  1. The set up T100s: 7-48* T200: 4,5,6 Project X LZ 6.5 (x-flex) 125g 2* upright Tour velvet. T100s (7,8,9,P,G) I was first drawn to the T100s because these irons look so freaking clean. I had no intention of buying a set, I just wanted to try and hit a club that I thought was out of my league. What I found however, was a relatively forgiving and extremely fun to hit set. To clarify, when I say forgiving, I don't mean your miss hits will be knocking down flags, and I don't mean your chunked shots will still be pin high. What I DO mean, is that if you catch it a little thin, or a bit on the toe, you're still gonna be in the hole. You may have to make a long putt or get up and down to save par, but you'll still be in play. its forgiving for the type of iron that it is. what I like most about these irons is the distance control. The speed feels consistent across the face (gross miss hits not included) and i have yet to have a ball rocket over the green because a particularly "hot" part of the club face. I was also impressed with how well the club moved through the turf, especially coming from a much wider soled set (jpx 825) If i had to nitpick the only compliant I have is that the pw and gw are 44 and 48, respecticly. I would have preferred 45 and 50. And i know the t100 is close to that, and I know I can bend them, but then we are messing the bounce, yadda yadda yadda. Final though on the T100s, they feel and look great, and if you are stuck between GI and players iron, I would suggest at the very least giving the T100s a few swings. T200 (4,5,6) The decision to use the T200 for the longer irons was a result of having a frank discussion with myself about my own skill level. The heads are a little bigger, soles wider, and they resist face manipulation a bit more. Couple that with stronger lofts and a hotter face and they fit the bill for what i need in my longer irons. Having never gamed the t200 short irons I can only speculate, but I don't know if I'd like the hotter face in my short irons. I did try the t200 and t100 7 irons back to back, and the extra pop from the T200 is very noticeable. The T200 also made painful noise on miss-hits, but its a small price to pay for keeping it in play. The Combo Set I am a huge fan of the split set, and am glad I went this route. There is no reason to have irons in your bag that you don't feel confident with. For me this meant using longer irons I know will launch high enough and straight enough, and shorter irons that are consistent and predictable. closing I think the T100s and the T200 are solid clubs, and i would recommend trying them if you are in the market for new irons.
  2. Alright guys, tell me what you think of this setup! Really liking this set, but may take out the T-100 irons for Mizuno MP20 blades in the 6-P and HMB in 4-5.
  3. Its been awhile but its finally time for me to post an update to my WITB for my 2nd year as a Professional. NOTE* I will be testing the HONMA TR20 440 DRIVER so come join the thread & see if it will be helping me win some tournament money this year or if it gets left in the car. Current Bag & Specs are the following: Driver: Titleist TS3 8.5* - Diamana D+Plus Limited Edition 70X, Tipped 1" 3 Wood: Titleist TS3 14.25* - Diamana D+Plus Limited Edition 80X Driving Iron: Titleist U500 17* - HZRDUS Smoke 90X Long Irons (4-6): Titleist T100S (21*, 25*, 29*) - KBS C-Taper 130X Short Irons (7-PW): Titleist 620MB (33*, 37*, 41*, 45*) - KBS C-Taper 130X 50* Wedge: Vokey SM7 F.12 - DG X100 55* Wedge: Vokey SM7 S.11 - DG X100 60* Wedge: Vokey SM7 M.08 - DG X100 Putter: Evnroll ER2 - P2 Aware Tour Ball: Titleist ProV1 Yellow #3 Glove: Under Armour Strikeskin Tour Bag: Titleist Hybrid 14
  4. So I recently had 2 fittings: T100 Pw-6 + T200 5-4 w/ px 6.0 T100S Pw-4 w/ px 6.0 + 50* SM8 w/ px 6.0 The T100 5-4 irons are the same lofts as the T200 6-5 irons. Would the T200 6-5 irons 0.50" longer fit the gap better than the T200 5-4 bent? Obviously it would be so weird having two 6 irons but I am just curious if anyone has tested this at all? Or would bending the T200 5-4 irons be a better option? Another option would obviously be to just go with the stronger lofted T100S so that the T200 fits in easier or just go full T100S, I just don't need to hit it any further and I would have to re gap my wedges. Thoughts? note: Currently playing R9 TP irons which are 1* weaker than the regular t100's. R9 TP also has more forgiving 5-4 irons which is why I kind of like the idea of getting T200 in my 5-4.

