Adjustment Propels Love to Strong Finish at Bay Hill
Posted: March 31, 2010
Titleist Brand Ambassador Davis Love III arrived at Bay Hill Club and Lodge for the Arnold Palmer Invitational having missed the cut in his four most recent PGA Tour starts after beginning the season with a T5 finish at the Sony Open in Hawaii. While working on the practice tee with members of the Titleist Leadership team, Davis noted that he didn't feel as if he was making truly solid contact with his new MB irons. Davis and the team determined that his irons were slightly too upright, so the lie angles were adjusted flatter. Davis immediately thought the irons looked better at address and found the contact at impact to be more solid. He commented that he felt much more confident that the club was contacting the turf squarely and that the accuracy of his shots had improved. The confidence spilled over to the tournament, where Davis recorded a T14 finish while leading the field with 25 birdies. Davis will look to continue his good play this week at the Shell Houston Open, where a victory would qualify him for next week's Masters Tournament.
