The new TS2 features several design elements that contribute to making it significantly longer than the previous 917 D2 including an extremely thin titanium crown that’s approximately 20% thinner.
The Mini Driver which TaylorMade offered in SLDR and AeroBurner models was a very cool product. It nicely bridged the gap between a driver and fairway wood. For a lot of players that was a perfect fit as the added loft and shorter shaft of the Mini gave them exactly what they needed.
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.
Featuring a three-piece construction the second generation Q-Star Tour is built with a thin and soft urethane cover for enhanced short-game spin and control as well as Srixon’s third generation Spin Skin coating for optimum spin in all scoring situations.
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.
The Z 785 driver is revolutionary for Srixon for a number of reasons but mostly because it produces up to 3 mph more ball speed than the previous model yielding up to ten more yards of total distance. The key to the impressive improvement is a new Ti51AF Cup Face which is lighter and significantly stronger allowing it to be made 10% thinner for more COR and ball speed at impact.
Also new in the Z woods family are the Z 585 driver a non-adjustable model with the same distance-inducing technologies as the Z 785 as well as Z F85 fairways and Z H85 hybrids.
Among those I’d start by looking at models from Bettinardi Evnroll SeeMore Happy and Bloodline. Each of these companies make high-quality products at varying price points. Furthermore they can perform exceptionally well provided you find one that fits your stroke eye and feel preference.
The win his second of the year puts the Ryder Cup hopeful in the FedEx Cup playoffs lead with a solid chance at the $10 million bonus. For his efforts DeChambeau took home a winner’s check for $1620000 as well as 2000 all-important FedEx Cup points.
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.
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.
None of the above matters if you can’t aim your putter correctly Experiment with offset and straight-in hosels — you’ll definitely aim one type better than the other. Then check the alignment marks. Do you prefer lines that run parallel to the target? How many lines? These are important questions that can best be answered through a proper fitting.
