More About What's in Davis' Bag

Posted: November 19, 2008

Davis Love IIIDavis Love III's golf equipment is similar to the man himself, in that "what you see is what you get." He doesn't have the club builders do a lot of custom grinding, nor are his specs far from standard; his bag is pretty plain vanilla.

His driver is the new 909D3, 8.5°. It contains a UST Proforce V2 76g shaft in an X flex, and the finished length is 45" with a swingweight of D-5. Not surprisingly, his F3•05 (13°) and 906F3 (18°) prototype fairways are similar, both with UST Proforce V2 86g shafts in X flex and D-5 swingweights.

Sometimes Davis replaces the 18° fairway with a 2-iron depending on course set up and conditions. That 2-iron matches the rest of his 680 forged iron set (3-9). The heads are standard, the shafts are Dynamic Gold X-100s. The length is 1/4" longer than standard and all the lies are 1° flat.

DL3 carries 3 Vokey Design wedges. His pitching wedge is a 250-08 in tour chrome and like all three of his wedges, has a Dynamic Gold X-100 shaft cut to 1/2" over standard. Davis' sand wedge is a bit customized in that he started with a raw finish Vokey 456-10 and had it bent to 55° of loft and 9° of bounce. His lob wedges is a 60° with a standard E grind and raw finish.

True to his Tarheel roots, all of Davis Love's clubs have "Carolina Blue" Golf Pride New Decade grips, 60 Round put on upside down (logo underneath).

Thanks for the info on DL III's clubs.  Can you give us some detailed info on the Cameron putter he has in the bag.

Davis has recently been using a Tour Newport Select at 34.5" and 69° lie with 3° loft, finished with a red Studio Design grip.

Thanks for sharing those detailed specifications on DLIII's clubs.  We love the details of length, lie angles swingweight and grip size.  Are the 680s still being produced for DLIII and Charlie Hoffman or are they playing old production models?

Ashraf Nasser


Our Tour department keeps an inventory of out-of-production models for players still using those models.

Interesting that DL3's irons are 1 degree flat. For such a tall guy (6' 3"?) with what appears to be a somewhat upright swing, I would've expected upright irons. Any insight you can give us? Thanks.

Hi, I have an S82 tour bag and have noticed a few tour players with a lightweight rain hood.  Are these items available to buy? I love the space the bag provides but the standard hood is a little bulky. Keep up the good work - love the products and the blog.

Just another example of the number of factors, aside from height of the player, that go into getting properly fit for golf clubs. Davis has fairly long arms, which help him get tremendous width in his swing and therefore plenty of clubhead speed and length. And despite what may appear to be an upright swing, his angle of attack is actually pretty shallow.  Both of these factors help explain the slightly flat lie angle on his irons.

It is likely that these rain hoods come from a third party manufacturer.

The rain hood does have the Titleist logo.  Is it possible you would logo something different if a Tour player was using it?

I spoke with our Director of Accessories, and she informed me that the rain hood you saw probably came from a company called <a href="www.seaforthraingear.com/" rel="nofollow">Seaforth Rain Gear</a> out of Canada.  The Seaforth Rain Hood is widely used on the PGA Tour, and they work closely with the company that manufactured our prior generation staff bags.
