After pretty much every TOUR win, you don’t have to look far for a “what’s in the bag” post. I like to review them, but I am never going to play the same clubs a TOUR pro does. I was flipping through an issue of Golf Magazine, and saw a “what’s in the bag” post featuring Marc Leishman’s clubs. Since he plays Callaway, I decided to share his setup with you here today. So, if you were ever curious what this Aussie is playing, here you go.
Driver: Callaway XR 16
Fairway Woods: Callaway XR Pro, Callaway XR 16
Utility Iron: Callaway Apex Utility
Irons: Callaway Apex Pro
Wedges: Callaway MD3 (46°, 54°, 58°)
Putter: Odyssey Versa #1
Ball: Callaway Chrome Soft
I am surprised he isn’t playing the new Chrome Soft. I also wonder if these TOUR guys play the same ball you and I can buy on store shelves. I would be surprised if they did, to be honest.
I never noticed that Golf Magazine also shared the retail value of the clubs. So, if you were to buy this set, it would cost you $2,690.
“My new XR16 driver is very long and easy to hit straight. The ball speed is tremendous and has a lot of forgiveness. Even when I miss the center of the fact, I still get the distance I need,” Leishman commented.
Like I said, I am never going to play the same clubs Marc or any other TOUR pro does. But it’s fun to think about.
What do you think about the “what’s in the bag” posts?
