Justin Rose teed up at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and there were some interesting additions to his set-up
Justin Rose signed a new deal to play Honma clubs in 2019, ending his 20-year relationship with TaylorMade. The big reason for this was flexibility, ultimately allowing him to be able to use whatever putter he liked. But he teed it up at the 2020 Arnold Palmer Invitational without a single Honma club. So what’s in the Englishman’s bag now?
What’s in Rose’s bag?
Rose started the season with a Honma TR20 460 driver but has now made the switch into the TaylorMade SIM driver. He’s also put in a TaylorMade SIM 3-wood and a Cobra Speedzone 5-wood.

Rose has taken his Honma TR20B irons out of the bag and replaced them with a full set of the TaylorMade P730 irons.

Rose carries three wedges. His two Honma Prototypes have been replaced with TaylorMade Milled Grind wedges. His lob wedge is still a 60 degree Titleist prototype.
He uses the Axis 1 Rose Proto putter, which is now available to the public.
So it looks like Rose and Honma are done and TaylorMade are back in the frame…
