Justin Thomas What's In The Bag?

Here we take a look at the equipment used by Justin Thomas. The American has used Titleist clubs his entire career and currently has a full bag of the company's products including ball.

Justin Thomas What's In The Bag?


Titleist TSR3

Interestingly his driver slot has changed a number of times over the past year. He had been using a TS3 driver, before switching to a TSi3 model. (opens in new tab) He then switched out to the TSi2 before going back to the TSi3 model so it will be fascinating to see which driver stays in the bag on a permanent basis. But at the moment he has now put a TSR3 driver in the bag which is the latest model. 

“The biggest difference is the spin,” Thomas said after his first-round 67 at the 2022 fedEx St Jude Championship. “When I heel it, it doesn’t spin crazy high and when I toe it, it’s somehow spinning a little more. It’s unbelievable in terms of misses.”

“I like it being a little bit open,” Thomas said. “I don’t like when I can’t see a lot of face because then I feel like I have to get it up in the air and then I start getting underneath it and that gets the two-way miss going. I feel like when I’m driving it my best, although I like to work it both ways, I feel like I aim at something and rip it and it goes pretty straight and falls right. Kind of letting the openness in the club let it fade a little bit.”

Thomas carries it with a Mitsubishi Diamana ZF 60 TX shaft at the moment.


Titleist TS3, Titleist 915Fd

Contrary to the driver, Thomas continues to use older fairway woods. The first of which is a Titleist TS3 model with 15 degrees of loft. The second is even older, a 915Fd with 19 degrees of loft. The TS3 was a particular favorite of ours because we found it be one of the fastest fairway woods on the market and consequently it gave us some of our longest carries, exceeding what we experienced with 917.

Shaft-wise, Thomas uses a Mitsubishi Tensei AV Raw Blue 85 TX shaft in his three-wood, but then uses a totally different company in his five-wood. He uses a Fujikura Motore Speeder VC 9.2 Tour Spec X shaft and given it is fitted into an older head, it seems like he well and truly trusts this club.


Titleist T100, Titleist 621.JT

Moving into the irons Thomas occasionally tests out a Titleist U500 utility iron but this comes in and out of the setup depending on the course, weather conditions and other factors. As far as the consistent iron setup goes, Thomas opts for a Titleist T100 (opens in new tab) four-iron before transitioning into a set of the Titleist 621.JT blades. They go from five-iron down to nine-iron. 

He turned up to the CJ Cup with the new irons. A Titleist spokesperson told the GolfWRX at the time; “Feedback from the best players in the world is a cornerstone of the Titleist R&D process, and these prototype irons have been developed in collaboration with each player to better understand some key design variables such as shaping, sole design and (center of gravity) placement – that ultimately may find their way into future Titleist iron development."

“Titleist was completely open to anything I wanted to change,” Thomas said to Golf.com. “We’re used to getting irons and there being minor adjustments for our game, but this was different. They were asking me about feel and sound. Things I eventually found out you needed to make material changes or other adjustments to get. It was a cool process to be a part of for sure.”

The irons are a one-off muscleback design that came about because the Titleist team tried to create a forgiving blade with higher launch. All of his irons are fitted with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts.


Titleist Vokey SM9

Thomas carries four wedges in 47, 52, 57 and 60.5. The first three are Titleist Vokey SM9' (opens in new tab)s but the lob wedge is a WedgeWorks design. According to Titleist’s Aaron Dill, that speaks to how quickly JT wears out the grooves in different clubs. Dill said Thomas wears out the grooves very quickly on sand and lob wedges so moved into the newer models sooner compared to his pitching and gap wedges. On his wedges he has the word 'Radar' stamped because he got the nickname back in junior golf for his ability to hit the target. Dill does the stamping in creative ways with different colors and styles. 


Scotty Cameron T-5 Prototype

Thomas' putter was a Scotty Cameron Newport 2 prototype that he hadn't had in the bag since his days at the University of Alabama. During the pro-am ahead of the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions, Golf.com revealed that the American was using his old putter, a Scotty Cameron Newport design, and he confirmed that it was being put in play over the four tournament days at Kapalua.

“I travel with this putter a bunch. I’ve brought it to tournaments with no intention of really using it, but it’s good for practice,” Thomas told Golf.com (opens in new tab).

This stayed in for a couple of events but he then went back to a Scotty Cameron T-5 Prototype which is more of a fang-shaped mallet design.


Titleist Pro V1x

Thomas, like many other professionals, uses the Pro V1x golf ball (opens in new tab) and has done for a good few years now. A ball that received five stars in our review, the Pro V1x is an excellent all-rounder, as you would expect. We were particularly impressed by the improved ball flight in the long game which didn’t come at the cost of any short game control or feel.


FootJoy Premiere Series Tarlow

Thomas wears the Tarlow shoes which are part of FootJoy's Premiere Series range. The Tarlow collection comes in two colors (also customizable) and is inspired by Bill and Dick Tarlow, who bought the FootJoy business in 1957 and focused the brand primarily on golf. It is FootJoy's modern interpretation of the timeless cap toe design, made with a natural grain leather. It is not just about looks though as the cleated sole gives ample grip in lots of conditions, the leather provides waterproofing, and comfort comes from the soft, supple sheepskin linings.
