What's in Zach Johnson's Bag?

Posted: April 9, 2007

With unwavering belief in himself and trust in his equipment, Titleist brand ambassador Zach Johnson secured his place in golf history by winning the 2007 Masters Tournament. Congratulations Zach. With challenging conditions at Augusta National and the world's best players surrounding him, Johnson displayed patience and perseverance to earn his first major championship and second career PGA TOUR title. Johnson's previous win was at the 2004 BellSouth Classic in just his 13th PGA TOUR start.

Johnson, relying upon the New Titleist Pro V1x golf ball, Pro Titanium 905R (8.5) driver, 503.H (19.0) utility iron, 735.CM (3-4) and 695CB (5-9) irons, Vokey Design pitching (48) and sand (54) wedges and a Vokey Design Spin Milled lob wedge (60) for his success, posted three birdies in a crucial four-hole stretch on the back nine on Sunday en route to his two-shot victory. Johnson closed with a 3-under 69 to finish at 1-over 289, tying for the day's best round and for the highest winning overall score in Masters history.

You may remember the posting on this blog April 3: Bob Vokey with Zach Johnson: This is what Voke had to say about Zach's preparation for the Masters:

"Zach was looking to tweak his wedges a little bit in preparation for the Masters, especially his 60°. He is going to experience a lot of tight lies and fast greens at Augusta National, so he was looking for a lob wedge with a little less trailing edge and a little less bounce that he could more easily slide underneath the ball. I also made him a couple Spin Milled backups for all his wedges and sent them to his home so he could practice with them during his off week. His current wedges were getting worn and he wanted a little more bite this week. Zach had a Top 10 finish at Doral. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him get another one at Augusta."- The Voke

What flex shafts does Zach use in his clubs?

Evman1023


Zach's driver has the Aldila NV 75-S shaft and his irons have soft stepped Dynamic Gold X-100 shafts.  For those that don't know, soft stepping occurs when a shaft that is tip trimmed for a longer club is placed in the next shorter club (for shafts that allow for tip trimming). The shaft is then trimmed for length on the butt end. The resulting longer tip section plays slightly softer than the stock shaft.

There is no mention of the type of putter Zach uses!

We assure you that Zach plays with soft stepped True Temper Dynamic Gold X-100 shafts in all of his irons.

I may be wrong, but it looked to me that Zach was hitting Project X Rifle shafts??

Twelve of the fourteen clubs in Zach's bag are made by Titleist. Those clubs are listed above.

What is the length and stiffness of the hybrid shaft?

What is the length of his irons?

What is stiffness of the wedge shafts?

I feel great for Zach and I can't wait to hit those new drivers....

What are the bounce angles on his Vokey wedges?

Why doesn't he use an S-300 or an S-400 instead of soft stepping the shaft?
