Patrick Reed What's In The Bag?
Patrick Reed switched his equipment a lot over the past couple of years. Reed has been in an equipment limbo for a while now having tinkered with PXG, Bettinardi, Titleist, Callaway and Cleveland gear, as well as Bridgestone and Srixon balls. He has also used apparel and shoes from brands like FootJoy, Castore, Nike and G/FORE. Below we have taken a look inside his bag, one of the most interesting out on Tour.
Patrick Reed What's In The Bag?
Patrick Reed has never been one to shy away from trying out new drivers. In recent years, he has used models from the likes of Ping, Callaway, TaylorMade and Titleist and in 2022, we added two further brands to that growing list.
The American announced he had signed with PXG at the Sentry Tournament of Champions in January 2022 and he subsequently put a Gen4 0811 X driver in the bag. The former Masters champion has since split with PXG and has recently been pictured using a model from Japanese club makers, Grindworks.
TaylorMade SIM, Callaway Rogue ST
His fairway woods are also an ever-changing story too. He had been using the Nike VR Pro Limited for a long time before putting the Titleist TS2 in. The TaylorMade M6 made a brief appearance in his setup as did a Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero. Currently he has a TaylorMade SIM (opens in new tab) in there along with a Callaway Rogue ST model as well.
Callaway Apex Pro, Grindworks PR-101A
Reed then had a T100 three iron in the bag for a while but we think this has come out for now. We believe the four-iron is a Callaway Apex Pro iron, whereas the rest of the irons, from five-iron down to pitching wedge, are Grindworks PR-101A's. Reed made the switch at the tail-end of 2019 and clearly gets on well with the irons as they have remained in the bag since.
“The awesome thing about it is that it clarifies my swing a little better, so when I feel like I make a good golf swing, the ball does what it’s supposed to do,” Reed told PGATour.com. At the time Reed couldn't say who made the irons but the PGA Tour discovered that the company behind them is called Grindworks, and it is headed up by Japanese forging experts Kiyonari Niimi and Kenji Kobiyashi.
Grindworks Barrett, Titleist Vokey SM8
Reed has three wedges in the bag but clearly takes a few more models with him as he travels. At the moment has three Grindworks Barrett wedges in the bag with 51, 57 and 61 degrees of loft but he also carries with him a Titleist Vokey SM9 and a Titleist Vokey SM8 (opens in new tab). Both of the Titleist models are 61 degrees.
Odyssey White Hot Pro 3
Finally his putter is an Odyssey White Hot Pro 3, moving away from the Scotty Cameron prototype he had in for a while. Reed has been pretty consistent in terms of putter shape over the last few years, deciding to stick with a blade rather than go for a mallet or mid-mallet.
Titleist Pro V1
We believe Reed has also switched golf ball in the past year from a Srixon Z-Star XV, to a Titleist Pro V1 (opens in new tab). One of the best golf balls (opens in new tab) money can buy, the Pro V1 got five stars in our review and it is easy to see why. It provides superb all-round performance with impressive distance in the long game, excellent control into the greens and high levels of consistency throughout with a soft feel. It was also particularly impressive when playing in the wind.

FootJoy Premiere Series Tarlow
Reed also uses a pair of the Premiere Tarlow shoes from FootJoy. The Tarlow collection comes in two colours (also customisable) and is inspired by Bill and Dick Tarlow, who bought the FootJoy business in 1957 and focused the brand primarily on golf. It is FootJoy's modern interpretation of the timeless cap toe design, made with a natural grain leather.
