Justin Thomas What's In The Bag?

American star Justin Thomas has been one of the world’s best players since bursting onto scene in 2017 with five PGA Tour wins as well as clinching the end of the year FedEx Cup. Since then he’s added two Majors to his resume while establishing himself as the heartbeat of the US Ryder Cup side. 2023 wasn’t a great year for JT and he will be looking to bounce back in 2024. Let's take a look at the clubs he will be using as he strives to get back on top.


Titleist TSR3

Titleist TSR3 Driver Review

JT’s driver has changed a number of times over the past year or two. He had been using a TS3 driver, before switching to a TSi3 model. He then switched out to the TSi2, went back to the TSi3 and now seems to have finally settled on the Titleist TSR3 driver which is the latest model from Titleist and in our opinion one of the best drivers around. 

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

The TSR3 driver really stood out for us during testing and was included in our Editor's Choice for 2023. While gains over the TSi3 were minimal on strikes out of the middle, we felt that the TSR3 did a great job of minimising drop offs in speed, making it one of the very best drivers for distance.


What Fairway Woods Does Justin Thomas Use?

Contrary to the driver, Thomas continues to use older fairway woods. The first of which is a Titleist TS3 3 wood with 15 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.

The second fairway in the American’s bag is even older, a 915Fd with 19 degrees of loft which originally hit the shelves back in 2014. 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

While Thomas occasionally carries a Titleist U500 utility iron, this comes in and out of the setup depending on the course, weather conditions and other factors. In his regular set up Thomas opts for a Titleist T100 four-iron before transitioning into a set of the Titleist 621.JT blades. They go from five-iron down to nine-iron. 

A Titleist spokesperson told the GolfWRX; “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 the best irons for JT, and the end result was a forgiving blade with higher launch. All of JT’s irons are fitted with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts.

Titleist Vokey SM10 Wedge Review

Thomas carries four wedges in 47.5, 52.5, 57 and 60.5. The first three are Titleist Vokey SM10's but the lob wedge is a WedgeWorks prototype 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 wedges 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. Vokey make some of the best golf wedges money can buy and the SM10’s are some of the best wedges for chipping based on our testing.


What Wedges Does Justin Thomas Use?

Thomas has changed things up from time to time with his putter. 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.

This stayed in for a couple of events but he then went back to a Phantom X 5 which is more of a fang-shaped mallet design and one of the best Scotty Cameron putters.

There may be further changes throughout this year as JT tries to find the best putter to get him back up there with the game’s elite players, so we will keep this section updated whenever we notice a change. 


Titleist Pro V1x

Thomas, like many other professionals, uses the Titleist Pro V1x golf ball 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. The ProV1 and ProV1x are the most popular balls on tour and are widely regarded as being among the best golf balls that money can buy. 


What Shoes Does Justin Thomas Wear?

Thomas is always one of the most well turned golfers on Tour and currently has an apparel deal with Greyson Clothiers. As for his golf shoes, Thomas wears the Footjoy 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.
