  1. Brand new 35” Scotty Cameron Phantom X6 won from a member/guest open to trades but prefer $ $350 obo, will ship to anywhere in US
  2. Titleist has released their next generation of drivers with the TS2 and TS3. Let's keep all discussion and impressions of the TS2 & TS3 Drivers in this thread! https://mygolfspy.com/2019-titleist-ts2-ts3-drivers-2/
  3. Recently purchased some 5A Titleist balls on Ebay. Ordered 48 yellow AVX, every ball looked like they were fresh from package, no player marks, not even the slightest nick or scuff. Every Ball had the same number. When i questioned the vendor he said if I was nervous I could return the balls. Wwhich I did . Bought some of the new Yellow Prov 1X from another vendor. Again every ball looked just like brand new, No player marks or any evidence that had ever been hit. Cut one open and tweeted image it to #finditcutit and also to @titleist. Both vendors claim THEY do not repaint or rebrand either of these orders. It is my suspicion that they are buying new yellow unbranded balls and having the Titleist logo and info applied. Both vendors have over 1000 positive feedback. I have emailed Titleist with the vendor info for them to investigate. Bud
  4. So today culminated my couple day visit to Carlsbad, and what a way to wrap it up. I spent over 1/2 the day at TPI getting fit then meeting with some of the Titleist brand people. It was simply the best fitting experience I've ever had, and some of you know I've had some pretty darn good ones before. But from the expanse of the facility, over 30 acres of hitting areas from a 400 yard hole with actual fairway bunkers and lining it to replicate the actual teeing off on a hole, to multiple putting greens, a couple short game areas, it was incredible to take in. That's not even mentioning the full fledged fitness center inside where the performance evaluation is done. I was met at the entry by Joey, who knew my name and welcomed me and showed me to the locker room, where a locker with my name awaited. After dropping a few things off in the locker we made our way through the tour. In addition to the above, i was able to watch a bit of some ball testing that was going on...and guess what they were using a robot just like the MGS Study did. I can't say much about that testing but it was pretty cool to see the high arching perfectly struck 5 irons going 200 yards down range right at the target. Needless to say, I didn't see any more of those type shots during the day. After I got warmed up by hitting some shots with my clubs we began getting some trackman numbers. I had my usual pedestrian numbers that were as follows IRONS My current Irons G700 with Alta CB Sr Flx 1/2 over and 3 degrees up. SS 73.6 ball speed 94 mph for a 1.29 smash Spin was low at 4182 carry of 134 peak height of 68 and landing angle of 43. As has been discussed in some threads here, we amateurs often say we hit the ball too high or at the very least, high enough. Then when at times we will see numbers like that 68 feet and realize we aren't hitting it high enough. We started with the T300 and also tried the CNCPT 01. There wasn't a huge number difference in the number between the two and my contact with the T300 was much more consistent as the CNCPT has an even wider sole than the T300 and that works against me. The overall numbers for the T300 were SS 71.3 ball speed 95.1 for a smash factor of 1.33. Spin was up to 5790 carry of 136 height was 72 and landing angle of 44.5. So not a huge difference except for one area, the smash factor. If you noticed my swing speed dropped but ball speed went up a bit due to the better contact. There was a reason for the decreased ball speed. The specs of the T300 are standard length and standard lie. The 1/2 over was causing too inconsistent of a strike and i hit some shots fat, leaving them 10 or more yards short. With the stock length I was hitting it much more flush. The 2 degrees upright was causing the heel to hit the turf first on some shots, causing the face to shut down and result in a smothered pull hook. I had wondered where that shot came from on occasions..ha Glen feels as I get more confident with the T300 I might regain that 1mph or so in club speed, he sensed I was trying to be too precise in my strike with the T300. He was probably right. Going with a stock lie, again allowed for much cleaner and more consistent contact. We even flirted with a 1/2 inch SHORT shaft and 1 degree Flat. But the shaft felt a bit heavy--unbeknownst to me he had put a heavier shaft in to account for the shorter length, and there was a bit too much fade for both of our liking, So I'm now stock/stock/stock...Yee haw, that make buying selling much easier...LOL DRIVER Current Driver TS1 10.5 Fubuki 45g Sr. Flex. Most know I've loved this driver since getting it in June. I'll save all the details, It's the right driver for me, but I did better with a 9.5 loft and changed the setting from A3 to B3, which is a bit more closed. My spin in the original setup was in the mid 4500's. and too much fade. The changes lowered the spin to 2700 and was a straight to very slight cut shot. I picked up 8 yards of