What was is Cameron Smith’s bag for the Australian PGA?
Cameron Smith hasn’t made any surprise additions to his bag for the string of home events he has signed up for on the DP World Tour.
Smith didn’t have a great defence of the Australian PGA Championship missing the cut at the Royal Queensland Golf Club.
However, he remains among the best players in the world and there is quite a bit we can learn from what’s in his bag.
Smith has a bag that is dominated by Titleist clubs but he does have a few interesting deviations.
He favours the TS3 driver because it allows for lower spin and gives a bit more help with shot direction.
It is also a highly-customizable driver and you might get some clues on how it is set up from the video below.
He plays with the extremely popular Fujikura Ventus TR Blue 6 shafts which is a great option for pros who generate a lot of club speed.
Smith deploys an intriguing range of fairway woods and even a utility club that he switches back and forth between depending on course conditions.
Some of his options include a 15 degree Ping G430 Max as well as a 16.5 degree TaylorMade Stealth.
Also in his bag is a 7 wood, the Titleist TS2 at 21 degrees.
Then, when he doesn’t want to use the fairway wood, Smith carries a Mizuno Fli Hi, essentially a utility iron.
When it comes to irons, Smith plays with a combination of Titleist T200 and T100 clubs.
Smith had the T200 in the 4 iron in his bag for his outing in Queensland. This club is more forgiving and has a wider sole, making it a good choice for the lower lofted irons.
The T100 irons are good as all-rounders. Not quite Titleist blades but offering a mixture of performance like a distance iron with a soft feel the T100 is clean-looking and offers excellent spin for approach shots but isn’t as forgiving as the Titleist T200.
All the shafts on the Titleist irons that Smith currently has in his bag are the KBS Tour 130 X Custom series. The 130 C Custom series is designed expressly for high-swing speed players looking for a blend of control and finesse.
As a Titleist golfer Smith has access to the brilliant Vokey SM9 range of wedges. For his 60-degree wedge, Smith uses the WedgeWorks Proto 60 from Titleist.
Smith plays with the Scotty Cameron 009M putter and uses Pro V1x balls.
His bag is a lesson in finding what works for you and making changes to your equipment based on that.
Smith might not be the professional that the amateur should try to emulate when it comes to bag setup but it never hurts to experiment with something a little different.
