What golf clubs and ball does Viktor Hovland use? Our in-depth review of what's in the bag of the Norwegian superstar.
Viktor Hovland became the first Norwegian to win on the European Tour with victory at the 2021 BMW International Open, holding off home favourite and Major champion Martin Kaymer to lift the trophy at Golfclub München Eichenried.
Hovland, who looks certain to be part of Padraig Harrington's European team at the Ryder Cup, has won three times since turning professional in 2019, adding the BMW title to his victories at the Puerto Rico Open and Mayakoba Golf Classic in 2020.

“I grew up watching mostly the European Tour,” the 23-year-old said. “There’s a lot of guys who played this week who I grew up watching. It’s cool to be a champion of this tour, in Germany, in a place that… it’s not in Norway, but it’s close and has some of the same feelings of being home. It’s a huge honor and finally Norway has a win on the European Tour.”
Hovland, who was playing just his second event on European soil, is a Ping staff player with hthe majority of his bag made up of the brand's clubs. However, Hovland does use a TaylorMade SIM fairway wood and swaps between his Ping G425 hybrid and a Callaway X Forged UT driving iron.
Let's take an in-depth look at what is in Hovland's golf bag for 2021.
