Tiger Woods What's In The Bag?

Five-time winner of The Masters, 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, but has now found a relatively consistent setup as a TaylorMade staffer two years after Nike stopped making equipment.

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. It has a Mitsubishi Diamana 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 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.

Irons

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.

Wedges

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.

Putter

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.

Ball

Tiger uses a Bridgestone Tour B XS prototype golf ball after signing with the company in December 2016. Whilst we haven't been able to test out his prototype, we have reviewed the retail version of the ball and it performed well. It’s fast off the face and low spinning in the long game so you get excellent distance and accuracy with a fast swing. It’s soft, spinny and consistent in the short game and feels controlled with the putter. 

Shoes

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.
