Seamus Power What's In The Bag?

After playing golf at East Tennessee State University and competing on the then Tour, Seamus Power worked his way onto the PGA Tour and finally got into the winner's circle in 2021. His first victory came in a playoff at the Barbasol Championship in a playoff over JT Poston (opens in new tab). After Poston drove his ball into the water on the 6th extra hole, Power made a simple par to win $630,000. What clubs does he put into his bag each week out on Tour? Let's take a look.

Seamus Power What's In The Bag?


Ping G430 LST

Power is a Ping staff player and as a result plays a full bag of clubs from the brand. He starts with a Ping G430 LST driver after briefly having used the newer G425 model. It has nine degrees of loft and has an Accra Tour shaft. In fact all of his woods have Accra Tour shafts in them. The LST model is the lowest spinning driver in the range and provides another option for faster swingers or simply anyone who would benefit from knocking spin off their drives.

He then carries two Ping G430 Max fairway woods, one with 14.5 degrees of loft, and the other with 19. Like the G425 Max, the G430 features in 3-wood all the way to a 9-wood, meaning there are plenty of options across the board and, add in Ping's Facewrap Technology, which is designed to provide a stable connection between sole and crown, as well as allow for more consistent ball speeds and spin rates off the face regardless of strike location, and you have a club which will appeal to a broad range of players.

Overall, Ping has continued to impress us with its ability to create a fairway wood that continues to deliver exceptional forgiveness and ball speeds that creep up to match some of the longer fairway woods in the game.


Ping iBlade, Ping Blueprint

Moving to the irons Power did have a TaylorMade P790 UDI utility iron in the bag but this appears to have gone right now. As such his longest iron in the bag is a Ping iBlade four-iron. His iron set goes from four-iron down to pitching wedge and they are all Ping Blueprint's (opens in new tab) which are fitted with Project X 6.5 shafts. The Blueprint's are only for the finest ball-strikers because of the very short blade length, thin topline and narrow sole. In our testing though, once we found our rhythm, they were very enjoyable to hit because of the feel, ability to control the ball flight, and shape the ball.


Ping Glide 4.0

In terms of wedges, Power uses three Ping Glide 4.0's and they have 50, 54 and 58 degrees of loft. The three-wedge setup is very common out on Tour because wedges not only have to fill in distance gaps properly whether that be on full shots, or pitches, but also top players carry three wedges to give them some options and versatility when facing different shots in competition. 

The 4.0 is excellent wedge that delivers high levels of spin and looks inviting behind the ball. With four different sole designs available, golfers can also tailor their wedge set-up to their specific needs.


Ping PLD 3 Prototype

His final club in the bag is a Ping PLD 3 Prototype. It is a mallet design and he uses a claw grip with it as well. It is fitted with the iconic Ping PP58 grip as well.


Titleist Pro V1

Finally Power uses a Titleist Pro V1 golf ball (opens in new tab). One of the best golf balls money can buy, the Pro V1 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.
