Last weekend we saw a tremendous back nine battle at Augusta National between Adam Scott and Angel Cabrera. There was so much to note, that little was made of the fact that Adam had a brand new driver in his bag – the Titleist 913 D3 (9.5 degree) with a Graphite Design Tour AD DI-8 shaft.
Adam has used this shaft for a few years now and only upgraded the clubhead to the latest Titleist model. His shaft is the only one of its kind – built especially for him. The shaft is built in the same manner and includes the same technology as all other Tour AD DI 8 X flex shafts, but he requested the color pattern and they agreed to build it, but just for him. Legend has it that even Tiger Woods, who uses the Tour AD DI 6 ( a lighter version), asked for the same color pattern and was turned down!
Adam’s driver shaft weighs in at a trimmed weight of just over 80 grams and measures out to a playing length of 44 3/4″. Here is Ian Fraser from Modern Golf sharing a few interesting notes on the club:
I also wanted to mention that I am honored to announce that I have been named a TrackMan University Partner.
TrackMan University Partners are highly respected members of the golf community and they share our enthusiasm for the TrackMan technology and data parameters. TrackMan University Partners will be invited as guest speakers at Users Conferences, Certification Workshops and / or other TrackMan events.
I am very excited and look forward to sharing my knowledge with you for many years to come.
I also wanted to let you know that my last day of teaching at Berkeley Hall before departing to Atlantic GC for the summer will be Saturday May 11th. I will start teaching at Atlantic on Saturday May 18th.
As always thanks for reading!
