Thanks to Titleist (the organizer), Shaun (the fitter) & Brian (the informer) for inviting me to this Titleist Custom Fitting day @ Saujana @ 4:30pm (I arrived just in time for the session as i left office late even tho i was on 1/2 day leave)

During the fitting process, i was introduced to Mr Trackman (as below). Its main responsibility is to gather as much data on my shot patterns, distances, spin rates, swing speed, smash factor, ball speed and etc



In this session, i was supposed to fit for
1. Driver
2. Fairway woods
3. Hybrids
4. Irons
5. Wedges



The Sure Fit system is surely impressive with arrays of club heads & shafts for my testing...



However, my fitting experience ended abruptly as rain came pouring. At this point of time, i had only managed to complete the driver., fairway wood & irons fitting...

Shaun suggested that we continue on Thursday which unfortunately i need to work (yes yes, otherwise no income for golf :p). So the part 2 fitting will probably continue next month when Shaun visits Malaysia once again Very Happy

The results of my part 1 fitting ?

Well, the configuration recommended by Shaun are as below
1. Driver - 10.5 degrees 910 D2 @ A1 setting, UST Mamiya ProForce V2 76g S, 44 1/2 inches
- its amazing that the 76g shaft suits me the better as i never thought that i am capable of handling such a heavy staff, especially on a driver. The shaft felt stable throughout the swing and able to swing hard and yet still in control of the wild wild swing Wink. Also, Mr Trackman says that with this recommended shaft, i am getting additional of 10m carries and a high ball flight consistently with tight dispersion. The swing speed is faster compared to my existing Cleveland drivers
- Swing speed : 103-105mph, Smash factor : 1.49-1.50, Ball speed : 148-150mph, Spin : High, Launch : 11.5-11.8 degrees,
2. Fairway wood - 15 degrees 910 F @ D4 setting, Fujikura Motore F3 70g S, 42 1/2 inches
- 70g is still heavier than my current setup on my Cobra FSpeed. With the recommended setup, i am getting an additional of 7m of carries and with better consistency...
- Swing speed : Xmph, Smash factor : 1.49-1.50, Ball speed : Xmph, Spin : High
3. Irons - 710 CB, NS Pro 95g S, Titleist standard length, 2 degrees upright
- the recommendation of 95g is certainly a surprise as i been using dynamic gold sensicore (which is approx 135g) on my Mizuno MP29. But the Mr. Trackman results show that i am getting a penetrating yet high enough ball flight with additional 9m of carries Smile
- Swing speed : 90mph, Smash factor : 1.49-1.50, Ball speed : 128-132mph, Spin : High
4. Balls - Titleist ProV1x as Shaun mentioned that my spin rate is pretty much on the high side (amazing, right)

Oh boy, cant wait for part 2

That sure sounds like a fun and enlightening session.

Trackman brings science to measuring and understanding the swing like nothing before it.

It helps a lot because it measures accurately what is happening at impact.

Once you have that technology, then you can try different shafts and heads to see the difference they make.

It's amazing how much benefit the correct loft, shaft weight, flex, kickpoint, swing weight can make to the ball flight. Not to mention the club head and loft.

And because physics affect the ball flight so much (correction, affects it TOTALLY) in terms of attack angle, launch angle, club face angle, club path, ball speed, etc, not having something like Trackman means we are just guessing. With so many parameters involved (look at the parameters Trackman measures), how can we even begin to guess?

And for higher speed swings like yours, it is even more relevant, because the same percentage makes more difference when the ball stays in the air longer.

Looks like, after this, I can't keep up with your driver at tee off anymore! Laughing Laughing Laughing

Well, technology cannot overwrite human nature. Laughing

lil puppy, have you hit with Project X, the weight that you want, and compared it with the 95g NS Pro, or NS Pro with other weight? Just curious...
