The newest version also features a forged construction similar to the Z 585 and Z 785 irons but is built with a hollow club head and high-strength face insert that allows the club to behave more like a wood. What this means is higher launch higher flight and more distance for a wide variety of players.
This extra degree of strength allows for a thinner more flexible clubface and enhanced ball speed at impact. The thinner clubface along with a new hidden micro-slot in the sole not only increases COR but also expands the effective hitting area across a larger area. The micro-slot also allows for more weight to be redistributed for a lower and deeper CG location yielding improved launch on mid and long iron shots.
The new Titleist TS2 and TS3 drivers and fairway woods are the result of a concerted effort by the company to improve distance results in its long clubs. Titleist engineers have been designing top-notch drivers for some time as witnessed by major wins by players like Jordan Spieth Jimmy Walker and others.
