Matt Fitzpatrick What's In The Bag?

Matt Fitzpatrick was a perennial winner on the DP World Tour before making the move to the PGA Tour and elevating himself into one of the world's best players. He has two wins across the pond including the 2022 US Open and he's a key member of the European Ryder Cup team.

The lad from Sheffield 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. As such there are a few brands represented in his setup. Let's take a look at what's in the bag of Matt Fitzpatrick.

Driver

What Driver does Matt Fitzpatrick use?

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. 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; “All of a 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.”

He carries the driver with a Mitsubishi Chemical Tensei AV Raw Orange 65 TX shaft.

While it has been replaced by newer models, the TSi3 is still one the best Titleist drivers, and is still a match for any of the best drivers out there currently.

Fairways

Moving to the fairway woods, Fitzpatrick has a mix of new and old. The new comes in the form of a Ping G430 Max three-wood that has 15 degrees of loft. This was a new addition at the start of the 2023 calendar year and it replaced the previous generation G425 Max model. This three-wood has a Mitsubishi Tensei AV Raw Blue 75 TX shaft.

In addition, he has an older Ping G410 seven-wood which has a 20.5 degree head that is lofted down to 19 degrees, making it more like a five-wood. This is fitted with a Graphite Design Tour AD DI 8 X (Black) shaft.

Irons

Despite being a free agent with the flexibility to use whatever clubs he likes, Fitzpatrick has been using Ping irons since turning professional and once again he is not afraid to use something that isn’t exactly hot off the shelves. ‘Fitz’ plays 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 best suited to more accomplished players looking for a compact set that also features more forgiveness than you might expect from the blade-like design. All of his irons are fitted with Ping CFS X (115G) shafts.

When we tested these irons (many moons ago!) they were a pleasure to use, very workable and easy to shape both ways. The look from all angles was very pleasing, and we were impressed with the finish.

Wedges

What Wedges does Matt Fitzpatrick use?

The Sheffield born major champion carries three wedges including two of the extremely popular Titleist Vokey SM9’s. He carries three Titleist Vokey wedges, two of which are SM9 models - the 52 and 56 degree options. His most lofted club is a 60 degree Titleist Vokey WedgeWorks Prototype. The SM9 is a case of evolution rather than revolution from the SM8 but Titleist says it has developed the groundbreaking Progressive Centre of Gravity (CG) design to improve distance and trajectory control. 

In testing, we found the SM9 very easy to square-up on full shots and deliver excellent consistency of spin and flight from closer to the green, making this not only one of the best wedges, but also one of the best wedges for chipping.

Putter

When he’s on his game Fitzpatrick is one of the best putters in the world. For a long time his putter was a Yes! Tracy II but at the end of 2020 he signed a putter contract with Bettinardi and now plays a DASS BB1 Fitz prototype made by them. The BB1 is one of the best Bettinardi putters and is a blade design suited to the more skilled player. 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 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

What Golf Ball does Matt Fitzpatrick use?

Fitzpatrick is one of many tour pros who uses the iconic Titleist Pro V1x, one of the best golf balls on the market.  This is a ball that received five stars in our review and it 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

What Shoes does Matt Fitzpatrick wear?

A lot has changed for Fitzpatrick in the apparel and shoe department recently. Having previously worn Under Armour, in 2022 he was then wearing Castore apparel but this appears to have changed again. At the Sentry Tournament of Champions he was wearing Greyson clothing but we are yet to confirm if this is an official partnership. Fitzpatrick then uses Skechers golf shoes. 

His model of choice was the Skechers Pro 5 Hyper shoe which is a technology packed spiked golf shoe that delivers on Skechers renowned comfort thanks to some excellent proprietary technology. Recently however, we have spotted him in the Skechers Go Golf Blade shoe, which must be one of the best Skechers golf shoes if they're being worn on tour.
