i don't know exactly. you should be more concerned with ball speed.

i do know my ball speed with driver is 165-167.

ball speed is typically 1.5 times swing speed...

and unless you are getting a ridiculous amount of spin on the ball, the higher the swing speed=the higher the ball speed... i would think as a golf pro, you would know that...

i do know that, but i don't care about clubhead speed. ball speed is the more important #.

my spin rate is around 3000 rpms. launch angle around 10 with a 9.5* driver.

i guess that's a little high even thought it's summer. our course rating is 75. if i'm out there dropping 74's i guess if i had one it would be around scratch.

i'm a golf pro, not tour pro. big, BIG, difference.

i'm a +6 hcp at folding shirts though.

Around 98-107mph at Sports Authority. I always wonder how acurate their device is though.

Seth - Between 100 and 105 as of two days ago... first time swinging a driver since last summer so it will probably increase quite a bit.


No it won't. If you are swinging 100-105, it might increase a couple mphs at best.

I can get it to around 120 if I swing like an asshole with a stiff shaft. If I stay within myself with my xstiff shaft I'm around 105-108. I don't really need the xstiff but I got a good deal on the club and I got no problem getting it in the air with 8.5 loft. I'll take a little to stiff over a little to whippy any day.

Titleist 910 D2 9.5  PX stiff
