Phil Mickelson What’s In The Bag?
In this piece we take a look at what clubs the six-time Major winner and long time Callaway ambassador currently puts into play out on Tour. The legendary Californian has been a Callaway staffer since 2004 however after his controversial Saudi league comments, Callaway decided to pause their relationship. It appears he still uses several clubs from the brand though.
Phil Mickelson What’s In The Bag?
Callaway Rogue ST Max LS
Lefty had been using Callaway's Epic Speed driver with just 5.25 degrees to help him 'hit bombs'. However he has now switched to the Callaway Rogue ST Max (opens in new tab) LS which is fitted with 7.5 degrees of loft and a Fujikura Ventus Red 6X shaft. He had been using a 47.9 inch shaft to get as much distance as possible but we are yet to confirm if his new driver is this long.
Callaway Rogue ST Triple Diamond
His four-wood is a Callaway Rogue ST Triple Diamond model, replacing the Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero (opens in new tab) model he did have in there for a while. It has the same Fujikura Ventus Red shaft as his driver but it's weight is slightly different. Additionally Mickelson has shown a liking to the Mini One driver from TaylorMade as well but we believe this comes in and out of the setup.
Callaway Apex UW
Interestingly he has also been spotted with a Callaway Apex UW hybrid (opens in new tab) which has actually gone in the bag of a couple of other top professionals as well. Mickelson was involved in its development and joined other Callaway staffers in calling for a “go to” club that better players can count on from the tee, fairway, or rough.

Callaway Apex MB ‘21
His X-Forged Utility 2-iron also comes in and out of the bag depending on course conditions. Right now he has a pair of Callaway X21 UT Proto utility irons to replace his four and five irons, before transitioning down into a set of Apex MB '21 blades.
Callaway PM Grind ’19 “Raw”
Mickelson, one of the best short game players of all time, carries three Callaway wedges at the moment. He uses three PM Grind ’19 “Raw” wedges. The PM stands for Phil Mickelson because he helped design the wedges with Roger Cleveland.
Odyssey PM Blade
On the greens, Mickelson had been using an Odyssey Stroke Lab Black Ten putter as well as an Odyssey Versa #9 model. However the classic-styled Odyssey PM Blade is his current choice. He has that fitted with a SuperStroke grip but at the Sentry Tournament of Champions he was interestingly experimenting with an armlock version of the putter. We believe he has gone back to his regular putter grip right now though.
Callaway Chrome Soft X
Lefty currently uses Callaway's Chrome Soft X golf ball featuring Graphene - one of the strongest materials known to man. The 'X' model delivers lower spin and firmer feel than the regular Chrome Soft for faster swinging players. He is using Callaway's new Triple Track technology on his ball which is designed to help with alignment. It also has a cool logo on it which is his celebration from the 2004 Masters.
