Tiger Woods is one of golf's all-time greats with 15 Major wins and 82 PGA Tour victories but he isn't done yet, with the American back out on tour after ankle surgery in 2023.
So what clubs does Tiger Woods use? The American 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.
Woods has a club deal with TaylorMade and a ball deal with Bridgestone, with his current setup featuring 13 TaylorMade clubs, his iconic Scotty Cameron putter and a Bridgestone ball.

TaylorMade Qi10 LS
Tiger Woods has been using TaylorMade drivers since 2016 before signing with the company in early 2017.
Woods put the new yet-to-be-released Qi10 LS driver in play ahead of his return at the 2023 Hero World Challenge, having previously used the Stealth Plus model. He also had a new shaft in it, switching out his Ventus Black 6 X for the Graphite Design Tour AD-VF.
Not much is known about the driver just yet, which Rory McIlroy and Tommy Fleetwood also have in the bag, other than details recorded on the USGA's List of Conforming Driver Heads. It has a carbon face, like the Stealth and Stealth 2 drivers as well as a speed pocket and a sliding fade/draw weight to adjust shot shape. Woods has his in the draw setting.
TaylorMade SIM Ti, TaylorMade M3
Woods still has a couple of older models in the fairway wood department, with a SIM Ti 3 wood from 2020 lofted at 13.5 degrees and an older M3 5 wood from 2018 at 19 degrees.
Both are fitted with Mitsubishi Diamana D+ Limited shafts. The 5 wood occasionally comes out of the bag and gets replaced by a 2-iron for when he needs to hit those famous Tiger stingers.
TaylorMade P7TW + TaylorMade P770 long iron(s)
Woods occasionally puts a couple of longer irons in the bag, favoring the P770 model in the 2-and-3-irons.
The American has always used butter-knife-like blades and that remains the same to this day. His current set, the TaylorMade P7TW, have been in the bag since 2019 after briefly carrying a TW Phase 1 model, also from TaylorMade.
Each P7TW iron "has been meticulously shaped to meet Tiger's discerning eye - longer blade length, thinner topline, progressive face height, and more," TaylorMade say.
All of his irons are fitted with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts.

TaylorMade MG4 TW Grind
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 MG4 models in the TW grind, with loft of 56 and 60 degrees. He appears to be lacking a gap wedge in his setup 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 why he's able to carry a 5-wood and 3-iron.
Scotty Cameron GSS Newport 2
Tiger Woods' flat stick is arguably the world's most famous putter, having been used in 14 of his 15 Major victories. The iconic Scotty Cameron GSS Newport 2 is his old faithful, and he's had lots of back-ups through the years, including a 2001 version that sold for $44,000 at auction.
Woods has it fitted with a blacked-out Ping PP58 grip.
Bridgestone Tour B X
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 after Nike stopped making equipment, 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 had been using since it was launched by the brand in 2020, although he switched into the firmer Bridgestone Tour B X model in 2022.
According to Golf.com, Woods found Bridgestone B X carried 10 yards extra.
FootJoy Premiere Series
Tiger had been using Nike golf shoes for many, many years but he turned up to the 2022 Masters tournament wearing FootJoy golf shoes. He has switched between the Premiere Series Packard and Tarlow models during tournaments since.
“I have very limited mobility now with the rods and plates and screws that are in my leg,” he said at the time, following his 2021 car accident. “I needed something different, something that allowed me to be more stable. That’s what I’ve gone to.”
Nike released a statement saying it will continue to work with Tiger Woods "to meet his new needs."
Tiger Woods uses the Golf Pride Tour Velvet Cord 58R model in all of his clubs aside from the putter, which features the Ping P58. The Tour Velvet Cord is the most popular cord grip on Tour, with this type of grip better for players with sweaty hands or to help in wet weather. Cord grips also offer a firmer feel and more feedback through the hands vs a full rubber one.
Tiger Woods' Headcover
Tiger Woods has used the same driver headcover for his entire career, and there's a cool story behind it. The Tiger headcover is made by the company Daphne's Headcovers. After Woods' 1997 Masters win, Daphne's reportedly had 30,000 orders for the Tiger cover.
According to a brilliant Golf.com feature with Daphne's headcovers, Woods was gifted a new headcover each year by his mother Kultida, with the words Rak jak Mea (Love from Mom in Thai) hand-sewn into, and each year 'Tida' would note down Tiger's achievements and store the piece of paper in the headcover he used that year.
