Matching putter type to stroke shape isn’t a great fitting strategy. In fact research indicates that how you “release” the putter is much more critical. Bottom line: If the putterface is square to the target line at impact it doesn’t matter what it does during the rest of the stroke. Selecting the correct hosel can make all the difference here.
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.
To remedy that situation the folks at Titleist started the “Titleist Speed Project” a plan to develop faster woods that provide maximum distance higher launch and ultra-competitive performance overall.
As one would expect from a Mizuno blade the 919 Tour features a Grain Flow Forged HD (high density) construction from1025 Elite carbon steel for the soft responsive feel aficionados demand.
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.
This is DeChambeau’s second consecutive win in the FedExCup Playoffs giving him a big leg up on the competition for the $10 million bonus. For his trouble DeChambeau took home 2000 FedEx points and a winner’s check for $1620000.
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.
According to Brian Schielke marketing director at Srixon Golf the newest line of Z Series woods don’t simply represent an evolutionary improvement over the company’s past models but rather a “revolutionary” one and for good reason.
Putters with more forgiveness and stability like larger mallets typically provide superior distance control because they maintain consistent ball speed and roll even on mis-hits. Unless you’re exceptionally accurate with your contact point (repeatable impact in the center of the putterface) don’t fall overly in love with the more traditional head shapes.
Check them out and see if one is right for you but keep in mind the TS2 is aimed at those who want high launch low spin distance and forgiveness while the TS3 is aimed at those who want mid launch low spin and enhanced workability.
For those who see the athletic breathable design as “just a sneaker” the Ignite PWRSPORT also features a very strong lightweight TPU saddle and a thinner TPU material in high-stress areas for Tour-like performance in all types of turf conditions.
A versatile iron that can fit a wide variety of players from pros to better weekend warriors the 919 Forged fits snugly between the Tour and Hot Metal models. Built with the same Grain Flow Forged HD method as the Tour the Forged is made from Boron infused steel which is approximately 30% stronger than carbon steel.
