The Hybrids Used By the Top 100 PGA Tour Pros (2023 update)

Written by Graeme Hay | Last Updated: 21/03/2024

When we covered what clubs the best pros on Tour preferred throughout their bag we decided not to stop there.

So we went deeper into the individual club types they are using and in this post take a look at hybrid clubs – the club which has proved to be the saviour for all standards of golfers struggling to hit their long irons consistently well.

31% of the top 100 PGA Tour pros use a hybrids but none use more than one. Titleist and Callaway models are the most used hybrids with 10 of this group choosing them. Callaway’s Apex UW hybrid is the most popular on Tour with 6 pros using it including Xander Schaufelle and Sam Burns. 19º is the most common hybrid loft.

With close to 1/3 of the very best players in the world using hybrids it is comforting to know that they are also taking advantage of the help hybrids offer over traditional long irons when it comes to hitting their long shots consistently better.

As is the case with everything though when it comes to the pros the story doesn’t stop there.

And a more in-depth look at what specific hybrids they use highlights once again the attention to detail that the top players put into selecting their clubs.

Do Pros Use Hybrids? The Top 100 PGA Tour Pros Certainly Do!

When it comes to alternatives to long irons the pros have a few options whether that be a hybrid, driving/utility iron or a higher-lofted fairway wood such as a 5-wood or 7-wood.

We took a similar in-depth look at both the fairway woods ( click here ) and driving irons ( click here ) being used by the top 100 PGA Tour pros and although 5-woods are a slightly more popular choice, hybrids are a definite mainstay amongst the best pros on Tour.

While 54 of the top 100 use a 5-wood or 7-wood (36 choose 5-wood while 18 play a 7-wood) six of that group still choose to also add a hybrid to their bag.

Matt Kuchar for example carries a 20º hybrid PING Anser hybrid in addition to his TaylorMade Stealth 18º 5-wood.

So while more often than not it is the case that the top pros will be choosing between adding a higher numbered fairway wood or driving iron to add to their bag in preference to a hybrid it is not always a binary decision.

Further the fact that the near 1/3 of the top 100 that use hybrids includes some of the very best players in the world – such as Jordan Speith, Xander Schaufelle and Sam Burns – shows they are a potential option for anyone.

And while Callaway’s Apex UW hybrid is the most used among this elite group our in-depth analysis also showed 20 different models of hybrid being played by the 31 pros choosing to use them.

The use of such a large number of different hybrid clubs therefore points to no one model being dominant among the top 100 pros.

Why Don’t More Pros Use Hybrids? Shaping Shots and Conditions

We have already noted that 31 out of the top 100 pros on the PGA Tour use hybrids so when it comes to the question of do pros use hybrids the answer is clearly yes.

It has to be acknowledged a higher number among this elite group choose a 5-wood or 7-wood (54 out of 100) but the fact that nearly one third use hybrids shows it is a trusted option for even the very best players in the world.

But why don’t more pros use hybrids?

The answer to that of course comes down to personal preference but specifically what it usually comes down to is whether a player is prioritising being able to ‘work the ball’ over higher launch, spin and distance.

Long irons – and often utility/driving irons when it comes to the irons in the bag hybrids typically will replace – are frequently preferred by pros who like to be able to draw the ball right to left or fade it left to right when they choose to (i.e. ‘work the ball’).

With their increased thickness and centre of gravity further back from the clubface hybrids are not as effective in letting even the best players do that so some pros will choose long irons over hybrids on that basis.

But with their lower lofts and forward centres of gravity long irons are correspondingly not as effective as higher numbered fairway woods or hybrids in letting players hit the ball high.

And that can be a major problem on firmer courses where the pros need to be able to launch the ball high with high spin rates to hold very fast greens on a long par-3 or two shot par-5.

To solve this pros will most often either opt for a high lofted fairway wood or hybrid and as the numbers show more among the top 100 prefer the fairway woods options.

The reasons for that are again often related to personal preference.

A hybrid has the distance capabilities of an iron, but the ease of flight and the dynamics of the way a wood plays … so, there’s a combination of a lot of different things which is making them easier to hit. Former World Club-Maker of the Year Derek Murray of Fore Golf

But more precisely it can be because higher swing speed players, which the top pros are, often find hybrids make the ball turn left due to their slight draw bias as a result of them having more weight in the heel of the club.

Higher lofted fairway woods by comparison will be more neutral at impact due to their larger heads and so will go straighter which pros can prefer especially off the tee.

But with close to 1/3 of the top 100 using hybrids it is a reasonably close run thing and luckily for the pros they can swap hybrids and high numbered fairway woods in and out of their bag whenever they want and more importantly at no cost!

And at certain courses that means many of them will choose to add more hybrids rather than less.

At the high rough and firm East Course at Oak Hill for the 2023 USPGA for example former US Open Champion Matt Fitzpatrick replaced his 4-iron with a hybrid to help him tackle both the rough and the fast fairways and greens.

Other pros of course opted instead for a 7-wood and even tested 9-woods to tackle the same course but this shows in certain conditions more pros than normal can end up playing hybrids.

Interestingly an article published a decade ago in GolfWRX suggested hybrids were on their way out because the top pros would increasingly prefer the ability to ‘work the ball’ offered by utility/driving irons over the benefits of hybrids.

Given the numbers of the top 100 on the PGA Tour still using hybrids however that day seems a long way off still yet!

Hybrid Lofts are Not All the Same Among the PGA Pros

One of the intriguing things when looking at the hybrids used by the best PGA pros is that there is no set loft attached to an individual number of hybrid.

While most tour players with hybrids in the bag will use them in place of a traditional 2 or 3-iron it is not simply a case of automatically choosing an H2 or H3 hybrid.

There are really no exact set hybrid lofts that compare directly to irons and this is born out when you look at the hybrids used by the top 100 on the PGA Tour.

An analysis of that group finds different pros using hybrids of loft 17 degrees – most closely aligned to a 2-iron or 4-wood loft – all the way up to 22 degrees which comes close to the loft of a normal 4-iron at 24 degrees.

Among the top pros we even find hybrids lofts as precise as 17.25º (Patrick Rodgers) and 17.9º (Adam Hadwin), which highlights the importance of not paying too much attention to the number on the hybrid itself.

The most important thing when it comes to hybrids is distance rather than loft.

And each of these pros will spend a huge amount of time choosing a hybrid loft, rather than a hybrid number, to let them hit the ball the yardage they want and with the correct gap to the club immediately above and below it in the bag.

So if you are playing hybrids yourself – and we would recommend the vast majority amateur golfers carry at least 2 if not 3 hybrids in their bag – it is worth paying attention to the yardage gaps you hit between them rather than automatically swapping out your 2, 3 and 4-iron for example for a H2, H3 and H4.

Before you go …

Golf hybrids have been one of the great success stories of golf club designers over the last number of years as they helped ease the pain of long shots for all standards of player.

But the inevitable question which follows is – what hybrids should I have in my golf bag?

Read our next article to discover some practical guidelines – including the ’24/38 rule’ – to help you answer the question about how many hybrids you need.

Top Pro Golfers & Their Favorite Clubs For PGA Tour Play

March 11, 2023

By: Launch Point Golf

Are you ready to take your golf game up a notch? If so, get the inside scoop on the top professional golfers and their favorite clubs for PGA Tour to play.

Learn what clubs these pro players use to dominate their competition, from Tiger Woods’ driver of choice to Phil Mickelson’s putter preferences. Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth, and Dustin Johnson are just some of the names that have made it onto this list; read on for more information about how they choose which clubs work best for them—and how you can too.

Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods is one of the most successful golfers in history. His career began at a young age when he was just two years old and his father taught him how to swing a club. He quickly developed an impressive skill set that would later propel him to success on the PGA Tour.

Tiger Woods first gained recognition as a junior golfer and won several amateur tournaments before turning professional in 1996. During this time, he also won three consecutive U.S Amateur titles from 1994-1996 and became the youngest ever winner of the Masters Tournament in 1997 at 21 years old – a record which still stands today.

Throughout his career, Tiger has used many different clubs but some have become synonymous with his names such as Nike’s Ignite driver and irons; Titleist’s Pro V1x golf ball; TaylorMade’s R7 Quad driver; Callaway’s Big Bertha Fusion fairway woods; Ping’s G2i putter; Mizuno’s MP-14 irons; Bridgestone’s J33R wedges, among others.

These clubs are all designed for maximum performance on the course and help Tiger achieve consistent results each round of play

Phil Mickelson

Phil Mickelson is one of the most successful golfers in history. He has won five major championships and 42 PGA Tour events, making him one of only seven players to win at least three different majors. His early career began when he was a young boy playing on his family’s course in San Diego, California. At age 16, he became the youngest player ever to make the cut at a PGA Tour event and went on to become an All-American golfer at Arizona State University.

Early Career

Phil Mickelson made his professional debut in 1992 and quickly established himself as one of the top players on tour with several victories over the next few years.

