Matt Kuchar What’s In The Bag?

Kuchar's bag has always been an eclectic one to say the least, as he has often had lots of brands represented in his setup. For example right now he has these brands in his setup - Titleist, TaylorMade, Ping, Srixon, Cleveland, Bettinardi and Bridgestone. Not to mention he also wears Skechers shoes! Let's get to his specific setup below. 

Matt Kuchar What’s In The Bag?

Driver

Titleist TSR3

His driver used to be the Bridgestone Tour J815 but right now he has opted for a Titleist TSR3 driver with a Fujikura Ventus Blue shaft. The TSR3 features the classic-shaped head at address, with the main aim of the driver being to make it faster through the air. Titleist have done this by installing a smoother sole, smaller hosel opening and a taller back section, which is actually more noticeable on the TSR2. 

In testing, the numbers were extremely consistent, with the TSR3 minimizing drop offs in speed even from off-centre strikes. However, it's the playability that is the most impressive aspect, as it is the easiest driver to manipulate the flight of.

Kuchar then uses a TaylorMade Stealth Plus with 15 degrees of loft and he also uses a TaylorMade Stealth fairway wood with 18 degrees. Both of these models are fitted with Fujikura Speeder Evolution 757 shafts. 

Hybrid

Ping Anser

Kuchar appears to have moved away from the multiple hybrid setup of late. He used to carry a few hybrids instead of long irons but at the moment it looks like only has the Ping Anser 20-degree model in the bag. Given how long he has had it in the bag, and the wear marks on the club, this is clearly a favorite of Kuchar's. 

Irons

Srixon ZX7 Mk II

Kuchar then used to use Bridgestone irons but these have been replaced by a set of Srixon ZX7 Mk II's. We thoroughly enjoyed testing these irons so more Tour players using them comes as no surprise. 

Visually, it is an excellent looking club that, at address, is both compact and inviting and looks noticeably larger than some of the best blade irons on the market but will still appeal to mid-handicappers and better players. The feel is lively in comparison to a blade and the sound is also excellent.

Wedges

He then has a set of three wedges, all of which are Cleveland RTX ZipCore Raw models with around 52, 57 and 63 degrees of loft. The numbers on the sole of the clubs is slightly different to the actual lofts which suggests they have been bent slightly to make sure they deliver the exact gapping yardages Kuchar is looking for.

Putter

Bettinardi Tour Department SS28 DASS

The 42-year-old was one of the first high profile players to putt with a longer putter and almost lock it in along his left arm. This continues at the moment and he uses a Bettinardi Tour Department SS28 DASS putter, which is a kind of wider blade design.

Ball

Finally ball of choice is the Bridgestone Tour B X which makes sense given he has used balls from the brand for many years. Kuchar also wears Skechers shoes.
