In-hand pics! Titleist 913 Fairway Woods and Hybrids

Published

on

They’re now in tour players’ hands, and GolfWRX took some in-hand photos of the 913F and 913H.

We captured them in the Titleist tour van and on the range at the 2012 Barclays at Bethpage Black.

Some photos are below.

    Waiting to get paid so i can go and pick me up a 913H to go along with my new 913 D3 i just recently got. Never had i thought of playing with Titleist clubs but iam SO GLAD that i have seen the light. Just recently got the 913 D3 driver and LOVE LOVE LOVE it way better than the Nike Covert Tour i was playing. Now time to get me a Hybrid. Sadly though i cant switch irons I love my Mizzy MP-64s way to much haha

    They look they are set standard with an almost closed look to the face. In last year’s model I believe there were only 2 “click” options to open it up. I wonder if it will be like this for this years club.

    Cant wait for these bad boys to be released. Already talking to my guys at fairwaygolfusa.com about what shafts I need to put on them but might have to keep my Graphite Design BB’s from my 910’s. I got a chance to hit these and all I can say is that they feel hotter off the face than the 910’s.

    Aside from the hybrid driver and the “low spin” on the fairway driver, what are the improvements over last years?

    are the adaptors the same? so basically can you reuse premium shafts from the 910f?

    Is it a 913H or a H-D on picture #15? It looks so tiny and awesome.

    I like how they added the 913Hd this year. The 913H is definitely going on my Christmas list though.

The best golf clubs for the money

Published

What are the best golf clubs for the money?

It’s a common question golfers ask, and depending on your skill level and budget, the answer can vary greatly. So, to help you figure out what the best clubs for you are, we’ve broken it down into a few categories to help you in the decision making process.

Best golf clubs for the money

Beginner Golfer – Entry-level budget

Getting your first set of clubs is all about maximizing value to get enjoyment out of going to the course or the range and most often involves buying a complete package set. Could you go directly to a high-end fitter to have them set you up with thousands of dollars would of gear? Of course, but it would be like getting handed the keys to a supercar without ever having a driver’s license—drive over a few curbs with a starter car before taking those skills to a four-lane highway.

Now just because you’re looking at a box set doesn’t mean you don’t have options. Wilson, for example, offers various sized sets for golfers based on static height measurements—which is a perfect starting point. It’s important for you to start off on the right foot, and even if they aren’t a perfect fit, the closer you are to the ideal set will make getting started a lot easier and a lot more fun.

The other option is to buy used, and with so many resources available online including used specialty sites like GolfAvenue.ca, you can find clubs in the 5-plus-year-old category that are going to offer tremendous value if you know where to look. This way of shopping for clubs often requires a bit more research to make sure you are buying the best clubs suited for your game, but depending on what you buy, you could get many years out of clubs purchased this way.

Check out the podcast link below for the GolfWRX, On Spec Episode- Building a $500 golf bag:

Play a lot of golf, and looking for value

This is where I believe most golfers tend to fit in, and it is also where you have the greatest number of options when looking for equipment. The idea of value will mean different things to different people, but when looking to get the most out of your equipment, getting fit is going to offer the best long term value for your game.

Depending on where you are buying your equipment, you can still buy “new” but purchase a previous generation model to save sometimes up to 30 percent, and if you are one of the lucky ones that happen to fit into “off the rack” irons and wedges, minus a grip or lie adjustment, then you can once again shop for previous-generation gear and see huge savings while still getting the best equipment for you.

The other option of getting great value and great quality equipment is shopping DTC—direct to consumer. There are a number of brands that have forgone the traditional selling channels and allow you to purchase custom-fit clubs direct for up to half the cost of traditional manufacturers including Ben Hogan, New Level, and Sub 70. These brands offer top-of-the-line gear, but thanks to their marketing approach and streamlined operations you can get fantastic value and high-quality gear built just for you.

Play a lot of golf – spare no expense

If you fit into this category, you are going to have the greatest number of options when it comes to finding equipment. Just like with any consumer product/experience, this approach is the most expensive, but it also puts the highest value on maximizing performance over anything else.

