Tiger Woods What's In The Bag?

He might not play anywhere near as often as we’d all love to see, but Tiger Woods is still the biggest attraction in golf and the number one needle mover when it comes to equipment. TaylorMade realise this which is why they pay the big bucks to have him and Rory McIlroy (the second biggest needle mover!) on their staff. 

Woods and McIlroy both signed with TaylorMade in 2017 after Nike’s golf division closed, and Woods currently plays almost a full bag of TaylorMade equipment, with the one notable exception being his iconic Scotty Cameron Newport 2 putter. Woods also has a ball deal with Bridgestone. 

Tiger’s TaylorMade deal is said to be worth upwards of $10m per year and although most of his 15 Major wins came prior to his switch to TaylorMade, he was using their clubs when he won the 2019 Masters. In fact, Tiger actually helps to design the clubs he uses. So without further ado, let’s get into the specific bag setup of the Eldrick ‘Tiger’ Woods.


What Driver Does Tiger Woods Use?

The new TaylorMade Qi10 driver is one of the best golf drivers of 2024 and will be in the bag of many of the brand’s Tour Pros this season, including Rory McIlroy. Woods, however, is using the lower spinning Qi10 LS driver with a 10.5 degree head. 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.

In terms of shaft, Woods uses a Graphite Design Tour AD VF 6 X, which is a change from last season when he was using a Fujikura Ventus Black 6 X in the TaylorMade Stealth Plus driver.

Fairway Woods

What Fairway Woods Does Tiger Woods Use?

Tiger is not one to change clubs on a whim just because TaylorMade have brought out a new model and his choice of fairway woods demonstrates that perfectly. He carries a 2020 SIM Ti 3 wood with a 15 degree head (set to 14.25°) and an even older 2018 M3 5 wood which has a 19 degree head which Tiger has set to 18.25°. 

Both are fitted with Mitsubishi Diamana D+ Limited 80 TX shafts. Woods does mix things up a little in this department depending on course fit, and the 5 wood occasionally comes out of the bag to be replaced by a 2-iron when he needs to hit those famous Tiger stingers.

Tiger has been experimenting with the Qi10 Fairway wood though so it won't be surprising if we see that in his bag at some point suring this year.


What Irons Does Tiger Woods Use?

When he isn’t using the 5 wood, Tiger will occasionally put a longer iron in the bag, adding P770 2 iron to the 3 iron from the same range he always carries.

Being one of the most elite ball strikers of all time, Woods 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. Tiger's irons aren't for everybody though, these are very much irons for low handicap golfers.

All of his irons are fitted with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts.


What Wedges Does Tiger Woods Use?

Woods 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 and True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400 shafts. Tiger is as meticulous as any golfer out there so as you might expect these are among the best golf wedges for spin control. 

The 56° wedge is a dual sole with heavy heel relief, while the 60° has an extremely high bounce on the leading edge with a shaved heel. 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 (or a 2-iron) as well as a 3-iron.

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.


What Golf Ball Does Tiger Woods Use?

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.

Prior to the Genesis Invitational Open in February 2024 it was revealed that Tiger has now changed to the new Bridgestone 2024 Tour B X.


What Shoes Does Tiger Woods Wear?

At the beginning of 2024 Tiger parted company with Nike after a 27 year partnership. Prior to the Genesis Invitational in February it was announced that Woods was launching his own apparel brand called Sun Day Red.  So in 2024 and beyond he will be wearing clothes and shoes from the Sun Day Red line which runs in association with TaylorMade.


What Grips Does Tiger Woods Use?

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.
