We review Viktor Hovland’s golf clubs, balls and apparel.
What golf clubs and balls does Viktor Hovland use? Our in-depth look back at what’s in the Norwegian superstar’s pocket.
Viktor Hovland was the first Norwegian to win the European Tour by winning the BMW International Open in 2021, battling home favorites and major champion Martin Kaymer for the trophy at the Munich Eichenried Golf Club.

Hovland, who is sure to be part of Padraig Harrington’s European team at the Ryder Cup, has won three times since his career in 2019, adding the BMW title to his victories at the Puerto Rico Open and Mayakoba Golf Classic in 2020.

“I grew up and mostly saw the European Tour,” said the 23-year-old. “There are a lot of guys that played this week that I grew up with. It’s cool to be a champion on this tour, in Germany, in a place that is… not in Norway, but close by and has the same feeling of being at home. It’s a great honor and Norway finally has a victory on the European Tour. “
Hovland, who has only held his second event on European soil, is a ping employee, with the bulk of his bag made up of the brand’s clubs. However, Hovland uses a TaylorMade SIM fairway wood and trades between his Ping G425 Hybrid and a Callaway X Forged UT Driving Iron.
Let’s take a closer look at what’s in Hovland’s golf bag for 2021.
