What’s In The Bag: Anna Nordqvist

What’s in the bag of three-time Major winner and Solheim Cup stalwart Anna Nordqvist? Today’s Golfer reveals all.

2023 saw Anna Norqvist take on a player-vice captaincy role at the Solheim Cup in Andalucia, Spain. Nodqvist has been a mainstay in the European team since her debut in 2009.

The Swede is a three-time Major winner having triumphed at the 2009 LPGA Championship, the 2017 Evian Championship, and the 2021 British Open. That’s three different decades!

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

Nordqvist narrowly lost out to Brittany Lang at the 2016 US Open with the American player eventually going on to win via a playoff.

Nordqvist has amassed a further six titles on the LPGA Tour, and three more on the European Tour across her career which has seen her regularly finish the calendar year in the top 30 in the Women’s Golf World Rankings.

The Arizona State University graduate is a Swag Staffer and is easily identifiable on tour thanks to her flamboyant and vibrantly colored bags. The brand even designed a putter headcover modeled on Anna lifting the LPGA trophy in her native Swedish colorways.

There is a strong Titleist theme to her bag without being completely exclusive to the brand. Let’s dive into the specifics of what’s in Anna Nordqvist’s bag.

What driver does Anna Nordqvist use?

Anna Nordqvist uses a Titleist TSi3 driver (10º) with a Fujikura Ventus Red 6 S shaft

Since their introduction, the TSi series have become the most-played drivers on the PGA Tour with more than 100 players putting them in the bag, including Justin Thomas (TSi3), Adam Scott  (TSi3), Jordan Spieth (TSi3), Rafael Cabrera Bello (TSi3), Cameron Smith (TSi3).

The more compact, traditional pear shaping of TSi3 is aimed at more consistent ball-strikers seeking ultimate control over their flight.

A five-setting SureFit CG track offers precise adjustments, from ‘most heel biased’ through to ‘most toe biased’, allowing players to fine-tune their shot shape and launch. Unlike TS3, the weight is now easily visible, allowing you to see its position without removing any parts. Its location at the very rear of the club also increases stability on those off-center hits.

What fairway wood does Anna Nordqvist use?

Anna Nordqvist uses a Titleist TSi2 fairway wood (15°) with a Graphite Design Tour AD DI 75 shaft

The TSi2 and TSi3 fairway woods are speed-tuned to get the clubhead moving faster than ever and provide more distance across the face and are among the best fairway woods available. As with the TSi drivers, a high-contrast graphic face design makes alignment a breeze, while the softer toe profile requested by Titleist’s tour pros also moves into the fairway woods and gives a square look at address.

As with the TSi2 drivers, the fairway wood is a modern-shaped club aimed at players who want to launch it high with maximum forgiveness. TSi2 provides speed and accuracy across the clubface along with maximum distance and forgiveness thanks to a deeper and lower fixed center of gravity. There’s also an adjustable swing weight, along with the SureFit hosel, to enable the club to be perfectly fitted for your needs.

Lofts 13.5°, 15°, 16.5°, 18°, 21°
Shafts KURO KAGE Black DC (High launch, mid spin), TENSEI AV Series Blue Raw (Mid launch and spin), HZRDUS Smoke Black RDX (Low/mid launch and spin) and TENSEI AV Series White Raw (Low launch and spin).
Adjustable hosel Yes (multiple loft and lie settings with SureFit hosel)

What hybrids does Anna Nordqvist use?

Anna Nordqvist uses PXG 0317 X GEN2 hybrids (19°, 22°) with Graphite Design Tour AD DI-6 shafts

Price: 130.00 / $160.00 (used)
Just like the 0317 fairway, the 0317 hybrid is a real compact head, and not nearly as wide as some of the competition. Were big fans of the unfussy look and its uncanny knack of focusing attention directly on the back of the golf ball at address. Sound’s usually less of an issue when it comes to hybrids but by using the same TPE material in all the new woods you get a lovely consistent sound, feel, and feedback.  

Shots with the 0317 X soared into the air, time after time, after time. I hit the 22° so much higher and better than I ever could a 4-iron, and shots descended at a decent angle so they’d stop on a green too. And when needed, I could drill shots low into the breeze. Adjustable hosels seem to be dying out in hybrids, but for me, the extra versatility to dial in the exact loft to fill a distance gap in my set with the 0317 is absolutely invaluable. Needless to say the Cobra Baffler has now been retired to the garage.

Stock shaft Mitsubishi Chemical MMT Black 70

What irons does Anna Nordqvist use?

Anna Nordqvist uses Titleist T100 irons (5-PW) with UST Recoil 95 F4 shafts

Price: £164.00 / $185.00 RRP per club
The T100 iron is a modern players’ model aimed at better golfers and the most played on the PGA Tour. Aberg opts for the slightly older 2019 model of the T100.

Jordan Spieth, Will Zalatoris, Sungjae Im, Cameron Smith, Garrick Higgo, and Jessica Korda, have all been involved in the design process which has seen the T100 spend more than 1,000 hours in Titleist’s players’ hands.

Nordqvist's wedge selection can be found with personalized etchings of her nearest and dearest.

Titleist's wedge guru, Bob Vokey, rarely puts a foot wrong, and the Vokey SM9 wedges are no exception. In fact, we'd go as far as to say the Titleist Vokey Design SM9 wedges are the most versatile, accurate, and forgiving wedges the legendary designer has ever created.

There's an extensive range of grinds available, meaning you can find the perfect fit for your swing type (steep, neutral, shallow) and the course conditions you normally play (firm, neutral, soft). That does mean that a fitting is required to make sure you're getting the best-fitting wedge for your individual needs.

Introduced on Tour last September, the 2023 Titleist Pro V1x – arguably the best golf ball in the game – had been in development since the end of 2021.

The urethane cover on the Pro V1x is created by mixing two components, with the liquid urethane cast into Titleist-manufactured cavities to form the appropriate dimple pattern into the cover. Titleist says the precise timing and temperature are integral to the consistency of golf’s No.1 ball.

The 348-dimple design was a huge change in the 2021 ball and, unsurprisingly, that remains on the new model to optimize aerodynamics. The casing works with the new core to reduce excess long-game spin while combining with the cover to create greenside spin.
