We take a look inside the bag of Francesco Molinari back when he won the 2018 Open Championship.

Francesco Molinari 2018 Open Winning Clubs – Classic WITB

Playing alongside Tiger Woods during the final round of the 2018 Open Championship, not many gave Italian Francesco Molinari much of a chance. However he played a perfect round of golf to collect his first major championship.

On a tense final day, Molinari made 13 pars in a row before birdieing the par-5 14th and then pulled off an incredible birdie up the last to get into the clubhouse at eight-under. Nobody could catch him.

In this piece we have taken a look at the clubs he used to produce this brilliant 69.

Back in 2018, aside from his putter Molinari had a full bag of TaylorMade clubs. At the top of the bag he used their M4 as his driver and then had a 13 degree M3 fairway wood.

To combat their dry fairways he then had a TaylorMade P790 UDI driving iron and also carried a normal P790 4-iron too. The rest of his irons were TaylorMade P750’s.

He carried three wedges for the week, two of which were TaylorMade Milled Grind’s and the other was a Hi-Toe model.

His only non-TaylorMade club in the bag was his stunning Bettinardi Das BB-0 putter as you can see below. He also used that model prior to The Open Championship too where he put together a remarkable run of results. He won the BMW PGA Championship, came second at the Italian Open, won the Quicken Loans National a couple of weeks later and came second at John Deere. All this came before his Open win.
