Henrik Stenson What’s In The Bag? 2018 Clubs
2016 Open Champion Henrik Stenson talks us through his 2018 setup, including the new Callaway Rogue driver, his trusty Diablo Octane Tour 3 wood, rare Legacy Black irons and the new Mack Daddy 4 wedges.
Henrik Stenson What’s in the bag?:
“I have my old trusty 3 wood, the Diablo Octane.
“This is the 2009 model that’s been with me for a long time obviously. It’s served me well over the years and its my go-to club to hit fairways and since it’s a strong club as well I can reach some par-5s sometimes when other players might not be able to do it.
“I’ve got the 4 wood, also in the Rogue, to work my way down there and get the right yardages.
“I’ve had 4 wood because my 3 wood is a strong 3 wood it’s 13 degrees. I just went for a 4 wood to have a good gap all the way down.
“With the 4 wedges, my then weak 3 iron/strong 4 iron to the 4 wood is kind of where I’m lacking a little bit, but if you want to gain in one end you’ve got to give up something on the other.
“It’s a good set up that I’m happy with.
“I’ve got the old Grafalloy Blue that’s not really existing anymore. We have a few laying around, it’s a fair chance that I’ll retire before we run out of shafts.
“I had a change in my setup in August last year so now I’m using 4 wedges. I re-lofted my set.
“The biggest changes were the pitching wedge and 4/5 iron. So my 4 iron is really kind of in-between 3 and 4, so it’s a weak 3 or strong 4.

“Working my way up to a pretty strong pitching wedge, and then I’ve got 50 degree, a 56 and a 60 so that just gives me a little bit more distance control on that end.
“I was playing three wedges for a long time but I really felt like it would be a big benefit so I made that move and been very happy with that.
“The irons are also a little older model, the Legacy Black. Think they were only sold in Japan, Australia and Germany or something like that so not too many of those around I guess.
“I’ve got the Mack Daddy wedges and then we’re finally on the putter.
“I’ve got this old Fang White Hot #7 and I like a square-ish thick leading top line and I’ve got the lines on the Fang so I find it pretty easy to line up with. The one from Troon is happily retired in my office!”
