Cameron Young What's In The Bag?

A rising star in the world of golf, Cameron Young is currently a Titleist staff player and plays a full bag of clubs from the brand including a golf ball. What are the exact specifications? Let's take a look below.

Driver

Titleist TSR3

Starting at the top of the bag Young uses a Titleist TSR3 driver and it has 9 degrees of loft with a Mitsubishi Tensei 1K White 70 TX shaft. He had been using the TSi3 model to great effect but like many other Titleist staff players the newer design has gone into the bag. This change happened around the 2022 Open Championship, an event Young nearly won. 

The TSR3 features the classic-shaped head at address, with the main aim of the driver being to make it faster through the air. Titleist have done this by installing a smoother sole, smaller hosel opening and a taller back section. In testing, the numbers were extremely consistent, with the TSR3 minimizing drop offs in speed even from off-centre strikes. However, it's the playability that is the most impressive aspect, as it is the easiest driver to manipulate the flight of.

Fairway Woods

Young then carries two Titleist fairway woods, one of which is a TSR2+ model which acts as his three-wood, and then a regular TSR2 as his five-wood. The Plus version was a new addition to the Titleist TSR wood family. Designed as an option for those who want a fairway wood as predominantly a second driving option, it is being billed as a “longer, more forgiving, tee-biased 3-wood.”

The regular TSR2 model strikes the balance between the TSR3 and TRS2+, with it providing a mixture of distance and forgiveness. Feel and acoustically wise it has a slightly lower pitched impact sound and a very satisfying ‘crack’ through impact. What's more, it's very easy to launch and extremely consistent. We believe both of these woods are fitted with Mitsubishi Tensei 1K White 80 TX shafts.

Irons

Titleist T100, Titleist 620 MB

His iron setup is pretty interesting at the moment. We believe he is carrying a Titleist T100 four and five-iron, and the rest of his irons go from six-iron down to nine-iron and are Titleist 620MB's. They are all fitted with Nippon N.S. Pro Modus3 130 X shafts. 

Titleist’s real players’ iron, the 620MB is a one-piece forged muscleback that delivers sleek and simple looks as well as tremendous feel and feedback. The muscleback design produces a tour-proven flight that is workable and controllable. The Centre of Gravity locations have been designed to allow for shot-making and to deliver responsive feedback.

Wedges

Young uses four Titleist wedges at the moment. His first three, 48, 52 and 58 degrees, are all Vokey SM9's whilst he also carries a WedgeWorks BV 2022 Proto with 62 degrees of loft.

The SM9 is a case of evolution rather than revolution from the SM8 but Titleist says it has developed the groundbreaking Progressive Centre of Gravity (CG) design to improve distance and trajectory control. In testing, we found it very easy to square-up on full shots and deliver excellent consistency of spin and flight from closer to the green.

Putter

Scotty Cameron T5 Prototype

His final club in the bag was a Scotty Cameron T11 Prototype but this has been replaced by a T5 Prototype instead. It appears to have a mallet kind of design with a plumbers neck and it appears he carries a grey version as well as a black design. We think the grey version is his usual gamer when competing. 

Ball

Titleist Pro V1

Young uses a Titleist Pro V1 golf ball. With its biennial upgrade, the design got several significant changes made to it, such as the new reformulated 2.0 ZG Process Core which was implemented with more distance in mind. Additionally the cover was noticeable when we first got our hands on some. 

The dimple count increased from 352 to 388 following extensive trials and testing to maximize distance and flight consistency. The cover itself is also made from a new softer, urethane elastomer for more greenside spin and control.
