Easy Million: Robert Gains 11 Yards With SUPER S Hybrid vs. His 7-wood
During a testing session at TPC Scottsdale, Robert went through the “Easy Million” challenge comparing his 7-wood to the new SUPER S Hybrid. Both at 20-degrees of loft, Robert was able to gain 11 more yards using the SUPER S Hybrid and commented that he’s able to work the ball better and keep it low when he needs or hit it high if the conditions call for that.
He’s one of the long hitters on tour off the tee with the driver … now he may be one of the long hitters with the hybrid too.
Watch the video below to see Robert go through “Easy Million” and to find out his thoughts about the SUPER S Hybrid
