Fit for a Major: The Story Behind Adam Scott's New Titleist 913D3 Driver
Posted: 26 April 2013
Most players don't like to make too many equipment changes before a major, but after working closely with the team on the Titleist Tour Van, Adam put a new driver in his bag - the new Titleist 913D3.
To get the scoop, Team Titleist checked in with Titleist Tour Representative Chris Tuten.
"We were on the range at the Tampa Bay Championship a few weeks ago with Adam and working through a number of different options to help optimise launch, flight and distance with the driver," said Tuten.
"At the end of the session, we built Adam a new 913D3 9.5º driver with a Graphite Design Tour AD DI 8, X flex graphite shaft at 44.75" and dialed it in with the A•1 (neutral) SureFit Tour Hosel setting."
With the new driver in-hand, Adam set off to work on putting the club through its paces.
Following several practice rounds leading up to the Masters, Adam was full of confidence in his new driver.
"Adam was really happy with the performance of the 913D3. He was getting a higher ball flight without increased spin and seeing longer carry distance - which would be beneficial to him at Augusta National and going forward," added Tuten.
The new 913D3 made its tournament debut in Adam's bag at the Masters, and it routinely set him up for birdie chances throughout the week.
His solid driving was crucial in shooting a back-nine 33 to get him into the playoff, which he won in dramatic fashion.
Here is another quick look at the specs on Adam's new driver...
