Spotted: 2017 Titleist irons at the Sanderson Farms

Published

on

We spotted new Titleist irons at the Sanderson Farms Championship, where they were being tested by Scott Stallings and Matt Jones. The irons appear to be early prototypes intended for release with Titleist’s 2017 iron line.

The back of the prototype irons were covered with tape, but it’s clear that they were being tested against Titleist’s 716 iron line, including the 716 T-MB irons. All irons being tested appeared to be long irons.

Is this the new AP2?

Is this the new AP2?

Titleist generally releases a new line of irons every other year. The company’s 716 line (MB, CB, AP2, T-MB and AP1) was released in the fall of 2015, and tour players began using the clubs in competition in July 2015. The 714 irons were released in the fall of 2013, and the 712 irons were released in the fall of 2011.

Consider this initial testing, and expect changes to be made to the design of the clubs based on player feedback between now and their expected release to PGA Tour players in July 2017.

Published

on

L.A.B Golf has soft-launched its new MEZZ.1. Proto, which is currently limited to just 1,000 individually numbered putters.

The new mid-mallet putter is fully CNC machined from a billet of 6061 aircraft aluminum (body) and 303 stainless steel (midsection) for what L.A.B are calling their “best-feeling putter to date”.

The new addition includes 10 weights (eight on the bottom, two on the sides) that allow the company to individually build each putter to a golfer’s exact specifications.

Golfers can also choose their preferred alignment aid, with blank (no marking), line, and dot all offered with the new MEZZ.1 Proto.

The putter comes equipped with a headcover and is available to purchase now at LabGolf.com for $600.00.
