Harry Higgs What's In The Bag?

American professional golfer Harry Higgs may be yet to win on the PGA Tour but he has quite the social media following and he is one of the most popular players out on Tour at the moment. But what does he put into his bag each week? Below we have taken a look.

Harry Higgs What's In The Bag?


TaylorMade SIM

Higgs is a TaylorMade staff player and plays a full bag of equipment. He starts with a TaylorMade SIM driver which has eight degrees of loft and a Project X HZRDUS Smoke Black RDX 60 TX shaft. This was a driver that found its way into the bags of Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and many other top professionals when it came out but it has since been replaced in most professional bags. Therefore it is interesting to see Higgs stick with this model especially when you consider that he had the Stealth Plus driver in the bag for a while.

Higgs also decides to carry a Stealth Plus fairway wood with 13.5 degrees of loft. You won’t find a bright red carbon face but you will find a striking club built around all the tour proven technology that has made TaylorMade one of the best fairway woods to own in golf. It looks fantastic and provided you get a good custom fitting, the club will give excellent performance as well. It is fitted with a Project X HZRDUS Black Smoke RDX 70 TX shaft.

Instead of a Stealth Plus hybrid, Higgs then opts for a regular Stealth Rescue design although he has also shown a liking for the older SIM2 Rescue as well. We believe his Stealth model has around 19 degrees of loft. It is fitted with a Project X HZRDUS Black Smoke RDX 105 6.5 X shaft.


TaylorMade P770

Higgs then uses a set of TaylorMade P770 irons which are quite rare to be used throughout the set. His set runs from four-iron down to pitching wedge whereas most players who use the P770 only seem to carry the model in the longer irons. Higgs has spoken about why he does this before and it's all about ensuring quality of strike. 

“I really don’t pay attention to what’s in other people’s bags to be quite honest with you, but there are [scratch players] that are so obsessed with having blade irons,” Higgs told the Fully Equipped podcast. “And they might be a great swinger of the club and skilled enough to use them, but if I’m over here using – I jokingly call them game improvement irons – why wouldn’t you? Usually that scratch player is like, ‘Oh I’ve hit blades forever.’ And it’s like a macho thing, right? ‘I’m the guy that hits blades at our club.’ It’s like, well, you might literally shoot lower scores if you don’t swing those irons. I’m pretty sure that the endgame of all this is to shoot the lowest score possible, right? So it may be, look, it might not work for everybody, but I think most people could…actually, if a PGA Tour pro is worried about his mishits and where they go, and how far they go, then everybody should be. So yes, it’s worth taking a look at maybe hitting something that’s a little bit easier to hit, and has a bit bigger sweetspot, and maybe is more forgiving. Because I can guarantee you we all hit bad shots, plenty throughout a day. Even days where we shoot six, seven, eight under, we’ve hit some bad shots.”

All of his irons are with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts.


TaylorMade Milled Grind 3

Shifting to the wedges Higgs carries three and they are all TaylorMade Milled Grind 3's. They have 52, 56 and 60 degrees of loft which is a fairly common setup out on Tour. A stunning look wedge, the kind of muscleback design suggests there isn't that much going on in the head but this would be false. Look closer and you’ll see the micro ribs in between the grooves after you’ve peeled the face-protecting sticker off, which then allows the face to rust over time.


TaylorMade Spider GT Rollback

His final club in the bag was a centre-shafted TaylorMade Spider Tour with a navy finish but he now decides to carry a TaylorMade Spider GT Rollback putter. In testing we realized it features the same Pure Roll face insert as the Spider X putter, but it does feel slightly firmer and sounds a pitch higher on impact. Interestingly though, the head is the same weight as the other Spider GT putters but does play a little lighter and that could be more beneficial for those who need more forgiveness or prefer a simple clean mallet putter.


TaylorMade TP5x

Higgs, like many other top players, uses the TaylorMade TP5x golf ball. It remains the firmer of the two models, and is faster, longer and higher-launching in the right hands. But a new, slightly softer, cast urethane cover helps it grip wedge grooves better for increased spin and a lower launch around the greens.
