Team Titleist South East Asia is pleased to introduce you to Titleist Advanced Fitting Days. Over the last few months, Titleist's South East Asia Club Fitting Manager, Shaun Moulds, has been traveling around the region running Titleist Advanced Fitting Days for many lucky golfers. 

 During these days golfers will have a one on one session with the Titleist fitting expert (Shaun) who evaluates their current equipment and looks to find out what changes need to be made to help golfers get the most out of their equipment, and ultimately lower their scores.

At these sessions, Shaun uses a Trackman launch monitor which accurately tracks the ball from the time it's struck to when it lands. Trackman also provides launch angle, spin rate, clubhead speed, ball speed and descending/landing angle.

 In conjunction with Trackman, Shaun will also use our SureFit Fitting Cart, complete with the 910 range of products including the D2 and D3 driver models, 910F and 910Fd fairways and 910H hybrids. Also in the cart we have the AP1, AP2, CB and MB iron models. Along with these heads there are multiple shafts at different weights, lengths and flexes to help the golfer obtain their desired results. A full range of Vokey wedges in various lofts and bounces will also be available for fitting.

If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, get in contact with us today to find out when the next Advanced Fitting Day near you will be held.

When contacting Titleist for an Advanced Fitting Session, be sure to let us know your location, what you are looking to be fit for, and your handicap. Also, be sure to bring your current equipment, golf shoes and a golf glove to the session. 

 Shaun took some time out of his busy fitting schedule to answer a few questions on Fitting for Team Titleist South East Asia. Check out the video below and hear what he had to say. Also, check out some examples below the video of golfers who have attended Advanced Fitting Days over the last couple of months, and who have seen instant improvements to their game simply by ensuring they are playing the correct equipment.

The following are some examples of golfers who have already been through an Advanced Fitting Day with Shaun and the impact the day has had on their game.

Golfer 1 (Singapore) - Handicap 5 - Driver Fitting
Golfer 1 was using a 45 3/4", 10.5 degree Stiff shaft in his driver. With this driver he was struggling to hit the ball consistently out of the middle of the face therefore limiting his maximum potential ball speed for his swing speed. His statistics were as follows:
Ball speed  142.3 mph
Spin rate  2964 rpms
Launch Angle 13.2 degrees
Carry distance 199metres

He was fitted for a Titleist 910 D2 9.5 degree V2 Proforce 76gram shaft with a SureFit setting at B1 @ 44 1/2". With this, he was able to achieve the following statistics:
Ball Speed 149.4mph
Spin rate 2545 rpms
Launch Angle 11.1degrees
Carry distance 218 metres

With this example, even though we shortened the length of the driver, we were able to increase the average ball speed by 7mph because the golfer was now able to hit the ball consistently out of the middle of the clubface (the center of the clubface produces the fastest ball speed). By also reducing the launch angle and the spin rate we were able to gain 19 meters carry for this golfer. His ball flight was a draw so we changed the SureFit setting to B1 (3/4 degree flatter) which gave him his desired ball flight. The shorter shaft also gave him a better shot dispersion.

Golfer 2 (Malaysia) - Handicap 0 - Long game fitting
Golfer 2 wanted to get a hybrid that would sit distance wise somewhere between their 3 iron and 3 wood. With the aid of Trackman, we were able to establish that the players carry distance on their 3 iron was only 1 meter further than the carry distance of 4 iron, also not as consistent. The golfer thus decided to forget the 3 iron and instead focus on a club in between their 4 iron and 3 wood. 
3 wood carry = 201 meters
4 iron carry = 178.2 meters

On this occasion the golfer wanted a hybrid that carried at about the 190 metre mark. We were able to achieve this with a 910H 19degree with an Motore F3 95gram Stiff flex shaft.

