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 (opens in new tab) and the FedEx Cup.

Dustin Johnson What's In The Bag? 

Driver

TaylorMade Stealth Plus

Dustin Johnson has recently changed his driver. He had been using a TaylorMade SIM2 Max driver but this has since come out for a TaylorMade Stealth Plus model. What remains consistent is the loft which is 10.5 degrees, and the shaft which is a Fujikura Speeder 661 X prototype shaft. Speaking to GolfWRX he said; “The feel is great. It doesn’t feel like it’s – it still feels like it’s titanium. Feel is funny, because feel is all sound, so as long as the sound is good, it’s gonna feel right. They did a really good job with the sound, and I think it sounds really good. It sounds solid when you hit in the middle. Obviously, I can feel if I hit it off the heel or the toe, so I’m getting really good feedback from it, so I really like that. Then, like I said, the numbers have been really good, consistent, and that’s all I’m looking for.”

Fairways

Moving to the fairway woods, he uses a Stealth 3HL 3 wood. The two-time Major winner likes a weaker 3 wood due to the immense distances that he hits the ball. He also has a 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.

Irons

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 (opens in new tab) 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.

Wedges

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.

Putter

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 has now gone back to his trusty Spider IB Tour Limited Black putter. Additionally he has occasionally put blades in tournament play but much like the wedges above, he always seems to go back to the Black Spider above. Back in 2020 Johnson said'; “I like to try stuff. When we have new stuff and new putters, I like to try them. Sometimes it’s good to look at something different for a little bit, but generally, I go back to everything that was in my bag originally. But I’m still a golf nerd. I like all the new equipment. I like new putters, and I like trying them all.”

Ball

TaylorMade TP5x

His ball is a TaylorMade TP5x (opens in new tab). 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.

Apparel/Shoes

Johnson wears adidas apparel and golf shoes, and has done so for many, many years now. His golf shoes used to be Tour360's however it appears he now goes for the ZG21 golf shoes instead, which are all about lightness and comfort. We gave it five-stars because we couldn't really find anything to fault it on. It looks great and offers excellent all-round performance.
