Rick Nelson with Adam Scott

In the Titleist Tour Van, we can quickly make adjustments for players and then take it right onto the course. Adam has a 15° PT 906 prototype fairway wood that he asked to be bent 1/2° weaker to 15.5°. This kind of fine-tuning helps Adam get a specific yardage and trajectory. I like to walk the practice round with players to see how the clubs are working so after bending his 3-wood, I walked 9 holes with Adam, as did Butch Harmon. This is the best way to get feedback from the guys and watch the ball flight myself. This is the first week that Adam has a hybrid in his bag, a PT 585.H with 19° and an NV 85 shaft. Voke is also making a 248.06 wedge for Adam so I've included a photo of his work order sheet. Adam played his practice round today with Charley Hoffman and Cobra player, Geoff Ogilvy. Both guys are great fun and strong players. I've included a few other photos from the group. -- Rick Nelson

    Adam's clubs are standard length, Robert's are 1.5" over standard.

    Hello, I was wondering if Adam plays his clubs standard or if they are longer? I also have the same question about Robert Karlsson's clubs because I am a tall guy and I know these guys have passed the 6 foot mark.

    Please see the <a href="/2007/04/02/whats-in-adams-bag/" rel="nofollow">What's in Adam's Bag</a> post.

    I was curious what clubs make up Adam's bag?  I know they change from week to week, but what would you say is a typical set up?

  5. Robert Sellman

    It's a mixed bag -- some of our players go with a Vokey Design wedge around 48° for their pitching wedge, many others use the pitching wedge that matches the iron model they are playing.

    I am curious about the pitching wedge.  Do a majority of Tour players use some type of wedge to replace their PW, as in using a 48° Vokey Design wedge rather than say a 695MB PW?  Thanks.

    As always, we recommend visiting an <a href="www.fittingworks.com/FindaFitter.aspx" rel="nofollow">Authorized Titleist FittingWorks Partner</a> to help you determine the correct specs for your new wedges.  Something to keep in mind when changing the loft on a wedge is that the bounce will also change in direct proportion. For example, bending a 56° wedge with 10° bounce to 55° will decrease the bounce to 9°. <a href="www.titleist.com/.../" rel="nofollow">Vokey Design wedges</a> ordered through an <a href="www.titleist.com/locator.aspx" rel="nofollow">Authorized Titleist Golf Shop</a> can have their lofts customized 1° either way with the Tour Chrome finish, or 2° either way with the Oil Can finish.

    I have a question about changing the lofts on wedges and decided to come to the source instead of getting bad info from somewhere else. I am looking for a Vokey Oil Can 55°  and SM59° setup. What lofts do you recommend I start with? Is it better to bend the originals weak or strong? Or is the bounce the main concern?  Thanks for your time.

    I am planning on buying a Vokey Spin Milled wedge that has 60° loft with 8° bounce. Do you think 8° bounce is the right choice so that I could use this as my main wedge out of the sand?