Golfer 3 (Thailand) - Handicap 23
Golfer 3's launch was low and the ball was spinning too much which was causing him to lose distance. He was using the following shaft: 45 1/2" 10.5 degree Regular Flex 60g. His statistcis were as follows:
Ball speed  113.8 mph
Spin rate  4064 rpms
Launch Angle 9.6 degrees
Carry distance 156metres

He was fitted for a 910 D2, 10.5 degree with a Motore F3 55gram Regular 45" shaft with a SureFit setting at B2 (3/4 of a degree more upright which helped reduce his fade). His statistics after the fitting were the following:
Ball speed  116 mph
Spin rate  3456 rpms
Launch Angle 12.7 degrees
Carry distance 165metres

The golfer increased his drives with a lighter shaft than his original. This increase was also due to reducing his spin rate and increasing his launch angle.

As you can see, club fitting is key to making sure you're giving yourself the best opportunity to shoot low scores. Contact Titleist South East Asia today to sign up for your Fitting Session. If you have a question you feel the answer of which may benefit other golfers out there, go ahead and ask it on our discussion board, and we'll get back to you ASAP.

Team Titleist Thailand

Titleist Brand Ambassador Scott Stallings won The Greenbrier Classic with one of the year's most extraordinary finishes, trusting a Pro V1x golf ball, new Prototype Titleist AP2 irons and a bag full of Titleist equipment to his first PGA Tour victory.

 Stallings, 26, emerged from an all-Titleist playoff with a birdie on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to cap off a three-win week for Titleist golf ball players around the world, including Pro V1x loyalist Yani Tseng, who won the the Ricoh Women's British Open to become the youngest player across all tours to win her fifth major championship.

Stalling's comeback victory featured eight birdies over his final 11 holes Sunday at The Old White TPC Course, as well as four storybook shots to close out the tournament.

On the tee at the 169-yard par-3 18th hole at the end of final round, Stallings stood over his Pro V1x golf ball with his new Prototype Titleist AP2 (712 Series) 9-iron in his hands, knowing he needed a birdie to get into a playoff with Titleist Brand Ambassador Bill Haas and Pro V1x loyalist Bob Estes.

He sent his Pro V1x sailing just left of the flag, the ball landing 5 feet from the hole. Stallings dropped in the birdie putt for a 1-under 69 and 10-under 270 total, finishing at the top of a leader board that featured eight Titleist Brand Ambassadors and nine Titleist golf ball players in the top 10: Stallings (Pro V1x), Haas (Pro V1), Estes (Pro V1x), Brendon de Jonge (T-4, Pro V1x), Cameron Tringale (T-4, Pro V1x), Jimmy Walker (T-4, Pro V1), Gary Woodland (T-4, Pro V1), Webb Simpson (T-9, Pro V1x) and Kyle Stanley (T-4, Pro V1x).

About 20 minutes later, Stallings was back on the 18th tee, Pro V1x in hand.

"I actually put my ball on the same tee that I used in the same spot during regulation," he said.

And again, Stallings struck his new Prototype Titleist AP2 9-iron perfectly. His Pro V1x slammed down on the green, 7 feet left of the flag. (Earlier in the round, Stallings also used his 9-iron to set up short birdie putts on Nos. 11 and 14.)

 Stallings' caddie handed him his Scotty Cameron 009 putter, and he stood to the side of the 18th green watching birdie tries by both Haas and Estes miss just short.

"I just closed my eyes right before, when I was reading the putt, and just took a deep breath and visualized the ball going in the hole," said Stallings, who finished third earlier this season at the Transitions Championship.

"It was great. After the ball went in, I don't really know what happened. Everything is kind of a blur."

For the week, Stallings finished second in birdies (19) and tied for second in Green in Regulation (79.2 percent), becoming the third player to win on the PGA Tour trusting new Prototype Titleist (712 Series) irons since their launch five weeks ago at the AT&T National. That week, Stallings put the new prototype irons in the bag after just one practice round.

Titleist Brand Ambassador Nick Watney won the AT&T National playing the new Prototype AP2 irons, and Titleist Brand Ambassador Chris Kirk won the Viking Classic using the new Prototype CB irons.

Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at The Greenbrier Classic with 109 players, more than seven times the nearest competitor with 14 and more than all competitors combined.
 Titleist also was first in iron sets (49), including 27 sets of new Prototype Titleist 712 irons;  sand, lob and approach wedges(149); and putters (64).

With the win, Stallings earned an invitation to the 2012 Masters Tournament. He also moved to 26th in the FedExCup standings and earned a spot in this week's World Golf Championships event at Firestone Country Club.

Here's a closer look at Scott Stallings' Titleist equipment:

Ball: Titleist Pro V1x
Driver: Titleist 910D3 8.5º, B•1 SureFit Tour hosel setting (Mitsubishi Diamana Ahina 70 )
3-wood: Titleist 909F2 13.5º (Mitsubishi Diamana White 83)
Hybrid: Titleist 910H 19º, B•2 Setting (Matrix Ozik Altus)
Irons: Prototype AP2, 712 Series 4-9 (True Temper Project X 6.5 )
Wedge: Titleist Vokey Design Spin Milled 248.10º, 252.12º, 256.14º, 260.10º (True Temper Project X 6.5)
Putter: Scotty Cameron 009

Stalling's victory was one of three on the weekend for Titleist golf ball players across the worldwide professional tours.

So far in 2011, 99 players have trusted Titleist golf balls to worldwide victories, more than seven times the nearest competitor with 14 and more than all competitors combined.

A total of 12,294 players have played Titleist golf balls in competition this season, more than six times the nearest competitor with 1,874 and more than all other golf balls combined.

 LPGA: Pro V1x loyalist Yani Tseng continued her major championship dominance with a four-shot victory at the Ricoh Women's British Open.

Tseng, 22, closed with a 3-under 69 to finish the four rounds at Carnoustie at 16-under 272, rolling her Pro V1x golf ball in for three birdies over her final five holes, including Nos. 17 and 18.

Pro V1x loyalist Brittany Lang shot a final-round 5-under 67 to finish runner-up at 12-under 276.

"I wish to win more, but I am really happy. In my mind, I say, 'Wow, five majors.' I never think about that...," said Tseng, who last month captured the Wegman's LPGA Championship by 10 shots.

"I feel like this is just very special, and I'm very happy and very appreciative that I worked hard and finally all the hard work has paid off."

Tseng was one of 102 players at the Ricoh Women's British Open that relied on Titleist golf balls for their success, more than nine times the nearest competitor with 11 and more than all competitors combined.

SOUTH AFRICAN TOUR: Titleist Brand Ambassador Jean Hugo won the Vodacom Origins of Golf at Simola Golf Estate, converting an 8-foot birdie putt on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff with Pro V1 loyalist Peter Karmis.

 Hugo, who played his first nine hole in 7-under 29, closed with an 8-under 64, making birdie on the par-5 18th to force the playoff.

It marked Hugo's 12th career Sunshine Tour victory.

Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the event with 54 players, more than three times the nearest competitor with 16 and more than all competitors combined.

EUROPEAN TOUR: Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the Irish Open with 95 players, including runner-up and Pro V1 loyalist Richard Green, more than four times the nearest competitor with 22 and more than all competitors combined.

• CHAMPIONS TOUR: At the U.S. Senior Open, 112 players trusted Titleist golf balls for their success, including runner-up and Pro V1x loyalist Mark O'Meara, more than eight times the nearest competitor with 13 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist also was first in iron sets (44); and sand, lob and approach wedges (132).  Titleist was second in drivers (49), including 34 910D2 or 910D3 models; hybrids (46); and putters (36). 

• NATIONWIDE TOUR: A total of 107 players at the Utah Championship teed up Titleist golf balls, more than six times the nearest competitor with 16 and moe than all competitors combined. Titleist also was first in iron sets (42);  sand, lob and approach wedges (141); and putters (69).

JAPAN TOUR: Titleist was the overwhelming golf ball of choice at the Sun Chlorella Classic with 62 players. Titleist also was first in hybrids (38); and sand, lob and approach wedges (108).
