FREE AGENT Reed is an equipment free agent, with no deal mandating the majority of clubs in his bag. However, his relationship with Grindworks (a Japan-based maker of premium clubs) has been fulfilling. “I love using the creative side of me, and this allowed me to do that in terms of the product and helping to build the brand,” says Reed, who is working with the company on a line of wedges. – with E.

SPECs Titleist TSi3, 9°, Aldila Rogue Silver 125 MSI 70 TX shaft. 

This driver went in the bag after I started to work with David Leadbetter, and my swing became more consistent. The driver I had been using was spinning too much. With this one the ball speed was good, the launch numbers were what we wanted and I could work it left and right.

Fairway wood/hybrid 

SPECS TaylorMade SIM, 15°, Aldila Rogue Black 130 MSI 80 TX shaft; Callaway Apex Pro, 20°, UST Mamiya Recoil Prototype 95 shaft.

I hope the 3-wood never breaks because it’s been pretty good for me. On the hybrid, I like the compact shape. I spin my woods a lot compared to my irons, and the smaller head helps keep the spin down.


SPECS Grindworks Patrick Reed Prototype (4-PW), True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 shafts, Golf Pride Tour Velvet grips.

We started from scratch with Grindworks. We wanted the centre of gravity in the middle of the face on every club. Then we worked on the sole, bounce, grind and offset and weighted each iron to optimise the launch and spin of each club.


SPECS Artisan prototype (51°), Titleist Vokey SM8 (56°, 60°), True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400 shafts. 

A lot of metal is moved off my wedges. It doesn’t matter what we start with. The whole thing is going to be grounded on. Still, the least amount of metal you can move, the easier it is to replicate.


SPECS Scotty Cameron Tour Rat prototype, 33.5 inches, Iomic grip.  

I’ve always found this look and neck allow me to aim the putter the best. I feel confident every day with my stroke. I’ve had three or four tournaments since I put this putter in play where I’ve had fewer than 100 putts. This baby is staying in the bag. I’m so comfortable with it.
