Adam Scott has a 2010 Titleist 910D3 in play at The Players

Published

on

Adam Scott hasn’t played his best golf this season, to say the least, and he’s searching for answers. Scott has fallen to No. 71 in the OWGR and has only notched two top-20 finishes. While the Australian has characteristically struggled with his putter, it’s not a putter switch he’s made for The Players (he did that last week at the Wells Farg0).

Nope. Instead, Scott is swapping drivers, putting a 2010 Titleist 910D3 in the bag, Thursday, seemingly with the same Graphite Design AD DI-8X shaft that was in Scott’s 910D3 in 2011. He was a mere tied-for-95th in strokes gained: off-the-tee, but hey the Australian fired a 3-under 69, so there’s that. He averaged 297.3 yards off the tee with the eight-year old club.

“It doesn’t matter whether it’s on the greens or you got to do something else driving the ball, to make the game what you feel is easier is definitely something you need to do, especially when you’ve been struggling for any kind of momentum out there, which has been, for me, frustrating,” Scott said. “So it’s freeing some things up.”

The big stick is currently valued at $25.20 by the PGA Value Guide.

What do you think about Scott’s switch, GolfWRX members?

    I still play a 905R and it is more consistent than anything new that I have wasted money on!

      That is one of the best. Scott Stallings told my son to keep playing it and he still bombs 300+ yards consistently.

      Don’t worry about discretionary weight and sweet spot size. Pffft. Who needs new technology?

    Maybe if Rory went back to the 910 D2 that he had success with, he might have made the cut too.

    I still play the 910D3 set to 7.75 and rotate between 2 shafts Grafalloy Blue(White) XS & Grafalloy Axis XS if I want a lower trajectory. Also have the 910 3w 13.5 with Axis TX or Blue X tipped 1′ and the 910 Hybrid 18 with Grafalloy C-note X. I have tried 913, 915 even D4 but still game the 910 because the feel is great and they are more workable in my opinion plus I don’t lose more then a few yards. All you idiots making stupid comments should know its more about the setup with the shaft and the weighting along with the adjustable face loft lie, NOT about spending $$$ on the newest release. Part of the reason TM is not very profitable is bc they release too many new versions and depreciate a good product.

    When new equipment is released its always the ducks nuts, longer, straighter, more forgiving etc. Newer doesn’t make the older stuff stop working completely like some think. BTW I’ve got 913 9.5D2, 13.5, 17 and 21. No need for me to so called upgrade.

    Adam Scott is crazy.
    680 irons for years, even after Titleist introduced several new generations of very similar muscle backs, and now back to the 910d3?
    He’s thinking “I used to be good with these club 7 years ago.”
    He’s trying to reclaim what he had instead of creating something new.
    You can’t go back in time to improve your game.

        Yeah JP – I have to second that motion! “Asinine” might be a better description than “stupid”, but I am fine with “stupid”.

    Makes one wonder if newest is not necessarily any better than older versions of same driver. Find one you can consistently hit reasonably well and let everyone else shell out the 4 and 5 hundred. Good enough for Adam Scott,good enough for us too

    I went back to my trusty 905s a couple of rounds ago…Swinging it like it’s Thor’s Hammer. Whatever works best for each individual.

    Heck, I still game a 975J (circa 2001) with a ProLaunch Blue 65X, because I hit it just as far, but a much higher percentage in the fairway, compared to any newer drivers. It’s about what works best for each player, not necessarily what’s newest and fanciest.

    I have been playing this driver since it came out. Can’t get it out of my hands!

    I personally think that Adam Scott falling from the rankings has to do that he’s less focused on golf ever since he got married got a kid. So his priorities has changed. When he was single and wolfing around he was one a top 10 player.

    I purchased a 917 D3 last spring, sold it and went back to the 910 back in October.

    I believe the Titleist 910 driver has been the best driver including the 913, 915 and 917. The new drivers feel like rocks when you hit the ball. The 910 has always had that soft, sweet spot feel. I’ve tried all the newer Titleist drivers, but I’m still using the 910 as my gamer.

    I still have mine – the last of the great titleist drivers, imho.

    I feel like the value comment is a bit misleading – yeah a bone stock 910 would fetch $25, but good luck paying less than ~$200 for one with a Tour AD DI in it.

      May 12, 2018 at 7:38 am

      That’s not it’s value anyway. That’s the trade in value. Resale value is 60 excluding the value of the shaft.

    I have gone back to the 910 D3 65 gram X flex myself after purchasing a 917 D3, Better feel, sound, distance and control for me.

    Go with what brings you confidence on the tee. Just switched from my Callaway 2016 BB to 2010 Tour Edge XCG5 driver and dropped my Adams 2014 3w for XCG5 4w. Happy Camper Now!

Which Air Jordan model should Nike release as a golf shoe next?

Published

on

According to GolfMagic, Nike’s Air Jordan III golf shoe took off from the foul line and soared right out of stock.

Per the site: “Nike launched this new model back in February… but you’ll do very well to get your hands on either them right now as they have sold out on Nike’s website. However, a Nike spokesperson has since commented saying “more is on the way.”

Grammar aside, this is interesting.

Now, it wasn’t long ago that all golf shoes looked like this.

And with all due respect to the Etonic Dri-Lite of yore, and giving wide berth to the traditionalists in the golf footwear space, the transition to sneaker-style golf shoes is cool, isn’t it? I mean, even if you’re monumentally swagger impaired like myself and could never pull the “Js on the fairways” look off, it’s intriguing, no?

With that in mind, and recognizing the demand for the 3s, I thought it’d be interesting to consider what the next Jordan golf shoe ought to be.

Here are my finalists for the next wide release (yes, I know Nike made Ray Allen custom 11s and MJ has had a few customs). Many of these are new colorways of classic (OG) models. I’ve tried for a range of styles and picks from across the Jordan timeline. Images via the excellent catalogue on the Jordan website.

Air Jordan XXXII

Air Jordan VI

Air Jordan VIII

Air Jordan II (low)

Air Jordan XXX

Looks like Tiger is exploring some innovative solutions to his putting woes…

Published

on

Tiger Woods was 39th in strokes gained: putting in 2018. Historically an excellent putter, Woods was hot-and-cold with the flatstick, even benching his soulmate Scotty Cameron Newport 2.

It looks like Woods may have an ace in the hole for the upcoming season, however, with respect to his green reading and putt sinking. Check out this video posted to his Instagram from the Tiger Woods Invitational on the Monterey Peninsula earlier this week.

Good thing the USGA is restricting the use of green-reading devices and technologies, because this kid looks close to cracking the eternal mystery of the perfect marriage of line and speed for every putt.

Cool stuff, though, isn’t it? It’s also cool to see Tiger so genuinely excited about his “mentee.”

We all know the story of how, after September 11, Woods re-evaluated his charitable endeavors and began to conceive of the Tiger Woods Learning Center. He’s spoken passionately about the students who have made their way through the various programs in the past, and there’s no doubt he cares deeply about the TGR Foundation’s efforts, but seeing a thin slice of that reality is awesome.
