PGA TOUR | Charles Schwab Challenge

In complete control at Colonial,  Titleist Brand Ambassador Davis Riley led the field with more than 11 strokes gained tee-to-green over the four days in Fort Worth, claiming his first solo PGA TOUR title with a five-shot win over a star-studded leaderboard.

Playing a  Pro V1 golf ball  and Titleist equipment setup that includes his  TSR3 driver, T-Series irons, Vokey Design SM10 wedges and Scotty Cameron putter, Riley posted rounds 66-64-66-70 to finish the week at 13 under, the only player to reach double-digits under par.

Over the 72 holes at Colonial, Riley gained more than 3 ½ shots off the tee (+3.658/6th), nearly eight shots on approach shots (+7.869/2nd), and just under six shots on the greens (+5.921/4th) – on his way to a field-best 21 birdies.

On a firm and fast Colonial, Davis Riley was dialed in with his Pro V1, gaining +7.869 strokes on approach shots (2nd). His 68 percent greens in regulations ranked T3 for the week. Riley made the move to 2023 early last season, making the transition from Pro V1 Left Dot.

Said Riley: “There were quite a few similarities between this and the Left Dot which I like so much, but I actually saw a big improvement with this ball – I was able to achieve a higher trajectory with the longer stuff like the long irons and woods, which is what you’re looking for coming into firm greens. I was able to get that with this ball and getting more trajectory for the right reasons. Not because it’s up-shooting because of more spin. This was higher launch, but maintaining a really good spin… where you hit it just how you want, and it comes out in that window and the wind just doesn't really touch it.

“I gained one or two more miles per hour ball speed, actually, opposed to the Left Dot with the driver, which was really cool to see. Also, that dispersion came in a little bit, so I was getting kind of the best of both worlds, and it was pretty hard not to put it in when I saw that.

“I’m a small drawer of the ball, so if I’m hitting in a left to right wind, I don’t like to see the ball start right and then the wind just destroy it right. But there were a couple times this off-season I hit the [’23 Pro V1], and it just held its line so nice. That draw just held up perfectly, and it didn’t get taken away by the wind or eaten up by the wind. Just seeing that level of consistency through the wind and staying in the air for that time was really cool to see.”


Davis Riley gained the majority of his strokes this week on approach shots using a blended set of Titleist irons featuring two T-Series models and 620 MB blades.

He moved to his current setup earlier this season at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, having previously played a blended set of T100, 620 CB and 620 MB.

Riley’s new setup starts with a T200 3-iron. He then moves to T100 models in his 4-, 5- and 6-irons, and 620MB in his 7-through-9 irons. He plays Vokey Design SM10 pitching (46.10F), gap (50.08F), sand (56.08M) and lob (60.04T) wedges.

“It’s always nice having a little extra forgiveness there in the longer irons,” Riley said last season about his T100 4-iron. “It’s been a good club to have to have that extra little forgiveness when you’ve got 220 over water into a par 5 or long par 4. So just looking down at that is really good.”


Davis Riley capped off his five-shot victory at Colonial with a 6-footer for par on the 18th hole. He was locked in with his Scotty Cameron mallet all week, gaining nearly six shots (5.921/4th) on the field with his Phantom X 7.2 tour prototype.

“The way it looks, all the square lines, I feel like it frames the ball really well and just everything sits super square,’ Riley said. “I've always been a big believer in that if you're really comfortable looking over it and everything feels square, it's just going to set up for good putting. So that's what I’ve done.”
