Tiger Woods What's In The Bag?

Five-time winner of The Masters (opens in new tab), Tiger's playing resume requires little time here so lets get straight into his club setup. Woods doesn't change his equipment very often, especially when it comes to his irons and wedges, and therefore has a relatively consistent lineup of clubs.

Tiger Woods What's in the Bag?


TaylorMade Stealth Plus

The 15-time major winner did have a TaylorMade SIM driver in the bag but at the 2021 PNC Championship, he put in the new TaylorMade Stealth Plus driver (opens in new tab). It has a Mitsubishi Diamana D+ Limited 60 TX shaft and has 8.25 degrees of loft. The Stealth Plus is the model in the TaylorMade range designed for the fastest swingers and most consistent ball-strikers. 

In our review, in the same loft and shaft set up, the Stealth Plus was the lowest launching and spinning of the three heads. For us, it was also the longest, producing outstanding ball speed, carry and total distance performance. We also enjoyed the looks because the stealthy, matt black crown creates a classic compact shape down behind the ball, and you can barely see the red face at address.

At the moment Tiger's fairway wood setup appears to have changed considerably. He had put the new Stealth Plus in the bag as his three-wood however it now looks like he has gone back to his TaylorMade SIM Ti model. He was also carrying a SIM Ti five-wood but he has gone back to the M3 model instead. They have 13.5 and 19 degrees of loft and both are fitted with Mitsubishi Diamana D+ Limited shafts. The M3 is the club that occasionally comes out of the setup for a longer iron, for example he removed the club for a P770 two-iron during the 2022 PGA Championship.


TaylorMade P770, TaylorMade P7TW

TaylorMade P7TW irons

As we mentioned above, Woods has occasionally put a couple of longer irons in the bag. At the 2022 PGA Championship he put a P770 two and three-iron in the bag, replacing his M3 fairway wood, and his P7TW three-iron. 

Interestingly back in 2019, Tiger shifted from the TW Phase 1 bladed irons to the P7TW Prototypes. These go from four-iron down to the pitching wedge. In a Golf.com article about the irons it said; "Woods has the tungsten positioned in each club to produce a specific combination of flight, feel and control he’s come to rely on over the years. One interesting nugget is that the CG in Woods’ set actually progresses toeward in the short irons." The main difference between the P7TW's and the P730's is the milled grind sole and it was the first iron time the company has used the same CNC milling process on something other than a wedge. All of his irons are fitted with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts.

The 15-time Major winner is very particular about his wedges as most of his game is based around feel. As such he usually sticks with a model that works for him and right now he uses two TaylorMade Milled Grind 3 models which have 56 and 60 degrees of loft. He appears to be lacking a gap wedge but his sand wedge may be stronger than the 56° it says or his PW may be a touch weaker. The lack of gap wedge allows him more options at the top end of the bag, hence a set of irons from 2/3-PW.


Scotty Cameron GSS Newport 2

Tiger's putter situation, after having changed a few times over the years usually goes back to the same model - a Scotty Cameron GSS Newport 2. His previous Newport 2 GSS putter, which he won all but one of his 15 Majors with, is one of the world's most famous putters - an old backup he had made by Scotty Cameron in 2001 sold for $44,000 at auction.


Bridgestone Tour B X

Tiger had been using a Bridgestone Tour B XS prototype golf ball for many years but at the 2022 PNC Championship we believe he was using the Bridgestone B X model instead. Historically, Tiger has tended to play a softer golf ball that offers him more spin to shape the ball and give him some control around the greens. Since signing a golf ball deal with Bridgestone in late 2016, he's tended to use the softer three-piece balls in the range. Most recently, that has been in the shape of the Bridgestone Tour B XS which he has been using since it was launched by the brand in 2020. Now, however, it looks like Woods will use the firmer Bridgestone Tour B X model. 

According to Golf.com, Woods has been testing the Bridgestone B X on his home simulator and found an extra 10 yards of carry from using it which ultimately amounts to him being able to hit one less club into greens.


FootJoy Premiere Series Tarlow

Finally Tiger had been using Nike golf shoes for many, many years but he turned up to the 2022 Masters tournament wearing FootJoy golf shoes. The model? He was wearing black and white pairs of the FootJoy Premiere Series Packard shoes but he has now switched again to the Tarlow model in the range. It has the iconic cap-toe design and yet has modern flourishes like the sheepskin inside the shoe and the spiked outsole which offers excellent grip and stability. 

“I have very limited mobility now with the rods and plates and screws that are in my leg,” he said at the time. “I needed something different, something that allowed me to be more stable. That’s what I’ve gone to.”
