FAIRHAVEN, Mass. – Titleist adds a new option in long game performance with the introduction of 712U, a forged utility iron that provides high speed, traditional blade iron players with improved playability and shot control.
Engineered with a deep center of gravity (CG) position for a higher moment of inertia (MOI), Titleist 712U delivers increased stability and playability versus a traditional long iron while providing enhanced trajectory and spin control versus a hybrid.
A result of extensive research and tour player testing conducted by the Titleist Golf Club R&D team, 712U features a wider, camber sole design that promotes clean turf interaction and is effective for a variety of attack angles, making the club more versatile when trying to hit high or low shots. 712U also uses a tapered-tip iron shaft for additional trajectory control.
712U utilizes a forged, hollow body 1025 steel construction with a high-speed 455 steel face insert to provide the performance, looks and feel that have made Titleist irons the No. 1 choice of players across the worldwide professional tours.
Offered in 2-iron (18º), 3-iron (21º) and 4-iron (24º) lofts, 712U utility irons are available by custom order beginning May 15.
First introduced on the PGA Tour late last year, 712U is already the most played utility iron model on the PGA Tour through the first 14 events of the 2013 season. 712U models can currently be found in the bags of tour pros like Adam Scott (2-iron), Tim Clark (4-iron) and Geoff Ogilvy (2-iron) – players who prefer a utility iron over a hybrid as an alternative to traditional long irons.
“I don’t like the look of hybrids, but the 712U (2-iron) looks great at address,” said Ogilvy. “It is a bit stronger than a 2-iron, it goes farther than a 2-iron and it’s easy to hit. It feels great, performs how I need it to, and I like having it in my bag.”
“During the development of 712U, we worked closely with our tour players to design a utility iron that delivers a great combination of consistency and control,” said Steve Pelisek, General Manager, Titleist Golf Clubs. “The deeper CG results in a higher MOI that increases stability at impact, helping players achieve more consistent distance and trajectory control, whether hitting shots high or low.
“With the 712U being so well received out on tour, we decided to make the club available through custom order for those players that need or prefer this type of long game yardage and trajectory solution,” Pelisek said.
The 712U has a traditional profile with a rounded back design that is preferred in the address position over cavity back long irons with more offset. Players will gain added confidence at address from a club head that is slightly larger than the 2-iron, 3-iron and 4-iron Titleist MB and CB (712 Series) models.
The club is chrome plated and features a satin finish.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY: The new Titleist 712U is available by custom order only beginning May 15 with a suggested base retail price of $235 (MAP: $209) with a steel shaft and $259 (MAP: $229) with a graphite shaft. Custom up-charges may apply.

FAIRHAVEN, Mass. – Craftsmanship, performance and validation by the game’s best players provide the foundation for Master Craftsman Scotty Cameron’s newest creations, the Select GoLo 5 and GoLo S5 putters.
Available March 1, the racy mallet-style Select GoLo 5 and GoLo S5 are the newest additions to the Scotty Cameron by Titleist Select line of putters, epitomizing Cameron’s commitment to working with the best players in the world and incorporating their feedback into his designs. Since 1997 and counting, more players on the PGA Tour have trusted Scotty Cameron Fine Milled putters than any other putter.
Scotty Cameron Select GoLo 5 and GoLo S5 putters have a compact, elegantly rounded profile with a racy soleplate and Select Weighting technology for modern balance and stability.
The head design is about 10 percent smaller than the popular Select GoLo and GoLo S models, a result of Cameron’s research and testing with players on the worldwide professional tours and in his Putter Studio in California. The slightly asymmetric back profile with a pulled in heel and the contained cavity sight lines encourage a flowing stroke along the ideal arc.
Two neck configurations – GoLo 5 with a single bend shaft and GoLo S5 with a straight, near center shaft – provide options for appearance and dynamic feel, and toe flow.
