    I would absolutely love to see the Trackmen data on this guy with all his clubs. His numbers on his wedges have to be really unique.

    Shouldn’t his lob wedge be marked “LX” instead of “VI”…

      If he was using the proper roman numeral system it would be XVI but he is using VI ie: 6 as in 56

    43.00″ driver…. !

    Since I am never ever going to build myself a set of irons where every one is 37.5″, the most interesting thing in this bag is the short 43″ driver. With an SLDR 430 head, no less.

    It’s a little hard to get any comprehensive stats on his driving. He’s played in three PGA Tour events, and made the cut in one. The only driving distance stat I saw put him at 290.4 yards. With a long drive of 337, and 78.6 % of fairways hit.

    With a 43-inch driver. Forty-three inches.

    What are his distances for these clubs?

    Oh, and the swing is very similar to Moe Norman’s single axis swing. There are a number of people who teach a similar swing, the most well known is the Todd Graves Golf School. I believe Mr. Dechambeau taught himself to swing that way. Love it!!!! Nice to see that style swing finally make it into the winners circle.

    There is a company called 1 Iron Golf in the US that makes all the irons the same length. Very good site…1 IronGolf.com. Site has a lot of great info.

    I guess he likes it at that weight. After all, the shafts of the irons are all the same, so he’s maintaining the same feel for all of them, so he’s had them built that way. Totally psycho.

    Guys tommy armour makers of 845s had a set of irons available called EQL (equal) all shafts were same 6 iron length from about 1991 ish

      an important factor is to get all the head weights the same that is why it is difficult to make a set out of standard irons the short iron heads 8-9 and wedges will be too heavy the longer 4-5-6 iron heads too light these can be fixed with lead tape

  14. BustyMagoo

    Jun 10, 2015 at 2:56 pm

    I’ve never seen different irons that were all the same length. Does he have them adjusted strong?

    • leo

      Jun 11, 2015 at 3:17 pm

      the 4 iron is a little strong at 20 degrees all others look to be standard lofts 46 pw and 4 degree increments through the 5 iron i had a set of single length irons built several years ago it takes some adjustments and trial s to grt the distance gaps correct

    So, where’s the WITB for TW when he shoots 85? That’s closer to what most of us shoot anyway. Just sayin.

    I meant to say the WITB VIDEO from the other article

    Wasn’t the driving iron quite a bit longer than the other irons in the WITB from the other article on WRX?

      U saw the video
      U know that it is

        Yeah, that’s why I brought it up, genius.

        • BustyMagoo

          Jun 10, 2015 at 2:55 pm

          Then why did you ask the question?

          • Andrew

            Jun 10, 2015 at 3:27 pm

            Because I didn’t know if I was wrong or he’d changed the length of the club or if I misunderstood. Why are you whining about the length of a golf club?

Image c/o Srixon (obviously, Lowry does not have all wedges pictured in play)

Additional Shane Lowry WITB notes, via Johnny Wunder

2019 Open Champion Shane Lowry, compared to Tommy Fleetwood, is on the other side of the spectrum in regards to brand loyalty. He is Cleveland/Srixon in 12 clubs including the ball with the only two exceptions being the TaylorMade M4 3-wood and his Odyssey Putter. In this case, that makes sense, those clubs seem to be a challenge to swap, especially the 3-wood, and Cleveland/Srixon isn’t really known for putters on the PGA Tour.

I got some interesting intel on his driver Switch from the TaylorMade M2 into the Srixon Z585.

According to Rodney McDonald, VP of Tour Operations for Cleveland/Srixon, Shane is a dedicated staff member that is always willing to get all Cleveland/Srixon in the bag.

On Lowry switching into the Z585 Driver McDonald had this to say

“The switch was very easy. Even though he had won early in the year with another driver, he was not driving it good at all. He is very loyal to our team and our products that he came to us to find a new driver. He instantly loved the look of the Z 585 and once we started testing the numbers were exactly what he was looking for. His main comment about the driver is how his misses are minimal and he can hit all the shots he wants to.”

