John Daly’s Incredible 2023 Equipment Setup

John Daly’s new clubs are nearly as singular as the player using them.

GolfWRX.com got an up-close look at Daly’s unique set this week at the PGA TOUR Champions’ Galleri Classic at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, California. This is the inaugural PGA TOUR Champions’ event at the course that was the longtime venue for the LPGA’s opening major each year.

The two-time major champion was using irons covered in so much lead tape that they were virtually unidentifiable. Daly adds the lead tape to his clubs to offset the weight of SuperStroke S-Tech Cord oversized grips that weigh roughly 30 grams more than standard (in the world of golf equipment, that’s a significant amount of weight).

Daly now uses three hybrids instead of two, and he has just four irons in the bag (6-, 7-, 8- and 9-irons). He’s also switched into a new driver and 3-wood, he’s changed iron models, he’s reconfigured his wedge setup, and he changed into a new custom putter.

Check out Daly’s new full club specifications below.

    What a great course! The links style course offers a lot of room for new players but it is a tough course to master for lower handicap players. The course is always in amazing shape.The management of this course is top notch!
  • Thomas - Grand Rapids, MI

    The course is a hidden gem. Everything from the tee-box, fairways, traps and greens were spectacular. I highly recommend this course that is challenging but fair. You can't go wrong and of course I'll be coming back with more friends. Thanks Pigeon Creek !
  • Joanne - Barrington, IL

    What a great course!!! The greens were impeccable, the rough was challenging but so much fun. The staff was very friendly as were the people we were paired with. We loved that this course had enough challenging holes with a few friendlier ones to give you a break. We golf at least once per week and this ranks up there with the better ones we have played!!!
  • Angelica - Parma, MI

    Beautifully cared for course. Service was great. Play was quick. We would not hesitate to come back if we are in the area again.

    "I am 67 years old and have never enjoyed the game of golf more then I do now! Chase has helped me lower my score and decrease my putts a considerable amount. Looks like an old dog can learn new tricks!"
  • Chris - Pickford, MI

    The conditioning of this course exceeds expectations and the links style layout is really fun to navigate. Many holes offer risk/reward situations that will challenge even the most skilled player.
  • Marissa - Ogden, UT

    Beautiful course. It was very well maintained and it provided a lot of fun for the whole family.