carry and 17 yards total. Here's the part that blew me away. Glen said to me, "You just bought a driver this summer, I don't want to tell you to turn around and buy another new one. If you will leave this driver with me, I'll find a home for it, and send you a new 9.5 out with the same shaft." He looked to see if he had a new 9.5 on hand and he didn't only the fitting ones. How awesome is that. Fairway Wood & Hybrids Current Setup G410 3,7 and 9 and 5 hybrid. Again anyone who followed my posts or progress in the PING Long Game Testing, knows how much these have helped my game this year and how confident I am in them. Well to make this section short and sweet, after gathering numbers from my 7 and 9 woods, Glen had me hit a Titleist 7 wood just for Sh$%^and Giggles, as I was getting 1.49 smash factor consistently with the 7w and my ball speed had stayed within 1.5 mph on each shot, the perfect consistency he said. So after hitting a few good shots with the TS2 7W that had pretty much identical numbers, he told me the only reason for me to get that would be if I wanted a Titleist, but said my current set up was as good as I could get. How's that for honesty, no trying to spin the numbers or tweak anything to show the Titliest is better. He just commented that I am a very good FW player and what currently have works for me. WEDGES Current SM7 54 and 58, and PING Glide 50 This one was fun and interesting. He had determined my pitching wedge distance was probably right at 100 to 105 yards based on my iron data. So we went to a different teeing area across the complex and set up on a tee box 100 yards from a flag on the front part of a green. I hit 3 very solid shots with my set PW and he was impressed. He gave me the PW to the T300 and I hit two pin high within 5 to 10 feet and pulled the third one a bit. He said enough there. ha Then we moved up about 15 yards to 85 and he gave me the GW and more of the same. I was feeling it with these wedges. Then this part was interesting. He gave me a ball told to walk up to a spot short of the green and drop the ball at a distance I get a lot of. I waked to a shot I eyed balled that I have a lot and dropped the ball. He asked what club I would hit with this shot, I said the 54 and he gave it to me, lasered it at 45 yards. He asked how I would play it, I said probably fly it 3/4 of the way and let it hit stop and release the last few yards. I hit the first two practically perfect but then I hit 3 in a row fat...egads!! He said, ok we can fix that. Then he asked me other than bunker or flop shots over a bunker what do I use the 58 for. I told him when I'm about 10 yards off the green and there is a front pin about 5 yards or so. So I like to hit a little 15 or 20 yard hit and stop shot. He said, OK I want to see that. When I hit the first two exactly as I described to 2 feet. He turned to Josh and Corey who were watching and said..."Looks whose teaching the short game clinic" So the only change we made with the wedges is he felt my 54 with the M grind and 8 degrees bounce wasn''t forgiving enough. He said to quote Bob Vokey's favorite saying..."Bounce is our friend" He said we need to go F grind and 12 degrees bounce. I hit that from the 40 yard shot and it felt much better and I didn't have any fat shots. So that concluded it. And I was pretty spent after hitting shots for going on 3 hours. But the time literally flew. We chatted a bit, then Josh and Corey took me out to what they said was a well earned lunch Best Day Ever! Here's a bunch of random shots. One thing that I failed at and anyone who has done a fitting can probably relate, and that was getting photos during the fitting. I got so wrapped up in hitting the shots then listening to Glen dissect them, I just didn't think about it. Don't know who the other two are, but that's ok, they probably had no idea who I was One of the fairways getting some early morning acquaintance An indoor hitting bay that hits out to the fairways, only used on the rare days the weather doesn't permit. A recently over-seeded fairway, they will alternate fairways to keep them all pristine. This is where they will do the 4D motion capture as part of the Performance Evaluation Fitting, 27 high speed cameras capture everything you do and the ball does These are some members of the player testing panel. Much like our Most Wanted Testing, local area guys who have signed up to come in and test new and prototype equipment and balls to give them real world feedback. So when MGS tells the doubters that they use real golfers for club tests as do most of the OEM's they meant what they say. The nicest boardroom I've ever seen. How does anyone concentrate on the meeting in a room like this...ha The most pristine putting and practice bunker green I've ever seen. The area where my fitting will be done My first target...easy eough This is taken from a balcony on top of the clubhouse area where they will entertain or just generally hang out and realize it doesn't get much better than this. My new best friend...Josh Talge VP of Marketing for Clubs Glen Mahler...the man is a legend at Titleist The obligatory Ocean View Selfie!!

