Robert Potter says:

Just wanna say again a MASSIVE thanks to TaylorMade Europe and Liam for
kitting me out and allowing me to be in their studio!
A fantastic day and to all Amatures, custom fitting on a Driver, in fact
ALL clubs is a must!
I still want it in Black though lol
Rick, thank you once again good buddy!

Cornwall1888 says:

I hope rob is as obsessed with his short game as he is with drivers, it’s
your short game that brings your handicap down.

Niklas Holm Seistrup says:

Sorry Rick, but This Liam TM guy is pretty clueless.

90+% amateurs should not play a driver longer than 44″. Rob neither as the
looks of it.
How come he didn’t try different Shafts with different weight.

#1 and #2 In proper clubfitting is Shaft lenght and Shaft weight.
He adressed the lenght a little but not enough. No weight testing at all.
I love when Rob excellently pointed out, that he couldnt ‘feel’ the face.
So TM guy reasons with Technology – my goodness!!

What about weight and especially swing weight to make sure Rob gets the
feel of the Club he wants?

Also flex has not Much to do with clubheadspeed. It’s about how forcefull
you swing is. Is it brutal and Quick or slow and smoooooooth. Not about
mph!!

This is NOT a fitting. This is a guy trying Two different clubs and
selecting the less bad alternative.
Calling this 15-20 session a fitting is a mockery to TRUE CLUB FITTERS.

Give a Real clubfitter 4 hours with Rob and you’ll see atleast twice as
Much distance gained. But more importantly – a Much, Much tighter
dispersion = long balls In the fairway almost every time.

No disrespect, but This really shows how little People know about fitting.
Even the big brand’s guys don’t know Much.
It’s sad really.



Jordan Cox says:

How come his swing speed is so low? Only around 90mph? It looks like it is
going quite fast, but he’s almost 30mph slower than PF but you can’t see
that with the naked eye? This is also killing me, I’m a reasonably strong
young guy and for some reason I see old guys swinging over 100mph and I’m
stuck around 100!! How can I increase this, I would ideally love just over
110 so I’m not looking for insane distance, but I would like my average
drive to be around 270 with a good one looking at 300. Cheers Mr Rick!

Robert Morley says:

Question for you Rick. Why do grips taper?
From the snows of Ontario.

brown55061 says:

Anyone here ever backweight your clubs? Back in the day people claimed to
get better feel and speed out of their clubs by putting lead tape under the
grips. I’ve never tried this on a newer big head driver. It would be
interested to see if that theory plays out on a trackman or if it’s just an
old wives tale.

bibilolo78 says:

Burner09. .10.5 deg…regular shaft…88mph swingspeed
Always 250 yards…And more
Why spent money?…lol

Michael Rolton says:

Encountering a bit of turf interaction before you hit there, what are you
on? What is wrong with, “hit the ground first?” Even better, ‘you hit the
mat before you hit the ball.’

john anderson says:

Can you do a series of videos trying to get Rob down to a Single Digit
handicapper???

gary etherson says:

Good to see the myth busted that high lofted drivers are needed for higher
handicaps. Its purely down to angle of attack + necessary loft to hit good
launch numbers. a lot of high handicaps hit down so a high loft suits. Not
all like it is perpetuated in golf mags and online videos.

Killacamfoo O.G. says:

Almost no golfer should be playing a driver over 45″. Unless you always
want max distance and don’t care about direction at all, then by all means
play a 46″+ club.

Carl Broadbent says:

Omg. I was there on the 12th wish I’d of known. Would have been great to
meet someone famous. And rick of course. Ha ha 

Andy M says:

Actually a decent swing. Top of the backswing might lead to
inconsistencies.

gordon o'riordan says:

Nice to see at least 1 decent driver in the clip. The Callaway x2 hot
sticking out from the bag lol

Whereismyball says:

Wth! That was quick!… I took 1 hr to fit my sldr…

Iain Jevons says:

Great stuff. Love seeing the ‘normal’ golfer videos, especially as
Dobby always comes out with something that gives me a giggle. Would love to
have the spare cash to get fitted for a new driver, I don’t think I get the
best out of mine.

evanc1974 says:

Rob has mentioned in several prior videos that he had an accident which has
slowed his swing speed down significantly. Lay off the guy. It takes stones
to have thousands of people watch you hit shots with a camera in your face.

Michaud Venant says:

Is it just me or does any one else thinks that the fly on the wall does
interrupt the fitter quite a lot 🙂 Your input is great but I would of
loved to hear the more concise story of Liam. But, Dobby really stole the
show ;P 

PingDrv00 says:

Why did he not at least try the R15?

Richard Brooks says:

what loft on the Aeroburner??

Martin Ritchie says:

Crazy that TM try and sell clubs at 46inches long. That guy Rob should be
using a driver closer to 44 inches to get centred strike. If he were to get
that driver cut down to proper length the swing weight would be
ridiculously light.

MrDazza64 says:

There may of been more to this video off camera? But I am quite surprised
how quick this fitting was done. Rob obviously must of been happy with the
numbers and stats achieved with the Aero Burner, to go for it. As he
clearly states he’s not keen on the look…’colour’…or lack of ‘feel’ off
the club face. Very surprised that TM don’t have interchangeable heads and
shafts on all models in their main fitting centre!? Also, why wasn’t SLDR
or R15 even considered? The colour ways would certainly suit Rob’s eye
better (R15 is available in black finish) and surely offer him better
‘feel’ off the club face? Lastly, for anyone thinking I’m just another TM
hater…my last three driver & fairway combo’s have all been TM. Good luck
with your new driver Rob, hope you rip it matey! Regards, Dazza. 

SirBigSpur06 says:

Everyone needs to stop freaking out about this. No, it wasn’t a full blown
fitting, and TM prob did this for free in exchange for the publicity on
Rick and Pete’s channels, but who cares? 

Ethan Pietig says:

Rick, thank u for doing these videosni oove the reviews and I get my clubs
based on your opinion

scottpnovak says:

Is that Peter in the background drinking a beer? 

Peter Rodriguez says:

Very interesting fitting. Of course big thanks to TMPC Belfry for allowing
rick to video tape Rob fitting. Rob Potter your commentary was great and
refreshing. +Rick Shiels PGA I think you can reach a bigger audience by
video taping more mid handicap players during a fitting session. Maybe a
left handed player. Thanks

penguinbmx says:

Lol 13 handicap? He must have a superb short game.
