Remember the Mini came in 12° 14° and 16° models and had a 43.5″ shaft. If you want something like that a custom-fitted M4 fairway might be about right except it will probably offer even more ballspeed and forgiveness.
Replacing the previous Z 565 model is the new Z 585 which is designed to produce a higher straighter ball flight than the Z 785 with more forgiveness on strikes away from the enter of the clubface.
In addition a thinner clubface which is six grams lighter and the fastest of any Titleist driver thus far significantly increases ball speed at impact. The new lighter and thinner face is actually so thin the scoring lines need to be created by a laser. If you’re looking for a combination of distance and forgiveness the TS2 could definitely be the ticket.
Designed for discerning players that demand a soft forged feel enhanced workability as well as added distance and forgiveness both the Z 785 and Z 585 irons should make any traditionalist happy.
The Tour V.T. sole improves turf interaction as well. Both new models come standard with Nippon Modus steel shafts with a Miyazaki Kaula graphite shaft also available.
Start at address so you can ensure that you have a flatstick that fits your body and posture. Unlike full-swing clubs that droop and bend significantly in a dynamic motion putters stay about the same during the stroke so getting a length and loft that complement your setup is an important first step.
Bryson DeChambeau bested Tony Finau by four strokes and captured the Northern Trust at Ridgewood CC in New Jersey on Sunday with a final-round 69.
The TS fairways comes standard with a choice of Kuro Kage Black Dual Core 55 Tensei AV Series Blue 65 HZRDUS Smoke Black 70 and Even Flow T1100 White 75 shafts. Bryson DeChambeau won the 2018 Dell Technologies Championship with a 16-under-par total besting second-place finisher Justin Rose by two shots.
The Z 585 is slightly more forgiving and features a high-strength steel face insert in the forged clubhead for higher COR and ballspeed at impact. A new internal “speed groove” behind the clubface further enhances face flex across a larger area of the hitting zone for extra forgiveness on off-center hits.
For players who demand more workability in a driver and more specific tuning the TS3 is the choice. Both the TS2 and TS3 are available with Kuro Kage Black Dual Core 50 Tensei AV Series Blue 55 HZRDUS Smoke Black 60 and Even Flow T1100 White 65 shafts as well as other custom shaft options.
As is the case with the drivers the TS2 fairway features a fixed CG location that’s low and deep for high launching mid-spin shots while the TS3’s CG can be customized via Titleist’s SureFit CG technology. In general the TS3 will produce a slightly lower trajectory than the TS2 and offers more shot shaping versatility.
The new Z H85 hybrids are designed with a larger profile for more confidence at address and more overall forgiveness. The same stepped crown design featured on the Z-series fairways is also in play with the hybrids producing a lower CG for improved launch and distance characteristics.
