Justin Rose What's In The Bag?

What clubs does the Englishman put into the bag each week out on Tour? We take a look below. His club situation has changed a lot over the last couple of years. The Englishman signed a 10-club deal with Honma at the beginning of 2019 whilst World No.1, but the two parties stopped working together. Ever since Rose has been chopping and changing his club setup so let's get into specifics below.

Justin Rose What's In The Bag?

Driver

Titleist TSi4

At the top of his bag his driver has changed several times in a very short space of time. Just some of the models he has put in are the TaylorMade SIM2 driver, Titleist TSi3, Ping G425 Max as well as a TaylorMade M1 440 which is a model from 2017. At the tail-end of 2021 he was gaming a SIM2 Max model but in 2022 he started using the Titleist TSi4 which is the least-forgiving model in the TSi range. Very few players put this driver in the bag because it seems to be harder to hit than the TSi2 and TSi3 models. 

Fairways

TaylorMade Stealth, Cobra Radspeed Tour

Both of his fairway woods have changed too. TaylorMade's M4 and the Cobra King Speedzone Tour fairway have appeared in the bag on occasion but we believe right now Rose opts for two different models. He has a TaylorMade Stealth (opens in new tab) three-wood and then a Cobra Radspeed Tour five-wood as well. He does seem to carry a TaylorMade Stealth five-wood on occasion too so we will update this section once we have an idea on which club is going in permanently. Finally Rose has often put the Callaway UW hybrid (opens in new tab) in the bag as well but we think this comes in and out of the setup.

Irons

Srixon ZX, Titleist 620 Forged

Like most other parts of his bag, Rose has changed his irons a lot over the past couple of years or so. He had been using a set of Honma TR20 prototype blades, and then some TaylorMade P7MB (opens in new tab)s and P730s. In 2021 we also spotted him with TaylorMade Tour Preferred MB's, Mizuno MP-20's in Saudi Arabia, and at The Open Championship he was using some Mizuno Pro 221 (opens in new tab)'s. 

He then had a set of TaylorMade P7MC's in the bag for a while but he currently carries a Srixon ZX Utility as his four-iron, and then a set of Titleist 620MB's which go from five-iron down to nine-iron.

Wedges

Titleist Vokey Design SM9

Moving into the wedges, he currently uses several Titleist models. He usually carries four wedges at the moment and the first three are always Titleist Vokey SM9's with 48, 52 and 56 degrees of loft. He then often carries a 60 degree SM9 but has occasionally put a Titleist Vokey WedgeWorks Proto in the bag as well. It has 60 degrees and is a K grind whereas his SM9 is an M grind.

Putter

Axis1 Rose Proto

Finally Rose has had an Axis1 putter (opens in new tab) in the bag for a while now, which he uses to great effect. In our review, we thought whilst it does require a bit of practice to get used to the look and feel that’s created by the heel counterweight, once you do, it’s incredibly easy to keep the putter square throughout the stroke and at impact. The fanged shape extending back from the face is very popular these days and the central white line on the leading edge and two outer lines on the fangs frame the ball well at address.

Ball

TaylorMade TP5

His current ball is the TaylorMade TP5 (opens in new tab) and we think he has the number 99 stamped on them. The reason? Well Rose said in a TaylorMade video from 2018; “Kate’s [his wife] lucky number is nine and when I got married, I figured double the luck, 99.” He also has the number in gold to celebrate his gold medal at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. As far as why Rose uses the TP5, we believe he has used the ball for a while now and to our knowledge has not really had any reason to change.
