Ally (McDonald) Ewing grew up playing golf in Mississippi and she went on to play college golf at Mississippi State University, where she won five events. Since turning pro back in 2015, Ewing has gone on to win three times on the LPGA Tour and represent the USA in the Solheim Cup.

Ewing’s latest victory was in September 2022 at the Kroger Queen City Championship (she finished fourth this season). Her first victory on the LPGA Tour was in 2020 at the LPGA Drive On Championship where she defeated fellow American and Solheim Cup teammate Danielle Kang.

The victory between those two was at the Bank of Hope LPGA Match-Play in 2021 – a sign of a good match-play competitor. However, this form hasn’t yet materialized in the Solheim Cup, with the American having a losing record on all appearances at the 2019, 2021 and 2023 Solheim Cup.

The Mississippi-born golfer headed to the 2023 Solheim Cup as one of Stacy Lewis’ Captain’s picks on the back of a very solid season on the LPGA Tour. Despite not having the best performance at the Solheim Cup in Andalucia, Ewing will be hoping she can find some form going into the 2024 season.

Ewing had a difficult start to life on the LPGA Tour because shortly after earning her Tour card she was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, this makes her record on Tour even more impressive.

As a Ping staffer, Ewing has a full bag of Ping clubs, but what are the exact models the American reaches for?

What’s In The Bag: Ally Ewing

What driver does Ally Ewing use?

Ally Ewing uses a Ping G430 LST Driver (10.5°) with a Ping Tour 2.0 Black 65 Stiff shaft

Price: £575.00 / $579.00 RRP


At the start of the season, Ewing made the switch from G425 to G430, specifically the LST model. This is the lower spinning and less forgiving head in the range and seems to be the most popular Tour option. She ranks better for distance (35th) than accuracy (54th) but both are above the Tour average.

What fairway wood does Ally Ewing use?

Ally Ewing plays with a Ping G425 LST Fairway Wood (14.5°) with a True Temper Evenflow Blue 65 Stiff shaft

Price: £229.00 / $249.00


Ewing might have the newest Ping driver in the bag, but she still holds on to the older Ping G425 fairway wood and once again it's the LST model. Ewing uses this as a tee box replacement and from the fairway when approaching par 5s. As the low-spinning model, the ball flies off this club and almost keeps up with her driver.

What hybrid does Ally Ewing use?

Ally Ewing has a Ping G430 Hybrid (19°) with a Ping ALta CB Black 70 Stiff shaft

Price: £295.00 / $329.99 RRP


Ewing's third wood in the bag is a Ping G430 Hybrid. This club sits perfectly between her fairway wood and 4-iron, and it's easier to hit than a driving iron and more versatile than both an iron and a fairway wood. It doesn't often come out of the bag but when it does it's mostly very effective.

What irons does Ally Ewing use?

Ally Ewing has a full set of Ping i210 Irons (4-PW) with a Ping Alta CB Slate Stiff shaft (4-iron) and Ping AWT 2.0 Regular shafts (5-PW)

Price: £126.00 / $188.00 RRP (per club)


It's very interesting looking through the bags of Ping Tour players. Some players have made the switch to the new Ping i230s whereas some have stuck with the older Ping i210s. Ewing, like Viktor Hovland, has hung on to her Ping i210s. Why not? This season Ewing ranks 10th for GIR in 2023.

What wedges does Ally Ewing use?

Ally Ewing has three Ping 4.0 Wedges (50°/SS, 54°/SS & 58°/SS) with Ping AWT 2.0 Wedge shafts (50° & 54°) and Nippon Modus 105 Wedge shaft (58°)

Price: £160.00 / $199.00 RRP (per club)


Like the irons, there is a divide between Ping staffers and what wedges they play with. Ewing is in the camp of Glide 4.0 wedges. She has three of them in the bag that gap perfectly with her irons. The American doesn't have the best short game but luckily she rarely misses the green from the fairway.

What putter does Ally Ewing use?

Ally Ewing has a personal Ping PLD Anser Custom Putter

Price: £399.00 / $449.00 RRP


You know you've made it in golf if you're using a one-of-one club. Ewing has found a lot of success with the flat stick in 2023. The 30-year-old ranks 15th in putts per GIR and while her putting average is quite high she is a very strong putter.

What golf balls does Ally Ewing use?

Ally Ewing reaches for Titleist Pro V1x Golf Balls

Rrp: £50.00

Price: £44.95
Amazon Amazon Prime
The first piece of equipment in Ewing's bag that isn't Ping, is the golf balls she uses. She plays with Titleist Pro V1x golf balls (what else). Ping doesn't make golf balls anymore hence why she doesn't use them, but it would have to be a quality golf ball to stop her from using Pro V1x's
