The New Zealander has started 2022 with a bang claiming her seventeenth LPGA Tour victory. Hannah Holden takes a closer look at her set-up

Lydia Ko had been a PXG staffer since 2017, but they parted ways earlier this year when her original five-year deal ended.

Originally Lydia kept most of her PXG clubs in play but her bag has become much more eclectic over the last few months.

Let’s take a closer look at the New Zealander’s bag…

Lydia Ko WITB

What’s in Lydia Ko’s bag?

The first club Lydia switched when her PXG deal ended was her driver. She followed in the footsteps of numerous LPGA tour stars by opting to put a Titleist model in play. Danielle Kang, Nelly Korda and Jessica Korda have all swapped to Titleist equipment recently.

Lydia originally put the Titleist TSi3 in play at the start of the season, but she has now made the switch to the latest Titleist TSR3 model. Interestingly Danielle Kang, Nelly Korda, Jessica Korda and Lydia Ko all opted for different TSi models. They used TSi2, TSi1, TSi4 and TSi3 respectively.

After driver, Lydia carries a Titleist TSi2 3-wood, a PXG 0341 X GEN2 5-wood and a Ping G425 hybrid.

Ko has also swapped to a completely new set of irons. She has two models of Proto Concept irons in play. The C07 in her 6-iron and C05 from 7 to 9-iron. Lydia put these irons in play back in January and won the Gainbridge LPGA the following week.

She has also rather interestingly added a Titleist T200 5-iron to her set-up with some lead tape on the back of the club head. If you are wondering what the colourful grips are, they are Iomic Sticky 1.8 golf grips which come in numerous funky colours.

She carries four Titleist Vokey SM9 wedges and opts for a 46° instead of a traditional pitching wedge.

Ko rounds out her bag with a centre-shafted Scotty Cameron GSS putter and the Pro V1x golf ball.

Lydia’s last piece of equipment? Her brand new Ecco Biom G5 LK golf shoe. Lydia helped co-design the shoes with Ecco. If you look closely you can see the Hibiscus flower and Fern detailing. These pay homage to Lydia Ko’s country of birth, South Korea, and the country where she grew up, New Zealand, respectively.
