Ten years since his US Open win – how has McDowell’s equipment changed?

Graeme McDowell is STILL using the same putter with which he won the US Open with 10 years ago. So is there anything new in his bag?
 

Ten years on from his first and only major title to date, Graeme McDowell is once again a winner on tour. So what changes has he made to his equipment since the 2010 US Open? In this day of constant changes to equipment set-ups, it might surprise you to hear he still has one club in the bag from that maiden win.

Back in 2010 McDowell was a Callaway player but just a year later he made the switch and signed to Cleveland/Srixon. Let’s take a look inside his bag…

What’s in McDowell’s bag?

His current driver is the Srixon Z785, previously McDowell had a Callaway Big Bertha Fusion driver in play but in both clubs he has opted for 9.5 degrees of loft.

Graeme has recently swapped to a Callaway Mavrik fairway wood paired with a Srizon Z F45 5-wood with an exceptional amount of lead tape on the bottom… Back in 2010 he opted to carry a 3-wood and two hybrids instead of a 5-wood.

McDowell currently has the Srixon Z 745 irons in play from 4- to 9-iron. He uses the same Project X 6.5 shafts which he had in his Callaway X Forged irons back in 2010.

He pairs these with Cleveland RTX 2.0 Custom 46° & 52° wedges and a Cleveland 588 RTX 58° wedge. He carries the same lofts in his wedges that he favoured in 2010.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Graeme McDowell relies on his trusty Odyssey White Hot #7 putter that he used in his only major championship title to date, the US Open at Pebble Beach in 2010. He also plays the Srixon Z Star XV golf ball.