In 2004, he finally broke through with his first major championship victory at The Masters Tournament. Since then, he has gone on to win four more majors and numerous other tournaments around the world.

Signature Clubs

Throughout his career, Phil Mickelson has been known for using some unique clubs that have helped him achieve success on tour.

He is well known for using left-handed clubs even though he is right-handed; this allows him to hit shots from all angles while still maintaining control over them due to their lighter weight compared to traditional right-handed clubs.

Additionally, Phil uses Callaway Big Bertha Fusion drivers which are designed specifically for long drives off tee boxes as well as shorter irons like wedges that help him get up close and personal with greenside pins without sacrificing accuracy or distance control from further away distances

Despite being 50 years old, Phil Mickelson continues to be competitive on tour by winning multiple tournaments each year.

In 2018 alone he won two World Golf Championships titles and in 2023’s major season, he finished runner-up twice, showing that age has not slowed down this legendary golfer yet.

Rory McIlroy

Rory McIlroy is one of the most successful golfers in history. He began his career as a young prodigy, winning multiple amateur tournaments before turning professional at age 17. His early success on the European Tour earned him worldwide recognition and he quickly became one of the top players in the world.

At just 16 years old, Rory McIlroy won his first major tournament, becoming the youngest player ever to do so.

After that win, he continued to dominate amateur tournaments across Europe and eventually turned professional at age 17.

In 2009, he made his PGA Tour debut and finished tied for third place in The Masters Tournament – an impressive feat for such a young golfer.

Since joining the PGA Tour in 2009, Rory has achieved remarkable success including four major championship wins (2011 U.S Open; 2012 & 2014 PGA Championships; 2014 British Open) as well as numerous other victories on both tours including FedEx Cup titles (2012 & 2023).

His consistency off tee boxes combined with the precise iron play has allowed him to remain competitive against some of golf’s best players year after year while also setting records along the way – making him one of today’s greatest champions.

Rory has always been known for using unique clubs during competition rounds.

He prefers Callaway drivers with graphite shafts and Titleist irons with steel shafts due to their light weight and superior accuracy when hitting shots from long distances or tricky lies around greenside bunkers or rough patches of grass.

Additionally, Rory’s choice of putter often changes depending on course conditions but usually consists of Odyssey models with oversized grips which help him maintain control over short-range putts throughout a round of golf.

Jordan Spieth

Jordan Spieth is one of the most successful golfers in history.

He began his career as a junior golfer and was quickly recognized for his talent, winning multiple tournaments before he even turned professional.

His success has continued on the PGA Tour, where he has won three major championships and earned over $50 million in prize money.

Jordan Spieth first made waves as an amateur golfer when he won the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship at age 16 in 2009.

This win earned him an invitation to play in the 2010 Masters Tournament, making him one of the youngest players ever to compete at Augusta National Golf Club.

He went on to win two more USGA titles that year, including becoming only the fifth player ever to win both the U.S Open and U.S Amateur Championships in a single season – cementing himself as one of golf’s brightest young stars with a bright future ahead of him.

Since turning pro back in 2012, Jordan Spieth has gone on to achieve remarkable success by winning 11 times across all tours worldwide, including 3 majors (Masters 2015, US Open 2015, and The Open 2017).

His ability to perform under pressure has been particularly impressive; having finished runner-up or better six times out of 10 attempts when entering Sunday’s final round within two shots of the lead.

It is this consistency that makes him so dangerous whenever competing against top fields, earning himself countless accolades along the way including being named PGA Player Of the Year twice (2015 and 2018).

Throughout his career, Jordan Spieth has relied heavily on Titleist clubs for success on tour; specifically, Titleist’s 915 driver and 714 AP2 irons which have become known as “Spiethy Irons” among fans due to their popularity amongst professionals such as Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson who also use them regularly during competition rounds.

In addition to these signature clubs, Jordan also carries TaylorMade wedges into battle each week – using them primarily around greenside bunkers or from tight lies off fairways.

Dustin Johnson

Dustin Johnson is one of the most successful golfers in history. His early career began when he was just a teenager, playing in junior tournaments and amateur events. He quickly rose to prominence on the PGA Tour, winning his first tournament at age 21.

In recent years, Dustin Johnson has become one of the top players on tour. He won his first major championship at the 2016 U.S. Open and followed it up with another win at The Masters in 2023, cementing himself as one of golf’s all-time greats.

Additionally, he currently holds several records for longest drive on tour and is consistently ranked among the world’s best players by various publications such as Golf Digest magazine

Johnson has always been known for his powerful swing and long drives off the tee. He uses TaylorMade clubs exclusively, including their M3 driver and M4 irons. These clubs are designed to help him maximize distance while still providing accuracy with every shot.

FAQs About the Top Pro Golfers & Their Favorite Clubs for Pga Tour Play

What are the most popular clubs on the pga tour.

The most popular clubs on the PGA Tour are drivers, fairway woods, hybrids, irons, and wedges. Drivers provide the longest distance off the tee and are used to hit long shots down the fairway.

Fairway woods can be used for both long and short shots from a variety of lies in the rough or fairway. Hybrids combine the characteristics of iron with those of wood to create a club that is easier to hit than either one alone.

Irons offer more control over shot shape and trajectory than other clubs while wedges help golfers get out of difficult lies around greenside bunkers or tight spots near hazards.

What irons are most popular on PGA Tour?

The most popular irons on the PGA Tour are cavity back, game improvement, and muscleback models. Cavity back irons have a hollowed-out portion in the back of the clubhead which helps to increase forgiveness and launch angle.

Game improvement irons are designed for mid-to-high handicap golfers who need more help getting their shots airborne with increased accuracy.

Muscleback irons provide greater control over shot shape and trajectory but require more skill to hit properly. All three types of iron can be found among professional players on tour, depending on individual preference and playing style.

What 14 clubs do pros carry?

Professional golfers typically carry 14 clubs in their bags. These include a driver, fairway woods (3-wood and 5-wood), irons (2 through 9), wedges (pitching wedge, sand wedge, and lob wedge), and a putter.

Drivers are used to hitting the ball long distances off the tee while fairway woods can be used for long shots from the fairway or rough.

Irons are versatile clubs that can be used for both approach shots as well as hitting out of hazards such as bunkers or roughs. Wedges provide more control around the green when chipping or pitching onto the green.

Finally, putters are designed specifically for putting on greens with minimal backspin so that you can make accurate putts close to the hole.

Who is the nicest golfer on the PGA Tour?

The answer to this question is subjective, as there are many professional golfers on the PGA Tour who could be considered nice.

However, one golfer that stands out for his kindness and sportsmanship is Rory McIlroy. He has been known to take time out of his busy schedule to help young players with their game or sign autographs for fans.

Additionally, he often goes out of his way to thank volunteers and organizers at tournaments. His positive attitude and willingness to help others make him a favorite among fans and fellow professionals alike.

The top professional golfers have all found success on the PGA Tour by using their favorite clubs. From Tiger Woods to Dustin Johnson, each golfer has a unique set of clubs that they use to get the most out of their game.

By understanding what these pros are using and how you can use them too, you can take your golf game to the next level. So don’t be afraid to try something new – look at what some of the best players in the world are doing and see if it works for you. With a little bit of practice and dedication, you’ll soon be playing like one of the top pro golfers on tour.

What Clubs Do Pros Carry?

Popular Golf Club Brands Used by Professional Golfers showing dominance by Titleist and TaylorMade

Titleist, TaylorMade, Callaway, Ping, and Srixon are the most popular golf club brands utilized by pro tour golfers. I reveal the percentage of top PGA and PGA Tour Champions players using each brand.

Titleist Golf Clubs

Titleist trumps its competitor golf club brands in popularity on the PGA Tour. The brand accounts for 36% of all irons used by the top 50 players and 24% of drivers. That value rises when we look at wedges, with 48% playing Titleist Vokey wedges. Tour players appreciate Titleist golf clubs for their feel, feedback, compact designs, and workable flight.

Patrick Cantlay , Max Homa, Matt Fitzpatrick, Will Zalatoris, Jordan Spieth, and Justin Thomas are a few pros synonymous with Titleist. Although they employ different models in their bag, I found the T100 irons are the most popular. Ten of the top 50 PGA Tour pros currently play the workable T100 range.

Conversely, the brand does not enjoy the same prominence on the PGA Tour Champions with the longer clubs. Padraig Harrington uses their TSR3 driver, while Brett Quigley and Dicky Pride use Titleist irons.

TaylorMade Golf Clubs

TaylorMade is the next most popular brand, accounting for 30% of fairway woods and irons among the top 50 PGA Tour professional golfers. TaylorMade Fairway Woods are also a popular option for the Tour Champions players, with 30% of the top 30 players using the brand.

I find the presence of the brand dwindles as we reach the lower clubs in the bag, stemming from an abundance of short-game options. Only 8.2% of the players analyzed use TaylorMade wedges on the PGA Tour, while the result was 0% on the PGA Tour Champions.