    The Batman

    Not for everyone but I’m a big fan of the mallet, scotty and marvel characters - checkout my new ‘bread & butter’ (the Phantom) I’ve christened the ‘BatMan’
  8. FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (Jan. 17, 2020) – The new Scotty Cameron Special Select putter line blends timeless designs with modern craftsmanship to deliver pure tour-validated performance in eight new blade and mid-mallet setups precision milled in the USA. Available Jan. 24 in North American golf shops (and March 27 worldwide), Special Select putters are inspired by the classic, solid milled designs that Master Putter Maker Scotty Cameron has crafted for tour players around the world – featuring sleeker putter head profiles with thinner and flatter toplines, refined neck configurations, soft tri-soles and performance balanced weighting. Each Special Select putter has been completely reworked, including Scotty’s classic Newport, Newport 2 and Newport 2.5 blade styles. A refined Del Mar joins the new Fastback 1.5, Squareback 2, Flowback 5 and Flowback 5.5 mid-mallet models. QUOTING SCOTTY CAMERON “I’m always inspired by the putters that result from working directly with the best players in the world,” Cameron said. “With Special Select, I wanted to get back to the pure-milled shapes and faces that I’ve been crafting for tour players for over two decades now. We’ve brought those designs into the modern era with new setups, necks, faces, grips and weights. Every aspect of every putter has been redone. When it all came together, it was pretty special.” SPECIAL SELECT PERFORMANCE & TECHNOLOGY Special Select putters are meticulously crafted to provide pure performance and feel through the following key features: • TOUR-INSPIRED SHAPES: Sleeker putter head profiles with thinner, flatter toplines deliver confidence inspiring looks preferred by tour professionals. • SOLID MILLED STAINLESS STEEL CONSTRUCTION: Every Special Select is milled in the United States from a block of solid 303 stainless steel for legendary performance and playability with consistent sound and soft feel. • SOFT TRI-SOLE DESIGN: Special Select blade models are milled with a tour-inspired soft tri-sole design. This self-soling feature promotes a proper setup at address while providing a stable, aesthetically pleasing view of the topline from the moment the putter is placed on the green. • PERFORMANCE BALANCED WEIGHTING: New performance balanced weighting expands on the use of Scotty’s interchangeable, customizable sole weights to tune the performance and feel of putters at all lengths. By directing more weight to the heel and toe, the sweet spot is enlarged and stability is enhanced back and through the stroke without compromising feel or each model’s unique toe flow properties. The blades come equipped with new tungsten sole weights, which allow for ultra-sleek, tour-validated shapes with larger sweet spots. The mid-mallets employ stainless steel sole weights for optimal balance and weight distribution. • REFINED NECK CONFIGURATIONS: Each Special Select putter neck style has been revamped based on an intense and deliberate study in neck configurations. Newport, Newport 2 and Squareback 2 feature a slightly shorter plumbing neck for medium toe flow, with a newly-defined socket radius subtly repositioned with onset to provide clearer visibility of the leading edge at address. The Newport 2.5 and Fastback 1.5 each have a refined, toe flow-promoting small slant neck, while the rounded Flowback 5.5 comes with a new slantback neck for similar strokes. The heel-shafted Del Mar’s flow neck is designed for maximum toe flow. The GOLO-inspired Flowback 5 limits toe flow with a more traditional mid-bend, shaft-over-spud setup. SPECIAL SELECT MODELS The Special Select line offers golfers the choice of three blade models and five mid-mallet options developed for every stroke style. • Newport, Newport 2, Newport 2.5 models feature an insert-free, solid milled 303 stainless steel putter head with performance balanced tungsten sole weighting for a larger sweet spot and increased stability. Flatter and thinner toplines, milled flange sight lines, soft tri-soles and redesigned plumbing (Newport, Newport 2) and small slant (Newport 2.5) neck styles round out these timeless blade designs. • A classic name returns with the new Special Select Del Mar in an updated heel-shafted, compact mallet model. Precision milled from solid 303 stainless steel, the new Del Mar features refined concave flange contours and a narrower, flatter topline for a player-preferred look at address, and customizable stainless steel sole weights. A left-handed Del Mar is also available. • New Special Select Fastback 1.5, Squareback 2, Flowback 5 and Flowback 5.5 mid-mallet putters combine 6061 aircraft aluminum sole plates for optimal weight distribution with solid milled faces and interchangeable stainless steel sole weights. Each has a specific neck style – Fastback 1.5 (small slant), Squareback 2 (plumbing), Flowback (mid-bend shaft-over-spud) and Flowback 5.5 (slantback) – to facilitate better leading edge visibility from address, as well as desired toe flow properties. • CLICK HERE FOR AN OVERVIEW OF EACH SPECIAL SELECT PUTTER ACCESSORIES Each Special Select putter is accessorized with a new Pistolini Plus grip in cement gray with distinctive white lettering that retains the Pistolini shape with a slightly built up lower hand profile. This new grip complements an elegantly embroidered, red abrasion-resistant Special Select headcover with superior wear characteristics. REFINED AESTHETICS Scotty gave the Special Select line’s raw stainless steel finish a unique bead blast for a radiant yet glare resistant appearance. Additionally, Scotty’s signature three red dot pattern on the back cavity has a new look. Each dot has been milled with a recessed circular channel, polished and then hand-painted with cherry red translucent paint, creating a striking new “cherry rings” feature. AVAILABILITY Special Select putters will be available Jan. 24 in North America and March 27 worldwide through Titleist authorized golf shops. MAP $399.

