Spotted: Titleist 915 Fairway Woods and Hybrids

Published

on

Titleist’s new 915 fairway woods and hybrids were spotted today at the 2014 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone CC, just one month after the Titleist 915D drivers were spotted on tour at the Quicken Loans National.

Titleist is mum on the details of the new clubs, but we can tell from the photos that there will be two new fairway woods: a 915F and a lower-spinning 915F.d. There will also be two new hybrids: a 915H and a lower-spinning 915H.d.

On the tech side, the entire 915 line of drivers, fairway woods and hybrids have adjustable hosels and slots on the front of their soles that likely increase ball speed and forgiveness, particularly on shots hit off-center.

    You guys need to stop worrying about the equipment and try to actually hit the stuff yall got.

    What kind of shaft is in the FD?

    • Dylan

      Aug 28, 2014 at 3:37 pm

      I just hit both the F as well as the FD last week, It’s stock shaft is an Aldila Rogue in FD and Diamana S+ in the F version.

      Cheers

    Are the sure fit adaptors the same as the 913’s????

  6. Bigo

    Jul 30, 2014 at 1:08 pm

    I would love to get my hands on the 915HD rescue wood with an 85xstiff shaft…. the 913HD already goes 280 here in Colorado

    The clubs look to be technologically advanced over previous Titleist models, but the paint-fill looks like it was done by an inexperienced counterfeiter. Hopefully the production model looks much more refined.

    These clubs looks cheap and dorky. I hope they perform better than they look. Not impressed.

    Don’t just a book by it’s cover. I have hit the full line of 915 metals. I gained 17 yards of carry over my 913 D2 and I dropped my spin rate by 700 RPM’s. The 915F and 915H were easer to hit and launched higher off of the deck with less spin. I hit all of 915’s with the same shafts and I have in my 913.

    So they pretty much took the Adams XTD sole design and gave it a much improved paint job…great!

    Jul 30, 2014 at 10:48 am

    The new alignment marker is GARBAGE. Hot, broiled garbage.

    I do not understand the move away from the standard mark. It looks like a rough draft sketch, or a knockoff. Everything else about these things looks sleek and refined, and then you’ve got a spooge mark on top of the club. Ridiculous.

    That said, I can’t wait to hit them.

  12. Mike

    Jul 30, 2014 at 8:54 am

    Interesting that they’re going back to club numbers while still including the loft on the hosel.

    The 915 hybrid 2/3 goes in the bag. Looking forward to test.

    Are yall really comparing Taylormade to Titleist???? At least Titleist doesn’t come out with new clubs every six months. Taylormade has to buy players Titleist doesn’t, players come to them. Taylormade is a joke in my opinion. Top Pro golfs leave Titleist bc they go for the money. Titleist knows players will come to them so they dont have to worry.

      Phil Michelson used to be with Titleist. Now He’s with Callaway. Last year in a tournament he was gaming a TM SLDR driver (well documented) that was painted over so as not to be identified. If he wanted to “step out” on his brand why didn’t he use the Titleist?

    • BcavWecllh

      Jul 30, 2014 at 11:34 am

      Do you really believe that players “come” to titlest? They are paying guys just like every mfg. You really think a player turns down dollars to play their equipment?? Doesn’t happen.

    • NG

      Jul 30, 2014 at 5:52 pm

      Absolutely brainwashed comment. The Phil comment says it all!

    Oh my Dear Lord. 913 f or 913h has better look than 915f or 915h. They also follow what taylormade do. Front c.g and I can’t see the defreny between the f.d with f or h with h.d. that can make customers confused. Haha but will see wich one is good. But because the looks. Nooo

    Titleist doing the low/forward CG with a slot? Looks like my TaylorMades just got validated. Loft Up+

    • MHendon

      Jul 29, 2014 at 5:12 pm

      Not sure where your getting the low/forward CG from, there’s no mention of that in the article but Titleist has always offered two models one with the CG farther back and one with it more forward. Plus the slot innovation or channel what ever you want to call it was being done by Nike and Adams before Taylormade. So no real credit to Taylormade on either one of those.

  19. MHendon

    Jul 29, 2014 at 11:30 am

    I think what these clubs show us along with everything else on the market is how worthless a patent is.

    Pretty. Slot make ball go farther is a good thing. Even if its copying everyone else.

    I liked this club when it was called compression channel and it was made by nike three years ago.

    • Steve

      Jul 28, 2014 at 11:43 pm

      Adams created the compression channel. Nike and innovation don’t even belong in the same sentence when it comes to golf equipment.

      • Robert G

        Jul 29, 2014 at 9:48 am

        Nike don’t belong? Please, Nike Covert and Covert 2.0 are some of the best woods made the last few years. Run the numbers against all the others, they beat out just about everyone.

        • RogerinNZ

          Jul 29, 2014 at 3:41 pm

          Robert, he said Nike AND Innovation,
          Meaning they don;t invent, just refine.
          I was at a TV sales presentation in 1989.
          The speaker kept saying we were First with this
          and that etc.All we wanted was the V2 or V3,like software !
          Covert 2 are Great not Covert 1!
          Smart move by Titleist to adopt whats newer and WORKS!
          I liked my VR Tour !

          Lol you just killed the credibility of all these club experts on here who weren’t even born yet when those clubs where introduced. Good work BcavWecllh I was pretty sure I’d seen some really old clubs with slots but didn’t have concrete prof.

          I have a set of 1979 Ben Hogan apex Director Irons& woods and the woods have a “speed slot” whittled into the sides and bottom

    Disappointing from titleist, nothing new or special. Hopefully performance speaks for itself. Anyone know when titleist will release 915 line?