Famed TaylorMade tour staffers include Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, and Scottie Scheffler. PGA Tour Champions players who use TaylorMade clubs include Fred Couples and Vijay Singh .

Callaway Golf Clubs

Callaway follows TaylorMade as the third most golf clubs on Tour, with a healthy selection of metal woods, hybrids, irons, wedges, and putters. The brand dominates the hybrid category on both tours, with 35.31% and 26.7% of the top 50 PGA Tour and senior players using them, respectively.

Their dominance is also seen in the putting department on the youngsters and veterans tour thanks to their acquisition of Odyssey Golf. Just under one-third of the top players use a Callaway putter on the PGA Tour, but the figure almost doubles to 52.21% of pros on the seniors tour.

I was always impressed by Callaway’s result in the driver department on the PGA Tour Champions. Just under half, or 44%, of the top 30 senior golfers use Callaway drivers. Jon Rahm, Xander Schauffele , and Si Woo Kim are among the biggest names on the brand’s portfolio.

Despite severing ties with the brand in 2022, Phil Mickelson is the most famed golfer over 50 years old swinging Callaway clubs.

Ping Golf Clubs

Ping does not dominate one category specifically, but it is well represented through the bag. Twenty-four percent of senior golfers swing a Ping driver, while 18% of PGA Tour pros use the brand.

The next popular golf clubs category where the brand appears are the fairway woods and putter sections. Just under 17% of the top 30 seniors swing a Ping fairway wood compared to 16% on the PGA Tour. 

The most popular PGA Tour pros who play Ping golf clubs include Viktor Hovland, Tony Finau, Tyrrell Hatton, and Sahith Theegala. Miguel Angel Jimenez and Kevin Sutherland are two notable Ping staffers on the PGA Tour Champions.

Srixon Golf Clubs

Srixon produces value for money, soft feeling, high launching, and workable metal woods and irons for amateurs and pros. Srixon is dwarfed in tour representation compared to Titleist, TaylorMade, and Callaway golf clubs. However, they punch above their weight in the irons department.

Over 20% of the top Senior golfers employ Srixon irons in their golf bags for their feel, forgiveness, launch, and workability. It ties with Callaway for the most used irons brand by the top Champions Tour golfers.

Srixon does not manufacture wedges or putters, relying on their sister brand, Cleveland to handle this area. Hideki Matsuyama, Shane Lowry, and Brooks Koepka are the highest-profile players to operate with the brand’s irons. My former boss, Ernie Els , carries the Srixon flag high on the senior’s tour, using their irons.

Cobra Golf Clubs

Cobra is one of the least popular brands on the PGA and PGA Tour Champions with the top-ranked players. It only accounts for 2% of drivers, 4% of fairway woods, and 3.3% of irons swung by PGA Tour professional golfers.

I was surprised to find none of the best Tour Champions players using Cobra golf clubs , despite my experience of forgiving, easy launching, and long clubs superbly suited to senior golfers.

Rickie Fowler is the most popular name on the Cobra Golf books since the brand parted ways with Bryson DeChambeau in 2022.

Cleveland Golf Clubs

Although the highly forgiving Cleveland woods, irons, and hybrids perform for amateurs, they are tough to find in a pro’s bag. However, their wedges are highly popular with PGA Tour and PGA Tour Champions players for their feel, acoustics, launch, and exceptional spin.

I recorded 14.3% of the top 50 PGA Tour golfers using Cleveland wedges, with the RTX ZipCore proving the most popular golf club. The quantity of pros using Cleveland wedges increases on the Champions Tour, with 20.8% of players using the brand’s short clubs.

Brooks Koepka, Keegan Bradley, Hideki Matsuyama, and Shane Lowry are the most famous profile players using Cleveland wedges. On the Champions Tour, Jerry Kelly, Ernie Els, K.J Choi, and David Toms play wedges from the Huntington Beach, California outfit.

Most Popular Drivers on Tour

The Titleist TSR3 is the most popular big stick among the Top 50 PGA Tour pros, with 24% carrying one. Callaway came in second with the Paradym Triple Diamond, while the TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus is the third most popular driver on tour.

Breakdown of Drivers on the PGA Tour

Titleist tsr3 driver.

The Titleist TSR3 driver is the most popular pick for PGA Tour pros. It accounts for 24% of the drivers used by the Top 50 golfers on the planet. The aerodynamics, feel, acoustics, speed, and low spin deliver the optimal tee box experience.

Callaway Paradym TD Driver (8)

Eight top professional golfers swing the low spinning, high launching, neutral flying Callaway Paradym Triple Diamond driver. Chief among them is Cameron Young, who finished third on the PGA Tour in 2023 for average driving distance.

Although I appreciate the adjustable weighting design on the Paradym TD, I do not find it as forgiving as the standard Callaway Paradym. Low handicappers will appreciate the workability and acoustics of the Paradym TD. However, its reduced forgiveness is less ideal for mid and high-handicappers.

TaylorMade Stealth Plus Driver 2

The TaylorMade Stealth Plus 2 finds itself in the bags of 7 of the top 50 PGA Tour pros, including Rory McIlroy. The Northern Irishman was the longest hitter on tour in the 2022/23 season, with an average distance of 326.3 yards.

I love the low spin, elevated launch, forgiveness, feel, and acoustics of the Stealth Plus 2. Unfortunately, it’s not ideal for the average golfer. The reduced spin requires a higher swing speed to consistently get the ball airborne. This is why I prefer the easier launching Stealth Plus 2 HD driver for the average player.

5 Longest Hitters & PGA Tour Golf Clubs

Rory McIlroy produced the best driving distance average in the 2023 season, returning figures of 326.3 yards. The Northern Irishman swung a TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus to deliver low spin, forgiveness, and explosive ball speed. The remaining 4 players in the top 5 used a mix of Srixon, Callaway, and Ping drivers.

TaylorMade was the only brand to feature in the top 5 twice, with their Stealth 2 Plus and SIM 2 Max, swung by Matti Schmid.

Russel Henley delivered the best fairway in regulation returns in the 2023 season, hitting 71.74% of fairways. He employed the services of a Titleist TSi3 to keep him on the short grass, the only Titleist big stick to feature in the top 5.

Henley was trailed by Morikawa and Ryan Moore, who swing a TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus and Cobra Aerojet LS, respectively.

Most Popular Fairway Woods on the PGA Tour

pga tour golfers clubs

The Titleist TSR3 is the most popular big stick among the Top 50 PGA Tour pros, with 24% carrying the high launching, adjustable wood. The Callaway Paradym TD is the second most used fairway wood, with 5 players swinging it, while the Stealth 2 is played by 4 tour pros.

Breakdown of Fairway Woods on the PGA Tour

Callaway paradym td .

Callaway Paradym TD fairway woods are the single most used model on tour, with 7 of the top 50 carrying them. Jon Rahm, Tony Finau, and Xander Schauffele are among the golfers swinging the low-spinning, fast-face adjustable driver.

Titleist TSR3

Jordan Spieth and Cameron Young are two of the six tour pros who operated with a Titleist TSR3 this season. I find the adjustable fairway wood delivers workable flight and a mid-to-high launch to suit superior golfers seeking maximum control off the tee and on approach.

TaylorMade Stealth 2  

TaylorMade bags the final spot on the podium in the Fairway Woods category with their Stealth 2 range. I found that 4 professional golfers, including Scottie Scheffler and Tommy Fleetwood, play the clean gliding sole and high-launching Stealth 2.

Most Popular Golf Hybrids on Tour

pga tour golfers clubs

Only 17 out of the top 50 golfers on the PGA Tour carry a hybrid in their bag. Although traditionally associated with high handicappers, some tour pros desire the effortless launch and forgiveness of a hybrid on approach.

Jon Rahm, Xander Schauffele, and Matt Fitzpatrick are the only 3 players inside the top 10 that play a hybrid. Titleist dominate the category with their TSi2 hybrid, followed closely by the Callaway Apex and Apex Utility Wood.

Titleist TSi2

Cam Young, Jordan Spieth , and Russell Henley are all aboard the TSi2 wagon, favoring it for its feel, turf interaction, and towering launch. I also find the TSi2 boasts an explosive clubface, which preserves ball speed and contains spin for maximum distance.

Callaway Apex Hybrid

Keegan Bradley and Emiliano Grillo carry the fast, long, and adjustable Callaway Apex hybrid. In my experience, the hybrid produced neutral ball flight and outstanding distance for consistent long-game results. I also appreciate the adjustable hosel to alter my launch and flight settings.

Callaway Apex UW

Xander Schauffele and Sam Burns turn to the fast, forgiving, stable, and easy-launching Apex UW hybrid on approach and off the tee. In my experience, the Apex hybrid offers the speed and turf interaction of fairway woods with the launch and forgiveness of hybrids.

What Irons Do the Pros Use?