“Working with the best players in the world gives me incredible feedback,” Cameron said. “The GoLo 5 and S5 are the results of that feedback for a slightly smaller head, but with the look, feel and performance of the incredibly popular GoLo. For many players the compact setup instills the confidence and control to make a flowing stroke, and hole more putts.”
Like each model in the Select putter family, GoLo 5 and GoLo S5 have a deep milled face that contributes to a softer feel and sound. Each Select putter also features a tour-validated Black Mist finish for a rich, dark, glare-free look. Race-car inspired cherry dot graphics in the back and cherry dot weights in the sole help create a modern but timeless look.
The Select family now features five modern blade models (Newport, Newport 1.5, Newport 2, Notchback, Newport 2.6), four mallets (GoLo, GoLo S, GoLo5, GoLo S5), three mid lengths (Newport 2 Mid, GoLo Mid, GoLo S Mid), and two long options (Big Sur, Big Sur S).
Refined Design: Precisely engineered surfaces and edges with elegant lines and blends. Refined Cosmetics: Framed, double milled red-dot graphics. Framed, double beveled sole weights. Precision Milled Body: CNC milled soft 303 stainless steel.
Deep Face Mill: Provides a soft, tour-preferred feel and sound.
Black Mist Finish: Rich, dark, glare free black finish combined with red-dot graphics to create a timeless look.
Select Weighting: Heel-toe weighting perfectly matched to the shaft length or player’s feel preference.
Draft Sole: Triple angled sole for square set up with camber for a smooth takeaway.
Stepless Shaft: Provides a clean, uninterrupted address appearance.
Pistolero Grip: Black pistol grip with dancing Cameron logo for a stable feel in a golfer’s hands.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY: The Scotty Cameron GoLo 5 and GoLo 5S will ship to golf shops beginning March 1, 2013, with a suggested retail price of $375 (MAP: $349).

FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (Jan. 24, 2013) – Personalization meets performance with Master Craftsman Bob Vokey’s newest addition to the WedgeWorks Exclusives lineup, the Titleist Vokey Design TVD-K.
The Vokey TVD-K, available this March through WedgeWorks on Vokey.com, is the result of Vokey’s recent work with PGA Tour players such as Adam Scott, Jason Dufner and Ben Crane to develop a sole that is playable in a variety of conditions.
TVD (“Tour Van Design”) models are built with the same unparalleled craftsmanship and technology that have made Titleist Vokey Design wedges the #1 wedge on the PGA Tour since 2004 and the most played wedge at every level of competitive golf.
Vokey TVD-K wedges are available in three loft/bounce combinations (56.12º, 58.10º and 60.10º) and two new finishes (California Chrome and Graphite Ion), to go along with all of the personalization options available through WedgeWorks. The TVD-K 56º features a wider, more cambered sole than any of the sand wedges available in the Vokey Design SM4 lineup. The wider sole makes the TVD-K 56º a very playable club from the bunker. The 58º and 60º TVD-K models feature a full sole with higher bounce, suitable for neutral to digger swing types in a variety of conditions.
All WedgeWorks TVD models (TVD-M and TVD-K) feature the maximum-performing Vokey SM4 grooves, featuring 100-percent inspected, tight tolerance, aggressive groove edges at the limits allowed by the Rules of Golf.
“The TVD-K is the evolution of the TK grind that we had on tour and as a limited release in WedgeWorks,” Vokey said. “It has a wider sole, with more camber. It has enough bounce to be very forgiving out of the bunkers but still allows shotmaking around the greens. It’s been popular with a lot of guys I’ve worked with on Tour including Adam, Jason and Ben.”
Every wedge in the Exclusives line is fully customizable and built by Vokey and his team in Carlsbad, Calif. WedgeWorks gives golfers the opportunity to craft wedges that fit both their game and personality – from length, lie and loft, to toe engraving, personalized stamping, paintfill, grips, shafts, ferrules and shaftbands.