  10. So if you all didn't see it last week the winner for the MGS trip to Titleist TPI for a full bag fitting including airfare and lodging was announced. I'm glad to say it went to someone who was already signed up on the forum as a member. Please Congratulate Jim AKA @jrshields3 on what is sure to be an unforgettable experience. Yes people really do win these trips and they aren't some marketing gimmick..despite what some may say. He doesn't have dates for the trip set yet, but said he'd be happy to keep the forum updated on the events leading up to the trip and then share the whole experience at TPI on the forum as well. Feel free to jump in and ask him anything about what he's hoping to get out of the trip or any idea of what setup he thinks he might end up with...I know we all go into fittings saying we'll let the experts do the recommendations. But it's also fun to dream and guess what might be a good fit for us. Congrats Jim, and we can't wait to hear about the trip.
  11. With divided bags being of countless variations, what do you all prefer? I have a mizuno Aerolite micro bag that i have been using for about 4 years. I would like to get a new 14 way bag because I am a meticulous person. But I figured I would ask since there is nothing else better to do with this quarantine.
  12. The 2nd generation of AVX is released, full details in the Press Release below. Will be interesting to see if an already good ball is improved. FAIRHAVEN, Mass (Jan. 22, 2020) – The next generation of Titleist AVX ­is engineered for greater ball speed, longer distance and increased short-game spin – advancing the multi-component golf ball technology that has produced breakthrough results for golfers who prioritize distance and extremely soft feel. First introduced in the spring of 2018 following a comprehensive four-month test market, AVX was developed as a performance alternative to sit alongside Titleist’s industry-leading Pro V1 and Pro V1x models – offering the lowest flight, lowest spin and softest feel of the three premium performance offerings. From core to cover, every piece of the new Titleist AVX golf ball has been reengineered to deliver improved total performance from tee to green: • The engine of 2020 AVX – a larger, reformulated low compression core – works in combination with a redesigned high flex casing layer to deliver greater ball speed and low long game spin for more distance. • A new, thinner cast urethane cover – specifically formulated for AVX by Titleist Golf Ball R&D chemists – delivers increased spin and control for improved greenside performance. • The increased core size also produces an even softer-feeling AVX. New AVX, offered in both white and high optic yellow, is now available in golf shops worldwide. “In our ongoing discussions with golfers, we are constantly meeting players who tell us, ‘AVX is the ball I’d been waiting for,’ ” said Frederick Waddell, Senior Product Manager, Titleist Golf Balls. “At the same time, we’ve been able to lean on those golfers to better understand how they experience AVX and what we can do to help them shoot lower scores. The improvements to AVX are a direct result of their insights and the inventiveness of our R&D team to take this design to the next level – and we expect golfers to see better numbers across the board. The new AVX is faster and longer, it performs better around green, and delivers even more of the incredibly soft feel that golfers love about this product.” Every AVX is made by Titleist associates in the company’s state-of-the-art Ball Plant 3 manufacturing facility to the highest performance and quality specifications in the industry, ensuring the most consistent performance ball to ball, and dozen to dozen. 2020 AVX PERFORMANCE & TECHNOLOGY AVX delivers unmatched performance in a low compression, multi-layered construction through proprietary core, cover and aerodynamic technologies: • New, Larger Core Formulation generates high speed and low long game spin to drive more distance with exceptionally soft feel. • Redesigned High Flex Casing Layer promotes higher ball speed and lower spin on long shots for enhanced distance. • New, Thinner Cast Urethane Elastomer Cover System has been specifically formulated by Titleist R&D to provide greater ball speed and increased greenside spin and control. • Unique Catenary Aerodynamic Dimple Design delivers a piercing, low trajectory while providing a consistent ball flight on all shots. AVAILABILITY The new Titleist AVX is available in golf shops worldwide beginning Jan. 22. MAP $47.99.

