The 2024 Masters has come to a close with an incredible performance through the week from the now two-time Masters champion Scottie Scheffler. But what has been the best performing gear at The Masters this year? 

Of course, we know that the players are the ones who make all the difference, but we thought it would be interesting to take a deeper dive into the best performing players from each aspect of the game, and what equipment they were using.

Believe it or not, Scottie Scheffler isn’t leading every single stat here. The likes of Max Homa and Rory McIlroy do feature in this list, thanks to them leading the field in certain stats.

Let’s take a look at some of the best performing equipment at the Masters.

Irons – Greens in Regulation 

The irons that the hit the most greens this week were used by the 2023 Masters champion Jon Rahm’s and Max Homa, who both hit 70.83% of greens in regulation.  

Jon Rahm plays the Callaway Apex Pro 4-iron and 5-PW in Callaway Apex TCB irons. This is accompanied by the Callaway Jaws Raw wedges, which comes in lofts of 52°, 56° and 60°. Rahm’s full WITB can be found here. 

Max Homa currently plays the Titleist T100S in a 4-iron, a Titleist T100 5-iron and the Titleist 620 MB in 6-9 iron. He then goes into a Titleist Vokey SM9 46°, 50°, 56° and Vokey WedgeWorks 60°.  

It wasn’t the week Jon Rahm wanted but a positive to take from it was his iron play. For Max Homa a tied third finish was a great way to start the major season and will surely give him a great confidence boost for the rest of the year.

Driver – Driving Distance 

There was a clear standout when it came to driving distance last week and there is no surprise that it’s Rory McIlroy. These averages are taken from the 5th and 15th holes at Augusta National where McIlroy averaged 317.62 yards. His longest on these holes was 333.5 yards. His driver set up is the TaylorMade Qi10 9° with a Ventus Black 6X which is the standard offering from TaylorMade. This features a bit more forgiveness and a higher MOI than the Qi10 LS model. 

A notable mention must go to Bryson Dechambeau. The big-hitting American knocked one 372 yards down the 17th hole at Augusta National, which is impressive by anyone’s standards. DeChambeau uses a Krank Formula Fire 6° driver. You can find his WITB here. Trust us, it’s an entertaining read.

Driver – Driving accuracy 

Si Woo Kim led the driving accuracy stats this week, with 87.5% of fairways hit for the week. In his second round, he hit every single fairway at Augusta National. His Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond driver, which is set at 9°, seemed to make it easy to find the tight fairways at Augusta National. There’s no surprise that this was the strongest part of his game this week. 

Wedges – Sand saves 

When it comes to short game, it was the young and upcoming superstar Ludvig Aberg who impressed. The Swede was 100% for scrambling from greenside bunkers, getting up and down six times out of six over the week. 

To do that, he used the new Titleist Vokey Design SM10 wedges in a 50-08F, 54-10S, and a WedgeWorks Proto 60-10V. Impressive stuff.

Putter – Fewest total putts

It was a relatively steady but quiet week for Patrick Reed, but the putter was hot. Reed, who finished in a tie for 12th last week, took the fewest putts over the week, with 101 putts over the 72 holes. Of course, that number looks great because Reed was very much at the wrong end of the greens in regulation stat, but who are we to argue? He currently uses an Odyssey White Hot Pro 3, the same putter he used to win the 2018 Masters. 

Full bag – Most birdies made 

Nicolai Hojgaard had 21 birdies through the week, just one more than Scottie Scheffler who made 20. Hojgaard is Callaway throughout the whole bag, and you can see what the hard-hitting Dane has in his bag here. 

Scottie Scheffler – Top Performing ball

We suppose that the best performing ball is the one that was hit the fewest times, and that accolade belongs to Scottie Scheffler’s Titleist Pro V1. From green to tee, Scheffler had great control of his golf ball, and around the greens he hit some of his most important shots. Around the greens for the tournament, Scheffler gained an average of 1.97 shots on the field around the greens.