“WedgeWorks has been a dream come true for me,” said Vokey. “For the first time we have Tour, R&D and Custom in one place. We take our influence from the Tour and try to constantly improve by offering more custom features and options to the wedge enthusiast.”
LOFT/BOUNCE COMBINATIONS: Vokey TVD-K wedges are available in three loft/bounce combinations: 56.12º, 58.10º and 60.10º. Available in both RH and LH.
NEW FINISHES: TVD-K models feature two exclusive finishes, the plated California Chrome or the unplated Graphite Ion (pictured).
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY: Vokey WedgeWorks Exclusives TVD-K wedges will be available in March through WedgeWorks on Vokey.com or by custom order, with a suggested retail price of $160 plus personalization packages. Please see Vokey.com/wedgeworks for complete options and pricing information.

FAIRHAVEN, Mass (Jan. 24, 2013) – Titleist, Golf’s Symbol of Excellence, proudly announces the selection of Jim Michael, Sean Morgan and Mike Summerville as 2012 Sales Representatives of the Year. The official presentation to recognize Michael, Morgan and Summerville for their distinguished honors took place during the annual Titleist National Brand Meeting in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
Each of the three honorees has spent the last 16 or more years at Titleist building positions as highly respected ambassadors of the Titleist brand and their fellow associates. Summerville began his career at Titleist in 1992, Michael in 1995 and Morgan in 1997.
Both Summerville and Morgan are first-time recipients of the award, the Titleist sales organization’s highest honor. Michael also earned the distinction in 1997.
“Jim Michael, Sean Morgan and Mike Summerville have dedicated their careers to the continued success of the Titleist brand and our valued customers,” said David Maher, Vice President, Titleist U.S. Sales. “They have continually adapted and excelled in an ever-changing business environment, earning the respect and trust of their customers by providing the highest levels of service and support. Their exceptional levels of performance in 2012, to go along with their consistency through the years, reflect the passion and strength of our Titleist sales force and our commitment as a company to improve each and every day.” Michael, the Titleist Sales Representative in North Chicago, has been a constant fixture for the Titleist Sales team in the Chicago area for the past 18 years. His commitment to building strong business partnerships and consistently providing best-in-class service levels has earned him this prestigious honor for the second time. Michael grew up in Chicago and learned the golf business working with his father, Jim. Sr., the longtime PGA Professional at Biltmoore Country Club in Barrington, Ill. Michael and his wife, Nancy, have two children, Danny and Amanda.
Morgan’s career at Titleist began in 1997 as a member of the Titleist Customer Service team in the company’s worldwide headquarters in Fairhaven, Mass. A couple years later, Morgan transitioned into a clubfitting role on what is now the Titleist FittingWorks Van. Morgan joined the Titleist Sales team in 2004 and won the Titleist New Breed Sales Representative of the Year award in 2007. He moved to Chicago in the summer of 2010 and is responsible for the South Chicago and Northwest Indiana regions. His strong business acumen and commitment to helping his customers achieve their business goals have been the cornerstones of Sean’s success. A native of Cape Cod, Mass., Morgan graduated from Syracuse University. He and his wife Lori, have three daughters, Taryn, Elissa and Aislee.
Summerville is entering his 22nd year with Titleist. He currently serves the Dallas area, displaying a commitment to exceed expectations and lead by example. One of the organization’s most consistent performers over the past two decades, Summerville’s recognition affirms his unwavering commitment to servicing his customers and being a valuable business partner. He started his Titleist career as a member of the Massachusetts-based Customer Service team in 1992 before transferring to the company’s Carlsbad, Calif., location, where he managed the Custom Golf Club department. It was then on to Houston in 1995, when Summerville first joined the Titleist Sales force. He relocated to the Columbus, Ohio, area in late 2003, before moving to Dallas three years later. A graduate of Indiana University, Summerville and his wife, Diane, have two children, Kyle and Grace.
