Matthew Wolff What's In The Bag?
The man with the viral golf swing turned pro at the Travellers Championship after an immensely successful amateur career playing alongside Viktor Hovland at Oklahoma State University. It didn't take long for him to make a big impact as he won the inaugural 3M Open in just his fourth PGA Tour start. Below we take a look inside his bag. Coming out of university the situation regarding clubs and equipment contracts is usually a bit unknown however that was not the case for Wolff as he immediately signed with TaylorMade.
Matthew Wolff What's In The Bag?
TaylorMade Stealth Plus
At the top of the bag, as you would expect Wolff has been transitioning through TaylorMade drivers as they come out each year. As such he has used the M5, M6, SIM and SIM2 Max models over the years, but right now he has the TaylorMade Stealth Plus driver in the bag. This is a model Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy have all put it in the bag right away and Wolff has it with nine degrees of loft.

TaylorMade Stealth Plus
He has also decided to put the new Stealth Plus fairway wood in the bag as well. The new model is designed for Tour players and proficient ball-strikers because the overall footprint of the club is quite small, especially when compared with the regular Stealth model. There is no red face here unlike the driver but we thought the re-engineered 80g soleplate was a nice touch and improved turf interaction.

In the irons Wolff carries a full set of TaylorMade P7MC's which go from three-iron down to pitching wedge. They all are fitted with Project X 6.5 shafts. When we tested the P7MC alongside the other P-Seres irons, it was clear it didn’t quite have the firepower of the P770 but it did feel softer off the face, which the better player may well prefer. It was also very consistent and a little more workable, appealing to players that like to shape the ball. This explains why many professionals have put the P7MC's in the bag.

TaylorMade Milled Grind 3
He then carries three Milled Grind 3 wedges which are 50, 56 and 60 degrees of loft respectively and all of those come with Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts which are incredibly popular on Tour. A model that came so close to five stars in our review; the MG3 is a very high spinning wedge that delivers improvements in looks, feel and the consistency of the flight versus MG2.

TaylorMade Spider X Prototype
Finally he uses a TaylorMade Spider X prototype putter which usually has 'Wolffie' stamped on it. The design is very similar to the silver Spider X design but we believe it is a prototype because it has a slightly different neck design and weighting.
Wolff uses the TaylorMade TP5 golf ball which is the same model Collin Morikawa uses. A five-star model, we thought it was a virtually faultless ball in every area of performance, especially for those who play a lot of competitive golf. The feel leaves a lasting impression as well.

Nike Air Zoom Victory Tour 2
Wolff wears Nike apparel and the same Nike Victory Tour 2 shoes as Rory McIlroy. A very popular model, the premium leather gives a refined look with some cool modern touches like the stitching, Nike swoosh effect, and of course the Air Zoom unit. Speaking of Air Zoom, this technology makes these shoes incredibly comfortable because of the cushioning on offer, and Fitsole sock liner adds a plush, premium feel too.
