Hybrid for Hoey
Posted: January 24, 2011
The Abu Dhabi Golf Championship may only just have drawn to a close but the players are already preparing in ernest for the next event - The Volvo Golf Champions event in Bahrain. The Titleist Team have already made the journey up the Persian Gulf to the island kingdom of Bahrain and arrived just in time to meet up with Titleist Ambassador Michael Hoey who was one of the first to hit the range.
Michael is one of the many European Tour players to have switched over to the new Titleist 910 metals and is already playing the 910D3 driver and 910F fairway. He has been delighted with the performance of the new metals and checked in with the Team in Bahrain to work on a hybrid to compliment his setup. With his current yardage gap between #3 wood and his longest iron Michael was looking for a hybrid that would go 225-230yards and, following a Trackman session on the range in Bahrain, the Team were able to find a 910 Hybrid that gave him the ideal distance coupled with the flight and control he was looking for.
Michael's weapon of choice is the tour-only 910HT hybrid with 20° of loft fitted with the Fujikura Speeder 904HB X-Stiff shaft. His SureFit Tour hosel setting was kept neutral with Michael preferring the standard A1 setting.
