Here we take a look at the equipment used by Rose ahead of The Masters.

Justin Rose What’s In The Bag?

Rose uses a full compliment of TaylorMade’s 2018 M metalwoods

Rose is a long-time TaylorMade staffer and currently has a full bag of the company’s products.

Having used both the M1 and M2 drivers last season, he’s put in TaylorMade’s new M3 driver for 2018 as well as an M4 3 wood and an M3 5 wood.

He has both weights placed as far forward as possible to keep the ball low and spinning less.

Rose is one of the game’s best ball strikers and has averaged 308 yards off the tee this season on the PGA Tour and currently ranks 17th in Strokes Gained: Off The Tee.

He currently uses a special set of ‘Rose Proto’ P730 irons.

A close up of Rose’s irons

Rose played a part in the design of the P730 irons, a muscle back model with more forgiveness on strikes slightly lower and higher on the face, while horizontal MOI remains the same to maintain workability.

He plays them from 5-PW and also carries a P790 3 iron.

His wedges are the Milled Grind models as well as a Milled Grind Hi-Toe. He has been toying around with Milled Grind wedges to find the optimum one ahead of Augusta.

Surprisingly, Rose is fifth in Strokes Gained: Putting on the PGA Tour and ranks 2nd in 4th round putting with an impressive average of just over 26 putts on Sunday.
