What’s In The Bag: Charley Hull

What golf clubs and balls does Charley Hull use? Today’s Golfer delves into the LPGA winner’s TaylorMade bag.

Charley Hull finally ended her six-year wait for a second LPGA victory at The Ascendant LPGA Benefitting Volunteers of America, sparking wild celebrations on the final green.

Today's Golfer What's In The Bag is brought to you in association with Callaway Chrome Tour and Chrome Tour X golf balls.

The 26-year-old shot a seven-under-par 64 in the final round to battle through a crowded leaderboard and win by one shot, launching her back into the top 30 of the Rolex Women’s World Rankings. Georgia Hall, Hull’s close friend, helped get the celebrations started by running onto the green and spraying her fellow Englishwoman with champagne before embracing her.

The success came six years after Hull’s maiden LPGA victory at the 2016 CME Group Tour Championship and, alongside her three Ladies European Tour wins, further boosts the Kettering-born star’s impressive CV.

More recently, a strong performance at the Women’s British Open in 2023 saw Hull fall just short, eventually finishing runner-up to American Lilia Wu at Walton Heath.

Hull, who also won the first event in the Rose Ladies Series back in 2020, was the youngest golfer to play in the Solheim Cup when she made her debut aged 17 in 2013. She has been a member of Team Europe for six successive editions of the event and boasts a healthy winning record.

A TaylorMade staff player, Hull uses a full bag of the brand’s clubs, including the Stealth Plus driver, along with their TP5x golf ball. Let’s take a closer look at what’s in the bag of Charley Hull.

What driver does Charley Hull use?

Charley Hull uses a TaylorMade Stealth Plus driver (8°) with an Attas Rockstar 6X shaft

Never in 15 years of testing have we seen a driver outperform its peers by 12 yards of carry distance. Usually, once our pro’s ton of test shots have been averaged there’s no more than a handful of yards covering off the top few models. And a performance difference that small can easily be caveated with “data can be reversed or slightly different on another day testing”. But double-digit carry distance gains, in the hands of our test pro, are utterly unheard of here at TG.

We’ve got to admit we’re pretty shocked by Stealth Plus putting in such a strong performance. We’d tested the model before (in creating our Stealth YouTube video) when it out-performed Callaway and Ping models, with tidy but not ground-breaking ball speed and carry distance gains (2.8 mph of ball speed and 4 yards of carry distance gain over the longest), but those numbers were nothing like what we saw running our full 2022 driver test. The difference in part at least can be explained in switching Neil out of a recommended shaft (that to him felt like hard work) and into the stock (low flight) Mitsubishi Kai’Li, and boy are we glad we did.

What fairway wood does Charley Hull use?

Hull opts for the same model of fairway wood as her driver, the Stealth Plus, additionally gamed by European counterpart Tommy Fleetwood.

The Plus was our joint 2022 longest fairway wood (tied with the Callaway Rogue ST LS) at 251 yds carry distance (6 yards longer than the Stealth), but more importantly, our data shows exactly why TaylorMade elite staff players love putting this model in play.

The titanium and carbon fiber construction launches and flights shots higher (whilst lowering spin) which gives a steeper descent angle, and pros love that because they can loft up whilst losing no speed or distance and gain a slight advantage on getting shots to drop out of the air and stop on very long approaches.

What hybrid does Charley Hull use?

Charley Hull uses a TaylorMade SIM MAX hybrid (19°) with a UST iROD 85 S shaft

Price: 179.00 / $199.99 RRP
TaylorMade invented the hybrid category with the original Rescue back in the early 2000s, so it’s unsurprising they’re right at the sharp end of the market today.

The SIM Max is part of a long line of award-winning TaylorMade hybrids and it’s both powerful, forgiving, and good-looking, too.

We love the mid-width head shape, it sits really square at address and unlike some, its chalk and charcoal cosmetics give a really friendly and forgiving look. SIM Max was our longest hybrid of 2020 (average carry 226 yards), so it’s an excellent option for club golfers looking to replace long and mid irons.

