Parker McLachlin Makes it Two Weeks, Two Wins for 909

Posted: August 4, 2008

Titleist ambassador Parker McLachlin claimed his first PGA Tour victory by seven strokes at the Legends Reno-Tahoe Open, finishing the tournament at 18-under 270. The 29-year old tied the course record with a 10-under 62 in the second round and set a 54-hole record at 20-under. He also earned an invitation to the PGA Championship with the win.

Parker had the following Titleist equipment in his bag at the Legends Reno-Tahoe Open:

  • Pro V1x golf balls
  • 909 driver (10.5°, 45" Aldila VooDoo X-flex shaft, Lamkin Crossline grip)
  • 909 fairway (15.5°, 43" Aldila VooDoo X-flex shaft, Lamkin Crossline grip)
  • 585.H utility (21°, 40" UST iRod 90 X-flex shaft, Lamkin Crossline grip)
  • AP2 irons (4-P, Project X 6.5 shafts, Lamkin Crossline grips)
  • Vokey Design wedges (52°, 56°, TVD60, Dynamic Gold S-400 shafts, Lamkin Crossline grips)

Parker's win marks the second in a row for the new Titleist 909 driver, following Chez Reavie's trip to the Canadian Open winner's circle last week. His is also the first professional win with a new 909 fairway. The Titleist 909 family of products will be available in select golf shops worldwide in October, with complete product information becoming available in September on Titleist.com.

For the week at the Legends Reno-Tahoe Open, Titleist was the most played golf ball with 79 players, more than all other golf balls combined. Titleist was also the top choice in the iron (33), wedge (118) and putter (48) categories. Titleist was second in drivers (30).

Was this also the 460cc clubhead?

Is Adam Scott currently carrying the Titleist 690.CH 2-iron or is he carrying the 585.H utility in a 19°?  Also, I have seen mentioned that all his irons are 1° weak, but I have also seen that only his 3-5 irons are 1° weaker.  Just curious to know which is correct and why they are 1° weaker?

When can we expect to learn more about the 909s?

In reference to Mark's question re: Adam Scott. I believe it is correct that Adam's 3,4,5 irons are 1° weak. I was fortunate to play with Adam some months ago and he admits he occasionally struggles to put enough spin and launch on his shots.This is the reason he has his 906F4 15.5° bent to 17° and is also the reason he switched from the Pro V1x to the Pro V1 about 18 months ago. The day I played with Adam he was carrying the 690 model 2-iron with lead tape in the cavity, which he hits unbelievably well.

Titleist is head and shoulders above the competition right now. It's amazing how the new 909 is already making an impact in the golf world. I love my Titleist set, except that my 804s are not bent upright. Keep it up Titleist!
