    How Often do you Practice Putting and How Long? 2x/ week usually about 30 minutes each time

    How many 3 putts do you average per round? 1/ round. 

    What interests you most about Exputt from what you have seen or read? The ability to practice at home and to get feedback on leaving the face open or cutting across the ball

    Speaking of Pics, who tooks those pics?  Was it someone from Titleist or a guest of yours?   Really quality shots!

    Thanks and I will definitely be posting a shot of all the new sticks! The pics were taken by Scottie Warman, find him on Insta @scottiewarman. He works in the marketing department and is a really great guy.

    @jrshields3, that bounce swing thought is a great! I think I'm going to be stealing that one. Also these different spec measurements are crazy to me.

    What a heck of a change it sounds like you went through @jrshields3. Really interested to hear how it helps your scores on the course.

    The swing thought on how to more effectively use the bounce for wedge shots is fantastic. I'll see if I can incorporate that.

     

    The use of the bounce could be the greatest tool I use from the sessions!

    I will definitely update as soon as I get my new clubs and have a chance to try them out. The measurements are crazy but I trust the process and the numbers and tighter dispersion were fantastic.

  4. Just wrapped up at TPI and what a blast!!!!! Thank you Golf Spy and Titleist. I learned a great deal, especially on the short game side and really gained some experience on how to fill the gaps in my clubs and what makes the best club.

    I will post pictures, hopefully by tomorrow. The folks at TPI were awesome and very welcoming. I didn't get to tour the club making portion due to the virus scare, but am welcomed back once this has passed for the tour so I definitely will be doing that.

    On a crazy note, my current iron setup, Mizuno JPX 919 are 1/2" over. My new setup, T200 will be a 1/2" short! When we looked at Mizuno specs compared to Titleist specs that equates to a 1 1/2" difference! The great thing I found was my dispersion so so much tighter and I lost no distance.

    More to come!

    Project X Evenflow white 1100 65g stiff

    Current Driver Swing Speed: 105 mph

    What if anything would you like to improve in regards to your driver shaft..such as more or less spin, better dispersion, more distance..etc. More distance and the ability to fully go for it without worrying it will go right ( I am a lefty)

    Do you have regular access to a Launch Monitor--Not required, but would be helpful in testing. Yes

    @jrshields3 any word from Titleist or MGS yet?  We are all very eager!! 

    I was told I should be hearing soon. I am getting some range time and course time in but work and the weather haven't been as cooperative here in No CA. Also, seeing Titleist come out with all these new offerings has me salivating! The T100s look awesome and the new T400 would be fun to see how far they go! Also, the new Scotty line and the SM8s. I will definitely post dates once I hear.

    I carry 4 wedges (PW, GW, SW, LW) but only use a couple around the green but use them all for full swing shots.  Obviously there are two choices around the green,  use lots of clubs that will get you a variety of distances or use a 1 or 2 clubs and understand how to use those clubs effectively.   I fall into the later (as I believe you do);  I want to be able to do lots with a single wedge since it enables me to get comfortable with what that wedge does and how it will react.  

    As for the fitting that is part of this thread,  how you plan to use your wedges will be a key question that needs to be asked.   My answers would be that I will use all my wedges for full swing,  I use SW and LW around the green,  and don't open them much.   

    I will be interested to see how I am fit as well. I use all my wedges as full swing options and I tend to like the Vokey 46* instead of the set PW. I use the 58* around the green and bunkers as well as full swings from less than 90 yds. I will use all around the green for different shots and try to hit to appropriate shots with wedges for full swing approaches. I have been looking at videos of testing of the new Titleist lineup and am going in with a completely open mind. 

    Should be hearing from Titleist soon to schedule my visit.

    I would like to hear how Titlist goes about doing the wedge fitting.   What are they looking for and what shots do they want you to try and hit.   Would love to have you go through the online fitting and then compare that to the results you get at your actual fitting.   

    Here's what the fitting tool says: Right numbers and grinds with the exception of the 58*, which is a custom grind T

    What  part of your bag are you most looking forward to in the fitting process, 

    I am looking forward to seeing what irons they put me in as I have never had great luck with  Titleist irons.

    Very excited for that as well! I 'll use the online fitting and post on here. You can see what I am currently playing below.
