Cameron Smith What's In The Bag?

Since 2017, Cameron Smith has established himself among the top professional ranks. He picked up his first PGA Tour victory in 2017 and then claimed the Australian PGA Championship, which he would defend the following year. 

In 2022, he has enjoyed his best season to date, with the Australian picking up the Sentry Tournament of Champions and The Players Championship, before securing one of the biggest prizes of them all, The 150th Open Championship. In this piece, we take a look at the clubs in his bag. 


What Driver does Cameron Smith use?

Titleist TSR3 Driver Review

The Australian is currently a Titleist Brand Ambassador and has been for the entirety of his professional career. Smith has almost a full bag of Titleist clubs and also plays a Titleist golf ball. He was previously playing the Titleist TSi3 driver before the TSR range was launched in 2022. Initially Smith gamed the TSR2 with a Fujikura Ventus Blue 6 X shaft but he switched to the TSR3 driver which is more closely aligned with his old TSi3 model. 

The TSR3 head is the most adjustable of the three TSR models, with a moveable weight in the back of the head. We’re big fans of the TSR3 as not only is it perhaps the best Titleist driver, in our view it is one of the best drivers out there full stop. Titleist are expected to be launching a new range of drivers later in 2024 so it will be interesting to see whether Smith and other Titleist staff players like Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth will change to the newer models.


What Fairway Wood does Cameron Smith use?

Smith was carrying a TSi2 three-wood with a Fujikura Ventus Blue 8 X shaft, but this has since come out for a Ping G430 Max model with the same loft and shaft. The G430 Max is one of the best fairway woods we have tested thanks to its versatility and high launch characteristics.

The 2022 Champion Golfer of the Year also carries a Titleist TS2 seven-wood with a UST Elements Red 8F5 (X) shaft. Both sit a degree upright, which we believe helps with the gapping of his yardages.

Smith doesn't always use the seven-wood in competition, occasionally switching it out for a Titleist U500 3-iron, depending on course conditions. "I’ll switch [the U500] in and out with the 7-wood if I need something off the tee that just kind of gets going and finds the fairway every time. The 7-wood is more for if there are a few longer par-5s where I’m going to hit the 7-wood into the green a few times,” said Smith.


What Irons does Cameron Smith Use?

As for his irons, Smith has had the same setup for a while now, which is a black set of the 2021 Titleist T100's (four-iron to nine-iron), which are all fitted with True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 Black Onyx shafts. If you may be wondering why he uses black clubheads, it is because “the black looks a lot tighter and it keeps a little bit of the shine off,” says Smith. Interestingly Smith has also shown a willingness to carry a Mizuno Pro Fli-Hi three-iron which he used a lot at the 2022 Open Championship.


What Wedges does Cameron Smith use?

Smith carries wedges and he uses the extremely popular Titleist Vokey SM9’s. His lofts are 46, 52, 56 models and 60 degrees. We will keep an eye to see if, like many other Titleist staffers, Smith upgrades to the Vokey SM10 wedges at some point this year. 

On his previous set of SM8's he had them stamped with different words. On his 52-degree he had the word 'Struth' stamped on the back, and on his 60-degree, he had, 'The man, the myth, the mullet', due to his fantastic hair-do. Given his success, we might expect his new set to have the same stamps on them but we are yet to confirm this.


What Putter does Cameron Smith use?

Smith is known for being one of the best putters in the game but for several years he chopped and changed putters. Previously, he used a Scotty Cameron Futura 5W putter, which is a model Justin Thomas has used before. Smith has also putted with the black TFB 1.5 Teryllium model, as well as the Scotty Cameron T-11.5 prototype. Eventually he settled on the Scotty Cameron 009 Prototype, once again in a black finish. 


What Golf Ball does Cameron Smith use?

Smith uses the iconic Titleist Pro V1x, one of the best golf balls on the market.  “I think the biggest thing for me with the new ball is the cover and the stickiness it gives me around the greens. I feel as though I can hit a lot of different scoring shots into and around the green," said Smith.

“For me, when I tested it, it was a bit hotter off the driver, which was great. The windows were great. The spin was still the same. The irons were basically the same which I love. But for me, the biggest thing that stuck out was the control coming out of the rough and around the greens. So like inside 40, 50 yards, just the stickiness of it. I feel as though I can control my shots, especially those difficult, soft shots."

“I’ll always put it straight in the bag. I trust what they’re doing with it. After a couple of tournaments I’m always comfortable in knowing what it will do. I’ve been playing the Pro V1x since I was about 15 years old and never changed. I love how it spins around the greens.”


What Shoes does Cameron Smith wear?

Smith is always one of the most smartly dressed golfers in the field and even though it is not the most recognized apparel brand, Smith has been with Original Penguin for a number of years and it’s easy to see why, as they make some of the best golf polo shirts and golf shorts

Smith’s shoes are made by FootJoy and he often wears the Packard design which came ever so close to getting five stars from us. We felt the shoes can offer a degree of style to any outfit whilst the grip, stability and comfort is right up there with the best of them.
