What’s in the Bag? – Lydia Ko
wasting your time trying to explain what kind of ridiculous season World No. 1 Lydia Ko is having, I’m just gonna list a few of her stats below:
1 Major Championship (ANA Inspiration)
1 Major Runner-Up (Lost in playoff at KPMG)
3 LPGA Wins (T1)
#1 Official Money
#1 Scoring Average (69.078)
#1 Putting Average (28.67)
#1 Top 10 Finish Percentage (69%)
The 19-year-old will look to win her 3rd major championship at the U.S. Women’s Open this week in Northern California.
Here are the Callaway clubs she’ll use…
XR 16 Pro (10.5°)
Lydia switched into XR 16 Pro in March and immediately won the Kia Classic, followed by the first major of the season.
Optifit Hosel Setting: N/-1
Big Bertha Alpha 815 (14° & 18°)
Big Bertha Hybrid (23° & 25°)
Apex Pro Irons (5-PW)
Mack Daddy 2 Tour Grind (54° & 58°)
White Hot Pro 2-Ball
Ko, currently the best putter on the LPGA (see stats above), has a black line painted through the middle of her two-ball for an additional alignment aid.
A Chrome Soft Ball
When you're the best female golfer on the planet, you get to customize your own Chrome Soft golf balls. In Lydia's case, she prefers hers with a black 7 and "LKO" printed on the side.
