Hey pards, have you taken a look at the those new Titleist drivers that just went on the USGA's conforming list of driver heads? The 910 D2 and 910 D3 with SureFit. Anyway, if you haven’t yet, take a gander. They look pretty cool and the equipment chat rooms are buzzing about them.
Already the Titleist 910 D3 Driver with a 445cc head is in play with many players on the PGA and European Tours - and in this week's Ryder Cup. Now a Titleist 910 D2 version, with a larger, 460cc head, will be available for the rest of us.
Titleist says its 910 metals are ' the longest, most stable the company has ever produced.' Titleist AP2 712 Irons Golfmagic understands fairway woods and hybrids are set to be launched later in the year.
Steve Pelisek, vice president of golf club sales and marketing for Titleist, told me at the recent launch at Walton Heath Golf Club: "910 metals feature patented, cheap golf clubs innovative SureFit Tour hosel technology that allows loft and lie to be independently adjusted and set for maximum effectiveness.
Both the Titleist 910 D2 Driver and 910D3 will be available in 8.5, 9.5 and 10.5-degree lofts in right and left-handed models. The key difference is the different-sized heads and while the 910D2 is made for 'maximum playabilty and forgiveness', the 910D3 has a deeper face and lower centre of gravity to generate a boring, penetrating flight, the pros and top amateurs prefer.
"The SureFit Tour hosel is a more powerful tool than anything currently in the market. It gives our Tour van fitter the chance to dial in the club that works best for our players."
