Professional golfers are very particular about which clubs they use, and Matt Fitzpatrick is no different.

Currently not tied down to a contract with one manufacturer, the 2022 US Open champion revealed to GolfMagic in an exclusive interview the thought behind his decision and why there are two brands in particular he can't get on with.

Sitting down to discuss his addition as a playable character in PGA Tour 2K23, Fitzpatrick said when it comes to selecting the clubs he plays with, it's less about money and more about what works for him.


Typically playing a mixed bag mainly featuring Titleist and PING clubs, the two-time PGA Tour winner revealed there are two brands in particular he can't play with.

Fitzpatrick told GolfMagic: 

"I struggle with TaylorMade and Callaway clubs because of the way their woods and hybrids are designed. The soles aren't very good for me so my interaction with the turf is terrible with those. Until that changes, I'd never be able to get on with them. PING and Titleist have always been a little bit better for me."

Recently, having gamed a Cobra AeroJet 3-wood, Fitzpatrick has also dropped that out of the bag and replaced it with a PING G410.

Take a look inside Matt Fitzpatrick's bag ahead of the 2023 Ryder Cup.

Allowing us to take a sneak peek at his bag, it was interesting to see Fitzpatrick currently has two drivers and two putters to choose from. It appears with only a matter of days to go until he flies out to Rome with Team Europe, there is still some tinkering to be done in order to figure out his ideal setup.

The two drivers Fitzpatrick had in his bag were the Titleist TSi3 and the Titleist TSR3. As recently as August, he was gaming the TSi3, so it will be interesting to see if makes a change ahead of one of the most important events of the year. 

Currently ranked as the 60th longest driver on the PGA Tour, there should be no concern over his distance, but accuracy is where he might be hoping to do some fine-tuning.

Currently ranked as the 121st most accurate driver on tour, Fitzpatrick finds the fairway 56.6 per cent of the time, and with the rough at Marco Simone being particularly thick, keeping the ball in the fairway could be the difference between winning and losing his matches. 

One of the best putters in the world, Fitzpatrick has gamed his Bettinardi BB1 Fitz for quite some time now, but it appears it has some competition with another BB1F prototype.

The two putters have a very similar profile but feel will likely be the deciding factor when it comes to choosing which one will be put in the bag in Rome.
