Titleist to release new driver in November
Titleist will be releasing its 913 driver models to consumers on Nov. 1, and golfers can choose drivers based on size or shape preference, amount of forgiveness or workability, and amount of draw bias. Featuring a high-speed, forged face insert, Titleist says its new 913D2 and 913D3 drivers are the fastest, most consistent drivers Titleist has ever designed, delivering maximum ball speeds over a large area of the face. They are also Titleist’s most playable and forgiving drivers, primarily the result of improved launch conditions from a lower, more optimal center of gravity position, a new rear SureFit Tour weight and the fitting precision provided by the SureFit Tour adjustable hosel.
The 913D2 driver features a 460cc full pear-shaped head designed for maximum forgiveness and a slight draw bias, while the 913D3 has a 445cc classic pear shape that is forgiving with tour-inspired workability. Unlike the 910 series, both D2 and D3 models now offer the same launch and spin characteristics to provide maximum fitting flexibility. Golfers can dial in their launch and spin settings precisely using the SureFit Tour hosel.
The 913D2 and 913D3 drivers deliver faster, more consistent ball speeds across the face due to a new forged, variable thickness face insert, the fastest face insert ever designed by Titleist Golf Club R&D. The 913′s 6-4 Titanium face insert has a central thick portion that mirrors the outer face profile. As you move out from the center, however, the insert is thinner and organically tapered so that it perfectly matches up with the body thickness at the face perimeter. It is also 2 grams lighter than the 910′s face insert, allowing that mass to be redistributed to the new SureFit Tour weight low on the clubhead. Titleist says 26 players used 913 drivers at the PGA Championship. The new 913D2 and 913D3 drivers have a suggested retail price of $399-$449. Visit Titleist.com.
