Takumi Kanaya What's In The Bag?

A Japanese professional that has risen up the world golf rankings incredibly quickly, Takumi Kanaya has become entrenched in the world's top 100 golfers, securing his position in Major tournaments and some of the biggest events of the year.

Takumi Kanaya What's In The Bag?

Driver

Ping G410

Starting at the top of the bag he uses a Ping G410 LST driver and currently uses a full bag of clubs from the brand. It has since been replaced by the Ping G425 LST but at the time the G410 LST was the model most Ping staff players used. At 450cc, it’s 5cc smaller in volume compared to the G410 Plus, but this isn’t especially noticeable. Nor does this make it any less user-friendly – in fact, Ping say it is three per cent more forgiving than the G400 LST driver. At address, the Turbulators are immediately noticeable although the creased hook effect at the back hides the moveable weight well and certainly makes the driver look faster.

Fairways

Kanaya also carries a Ping G410 fairway wood instead of the G425 option although we are yet to confirm what loft he has, and the same can be said for the driver. 

Hybrid

He then carries a Ping G410 hybrid but we are yet to confirm what exact loft it has.

Irons

Ping G710, Ping i210

Kanaya uses a combo set of irons at the moment, going from a Ping G710 as his longest iron to a set of Ping i210's. His five-iron is the G710 and the rest of his irons, from six-iron down to pitching wedge are the i210's. 

Wedges

Moving on to the wedges, Kanaya uses three Ping Glide Forged Pro wedges with 52, 56 and 60 degrees of loft. 

Putter

His final club in the bag is a Ping Sigma 2 Arna Stealth which is a small mallet design. 

Ball

Bridgestone Tour B X

We believe Kanaya signed with Bridgestone to play the brands's golf ball in 2021. His model of choice is a Tour B X which is the same model used by Bryson Dechambeau. It is an excellent premium offering that provides a firm, solid feel on all shots and spins really well around the greens while being long and consistent off the tee.
