Nicolai Hojgaard is one of Europe’s brightest talents on the golf course. The Dane has three wins on the DP World Tour and is now a member of the PGA Tour.

In his first appearance at the Masters, Hojgaard is safely through to the weekend and handily placed at four-over-par after his second round.

But what clubs does the big-hitting Dane use?

The youngster from Denmark turned pro in 2019 and has been a member of the DP World Tour ever since. Hojgaard has had three DP World Tour wins in his career, with his biggest coming at the 2023 DP World Tour Championship, where he beat one of the strongest fields on the circuit, with a total of 21-under-par for the week.

What’s in Nicolai Hojgaard’s bag? 

Currently one of the longest on the DP World Tour, Nicolai Hojgaard has been using Callaway since 2023, when he and his twin brother Rasmus were signed to the brand.

Before that, he was using TaylorMade for his first two years on tour, but the switch to Callaway seems to be paying off, with a stroke average 69.44 on the DP World Tour in 2023.

At the top of the bag, Hojgaard has Callaway’s flagship driver and fairway woods in play. The Paradym Ai Smoke Triple Diamond woods make up the three longest clubs in his bag, with his driver and two fairway woods coming from the range.

Then, Hojgaard has used different driving irons to bridge the gap between his woods and irons. In the past, he’s used a game improvement Callaway Paradym 3-iron, but he’s also used a Callaway Apex 3-iron. Depending on conditions, he will swap his 20° fairway wood out for a driving iron. This year, he’s got a Callaway Apex Pro 4-iron in his bag, the more forgiving option in the Callaway Apex irons range. 

That leads nicely into a stunning set of Callaway Apex MB ’21 irons, with a rusted finish, which run from a 4-iron to a 10-iron. The 10-iron is essentially a pitching wedge, but Callaway has changed the way they label their irons on some sets.

Hojgaard has three wedges in the bag, with the lowest loft being a Mack Daddy 5 option, with 50° of loft. His two most lofted wedges are the Jaws Full Toe wedges, with 56° and 60° of loft. 

Hojgaard’s putter is an Odyssey O-Works Jailbird Mini. This has been a popular shape on tour in 2023, but Hojgaard prefers a smaller version of the head size used by Wyndham Clark to win the US Open.

Hojgaard uses one of the latest Callaway balls, the Tour Chrome X model. That’s a popular one among Callaway players and for good reason, with the ball speed it produces very impressive.
