Nicolai Hojgaard What's In The Bag?

What clubs does the star of the future put into the bag each week on Tour? Lets dive in. Nicolai Hojgaard signed with TaylorMade around the time he and his brother Rasmus turned professional at the beginning of 2019 however at the start of 2023 he and his brother signed with Callaway and put a full set of clubs in the bag as a result.

Callaway Paradym Triple Diamond

Starting at the top of the bag Hojgaard has joined several other Callaway staff players by putting the Paradym Triple Diamond driver in the bag with 10.5 degrees of loft and a Mitsubishi Chemical Tensei White AV 70X shaft. 

It has a 450cc clubhead and, although it is the more compact version, it still has those traditional looks that we've gotten to know and love from the brand. Performance wise, you will see a noticeable climb in distance, with the Triple Diamond producing a lower spin rate that leads to more carry. It may not be the most forgiving but, out of the centre of the face, there aren't many models which are better.

Nicolai then uses two Callaway Paradym Triple Diamond fairway woods which we believe have 16.5 and 20 degrees of loft at the moment but we also believe he tinkers with the lofts every so often as well. His three wood has a Mitsubishi Chemical Tensei 1k Pro White 80-TX shaft whilst the higher lofted club has a Fujikura Ventus Red shaft.

Moving to the irons Hojgaard often carries a Callaway X21 Utility iron with around 20 degrees of loft, before transitioning down into a set of Callaway Apex MB's which have a rust finish. Interestingly his set goes from four-iron down to the rarely seen 10-iron, and they all have Project X LZ 7.0 shafts. He also occasionally carries a Callaway Apex TCB three-iron but this comes in and out.


Callaway Jaws Raw, Callaway Jaws Full Toe

His wedge setup is made up of two different Callaway wedges. He uses a Callaway Jaws Raw as his 50 degree option and his other two wedges have 56 and 60 degrees of loft, and they are both Callaway Jaws Full Toe's. All of his wedges are fitted with Project X LZ 6.5 shafts.

The Full Toe has grooves that extend all the way to the toe of the club to aid forgiveness around the greens and in bunkers, whilst it also rusts over time to aid spin and control. 


Odyssey Jailbird Versa

His putter is the slot in the bag that has changed rather a lot over the last couple of years. He was spotted using an Odyssey Stroke Lab Black Ten, a blade TaylorMade Soto, and a Scotty Cameron Fastback 1.5 Prototype for a while. He also used two different Odyssey Toulon Design putters for a while, the blade Chicago and the mallet Le Mans models. However right now he seems to have taken a leaf out of Rickie Fowler and Wyndham Clark's books as he now uses an Odyssey Jailbird Versa putter.


Callaway Chrome Soft X 2022

Finally he uses the 2022 version of the Callaway Chrome Soft X golf ball. When put up against the regular Chrome Soft, and Pro V1x, the Callaway X model was the fastest, offering a big jump in ball speed over its family model, and a slight jump on the Titleist design. We felt the slight tradeoff here is the firmer feel around the greens, but the X did still produce good short game spin and control. 



Adidas ZG23 Golf Shoe Review

Hojgaard wears adidas apparel and the ZG23 golf shoes which we think are one of the best golf shoes money can buy. We believe he used to use Tour360's however it appears he now goes for the ZG23 golf shoes instead, which are all about lightness and comfort. They also look great as well.
