Louis Oosthuizen What's In The Bag?

Louis Oosthuizen is one of South Africa's most successful golfers, winning on multiple Continents, most notably the 2010 Open Championship at St Andrews. Throughout his professional career, Oosthuizen has primarily used Ping clubs with the South African occasionally using the odd alternative. Here, we take a look at what is currently in his bag.

Driver

Over the last couple of years the South African seemed to be switching his driver a fair amount. At one point, he had the Ping G425 Max in his setup, and then next week, the Ping G400 went back in. What we can say though is that, at the most recent event he played in, Oosthuizen had a Ping G400 (opens in new tab) with a Project X HZRDUS Smoke Green 60 6.5 shaft.

Fairways

Once again, Oosthuizen has chopped and changed the clubs in this area a number of times. Over the last year or so, he has had a Ping G425 3-wood and 5-wood, which replaced his i25 and G410 models. However the South African had a TaylorMade SIM2 (opens in new tab) in the bag along with a Ping G model in the bag of late.

Irons

The irons are where we see Ping return to the bag for Oosthuizen, with the Ping Blueprint (opens in new tab) featuring in a four-iron down to pitching wedge. Again, depending on the course and conditions, the South African will bump up the set to include a three-iron.

Once again though, Oosthuizen has occasionally swapped out different makes of Ping irons. He was pictured at the start of the 2021/22 PGA Tour season with Ping i210's (opens in new tab), irons designed to offer forgiveness, especially at the upper end of the bag. One common theme, is that the irons are fitted with True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 shafts.

Wedges

Oosthuizen's wedge situation also changed. He had been using three Callaway Jaws MD5 (opens in new tab)'s, and then went through a phase of using Ping Glide 2.0 Stealth models. However right now it appears he has three Ping Glide 4.0 wedges with 50, 54 and 60 degrees of loft, although we believe he often puts a Callaway Mack Daddy PM Grind 60 degree model in the bag as well .

Putter

The club that has been in the South African's bag for the longest is the Ping PLD Voss Prototype, which, looking at the sweetspot, has been his choice of flatstick for a number of years. That being said he has been spotted with a newer Ping PLD Anser 2 model as well. 

Looking at the specs of his usual gamer, we believe it to be a Stability Shaft Tour, with a Ping PP58 midsize full cord grip.

Ball

The most popular golf ball on the Tour has been Oosthuizen's ball of choice for many, many years now. One of, if not, the best golf ball (opens in new tab) on the market, the Titleist Pro V1 (opens in new tab)provides superb all-round performance with impressive distance in the long game, excellent control into the greens and high levels of consistency throughout with a soft feel.

Apparel/Shoes

Izod/FootJoy

For a number of years Oosthuizen has used Izod apparel, an American brand that has been around since 1938. In the footwear department, the South African has been spotted using FootJoy shoes, wearing the Pro/SL's (opens in new tab). Oosthuizen also has his own clothing line called Louis57, which includes shirts, branded sunglasses, caps, belt buckles and even alcohol like wine, gin and brandy.
