Charley Hoffman What's in the bag - We take a look at the gear used by US Masters first round leader Charley Hoffman who shot a 65 on day one

Charley Hoffman What’s in the bag

Charley Hoffman takes a four shot lead into the second round of the Masters, something no-one has done since 1955 when Jack Burke junior achieved the feat.

Hoffman also birdied all of the par threes at Augusta National, only the third time this has happened in Masters history.

The only top-10 finish Hoffman has had in 22 major starts was aT-9 at 2015 Masters, when he was in the final group with Jordan Spieth – the eventual winner.

Hoffman put together his opening round 65 with a full compliment of Titleist equipment, including a mixed set of irons, two hybrids and the new Titleist Pro V1 ball.

Hoffman combines a 716 AP2 5-iron for forgiveness with 714 MB irons, which have a smaller profile and feel slightly softer.

He uses a lower lofted Titleist 915 hybrid and a higher lofted Titleist 913 hybrid in place of his long irons – the longest iron in his bag is a 5-iron.

The American also has an unusual Scotty Cameron prototype mallet putter with three bright red sightlines on the crown.
