Hannah Holden takes a closer look at the World No 1's setup

World No 1 Dustin Johnson has carried on his form after an incredible 2020 that saw him claim three PGA Tour victories as well as that Masters win. The now two-time major champion has recently announced he has re-signed with TaylorMade. So let’s take a look at what’s in his bag for 2021…

What’s in DJ’s bag?

At the top end of his bag Johnson has swapped his 3-wood to the new TaylorMade SIM2 Ti model.

In 2020 he followed McIlroy’s lead by adding two SIM Max rescues into his setup. But he does switch between the rescues, a 3-iron and a 7-wood depending on course conditions and is currently gaming the latter.

He then carries a full set of the TaylorMade P730 DJ Proto irons from 3-iron down to pitching wedge.

Johnson has swapped to two wedges to make room for an extra wood at the top of the bag. They are all in the TaylorMade Milled Grind 2 model with raw faces.

Honestly I’ve lost count of how many putters DJ has had in play over the last year. He was using a Spider Tour Mini putter but then swapped to a TaylorMade TB1 Truss. Now he’s back in his old faithful all black TaylorMade Spider Itsy Bitsy Limited.

He uses the TaylorMade TP5x ball.
