Over the last month we have had some really good TS Speed Driver and FW Metal fitting’s where each golfer has gained an extra 15 – 30 yards in distance with a tighter dispersion of shots.
The TS2 Hits a more High Bomb flight and TS3 hits a lower more penetrating ball flight. Good to test both on GC2 and see which suits you best.
TS SPEED is the Number 1 and most played driver on the PGA Tour this year
