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 over the past couple of years.
Reed has been in an equipment limbo for a while now 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.
His fairway woods are also an ever-changing story too. He had been using the Nike VR Pro Limited for a long time before putting the Titleist TS2 in. The TaylorMade M6 made a brief appearance in his setup as did a Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero. Currently he has a TaylorMade SIM in there.
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. Right now, the Callaway Apex appears to be the model of choice however Reed chops and changes his top order a lot.
Reed had a Titleist U500 utility iron in the bag as his three-iron but this has been swapped out for a T100.
His irons are an interesting and developing story at the moment. Having used Nike VR Pro blades for a while, Reed then played a series of different offerings from Titleist and Callaway.
Currently he has a set of Grindworks Patrick Reed Proto‘s and they go down from a four-iron down to the pitching wedge.

Currently Reed has three Titleist wedges in the bag, one of which is an SM7 (50 degrees) , one is an SM8 (56 degrees) and finally he has a 60 degree SM6.
Finally his putter is a Scotty Cameron Tour Rat prototype.
He also switched his ball from a Srixon Z-Star XV for a Titleist Pro V1.
