Since Nike stopped club production, Patrick Reed's equipment set-up has changed drastically.
Patrick Reed What’s In The Bag?
Patrick Reed switched his equipment a lot in 2018, here we take a look at what clubs he has in the bag for the 2019 season.
Reed has been in an equipment limbo for the last year or so, having tinkered with PXG, Bettinardi, Titleist, Callaway and Cleveland gear, as well as Bridgestone and Srixon balls. The story of Patrick Reed’s golf clubs is unique and interesting.
The American signed an apparel deal with Nike in January 2018 and that saw his equipment, bag, apparel and hat contracts with Callaway end. It took Reed back to Nike, where he was a staffer between turning pro in 2011 up until mid-2013.
The new deal has given him more freedom with his equipment, and he has been seen using a whole host of different gear on Tour this year, including a TaylorMade M3 driver, his old Callaway Great Big Bertha Alpha 816 DBD driver and a Ping G400 driver.
He was using a Nike VR Pro Limited fairway wood which he was using back in his Nike days as it was released in late 2011 – but right now he looks as if he has put a TaylorMade M6 fairway in the bag. This comes after he was seen testing Titleist’s TS2 model as well.
Reed has also been chopping and changing the hybrid/utility slot in his bag. In the past he has been spotted with driving irons from titleist and honma and he also has a Ping G410 hybrid in the bag for a while. At the moment he has gone for one of Titleist’s new U500 models.
At the time, in addition to the Nike fairway, Reed also put a set of the company’s irons in the form of the VR Pro blades which were released in late 2010. These irons were in the bags of a number of Nike staffers before the company announced they were to stop making golf clubs in August 2016.
However, the Masters champion is no longer using his Nike irons, instead he has two models from Callaway. His four-iron is a 2013 Callaway X Forged model and then from five-iron to pitching wedge he has Razr MB’s.
Reed has a set of Artisan Golf wedges. They’re made in Texas at Nike’s former ‘Oven’ facility by master clubmaker Mike Taylor and his team. The company make custom hand-crafted clubs and specifically say on their instagram page that they’re not sold in stores.
He has them in 51° and 56° and also carries a 61° Titleist Vokey SM5 lob wedge.
Reed after using a Scotty Cameron prototype for a while, has now switched back to using a Odyssey White Hot Pro #3.
He also switched his ball from a Srixon Z-Star XV for a Titleist Pro V1.
