Ryan Palmer What's In The Bag?

An incredibly consistent player on the PGA Tour, Ryan Palmer flies under the radar at most golf tournaments and yet he has been a firm fixture of the world's top-100 golfers for a long time now. Let's take a look inside the bag of the four-time PGA Tour winner.

Ryan Palmer What's In The Bag?


TaylorMade Stealth Plus

At the moment Palmer has a bit of a mix-and-match golf club setup with several brands represented. Palmer has used TaylorMade drivers for a few years now moving from the M6, to the SIM, and now to the Stealth Plus.  He follows in the footsteps of players like tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Collin Morikawa, who have also put the driver in the bag. In our test of the club, it produced consistently impressive ball speeds and distance, whilst the compact aesthetics and black and red finish created a really premium and modern look.

As of yet he has not put the Stealth Plus fairways into play though. That's because he opts for older TaylorMade models, a M2HL three-wood, and a SIM Max five-wood. The fairway wood slots are the most difficult parts of the bag to get right so professionals using older models is more common than you would think. This is because when top players find a model they like and trust, they want to keep it in the bag for as long as possible. 


Srixon Z 585, Srixon Z 785

From there he plays a combo set of Srixon irons. His longest iron is a Srixon Z 585 four-iron and the rest of his set are Z 785's. The Z 585 model offers a little bit of everything for the golfer that wants to play a forged iron without necessarily sacrificing bags of distance and forgiveness. Whilst the Z 785 is more blade-like in design and offers more of a soft feel and a greater level of workability. 


Titleist Vokey SM8

Palmer then uses three Titleist Vokey SM8 wedges which is not surprising because they are extremely popular out on Tour. His lofts are 50, 56 and 60 degrees. A five-star wedge, the SM8 has a forgiving, stable clubhead along with high levels of consistent spin, and great feel. Not to mention the SM8 offers bags of versatility thanks to the 23 loft and bounce options that are available across the six different sole grinds.

Odyssey White Hot Rossie II

His final club in the bag is an Odyssey White Hot Rossie II putter finished in red. We believe he has used this design and shape for a few years now and has not really shown any desire to move on to anything else. 


Titleist Pro V1x

He also games a Titleist Pro V1x golf ball. It features the same reformulated 2.0 ZG Process Core and softer cover as the Pro V1 for enhanced distance plus improved feel and control. What separates the two is the Pro V1x is the lower spinning model which makes sense given the importance of distance out on Tour at the moment.
