Robert Karlsson Heads to TPI for a Pre-Masters Warm-Up
Posted: March 30, 2010
Titleist Brand Ambassador Robert Karlsson recently visited the Titleist Performance Institute in Oceanside, Calif. to complete a 3-D motion capture analysis as part of his preparation for the Masters Tournament. Robert had previously been through a 3-D motion capture analysis, but he and his coach (TPI Certified Instructor Mark Blackburn) have been working on swing changes and Robert wanted to compare the two swing profiles to confirm his results. Robert also took time to help TPI co-founders Dr. Greg Rose and Dave Phillips film video for the upcoming season of Golf Fitness Academy.
In the image gallery, Robert can be seen using a different Titleist 909 driver than his previous gamer. While at the test facility, home to TPI, Titleist Leadership executive Larry Bobka helped fit Robert into this new driver to better match the swing changes Robert and Mark have been working on. Larry commented that "we were trying to get his launch angle up and reduce spin from his current driver since he's making changes to his swing to shallow out his angle of attack." The new driver is a 909D3 with 9.5° loft and the Graphite Design Tour AD DI-6TX shaft.
