    Im always skeptical of marketing, but have yet to hear a bad thing about the SIM or SIM Max, wonderful trip boys, really enjoying looking on.

    This is such an awesome experience! I am so jealous and so pumped for you guys while at the same time feeling a bit relieved. I need to keep improving to go on one of these trips some day as I do not want to make a fool of myself as I slice my first drive a fairway over! Just amazing! Congratulations and I need more fitting and kingdom pics to get my fix!

    I will be doing my full write up when I get home as well but all I can say is this was an out of this world experience. Thank you so much to the people at GolfWRX and taylormade that made this possible.

    @jimbonecrusher thats awesome man. Sounds like a really terrific experience.

    you get a pass on the iron covers since it was for checked baggage, but don’t go posting pictures with them now at your home club!

    If you don’t mind, can you tell us about the driver fitting? What was their approach to getting you dialed in? Was it pretty obvious after seeing the Titleist which head to try? Or did you experiment with SIM/Max in different lofts and even different adapter settings until you got it right?

    Also, did they give any insight to a lot of the tour guys starting off with Max? Was it due to wet conditions in Hawaii?

    safe travels back, everyone!

    Sounds like a whirlwind experience! I'd like to hear more about the Truss putters and the ideas behind them. I'd also like to hear more about your fittings for the putters with Duane! It must feel great to pick up that much yardage with a proper fitting on your driver!

    Everyone needs to lighten up on Bonecrusher and his iron covers. He does still wear steel spikes in his golf shoes and he wears them anywhere he pleases including on his mother-in-law's new wood flooring.

    Since I don’t think anyone actually responded to this. The short answer is yes, as I was lucky enough to get fitted at The Kingdom 2 springs ago outside of winning anything on here. The long answer is you need to have a fitter who is in good with them, or your head pro (if you’ve got one) reach out and see if they have availability when you’re going to be out there. They would then have to charge that fitter/pro as I don’t believe outside cash is an option. Expect to spend a good chunk on the experience, even more if they build you a club right there, but know it’s the coolest day ever and in my opinion worth it for a bucket list type trip. Or, last way to get there is be a celebrity or athlete and have your agent reach out, and maybe Trottie will even get you on his podcast lol. Hope it helps.

    Do the guys at the kingdom check swingweight and add weight when needed? Do they toy with different shaft lengths to try to optimize strike?

    That’s great - thanks so much for the insight @Djuga06. I’m sure my club can connect me so just need to figure out my schedule...guess I’ll be trying to come up for an excuse for a work trip out there!

    Really appreciate it!

    @hurley999s 999,

    I started out hitting a few drives with my driver. I must admit that I wasn't hitting the ball the greatest. I was rushing my swing/transition and kind of showing my misses. This seemed to be beneficial, because Perry was able to fit not only for when I flush a ball, but he got to see my normal miss (high toe spinner to the right) and see how much ball speed was lost and the ball flight. I was amazed at how I was seeing almost 4000rpm on that miss. Since I play the 915D3, the natural transition was to the SIM. The SIM Max would have been better if I was playing a 915D2. The SIM also spun less, so getting me back down to the 2500 rpm level was the goal.

    We did try the stock 10.5* setting, but plus the 9.75* setting. I was able to get better numbers in the 9.75* setting, so that is where I will have it set. I started out with the 6.5 70g Smoke Yellow and began hitting it really good from the start. I thought that I would be fit into a Fuji Pro 2.0 7x, but I hit the 6x and it didn't really work for me, so we stuck with the Smoke yellow. When I went to the 3w, we started with the 15* with the Fuji Pro 2.0 7x. I was hitting it a little high, and the spin numbers were good. I then tried the 14* and I couldn't get the ball up in the air as much as I needed so we went back to the 15*. I wanted to hit a draw, but was having a hard time turning it over. Perry then adjusted the adapter to the upright setting. That brought the ball flight down a little and allowed me to hit a draw. I will be doing a little bit of testing when I receive the 3w between those two settings to see which I want to play the most.

    The reason that I heard for some guys like DJ hitting the Max is because they fly the ball far enough that they don't need the roll experienced from the lower spin SIM. These players can fly the ball far enough and the extra roll can lead to rolling through the fairway. Hitting the Max still offers the numbers they want without the fear of having a runner that places them in the rough. Sometimes too much roll is a bad thing.

    No need to roast. Good job man. Things like this hook you into golf even more! I was just busting you chops on the iron covers.


    love the review.
