It took five extra holes, but Cameron Davis secured his maiden PGA Tour win on Sunday in Detroit. Here is what the New South Welshman had in the bag at the Rocket Mortgage Classic.

- Davis is a superb ball striker and although he missed six greens on both Saturday and Sunday, his talent with the irons was on display earlier in the week. The 2017 Australian Open champion missed just five greens during the first two rounds and hit a number of great approaches during the play-off, ranking fourth for Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green for the week. Davis has always been a blade iron user, while generally carrying a utility iron of sorts. The Aussie’s 3-iron is the new T200 model from Titleist that is yet to be released and first appeared on Tour at last week’s Travelers Championship.
- Ranking 10th for driving distance for the week, Davis adds yet another win for Titleist’s TSi drivers across the world’s premier Tours. Like the majority of his PGA Tour brethren, the 26-year-old favours the TSi3 model, which like most of his previous drivers is equipped with a UST Mamiya shaft.
- Typically playing a very similar style of clubs throughout the bag from year-to-year featuring new models with a few exceptions, including Davis’ putter. Something special for equipment aficionados, Scotty Cameron’s Timeless model is a classic Newport 2 shape putter with extremely clean lines made from high quality stainless steel, the blade quite a different to the mallet model he won the Australian Open with at The Australian Golf Club in 2017.
Starting his golf at Roseville Golf Club in Sydney’s north before joining Monash Country Club, Davis was part of an all Titleist golf ball sudden death play-off at Detroit Golf Club. His win is also the 20th from 28 events for Titleist’s Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls in 2021 on the PGA Tour.
“It's still so surreal for me. I've been in some good positions before, but to play the golf that I played coming down the stretch was just awesome.” – Cam Davis.