  15. Congrats to our selected testers! Go here to see the official review: Testers Wanted (2) T100-S and (2) T200 Titleist Irons What better way to get our minds off of all the troubles in the world these days than a good iron testing. Well at MyGolfSpy, we don’t do good, we do MIND BLOWING--You Can Not Be Serious testings!! And that’s what we have here! When Titleist introduced its new T Series irons last fall, it included pretty much everything you’d expect from Titleist, all neatly arranged—T100, T200 and T300. The T100 fit the accomplished amateur and many tour pros, while T200 and T300 were designed for the distance and game improvement segments respectively. Now this spring comes the T100-S, and you can read the excellent First Look by our own Tony Covey here: Titleist launches T100-S. Titleist in the first ever Forum Testing opportunity that I can recall, is going to provide our members a chance to put these beautiful and now longer players irons to the test. But wait there’s more: Titleist doesn’t just dip its toes in the water, it goes off the high dive! It realizes most everyday forum golfers aren’t cut out for such a player’s club. So, it’s widening the testing field to include the T-200 iron as well! That's right two models, two testers each. So read the instructions closely, as not following them exactly could cost you an opportunity to be a tester. How to Apply This is important, so please follow these instructions carefully: 1. If you haven't already, make sure you're a registered MyGolfSpy Forum member 2. Provide us with the information requested below. 3. Be honest on your selection of desired test iron and handicap, it doesn't do anybody any good to have a 36 handicap testing an iron designed for tour players and single digit handicaps. - Your First Name - City/Sate - Your Handicap - Current Iron Model In Play - Desired Model to test- You Must Choose ONE-saying something like "either one" will get you disqualified. Lastly but just as importantly Please do not 'quote' this post when applying.. Per the manufactures request: this review opportunity is open to golfers who resides in the US. We'll be announcing the testers in this thread next week, so make sure to check back.

  17. FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (Jan. 16, 2019) – The introduction of the all-new Titleist T100•S irons meets the need for a fully-forged player’s iron that plays stronger to produce greater distance. Modeled after the tour-refined design of the new Titleist T100 models – which have quickly become the most played irons this season on the PGA Tour – the new T100•S irons are individually calibrated with 2-degree stronger lofts to give better players the distance they need to score lower, while preserving the feel and precision required for superior shot shaping. Available for fittings March 12 (and in golf shops March 27), T100•S is a direct result of player feedback and the engineering ingenuity that has made Titleist the longstanding #1 iron on the PGA Tour. Joining T100, T200 and T300 in the strikingly new T-Series iron family, the T100•S introduces a new fully-forged Player’s Distance iron model unlike anything else in the category. “T100•S was developed as a Player’s Distance iron with an emphasis on the word Player’s. We’ve taken the most popular irons on the PGA Tour and carefully engineered them to maximize distance,” said Josh Talge, Vice President, Titleist Golf Club Marketing. “As we were launching the new T-Series, we met a lot of golfers who were really excited about T100 but had become accustomed to playing stronger-lofted iron sets. It would have been really easy to just take T100’s and bend them stronger for those players. But by doing that you start to sacrifice the incredible feel and turf interaction – the reasons why players were gravitating toward them in the first place. So our engineers went back and redesigned each individual iron to give these players the stronger lofts and distance they’re looking for, while preserving the performance of that pure forged shape and sole.” T100•S PERFORMANCE & TECHNOLOGY T100•S irons are masterfully designed to deliver the same tour-level precision and signature forged feel as T100, in 2-degree stronger lofts for longer distance: • Carefully calibrated T100 design with 2-degree stronger lofts enhances carry distance throughout the set. • New fully-forged dual cavity construction provides precise distance and control • Thinner, more responsive face increases ball speed across the face. • Co-forged dual-density tungsten (with an average of 66 grams placed in the heel and toe of the mid and long