Not sure what I am going to do hybrid wise yet. I was fit for the 915H 18. Was better for me than the HD. But I still don't like the look of either of the new hybrids. Since it's snowing now here I won't be able to do much testing for a while but I'm sure one of them will make it into my bag by next year.

What spin rates was the 6.75 loft producing in the driver?

I spin it between 2300-2600 on average. I've played drivers for a long time to help keep that down. Took me a long time to find a driver to spin under 3000rpm which is why I've played 7.5 drivers or less for the last 5 years.

How did you like the strong lofted FD compared to the strong F and the 15 FD and f?

Same as the post above I used to struggle with fairway woods until I found out that I needed to go to a lower loft. I launch the ball fairly high with a bunch of spin so the normal F and 15* models don't work as well for me. Although this years 915F 13.5 would have been my next choice.

Updated again, hybrid is still a funny club for me.  Testing out the 17.5 HD at a 3hybrid length to help reduce the peak height and the spin

Also some new exciting stuff comig in a month for the shorter sticks in the bag.

Might I inquire where you got the heads digitally lofted?  Measured in the A1 position?  the 915 driver 6.7* actualy vs printed 7.5* on the club head, or is that a d1 open position?

How has your Titleist heads played against some of the other new stuff?

So I went up to Oceanside TPI Facility to spend 3-3.5 hours with Bob Vokey working on wedges. We first started inside where Dino gave me a tour of the facility. Then we went over to the workshop area where Bob and I talked a little about my game, the different wedges I have played, the different types of grinds he does and some of what some tour players are using. At this time Dino took my wedges and 9 iron and spec'd them out. Once we talked for a bit about all stuff Vokey and Canada, we jumped in a cart and drove to the back of the range. We first started hitting shots with my 9 iron and PW to get some yardage gaps. Then we did some work with my current TVD 50 and I told Voke I wasn't happy with it as I didn't like the grind on it and didn't think I really needed a grind. I also told him I really liked the older 200 shape. We then hit some different bounce 50's and determined the 12 was the best and he's going to grind the profile to look like a 200 series. Then we moved on to the sand and lob with fuller swings. Found that 50-55-60 was the right gapping for yardages for me and a 46* was actually quite a good fit for me. We hit sole 3/4 to fuller shots and narrowed down the 55 to a tvd M and a 54.14 bent to 55. We also narrowed down the 60 to 3 wedges. A 60.07 S, a Hand Ground V grind and a M grind with a pro groove. We found that making the lie angle 1* more upright from my normal 2*'flat helped a lot as well. From there we went to hit pitch shots from 30-50 yards over a bunker and then some different spots around the green including 2 different bunkers some uphill short sided lies and some of my hardest spot the basic 50 yard pitch shot. From the pitch shots we found the 55* wedges were about equal and the M Grind and V grind 60's were the best. From the bunker the 55TVD was better and the 60.07 S and the 60M was the best. From the short sided shot the 60 S was the best. With the 60M being s close second. Then from my struggle distance 40-50 yards the TVD55 was the best. We determined the best wedges for my bag were the 54TVD bent to 55 and the 60M Hand Ground with a Pro Groove as around the greens and especially in the bunker it performed the best all around. Bunkers are the best part of my short game. After we went back and discussed shafts, grips, stamping, different cosmetic grinds like the thin top line I added to the 60M. My 46/50 SM5 will both have a 200 series toe profile grind applied to them. The TVD55 will have the older TVD profile, so not as round ground into it. And the 60M will have a thinner Topline and a pro groove grind. Overall such a great process and totally worth the price. Voke will now take the specs and notes and hand grind the 4 raw tour wedges for me and ship them to me in the next few weeks. Can't wait to get them. Will post pics when I can.

Putter fitting was good too, learned a lot about my stroke and what I need to do, also learned that I am better with sight dots over sight lines, and a little toe flow doesnt hurt but a plumbers neck works well too. We changed the loft on my 009 slightly and it seems to be very good for me. Although thats not stopping me from looking at some new puitters

Did you use a SAM PuttLab for the putter fitting? What was the difference btw sight dot and sight line for you? I've always wondered about that.
