AeroTech launches TiFiber driver shafts on Tour

Published

on

Before AeroTech SteelFiber shafts became popular on the PGA Tour, the best golfers in the world almost exclusively used all-steel iron shafts. The SteelFiber shafts, made of graphite composite with a surface layer of steel, changed that. Big-name players like Matt Kuchar and Brandt Snedeker began using the SteelFiber shafts, leading to more PGA Tour players and regular golfers trying (and liking) them.

Now, AeroTech has developed a driver shaft that’s made with graphite composite and has a full layer of titanium fiber on the perimeter. The shafts are called “TiFiber,” and we spotted them this week at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

According to Chris Hilleary, President of AeroTech Golf Shafts, the layer of titanium adds hoop-strength stability and keeps the shafts from deforming during the swing and into impact. The result is a lower-spinning trajectory that creates a more penetrating ball flight.

On Tour, we spotted AeroTech’s new TiFiber “Tour 70” shaft that’s designed for higher swing speeds in F5 (Stiff) and F6 (X-Stiff) flex options. Hilleary says another TiFiber shaft is in the works: a Pro 60 shaft that’s slightly softer. He says it will benefit those who need a bit more launch and spin, but still want the added stability that titanium provides. While both the Pro 60 and Pro 70 are driver shafts, Hilleary says they can be cut down and turned into fairway wood shafts.

The TiFiber shafts ($395 each) will be available for purchase starting in January 2018, Also, be on the lookout our for an exclusive giveaway of the shafts in our GolfWRX forums in the coming weeks!

WITB Time Machine: Rory McIlroy’s winning WITB, 2014 PGA Championship

Published

on

It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years since Rory McIlroy outlasted Phil Mickelson at the 2014 PGA Championship. It’s even harder to believe McIlroy hasn’t hoisted a major trophy since his 2014 victory at Valhalla.

After a slow start to his final round, McIlroy tallied an eagle and two birdies on the back nine and his fourth major championship. Take a look at the clubs he played a decade ago in Kentucky.

Titleist launches Pro V1, Pro V1x and Pro V1x Left Dash balls with enhanced alignment

Published

on

Titleist has today introduced Pro V1, Pro V1x and Pro V1x Left Dash golf balls featuring enhanced alignment.

The new Enhanced Alignment aid is an extended alignment sidestamp designed for more precise aim and accuracy. The elongated sidestamp provides a built-in visual aid and measures over 65 percent longer than the standard Pro V1 sidestamp.

“Enhanced Alignment is designed for golfers who are seeking a more detailed, built-in alignment feature on their Pro V1, Pro V1x or Pro V1x Left Dash. We saw overwhelming interest in the single-colored line on Pro V1 Performance Alignment, and this is another alternative for players who prefer a slightly different look.” – Jeremy Stone, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball Marketing

In addition to Enhanced Alignment, Titleist offers more than 40 different alignment aid designs on Pro V1’s fourth pole – opposite the sidestamp – through custom order on Titleist.com.

Pro V1, Pro V1x and Pro V1x Left Dash Enhanced Alignment golf balls are available to order through titleist.com and at authorized Titleist retailers beginning on May 17 in the United States only. Enhanced Alignment is available globally on July 1.
