Lee Westwood What’s In The Bag?:
“So I’ve got a Ping G400, 10 degrees of loft and it actually is 10 degrees it hasn’t been cranked or anything like that. I love this driver its given me some extra distance.
“Ping G400 3-wood, 14. and a half degrees of loft, once again an Aldila shaft.
“Then I go to a 3-hybrid, 19 degree, sort of fills that gap between 4 iron and 3-wood, I don’t carry a 3 iron because greens are too firm nowadays, so this goes in a bit higher and stops a bit quicker.
“Well certain weeks I do carry a three iron but usually I don’t carry a three iron and this goes about 235-240 yards so it fits that gap nicely.
“4 iron through to U-wedge are all i200’s, I carry two U-wedges, ones in between a wedge and the other U-wedge counts as my sand iron because they don’t make a sand iron in this set.
U-wedge that goes 121 yards and sand wedge that goes 106, and I carry the new Glide lob wedge 60 degrees.

2016 Open Champion Henrik Stenson talks us through…
“I have used this particular lob wedge for a long time with this particular sole, gives me a lot of variation around the greens and its great out of bunkers as well.
“Very rarely do I hit my lob wedge full out, occasionally I do and it goes around 91-92 yards.
“Alignment sticks which I use on the range, lining up and I use on the putting green as well.”
When discussing moving into newer models or keeping older ones, Lee went on;
“It depends what it is, with having been with Ping for so many years, generally they bring along a club and it fits me immediately I don’t need to do much tinkering around.
I do change but I try not to change too often, I like the clubs to stay the same, and then I know if I’m hitting them bad, its me.”
“The putter is a Tyne H-Sigma, just a regular Ping grip on it, Ive had the line made a little bit bigger and it moved a little bit towards the heel, but I like this at the moment it feels good in my hands. It feels heavy but I can grip it light.”
