The PGA merchandise show was held last month in Orlando Florida, Golfers on Golf was there to look at the newest, the latest, the improved and the products on the shelves or coming to your pro shop or golf store soon.
One of the major equipment companies at the show was Titleist.
At the end of 2014 or into 2015 Titleist has released or updated it’s line of clubs on several fronts.
The new Titleist 915 Driver, is expected to be the hottest new driver on the market this year. It’s success has already become apparent on the PGA Tour, with Titleist staff players Jordan Spieth and Jimmy Walker already winning with the 915 in their bag. Zach Johnson has also played well the new driver as well.
A new concept called “Active Recoil Channel” technology is the key to the new line of 915 metal woods. 915 is not a driver alone, but a full line of fairway woods as well. The new technology produces a lower spin rate and a higher ball speed, producing more distance without sacrificing forgiveness.
“This line of drivers are a real game changer for us,” said Dan Stone, Vice President of Research-Development, Titleist Golf Clubs.
“We’ve increased speed and lowered spin, without sacrificing MOI or forgiveness, and we’re the first to get that combination right. The Active Recoil Channel is a major technical leap in the area of spin reduction. Players who need spin control have seen gains of 15 yards. The Active Recoil Channel has been in the works for four years, but this type of technology requires some fine tuning if your going to do it right.”
The 915 D3 features a 440cc pear shape that is forgiving, the 915 D2 is a 460cc for maximum forgiveness and a slight draw basis.
While the 915 line of drivers, fairway woods and hybrids are moving quickly. There is more to look forward to on the line of Titleist clubs.
