Titleist Vokey Limited Edition Indigo Wedges

Posted at 12:47 PM by Michael Chwasky

Vokey_640
For a limited time (starting on July 16) Titleist Vokey Design SM5 wedges ($185) will be available with an Indigo finish. The unique PVD finish will wear over time but won't rust like raw finish wedges. Like other SM5 wedges the Indigo model features Spin Milled TX3 grooves and TX3 scorelines to produce more spin for enhanced control on both full shots and those around the greens. 

"We've had the Indigo finish in WedgeWorks in the past, but only in the 400 Series. People went crazy for them," Vokey said. "We took them to the PGA Show this year and everyone was gravitating towards the Indigo finish and asking us when we would offer it in SM5. Even some of the Tour guys saw it and loved it, so we've decided to put out a limited release."

The iridescent blue wedges come in two mid-bounce grinds and eight loft, bounce, and grind combinations. The M grind features a crescent-shaped sole with a relieved heel, toe and trailing edge, while the S grind features a fuller sole with moderate heel relief. 

The new Vokey SM5 Indigo wedges are available through Vokey.com and at select golf shops.

Scotty Cameron Putter Fitting Gallery Now Open to Public!

Posted at 10:18 AM by Michael Chwasky

For all of you who dreamed of one day having the opportunity to get a custom fitted Scotty Cameron putter just like the pros use every week on Tour, your wish has finally come true. Yup, the brand new Scotty Cameron Gallery, located in Encinitas in Southern California, is now open to the public. At The Gallery, which is Cameron's first public putter fitting studio in the U.S., anyone who makes an appointment (and pays $350) will get a two-hour fitting session with a Cameron-trained fitter and have the same experience that Tour players have when they go to the nearby private Cameron Putter Studio.That experience, which Cameron calls "The Art of Putting," includes the use of a proprietary high-speed video analysis system (with nine camera angles) and an explanation of exactly how your stroke effects the movement of the putter and the ball. After your session you can order a custom-made Cameron putter (for an additional fee) that's perfectly fitted to your stroke. 

The system we've developed is patented and it focuses on both the putter and the ball -- the ball is affected by the putter and the putter is affected by the player, so it's critical to see the entire picture. When someone comes in it's not a lesson but rather an attempt to get the player, putter, and ball to work together. To make this happen we answer all kinds of questions pertaining to putting - hand position, ball position, forward press, shaft angle, toe flow, loft, lie angle, grip size and shape, head weight, and a number of other critical aspects of set up, stroke, and putter design are analyzed. After a player understands how all these factors affect their putting they immediately develop a lot more confidence, which is one of the most important characteristics of a good putter. -Scotty Cameron

The Gallery is also a retail space where a wide variety of items, many of which are designed by Cameron himself, that will be available for purchase. These items include everything from luxury apparel and surfboards (shaped by Rob Machado), to wine and putting accessories. Also, Tour-used putters that sporadically come back from the Tour will be made available for purchase on a weekly basis. You can view more photos of The Gallery below.

To make an appointment for a putter fitting session go to www.scottycamerongallery.com or call the Scotty Cameron Gallery Concierge at (760) 230-6000. 

Gallery address: 927 S. Coast Highway 101, Suite E-100, Encinitas, CA, 92024

New Titleist 915 Driver Spotted at Congressional

Posted at 11:28 AM by Michael Chwasky

Titleist-915-driver_640
Some Titleist staff players have been testing the new 915 D2 and D3 drivers on the range at Congressional CC this week in preparation for the inevitable replacement of the current 913 series. Though the folks at Titleist are keeping tight-lipped about the new product line it's evident from the photos that a major design change has taken place.

Check out the slot in the sole right behind the clubface -- if this looks familiar it's because a similar design has been used by TaylorMade and Adams in recent years to produce better ballspeed and lower spin on shots struck low on the clubface, right where most recreational players tend to miss. Assume that this design feature will make the 915 series more forgiving and playable than the 913 series drivers, which were excellent in their own right. 

Another feature of the 915 series appears to be similar adjustable hosel technology to the 913 series, which allows for independent loft and lie tuning. Expect a 460cc D2 model as well as a slightly smaller, more pear-shaped D3 model. If you're interested in Titleist's new drivers you can look for them to be available sometime in the late summer or fall.

Titleist Vokey TVD wedges

Posted at 9:53 AM by Michael Chwasky

Vokey-tvd-wedges_640
Vokey TVD wedges ($160 plus personalization packages), meaning "Tour Van Design," are the result of Bob Vokey's direct work with Tour players and their specialized needs. The new TVD-M and TVD-K wedges reflect the most popular grinds among PGA Tour players. Both are offered in two finishes (chrome and black ion) and are fully customizable for length, lie, loft, weight porting, toe engraving, personal stamping, grips, shafts, and ferrules. 

All Vokey wedges are built with deeper, Spin Milled TX3 grooves that create higher spin rates and more accuracy around the greens than past Vokey models. TX3 grooves are 7% larger than past Vokey grooves and promote greater control and accuracy. TVD wedges are available in 54 to 60-degree models. 

