Chris Tuten, a Titleist tour rep and expert club fitter, is one of the most interesting men in golf. Tuten, a former assistant golf coach at the University of Florida, is articulate and straightforward. When he talks about life on the PGA Tour, people listen.

Question: Do you consider 45 inches to be standard length for a driver?

Tuten: Yes, 45 inches is Titleist standard, because it’s the best combination of distance and accuracy. But keep in mind (because there is no industry standard for measuring length) a 45-inch driver from Titleist is a quarter inch shorter than many other 45-inch drivers.

Question: How long are drivers on the PGA Tour?

Tuten: Rickie Fowler, 45 and a quarter. Zach Johnson, same thing. Ben Curtis is one of the longest at 46, but he’s been messing around with a 45-inch driver. On the short side, Geoff Ogilvy is 44 and a quarter. So is Bobby Gates. Bobby is one of the tallest guys out here (6-foot-5). You look at him on the range, it looks like he’s playing a kid’s club.

Question: So what’s the lesson here?

Tuten: All golfers are individuals, and there is no such thing as fitting a player strictly by the way he looks.

Question: Ogilvy’s driver is different from most, isn’t it?

Tuten: Of all the players I know, Geoff is the most upright and the most shut with a driver. You might not think that’s the proper fit for a Tour player. You might think all Tour players play open (faced) golf clubs. Well, they don’t.

Question: Is there something else to be learned?

Tuten: Know your own swing, play your own game.

Question: What is the No. 1 invention that has made fitting simpler and quicker on the PGA Tour?

Tuten: The adjustable hosel. It is amazing. It has basically taken the handcuffs off fitting. We are able to do it (change loft or lie) much more precisely than before.

Question: Before, meaning the era of changing loft or lie with a bending bar?

Tuten: Yes. Bending works, but it isn’t always very precise. You bend a club, and sometimes a player will ask you to bend it back to where it was before. Good luck with that.

Question: So, with the adjustable hosel, you can do or undo all these lofts and lies?

Tuten: Absolutely. When I get a player who needs a certain lie angle, I’m able to fit four different effective loft changes within that lie.

Question: How many Tour players use a 13.5-degree 3-wood as opposed to a 15-degree 3-wood?

Tuten: I would say about 40 percent play the lower loft. You need a lot of clubhead speed to get it up in the air.

Question: Is the 2-iron dead?

Tuten: No. We have a lot of guys carrying them the second week of July (British Open week). We have to stock a lot of 2-irons over there. It’s a fun week.

Question: Does everybody out here on Tour used X-flex clubs?

Tuten: Mostly, yes. There aren’t many S’s. All these guys want to swing an X. A lot of times, I don’t want them to think about it, so I’ll take an X and put it in without tipping it (trimming the tip). That way it plays between an S and an X.

Question: How much do you normally tip on Tour?

Tuten: Our standard (for a driver) is an inch and a half. For Gary Woodland, it’s two inches.

Question: How impressive is this guy?

Tuten: Gary can lean back and hit his 2-iron 275 yards. It’s a real advantage to be able to drive it 350, and he can do it.

Question: Forget the Tour for a minute. Is this the Golden Age of golf clubs for consumers?

Tuten: I’ll say this: Golf clubs have never been better. I feel confident in saying that any golfer can find the perfect set.

EN Gros,

"Short is beautiful", (Shaft driver)

que le matos est au top de la tecnologie,
mais qu'il faut faire le bon choix, un golfeur = un matos spécifique,

qu'il n'y a que les pro, et au British de surcroit qui jouent encore le fer 2.

Que Gary Woodland .., non je préfère rien te dire, ca va te faire mal.. What a Face

Impressionnant le swing de Gary Woodland, très long mais avec un swing assez tenu sans compensation pour jouer loin. Il a un gros potentiel si le petit jeu suit.
