Henrik Stenson is one of the hottest golfers on the PGA tour, and our readers have made it clear that they want to know what is in his bag for 2017. Here is the updated list of clubs from Stenson’s bag from his early 2017 PGA and European starts.
Stenson, the number 5 golfer in the world, obviously uses his sponsor Callaway’s clubs. We will eventually add a quick review to each club here, but know that you can find reviews on the links below. You can also check out the link for current pricing, or find each of these clubs at a steep discount through Callaway Pre-Owned clubs. These clubs are slightly used, but have been inspected, repaired if needed, and then sold at about 50% the price of new clubs.
Driver: Callaway XR at 9-degrees
Shaft: Oban Kiyoshi Tour Blue 60X
We have been touting the all new Callaway XR since late December 2015… Callaway partnered with Boeing to make a faster club, and let’s just say it worked. First of all, look at the profile of the club head, it looks fast… just saying. We are still testing the club and our official review should be out later this month, but my initial take is that this club is a game changer. The original XR was a phenomenal overall driver, but the new XR and XR pro are near perfect. It offers only one adjustment, loft, obviously Stenson prefers 9-degrees, looks sleek, and is surprisingly forgiving for being a true player’s driver.
3 Wood: Callaway Diablo Octane Tour at 13 degrees
5 Wood: Callaway X Hot Pro at 17 degrees
3 and 5 Wood Shafts: Grafalloy Blue X
If you haven’t hit these two clubs yet, you are in for an absolute treat. These clubs are long, long, long… they may be the longest fairway woods on the market. Both clubs look great, feel great, and perform great. If you are in the market for a 3 and a 5, these have to be on your shortlist.
That being said, you have to match your fairway woods to your game… Henrik Stenson has one of the best swings on the planet, so hitting pro fairway woods comes easy to him. If you have a slower swing, these clubs may not be for you, they aren’t amongst the most forgiving fairway woods on the market. That being said, if you generally lean toward pro clubs, Callaway hit a home run with both of these clubs.
Irons: Callaway Legacy Black Irons – Stenson carries 3-PW
Shafts: Nippon N.S. Pro Modus3 120X
Given these clubs are primarily available in Asia, and 75%+ of our readers are in the US, we won’t get into Stenson’s irons too much. These clubs feature a good bit of forward-thinking technology… Including a carbon-steel clubhead and a back cavity filled with a rubber-infused insert that assists sound and feel. If you decide to order a set of these, we highly recommend you reshaft them, as Japanese clubs tend to have significantly softer shafts than most US players are used to.
If you want these irons, they will cost you… $1,100 – $1,500. However, we did find Callaway selling a few sets on Amazon (direct from Callaway … important), the link to the Callaway product page is below.
Wedges: Callaway Mack Daddy 2 Tour Grind
Shafts: Nippon N.S. Pro Modus3 120X
The Callaway Mack Daddy 2 Tour Grind wedges are all about feel and control. You couldn’t tell by his play, but Stenson broke these clubs in over the course of last season. Given his improved performance around the greens last season, we expect the Callaway Mack Daddy’s to hang around in Stenson’s bag for 2016.
Putter: Odyssey White Hot XG #7H
We love Oddssey putters, they are consistently popping up in our top putter reviews. The great thing about this putter from Callaway and Odyssey? You can get it preowned direct from Callaway for as low as $90 from Callaway Preowned.
Ball: Titleist Pro V1x
The Titleis Pro V1 balls are popping up all over our WITB series… Most recently with Rickie Fowler, and now again with Stenson. It comes as no surprise as they were our best golf ball for 2015. They may not fit your budget, but if you can afford around $4 per ball then these are the best on the market.