TaylorMade and Titleist is the dominant golf irons brand on the PGA Tour, covering 60% of the top tour players. Despite the popularity of TaylorMade as a brand, none of their irons are among the 3 most played sets on tour.

The Titleist T100 range is the clear winner, with 10 tour players carrying the irons in their bags. T100 irons are followed by the Callaway Apex TCB and Srixon ZX7 MKII.

Titleist t100.

The dual-cavity constructed T100 range features in the bags of 20% of the top 50 players iron setups. Jordan Spieth, Will Zalatoris, and Cam Smith play the T100 set for their feel, workability, progressive center of gravity, and clean turf interaction.

Callaway Apex TCB

The Callaway Apex TCB iron models are favored by Jon Rahm and Sam Burns for their feel, flight, control, and compact design. I find these irons highly workable and appreciate the crisp acoustics of shots out of the sweet spot.

Srixon ZX7 MKII

Five-time major winner Brooks Koepka is one of four top 50 players swinging the Srixon ZX7 MKii irons. These modern clubs generate the feel, launch, spin, and workability tour players demand on approach.

5 Most Accurate Approach Players

The Callaway Apex TCB irons featured in 2 of the top 5 accurate golfers bags in 2023. Kevin Yu and Jon Rahm played the TCB iron model and were second and fifth most accurate for the season.

Scottie Scheffler recorded the highest greens in regulation percentage, hitting 74.43% of greens with the TaylorMade P7TW irons . Collin Morikawa, another TaylorMade staffer, had the third-highest GIR return, with 70.85%. The double major winner finished the season with a 70.85% success rate on approach.

Most Popular Golf Wedges on Tour

Most Popular Golf Wedges on Tour

Titleist Vokey reigns supreme in the wedges section, accounting for 51% of the high-spinning pro tour golf clubs. The Vokey SM9 is a favorite, appearing in 18 of the top 50 players’ bags for its spin, flight, control, and abundance of sole grinds.

Cleveland and Ping brands account for the second most wedges, with 14.3% of the top golfers using their short clubs. I found the RTX ZipCore was the most popular Cleveland wedge, while the Glide 4.0 topped the standings for Ping.

Breakdown of PGA Tour Wedges

Titleist vokey sm9.

The Titleist Vokey SM9 is the single most popular wedge series on tour, appearing in the bags of 18 pros. Max Homa, Brian Harman , and Jordan Spieth are three of the top 50 pros currently relying on the high-spinning, versatile SM9 wedges.

Ping Glide 4.0

Ping Glide 4.0 wedges made it into the bags of 7 top 50 golfers this season, including the FedEx Cup Champion, Viktor Hovland . Pros appreciate the Glide 4.0 due to its clean turf interaction, enhanced friction, and consistent greenside spin.

Cleveland RTX ZipCore

Wedges are the only club where Cleveland-branded golf clubs are in a pro’s bag. The RTX ZipCore is the third single most popular wedge among the best golfers in the world. Brooks Koepka and Keegan Bradley carry it for its outstanding spin, feel, and durable grooves.

5 Best Scrambling Leaders in the World

The 2023 Open Championship winner Brian Harman thrived from the greenside this season, recording the best scrambling record . The Savannah local posted a 67.74% scrambling success rate using the Titleist Vokey SM9. Harman was followed by Jonathan Byrd on 66.35%, who also used a Titleist Vokey SM9.

The Titleist brand rounded out the top 5 with Tommy Fleetwood, who plays Vokey Wedgeworks Proto wedges. Matt Kuchar and J.J. Spaun placed third and fourth, respectively, using the Cleveland RTX ZipCore wedges.

PGA Tour: What Putters Do the Pros Use?

Titleist continued to dominate its fellow golf club brands in the short stick department, with their Scotty Cameron models accounting for 34% of the top 50 putters. Callaway Odyssey putters are played by 28% of the top 50 players and came in second.

The Callaway Odyssey Versa Jailbird was the single most popular putter found in 4 players bags. It was followed by the TaylorMade Spider X Hydroblast, used by Kurt Kitayama and Tom Hoge. Rory McIlroy and Cameron Young stroked the Titleist Scotty Cameron T-5 Proto, the third most used flatstick.

Wydnham Clarke, Rickie Fowler, and Keegan Bradley are three stars who stroked Versa Jailbird. The top players appreciate the Versa for its elevated moment of inertia (MOI), stability, and forgiveness without impacting feel and control. 

TaylorMade Spider X HydroBlast

TaylorMade tied Titleist Scotty Cameron for the second most-stroked putter on the PGA Tour. Kurt Kitayama and Tom Hoge carried the flat stick for its clean roll, premium finish, and forgiveness across the putter face.

Scotty Cameron X T5 Prototype

The X T5 Prototype is developed for tour players seeking increased forgiveness, a premium finish, and a clean roll off the clubface. Patrick Cantlay and Cameron Young both carry the X T5 Prototype.

Lowest Putting Averages PGA Tour – Putting Statistics

Taylor Montgomery recorded the lowest putting average in 2023 using a decade-old putter. The Las Vegan averaged 1.665 putts per hole and converted his birdie attempts 38.31% of the time. His chosen flatstick is a TaylorMade Ghost Spider S .

Montgomery is the only member of the five best putters to stroke a TaylorMade flat stick. Sam Ryder and Eric Cole finished second and third respectively, with Callaway Odyssey putters.

Most Popular Drivers on the PGA Champions Tour

Contrary to the PGA Tour, Titleist does not enjoy the prevalence on the Champions Tour. Only 8% of the top 30 senior golfers carry a Titleist driver, compared to 44% who operate with a Callaway big stick. Ping ranks second for driver selection, followed by Tour Edge, which did not feature at all on the PGA Tour.

The Ping G430 LST is the single most popular driver among Champions Tour pros, with 10% of the players analyzed using the model. Callaway takes the second and third places on the podium with the Paradym Triple Diamond and Epic Speed Triple Diamond.

Breakdown of Drivers on the Champions Tour

Ping g430 lst driver.

The low-spinning Ping G430 LST is a popular option for faster-swinging, longer-hitting seniors like Phil Mickelson. Miguel Jimenez and Kevin Sutherland also use the fast, forgiving, medium launching driver despite lagging Phil on the distance front.

Callaway Paradym TD Driver

The ever-consistent Stephen Ames heads the lineup of Champions Tour players swinging the Paradym TD off the tee. David Toms and K.J. Choi follow Ames example by carrying the fast, adjustable, and neutral flying Paradym TD.

Callaway Epic Speed TD Driver

Although it is 2 years older than the Paradym, Steve Stricker and Steve Alker still find use for the Epic Speed TD in their bag. The adjustable hosel, neutral flight, explosive face, and high launch help faster swing speed golfers maximize distance off the tee box.

5 Longest Hitters on the PGA Tour Champions

Robert Karlsson enjoys the best average driving distance figures in 2023, with 308.9 yards off the tee. The Swede relies on the Titleist TS3 to maximize his yardage, while the runner-up, Tim O’neal, shoots with a Titleist TSi2.

The gap between O’Neal in second and Scott McCarron in third is almost 9 yards. McCarron operated with a Tour Edge Exotics C722 driver, averaging 297.1 yards.

5 Most Accurate Drivers on the PGA Tour Champions

Jerry Kelly boasts a superior tee shot accuracy to his peers, reaching 81.49% of fairways in 2023 with his Ping G425 LST. Bernhard Langer snuck in behind Kelly for second, hitting 79.94% of fairways using an older Ping G400 driver.

The only non-Ping player I found in the top 5 for FIR was Olin Browne, who swings the Callaway Paradym Triple Diamond. Unfortunately, I struggled to find an updated version of Fred Funk and Paul Goydos’ drivers, and I decided to leave them out. If any reader has spotted the bags of these players recently, please let me know so I can update the table.

Most Popular Fairway Woods on Senior Tour

Most Popular Fairway Woods on PGA Tour Champions

Callaway and TaylorMade fairway woods are found in half of the top 30 senior players’ bags. Each brand contributes 25% to the cause. The TaylorMade SIM is the most played fairway wood, followed by the Tour Edge Exotics C722 and the Ping G430 Max.

Despite being a prominent fairway wood brand for seniors, the Epic Flash is the only Callaway fairway wood used by more than one player.

Breakdown of Fairway Woods on the Champions Tour

The TaylorMade SIM is played by 3 Champions Tour pros for its accelerated clubhead speed, low CG, and clean sole interaction. Vijay Singh , Steven Alker, and Dicky Pride all carry the TaylorMade SIM despite being older model golf clubs.

Tour Edge Exotics C722

Two Germans, Two majors in 2023, and both individuals swing Tour Edge Exotics C722 fairway woods. Bernhard Langer and Alex Cejka play the C722 range for its explosive clubface, clean turf interaction, elevated launch, and consistency.

Ping G430 Max

The Ping G430 Max features in 2 top 30 players bags. Stewart Cink and Y.E. Yang use the adjustable, fast-paced, and spin-controlled face to maximize launch and distance on approach or off the tee. 

