Danny Willett What's In The Bag?

What clubs does the 2016 Masters champion Danny Willett use? We take a look below. He has been a Callaway staffer since 2011 and currently uses a full bag of clubs from the brand.

Danny Willett What's In The Bag?

Driver

Starting at the top of the bag, Willett was regularly switching between a Callaway Epic Max model, as well as his trusty Callaway Rogue driver but at the moment he has put a Callaway Rogue ST Max LS model in the bag. We are yet to confirm what loft he has it set at. Designed to offer low spin within a high MOI head for greater forgiveness, it features many of the same technologies as the Callaway Rogue ST Max. It has a classic shape which, combined with the modern matte black finish, creates a premium aesthetic that is among the best golf drivers of 2022. As far as actual performance goes, we think it is a very playable but also very long driver. It offers hugely impressive distance and comes in a shape that will attract those in search of a classic, compact look down behind the ball.

Fairway

In the three-wood we are yet to confirm the exact model and specifications at the moment as he seems to be chopping and changing a lot. He did have a Callaway Rogue model in the bag for a long time, and was also spotted testing and using a Callaway Epic Speed Tripe Diamond model as well. At the moment we believe the latter wood has stayed in the bag. 

Hybrid

Instead of another fairway wood, Willett then decides to put a hybrid in the bag and it is a model that we have seen growing more and more popular out on Tour at the moment, the Callaway Apex UW. Phil Mickelson was involved in its development and joined other Callaway staffers in calling for a “go to” club that better players can count on from the tee, fairway, or rough. 

Irons

Callaway X Forged UT, Callaway X Forged CB

Willett's iron setup has remained pretty consistent of late. He seems to always carry two Callaway X Forged UT irons with around 18 and 24 degrees of loft. He then uses a set of Callaway X Forged CB's and they go from five-iron down to nine-iron. All of his irons are fitted with True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 Superlite shafts.

Wedges

Callaway Jaws MD5

Willett's wedges are the Jaws MD5 model and he carries four of them with 46, 52, 56, 60 degrees of loft. The wedges are constructed from 8620 mild carbon steel and the Centre of Gravity (CG) of the wedges is precisely placed to create a soft, crisp feel. A big focus was also on the shape of the wedge, with Roger Cleveland using his 23 years of experience to create a profile that is appealing from all angles.

Putter

Odyssey Toulon Design Daytona

His final club in the bag has recently changed. He seems to moving between two Odyssey Toulon Design models at the moment, one of which is a blade prototype, and the other is a Daytona mallet design as you can see above. We will confirm which model he will go for on a long-term basis as soo as we 100% know. 

Ball

His ball is the 2022 version of Callaway Chrome Soft X LS golf ball. This is the golf ball that is, from what Callaway says, is designed for maximum distance in a fine-tuned lower spin profile. Our testing revealed interesting results.  The X LS version is designed to be higher launching than the Chrome Soft X and that was exactly what we discovered. The former was launching a fraction under 2˚ higher. However, it is also designed to be lower spinning but at our clubhead speed (around 112 mph), the spin profile between all three 2022 Callaway Chrome Soft balls was very similar. We should acknowledge that the ball speed was impressive as well as we saw a jump up when comparing it against the standard Chrome Soft. Then when hitting pitch and short game shots, we noticed a really good level of control along with a firmer feel which some players will like.
