Two Weeks, Two Wins for the new Titleist Irons

Titleist ambassador Adam Scott fired a sizzling final round 11-under 61 to earn a three-shot win at the Commercialbank Qatar Masters. It was his second victory in two tries at the event, as well as his 13th career win as a professional. Adam advanced to World Number Four with the record-setting performance in which he shaved two strokes off the course record, while achieving his personal best round as a professional. His 20-under par 268 total matched the tournament record previously set in 1999. He started the final round three shots off the lead, and posted five birdies in the first five holes. He had 11 birdies and no bogeys on the day. Adam becomes the first player to win with the new Titleist AP2 irons, a week after Titleist ambassador a victory at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship playing the new Titleist Z•M Forged irons.

    <a href="www.titleist.com/.../695cb.asp" rel="nofollow">695CB</a> irons are still available for custom order for those consumers desiring a Z cavity set.

    Adam's <a href="www.titleist.com/.../ap2.asp" rel="nofollow">Titleist AP2</a> irons are all 1° weaker than standard, which leaves him with a 44° 9-iron. His 50° Vokey Design pitching wedge is bent 1° strong to 49°.

    Have you considered releasing an all cavity-back Z Forged set?

    Significant technological advancements have led to improvements in golf club design in the 12 years since we introduced the DCI 962 irons. Our recommendation is to visit an <a href="www.fittingworks.com/FindaFitter.aspx" rel="nofollow">Authorized Titleist FittingWorks Partner</a> for a complete iron fitting that will help you compare your 962s to the new Titleist irons.

    Adam used a prototype Scotty Cameron Newport 2 Mid Slant in his win in Qatar.  As Christopher notes above, Adam is in town this week at our test facility working with Butch Harmon, so we'll try to catch up with him and get some images.

    It seems to me that the majority of golfers upgrade their clubs whenever the new models come out. I have been hitting my DCI 962s since I bought them new and haven't even considered buying a new set until I saw the new AP2 Forged Irons recently. I would just like to know, in your opinion, if you think the technology advancements of the new AP2 irons compared to my DCIs would make that much of a difference to my game (my handicap is a 9)? I just don't think they would improve my game enough to justify upgrading. What do you think?

    What putter did Adam use to win this week and have you got any bag images of his new line-up?

  8. Robert Sellman

    I understand Adam Scott and Butch Harmon are with you this week at the Titleist Performance Institute.  It would be great to see some photos and maybe a write up on his visit with Titleist.

    Adam Scott appears to have pulled out the 47° PW from his AP2 set and gone with a 50° Vokey Wedge, which if nothing changed would leave a loft difference of 7° between the 9 iron and 50° wedge.  I'm assuming all lofts have been tweaked to allow more consistent yardage gaps between irons. I'd love to know what the lofts are from his 2 iron through to the 50° (if it's still 50).

    The loft specs on the new AP2, Z•B Forged, and Z•M Forged irons are based off of what we call our Tour standard that starts with a 47° pitching wedge. The lofts on the AP1 irons are slightly stronger (45° PW). Extremely positive feedback for the Project X 5.5 in consumer testing with the AP2 irons was a factor in the decision to make it the stock shaft. Dynamic Gold will be readily available as a standard option for custom orders if desired. The new Titleist irons will be available in golf shops worldwide in late March.