Most Popular Hybrids on PGA Tour Champions

Most Popular Hybrids on PGA Tour Champions

Over 50% of the top 30 PGA Tour Champions players swing hybrids for their clean turf interaction, elevated MOI, and towering launch. Tour Edge and Callaway lead the way in the field, each accounting for 26.7% of hybrids.

Titleist, TaylorMade, and Ping take up the remaining spots, each contributing 13.3% to the total hybrids played on the senior’s tour.

Breakdown of Hybrids on the Champions Tour

The Tour Edge Exotics C722 is the single most popular hybrid on tour, played by 3 of the top 30 players. Bernhard Langer , Tim Petrovic, and Ken Duke employ the forgiving and adjustable hybrid to reduce turf interaction, lower spin, and send the ball consistently high off the deck.

Callaway Apex Utility Woods generate blistering speed across the surface and contain spin to encourage a powerful launch. Phil Mickelson and KJ Choi are the seniors inside the top 30 to swing the utility wood. Outside of the top 30 golfers in the world, David Duval and Jim Furyk carry the Callaway Apex UW.

The extremely high MOI, thin fast face, and spin-controlling Ping G400 is the third most popular hybrid on the Tour Champions. Steve Flesch and Kevin Sutherland are the two notable players who swing the older model Ping hybrid to boost distance on approach.

What Golf Irons Do Pros Use on the PGA Tour Champions?

Most Popular Irons on PGA Tour Champions

Srixon and Callaway are the most popular tour pro golf clubs brands for irons on the senior tour. Together, the pair contributes 41.6% of irons to the top 30 seniors. Ping follows by supplying 16.7% of irons to the top players while Tour Edge is the fourth most popular, with 12.5% of top seniors swinging their irons.

The Srixon ZX7 range is the most popular choice among Tour Champions, followed by the Tour Edge EXS Pro blade irons. Callaway X-Forged are the third most popular, along with the newer Srixon ZX7 MKii irons.

Breakdown of Most Popular Irons on Senior Tour

The tour cavity back construction on the ZX7 irons enhances the stability and forgiveness of the golf club while preserving a compact profile. I find the long irons generate rapid pace and a powerful launch, and the short irons and wedges generate maximum spin on approach.

Jerry Kelly, K.J. Choi, and Steve Flesch play the older ZX7 range. Conversely, David Toms and Ernie Els play the newer ZX7 MKii irons .

Tour Edge EXS Pro

Tour Edge EXS Pro blade irons ensure a soft feel, crisp acoustics, and workable flight on approach. Ken Duke and Tim Petrovic play the slick-looking blades, which offer limited forgiveness but enhance the control of superior golfers on approach strikes.

It is interesting to note that the most accurate tour player on approach, Bernhard Langer, plays a different model Tour Edge blade iron. The German turns to the Tour Edge Exotics CBX Forged to handle his shots from the fairway and the rough.

Callaway X-Forged

My compatriots, Retief Goosen and Alex Cejka carry the Callaway X-Forged irons in their golf bags. I find these irons generate a buttery soft feel, controlled spin, and amplified acoustics thanks to their forged body construction. They are also a pleasure to gaze upon at address, and they encourage smooth turf interaction from any lie.

5 Most Accurate Approach Players on PGA Tour Champions

The ever-consistent Bernhard Langer has the highest GIR percentage on the Tour Champions in 2023. He has hit over 78% of all greens on approach, which is why he ranks among the top 3 earners on tour. Langer is followed by Steve Stricker, who reached 77% of GIR this season.

Most Popular Wedges on PGA Tour Champions

Most Popular Wedges on PGA Tour Champions

It is no surprise to see Titleist holding the largest share of wedges on the Tour Champions, with their Vokey range. Unlike the PGA Tour, it is the older version Vokey SM8, which is preferred by players like Steve Stricker and Steve Flesch. I discovered that 33.3% of the top 30 seniors are swinging a Titleist Vokey wedge.

Cleveland is responsible for the second most popular brand of wedges, with the RTX ZipCore a favorite among the veterans. Callaway contributes the third highest count of wedges to senior tour professional golfers.

Breakdown of Wedges on the PGA Champions Tour

Titleist vokey sm8 .

Titleist Vokey SM8 wedges are played by 13% of top Tour Champions players. The wedges are preferred for their master craftsmanship, controlled flight, soft feel, and exceptional spin to maximize control. The 3 Steves fly the Vokey SM8 flag high on the Champions Tour, with Alker , Stricker, and Flesch all carrying them.

Miguel Angel Jimenez , Stewart Cink, and Kevin Sutherland employ the Glide 4.0 wedges for their turf interaction, spin, and feel. Despite the elevated spin rate, the wedge launches low, feels soft, and is crafted in 4 grind options to excel from every lie.

David Toms, Darren Clarke , and Ernie Els ply their greenside trade with the soft-feeling, low-launching, and high-spinning Cleveland RTX ZipCore range. In my experience, these wedges boast durable, sharp grooves that encourage maximum shot-stopping power on pitches, flops, and short approach shots.

5 Best Scrambling PGA Tour Champions Leaders

The best senior golfer in the world also has the highest scrambling success rate on the Tour Champions this year. Steve Stricker has successfully gotten up and down from the greenside 71.74% of the time, 2% more than second-placed Jerry Kelly has produced.

Stricker is a Titleist loyalist in the wedge department, operating with an SM8 pitching wedge, SM7 sand wedge, and SM4 lob wedge. Third place Steven Alker also players Vokey SM8 wedges, while Jerry Kelly generates spin with the Cleveland RTX 3 and 4 golf clubs.

PGA Tour Champions : What Putters Do the Pros Use ?

Most Popular Putters on PGA Tour Champions showing a graph of the most popular putter on senior tour

Callaway Odyssey is the largest single proprietor of putters to the top 30 ranked seniors. This golf equipment brand accounts for over 52% of the top players’ putters, with the White Hot 2 Ball and White Hot OG 7 the most played flat sticks.

Titleist supplies the second most putters to top veteran golfers, with their Scotty Cameron range, while Ping places third. Several senior golfers play putters from boutique manufacturers like AR Golf, Sacks Parrente, and Bloodline Golf.

Breakdown of Most Popular Putters on the Senior Tour

Callaway odyssey white hot og 2 ball.

The famed Odyssey White Hot OG 2 Ball putter design is a hit with the senior golfers for its alignment aid, stability, and clean roll. Eight golfers stroke the 2 Ball construction, including Padraig Harrington, Bernhard Langer, and Steve Flesch .

While assessing putting stats, I noticed that two low putting averages were achieved with an Odyssey putter. However, none of the players were using an Odyssey 2 Ball. Steve Stricker, the best putter on tour this season, achieved the feat using a bladed White Hot No.2 flatstick. Fifth place, Steven Alker employed an Odyssey White Hot OG Rossie.

Callaway White Hot OG Odyssey Seven

Another premium, soft-feeling putter is the Callaway Odyssey Seven. The winged back mallet putter optimizes stability and friction, encouraging enhanced topspin on all putts. Alex Cejka and K.J. Choi rely on the Odyssey Seven to get them around the green.

Titleist Scotty Cameron Go Lo S1

The Titleist Scotty Cameron Go Lo S1 Proto combines forgiveness, premium looks, and a soft feel. I found the milled putter face increases friction and topspin to optimize roll and distance control. David Toms is the highest-profile player in the top 30, stroking the Go Lo S1.

5 Lowest Putting Averages on PGA Tour Champions

I thought it was interesting that no two players in the top 5 used the same putter to achieve their low putting averages . Top-ranked Steve Stricker added an Odyssey White Hot No.2 to the bag, while Miguel Angel Jimenez putts with a Ping D572C.

Brett Quigley and Y.E. Yang putted with Scotty Cameron flat sticks, but different models. Quigley struck the 009 Masterful Tourtype SSS, while Yang handled the GSS Tour.

How Does the Set Up Change from PGA Tour to PGA Tour Champions?

Collage of photos of golf clubs that the pros use

I noticed three predominant differences between the setup of PGA and Champions Tour pro golf clubs. Driver lofts, hybrids, and driving irons were the key differences in the bag structure. I also discovered that seniors often add older model clubs to their golf bags.

PGA Tour Driver Lofts

While comparing the drivers of Tour Champions to PGA Tour players, I noticed that the lofts differed. On average, senior golfers prefer higher lofted drivers set at 10.5°, compared to the PGA Tour, where the lower lofted 9° profile is popular.

There are exceptions to the rule, like Vijay Singh and Phil Mickelson, who swing a 7.5° driver. Miguel Angel Jimenez and Steven Alker also unleash strong lofted 9° drivers for a lower launching golf ball.

Driving Iron vs Hybrid : Common Club Set Up

Only 34% of the top 50 PGA Tour pros carry a hybrid in their bag, with driving irons still being preferred by many of the game’s best. However, 53% of Tour Champions golfers play a hybrid for the elevated launch, clean turf interaction, and forgiveness.

