CAMERON YOUNG ADDS TSi 7-WOOD, T200 4-iron
- Prior to the start of the new season, Cameron Young visited the Titleist Performance Institute to dial-in the gaps at the long end of his set, having recently replaced his T100 3-iron with a TSi2 21.0° fairway wood at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship.
- As a result, in working with Titleist’s Director of Players Promotions J.J. Van Wezenbeeck, Young moved from a 5-wood (TSi3 18.0°) to a 4-wood (TSi3 16.5°) and replaced his T100 4-iron with a T200 (Utility Build) (Utility Build) 4-iron.
- Said Van Wezenbeeck: “Cameron loved the height that the TSi2 7-wood gave him, but it created a gapping issue with his TSi3 5-wood. Prior to adding the 7-wood, he had gone driver, 5-wood, 3-iron.
- We replaced the 5-wood with a TSi3 4-wood, and then moved him from a T100 4-iron to the T200 utility model, which gave him the extra height and distance he needed there.”
