South Korean Jeongeun Lee6 delivered an exceptional LPGA rookie season in 2019, highlighted by her major victory at the U.S. Women’s Open in Charleston, South Carolina, and a top 10 finish at the AIG Women’s British Open. A longtime Callaway Staff Professional, Lee6 started using the Company’s clubs in 2016, and earned six wins on the Korean LPGA Tour over the next three years before moving to the LPGA.
“Callaway is a great partner, and I have so much trust in their products,” said the 26-year-old, who has three top-10 finishes so far this year. Lee6 is noted for her elite iron play and has posted the 7th most rounds in the 60’s this year. She’s also one of three players who made an ace on the same hole at the JTBC Classic in March. The strongest part of her game though is her putter, in fact she’s 2nd on Tour in Putts Per Green in Regulation and 4th in Putts Per Round.
“Consistency is extremely important in golf. Whether it’s iron or driver, I can hit it to the distance I want consistently,” Lee6 said. “What’s most important is the feel I get when the club hits the ball, from the woods down to the putter, and I really like the feel that I’m getting from my equipment.”
Here are the Callaway clubs in her bag, along with details from Lee6 on how she chooses her clubs.
WHAT’S IN JEONGEUN LEE6’S BAG
Putter: Odyssey White Hot OG 2-Ball
“I use the 2-ball putter because I like the comfort of the setup. It’s the putter that I’m the most familiar with, and it’s easy to get the distance right. I’ve been using the 2-ball since I was an amateur. There aren’t that many putters without a line, and I really like the feel when the putter hits the ball.”
Driver: Callaway Rogue ST Triple Diamond LS (9 degrees)
“I believe you need to hit the driver well to hit other clubs well too, so it’s a very important club. I’m not someone who tries to hit it as far as I can with my driver, I concentrate on the accuracy.”
Irons: Callaway Apex TCB (4-PW)
“I don’t like clubs with a big head, and I like smaller head shapes to escape the rough cleanly, which is why I use the Apex. There aren’t many times I use a 9-iron on the LPGA, but pitching wedge, 9-iron and 8-iron are clubs I use to try to get birdie opportunities.
“I use the 6-iron into par-3s a lot. It’s a long iron so I need to have more focus. I also use the 5-iron a lot on difficult shots, and it’s a club where I need to focus a bit more too. 4-iron is the most difficult iron, one that needs a lot of concentration. It’s a club with a lot of run, so I always think about the landing zone carefully when I use this club.”
Hybrids: Callaway Apex Pro (20°)
“I really like the shape of the thin head, and I can be very fine and detailed with my shot. I use the 3-hybrid to try to get easy birdie opportunities on short par-5s. 4-utility is a bit of an iffy club because 4-iron and 3-utility have a gap of over 15 meters.”
Fairway Wood: Callaway Epic Speed (15°)
“I’m using the new Rogue ST for driver and Epic Speed fairway wood. The setup is comfortable, but most importantly, I like the feel of the club hitting the ball. I use the 3-wood often for tee shots. And I consider it the most important club in long par-5s.”