I discovered that PGA Tour pros typically prefer the workability and controlled flight of a utility iron over a hybrid. Professional golfers may change their bags at any time to suit the conditions of a specific course. 

For example, a lower launching driver iron is ideal for windy days and dry courses. Conversely, the high-launching soft landing hybrid suits target golf courses that demand precise distance control on approach.

Best Golfers in the World Using Older Clubs on Tour

My research revealed that Champions Tour pros enjoy carrying older model clubs that they are comfortable swinging. Until recently, Bernhard Langer used Adams Idea Pro hybrids released 16 years ago. Steve Stricker also utilizes a 9-year-old Titleist 915F fairway wood.

Like anything, there are exceptions to the rules. The best putter on the PGA Tour this season, Taylor Montgomery, uses a 10-year-old Taylormade Ghost Spider S. So, having the latest golf equipment may not always be the answer for gaining more accuracy, even for the best players.

Do Most PGA Tour Players Use Lead Tape?

what golf clubs do the pros use?  Showing Sutherland golfer on the Champions Tour and the lead tape he uses on his Ping golf clubs.

Yes, PGA Tour players do use lead tape on different clubs to achieve optimal MOI and CG placement. PGA Tour professional golfer, Akshay Bhatia explains that lead tape boosts the MOI of his driver and fairway woods for greater long-game forgiveness.

He also applies lead tape to his wedges to raise the CG level. This promotes a lower launch, consistent contact, friction, and spin. Finally, he uses lead tape on his putter to help it sit square at address and resist twisting at impact.

Final Thoughts: What Golf Clubs Do the Pros Use?

After reviewing what clubs do pros use, it is clear that Titleist is the dominant brand on the PGA Tour. More top 50 PGA Tour players use their drivers, irons, wedges, and putters than any other brand. I found that 24% of the top 50 players swing the Titleist TSR3 driver .

The TSR3 fairway wood was another favorite with the pros, along with the Titleist T100 irons. Titleist Scotty Cameron putters ruled the roost on the PGA Tour, and the Callaway Odyssey brand leads the way with the seniors.

Callaway and Ping are the preferred metal wood brands on the Tour Champions, while the Srixon ZX7 set are the most popular irons. Finally, the Titleist Vokey wedges are king on both tours. Although PGA Tour pros prefer the SM9 while older pros prefer the SM8.

7 Most Popular Irons On The PGA Tour (2023 Update)

Nowadays, the scrutiny on what golf irons the pros are using is greater than ever, and club manufacturers are more aware of this perception by the golf playing and golf watching audiences around the world. So, what are the most popular irons on the PGA Tour?

The 7 most popular irons on the PGA Tour are :

While drivers often take center stage, the real focus is on the irons that the pros use, as those constitute a larger percentage of shots played and hit during tournaments than those of drivers, but remember, a putter is the club used the most.

Golf Irons. Most Popular Irons On The PGA Tour

And to find out the most popular irons on the PGA Tour, keep reading!

PGA Tour Players Mix And Match Their Irons

Many PGA Tour players don’t have complete sets of one brand of irons but mix and match between brands and clubs based on what irons they prefer. So shorter irons could be one brand and longer irons another.

You may also find that some players have a complete set of irons from 4-PW and then have a different brand for a three iron or driving iron. The stats below are based on the popularity of the iron brands found in the bags of tour pros, and you may find some players using two different iron brands.

With this discussion, we are talking about irons only and not wedges, as that would be a separate discussion on its own.

Most Popular Irons On The PGA Tour

The most popular irons on the PGA Tour are Titleist, Callaway, Ping, TaylorMade, Srixon, Mizuno, and PXG. These are the most common irons found in the bags of PGA pros currently on tour, and the differences between the most popular and the least popular are significant.

So, let’s start with the least popular.

#7 – PXG Irons

PXG is a brand making slow but steady inroads into the PGA Tour player’s choice of clubs, and five top-ranked PGA Tour pros use PXG irons in their bag. Players include Jason Kokrak, Luke List, Joel Dahmen, James Hahn, and Zach Johnson.

PXG ranks higher in popularity than Cobra or Wilson on tour and some newer brands like Miura, Honma, or Bridgestone.

Which PXG Irons Do These PGA Tour Pros Use?

  • Luke List and James Hahn play PXG 0311 T  Gen 4 irons.
  • Jason Kokrak uses the PXG 0311 T Gen 4 irons.
  • Joel Dahmen uses the PXG 0211 ST irons.
  • Zach Johnson plays the PXG 0311 T Gen 1.

Who Is PXG Golf?

PXG (Parsons Extreme Golf) was founded in 2014 by Bob Parsons, most well known as the founder of Go-Daddy. His vision was to make “the sexiest, most forgiving golf clubs that launch higher, go farther, feel softer, and have a sweet spot the size of Texas!”

PXG currently holds over 200 patents and focuses on providing clubs that look like blades but “feel like butter.” With the backing of Dr. Parsons and limitless resources, they began to research the various alloys and materials to produce the world’s finest golf clubs.

Premium Magnetic Leather Iron and Wedge Golf Club Head Covers

Even though PXG irons do come at a price, the design of their 0311 sets of irons is turning heads and getting great reviews from players and golf influencers alike.

Using a hollow construction, as many of the new irons are, and filling it with a thermoplastic-elastomer filling and tungsten weights on the perimeter provides forgiveness and great speed and sound off the clubface.

Whether for high/medium handicappers or more adept players, PXG 0311 irons are certainly delivering on the Parsons promise.

You can check out a wide selection of PXG irons at Global Golf. They also have a ‘used’ selection of irons from owners who trade in their used clubs when upgrading. You can pick up some good deals here if you have a lower budget or like to change your clubs regularly.

#6 – Mizuno Irons

Mizuno Pro 221 Irons

Coming in at no.6 is a well-known and long-standing brand originating in Japan. It arguably produces some of the finest irons for the PGA Tour and amateur golfers. Mizuno ranks slightly higher in popularity than PXG, but there is a big gap between Mizuno and the no.5 ranked irons, Srixon.

Currently, seven players on the PGA Tour use Mizuno irons: Luke Donald, Paul Casey, Matt Jones, Lucas Glover, Jazz Janewattanond, Keith Mitchell, and Cameron Smith.


Which Mizuno Irons Do These PGA Tour Players Use?

Looking in the bag, you will find a mix of sets from the JPX 919 irons to the Pro Fli Hi and MP 5 and Pro 221 and Pro 225 irons. The players in this list use the following irons:

#5 – Srixon Irons

Japanese brand Srixon is a subsidiary of Sumitomo Rubber company that owns Dunlop Sport. Srixon holds more patents for golf balls than any other brand in the market; while not as popular as the Pro V1, Srixon balls are well respected and played by quite a few pros. I am a regular Srixon ball user myself.

Twelve players on the PGA Tour are currently using Srixon irons: Shane Lowry, Sepp Straka, Scotty Scheffler, Ryan Palmer, Marcus Armitage, Martin Laird, Hideki Matsuyama, Keegan Bradley, Harold Varner III, Graeme MacDowell, JJ Spaun, and Brooks Koepka.

Which Srixon Irons Do These PGA Tour Players Use?

Looking through the bags of these players, you will find a mix of irons, with the ZX 7 irons being the most popular in this group. There are also the ZX 5 irons, the Z Forged, Z 785, and Z U65 irons.

Except for Martin Laird, Ryan Palmer, Hideki Matsuyama, and Graeme MacDowell, all the other players use the ZX 7 and ZX 5 irons. Martin Laird and Ryan Palmer use the Z 785’s, MacDowell also uses the Z 785’s and the Z 745, Matsuyama uses the Srixon Z-Forged irons, and Spaun uses the Z U65 irons.

If you want to check out the best Srixon irons that are popular right now, you can find them at Global Golf. You can also check out the current pricing of Srixon irons over on Amazon.


#4 – TaylorMade Irons

As one of the golfing world’s most well-known and iconic brands, TaylorMade scooped possibly the biggest star ever when Tiger Woods signed to them and started to use their P7TW irons after Nike announced they would no longer be making clubs.

TaylorMade also produces some high-quality golf balls and while they are not in the same popularity league as the Pro V1 – let’s face it, which golf ball is – some of the best use their irons in the game.

With 18 players on the PGA using TaylorMade, they are far ahead of Srixon in the popularity ratings. Some of the big names on tour using TaylorMade irons include the likes of Collin Morikawa, Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Daniel Berger, Justin Rose, Martin Kaymer, Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Sergio Garcia, and Tommy Fleetwood.

TaylorMade P790 Irons

Which TaylorMade Irons Do These PGA Tour Players Use?

TaylorMade has a variety of irons that feature PGA players’ bags. A popular one is the P7TW irons found in the bags of players like Tiger Woods, Tommy Fleetwood, Martin Kaymer, Scotty Scheffler, and Lucas Herbert.

