WITB Viktor Hovland - Technology Championship Winner
There is nobody that loves the World Wide Technology Championship like Viktor Hovland. Hovland has three PGA Tour victories, but two of them are back to back at Mayakoba. If you saw the impressive performance by Hovland, you may be curious which clubs he used to go back to back at the World Wide Technology Championship. One of our favorite things about taking a deeper look into Hovland’s bag is the unique lineup of equipment that he has. Although Hovland is mostly a Ping player, there are some TaylorMade and Titleist clubs in the mix.
Viktor Hovland is currently playing with the Ping G425 LST set to a 9-degree loft. The shaft in the driver is the Fujikura Speeder 661 TX. This is an impressive golf shaft option that can handle the speed that Hovland has in his golf swing. The new Ping G425 LST has been a favorite among low handicap players this year. This driver gets a tremendous amount of roll and impressive overall ball flight with the low spin rates.
Hovland is more of an irons player and does not use too many hybrids, woods, or utility clubs in his bag. The only fairway wood that Hovland carries is the TaylorMade SIM in a 15 degree. The shaft in this fairway wood is a Mitsubishi Tensei Blue AV Raw 85 TX.
Viktor Hovland is a big fan of his irons, and he has full confidence in them. The irons are the Ping i210 in the 3-PW. The only difference in these irons is that the 3 iron has the Graphite Design Tour AD DI Hybrid 85 X shaft, while the rest of the set has the KBS Tour V120 X.
Hovland is very precise with his irons, and he can hit them close from almost any location on the golf course.
As you can tell from the shaft choices in his clubs, Hovland has both strength and speed in his golf game.
For the wedges, there is a mix of Ping and Titleist clubs in the bag. The Ping Glide Forged Pro wedges in the 50 and 56-degree lofts. The Titleist Vokey Design SM8 in a 60 degree will round out the wedges in the bag. The Ping Glide and the Titleist Vokey pair well together because of the impressive feel and spin that both of these wedges offer players.
One thing that we can say for sure about the iron and wedge combination that Hovland has is that the overall look is very clean and precise. Each of the wedges will also have the same KBS Tour V 130 X golf shaft in them.
The putter in Hovland’s bag is the Ping PLD DS 72. This is a mallet-style putter but a very classic-looking mallet with a short alignment line and a clean-looking black finish. The Ping PLD putters sit very close to the ground, making it easy to get a low and solid roll on the putt.
This golf club combination works quite well for Viktor Hovland. Chances are he will keep this set around for a while and see what else he can do in the coming weeks.
