CC Sabathia, former left-handed pitcher for the Cleveland Guardians, Milwaukee Brewers and New York Yankees, played alongside Scottie Scheffler and Corey Conners in Wednesday’s Pro-Am at the BMW Championship.
Speaking with GolfWRX.com on Wednesday, Sabathia, a six-time MLB All-Star and World Series champion (2009), revealed that he started playing golf after he retired from baseball in 2019.
Sabathia says that his 15-handicap is steadily improving, and he unleashes serious power when he puts the ball on the center of the clubface with his 6-foot-6-inch frame.
What's in CC Sabathia's golf bag?
He’s had several golf club fittings throughout his first 3-4 years playing the game and he plays a mixed set of clubs from various companies. Sabathia’s equipment setup is highlighted by large grips – for his otherworldly large hands – as well as stiff shafts to suit his high swing speed and force.
He said the only thing he’s missing in his bag is a reliable fairway wood. At the moment he relies on his trusty PXG hybrid that he’s used for years (and the worn-out club is proof that he’s hit hundreds, if not thousands, of golf balls with it). Sabathia also uses blacked-out Titleist Vokey wedges, which are custom-stamped with his playing jersey No. 52, and a unique, all-carbon LA Golf putter.
