Scottie Scheffler What's In The Bag?
Since turning professional in 2018, Scottie Scheffler has risen up the rankings incredibly quickly, to as high as world number one. He started off by securing PGA Tour Rookie of the Year honors in 2020, as well as a Ryder Cup spot at Whistling Straits in 2021.
In 2022 and 2023 he has won some of the biggest events in golf, including The Masters, The Players Championship, Waste Management Phoenix Open, Arnold Palmer Invitational and WGC-Dell Technologies Matchplay. As he continues to forge a career in the game, we take a look at what clubs he currently uses on the PGA Tour.

TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus
Scheffler was one of the few big players out on Tour who appeared to have no equipment contract but this changed in 2022 as he signed with TaylorMade. Speaking of the deal at the time, Scheffler said: “TaylorMade equipment has been integral in my career for many years, and I couldn’t be more excited to formally be a part of their roster of elite golfers”.
The two-time PGA Tour winner added: “I’ve worked with TaylorMade’s team on Tour for multiple seasons and their commitment to getting the right equipment in my bag was a driving force in joining Team TaylorMade.”
As such Scheffler quickly put the Stealth Plus driver into play but at the moment he has switched into the newer Stealth 2 Plus model with a Fujikura Ventus Black 7 X shaft. This newer design has a 2-gram lighter carbon face with an advanced ‘inverted cone technology’ that, the brand says, has helped designers improve the forgiveness on offer. In our testing we were impressed with this, and we also liked the slight aesthetic changes made to the head as well, with the matte-black crown getting replaced by a gloss-black finish.

TaylorMade Stealth 2
His Nike VR Pro three-wood was a fine example of a Tour player using an older model in the three-wood slot. Released in 2011, Scheffler actually used the three-wood for 10 years before disaster struck at the 2021 Sentry Tournament of Champions. Hitting balls on the range, his lucky three-wood cracked, causing his wife to dig out some clubs from their house and bring them to the range.
“I’ve used it the whole time I turned pro, most of my senior year, and pretty much all of high school. I only wasn’t using it for two or three years in there. I was able to flight it down pretty easily and it was softer than the new three-woods and for me that’s important. When I wanted to hit it far, I just teed it up a little higher and hit it higher on the face."
However he now uses a TaylorMade Stealth 2 fairway. It has around 16.5 degrees of loft and is fitted with a Fujikura Ventus Black 8 X shaft.
Srixon Z U85, TaylorMade P7TW
Once again we see variety in the bag, this time in Scheffler's iron layout. He is now using two Srixon Z U85's as his three and four-iron with the latter iron replacing his Srixon ZX7 model which had been in the bag for a while. The rest of his iron set is rounded out by the TaylorMade P7TW's (five-iron - pitching wedge), the irons that pay tribute to the collaboration of Tiger Woods and TaylorMade Golf. In fact Woods played a big part in Scheffler testing the irons in the first place.
“I would say the reason I tested it was definitely a Tiger influence,” Scheffler said. “I used the P730’s for a number of years, and I played with Tiger at the Masters in 2020, and I watched him it. He hits it so solid and he flights it so well and does all kinds of stuff with the ball. It kind of clicked in my head, I was like, ‘I used Nike clubs for so long when he was helping develop those irons.’ I’m like, why wouldn’t I at least test his new irons with TaylorMade because they’re his irons, and he obviously had some influence in the process of developing and producing the irons.
“I went home in the off-season, tested them out, and I saw that I was able to hit more shots with them. I was able to flatten out the flight a little bit more if I wanted to hit it low or hit it through the wind. And when I wanted to hit it higher, I could do that, as well. It gave me a little bit more variety in what I could do with the golf ball than the P730. And it’s not a big difference, it’s just when you put yourself in a 20mph wind in your face and want to flatten it out a little bit. I can flatten it out and have the ball be a little bit more stable with the head. It’s only a couple yards, but for me it felt like a huge difference.”
All of the TaylorMade irons are fitted with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts, a shaft model that is used a lot out on Tour.
Titleist Vokey SM8
Currently, the American has three wedges in his bag, two of them being Titleist Vokey SM8's, and the other being a WedgeWorks Prototype. All of them are fitted with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400 shafts. His current SM8's have 50 and 56 degrees of loft, whilst the Prototype has 60 degrees.

TaylorMade Spider Tour X SS Proto
The final club in Scheffler's bag was the Scotty Cameron Special Select Timeless Tourtype GSS Prototype but this changed in 2023 to a TaylorMade Spider Tour X SS Proto instead. This was a move from a blade to a mallet design.
“So the guys at TaylorMade have done a lot of work for me with the putter,” Scheffler explained to PGA Tour.com. “I've always liked the visual of that Spider putter, but I really just did not like the feel. That's something we discussed, kind of the feel and – I've always struggled with putters that have a lot of weight in the back side of it, and this one is a bit different than a lot of the Spiders that they've made, and the weight is more in the front so it has the feel of a blade putter that I like but it also has a lot of that visual on the top where it's easier for me to line up. It feels like at times this year I've hit a lot of good putts that have gone right up to the edge and not gone in.
“Maybe it could be my alignment. If your alignment is a half-inch off, the ball lips out instead of going in the middle or lips out instead of lips in. The margins in this game are so close, so it's something that I feel really comfortable with where the balance point is on this putter, and I'm excited to try it out this week.”
Scheffler put the club in the bag at the FedEx St. Jude Championship playoff event and it looks to be staying right now.
Titleist Pro V1
Scheffler has been using Titleist Pro V1's for a number of years. Regarded as arguably the best golf ball in the sport, they feature a softer cast urethane elastomer cover and faster low spin casing layer for consistent flight and spin.

Worn by some of the most recognisable athletes in the world, Scheffler has been involved with Nike since he was at University in Texas. After the brand stopped making clubs in 2016, it solely focused on clothing, with famous designs like the Nike Air Max recently transferring over to the golf course. We believe Scheffler currently wears a pair of the Nike Air Zoom TW Tiger Woods shoes.
