Joohyung Kim What’s in the bag?
South Korean professional Joohyung Kim is unquestionably a rising star in the world of men’s golf who is making his way to the PGA Tour and winning his first PGA Tour event at the 2022 Wyndham Championship in dominant fashion. We expect more success and so we took a look inside his bag here.
Joohyung Kim What’s in the bag?
Kim is a Titleist staff player and uses a bagful of Titleist clubs, starting with a brand new Titleist TSR3 driver. One of many Titleist players to put this model in the bag, the TSR range launched earlier in 2022 and the TSR3 head is the most adjustable of the three new models, with movable weight on the back of the head. He has it with nine degrees of loft and is fitted with a Fujikura Atmos Black 6 X neck.
Kim also decides to put the TSR3 fairway wood in the bag as well. The TSR3 fairway wood has a five-position movable weight that should allow players and setters to really dial in ball flight and launch conditions while Kim decides to use it in the A1 position with a Mitsubishi Tensei 1K Pro shaft. White 70 TX. it also has 13.5 degrees of loft.
Titleist T200, Titleist T100
Moving on to irons, Kim uses the Titleist T200 model in her two and three irons, while the rest of her irons, from the four iron to the pitching wedge, are Titleist T100s. Based on our testing, we felt that for any low handicap player who isn’t the best ball hitter or an avid golfer in the teenage low handicap range, the T200 seems to offer the ideal blend of performance attributes. performance in terms of tolerance if necessary and control.
The T100 is an iron for low handicap players looking for a classic compact shape with some forgiveness. They feature players’ traditional iron lofts in a forged cavity construction. The face is thin and responsive, while the use of tungsten weights in the 3-7 irons improves forgiveness of off-center hits. Our testing told us that this is a good compact iron for better players looking for a mix of control and consistency.
Titleist Vokey Design SM9, Titleist Vokey Design WedgeWorks Proto
Moving on, Kim currently has three Titleist Vokey wedges, including two SM9s (52, 56), while her 60-degree model is a WedgeWorks prototype.
Scotty Cameron TourType GSS Prototype
His latest club in the bag is a prototype Scotty Cameron TourType GSS, which is a very similar blade design to that used by Scottie Scheffler.
Titleist Pro V1x
Kim is one of many Titleist pros to use the Titleist Pro V1x golf ball. It features the same reformulated 2.0 ZG process core and softer cover as the Pro V1 for improved distance and improved feel and control. What separates the two is that the Pro V1x is the lower-spin model, which makes sense given how important distance is on the Tour right now.
