Take a look inside the bag of American professional golfer Michael Thompson.

Michael Thompson What's In The Bag?

A two-time winner on the PGA Tour, Michael Thompson shot to prominence with a tied-2nd place at the 2012 US Open which included an opening round of 66 and a final-round 67 to finish one back of Webb Simpson.

Since then he has been consistently competing each year on the PGA Tour and has had the occasional visit to the Web.Com Tour Championship, (now the Korn Ferry Tour Championship).

So what clubs does the American put into his bag each week? Let's take a look.

Thompson is a Ping staff player and currently has a full bag of clubs made by the brand. At the top of his bag is a Ping G400 LST driver, a G400 three-wood, and also a G410 7-wood, all of which have Fujikura Ventus shafts.

Speaking of wedges, he carries three, all of which are Ping Glide 2.0 Stealths. They have 52, 56 and 60 degrees of loft.

His final Ping club in the bag is a Ping Anser 4 prototype putter. He also uses a Titleist Pro V1 golf ball. (opens in new tab)

Sam Tremlett
Senior Staff Writer

A golfer for most of his life, Sam is a Senior Staff Writer for Golf Monthly. 

Working with golf gear and equipment over the last five years, Sam has quickly built outstanding knowledge and expertise on golf products ranging from drivers, to balls, to shoes. 

He also loves to test golf apparel especially if it a piece that can be used just about anywhere!

As a result he has always been the one family and friends come to for buying advice and tips.

He is a graduate of Swansea University where he studied History and American Studies, and he has been a part of the Golf Monthly team since December 2017. He also previously worked for World Soccer and Rugby World magazines.

Sam now spends most of his time testing and looking after golf gear content for the website. He also oversees all Tour player content as well. 

Unfortunately, Sam is not a member of any club at the moment but regularly gets out on the golf course to keep up the facade of having a handicap of five.
