teryllium, a mid-mallet model. But now it appears she has gone to what looks to be a Scotty Cameron Special Select Squareback 2 Tour Prototype. It has a blade-like profile but the flange is slightly larger compared to traditional Newport designs. 

Ball

Titleist Pro V1x

Finally she uses a Titleist Pro V1x golf ball (opens in new tab) which is one of the most used golf balls out on Tour. It features the same reformulated 2.0 ZG Process Core and softer cover as the Pro V1 (opens in new tab) for enhanced distance plus improved feel and control. What separates the two is the Pro V1x is the lower spinning model which makes sense given the importance of distance out on Tour at the moment. 

Apparel/Shoes

adidas

Kang wears adidas apparel and shoes right now. Her specific model for the latter is the adidas Tour360 22 golf shoe (opens in new tab) which came out at the start of 2022. At the time she said; “The Tour360 22 is packed with so much innovation and technology that I could feel the difference the minute I put them on. What impressed me the most was how meticulous the team was throughout the design process, and I think the final product is a testament to adidas’ commitment to never stop striving for better. I’m really excited to perform in it this season.”
