Russell Henley What's In The Bag?
Henley is a three-time winner on the PGA Tour. His first came in 2013 at the Sony Open in Hawaii after shooting three rounds of 63 during the week. Then a year later he managed to beat Russell Knox, Ryan Palmer and Rory McIlroy (opens in new tab) in a playoff to win the Honda Classic. He then had to wait over three years before getting back into the winner's circle at the 2017 Shell Houston Open. Since then he has been a regular feature of the world's top-100. But what clubs does he put into his bag? Below we have taken a look.
Russell Henley What's In The Bag?
Henley is a Titleist staff player and plays a full bag of clubs from the brand, starting with a Titleist TSi3 driver (opens in new tab) with 10 degrees of loft. We believe Henley was pretty quick to change into the newer TSi3 design and given the performane it produced in our testing, this came as no surprise. Titleist made significant improvements in many different areas to improve the appeal of the TSi3 driver to lots of different player types. 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.

He then has a Titleist TS3 three-wood (opens in new tab) which is lofted up to around 16.5 degrees. Interestingly he hasn't really shown a need to switch into the TSi3 model which just shows how well he gets on with the older model in terms of performance. We actually see this quite a lot in Tour players bags, once they find a fairway wood they like and trust, it takes a lot for them to change.

instead of a five-wood he carries a hybrid with 21 degrees. This has recently changed from an 818H2 model to a TSi2 hybrid (opens in new tab). Another Titleist club that tested very, very well for us, the TSi2 is inviting to look at at address whilst being easy to aim. It also provided a high launch with impressive off-centre forgiveness, consistency and distance on a neutral flight.

Moving to the irons Henley uses a set of the T100 (opens in new tab)'s and they are all fitted with Dynamic Gold X100 shafts. We believe they go from four-iron down to nine-iron because he likes to carry four wedges. Henley clearly gets on well with the older T100 irons as he has not switched to the newer model yet.

Titleist Vokey SM8
When it comes to wedges Henley uses four of them. They are all Titleist Vokey SM8 (opens in new tab)'s and have 48, 50, 54 and 58 degrees of loft. However they have the lofts cranked up or down to fill in proper wedge gaps. As such his proper lofts are 47, 51, 55 and 59 degrees of loft. All of his wedges are fitted with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400 shafts.

Scotty Cameron Special Select Timeless Tour Prototype
His final club in the bag was a Scotty Cameron Phantom X12 Prototype for a long time but right now he has put Scotty Cameron Special Select Timeless Tour Prototype blade model in there. To help him putt better and with confidence, Henley sets his phone up to send him a reminder every morning saying; "I'm a great putter."
Henley said back in 2021; “I turned it off for a few years because it was making me mad because I wasn’t putting well, but I put it back on recently. Maybe I need to keep it there.”
Titleist Pro V1x
He also uses the new version of the Titleist Pro V1x golf ball (opens in new tab) which builds on what was already a top-performing product in the 2019 version. For those golfers not fighting spin in the long game, this model provides excellent consistency and a ball flight that couples distance with control. It got five stars in our review and we also noticed it was particularly strong in the wind as well.