A 16-yard carry drop-off (7%) was under our test average, too, which also tells us SIM Max offers a great blend of power and, crucially, forgiveness

TaylorMade has had absolutely no issues making some stunning blade irons over the years, but the P7MB has to be one of the finest the brand has ever created.

It’s little surprise then that the MBs have had decent golfers excited since Charley Hull won a Rose Ladies Series event with a set before they’d appeared on the men’s Tour.

The set has a constant blade length so the 3-iron and PW are very similar in length, which is very different to the P7TWs (Tiger Woods irons) which have inverted blade lengths so the short irons are longer than the mid and long irons. TaylorMade says extra blade length over the previous P730 increases forgiveness a little.

What wedges does Charley Hull use?

Where the TaylorMade Hi-Toe pushes what’s acceptable in terms of a wedge shape and full-face grooves, the Milled Grind wedge family has always been about classic and traditional wedge shapes.

This version – thanks to raised micro ribs on the face and an optimized thick-thin design – pushes backspin and CG placement to the optimum.

If you're not sold on the Hi-Toe head shape and the look of full-face grooves, the TaylorMade Milled Grind 3 should suit you down to the ground. It was one of our highest-spinning wedges on test in 2022 and one of the best at preserving distances on mishits.

What putter does Charley Hull use?

Charley Hull uses a TaylorMade Soto TP Hydro Blast Putter

The Soto is a classically shaped blade that features flowing, rounded edges, and the original model has been in and out of Rory McIlroy’s bag over the years.

A clean build with a single sightline on the back cavity, this time-honored shape is meant to inspire confidence and produce exceptional feel putt after putt.

Equipped with an L-neck hosel, the traditional blade shape produces 40° of toe hang, resulting in a putter that best fits players who create maximum face rotation throughout the putting motion.

What golf ball does Charley Hull use?

Charley Hull uses a TaylorMade TP5x golf ball

Best five-piece premium golf balls
Price: $49.95
Since the TP5x was first introduced by TaylorMade alongside the TP5 in 2017 they have been a serious competitor to the Pro V1 and Pro V1x on Tour and in the amateur game. Until TaylorMade unveiled their TP5 and TP5x golf balls, no brand had ever produced a five-piece golf ball. The combination of layers delivers a golf ball that flies consistently well with good distance and optimal spin from every club.

As a challenger to the best golf ball in professional golf, TaylorMade enhanced the technology within their TP5x to make them even more competitive at a more reasonable price. For those looking for assistance with alignment and an easier ball to see there is the Pix option with the TP5 and TP5x which not only adds vibrancy to the golf balls but also clearpath alignment to help roll in the putts.

What golf shoes does Charley Hull wear?

Charley Hull wears adidas ZG23 golf shoes

A favorite spiked golf shoe with our editior and Tour stars

Rrp: $200.00

Price: $90.00

$179.99
Previously, adidas has been criticized for making heavier golf shoes, but they've well and truly squashed that with ZG23. They are remarkably light golf shoes that push the boundaries of how lightweight footwear can perform.

It is a hybrid golf shoe that combines a recycled upper, with a Lightstrike midsole for maximum cushioning and energy return and is brought together with a six-cleat Traxion outsole.

Many brands would say that six cleats are not enough to give the best traction on a shoe. But the way the outsoles are designed with spikes and a layer of strategic molds makes you feel closer to the ground and helps you transfer weight through the swing. The ZG23 also has 3D cradles down the side for lateral stability during the golf swing.

All that you'd expect from a premium-priced shoe that is worn by some of the world's best players, it's also fully waterproof.

See how the ZG23 compares to the best adidas golf shoes.

Pros

  • Super lightweight
  • Easy to clean
  • Go great with any outfit

Cons

  • At first glance, it doesn’t look as premium as the price point
Sizes 6.5 – 14.5
Colors 5

ANEW is a high-end fashionable golf wear brand that Hull says is 'perfect' for her as it allows her to incorporate both fashion and golf wear into one.

Speaking to Women's Golf, Hull said: "I certainly think golf wear for women has come a long way in the last few years. I hope I can be a good example to girls/women out there that you can look good on the course and still be comfortable and fashionable all in one."
