Honey Baisoya has been burning it up on the course in recent tournaments. We took a peek at his clubs on Wednesday at the TATA Open:
Driver – Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 9 degrees, set a degree stronger and at a draw bias with a Tour AD MD 6X shaft which is an inch longer than standard tour length.
3 wood – Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 816, 14 degrees set to 13 degrees at neutral setting.
2 hybrid – Callaway RAZR X TOUR standard tour model.
Irons: 3-PW – Ping iSeries irons with Project X 6.5 shafts with standard Ping slim grips.
54 and 60 degree wedges – Cleveland RTX 3 wedges with low bounces and True Temper Dynamic Gold wedge flex shafts.
Putter – Titleist Scotty Cameron Newport Select 2.5.
*Accurate as of the 2016 TATA Open
Honey likes to hit a high draw with all his clubs, he says he cannot go away from that shot no matter what the course type/setup/conditions might be. He averages 295 yards off the tee and likes to see the ball land softly on all his shots.
His favourite club in the bag is his driver which he has had in the bag since the middle of last season. Honey is foregoing a bit of distance off the tee in favour of accuracy and consistency.

Growing up, Honey would spend maximum of his time hitting his woods, so much so that he would hit 50 balls with his driver and 50 balls with the rest of his clubs.
His hybrid is a special club for him. He took Rashid Khan’s hybrid for a tournament in Thailand and he loved the control and distance it had to offer. He got home and bought an identical one for himself. He does not see himself changing the club for another couple of seasons atleast.
His putter has been the biggest difference for him. He has seen a notable change in his performances on the greens and an upturn in his overall game since he started using his current putter. He likes how it sits behind the ball and it gives him confidence to know that he can hole putts with it at any given point.
He has had his irons and putter in the bag since the 2015 CG Open and cannot see them being replaced in the near future.
