Jason Day What's In The Bag?
What clubs does he put in the bag? Lets take a look. Day has played TaylorMade clubs since mid-2006 and in the past had the M3 and M6 in the bag. He also put the M6 and SIM Max in the bag however it appears he is another player to test the free agent club market as he now has an interesting mix of golf clubs and brands at the moment.

Ping G430 LST
Starting at the top of the bag, Day was using a Ping G425 LST driver for a while but at the moment he has a Ping G430 LST driver with 8.5 degrees of loft. The head itself is 440cc but, despite the more compact profile, Ping has done a good job of making this look inviting, not intimidating, at address. It has a similar profile to the TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus driver.
In testing, we saw an increase in ball speed and a reduction in spin. Certainly the ball speed of 167 mph was up there with the fastest we've tested of the 2023 range of drivers and, as a result of this, it delivered a strong flight and plenty of distance.
He uses a TPT Prototype shaft which has a low launch profile, which isn't surprising given how Day has been trying to bring his ball flight down.

TaylorMade SIM Max, TaylorMade Stealth
Next up Day carries a TaylorMade SIM Max three-wood. He also occasionally carries a TaylorMade Stealth five-wood but this comes in and out of the setup. “I use my 3-wood a fair bit during a round,” Day said. “I don’t view it as something that only gets used off the tee. I have some other options at the top of the bag, but I know what this club can do and don’t really see a need to change. Once I find a fairway wood I like, I tend to stick with it.” Both models usually have Mitsubishi Kuro Kage 80 X shafts.
TaylorMade P770, TaylorMade P7MC
At the moment his longest iron is the TaylorMade P770 and he carries two of them as his three and four-irons. He then uses a set of TaylorMade P7MC's and they go from five-iron down to pitching wedge. These were a move away from the TaylorMade P760's and Mizuno JPX 921 Tour irons he had in the bag. All of his irons have True Temper Dynamic Gold X7 shafts.

Titleist Vokey SM9
Day's wedge setup has recently changed as well. He was using some Artisan Prototypes but these have been replaced with Titleist Vokey SM9 wedges. They have 52, 56 degrees of loft whilst the 60 degree model is a Vokey WedgeWorks prototype. These wedges received five stars from us because of the combination of feel, spin, flight, control and the multitude of grind, loft and bounce options. There are several finishes to choose from as well.

TaylorMade Itsy Bitsy Spider Ghost
The Australian seems to be tinkering a lot with mallet putters over the last few years. He was regularly using a TaylorMade Spider Tour putter in both red and white, as well as an Odyssey 2-ball design and SIK Flo C-Series model. Additionally at the 2022 PGA Championship he appeared to be using three models - the TaylorMade Itsy Bitsy Spider Limited, Odyssey Toulon Daytona Prototype, Toulon Daytona Beach.
At the start of 2023 he was using a Scotty Cameron mallet design with a black head but during his win at the 2023 AT&T Byron Nelson he was using a TaylorMade Itsy Bitsy Spider Ghost putter.
Bridgestone Tour B X
He has also put a Bridgestone Tour B X ball in his setup too. In our testing, overall we felt this was an excellent premium offering that provides a firm, solid feel on all shots and spins really well around the greens while being long and consistent off the tee.
Nike Air Zoom Victory Tour 3
Day now wears the Nike Air Zoom victory Tour 3 shoes which are the next generation of Victory shoes. These shoes are also used by Rory McIlroy. They also feature the new Softspikes Tour Flex Pro cleats on the outsole.