  6. Is it fair to call them the No. 1 iron, driver, wedge in golf? Some notes below from a press release on just how domimate Titleist is on tour this year. PGA: It was a Titleist Brand Ambassador 1-2-3 finish at the regular season-ending Wyndham Championship, where Titleist Brand Ambassador J.T. Poston earned his first career PGA TOUR victory … Poston finished one shot clear of Webb Simpson and two better than Ben An … Viktor Hovland (Pro V1), finished solo 4th, another shot back … Closing with a career-best eight-under par 62 en route to a tournament record-tying 22-under 258 victory total, Poston became the first player since 1974 to win a 72-hole stroke-play event on tour without any bogeys or worse … Simpson fired a final round 65 to secure his runner-up finish for the second straight week, while An, who held or shared the lead after each of the first three rounds, closed with a 67. >Eleven of the 12 players who finished among the top 10 and ties trusted Titleist golf balls for their success, and so did every other player who finished in the top 35 … That’s 34 of the top 35 finishers teed up a Pro V1 or Pro V1x with so much on the line at the PGA TOUR’s regular season finale. > Poston’s win advances the 2018-19 PGA TOUR victory total for Titleist golf ball players to 23, nearly four times the nearest competitor (6) and more than all other golf balls combined … A total of 120 (77%) players teed up a Titleist at the Wyndham Championship, more than eight times the nearest competitor with 14. > What’s in the Titleist Bags of the top three finishers at the Wyndham Championship: J.T.

It is an achievement that had never been accomplished until Titleist made history by sweeping the Travelers Championship and Wichita Open in June ... The eight major tee-through-green equipment categories include golf balls, drivers, fairway metals, hybrids, utility irons, irons, wedges and putters ... The recently introduced T100 irons were the most played single model at the event with 15 sets in play, while the TS3 driver was the field favorite with 34. > At the Wyndham Championship, Titleist was the top choice across every category for the 11th time this year ... The other tournaments in which Titleist has topped every major equipment category include: 3M Open, Rocket Mortgage Classic, Travelers Championship, AT&T Byron Nelson, Wells Fargo Championship, Corales Puntacana Championship, Valspar Championship, Honda Classic, Farmers Insurance Open and Sony Open in Hawaii ... This marks the fourth time on the Korn Ferry Tour that Titleist has swept the counts.
  7. So my two favorite golf destinations are Whistling Straits and Pinehurst. I've been lucky enough to visit both multiple times. I was doubly lucky that one of the trips to Pinehurst in 2016 was as part of the Team Titleist event, which I chronicled here, right after I joined the site. Well I'll complete the TeamTitleist DoubePlay....if you will, this week. On Wednesday I'll be headed to Kohler to spend three days and nights with some great TeamTitleist members that I have met over the years at the events, and several members of Titleist staff. They are litteraly among the best people in the industry that I've met and put on a great event for the attendees. Highlights this year will include: Playing Blackwolf Run--Home of a couple of Women's US Opens Playing WS Straits course, site of the 202 Ryder Cup and has hosted the PGA Championship three times! An afternoon demo/fitting session of the entire Titleist line, including the new T Series irons and TS FW's and Hybrids Titleist Ball Fitting and Demo A hands on instructional clinic from Cameron McCormick Based on previous events..A huge bag full of Titleist and Team Titleist swag And best of all three days of meals and great memories with other passionate golfers! And probably unfortunately spending more money than I need to in the pro shop on 2020 Ryder Cup merchandise I'll be filling this thread as much as I can with pictures throughout the three days starting tomorrow.
  8. I'm listing a MINT TS2 with a brand-new Accra TZ5, 75g M5 shaft, standard length. The original driver was $499 and I added the shaft for $310. I estimate the driver head has launched ~25 tee shots. I had some pro-shop money expire end of 2018, so I picked up the TS2 head. I got fit for the Accra shaft about a month ago and it's been collecting dust on the TS2 since. Decided to stick with my trust 915d2 from college. This thing is sick. Please feel free to shoot me any questions. $525 - Looking to sell full set-up.
  9. It’s been a while since I posted but it’s time to update what is in my bag for my first season of professional golf. There are definitely some improvements that I’m looking forward to but overall I’m pretty happy with my bag so far.

