    Reminds me of the x20 Tours, which were very straight or the old forged from 04. What year did these debut?

    Highly deflationary for the OEMs. Proof we don’t need whatever’s the newest in order to be good.

    Allthough, he left the driver out and carried a 2 iron when he won today. Dont know the loft of that 2 iron.

    @Nathan, he seldom have the 3iron in the bag, d,3w,5w, 4,5,6,7,8,9, 4 wedges and a putter makes 14 clubs.

      Aug 20, 2017 at 8:56 pm

      I wonder what the distance difference is between the 5w and the 4i.

    • Robert Peterson

      Aug 20, 2017 at 10:16 pm

      Not quite. Usually has 3 iron, usually doesn’t have 4 wedges (added 50*)

    • Stan67

      Aug 21, 2017 at 3:52 pm

      Nope. Stenson usually carries: D, 3W(!), 5W, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, PW, 52, 58, P.

      • R.Q.

        Aug 21, 2017 at 5:36 pm

        Okay, but I still wonder what distance difference there is between his 5W and 3i.
        It could be 20+ yards!

    Lofts on the irons are interesting.

    Is there a photo showing the 3 iron loft? Is it 18* ??

    Look at that huge blob of steel on the toe of those ugly Cally Legacy irons. Couldn’t they have put a plug of high density tungsten into the toe and eliminated all that steel overhang?
    BTW, I love that WITB lime green umbrella!

    • Rano

      Aug 21, 2017 at 3:44 am

      It’s part of the design aesthetic. The heel has the same. (agree the clubs are ugly though)

      • Chris

        Aug 21, 2017 at 7:11 am

        These are the JDM forged s20 steel irons that people have been drooling over for a long time, and the general consensus is they are superb looking and playing. There are several threads in the forum section about the Legacy Black irons. In fact, you two are the first people I have heard that think these are ugly.

        • Ian

          Aug 21, 2017 at 8:31 am

          Agreed
          Good looking irons.

        • Sid

          Aug 21, 2017 at 11:42 am

          Ping and TM use tungsten inserts for toe weighting and this makes their clubs look more sleek and the CG is closer to the face too. The Legacy looks like it’s got a swollen toe hanging out there. UgLY!

            Almost EVERY WITB that we’ve ever seen proves that professional golfers don’t care how the clubs look in the bag, but how it performs for their game. If they care about looks, it’s at address.

            It’s fine if your bag is all about visual appeal, as long as you can admit it, and accept that your game may suffer for the sake of visual aesthetic.

            • Sid

              Aug 22, 2017 at 12:09 am

              IOW you are what toys you own and not what you can do. That’s the gearhead song.

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.
