To be a fantastic ball striker, you need to compress the ball. That takes place with a reduced launch angle, high ball speed & centered contact. But! A lower launch angle will reduce your driver carry as well. Swinging at 108mph, the player was underperforming with a 270y carry. The struggle? Low launch, spin rates & just not enough ball speed. The player continued to get stronger with a proper strength & conditioning, but the equipment could not keep up.

Using a X-stiff (low launching) shaft is not feasible if we need to increase launch. Considering the physical conditioning of the player, we thought of utilizing 70g + shafts. Upon switching to a LAGP Tour AXS Red shaft, we noticed considerable improvements. Dispersion improved by over 20 yards while the overall carry increased by 24y (with a 10deg TSR3 head, adjusted to 11.5 deg). By using the CG settings on the driver head, we were able to increase the clublength by 0.25" from the current driver.
This would lead to overall playability & percentage fairways hit.
