913 Prototype Fairways and Hybrids Introduced at The Barclays
Posted: August 20, 2012
As the sun rises Monday morning on Long Island, N.Y., it will bring with it a series of firsts - the first event of the 2012 PGA Tour Playoffs at The Barclays, the first time The Barclays will be contested over the challenging Black Course at Bethpage State Park, and for Titleist Brand Ambassadors who have played their way into the playoffs it will be a first look at the new prototype Titleist 913 fairways and hybrids on the PGA Tour.
And we're excited to be bringing you a quick look of what the players will be testing at The Barclays.
Team Titleist is en route to Bethpage Black and we'll be checking in throughout the week with inside-the-ropes updates as players work with the Titleist Golf Club R&D team and Tour Reps to get their SureFit Tour settings dialed-in.
As with the 913 prototype driver launch at the AT&T National in June, this marks the official introduction of the new fairways and hybrids on the PGA Tour and kicks off the tour seeding and performance validation process that all Titleist clubs go through prior to being released in the market.
Quick Fact: 913 is the series designation for the new family of metals. Titleist continues to release metals under the 900 number designation with the “9” standing for metals and the “13” indicating the new model year, 2013.
As the tour seeding and performance validation process continues in the coming weeks across the worldwide professional tours, we'll continue to share more news and product details here on Team Titleist.