irons) delivers exceptional stability. • Tour-refined sole shape (same as T100) features a thin topline, minimal offset and enhanced camber for improved turf interaction. • Progressive set design – with progressive blade lengths, sole widths and hosel lengths – delivers optimal CG positioning with preferred shaping through the set. • Available irons: 3 (19º), 4 (22º), 5 (25º), 6 (28º), 7 (32º), 8 (36º), 9 (40º), P (44º), W48. “While we’ve engineered T100•S for distance, this still a precision product,” said Marni Ines, Director, Titleist Irons Development, Golf Club R&D. “To be a great iron player you need to be in control of your distances and have the ability to work the ball when the shot calls for it. The design of T100•S simply allows players to hit their number from even farther away – with the tight dispersion and proper trajectory they need to hit it close.” FREE TRIAL & FITTINGS Beginning March 12, golfers can experience the performance of T100•S irons by attending a Titleist Fitting and Trial event (including Titleist Thursdays), being held at hundreds of locations nationwide. To find an event, or book a free T-Series iron fitting with a Titleist Product Specialist, golfers can visit https://www.titleist.com/fitting/appointments. T100•S STOCK SHAFT T100•S’s stock shaft – the True Temper Projext X LZ (Mid launch, low spin | 120g) – enhances ball speed and launch for maximum distance with the proper trajectory to stop shots closer to the hole. In addition, Titleist offers an industry-leading number of custom shaft choices, many at no upcharge. T100•S AVAILABILITY New Titleist T-Series T100•S irons will be available in golf shops worldwide beginning March 27, with fittings beginning March 12. MAP $175 per club ($1399/set of 8).

  19. 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.

  21. This one has been talked about in small dark corners of the equipment nerds universe for a bit now, but it is sure to create a lot of buzz at the PGA Show this week, something very new and different for Titleist. Press Release From Titleist FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (Jan. 20, 2020) – The new easy-launching, super distance Titleist T400 irons are designed to provide moderate swing speed golfers with the most forgiving Titleist experience possible. Available for fittings Feb. 27 (and in golf shops March 27), the new Titleist T400 irons utilize an advanced split sole design, super-thin face and wide body, hollow head construction fortified by extreme amounts of high-density tungsten to help golfers effortlessly launch it higher and hit it farther. The addition of T400 to the strikingly new line of Titleist T-Series irons – joining the T100, T100•S, T200 and T300 models – ensures that every player is able to experience the engineering ingenuity and breakthrough performance that has made Titleist the longstanding #1 iron on the PGA Tour. “T400 is the super distance Titleist iron. This club is engineered to get the ball in the air and launch it as far as possible, even when the strike isn’t perfect,” Josh Talge, Vice President of Marketing, Titleist Golf Clubs. “There are so many golfers, particularly players with moderate swing speeds, who can benefit from this technology. T400 gets the absolute most out of your swing while still providing the playability of a Titleist iron along with that look, sound and feel that dedicated players demand.” T400 PERFORMANCE & TECHNOLOGY Designed to help moderate swing speed players score lower, the new T400 irons maximize performance on every shot through the following key technologies: • Wide body shape with advanced Split Sole design provides optimal turf interaction for a smooth and easy strike. • Hollow head construction produces an extremely high MOI that maximizes forgiveness on off center shots. • Extreme High-density tungsten weighting (up to 100g per head) creates a low CG, working in combination with a super-thin forged SUP-10 L-Face Insert (5-7 irons) to produce explosive launch off the turf. • Progressive set design – with progressive blade lengths, sole widths and hosel lengths – delivers optimal CG positioning with preferred shaping through the set. • Lightweight materials – with stock grip and shaft options – promote increased swing speeds for longer distance. FREE TRIAL & FITTINGS Beginning Feb. 27, golfers can experience the performance of T400 irons by attending a Titleist Fitting and Trial event (including Titleist Thursdays), being held at hundreds of locations nationwide.

  24. 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/
  25. 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
