What’s in the bag for Team Thomas?

The PNC Championship is underway this weekend and although the news cycle is dominated by the introduction of Charlie Woods, the other buzz has been around the father-and-son duo of Mike and Justin Thomas. The former FedExCup champ and his long-time PGA Professional father (and coach) are paired with the Woods duo and are an early favorite to compete for the title. Mike, a fine player in his own right, knows Florida golf well and Justin is an obvious asset to the team.

If you look at the bags of the Louisville duo, you will however see a stark difference (beyond the company name).

Justin is a high-speed, high-launch player who requires a setup that gets the ball flight down, all while enhancing or mitigating spin where it’s required. Mike, on the other hand, has a set built to get the ball in the air. All of his shafts are on the light side and his utility/iron setup are mid-to-high launch profiles that don’t knock spin down all that much.

For better golfers over the age of 60, Mike’s bag is a study in efficiency and one to take note of. His wood shafts mitigate spin but not too much, his irons (in combo with the shafts) are forgiving, packed with tech, and will help get the ball up, increase distance, and steepen the descent angle.

Where are they similar? Both of these golf bags are well thought out leaving each player with a ton of versatility and very little to chance. So, in that sense, like father like son.
