Notes from the Tour: Switching to 718 AP2 irons

Abby L., Team Titleist Staff Team Titleist Staff

Hi everyone - I wanted to share a quick note from this week's CIMB Classic about dialing in a complete set on Tour. 

Titleist Brand Ambassador Cameron Smith (Pro V1x) finished the first round of the 2017 CIMB Classic with a one-stroke lead, shooting a bogey-free 64 with 5 birdies on his opening nine.

Smith, originally from Brisbane, Australia, has played quite a bit of golf in Asia. His performance off the tee and into the green showed his confidence on Thursday at TPC Kuala Lumpur hitting 12/14 fairways and all but two of the greens in regulation (16/18).

Smith recently switched to the 718 AP2 irons (4-9), from the 718 T-MB irons after the Dell Technologies Open (TPC Boston). He loved the look and feel of the 718 T-MB but after a few events with them felt he needed to reign in his distance on shots into the green, noticing his shots were consistent but carrying further than he preferred. He did decide to keep the 718 T-MB 3-iron in the bag, feeling confident in the extra distance it provided and how well it helped his gapping into his 917 F2 3-wood.

Thanks to Rick for the report in this week's Field Notes from the CIMB Classic, and here's to a great weekend for all of Team Titleist!
