Part of the Callaway team, this season hasn’t started the way Patrick Reed had hoped. He’s yet to contend in any of the big early tournaments, and has sipped out of the world top 10. We don’t expect this slip to last long, Reed is just too strong of a player. In fact, at the Dell match play tournament it was funny to hear his name come up over and over again when golfers were asked who they really didn’t want to face that week.
Reed swings a top-to-bottom Callaway bag, from his Big Bertha driver to Odyssey putter. We will keep this page updated with any changes he makes to his bag as the 2017 PGA season carries on. It’s worth noting that Reed has been seen testing the new Apex MB irons that Rory McIlroy is currently hitting. That being said he still can’t quit those Razr blades he’s hit for years.
Patrick Reed : What’s in the Bag for 2016
Driver: Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 816 DBD at 9 degrees
Shaft: Aldila Rogue Limited Edition Silver 70X
We are all familiar with the Big Bertha name and what this series stands for. Our last WITB article covered Phil Mickelson and he was using the Big Bertha Alpha 3 wood. Each generation of Big Bertha drivers and fairway woods seem to improve upon the last, and the new 816 is no exception.
3 Wood: Callaway Great Big Bertha at 15 degrees
Shaft: Aldila Rogue Limited Editional Black 80X
The Great Big Bertha fairway wood is one of Callaway’s biggests successes and most popular fairway woods ever created. The Great Big Bertha fairway woods are long, forgiving and playable thanks to a Forged Hyper Speed Face Cup and Modern Warbird Sole. Perhaps the best thing about these clubs is that they are a season old now, and you can pick up a 3 and 5 wood from Global Golf for under $190.
Irons: Callaway Razr X Muscleback
Shaft: Temper Dynamic Gold X100 Tour Issue
Reed has hit these Razr X Musclebacks for a few seasons now, and if you are a fan of blades they should probably be on your radar. Soft feel, great control, but plenty of distance and forgiveness thanks to the punch it packs in the sole of the club. They play amazing, but what really sets them apart is the look. You have to be a good ball striker to use them (single digit handicap) but if you can pull it off, it’s hard to imagine finding a better looking iron. Pick up a set of lightly used Razr X irons from just $250 at Global Golf.
Wedges: Callaway Mack Daddy 2 -- 52 and 56 | Titleist TVD Prototype -- 60
Shaft: True Temper Dynamic Gold S400 Tour Issue
If you have followed our WITB series, then by now you are familiar with the Mack Daddy wedges… they are some of the most popular wedges on the tour, and are also in Phil Mickelson and Henrik Stenson’s bag. The ultimate in feel and control, these wedges allow you to work the ball any way, out of any lie. The TVD Prototype is a Vokey design, an older club, but obviously still does the trick for Reed. You can pick up a used TVD for around $30.
Putter: Odyssey White Hot Pro #3
It comes as no surprise that everyone on the Callaway team is using an Odyssey putter. Odyssey has made some of the best putters on the planet for the better part of a decade, and the White Hot Pro #3 is no exception. For amateurs looking for a blade putter with great feel, this one is a no-brainer. If you can’t find a 3.0 online or locally, check out the 2.0, it’s another great putter regardless of your skill or handicap.
