Xander Schauffele What's In The Bag?
What does the young American put into his bag out on Tour? Well right now he has nearly a full set of Callaway clubs in there alongside a couple of Titleist wedges.
Xander Schauffele What's In The Bag?
Callaway Rogue ST Triple Diamond S
At the top of the bag Schauffele had been using Callaway's Epic Speed Triple Diamond driver but at the 2022 Sentry Tournament of Champions he put the new Rogue ST (opens in new tab) Triple Diamond S in the bag. It is also fitted with a brand new Mitsubishi Kai’li White 70 shaft. Speaking to PGA Tour.com, Xander said of the new driver; “I hit my little draw and I hit my little fade and I looked at the fitter and said, ‘This one will do.’”
“If I hit three drives and two of them are good and I kind of make one weird swing, I know the driver's good. All the guys at Callaway know I'll hit one drive and if I hit it kind of squirrely, they take it out of my hands because I won't even go beyond one or two shots with it because they know I'll start compensating.”
Callaway Epic Speed Triple Diamond, Callaway Apex UW
Schauffele had been using two Mavrik Sub Zero models from Callaway but it appears an Epic Speed Triple Diamond three-wood has gone in alongside an Apex UW seven-wood. He occasionally puts a five-wood in the bag to replace the seven, but this will depend on conditions and the course. In terms of his regular setup the three-wood is the only one of the two that always stays in.

Callaway Apex TCB
His irons have recently changed from a set of Callaway Apex Pro prototypes, to a set of Apex TCB (opens in new tab) prototypes. They go from four iron down to pitching wedge and have Nippon shafts. The TCB's have proven to be extremely popular on Tour with world number one Jon Rahm also putting them in the bag. When we tested the iron we thought the Apex TCB is an excellent all-round offering for the better player looking to shape shots and attack pins while have a degree of margin for error too.

Callaway Jaws Raw, Titleist Vokey SM6, Titleist Vokey SM9 WedgeWorks
He has a Callaway Jaws Raw gap wedge with 52° and then his accompanying sand wedge and lob wedge (56° and 60°) are a Titleist Vokey SM6 and Titleist Vokey SM9 WedgeWorks.

Odyssey O-Works #7 CH Red
His putter of choice has changed a couple of times in the last year or so. At one point he had the Odyssey Stroke Lab Tuttle in there, an Odyssey Toulon Design prototype and also a Stroke Lab 7 too. Since the Memorial at the start of June, Xander had opted for an armlock putter, despite being very vocal about that style of putter being banned. (opens in new tab)He used the armlock variation of the O-Works Red #7 CH for a while but eventually went back to the regular version.
“The hosel is interesting,” he said to Golf Digest. “It creates a little bit of toe hang whereas many mallets are face-balanced. It helps it swing the head a little easier. I’ve always wanted to be a blade guy but never really got into it. This putter is an old friend of mine that I got away from for a little bit but I’m glad it’s back on this journey with me. It almost swings itself and those two long white parallel lines in back kind of let you know when you’re not doing the right thing with your stroke and when you are.”
Callaway Chrome Soft X
Finally his ball is the Callaway Chrome Soft X. It comes as no surprise to us that top professionals like Schauffele, Jon Rahm and Sam Burns use the Callaway Chrome Soft X golf ball. One of the big reasons here is the distance on offer because the X is one of the fastest balls we've tested.
When put up against the regular Chrome Soft, and Pro V1x, the Callaway X model was the fastest, offering a big jump in ball speed over its family model, and a slight jump on the Titleist design. We felt the slight tradeoff here is the firmer feel around the greens, but the X did still produce good short game spin and control.

Finally Xander wears adidas apparel and shoes. He was wearing the adidas ZG21 golf shoes (opens in new tab) but this changed in 2022 as he started wearing the adidas Tour 360 22 golf shoes.
