Adam Scott has an interesting stat after putting AutoFlex shaft in play

Published

on

Last week, we shared the news that Adam Scott has been testing and was planning to put into play the very buzz-worthy AutoFlex shaft into his Titleist driver (Adam Scott testing Korean AutoFlex shaft at 2021 Farmers Insurance Open).

The shaft is a unique profile that is lighter and much softer compared to traditional golf shafts played by fast swinging professions, and Adam is the first golfer to put one into play on the PGA Tour.

For the event, in which Adam finished tied for 10th, he averaged 294.6 yards off the tee which is down from his year to date listed driving average of 314 that ranks him 14th on the PGA Tour. Although this is a dramatic drop, it lined up almost identical to his numbers from the 2020 Masters, which was also played in soft conditions.

The big change was his driving accuracy at 42.86 percent, which, when combined with his distance, resulted in a total driving rank of 101—9 spots below his year-to-date rank of 92 (which would have dropped after the results from the FIO).

We’re not sure if this is just an anomaly or a trend from putting such a unique shaft into play, but with so many golfers looking for any way to add distance to their driver, this will continue to be an interesting story to follow.

    $800 to hit it squirrelly? No thanks. I’ll stay with my hand crafted black HZRDUS 75 6.5 with the only drawback being it goes too straight and is hard to work at times.

    watch Matt from TXG struggle with it as well, lot of pulls. Seemed like Adam missed left a lot; then he would over correct and push.

      Golf equipment has been gimmicky since they realized they could sell a “better” mousetrap.

    Certainly did not seem to be helping him at all. He was driving it all over the place, mostly left. Will be very interesting to see if he decides to keep it in the bag, which would mean he sees something.

    Cold, wet, and at sea level. Of course the distance numbers were down. That won’t forgive the accuracy numbers though. I believe he had a Ventus Red last time he teed it up on TV.

    Surprising move for Scott to put it in play and KEEP it in play when he hit those occasional left-2-left drives off the planet.
    Check out the video that TXG did if you want to see a measured performance of this unique and expensive ($800) shaft.
