Paul Casey What's In The Bag?

What clubs does Englishman Paul Casey use on Tour? Let's take a look. Casey's equipment situation is an interesting one as he was a Nike staffer when the company announced that they were to stop making golf clubs in August 2016. Since then he had a mix of golf clubs from a variety of brands in the bag and he also had a woods contract with TaylorMade for a while too. However this appeared to change at the start of 2021 after he put a couple of Titleist models in the bag. Let's get into his setup.

Paul Casey What's In The Bag?

Driver

Titleist TSi3

He starts with a TSi3 driver which has nine degrees of loft and a Mitsubishi Diamana shaft. After adding the driver in, he said; "I feel like I'm driving the golf ball like I did when I was playing my best golf, when I was 3 in the world or whatever, and that's -- I feel like its a rejuvenation." Clearly the driver performs well for Casey and it dud during our testing as well, receiving five stars. The compact look will suit the eye of the better player, but many more abilities have the potential to benefit from the more varied adjustability and extra forgiveness on offer. Our testing, after being custom fitted, showed it was longer and straighter than the TS equivalent, producing longer but more playable distance.

Fairway

Casey then had a Titleist TSi2 fairway wood in the bag, and it has 16.5 degrees of loft.  A club that nearly got five stars in our review; one of the first things we noticed with the TSi2 was the consistency of the flight. Inevitably with fairway woods, which are often the hardest clubs in the bag to hit well, the strike locations tend to be more inconsistent. And yet, with the TSi2, the resulting distances and flights were impressively predictable. 

Irons

Mizuno JPX 919 Hot Metal Pro, Mizuno MP-5

In 2021 Casey had interestingly been testing Honma prototypes but he quickly went back to his Mizuno irons which are two slightly older models. In the long irons, his three and four-iron, Casey uses the Mizuno JPX 919 Hot Metal Pro iron. Then from five-iron down to pitching wedge Casey uses a set of the Mizuno MP-5's. The MP-5's first came to our attention in 2015 and we enjoyed the feel and crisp sound at impact. The saying with Mizuno irons is 'nothing feels like a Mizuno', and clearly Casey agrees and shows no sign of changing. 

Wedges

Titleist Vokey SM7

He carries three Titleist Vokey wedges, two of which are SM7 models (opens in new tab) - the 52 and 56 degree options. His most lofted club is a 60 degree Titleist Vokey Prototype. It is interesting that Casey has not switched into newer models yet but given the performance of the SM7's, he may have no reason to change. The SM7's got five stars from us in our review back in 2018 because they performed as well as they look. 

Putter

Titleist Scotty Cameron GSS Prototype

Casey had been using a Scotty Cameron Special Select Fastback for a while but it appears he has gone back to his Scotty Cameron GSS blade putter. He has been using a Scotty Cameron putter for many years now and he has 'Lex' and 'Star' stamped on his putter to remind him of his children Lex and Astaria. 

Ball

Titleist Pro V1

His ball is the Titleist Pro V1 and he has used this for some time. 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.

Apparel/Shoes

Nike

Casey wears Nike apparel and golf shoes at the moment which is no surprise given he used to also play Nike golf clubs as well. Speaking specifically about his shoes, Casey wears the same model as Rory McIlroy, the Nike Air Zoom Victory Tour 2's. Available in lots of different colors; 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.