The most common scenario is working with a brand agnostic club fitter and if you are looking for one near you, check out our GolfWRX best drivers of 2020 article for our list of some of the best club fitters and facilities in North America.  Brand-agnostic fitters won’t limit your set by brand and will instead go through every option within your fitting parameters to make sure you are getting the most out of your clubs.

The best golf clubs for the money but will ultimately be based on your budget but the price doesn’t have to be a reflection of the amount of fun you can have playing golf.

Published

Greetings, GolfWRXers!

WITB (both member and Tour) has been at the heart our site since day one. Today, it’s a major component of our front page content, and there is no shortage of member WITB threads in our forums as well.

What we’d like to do is standardize the presentation of some member WITBs and member WITB photos so we can feature them on the front page. More to the point: We want to showcase our members’ WITB in the same way we do, say, Tiger Woods on the front page.

We think that beyond the “seeing your name in lights” factor, it’ll create some really cool material for the front page and it will also be incredibly informative and helpful for fellow members.

So, what do we mean by “standardizing” the presentation?

Look at Tiger Woods’ 2020 Farmers Insurance WITB below.

Driver: TaylorMade SIM (9 degrees)

Shaft: Mitsubishi Diamana D+ White 60 TX

3-wood: TaylorMade M5 (15 degrees)

Shaft: Mitsubishi Diamana D+ White 70 TX

5-wood: TaylorMade M3 (19 degrees)

Shaft: Mitsubishi Diamana D+ White 80 TX

Irons: TaylorMade P7TW (3-PW)

Shafts: True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100

Wedges: TaylorMade MG 2 “Tiger MT Grind” (56-12, 60-11 degrees)

Shafts: True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400

Putter: Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS

Grip: Ping PP58 Blackout

Golf Ball: Bridgestone TourB XS

Grips: Golf Pride Tour Velvet Cord

Additionally, we will showcase an image of the club in question for each section and a full bag shot (minimum dimensions 1024×768) as the featured image. For the purposes of the thread, feel free to add all the photos at the end or insert them throughout.

In addition, feel free to add a paragraph or two about your set up, the method behind your madness, your age, current handicap index etc. Anything you feel that’s relevant and that you think your fellow WRXers will find informative and beneficial!

We’d like you, GolfWRXers, to share your WITBs in this thread using the format above.

So get submitting your WITB in our forum as we’ll be publishing them on our front page over the coming days and weeks!

Share your WITBs here.

What GolfWRXers are saying about ‘hitting it 300+ yards using a stiff shaft’

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the use of a stiff shaft and whether it can provide both distance and accuracy. WRXer ‘ebibler’ kicks off the thread with this problem:

“I’ve been getting up to the tee lately and haven’t the slightest clue where my next drive is going. I have always played an X flex with a nice tight draw, but this year I seem to be hanging shots to the right(probably my hands or my swing but…….lol)

I currently play an F9 with the Atmos in X, it hits bombs, but they are useless unless I can control them. I’m normally around 3 Bills off the tee, any chance a Stiff flex would help? My town has zero options for fitting, so I come to you guys for help!”

And our members have been getting involved in the discussion with lots of advice offered up in our forums.

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.

  • Jc0: “Consider a heavier weight if you are having control issues. Stiffer and heavier usually help with control.”
  • mcounci2: “Not me, but one of the guys in our regular foursome has an incredibly smooth swing and is about 310-330 with a stock stiff hzrdus smoke black TS3.”
  • Leftlove94: “If I get into one I can hit it 300+. Not as frequently as I used too, which is why I’m hitting a Stiff shaft now. Had one drive last week at 305 but it was a touch downhill. Average drive was about 275-280 w/ 5 yards of fade. A draw adds 5-10 for me.”
  • Booker: “One of my playing partners hits a 910 d3 with the stock made for 72s ahina. Plays to a three handicap Doesn’t care about shaft flexes or weight, just kills it—174mph ball speed with this thing. Also still plays a vsteel spoon with a 75g NV, no problem carrying the spoon 265. Going on ten years with that driver and 22years with the spoon.”

Entire Thread: “Anyone hitting it 300+ yards using a stiff shaft?”
