Eclectic. That’s probably the best way to describe the bag of the new Masters champion Patrick Reed.
The American, who is without an equipment deal, wielded a bit of everything en route to his first major victory at the weekend – and not just new gear, either.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, given how important it is to roll your rock on a string at Augusta National, 27-year-old Reed led the field in putting, averaging 1.44 putts per hole – the best of anybody who made the cut. In his hands on the greens was an Odyssey White Hot Pro #3, which he has used on and off for a number of years.
Also, if you don’t recognise the wedges he used, we wouldn’t expect you to. Reed had a pair of Artisan Golf wedges in the bag, Artisan Golf being a new company headed up by former Nike wedge man Mike Taylor. Reportedly, Taylor is using former Nike Golf equipment sanctuary ‘The Oven’ to make the clubs and Reed, by all accounts, is a huge fan.
Here’s a look at all the clubs the new Masters champion used at Augusta National.
