11 year old Thomas Sokolow, is a talented junior that has come to a transition point where the current kids clubs are not at the level to produce the optimal results for his swing as he has grown and increased strength over the past 6 months.

After collecting some swing and ball data on Trackman it was obvious that Thomas was losing lots of distance from producing way too much spin (4516 rpm) on his original driver, due to the loft at 16 deg, short length and the cheaper alloy material used in the kids club.

Thomas produced impressive swing speed 75pmh with his driver. After putting Thomas through our fitting process we ended up with an amazing 40 metre gain in distance due to a 15 mph increase in ball speed and a reduction of spin from 4516 rpm to 2705 rpm.  He was fitted to the Taylormade M2 10.5 deg head with a Matrix Reign MGC 55 A-Flex shaft at 43″ length tiped 0.5″.

We also went through the iron fitting process and helped Thomas gain an extra 10 metres per iron(He hit his 7iron and we test with 6iron heads for a total of 18m gain, but adjusted to 10m to match 7iron equivelent). I look forward to seeing Thomas progress in his golf career and look forward to helping him as he grows and gets stronger to hopefully one day fulfilling his dream of winning the US MASTERS.

If you’re serious about seeing young talent grow and improve it’s extremely important to get the clubs custom build to size , weight and flex to give them the best opportunity to produce results.

New Irons

Shaft

iSeries SRT

The iSeries SRT iron shaft offers juniors a premium lightweight option for irons also incorporating a .580 butt diameter. The SRT iron shaft uses the same technology as the iSeries line of iron shafts, it is available in one flex and can be tipped to multiple stronger flexes as it is a blank.
