Fit for a Major: The Story Behind Adam Scott's New Titleist 913D3 Driver

Posted: April 18, 2013

Most players don't like to make too many equipment changes before a major, but after working closely with the team on the Titleist Tour Van, Adam put a new driver in his bag - the new Titleist 913D3.

To get the scoop, Team Titleist checked in with Titleist Tour Representative Chris Tuten.

"We were on the range at the Tampa Bay Championship a few weeks ago with Adam and working through a number of different options to help optimize launch, flight and distance with the driver," said Tuten.

"At the end of the session, we built Adam a new 913D3 9.5º driver with a Graphite Design Tour AD DI 8, X flex graphite shaft at 44.75" and dialed it in with the A•1 (neutral) SureFit Tour Hosel setting."

With the new driver in-hand, Adam set off to work on putting the club through its paces.  

Following several practice rounds leading up to the Masters, Adam was full of confidence in his new driver.

"Adam was really happy with the performance of the 913D3. He was getting a higher ball flight without increased spin and seeing longer carry distance - which would be beneficial to him at Augusta National and going forward," added Tuten.

The new 913D3 made its tournament debut in Adam's bag at the Masters, and it routinely set him up for birdie chances throughout the week.

His solid driving was crucial in shooting a back-nine 33 to get him into the playoff, which he won in dramatic fashion.

Here is another quick look at the specs on Adam's new driver...

Model: Titleist 913D3
Loft: 9.5º
Shaft: Graphite Design Tour AD DI 8

Can support the accolades behind the 913D3 as I recently  put the 913D3 in the bag....seems much more solid than the 910D2 I replaced. Picked up +10 mph on ball speed in launch monitor when compared side by side with lower shot dispersion.

Congrats to Adam, and Steve. We have a "Demo Days" here at a local golf course, and I'm looking forward to demoing the 913D2. I have the 910D2 now, and thinking about going to the 913D2. Maybe I can slam the 913 like Adam. Ya think?

I love the classic look of Titleist drivers. The club sets up square with a traditional look, and doesn't give you the appearance that you're looking down at Spaceship or anything else foreign to golf. Great looking club and the sound and feel are even better than before!

Having purchased and currently using the 913d3 with a tour ad di 7 x shaft the best combo I have ever hit found it surprising that Adams masters winning driver had a black and silver graphite design shaft ? Is this a tour only model he used ?

Is there any way to demo custom shafts at fitting days?
