Davis Riley What's In The Bag?

A graduate from the Korn Ferry Tour, Davis Riley has nearly got into the winner's circle a couple of times already. But what clubs does he put into play each week on the PGA Tour? Let's take a look.

Titleist TSR3

Riley currently uses a Titleist TSR3 driver which has nine degrees of loft and it is fitted with a Project X HZRDUS Green shaft. 

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, which is actually more noticeable on the TSR2. 

In testing, the numbers were extremely consistent, with the TSR3 minimising 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.

He then has one TaylorMade club in the bag as his three-wood, the Stealth Plus model which has around 15 degrees of loft and a Fujikura Ventus Black 8-X shaft. He also carries a Titleist TSR3 five-wood with around 18 degrees of loft and that also has a Fujikura Ventus Black shaft but it is the 9-X version.


Titleist T200, Titleist T100, Titleist 620CB, Titleist 620MB

He then has four different Titleist irons in the bag which is very rare out on Tour. He uses a Titleist T200 three-iron, Titleist T100 four-iron (which is actually the older model of the T100), and then his five and six-irons are Titleist 620CB's. His final iron in the bag is the 620MB and from seven-iron to nine-iron he uses that model. 


Titleist Vokey SM9

Riley uses the Titleist Vokey SM9 wedges with 46, 50, 56, 60 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.

Finally Riley uses a Scotty Cameron T7.2 Prototype putter. It has a mallet design along with plumbers neck as you can see above. We believe Riley has used a Scotty Cameron putter for many years and has used blade and mallet designs but he appears to be happy with his current model.


Titleist Pro V1

Riley 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 maximise distance and flight consistency. The cover itself is also made from a new softer, urethane elastomer for more greenside spin and control.