You can read more about Tiger’s irons in this article; What Irons Does Tiger Woods Use ?

The other popular irons from TaylorMade are the P7MC (available on Amazon), and those can be found in the bags of players like Justin Rose, Mathew Wolf, and Robert McIntyre. The P770 irons (also on Amazon) have a good following with PGA Tour players, and names like Rory McIlroy, Collin Morikawa, and Harry Higgs feature these irons in their bags.

I do like the P770s, but maybe I’m a little biased as my eldest son uses these clubs. Like me, he plays left-handed and seems well suited to them.

TaylorMade P770 Irons

Sergio Garcia and Dustin Johnson feature the P730 irons, as Collin Morikawa and the P790 irons are used by Martin Kaymer, Lucas Herbert, and Jason Day. Remember that within the TaylorMade stable, there are a variety of irons, and pros that use TM often pull clubs from different model sets to complete their own.


#3 – Ping Irons

Ping’s influence on the game of golf is impressive at both the amateur and pro levels; they arguably provided golf’s greatest entertainer, Seve Ballesteros, with his clubs and the innovation of the world’s first game improvement irons some five decades ago.

The subsequent interest of professional players in the cavity back irons, Ping is a global leader in golf clubs, and it shows on the PGA Tour.

As the third most popular iron on tour, Ping features some very high-profile players, and 19 tour players feature this brand.

Only marginally ahead of TaylorMade, players that use Ping irons include the likes of Bubba Watson, Louis Oosthuizen, Corey Conners, Harris English, Joaquin Niemann, Mackenzie Hughes, Stewart Cink, Lee Westwood, Tony Finau, Tyrell Hatton, and Viktor Hovland.

What Ping Irons Do These PGA Tour Pros Use?

The Ping i210 irons are the most popular amongst this playing group, with players like Viktor Hovland, Lee Westwood, Tyrell Hatton, Stewart Cink, Mackenzie Hughes, Sebastion Munoz, Sahith Teegala, and Matt Fitzpatrick all having the i210 in their bags.

The Ping iBlades are used by Corey Conners, Guillermo Mita Perreira, Joaquin Niemann, and Victor Perez. The Ping Blueprint irons are used by Louis Oosthuizen, Tony Finau, Seamus Power, and Harris English.

Other Ping irons used are the Ping S55 played by Bubba Watson and Carlos Ortiz, as well as the i500 (Makenzie Hughes), G 410 Crossover (Harris English), and the i59 (Sahith Teegala).


#2 – Callaway Irons

Callaway irons are the second most popular irons used on the PGA Tour behind Titleist – and there is a big difference between the number of players using Callaway and Titleist. In contrast, the numbers 3, 4, and 5 most popular irons are closer to the number 2 spot than the no. 2 is to the no. 1 most popular iron on the PGA Tour.

Between Callaway and Ping, there is only a difference of 5 players that use Callaway, so those gaps are pretty close.

Callaway is another massive global brand. Of the 24 PGA Tour players that use their irons, many South African players feature, such as Branden Grace, Christiaan Bezuidenhout, Dylan Frittelli, Erik Van Rooyen, and prominent international stars.

Phil Mickelson, Alex Noren, Daniel Berger, Danny Willett, Henrik Stenson, Francesco Molinari, Justin Rose, John Rahm, Kevin Na, Kevin Kisner, Sam Burns, Xander Schauffle, Siwoo Kim, and Marc Leishman all use Callaway irons.

You know you are doing something right when you can boast this illustrious list of players using your irons!

What Callaway Irons Do These Pro Players Use?

The two most popular iron sets are the Callaway Apex series and X Forged irons, while a few players on tour use the Rogue and Legacy irons.

With the Apex series, the MB, TCB, and Pro feature prominently, with the X Forged series irons coming in a close second. Let’s look at which PGA players use these irons.

  • Callaway Apex TCB – John Rahm, Marc Leishman, Matt Wallace, Sam Burns, Xander Schauffle, Franceso Molinari, Danny Lee, and Branden Grace.
  • Callaway Apex MB – Phil Mickelson, Talor Gooch, Matt Wallace, Danny Lee, Erik Van Rooyen.
  • Callaway Pro and Pro UT – Jazz Jannewattanond, Alex Noren, Kevin Na, Kevin Kisner, and Siwoo Kim.
  • Callaway X Forged UT/CB – Phil Mickelson, Talor Gooch, Maverick McNealy, Justin Rose, Dylan Frittelli, Erik Van Rooyen , Danny Willet and Christiaan Bezuidenhout.

My youngest son has recently ignited his love of the game and purchased a set of Callaway clubs. Although not used by the PGA players mentioned above, he went for the Callaway Warbirds, which I think are just perfect for him, having not played for a while.

Callaway Warbird Irons

#1 – Titleist Irons

Titleist has the same dominance with their irons on tour as they do with the Pro V1 ball, which is a testament to their quality and consistency in performance. Compared to the no. 2 spot held by Callaway, Titleist have more than 70% more players using their clubs than Callaway.

Regarding the popularity of irons, it’s a race for second place as Titleist has the first place well and truly sewn up, with 33 PGA Tour players favoring them. You can view Titleist irons on Amazon and check prices or jump to the huge selection at Global Golf.

Their list of players using their irons is incredibly impressive. It features top players like Adam Scott, Cameron Smith, Chris Kirk, Garrick Higgo, Ian Poulter, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Lucas Glover, Patrick Cantlay, Max Homa, Tom Hoge, and Will Zalatoris.

Titleist T100 Irons

What Titleist Irons Do These PGA Tour Players Use?

Because Titleist has such a massive stable of clubs available, the mix of irons used by PGA players is quite varied.

The T100 and T200 are popular, along with the 620 CB and MB series. Then, the U500 and 510 and the 718AP2 and T MB irons feature in the bags of the top players. 

  • Titleist T100 and T200 – Cameron Smith, Charles Howell III, Charley Hoffman, Garrick Higgo, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Will Zalatoris.
  • Titleist 620 CB/ MB Series – Antoine Rozner, Billy Horschel , Brandt Wiesberger, Brian Harman , Cameron Davis, Cameron Young, Max Homa, Webb Simpson and Tom Hoge.
  • Titleist 718 AP2/MB/CB/T MB -Brendon Todd, Chris Kirk, Ian Poulter, JT Poston, Patrick Cantlay.
  • Titleist U 500 – Antoine Rozner, Berndt Wiesberger, Carlos Ortiz, JT Poston, Lucas Glover and Brian Harman.

Let’s Wrap This Up!

Titleist leads the race by some margin for the most popular irons on the PGA Tour, with some of the biggest names in the game using their irons with great success. Now that you know which players use which brand, be sure to keep an eye out for them on TV.

It will be interesting to see if and how these numbers change over the coming years as manufacturers jostle to move up the popularity rankings, but for now, the top four are well ahead of the chasing pack.

2024 Masters odds, field: Surprising PGA picks, predictions from advanced golf model that's nailed 10 majors

Sportsline's proven model simulated the masters 2024 10,000 times and revealed its pga golf picks for augusta national.


There have been eight longshots over the last two decades who have won the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club. The most recent longshot winner was Hideki Matsuyama, who donned a green jacket in 2021 at 60-1. In fact, there was a three year span in which a long shot won at Augusta National Golf Course: Zach Johnson in 2007 at 125-1, Trevor Immelman in 2008 at 150-1 and Angel Cabrera in 2009 at 125-1. Tiger Woods is a massive longshot in the 2024 Masters field at 160-1 despite having five wins at Augusta and could be among the 2024 Masters contenders to win it all.

Scottie Scheffler is the Masters 2024 favorite at 5-1 in the 2024 Masters odds, followed by Rory McIlroy at 10-1. Before locking in any 2024 Masters picks of your own, be sure to see the 2024 Masters golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine .

SportsLine's proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June 2020. In fact, the model is up nearly $9,500 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament. McClure's model predicted Scottie Scheffler would finish on top of the leaderboard at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players Championship this season. McClure also included Hideki Matsuyama in his best bets to win the 2024 Genesis Invitational. That bet hit at +9000, and for the entire tournament, McClure's best bets returned nearly $1,000. The model also predicted Jon Rahm would be victorious at the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions and The American Express. At the 2023 Masters, the model was all over Rahm's second career major victory heading into the weekend. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the third round, but the model still projected him as the winner. It was the second straight Masters win for the model, which also nailed Scheffler winning in 2022. In addition, McClure's best bets included Nick Taylor (70-1) winning the 2023 RBC Canadian Open, Jason Day (17-1) winning outright at the 2023 AT&T Byron Nelson, and Rickie Fowler (14-1) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic. This same model has also nailed a whopping 10 majors entering the weekend. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.

Now that the Masters 2024 field is taking shape, SportsLine simulated the tournament 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.

