A look at Tiger Woods’ kit for the Masters

Tiger Woods last did so competing at the 2021 PNC Championship, alongside his son Charlie. Woods has certainly made physical changes and improvements since then, but when it comes to his gear setup, he hasn’t made many changes.

When Woods showed up at the 2021 PNC Championship, he had a new 9-degree TaylorMade Stealth Plus driver in the bag, equipped with his familiar Mitsubishi Diamana D+ Limited 60TX driver. So far at the 2022 Masters, it looks like that hasn’t changed.

During the 2021 PNC Championship, it appeared that Woods was testing two 3 different woods: a new TaylorMade Stealth Plus 15 degreeand a 15-degree TaylorMade SIM Titanium, which was released to the public in January 2020. It looks like Woods has decided to stick with his trusty TaylorMade SIM at this year’s Masters.

Woods fills the top of his bag with a TaylorMade M3 5 wood (19 degrees), a club that was released in 2018. Since Woods is deliberate when it comes to switching to new technologies, he is not no wonder he sticks with relatively older fairway woods that he’s used in the past.

The five-time Masters champion still uses his custom TaylorMade P-7TW irons (3-PW), TaylorMade MG2 TW grind wedges (56 and 60 degrees) and the Scotty Cameron GSS Newport 2 prototype putter he used to win 14 of his 15 major tournaments. He will also continue to use the 2022 Bridgestone Tour B XS prototype golf ball that he debuted at the 2021 PNC Championship.

Woods’ kit setup is largely unchanged, but he’s made a huge change so far at Augusta National in 2022. Although Woods has worn Nike shoes throughout his professional career, he was spotted wearing FootJoy golf shoes in both all-white and all-black versions in his practice rounds.

Woods spoke about the shoe confusion during his Tuesday press conference: “Well, I have very limited mobility now. Just with the rods, plates and screws that are in my leg, I needed something different, something that allowed me to be more stable. That’s where I went. Nike have been fantastic over the years in providing me with equipment…and we’ve been working, we’ve been working to try and find something that allows me to do that and swing again. We will continue to do so, and hopefully we will have something soon.

It looks like Woods’ surgically repaired right leg needs a bit more stability than Nike can offer so far, although based on Woods’ comments, it still seems possible that Nike could develop a prototype shoe to meet this. to his needs between now and the competition. If Woods shows up at the Masters on Thursday wearing FootJoy shoes, it will be his first time as a professional at the Masters with a brand other than Nike.