    • JJ Man

      Jul 29, 2014 at 11:46 am

      Played with a clup pro who is playing in the PGA, so Titleist sent him the 915 – said he picked up 20 yards with it with same shaft

      • mhendon

        Jul 29, 2014 at 6:50 pm

        If he picked up 20 yards then his old driver was either persimmon or had a crack in the face. I don’t buy that for a second.

        • Regis

          Jul 30, 2014 at 11:33 am

          He lost me with the “I have a friend” intro only to be followed by a club pro playing “in the PGA”

        • BcavWecllh

          Jul 30, 2014 at 11:36 am

          Agreed. Do people realize how hard it is to pick up 20 yards?

          • DK

            Jul 30, 2014 at 12:38 pm

            Not that hard if you’re playing an old Titleist driver. If these new metals are significantly less spinning it’s possible…

        • MHendon

          Jul 30, 2014 at 5:32 pm

          That was kind of my point DK, but he’s a club pro so I doubt he was gaming anything much more than a year old.

  25. Mateo

    Jul 28, 2014 at 7:17 pm

    Yes please. 910’s were amazing. Still using them.
    913’s weren’t very good.
    Can’t wait to try these.

  26. WarrenPeace

    Jul 28, 2014 at 7:06 pm

    Titleist hybrid.d with a slot- too much horsepower!! Glad they kept the cool black finish- when can I hit these?? Give us a release date Titleist!!

  27. jericho

    • Shweg

      Jul 28, 2014 at 8:10 pm

      I would actually compare to a nike vr compression channel

    • Jim

      Jul 28, 2014 at 9:10 pm

      Adams was first i believe which is why taylormade bought adams and then threw up on the brand. But anyway who cares i think they look slick im a ping guy but will definitely sample the kool aid . High five ! how much ?

      • Steve

        Jul 28, 2014 at 11:45 pm

        Funny, Ping is who it looks to me like they are trying awfully hard to mimic. i series fairways/hybrids look suspiciously similar.

        • mhendon

          Jul 29, 2014 at 6:54 pm

          Actually they look suspiciously like the 913’s which looked suspiciously like the 910’s which where on the market before the Ping I series of woods you’re comparing them to.

    Jul 28, 2014 at 6:35 pm

    Here’s hoping Titleist goes back to more traditional none adjustable woods and hybrids.

    • ng

      Jul 29, 2014 at 12:38 pm

      The cycle will come around. A new line of clubs every 2 years means it may be back sooner than you think.

    • Red

      Jul 29, 2014 at 2:11 pm

      I dont know if it will happen the adjustable heads just make it too easy to fit more golfers

    • John

      Jul 30, 2014 at 2:18 pm

      better hope for a sleeve of balata balls and a chance encounter with Doc Brown, in that case.

      • MHendon

        Jul 30, 2014 at 11:29 pm

        I’ll pass on the balata’s, I’m some what of a traditionalist but I’m not crazy. lol

What GolfWRXers are saying about trying single-length irons after Bryson DeChambeau’s U.S. Open win

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing a ‘single length iron re-boot’. WRXer ‘disco111’ asks fellow members if anyone is now going to adopt the single-length iron strategy following Bryson DeChambeau’s incredible recent play, and WRXers have been having their say on the single length approach.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Lobber: “I played one length for a bit and actually did quite well with them. But I think the real key to success is bulking up and adding 40 lbs!”
  • puttingmatt: “I would say try them, to each his own. That said, thinking success in the professional ranks rarely passes down to the everyday amateur, especially in equipment. I would suggest golfers stop comparing themselves to the professional players, and while you may think you can play like the new U.S. Open champion with clubs like these, reality, begs to differ.”
  • sdedalus23: “I set about this summer to make the game easier through club setup. To do so, I was going to either get the cobra forged tec blacks one length or the Ping G410’s. I went with the one lengths (4-G) to give them a try. I haven’t found problems with gapping thus far, but the short irons are a bit of a challenge. I am a high ball hitter, and they hit it incredibly high; so high that I have had a bit of a problem in the wind. I also found that my 54 and 60, which are still variable length, became less consistent with half shots due to the differences in length. Overall, my scores haven’t changed much (still mid to low 70’s) as they are generally predicated on how I am driving the ball because my iron play generally sucks. “
  • scotterhd2: “This thread got me. Have a set of F8 OL irons in the backup bag. Just ordered a JumboMax Ultralite grip. I think I’m going to put it on the PW and give them another test.”

GolfWRX Spotted: PXG Blackjack putter

Published

Since that debut earlier today, the putter and all of the details surrounding it are now live at PXG.com

A post shared by Bob Parsons (@drbobparsons) on

If there is one underrated part of PXG’s club lineup, it’s the company’s putters. They pack a lot of technology into both traditional-style putters and more modern designs.

Technology

  • Optimized face pattern – Like with previous PXG putters, the pyramid face pattern optimizes the ball speed across the putter face by reducing speed on center strikes while also retaining speed towards the heel and toe, all providing a soft feel. The face ensures consistency in all parameters that affect roll including; initial ball velocity, launch angle, spin rate, and skid.
  • Tungsten weighting – For maximum stability, the putter has an added tungsten frame along the perimeter to boost MOI and create a deeper center of gravity. The Tungsten works alongside the lightweight aluminum frame to remove mass away from the center while still having ports for weight customization.

Specs, price, and availability

Based on Mr. Parsons’ post, the putter will be available for order starting October 13th, although a retail price has not been set yet. Like other putters in the PXG line, it will come with a number of hosel configurations, and thanks to the adjustable weighting, it can be built exactly to the desired spec.
