Jordan Spieth WITB



When you think of Jordan Spieth (Titleist Pro V1x), what immediately comes to mind?

His immediate rise on the PGA Tour and his wins in the Masters and U.S. Open in 2015 when he was in his early 20s and on top of the golf world?

His victory in the 2017 Open Championship with one of the craziest shots in golf history on the 13th hole?

How he went almost four years and 82 events without winning a tournament before snapping the streak by winning in his native Texas in the 2021 Valero Texas Open?

His ability to make masterful bunker shots?

His personality and the way he verbally berates himself after making bad shots?

How he made Under Armour a major manufacturer of not only golf apparel, but sports apparel in general?

It’s probably any and all of the above. He is never dull, at least on the course. Off of it he’s not exactly the most exciting figure as evidenced on the first episode of Season 1 of Netflix’s Full Swing. His relationship with best bud Justin Thomas (Titleist Pro V1x) was not exactly scintillating, but let’s not

quibble about that. He’s given golf fans worldwide plenty of excitement over the years.

I won a golf pool when he won the Masters because I was the only one who picked him on my team of four players. I cashed nicely, so he gets a free pass from me and lots of love.

So here’s a look at what he has in his bag.

DRIVER: TSR2 (10 degrees @9.25).

SHAFT: Fujikura Ventus Ventus Black 6 X).

He switched from TSi3 midway in 2023 season. Sam Tremlett of Golf Monthly talked to Titleist Tour fitter J.J. Van Wezenbeeck, who said: “Jordan looked at the TSi2 and didn’t like the shape, then he looked at TSR2 and really liked the shape. The shaping change has opened something that was a good performance product for him in the past, and now the performance and looks kind of marry those two things together for him. It has a little more traditional shaping. Stephanie Luttrell and the R&D team really focused a lot of energy on some of the toe shape and make it not look quite as flat, quite as pointed, and so the TSR2 has really nice movement in shape. She spent a lot of time with her team getting

that shape really good. And in the heel section it’s slightly more pear shaped; it’s not quite as uniform in shape. It gives it a lot more traditional look in a high MOI (moment of inertia) product. The swing hard and hit a high cut method is really popular among players, where you’re just trying to get a certain launch and spin to match one speed. Jordan has a fairway finder, he has a mid-flight cut, he has a high cutter, then he has a mid-draw and a high draw. So you have to marry those spin and launch characteristics across a bunch of windows. It’s a fun challenge.”

3-WOOD: Titleist TSR3 (15 degrees).

SHAFT: Mitsubishi Tensei AV Raw Blue 75 TX.

Sportskeeda noted the TSR3 is the perfect club to bridge the distance gap between Spieth’s driver and hybrid yardages. GOLF.com writer James Colgan noted Spieth has turned around his game with his 3-wood after struggling for several years to find the center of the clubface and a consistent ball flight. Colgan noted Spieth had a breakthrough moment in 2021 in the second round of the CJ Cup on the 604-yard sixth hole. His tee shot travelled 313 yards in the fairway, 286 yards from the flag. His second shot cleared the water and bunkers and landed 15 feet from the hole. He drained the putt for an eagle.

Spieth told his caddie, Michael Geller, “It was a cool shot kind of for me personally because that’s the one, especially with a 3-wood into the wind, that I really struggled with.”

HYBRID: Titleist TSi2 (21 degrees).

SHAFT: Graphite Design Tour AD Hybrid IZ 95 X.

Sportskeeda noted Spieth replaced his 2018 Titleist 818 H2 hybrid with the 2021 TSi2 hybrid, and said he prefers an older model because he’s more comfortable with the looks, feel and performance compared to the newer models.

IRONS: Titleist 2021 T200 (2 iron, Graphite Design Tour AD DI 95 X shaft); Titleist 2021 T100 (4-9, True Temper Project X 6.5 shafts). Sportskeeda noted Spieth takes the 2 iron in and out of his bag with the T100 as his stock. It noted he prefers the look of a blade iron with the forgiveness of a club with a cavity back.

Speaking to GolfWRX in 2021, Spieth said: “I don’t understand why you’d play any other iron, to be honest. I joke around, ‘I’m not good enough to play the blades,’ but in reality I think we’re just being smarter. I think we’re just like, ‘Oh, we can actually hit every shot that a blade can hit.’ But that chance that we mishit them, it could be the difference in a tournament.” WEDGES: Titleist Vokey Design SM10 (46-10F @47, 52-08F @51.5), 56-10S @ 55.5), 60-04T @60.5).

SHAFTS: Project X 125 6.5 (46), Project X 120 6.0 (52-60).

GOLF.com noted the 60-degree model is a prototype which is actually a T-Grind and has been designed to keep the leading edge low to the ground which makes it ideal for hitting wedge shots from tight lies. On a video he did for Dick’s Sporting Goods about wedge shots, Spieth said: “The most important thing when hitting wedge shots is to get a very stable base, have as little movement throughout your body as possible. I like to keep my weight a little bit more forward than I would on a full swing. As I set the club down, the ball position is a little bit further back and my weight is a little bit more forward and then I just try to simplify things. I’m taking it back and through. I’m not trying to move my body, lift it up. I’m not trying to hit too far down. I’m just allowing the club to do the work through the turf.”

PUTTER: Scotty Cameron Circle T 009 prototype.

GRIP: SuperStroke Zenergy Flatso 1.0.

Spieth has had the same putter in the bag since 2009. In an interview with Inside the Circle T’s Drew Page four years ago, Spieth explained his history with it going back to when he was 12 years old.

“I really wanted a Scotty Cameron and I was really just kind of starting to pick up the game seriously as my number one sport and started to practise every day and showed results in tournaments, so my dad decided we should get out of some of the junior sets and get some real stuff. I bought a used Cameron that cost $125 and it felt great. I’m not a very soft putter guy. I’m more of a solid, striking feel. To this day, this is the most solid-feeling putter I’ve ever hit. I probably used it for a couple years before I was done with it. It was pretty beaten up. From there I moved into a couple other different versions. I’ve been obsessed with Scotty Cameron since Tiger Woods (Bridgestone Tour B X) was using his Newport 2 GSS and Adam Scott (Titleist Pro V1) had a 009 and Geoff Ogilvie (Titleist Pro V1x) was putting with a 009. Those were my three favorite players. I wanted to be open with what would be the best for me. We didn’t try a GSS for the first three or four putters I was hitting (at the Cameron studio). I ended up with a Teryllium 1.5 for pretty much all of my high school years. It was helping me rotate the face a little bit better and I stroked it really nicely and then I started using the one I’m using today. That Teryllium really does have a soft feel. That was a significant change from the ones I was using. I used that when I started to become a good putter and nationally-recognized player through my junior golf years. I’ve never looked back. I’ve had a couple of

different versions with different sightlines. It's been trusty for me. It’s not triple black anymore. It’s almost like chrome on the bottom now.

BALL: Titleist Pro V1x.

“I’ve played the Pro V1x for as long as I can remember,” he said on a Titleist YouTube video. “If it doesn’t feel right, you’re not going to put it into play. It’s the first thing to pass the test. What I like to feel, especially as I get around the greens, is a nice balance. I don’t want it to feel like a marshmallow because I want to feel like I can hit that driving shot that can get to the back pin, but I want it to feel a little softer than average. The Pro V1x that I use, they’ve been working hard on that ability to just continue to just be more and more precise in that lower window with the wedges and for everyone that’s just a way better and more consistent way to have your wedge game.”
