WITB Winner’s Bag: Akshay Bhatia, 2024 Valero Texas Open

Valero Texas Open champion Akshay Bhatia is a Callaway man through-and-through. From driver to putter to the white pearlies his caddie keeps clean all day.

At a minimum, Callaway would always own top billing with our WITB article a few times a year thanks to Rahmbo; but now that he’s taken his craft to LIV, the Akshays of the world have had to step in. The good news for Callaway: Akshay’s play this weekend should motivate every golfer out there who’s looking to improve their game to head to Roger Dunn and demo Callaway’s latest and greatest.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Akshay tees it up with a Rogue St Max driver. He may be the only player on the PGA TOUR playing that driver model. Stat wise he sits 12th on tour in total driving and 29th in accuracy. No need to change young man.
  2. Akshay plays with a hybrid – Callaway Apex UW – and a utility iron – Callaway X Forged UT. The kid who skipped college to turn pro isn’t a dummy. He’s leaning on technology to get the most out of his setup.
  3. He must be playing with Callaway wedges because they pay him. Otherwise, he’d have Vokey wedges in his bag. Right?
  4. The only thing skinnier than Akshay is the shaft in his broomstick putter. The look of that broomstick in his hand fits his fit. Just keep rollin’.
