Inside the Bag: Cameron Young's TSi Driver

If you’ve been following the Tour closely this season, you’ll have seen the name of the Rookie Cameron Young, who’s carded two top 10 finishes this season, highlighted by a runner-up performance at The Genesis Invitational.

And while Cam is solid from tee-to-green, leading all PGA TOUR rookies in FedEx Cup standings, he’s generating buzz around his powerful swing that brings him both distance and accuracy off the tee:

  • Yardage covered by drive on par 4's and 5's | 67.6% | Ranked #1
  • SG: Off the Tee | .837 strokes | Ranked #2
  • Longest Drives | 413 yards | Ranked #2
  • Average Ball Speed | 186.42 mph | Ranked #3
  • Average Club Head Speed | 124.04 mph (#1 Fastest Individual Speed at 130.04 mph) | Ranked #4
  • Driving Distance | 319.2 yards | Ranked #5
  • Birdie Average | 4.79 | Ranked #11
  • Birdie or Better | 9.3% of holes played this season | Ranked #12
  • Top 20 Total Driving

We caught up with Titleist Tour Rep, JJ Van Wezenbeeck to get the story on Cam’s TSi3 driver and the adjustments they’ve made this season:

“Cameron’s previous driver settings provided a slightly closed face and heel-biased weighting to encourage face closure and prevent the occasional blocked shot that resulted from his pronounced inside-to-out swing path. As his swing path neutralized following off-season work with his instructor/dad (David Young – Head Golf Professional at Sleepy Hollow Country Club), that face closure assistance turned Cameron’s miss from a block to a pull. Working with Cameron at Torrey Pines, we went to the new setup with a more open face and shifted the CG closer to the middle to better match Cameron’s more neutral swing path,” Van Wezenbeeck said. 

Said Young on his TSi3 driver: “I’ve definitely picked up a mile per hour or two. It spins a little bit less for me and it just keeps the misses straighter. It doesn’t curve as much. I think it’s more rewarding for me when I hit one how I mean to, the shapes come out more how I mean, and it’s just more rewarding in terms of it being a little hotter and just going a little farther.”
