What’s in Akshay Bhatia’s bag?

Akshay Bhatia is one of the best young prospects on the PGA Tour, so let’s take a deep dive into his golf bag.

 

Who doesn’t love watching a lefty emerge on the scene on the PGA Tour?

First, we had Phil Mickelson, then we had Bubba Watson. Mike Weir wasn’t bad either and Brian Harman came of age at golf’s oldest major in 2023.

Akshay Bhatia appears to be the new kid on the block doing it for the lefties. He broke through on the PGA Tour at the Barracuda Championship last year and joined the PGA Tour as a full member, having been a Special Temporary Member.

This playoff win over Patrick Rodgers was the crowning moment of his career on the PGA Tour until he arrived at the 2024 Valero Texas Open.

Bhatia dominated proceedings and at one stage, he held a six-shot lead in the final round before Denny McCarthy rallied with eight birdies on the back nine.

The pair went to a playoff on the par 5 18th hole where McCarthy dunked his third shot in the water short of the green which allowed Bhatia to take the victory and book his spot at the Masters.

Bhatia is kitted out from head to toe in Callaway. He joined the popular equipment brand at the age of 17 when he turned professional in September 2019.

At the top of his bag, the young American uses the Callaway Rogue ST Max LS driver and a Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Max 3-wood.

Bhatia uses a Callaway Apex UW prototype hybrid which is 19 degrees but set at 17.8 degrees. He has a full set of Callaway Apex TCB Raw irons and three Callaway Jaws Raw wedges.

He rounds out his bag with an Odyssey Versa Jailbird 380 putter. Bhatia also has the Callaway Chrome Tour ball in play. Watch this space as the towering young phenom ascends the PGA Tour ranks in the coming years.