  10. I went through a club fitting from March to early May, tried Ping, Callaway, Taylormade, and Titleist with trackman and shotscope. I went full bag except 3 wood and putter, so my bag now has: Titleist TS3 Driver 9.5 degree, hzrdus smoke 6.0 shaft Cleveland Launcher 15 degree 3 wood/metal Titleist 818 H1 19 degree hybrid, Tensei red 70hy stiff shaft Titleist 718 AP3 irons 4-PW, Project X LZ Shafts 120g, stiff flex Vokey SM7 48 degree F GRIND, Vokey SM6 52 degree F GRIND, and Vokey 56 degree M GRIND Ping B60 putter

  13. Not sure if anyone else has heard this yet or not, but I have been told that the new 720 irons (or whatever Titleist decides to call them) is set to release this August (2019). If so, I would totally expect to start seeing the announcements right before either the Masters or the recently moved PGA Championship. Anyone else have more info??
  14. Press Release from Titleist TITLEIST EQUIPMENT UPDATE: The Honda Classic According to Darrell Survey, for the third time this season, Titleist achieved the feat of sweeping every major equipment category at a PGA TOUR event - this time it is The Honda Classic - and by looking at the counts, the choice is overwhelmingly clear.

  17. One of the areas we are going to strive to bring more information to the forum in the new year will be news from all the tours, both equipment news and anything else that we think is interesting or noteworthy. But since most of us are here because we are equipment nerds, we'll try and focus on that mainly. And I want to bring you more than just a simple WITB posting after a tour event, sure we have have that as well, but the goal is to go a bit deeper and provide more info than you'd normally see. As such, we've reached out to all the OEM's to supply us with any tour news they have on a regular basis. In full disclose for simplicity sake many times, it will be just publishing a press release they have sent out. Some OEM's may be better at this than others, so we just want to make it understood, it's not favoring any particular company but just an effort to provide the forum with as much info as you care to see from each company on it's equipment news/counts for the week. So with the PGA Tour on break until January, we have some info from the European and Japan Tours provided by Titleist. Quite honestly, I found some of this info surprising as well as interesting. I always knew they dominated the ball market on tour, but the numbers are pretty eye opening, as well as it's performance in the club counts as well. Feel free to chime in with your thoughts on this an all other info we post here going forward. I know most of us that are avid golfers don't necessarily make our club/ball purchasing decisions based on tour usage, but if nothing else, it'll make for some good conversation. edit: Sorry for the PDF I couldn't get it to save as a Pic for some reason. Titleist Tour Counts Week of Nov 25.txt Adding another count chart. I found two things interesting on this one. 2018COUNTS.pdf 1) On the PGA Tour Bridgestone has only 3% of the ball share, but yet had 13% of PGA Tour wins on the season. I guess you could call that the Bryson effect with a little help from Tiger. 2) Also the Australasian Tour Titleist had 100% of the wins. There was some presences from the other companies in play, but all 13 victories went to Titleist.
  18. I tested the new TS3 last weekend with the Hazardous smoke X stiff shaft. I think i'm going to get one. Anyone else have one yet? What do you think?

  20. I got a sleeve of golf balls yesterday from Titleist. According to the included letter, they're the new 2019 Titleist ProV1's. Anyone else get some of these babies?!? I've run some numbers on it against the Snell MTB Black's. The 6-iron numbers look like this: Snell MTB: ClubSpeed: 87, PTI/SmashFactor: 1.39, Ballspeed: 120, Launch 19.5, Backspin 5885, Sidespin 198, Carry 172, Roll 10, Total 182. 2019 ProV1 ClubSpeed 86, PTI/SmashFactor: 1.39, BallSpeed: 120, Launch 20.3, Backspin 5830, Sidespin 523, Carry 172, Roll 10, Total 182. When I originally ran tests earlier this year on my launch monitor, the Snell MTB Black outperformed the 2017 ProV1's. Looks like Titleist is paying attention and the new ball is performing better than ever. Performance with Snell is now equal! Cost being a factor (ProV1~$48-$54 vs Snell ~$27-$32 shipped), Snell MTB Black is still my ball of choice. Very preliminary numbers, using 5 solid shots measured with my 6-iron. I've yet to test it with my wedge or driver. Just thought some may be interested... -- P.J.