“The K grind has been a huge hit for us,” Vokey said. “It’s only been on Tour for a couple of years but we already have 30 guys using it. I think the secret is the cambered sole. It is wide and forgiving, but the camber keeps the club moving through the turf. So it’s playable in a variety of conditions.”

All TVD wedges can be customized with a four different styles of stamping -- straight, freestyle, snow, and snow dot options -- in up to eight letters and numbers and a dozen paint fill colors. 

“There isn’t a wedge I make on Tour that doesn’t have some type of personalized stamping,” said Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill, who works on the Titleist Tour Van. “Jason Dufner, for example, likes me to stamp ‘DUF’ on all his wedges. Zach Johnson has the names of children. Kevin Na has ‘NA’ in snow stamping all over the wedge. It’s totally personal.”

Vokey TVD wedges are available May 7th through WedgeWorks on Vokey.com.

Titleist Makes Cactus-Stamped Wedge for Victor Dubuisson

Posted at 3:46 PM by Mike Walker

Wedge_1Victor Dubuisson's new cactus wedge from Titleist.

We all know that a "sandy" is getting up and down from the sand, but what do you call getting up and down when your ball is under a cactus plant? We're not sure but it's definitely a French word.

France's next great golfer Victor Dubuisson lost the Accenture Match Play Championship final to Jason Day after 23 holes at Arizona's Dove Mountain but he gained a legion of fans with his amazing short game in the extra holes with two incredible up-and-downs from the desert brush. As a reward, Titleist gave Dubuisson a special cactus-stamped wedge to Doral this week.

Dubuisson was modest this week when discussing those shots at Dove Mountain, calling them "50-50."

"I was a kid, I used to practice a lot my short game," Dubuisson said. "But those two chips I managed to do two weeks ago, you know, it could have just stayed in the rocks or in the bush. It was great but it was like 50-50, it was not really my control."

Four New Titleist Golf Balls to Boost Distance and Feel

Posted at 4:21 PM by Michael Chwasky

Titleist-balls_640
Titleist NXT Tour

Price: $34/dozen

IT'S FOR: Aspirational, competitive golfers who seek Tour-like short-game control and added length.
THE SKINNY: The three-piece ball features a softer dual core and softer cover than the previous model, for better feel and short-game control with no distance loss. A spherically tiled dimple pattern contributes to its stable flight, even in windy conditions. The NXT Tour has similar spin numbers (and performance) to the Pro V1x off the driver and long irons.

Titleist NXT Tour S
Price: $34/dozen

IT'S FOR: Aspirational, competitive golfers who seek Tour-like short-game control and a softer feel.
THE SKINNY: It has a softer core and a softer Fusablend (thermoplastic) cover than its predecessor, for enhanced feel from tee to green. (The 2-piece NXT Tour S is softer than the NXT Tour.) It features the same spherically tiled dimple design as the NXT Tour and has similar spin and performance to the Pro V1 with a driver and long irons. In white or optic yellow.

Titleist Velocity
Price: $27/dozen

IT'S FOR: Slow-swing-speed golfers who want explosive distance on full-swing shots.
THE SKINNY: A softer, low-compression core and softer cover equate to a longer, softer Velocity. The spherically tiled dimple pattern creates more uniform surface coverage for a more consistent, penetrating flight and a shallower descent angle, so shots roll out farther. Comes in single- or double-digit (00, 11, 22, 33) numbers.

Titleist DT SoLo
Price: $20/dozen

IT'S FOR: Price-conscious golfers who benefit from a high-launching ball. THE SKINNY: The core and cover are unchanged, but updated aerodynamics lead to a longer ball that feels as soft as the previous DT SoLo. Titleist's lowest-compression offering has a spherically tiled dimple design, so shots reach peak height farther down range—distance gains occur more through the air than on the ground. Comes in white or optic yellow.

First Look: Scotty Cameron Futura X Dual Balance putter

Posted at 3:15 PM by Coleman McDowell

Scotty

 

The putter Adam Scott used to win the 2013 Masters has gained a little weight.

The Scotty Cameron Futura X Dual Balance mallet provides more stability through the stroke than the Futura X due to its counterbalance design.

"We’ve found, through our last 20 years of high speed video research with tour players, that the best putters in the world point the butt of their putter at their midsection throughout the putting stroke,” Scotty Cameron said. “From address, to the backstroke, at impact and through the forward stroke — the butt of the putter remains pointed to about the same 1- or 2-inch circle in their belly area."

It follows that a 50-gram weight is inserted in the butt of the putter shaft to assist in keeping it pointed at a player’s midsection throughout the stroke. Additionally, the clubhead is 50 grams heavier than the Futura X at 400 grams. The milled aluminum head features four stainless steel weights: two 20-gram weights on the rear balance bar and two 10-gram sole weights close to the face. The extra mass keeps players’ hands steady at takeaway, discourages quick hands during the stroke and boosts head stability through impact.

The standard length of the Dual Balance checks in at 38”, three inches longer than a standard putter. Adding three inches to the length allows for more counterbalance effect which leads to a higher MOI. A slightly thicker 15-inch grip comes standard with an outline of suggested hand-placement at 35 inches. Of course, the longer grip allows for multiple hand placement options. The Futura X Dual Balance is available now so you can pick one up in time for the weekend. Price: $399.
