What’s In The Bag: Joaquín Niemann

What golf clubs and ball does Joaquín Niemann use? Our in-depth review of what’s in the bag of the Chilean for 2024.

Joaquín Niemann joined LIV in August 2022 as captain of Torque GC. The Chilean remains the captain of Torque GC and achieved his maiden victory on the LIV Golf Tour in 2024 at LIV Golf Mayakoba.

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

Joaquin Niemann won his first LIV Golf event at LIV Golf Mayakoba

Following a career-best 59 in the first round of the tournament, Niemann stormed to a five-shot lead over Patrick Reed of 4Aces GC. The Torque GC captain became the second golfer in LIV Golf’s short history to card a sub-60 round – the first being Bryson Dechambeau’s impressive 58 at LIV Golf Greenbrier in 2023.

After a blemish-free first round, the 25-year-old fired in a one-over-par 72 in the second round which included a two-stroke penalty, that was assessed following the conclusion of his round, for taking relief incorrectly. It meant that Niemann started the final round with just a two-shot advantage rather than the four-shots he would have thought he had when he signed his card after the 36th hole.

Niemann battled his way through the final round to produce a one-under-par finish to force a playoff with Fireballs GC captain, Sergio Garcia, who carded a brilliant five-under-par round of 66. After four playoff holes, Niemann finally prevailed with a birdie to win his first LIV Golf Tour event under the stars in Mexico.

His victory at LIV Golf’s opening tournament of the 2024 season was the 11th of his career. Niemann’s most recent victory before winning at Mayakoba was also in a playoff at the ISPS Handa Australian Open in 2023.

Niemann won the third event on the 2024 DP World Tour calendar thanks to an eagle on the second playoff hole to defeat Japan’s Rikuya Hoshino. With that win in Sydney, the Chilean earned himself a place in the field for the 152nd Open Championship at Royal Troon.

Unlike his two most recent victories, Niemann won in commanding fashion at the 2022 Genesis Invitational on the PGA Tour with a wire-to-wire whitewash of the field. That week Niemann broke the 36 and 54-hole scoring records.

As a 20-year-old Niemann became the first Chilean golfer to win on the PGA Tour at the Greenbrier Classic in 2019. If any other compatriot goes on to win a PGA Tour event it’s highly unlikely they’ll be younger.

Niemann had tasted success seven times before joining the PGA Tour. Those seven victories all came on the Chilean Tour as a teenager, barring his last.

After following in the footsteps of Jon Rahm and Jordan Spieth in earning his PGA Tour card without needing to play the Web.com Tour finals, the former Amateur World No.1 did break into the top 20 players in the men’s Official World Golf Rankings. However, now a full member of the LIV Golf Tour Niemann is unable to earn enough World Ranking points to keep himself high in the rankings.

Before joining the LIV Golf Tour Niemman was seen walking the fairways head to toe in Adidas apparel and footwear, and playing with Ping equipment. However, now as captain of Torque GC, what is in Joaquín Niemann’s bag?

What driver does Joaquín Niemann use?

Joaquín Niemann plays with a Ping G430 LST Driver (10.5°) with a Graphite Design Tour AD DI 6 X shaft

Price: $579.00
The Chilean superstar plays with Ping's low-spinning driver which despite not being known for its forgiving nature Niemann doesn't struggle finding fairways.

What fairway woods does Joaquín Niemann carry?

Joaquín Niemann plays with a Ping G430 Max 3-wood (15°) with a Graphite Design Tour AD DI 8 X shaft

Price: £350.00 / $349.99 RRP
The first of two fairway woods in Niemann's bag is a Ping G430 Max 3-wood with 15° of loft. Unlike the low-spinning G430 LST driver in his bag, the 3-wood in the LIV stars bag is a super forgiving model he can use to attack pins and find fairways.

Joaquín Niemann uses a Ping G420 Max 7-wood (20.5°) with a Graphite Design Tour AD DI 8 X shaft

Price: £299.00 / $373.99 RRP
Niemann's second fairway wood in his bag is a previous model Ping. The Chilean isn't the only professional golfer who enjoys playing with a 7-wood. The Torque GC captain has his 7-wood set at 19.5°.

What hybrid does Jaoquín Niemann play with?

Joaquín Niemann carries a Ping G430 5-hybrid (26°) with a Graphite Design DI Hybrid 9 X shaft

Price: $299.00
Hybrids aren't massively popular on Tour, especially 5-hybrids, and especially when Niemann carries an iron that matches the loft. However, if it works for Niemann then I'm not going to argue.
The 5-hybrid in the Chilean's bag is a 26° Ping G430.

What irons does Jaoquín Niemann have in the bag?

Joaquín Niemann plays with a set of Ping Blueprint S Irons (5-PW) with Project X 6.0 shafts

Price: £1,400.00 / $1,500.00 RRP
Torque GC's captain carries just the six irons in his set of Ping Blueprint S irons. The 5-iron in this set matches the loft of his Ping G430 hybrid. However, with a GIR percentage greater than 75% at LIV Golf Mayakoba, he clearly knows what setup is best for him.

What wedges does Joaquín Niemann use?

Joaquín Niemann plays with three Ping S159 Wedges (52°-12°, 56°-12° and 60°-10°) with Project X 6.5 shafts

Price: £179.00 / $199.00 RRP
Sadly, Niemann is playing with wedges that aren't available for the public to purchase. His three wedges are Ping S159 wedges that are expected to be released in 2024. The wedges are very plain just like Ping's Glide Forged Pro wedges.

What putter does Joaquín Niemann play with?

Joaquín Niemann putts with a Ping PLD Anser Putter

Price: £399.00 / $449.99 RRP
Niemann, like millions of golfers around the world, elects to putt with a blade putter, and one of the best too. The Anser is one of the most beloved putter heads and Niemann finds much success with his. Niemann's putter is customized, but you can play with one incredibly similar if you wish to do so.