  21. So I'm trying to fund my purchase of the new TS lineup of woods from Titleist. Mrs. Nut says I have to sell off some equipment before I can buy anything new. Up first: Titleist D3 with either Rogue Max, Diamana White ... asking $200. Very good condition, as is all my Titleist clubs. Few marks on the crown from bag chatter but clean otherwise. Next we have the Callaway GBB Epic Sub-Zero with either Rogue Max or PX Yellow 6.0. Very clean club, no marks anywhere. Asking $225 OBO Finally we have the Srixon 565. This was a test for me that didn't pan out. Asking $150 Any questions or need additional pics, let me know. Thanks for looking. Golfinnut

  24. New AVX is really something else. Long off the tee, very soft and what you'd expect from a premium Titleist ball around the greens. Really interested to see where this ball will fall in line with the 1/1X. Possibly their new flagship?? Anyone had a chance to try it? For now, its only available in Arizona, California and Florida as a test market. Here's a look inside the ball at the 3-piece layer construction:
  25. WARNING: This is a somewhat lengthy post wherein I simply discuss some equipment changes and the reason behind them. I offer some data, but don't dive into launch monitor numbers or anything like that. I'm simply utilizing what knowledge I possess to make the game more enjoyable for myself and wanted to share my experience. Read on and comment if you'd like. I've been quite happy with my bag for some time now despite knowing that I've given up some distance and certain other luxuries. Finally, I decided it was time for a change and wanted to start with the driver. My Nike Vapor Pro w/ Aldila RIP a 60 shaft has been an absolute fairway finder compared to the drivers it replaced, but ball speed has always been a touch low. Having worked part-time at a golf course for 8 months gave me some time to demo a few clubs and I was impressed with the latest crop of Ping drivers. Of course, I don't have a ton of money to spend on equipment right now, but the pro had a Ping G LS Tec in 9* w/ Tour 65 Stiff shaft and sold it to me at his cost. I tried the G400 LST with the same shaft and it seemed like a real bomber so the G should be just as good. My mistake. My experiment with the Ping G failed miserably as it seemed to just spin too low and drop out of the air. During a test round where I alternated between my gamer and the G on each hole, the G found 1/7 (14%) fairways with a maximum total distance of 247 yards and an average of 232. Meanwhile, my Vapor managed 5/7 (57%) fairways with a max of 282 and an avg of 245. As it happens, slow play caused me to join up with a twosome on the 11th hole and one of the gentlemen offered to let me try his G25 after describing my experience with the G. I don't know what loft he handed me or what flex the shaft was - just that it was the stock TFC 189. It took one swing for me to realize that not only was the G a mistake, but my trusted Vapor as well. Fast forward a little bit and the G is gone - sold on eBay and shipped it off just today - and I have a 9.5* G25 sitting in my bag with the TFC 189 in stiff flex and an Aldila RIP a 60 to experiment with as well. I took the G25 out on Wednesday and played 18 - 9 holes with the TFC and 9 holes with the Aldila. Over 18 holes I managed 9/14 (64%) fairways with a max of 299 (off the very first tee in soft conditions) and an avg of 253. Looking at each shaft individually, I hit one more fairway with the Aldila than with the TFC, but average distance with the stock shaft was 266 yards vs. 241. More surprising to me was how incredible the TFC felt throughout the swing and at impact compared to the Aldila that I'm so fond of in my Vapor Pro. In keeping with the theme of mistakes I've made, I've never been satisfied with my Vapor Flex fairway wood and the Vapor Flex hybrid has been touch and go since day one. So, now on order is a Titleist 906F2 w/ Alidla NV 75 Stiff (best fairway I've ever owned and should not have gotten rid of) as well as a Titleist 585 hybrid w/ NV 85 (testing required but definitely prefer the feel over my Nike). To top it all off, i have finally decided to make the switch from Game Golf Live to Arccos 360. I've long held the position that I would never use Arccos as long as it required having my phone on me at all times, but I've grown tired of waiting for Game Golf to release the new "Pro" version or even release more details. Likewise, their user interface for both the app and the website have gotten long in the tooth. So that's it. Those are the changes I will be making and hopefully this is the setup I will continue to play until I can finally afford to get custom fit for a complete new set. Staying in the bag are my Vapor Pro Combo irons (4-PW), Vokey SM5 wedges (52, 56, 60), and my beloved Scotty Futura 6M. Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed!
