About to turn pro we take a look inside the bag of the Norwegian professional.

Viktor Hovland What’s In The Bag?

Norwegian youngster Viktor Hovland has taken the game of golf by storm managing to finish as the low amateur at both The Masters and the US Open in 2019. The last player to do that in the same season was Matt Kuchar in 1998.

Youngsters of Hovland’s talent that are turning professional often have a lot of options when deciding what equipment manufacturer to sign with. In the past he has shown an affection for using TaylorMade clubs like their M5 driver, however Hovland has now officially signed with Ping.

“Joining the PING staff is really exciting for me as I’ve always had tremendous respect for the company and what it represents,” said Hovland. “The technology behind the equipment and the service they provide allows me to focus on getting better and not worrying about my equipment. The Norwegian connection is also really cool. Karsten Solheim and his family have done so much for the game of golf.”

But lets get to his current club setup.

At the top of the bag he uses a Ping G410 LST driver which he used to lead the field at the US Open in strokes gained off the tee. He also carries  a G410 LST fairway.

“The G410 LST driver is a great fit for my game. It looks really good and I know I’m going to hit the center of the face. It flies in the window I like and the spin is right for my game. I can swing with confidence off the tee knowing the results will be long and straight.”

Shifting to the irons Hovland carries three different models. He carries a Callaway X Forged UT with a Graphite Design shaft and then he has Ping i210 irons from five-iron down to pitching wedge too.

He then has three Ping Glide 3.0 wedges with 50, 56 (bent to 55), and 60 degrees of loft respectively.

Finally he had been using a TaylorMade TP Black Copper Mullen 2 DB SS putter, and a Ping Sigma 2 Wolverine H model before switching to his current flat-stick, the Ping PLD Prototype ‘Hovi’ as pictured above.
