Hey Team Titleist - As #TSProject fittings begin across the nation this week, I wanted to share a quick excerpt from our friend Jordan Griggs of The Dapper Drive, who went through a tee-to-green fitting at Manchester Lane a few weeks ago.
Jordan chronicles his full fitting experience on his blog, but we wanted to share an excerpt specifically from his TS metals fitting to see the difference he found in his game.
"I was super excited to try the TS2, but before we started ripping Titleist’s newest driver technology, I hit 10 or so drives with my current setup. Chris analyzed the Trackman numbers, but also paid close attention to ball flight on both misses and well struck shots.
He immediately noticed that the ball flight seemed a little flat, falling from the sky quicker than expected. It wasn’t overly obvious, but I too had felt like this was a struggle for me. Not surprisingly to him, my launch angle and spin rate were too low, resulting in lost carry distance. The low spinning head combined with an extra-stiff, super low spin shaft I currently had in the bag was simply not the right combo for me. Rather than the 1,600 rpm rate I was seeing, we needed driver spin to be closer to 2,500 – 3,000 rpm.
I then switched over to the Titleist TS2 and sampled a few different shafts. After hitting 3 or 4, we landed on a setup that had me launching it higher and achieving a spin rate right around 2,600 rpm. Boom. The result was an additional 9 yards of carry, and a much tighter shot pattern with the TS3. Ahh, the benefits of a club fitting!"
To read about the rest of Jordan's fitting and his Titleist Manchester Lane experience, head over to The Dapper Drive blog. And if you haven't signed up for a #TSProject fitting, find a golf club fitting event here. Thanks to Jordan for visiting us at Manchester Lane and we look forward to seeing your final setup!
