Justin Rose What's In The Bag?

Justin Rose signed a 10-club deal with Honma at the beginning of 2019 whilst World No.1, but the partnership came to an end the following year. Of course, going back further, we’d become used to seeing the Englishman play TaylorMade, a brand he enjoyed working with for many years.

These days, Rose is a free agent, happy to have a nose around in other players’ bags and see what’s what. That’s how he came to play a set of Cobra irons – he liked what he saw (more on those below). Here, we take a look at his full line-up of clubs. As the man himself says, things might change over the course of the season, although this is how his bag looked at the start of 2024.


What Driver Does Justin Rose Use?

Rose returned to the brand he grew up playing, putting the TaylorMade M3 in the bag at one stage. He’s also experimented with the TaylorMade SIM2, Titleist TSi3 and Ping G425 Max. However, he appears to have settled – for now at least – on the Titleist TSR3 driver, which has 9° of loft and is fitted with a Project X HZRDUS Black 60 TX shaft.

The TSR3 is a premium model and made our editor’s choice list in 2023; it’s a sleek-looking and performing driver, with plenty of adjustability to dial in your shot shape.

Fairway Woods

Rose knows TaylorMade well, having been an ambassador for the brand for so many years, so it’s no great surprise to see him with a couple of the company’s fairways in his bag. The former US Open champion has two TaylorMade M6 fairways: a 15° three wood and an 18° five wood, both of which have the Project X HZRDUS Smoke Black RDX 80 TX shaft.

We were a big fan of this club when we first got our hands on it in way back in 2019. The fact that Rose is willing to go back an iteration or two shows that he knows what he likes. This is a club that’s easy to align, fast and forgiving off the face and versatile from different lies.


What Irons Does Justin Rose Use?

No one can accuse Rose of not doing his homework and assessing what he feels are the best golf irons on the market – or for him. Staying at the top end of his bag, he carries a Ping iCrossover utility iron (two iron), a club that provides hybrid forgiveness with proper iron playability. It’s a sleek-looking model, and one that we had to add to our best utility irons golf clubs 2024. In terms of shaft, it has the Fujikura Ventus HB Black 9 TX.

Staying at the top end of the bag, a couple of other clubs that he has been seen hitting suggest that Rose must swap certain ones out at times, otherwise he'd get penalized a fair few shots! He also has a Srixon ZX Mk II and a Cobra King Forged Tec (4), the former of which has a Nippon N.S. Pro G.H.O.S.T shaft. 

Like most other parts of his bag, Rose has changed his irons a lot over the past couple of years. He has played blade models from TaylorMade, Mizuno and Honma in fairly recent times, and he looked to be settled on a set of Titleist 620 MBs. 

However, at the start of 2024, Rose was playing a combo set of Cobra irons - Cobra King CBs (4-6) and Cobra King MBs (7-9). The 4-9 irons are fitted with the KBS Tour 125 S+ shaft. 


What Wedges Does Justin Rose Use?

Judging by his bag at the start of the year, Rose appears to have five different wedges; clearly he doesn't put all five in the bag for a tournament, most likely three from the following: Titleist Vokey SM9, 48°, 52°, 56°. 

He also has a Cleveland RTX ZipCore Tour Rack, 60° and WedgeWorks, 60°. The 48° Vokey has a KBS Tour 125 S+ shaft, and we believe that the others are fitted with a KBS Hi-Rev 135 X shaft. 


What Putter Does Justin Rose Use?

Rose has had an Axis1 Rose putter in the bag for some time. In our review, we thought that 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. The fanged shape extending back from the face has become popular on Tour and the central white line on the leading edge and two outer lines on the fangs frame the ball well at address.

Rose would appear to be experimenting with a couple of different Lamkin grips - a Lamkin PistolClaw and Lamkin JR Rel. Lamkin is one of his sponsors, and you can find  a number of the brand's products on our list of best golf grips 2024


What Ball Does Justin Rose Use?

Having used the TaylorMade TP5 for many years, Rose switched to the Titleist Pro V1 Left Dot, which Titleist says is "designed for players seeking a more penetrating trajectory with lower long-game spin than Pro V1 but with comparable greenside control and soft feel."

We believe he has the number 99 stamped on them. The Englishman said in a video from 2018, “Kate’s [his wife] lucky number is nine and when I got married, I figured double the luck, 99.”


What Shoes Does Justin Rose Wear?

At the start of the year in Hawaii, Rose was wearing Nike Air Jordan Low 1 G shoes, a stand-out casual spikeless golf shoe that any sneaker fan should have in their locker. The grip and comfort surprised us out of the box and, while it won't win any competitions for support, this is an ideal golf shoe for a casual round.

Clothing-wise, we don't believe Rose has put pen to paper to make any apparel partnership official, but he does wear Peter Millar, a luxurious brand that crafts some of the best golf polo shirts and other outerwear items on the market.
