This week the Titleist Tour Van is on site at the Valero Texas open in San Antonio, which afforded us an opportunity to invite two avid Titleist Players Staff members on-board for an up-close look at the latest equipment offerings and fitting techniques employed by the magicians on the Titleist Tour Van staff. Ryan Crysler and Spencer Reynolds are both certified club fitters at Austin Golf Club and are each passionate teachers of the game. They have co-created MyGolfPerformance.com, a network of websites through which serious players can work with Ryan and Spencer to refine their games from "tee to green, driver to putter and fitness in between". They are also the co-hosts of "Inside the Studio", a show in which Ryan and Spencer preview the latest in golf equipment, interview industry leaders and explore the latest trends in golf technology, fitting and instruction. For these two golf equipment "gear-heads", a trip to the Titleist Tour Van was like a visit for two kids to Santa's workshop. Check out some photos from Ryan and Spencer's visit below.
Ryan is a Titleist Performance Institute-Certified Level III Golf Instructor and a Titleist Top 100 Club Fitter. He has been personally influenced by several great teachers including Claude Harmon III, Butch Harmon, Dave Phillips, Greg Rose, Jim Hardy, Hank Haney, and Buck Mayers. Ryan is inspired by the work of several TPI Advisory Staff members including Gray Cook, Ramsay McMaster, and Tom House and noted authors Tim Ferriss and Gary Vaynerchuk. Ryan's philosophy is that golf is a sport and players should practice, train, and play in an athletic mindset.
Spencer is a dedicated Scotty Cameron enthusiast. Through this hobby Spencer has gotten to know a tight-knit group of collectors that share in his passion and are extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the Scotty Cameron world. Spencer’s primary goal is to outfit players with the best equipment to fit their game, especially in the area of putting. Spencer believes that the short game area is where a player truly shows his or her individuality and is one of the main areas of the game in which fundamentals are highly accompanied by feel.
Both Ryan and Spencer offer on-line instruction. For more information, please visit http://www.playerstaff.com/
