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.

    You forgot to take a photo of the shampoo and conditioner in his bag.

    Could clearly do with another putter, or another technique… Nice to see someone who assembles his bag by feel like amateurs usually do. Surprised there’s not a set of Mizunos there.

    Johnny,
    Definitely the X in the DFs and not the TX?

    I’d imagine if you tip the X a bunch it’d play more Whiteboardish, with the smaller butt o.d. on the X. Thanks

    How come his Ping 7 wood has 18 degrees? Think its only adjustable down to 19 degrees. I also see a cally MD forged wedge in the photos not a MD4.

    Meaning?

      Meaning the guys who aren’t locked into equipment contracts play a mixed bag of sticks. It’s cool to see what non-contracted players CHOSE to put in their bag instead of only playing a certain line of equipment for a paycheck.

        Thanks! Simply put, these players will only use what works for them.

        Agree! I much prefer seeing the non-contracted players bags as it gives me a better look at what they truly want to play with. And reminds me of my own bag of mish mash brands

          Technically Fleetwood is a contracted player. Former Nike equipment players like Koepka, Casey and Fleetwood are still getting paid their equipment contract from Nike. When Nike folded their equipment production, they’re still required to pay these players the remainder of their contracts, unless they sign equipment deals with someone else like Rory and Tiger did with TM. So this gave them the opportunity to play whatever equipment they want but still get paid an equipment contract. I guarantee when their Nike equipment contract expires, they’ll strongly consider signing a new deal with another company.

          • Duh

            Aug 13, 2019 at 11:49 am

            Correct. But in the meantime, he can play what he wants, which was kind of the point of the discussion.

    Great article Johnny. Crazy Tommy plays such low lofted woods. Especially for his size.

      TF is amazing: looks like a cross between a well-worked caddy and a council day labourer, but plays like he owns the place. And chill too.
      Much more interesting and watchable than the endless production line of relatively dull,privileged,pouting and often petulant clones who come out of the US college system.
