We take a look at the equipment Lee Westwood currently uses
Lee Westwood What’s In the Bag?
The Englishman has been a Ping staffer for his entire career and currently has a full bag of the company’s products.
Interestingly, after a couple of weeks of switching between the Ping G410 and newer Ping G425 driver, it appears he has put the G425 into play full-time now.
He also carries a Ping G425 3 wood as well as a Ping G425 hybrid.
He occasionally carries around a driving iron which is a Ping G Crossover but this comes in and out of the setup regularly.
His irons are the Ping i210 model which he has from 4-iron through to the U-wedge.
Westwood carries a 60 degree Ping Glide Forged lob wedge as his only pure wedge.
When we caught up with Westwood he said of his wedged:
“I have a U-wedge that goes 121 yards and sand wedge that goes 106, and I carry the new Glide lob wedge 60 degrees
“I have used this particular lob wedge for a long time with this particular sole, gives me a lot of variation around the greens and its great out of bunkers as well.
“Very rarely do I hit my lob wedge full out, occasionally I do and it goes around 91-92 yards.
His putter is the new Ping Sigma 2 Fetch which has the added feature of getting the ball out of the hole for you.
When discussing moving into newer models or keeping older ones, Lee went on;
“It depends what it is, with having been with Ping for so many years, generally they bring along a club and it fits me immediately I don’t need to do much tinkering around.
I do change but I try not to change too often, I like the clubs to stay the same, and then I know if I’m hitting them bad, its me.”
