According to Swede Madelene Sagstrom, Summer is the time of the year when her game peaks. Her tied runner up at the AIG Women’s British Open in August 2021 and her performance this week at the Amundi Evian Championship, where she is currently T15 with 15 birdies and one eagle during her first three rounds are evidence of it.
With four top 10 finishes this season, at the DIO Implant LA Open (T3), Palos Verdes Championship presented by Bank of America (T9), Cognizant Founders Cup (T3), Bank of Hope LPGA Match-Play presented by MGM Rewards (T5), Sagstrom has accumulated some impressive stats, particularly with her putter, her fairway woods, and her irons.
She is number 7 on tour in driving distance (273.94 yards), number 9 in eagles (6), number 35 in rounds under par (35), number 6 in birdies (194), and number 11 in putts per ground on regulation (1.76) and putting average (29.29). These numbers have contributed to her being 32nd in the Rolex Rankings and 19th on the CME Ranking.
These are the clubs on her bag and her thoughts on her favorite equipment, including her very distinctive blue Callaway Chrome Soft Truvis ball with her initial (M), her astrological sign (Scorpio) and her favorite number (13).
WHAT’S IN MADELENE SAGSTROM’S BAG
“I have my personalized ball. I got everything that matters to me on the ball, and it is great because I can really identify it on the course. This ball is me and everyone knows Madelene plays with a blue soccer ball.”
Putter: Odyssey O-Works Marxman Black Stroke Lab Putter
“It is the best club in the bag. It is the club I rely on. If nothing works, the putter usually works. When I won in 2020 (at the Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio), I made a really good putt for an up-and-down for par on the last hole. Once again, the putter saved me there.”
Wedges: Callaway Jaws MD5 (Gap and 58 degrees)
“I have never really been a strong wedge player and that’s what I am working on. On my 58 degrees I have a celebration of Pride Month to be supportive, and then I have the yin and yang on the gap wedge because I only have two. I am guessing I am a little bit yin and yang too.”
Irons: Callaway Apex Pro (5-Pitching Wedge)
“I like my full 8 iron that goes 150 yards. That’s my solid shot. I like when the shots are on the numbers, and you can just take a free swing. I tend to go to the harder shot more often. With the long irons I am trying to get more height because I try to be a little steep on the ball.”
Utility Woods: Callaway Apex Utility Wood (23 degrees and 19 degrees)
“I hit 5 iron and hybrid to two yards on 17 on the first day at Carnoustie last year and that put me tied for the lead.”
Fairway Wood: Callaway Rogue ST LS (15 degrees)
“I like the consistency of this fairway wood, even though I don’t always hit it well, it can go straight and super far.”
Driver: Callaway Rogue ST Triple Diamond LS (10.5 degrees)
“There is a little bit of hit and hope with the driver. I do better when I swing as free as possible. This driver is so consistent event though I am having trouble hitting it in the middle of the club face. The ball flies so good. My consistency has gone up, but it is not perfect yet.”