Top 2024 Masters predictions 

One major surprise the model is calling for at the 2024 Masters: Rory McIlroy, a four-time major champion and one of the co-favorites, fails to complete the career grand slam and barely cracks the top five at Augusta National. The world's No. 2-ranked golfer is off to a rough start in 2024, with his highest finish through his first five starts being 19th at the Players Championship.

Putting was an issue for McIlroy at the start of the season, as he previously ranked 129th in that area (-0.246). While he has improved to 83rd on the PGA Tour (0.036) and his total shots gained (0.610) is 40th, he is still 123rd in shots gained approaching the green (-0.176). While there appears to be small improvements in his game, his finishes this season are why the model is low on him.

Another surprise: Xander Schauffele, a 24-1 longshot, makes a strong run at the title. He has a much better chance to win it all than his odds imply, so he's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. The Southern California native has six top-10 finishes in eight starts this season, including a runner-up finish at the Players Championship in which he landed just one stroke behind the winner.

Schauffele can attribute that success to how well he is driving the ball, ranking second on the Tour in total strokes gained (1.934) and sixth in strokes gained off the tee. (0.744). This will help him at Augusta National, where he finished second in 2019 and third last year. His previous success and current form make Schauffele a golfer you should be high on at the 2024 Masters Tournament, according to the model.  See who else to pick here .

How to make 2024 Masters picks

The model is also targeting six other golfers with odds of 20-1 or longer to make a strong run at the green jacket. Anyone who backs these longshots could hit it big. You can only see the model's picks here .

Who will win the 2024 Masters, and which longshots will stun the golfing world? Check out the Masters 2024 odds below and then visit SportsLine to see the projected Masters leaderboard, all from the model that's nailed 10 golf majors, including last year's Masters and Open Championship .

HOUSTON (AP) — Stephan Jaeger couldn’t have dreamed up a better scenario for his first PGA Tour victory. He played the final 36 holes with the best player in the world, and he won the Houston Open on Sunday to earn his first trip to the Masters.

“It feels amazing,” Jaeger said.

Scottie Scheffler couldn’t imagine a tougher way for his March winning streak to end — a clutch shot to 5 feet on the final hole, and a birdie putt he thought was good until he looked up and realized it wasn’t.

“I hit two or three really good shots into 18 to give myself a chance and I feel like I made the putt and I looked up and it was breaking off,” Scheffler said. “So a bit disappointing, but Stephan played great this week and he’s a deserving champion.”

Jaeger closed with nine straight pars, and that was just enough for a 3-under 67 to finally win in his 135th attempt on the PGA Tour.

Jaeger was preparing for a playoff after narrowly missing a 20-foot birdie putt that would have assured the victory. But then Scheffler, who gave himself three good looks down the stretch, saw his putt burn the left edge of the cup.

“I expected him to make it, and I’m not mad at him for missing it,” Jaeger said.

Scheffler was trying to become the first player in seven years to win three straight starts on the PGA Tour, and he was right there with a chance. Two shots behind, he had a 20-foot eagle putt on the par-5 16th and settled for birdie. He missed from 12 feet for birdie on the 17th, and stayed alive when Jaeger missed from 7 feet on the reachable par-4 17th.

His last chance was from 5 feet.

“It would be one thing if I pulled it or something like that,” Scheffler said. “I just misread it. I don’t know why I misread it, it’s part of the game. Maybe I could have hit it with some more speed, I felt like I hit a nice putt kind of how I wanted to, just didn’t go.”

Jaeger, a 34-year-old German who came to high school in Tennessee when he was 16, earned his first trip to the Masters with the victory. He also is in the remaining four $20 million signature events this season.

Alejandro Tosti had a chance to become the fourth PGA Tour rookie to win this early in the year. He was tied for the lead until chipping too strong on the 18th and missing the 18-foot par putt for a 68.

There was a five-way tie for the lead at the start — the largest on tour since 2009 — and eight players had at least a share of the lead at some point during the round.

Jaeger was always in the mix, taking the lead with an 8-foot birdie putt on the par-3 ninth hole at Memorial Park. That was his last birdie of the day, and no one could beat him.

“I was just tried to stay within myself,” Jaeger said. “Birdies eluded me on the back nine. But this golf course plays difficult, especially when you’re around the lead. I’m just super happy.”

Thomas Detry, David Skinns and Taylor Moore all made mistakes down the stretch.

Scheffler was one shot behind when he missed the green on the par-3 15th and failed to save par on an 8-foot putt, falling two shots behind with three to play. He got one back with his birdie on the downwind 16th, where Jaeger had to lay up and settle for par.

Scheffler and Jaeger both missed good birdie chances on the 17th, and Scheffler had one last chance on the 18th.

Jaeger finished at 12-under 268 and cracks the top 50 in the world ranking for the first time.

“I couldn’t have dreamed up a better week,” Jaeger said. “Playing Scottie last couple days, he’s been on a tear, so to kind of slay the dragon a little bit this week was amazing. He’s such a good dude, such a good player, I was just happy to play with him a couple days.”

Defending champion Tony Finau closed with two straight birdies for a 66 and joined Scheffler, Tosti, Detry and Moore in a tie for second.

This was the final week for players to move into the top 50 and earn a Masters invitation, and no one from outside the top 50 — Mackenzie Hughes and Tom Hoge had the best chances — did well enough to earn a spot.

Byeong Hun An is the only player from the top 50 added to the field for the Masters, which now includes Jaeger.

Power Rankings: Valero Texas Open

Power Rankings

Change Text Size

No matter which variation of the Texas two-step that you prefer, you still need somewhere to go when you move. In this version presented by the PGA TOUR, the shift is 175 miles west of Houston to this week’s Valero Texas Open in San Antonio.

For the explanation of why the field is larger than usual, how TPC San Antonio’s Oaks Course is set up and more, continue reading below.

The Valspar Championship ended up hosting 152, while the Texas Children’s Houston Open went off with 144. The modification was made to increase playing time for the category that reorders for the first time at the conclusion of the Valero.

Included in the customary collection of perks reserved for the winner is the last spot in the first major of the season. That, of course, is the Masters next week. Currently, 30 qualifiers are in the field at TPC San Antonio, including Corey Conners, who is defending his second title at Valero.

Quite simply, Conners was built for TPC San Antonio, and vice versa. The stock par 72 is a premium, ball-striker’s layout. Because it tips at 7,438 yards, distance off the tee is a valuable bonus. Last year’s field averaged 72.092, so much adjacent to the bull’s-eye for the setup.

Accuracy is imperative given that the first layer of rough is 2.5 inches tall. Beyond that is the kind of four-inch hay that weekend warriors without forecaddies, cameras and a crowd would lament after driving into it, “I hope I can find it.”

As usual, the entire course is overseeded and the combination Bermuda-Poa greens are governed to 11½ feet on the Stimpmeter. Speed on the putting surfaces needs to be slower than average due to the winds of the Texas Hill Country.

After a teaser of a beautifully calm opening round, the breezes will freshen on Friday and Saturday. Sunday’s forecast is a mixed bag that includes quieter wind and the strongest threat for rain during any round. Daytime temperatures should rise into the 70s throughout.

Rory mcilroy doesn’t see pga tour-liv golf divide as sustainable: ‘need to be a correction’.

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.

Rory Mcllroy expressed concern for the health of the game of golf as the split between the PGA Tour and the Saudi-backed LIV Golf continued. 

In an interview with Golf Week, Mcllroy viewed the situation as unsustainable and described things as not benefiting anyone while explaining how unfortunate it is that the best golfers play on separate tours for a good portion of the year. 

“There needs to be a correction. I think what’s happening is not sustainable right now, so something needs to happen to try to bring it all back together so we can all move forward so we don’t have this division that’s sort of ongoing,” McIlroy told the outlet, per Reuters . “They keep going down those different paths and I just don’t see how that benefits anyone in the long run. … I think [it’s] a shame for the overall game of golf.”

Rory Mcllroy doesn't think golf can keep going the way it is with the deep divide between LIV Golf and the PGA Tour.

Merger talks between the PGA Tour and LIV Golf have been ongoing, but there have been little in any substantive updates from either side regarding those plans. 

The PGA Tour did secure a $3 billion investment deal with Strategic Sports Group (SSG), a consortium of U.S sports team owners, which includes Mets owner Steve Cohen, in January. 

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan told reporters last month that the PGA Tour would be willing to move forward with just SSG if the LIV deal isn’t able to be figured out. 

And any hope of getting something secured between the two sides still seems far off to Mcllroy. 

​​”We’re probably still quite a long ways from it, but I would hope that in the future that we can get there, unify the game and get the best players back together again,” he said. 

Former Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley didn’t sound too optimistic about a merger deal getting done quickly either, he said during an interview on RTE Radio 1. 

LIV Golf CEO and Commissioner Greg Norman

“Don’t hold your breath,” he said during the interview, according to The Daily Mirror . “I think both parties are still wide away from each other in terms of where the common ground is.”