Tommy Fleetwood’s bag is as awesome as he is (Tommy Fleetwood WITB)

Published

on

I’m obsessed with this guy. If there was a movie about his life, Aaron Taylor Johnson would play him…can we make that happen?

His bag has taken over for my past obsession with Charles Howell III, David Toms, and Rocco Mediate. I’m drawn to players that tweak a bit, it keeps it fun for me on Getty Images at 3 a.m.

Much like a Bernhard Langer, there is no telling what OEM sticks will land in Fleetwood’s bag. It’s awesome and a sign of the non-contract “eat what you kill” mentality shared by some of the biggest names out there (BK and Patrick Reed to name a couple).

Tommy has messed around quite a bit in the past two years with his bag and the fun part is, he’s not afraid to shake it up.

Here is a partial list of clubs that were previously in the bag since ’17 leading up to his current setup

  • TaylorMade M3 driver (Mitsubishi Kuro Kage 70X shaft)
  • Titleist 917 D2 driver (@ 8.5 degrees) (Mitsubishi Kuro Kage 70X shaft)
  • Nike Vapor Fly 3-wood (13 degrees) (UST Mamiya VTS ProForce Red 7X shaft)
  • Nike Vapor Fly 5-wood (Mitsubishi Diamana Blue 80TX shaft)
  • Titleist 917 3-wood (14 degrees) (UST Mamiya VTS ProForce Red 7X shaft)
  • Titleist TS3 3-wood (12.75 degrees) (UST Mamiya ProForce Black 7X shaft)
  • Nike VR Pro Blades
  • Callaway MD4 wedges
  • Ping G410 3-wood (14 degrees) (UST Mamiya ProForce Black 7X shaft)
  • Ping G410 7-wood (18 degrees) (Mitsubishi Diamana BF 80T shaft)
  • Odyssey 2-Ball (plumbers neck)

His grips are also a fun one, he goes Blue Golf Pride TVC in his woods, Iomic Sticky in his irons, and black Golf Pride TVC in his wedges. God, I love this guy!

Tommy Fleetwood WITB @The Open

Driver: TaylorMade M6 (9 degrees @7.5)
*has lofted up a bit, his driver has been down to 6.5 I’ve heard.
Shaft: Mitsubishi DF 70X (45 inches)

3-wood: TaylorMade M6 (15 degrees @14)
Shaft: Mitsubishi DF 70X (42.5 inches)
*was in a Ping G410 until the Scottish Open where he switched into the M6.

Irons: TaylorMade GAPR Lo (@18.75), Srixon Z785 (4-iron, 23 degrees), TaylorMade P7TW (5-9)
Shafts: GAPR: Project X 6.5 (39.5 inches), 4-iron: Project X 6.5 (38.5 inches), 5-9: Project X 6.5 (38 inches @ 5-iron, minus 1/2 inch from there) (26, 30, 34, 38, 42 degrees)

Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM7 (47, 52, 55, 60 degrees)
Shafts: True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400

Wedge notes: 48.10F (bent to 47) Tour chrome finish
52.08F raw
56.10 (bent 55) raw
60.08 raw

Putter: Odyssey White Hot Pro #3
Grip: Super Stroke Mid Slim 2.0


Quick thought: I do see a specific trend when it comes to free agents, and it’s mildly telling. Keep in mind I understand that it’s not 100 percent, but the trends are there.

In woods and wedges specifically, TaylorMade seems to be a popular choice in the overall woods category for non-signed players and Vokey is hands down the wedge of choice. Makes sense in my opinion, I’m not a big “best company” guy, but I do understand the choice. Both companies make and have made extremely high-performing sticks for many years. Consistency in anything is a hard opponent to beat. When Nike bounced out of clubs Rory, BK, Casey, and a few others put Vokeys straight in, and a BK and Casey put TM woods in the bag. (Just an example for context)

Anyway, Tommy Fleetwood is four back going into the final round. I have a weird feeling if it blows he could be holding a trophy.
