Here we take a look at the Honma and TaylorMade equipment Justin Rose currently uses

Justin Rose What’s In The Bag?

Currently battling Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka to be the world number one, Justin Rose started his 2019 in perfect fashion winning the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines by two strokes.

It was his 10th win on the PGA Tour and what makes his win even more impressive, is that he has been playing a vastly different set of clubs than normal after he signed a 10-club partnership with Honma Golf to play its forged irons and wedges.

Interestingly he has also put a driver made by the Japanese brand in the bag too. Having used the TaylorMade M3 440 driver in 2018, Rose has switched to Honma’s TWorld 747 460 driver as you can see from the picture below.

Additionally he has also been using an M6 3 wood as well as a Honma utility iron instead of his usual TaylorMade M3 5-wood.

He has been made a prototype split set of forged Honma TWorld irons, which you can see below.

Moving into the wedges, he uses Honma TWorld Rose Proto’s and a Titleist Vokey SM7 lob wedge. Contrary to what the picture below suggests, his lofts are 52°, 56° and 60°.

Rose is also a Lamkin ambassador and he has recently had R.E.L ACE golf grips put on his irons and wedges.

Justin Rose’s Putter

Finally Rose had been using the TaylorMade TP Red Collection Ardmore 2 putter in 2018 but he has instead has gone back to the Axis1 putter which he used to great effect in his victory at Torrey Pines.

His putter was on red-hot form throughout his victorious week earlier this year as he produced rounds of 63-66-69-69.

The flat stick is a crucial part of his armoury and one of the main reasons why he left TaylorMade to join Honma, because he didn’t want to be tied down to a full-bag 14-club deal.

It features a unique face-balanced design to ensure it doesn’t open or close during the putting stroke.

“It’s the technology I’ve been interested in for a couple of years now,” Rose said at Torrey Pines.

“But I haven’t been able to use it until this year. It’s been in the back of my mind for a while, and so far, so good.”

It is fitted with a Lamkin Flat Cat grip.

His current ball is the TaylorMade TP5.
