Luke Donald and his Mizuno Golf Equipment

Take a look at Luke Donald’s swing and you can see why the world number one is often regarded as the model of consistency on the golf course. With his game built around clean hitting of the ball, a strong, consistent swing allied to innovative shot making, it is not difficult to understand why this Northwestern University graduate has elevated himself to the top of the golf rankings.

For the novice golfer, taking a glimpse into the bag of the world number one golfer offers an insight into how players carefully select the golf equipment that suit their style and their game.


Donald signed a multi-year agreement with Japanese manufacturer Mizuno in January 2010, his third agreement with the company. However the contract is slightly different to that operated by many golfers.

In his Mizuno Staff Bag, Donald places two Mizuno MP-T-11 wedges, 54⁰ and 60⁰, each with True Temper Dynamic Gold S300 shafts and Golf Pride New Decade Multicompound Blue Grips. Donald uses the same shafts and grips on his Mizuno MP-62 irons, and he has a full set of irons in the bag from a 3-iron down to a pitching wedge.

In addition, Donald has elected to remove the traditional 5-wood from the golf bag and replace it with a hybrid club, the Mizuno CLK Fli-Hi 17⁰ Hybrid, with an Aldila NV 85 X shaft and the same Golf Pride grip found on all his irons and wedges.

I’m entering a very critical phase of my career,” stated Donald after signing the new deal with MizunoPrecise iron play is probably my biggest attribute and Mizuno’s Grain Flow Forgings make the most of that strength.

It is interesting to note that Donald’s deal with Mizuno does not include his driver, 3-Wood or his putter: this despite the fact that the golfer tested the Mizuno MP-630 driver in 2010.

Donald’s comparative lack of length off the tee compared to other players has always been a potential shortcoming of the Englishman. Despite this seemingly insurmountable problem, especially on courses which are now set up to test even the longest hitters on tour, Donald seems to have found a happy medium by sticking with a driver which gives him greater length, but retains the trademark accuracy that has propelled him to the top spot in the world rankings.

For his driver and 3-Wood, Donald has elected for the TaylorMade R11 9.5⁰ driver and the Taylormade R9 fairway 13⁰, both with Accra AXIV XC75 X shafts. Both golf clubs have gained widespread acceptance across the pro tour, with their striking white design now commonplace on television screens across the globe.

Indeed, when Donald claimed victory in the PGA Championship at Wentworth during May, the fact the R11 had allowed Donald to drive the ball with greater length as well as customary accuracy played a big part in his stunning play-off victory over Lee Westwood.

For the crucial art of putting Donald opts for an Odyssey White Hot XG 2.0 #7, with a Black series grip. With putting, the foundation stone of Donald’s all round game, it would seem that the Odyssey gives the Englishman the accuracy and feel he needs on the greens.

Lastly, for his ball Luke Donald follows many other professional and amateur golfers by using the popular Titleist Pro V1x, for added feel around the greens, a trademark of the game of the new world number one.

I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article

In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet
will be a lot more useful than ever before.
