Matt Fitzpatrick What's In The Bag?

Matt Fitzpatrick has been a perennial winner on the DP World Tour over the last few years and got his 1st win on the PGA Tour at the 2022 US Open as well. But what does he actually put into his bag? He is a relatively unique player these days in the sense that he has no large equipment contract so has the freedom to pick and choose whatever equipment he likes.

Matt Fitzpatrick What's In The Bag?

Driver

Titleist TSi3

His driver situation changed in 2021 as he got rid of the TaylorMade M2 which had been part of his setup for many years, replacing it with a Titleist TSi3 model (opens in new tab). He also made some subtle swing changes which, along with newer equipment, has allowed him to gain more distance. For example he has a slightly wider stance which allows him use the ground more, and he has started flaring his front foot so it’s pointing more towards his target (which in turn allows him to release his hips more on the downswing)

Fitzpatrick said to Golf.com (opens in new tab); “All of the sudden I can drive it up by the green and that makes a difference. I can hit a normal one and it’s going to make it easier for myself or my partner,” he said. “In the past, holes like that, it’s like I’m hitting a great drive and it’s 30, 40 yards short rather than up by the green.”

Fairways

Ping G425 Max, Ping G410

Moving to the fairway woods, Fitzpatrick uses a Ping G425 Max (opens in new tab) three-wood as well as a Ping G410 seven-wood. They have 15 and 20.5 degrees of loft respectively but we think the latter fairway wood is lofted down to 19 degrees, making it more of a five-wood. 

Irons

Fitzpatrick has been using Ping irons since turning professional and this continues today with a set of Ping S55 irons from five-iron down to pitching wedge. His four-iron has recently changed though from a Titleist T100 to a Ping i210 model. 

The S55's have been out since 2015 and despite briefly testing a set of the Ping Blueprint's Fitzpatrick has shown no desire to switch. They are an iron designed for accomplished players looking for a compact set that also features more forgiveness than you might expect from the blade-like design.

Wedges

At the moment he has Titleist Vokey SM9 wedges in the bag. They have 52, 56 and 60 degrees of loft whilst he has also occasionally carried a WedgeWorks 60 degree model as well. 

Putter

Bettinardi DASS BB1 Flow Tour Dept

For a long time his putter was a Yes! Tracy II however he has recently signed a putter contract with Bettinardi so he plays a DASS BB1 Flow Tour Dept prototype made by them. What is interesting is the Bettinardi is pretty much a carbon copy of the Yes! model, aside from the Sheffield United stamping and branding touches. GolfWRX spoke (opens in new tab) to Sam Bettinardi, EVP of Bettinardi Golf, in 2020 to see what he said about the putter;

“When we work with PGA Tour players, who are the most discriminate minds in the game of golf, they have extremely specific requests. Due to our ability to craft everything in house with exacting tolerances/specifications, we honored Matt Fitzpatrick’s request by duplicating his current gamer.”

“Matt was struggling to find backups for his putter he has been using since high school because his old company is not in business anymore. He wanted to work with us, because he knew we could make this request happen. To have a player like Matt, 24th in the world and a very solid putter overall, feel comfortable to switch from a putter he’s used since he’s been 16, is a testament to our craft and we feel privileged to have his trust to get it done.”

Ball

Titleist Pro V1x

He is a Titleist Pro V1x (opens in new tab) ball loyalist and has had the ball in play for 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.

Apparel/Shoes

Castore/Skechers

A lot has changed for Fitzpatrick in the apparel and shoe department recently. He had been signed to Under Armour but right now he is wearing Skechers golf shoes and Castore apparel.
