TITLEIST THE #1 BALL IN GOLF ha launched some mid-season new products, and acquired a KJUS a premium sportswear provider.

ON THE CLUB SIDE. The New Ultralight Driver TS1 is now availble for purchase in your pro shops and retail stores.

The new driver was developed as part of the new Titleist Speed Project, and the new 275 kight gram-weight was created.

Because you can swing as smooth and easy as you want, and ball just takes off. The distance feels effortless.”

“With our four new models-TS1, TS2, TS3, and TS4-we know that any golfer who walks into a fitting. Can find a Titleist Driver that will max out their speed and performance,” said Talge.

The TS1 driver with it’s 275 gram weight, makes it 45 grams lighter than TS2, 8 gram lighter head, that will equal faster clubhead speed.

The Ultra-lightweight stock shafts include the Fujikura Air Speeder and MCA Fubuki Max Velocity at 40 or 45 grams. Lofts are at 9.5, 10.5, (RH-LH) and 12.5. MAP $499.00
