We take a look at the equipment used by Hideki Matsuyama

Hideki Matsuyama What’s In The Bag?

Given his high standards, 2018 was a year to forget for Japanese professional Hideki Matsuyama. He started the year fifth in the world and yet failure to get into the winners circle has seen him rise to his current ranking of 28th.

Regardless, a player of his skill is sure to bounce back but what clubs does the 26-year-old play? We have taken a look.

The five-time PGA Tour winner used to have the Ping G400 Tour 65 driver in the bag and was seen using the Callaway Epic Flash driver at the Sony Open. However at the WGC-Dell Technologies Matchplay he was using the TaylorMade M5.

The Japanese player also has the TaylorMade M4 3 wood in the bag.

His mix and match bag continues with the Ping G410 hybrid and a TaylorMade M3 3 iron.

His irons are Srixon Z945 blades and he currently has two Cleveland RTX-4 wedges in too.

His putter situation appears to be shifting regularly after he was pictured at the Sony Open using a Scotty Cameron prototype one day, and then shifted back to his usual Scotty Cameron Circle T GSS putter the next. Then at the WGC-Dell Technologies Matchplay he was spotted with a TaylorMade prototype pictured below.

His ball is the Srixon Z Star XV.
