Erik Van Rooyen What's In The Bag?

South African star Erik Van Rooyen has risen up the world rankings throughout his career so far, regularly getting to play in the world's biggest events. He finally got into the PGA Tour winners' circle in 2021 as well with a victory at the Barracuda Championship. Here we have taken a look inside the bag of the South African golfer.

Erik Van Rooyen What's In The Bag?

Driver

Van Rooyen uses a full bag of Callaway clubs at the moment starting with a Callaway Rogue ST Max LS driver. Interestingly he uses the normal version and not the Triple Diamond model that many other Callaway staff players have put in the bag like Jon Rahm and Xander Schauffele. Van Rooyen's model has 10.5 degrees of loft and a Mitsubishi Diamana shaft. 

Fairways

He then also has a new Callaway Rogue ST LS fairway wood in the bag. We are yet to confirm what exact loft it has but if it is similar to his previous setup, then it will have around 16.5 degrees of loft. 

Irons

Callaway X Forged UT, Callaway Apex TCB, Callaway Apex MB

His next slot in the bag changes regularly between three different models. He has occasionally put a Mavrik Sub Zero 7-wood in the bag, a Callaway Apex hybrid, or a 21-degree Callaway X Forged UT iron. Obviously this is entirely dependent on factors like golf course, conditions and so on. At the moment he uses two Callaway X Forged UT irons, one with 18 degrees and the other 21 degrees of loft. Moving to the rest of his irons, Van Rooyen carries one Callaway Apex TCB as his four-iron, and from five-iron down to pitching wedge some Callaway Apex MB's. 

Wedges

Callaway Jaws MD5

He has three Callaway Jaws MD5 wedges in the bag which have 50, 54 and 58 degrees of loft. The three-wedge setup is probably the most common one we see out on Tour because it allows players like Van Rooyen to cover lots of different shots in the short-game, without compromising on slots at the top end of the bag, where the gapping can be more difficult to keep consistent. 

Putter

Odyssey Toulon San Diego

His final club in the bag is an Odyssey Toulon San Diego putter. it has a classic blade design and has deep diamond grooves that create a soft but crisp feel and a lovely roll while the stunning charcoal smoke finish is a feature of the Toulon family.

Ball

Titleist Pro V1

He uses a Titleist Pro V1 golf ball. One of the best golf balls money can buy, the Pro V1 got five stars in our review and it is easy to see why. It provides superb all-round performance with impressive distance in the long game, excellent control into the greens and high levels of consistency throughout with a soft feel. It was also particularly impressive when playing in the wind.
