Thomas Pieters What's In The Bag?

A player who has won six times on the European Tour in countries like the Czech Republic, Denmark and the Netherlands, Thomas Pieters has struggled of late to replicate the form that saw him make the 2016 Ryder Cup team. At that event, Pieters, despite being a rookie, played some incredible golf collecting four points from five matches, forming a destructive partnership with Rory McIlroy. However he has shown he is more than capable of winning big events, winning the 2022 Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship. Below we have taken a look at the clubs he used to do so.

Driver

In the past Pieters had been a Callaway staff player however it appears most of those Callaway clubs have been replaced. Now it looks like he is a Titleist staff player but we are yet to confirm if this is an official partnership.

At the top of the bag Pieters is using a Titleist TSi2 driver with 10 degrees of loft. In a video on the Titleist UK & Ireland Facebook page, Pieters said; "This was the first driver that I put down on the ground and I said that looks nice. It really suits my eye, I am a really visual player so if I try a club, one or two shots and I will have enough feedback but this one when I put it down from the start it just matched straight away." He also acknowledged that his old driver produced a bit too much spin and Pieters, along with Titleist club makers, brought this down with the TSi2.

That being said he was spotted testing the newer TSR2 model at the 2022 Open Championship so it will be interesting to see which model he selects going forward.

Fairways

Pieters then uses a TaylorMade SIM Max three-wood and occasionally uses a TaylorMade SIM2 Max seven-wood as well but this comes in and out of his setup. 

Irons

Titleist 620CB, Titleist 620MB

In the irons Pieters carries a combo set at the moment. He uses a 620CB four-iron, before transitioning into a set 620MB's from five down to nine-iron. We have occasionally seen a T100 go in the bag as a three-iron but his more common setup is the one we listed above. The 620 CB has a thinner topline and tungsten weighting in the 3 and 4-iron only to aid forgiveness, while the 620 MB is a one-piece forged muscleback designed to give the ultimate feel and shot making and has a new brushed finish.

Wedges

Titleist Vokey SM9

Moving to the wedges he carries four Titleist Vokey SM9's, three of which are the normal version, and one is the prototype model. They have 46, 52, 56 and 60 degrees of loft. 

Putter

Scotty Cameron TourType SSS SB2

His putter has recently changed too. He was using an Odyssey mallet and blade but these appear to have been replaced by a Scotty Cameron TourType SSS SB-2. Interestingly it has a longer grip so it looks like Pieters has joined the armlock trend. The putter has a blade-like design but has a wider flange which we assume is to aid forgiveness and alignment. 

Ball

His ball is a Titleist Pro V1. One of the best golf balls money can buy, the Pro V1 got five stars in our review and it is easy to see why. It 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. It was also particularly impressive when playing in the wind.
