Henrik Stenson What's In The Bag?

Henrik Stenson is a player who has won pretty much everything there is to win in golf. Major champion, FedEx Cup champion, Ryder Cup winner, and a lot more wins on the PGA and DP World Tours. But what clubs does he put in the bag currently? We take a look here. 

Henrik Stenson What's In The Bag?


Callaway Paradym

Stenson has been using Callaway clubs for a while now and this continues today as he uses a full bag of clubs from the brand at the moment. At the top of the bag he starts with a Callaway Paradym driver fitted with a Project X HZRDUS Yellow Hand Crafted 60 6.5 shaft. For the first time ever, Callaway has introduced a 360˚ carbon chassis and, in another first, the engineers have done away with any trace of titanium in the body, saving weight to use elsewhere for more forgiveness. Looks wise, we see a dark blue carbon effect, which is a clear shift from the previous Rogue ST but it is interesting to see Stenson put the regular Paradym in the bag and not the Triple Diamond model which is more popular in the professional world. 

Fairway Woods

Callaway Diablo Octane, Callaway X Hot

Stenson's fairway wood slot is arguably the most famous in his bag setup. His three-wood at the moment is a Callaway Diablo Octane model which dates back to roughly 2008, and he uses it with a Grafalloy blue shaft which dates back to 2003 or so. This had been part of his setup for many, many years but he shocked all when he replaced it with another model in 2019 but a couple of years later, it returned.  Stenson has said in the past that he has a box full of Grafalloy Blue shafts in his loft because they're no longer made, having been released in 2003. That way he can retire before even coming close to running out of shafts!

We believe he also carries a Callaway X Hot five-wood as well which is an older model and it also has a Grafalloy Blue shaft.


Callaway Legacy Black

Additionally, his irons have not changed for years as he continues to use some Callaway Legacy Black irons fitted with Nippon Pro Modus3 120X shafts and they go from three-iron to pitching wedge. The irons were a third-generation release in Callaway’s “Legacy” lineup in 2013, and they were only released to limited markets outside North America. Roger Cleveland helped design the irons, alongside Callaway Japan, and they looked to offer good looking irons for better players that also wanted a degree of forgiveness.

Speaking to PGA Tour.com in 2022 Stenson said; "I came off the U.S. Open in 2013, and I hit too many fliers at Merion. My caddie Gareth [Lord] at the time walks into Callaway and asks them to give us some options that don’t fly too much out of the rough, and the boys in Europe built up the Legacy Black. When the irons showed up, they felt great and looked good, and I didn’t hit too many fliers with them. They’ve been in the bag ever since."

Stenson then opts for two Callaway Jaws MD5 “Raw” wedges with 52 and 58 degrees of loft respectively. The Jaws MD5 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.


Odyssey 2-Ball Ten

Finally he uses an Odyssey 2-Ball Ten putter. In our testing we thoroughly enjoyed the performance on offer because it is surprisingly lightweight, easy to roll and forgiving across the face.

The 2-Ball Ten comes with Odyssey’s famous 2-Ball alignment to help you line the ball up correctly so the face comes in square at the point of impact. Being a mallet, it is also a very forgiving putter so this is ideal for the golfer who struggles with consistent strike. 


Titleist Pro V1

He also uses a Titleist Pro V1x ball which is one of the most popular models out on Tour. It features the same reformulated 2.0 ZG Process Core and softer cover as the Pro V1 for enhanced distance plus improved feel and control. What separates the two is the Pro V1x is the lower spinning model which makes sense given the importance of distance out on Tour at the moment. 


Ecco Biom H4

Stenson is also an Ecco ambassador and uses a pair of the Biom H4 golf shoes which are finished in his 'Iceman' colorway, but he does also use the more traditional finishes as well. We loved these shoes in testing because the leather upper has a premium feel and the Gore-Tex membrane is breathable and fully waterproof.
