Sepp Straka What's In The Bag?

Josef 'Sepp' Straka turned professional in 2016 and since then has climbed the professional ranks slowly but surely. After winning on the Korn Ferry Tour back in 2018, eventually he found his way onto the PGA Tour and became the first Austrian to win on the Tour at the 2022 Honda Classic. He also won the 2023 John Deere Classic and played a key role in the European 2023 Ryder Cup win in Rome. Let's take a look inside his bag.

What Driver Does Sepp Straka Use?

Straka has a mix and match bag of clubs at the moment but we do believe he has an equipment contract with Srixon at the moment. We are yet to confirm what the nature of the contract is but given the setup we will go into below, it looks like it is an irons, wedges, ball and bag agreement. Regardless, at the top of the bag he actually uses a TaylorMade Qi10 LS driver. Of the three new Qi10 models, the LS driver has the most compact footprint at address (the Qi10 and Qi10 Max are slightly bigger to look down on) and as such it is probably best suited to the more consistent ball strikers. In our testing we loved the look of this driver as well as the feel.

His driver is fitted with a Mitsubishi Kai’li White 60 TX shaft.


What Fairway Woods Does Sepp Straka Use?

He then uses two TaylorMade Qi10 fairway woods with around 15 and 21 degrees of loft. The Qi10 family performed excellently in testing establishing their place among the best fairway woods. The slick looks, outstanding performance and multiple loft options make this new option near-perfect for the majority of golfers looking to update their fairway wood.

Both of his fairway woods are fitted with Mitsubishi Tensei 1K Orange 80 TX shafts.


What Irons Does Sepp Straka Use?

His first Srixon clubs in the bag are his irons, a set of ZX7 Mk II's. They go from four-iron down to nine-iron and Brooks Koepka also uses this model. These irons are very similar to the previous ZX7 design, meaning they offer the more accomplished golfer a beautiful, compact head as well as great playability across the set. We also think it is an excellent option for those golfers who want a soft-feeling iron, but don't want to break the bank.

Straka has these fitted with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts.

Moving to the wedges, he uses four Cleveland RTX-6 ZipCore Tour Rack models with 46, 52, 56 and 60 degrees of loft. The RTX-6 is Cleveland’s tour-driven wedge, designed for better players seeking feel, versatility and spin control in a traditional look. It brings more forgiveness and wet-condition spin to the course in a classy looking head. He again uses True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue shafts in the wedges, this time opting for a slightly softer S400 flex.

We noticed it did feel slightly heavier than other models due to the shaft but overall the balance was good. A new low bounce option adds to the full range of lofts and grinds so there should be one for everyone. 


What Putter Does Sepp Straka Use?

His final club in the bag is an Odyssey Stroke Lab Tuttle, which is an older model but he seems to have had it in the bag for a while. Clearly he likes and trusts the performance on offer from it. 


What Ball Does Sepp Straka Use?

Straka uses a Srixon ball, the Z-Star Diamond. The Srixon Z-Star Diamond offers a firmer compression with a softer cover to create a premium ball with distance and feel. Ideal for mid to high swing speed players, we felt it was the pick of the 2023 Z-Star range.
