Dustin Johnson What's In The Bag?
What clubs does he put into the bag each week? Let's take a look. DJ has been a TaylorMade staffer for his entire career as a professional and extended his deal with the company to begin 2021 after a sensational 2020 where he won The Masters and the FedEx Cup.

TaylorMade Stealth Plus
Dustin Johnson has recently changed his driver. He had been using a TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus model but this has gone back to the TaylorMade Stealth Plus driver. What remains consistent is the loft which is 10.5 degrees, and the shaft which is a Fujikura Speeder 661 X prototype shaft.
We enjoyed the performance on offer from this driver in testing. We felt it was an excellent all round driver, ideal for anyone who wants a compact, but not intimidating, look at address and the ability to move weights to dial in a specific shot shape. We were also impressed by the added forgiveness on offer from this version of the driver.

TaylorMade Stealth 2, TaylorMade Stealth
Moving to the fairway woods, he uses a Stealth 2 three-wood. The two-time Major winner likes a weaker 3 wood due to the immense distances that he hits the ball. He also has an older Stealth 21 degree 7 wood, adding in a nice gap between his 3 wood and 3 iron. Additionally he has occasionally put a Stealth Rescue into play as well as a TaylorMade Stealth 9-wood with roughly 24 degrees of loft. With a 245-yard carry, the 9-wood wound up producing an almost identical distance to the 3-iron, which made for a seamless transition. However this part of the bag seems to change often so we update this section of this page regularly.

TaylorMade P730 DJ Proto
Moving to the irons, DJ has recently been spotted using the SIM DHY utility iron but clearly this comes in and out of the setup. The rest of his irons, from 3-iron to pitching wedge, are P730 DJ Proto irons. These are fitted with True Temper X100 shafts - a shaft he has used in his irons ever since his junior days. The DJ Protos were part of the custom series of irons made for a number of prominent TaylorMade staff players, including Rory McIlroy and (at the time) Justin Rose. They all featured slightly altered profiles of the TaylorMade P730 iron, featuring either a unique grind or blade length profile.
TaylorMade Milled Grind
Johnson then has two Milled Grind wedges with 52 and 60 degrees of loft. He has put the newer models in the bag on occasion, but he seems to always go back to the original Milled Grind models eventually. He also occasionally carries a TaylorMade Milled Grind Hi-Toe wedge with 64 degrees of loft but this comes in and out of his setup.
TaylorMade Spider GT
A difficult club for DJ in recent times has been his putter - he has been using a different model seemingly at every event! After using a TP Bandon 1 briefly he then put his trusty Spider IB Tour Limited Black putter into play.
However in 2023 he has now put a TaylorMade Spider GT putter into play.

His ball is a TaylorMade TP5x. We are unsure what number he has stamped on his ball but we do know the TP5x is a ball that recently received a five-star review from us because it does a good job of blending tour performance and feel in a low spinning golf ball.

In 2023 Dustin Johnson was seen wearing non-adidas golf shoes for the first time in his career following his split with the brand after 15 years. His new model is the Premiere Series Packard shoe from FootJoy. We loved these shoes in testing because of the premium looks and performance in terms of grip and stability.
