Advanced Performance at the Buick Invitational

Posted: January 25, 2008

We recently unveiled our new line of Titleist Advanced Performance irons, and several of our Tour players have already put the irons into their bags. We were able to catch up with a few of these players this week at the Buick Invitational at Torrey Pines, near our West Coast operations outside of San Diego.

The new AP irons look great!  Just wondering if any of the players put the new Z irons into play this week?

Nice irons Titleist. I have the 695MB set. What differences are there between those and the new Z•B Forged iron? Also, have any staff players switched to the new blade yet? Great blog site by the way - keep up the good work from all in South Yorkshire, England.

The <a href="www.titleist.com/.../695mb.asp" rel="nofollow">695MB</a> are forged muscle back irons with a Z-muscle design that shifts the center of gravity closer to the face center for a solid feel, more efficient energy transfer and consistent launch conditions. The Z•B Forged are high performance, blended cavity-to-muscle back forged irons with traditional feel, superior looks and shot control.

Thanks Roy.  Like the rest of us, Adam likes to test new equipment and is always trying to dial in the  optimal set. He has indicated that, despite having a thicker look than he is used to, the new Titleist AP2 irons provide him with great ball flight.

We have two sets of Z•M Forged irons in play this week at the Buick Invitational:  Titleist ambassador Chez Reavie and another player who is not under contract for irons, and who we thus can not name.

Any particular reason that Adam Scott has switched from 695MB to Z•M Forged, to 680, to AP2?  Just curious if he is testing them or do they provide different characteristics for specific course set ups? Thanks for the great info.  Love the new bags by the way.

I have a set of the 735.CM irons and have certainly enjoyed them over the last year and a half. How do they compare to the new Z•B Forged? And are the Z•B Forged short irons similar (or the same) to the Z•M Forged?

I noticed Billy Mayfair uses a 907D1 driver.  What are his loft and shaft specs?  Also, which other ambassadors are gaming the 907D1?  Thanks!

The 735.CM and Z•B Forged are both blended cavity-to-muscle back forged irons.  The Z•B Forged irons feature a Z shaped back design that moves weight from the heel to toe centering the CG for solid feel, consistent ball speed, launch and spin. The Z•B Forged and Z•M Forged short irons (8-P) share the same specs. <a href="www.titleist.com/.../newsdetail.asp rel="nofollow">Click here for more on all of the new Titleist iron models for 2008.</a>

Thanks much for the reply. Decisions, decisions come late March, I guess. From first appearance, those Z•M Forged irons look like the direction I may head in, however...

Thanks again
