1994 dci blacks, 2002 762's, 2010 710CB's
FIrst ever Titleist clubs were 975D driver,975F 16.5 and 20.5 fairways and 258-12 Tour Chrome wedge in 2007.
First set I ever played with was a cally X-16 that my father gave me. Didn't like them so I bought the 822OS as a starter set in the early 200.
Ever since the 822OS, I stuck with Titleist and now I have the AP-1 710.
2013 mid-season - upgrading to AP-2
Last year i bought one of my dads friends AP2's, and they have been great to me.
My first set of Titleist clubs I got when I was about 15, which was about 2001. A set of the DCI 981, which I still have to this day. great irons. I also had two 975D's, one with a graphite shaft and another I inherited from a guy I caddied for (steel shaft and an 8.5 degree loft, great combination, haha). I then moved to the 905R, then the 909D2 and now currently the 910D3 (Im back to the 8.5 degree). Replaced the DCI's with the original AP2's, and now play a combo set of the CB (4-7) and MB (8-PW). I will always be a Titleist player ever since I got those DCI's.
My first set is actually tomorrow! Switching over to the AP1s and they are scheduled to arrive tomorrow, 3/15.
I feel like a kid at Christmas time as I have been wanting to make the move for over a year now.
I was actually considering posting a similar topic the other night when I realized I have owned a model out of almost every metalwood line since the 975 Series. I'm sad to say that I haven't upgraded since the 909 lines; but I hope to at least get a 913 D3 in there soon. Here goes my list of firsts (qualification: I began playing competitve golf in the spring of 2000 when I was in high school).
Driver: 975D, 9.5 (2000)
Fairway Wood: 975F, 14.5 (2000)
Irons: DCI 990, 2 - PW (2001)
Wedges: Raw 200 Series, 52.08 and 60.08 - guessing on bounce here - (2000)
Putter: Scotty Cameron Studio Design 2.5 (2002)
Just for Fun: Ball: Professional 90 after playing the HP Eclipse starting out
This topic has made me realize how anxious I am getting waiting for the arrival for my new 712 MBs.
1976 - Titleist AC-108's and Titleist laminated woods with burgundy stain. They were gorgeous.
I believe it was summer of 2011, 710 AP2
my first set of Titleist irons were in the early 90's with the DCI series.. I remember they were the Blacks as they had minimal offset compared to the Gold DCI's..Those irons were money and being a cast club at that they were fairly soft.
I also had a set of the 982 or 682 B's don't remember the numeral configuration which were a tour model for the players on tour.
No offset with a very small cavity back. They were played by David Duval when he was on staff..
Im only a high schooler but ill never forget when I fell in love with Titleist. i got a chance to hit a 909 driver my freshman year and Ive been starting on getting all Titleist clubs since. Winter 2011 I purchased a 910D2 and played with it so much that it cracked, it was a great driver. Along with the driver i bought 3 new Vokeys. Next was the summer of 2012. New set of 712 MB's 5-pw and 712 AP2 4 and 5 iron. then short after a 909F and a 910H. November 2012 led to a new 913D2.Then obviously, everyone has to have a new Cameron;) Christmas 2012 led to a new Scotty Cameron California Monterey. Then today i recieved my new Vokey SM4's for a birthday present. Lastly, I just ordered a new premium 14 way stand bag with a custom double strap. Ive worked so hard to get the money for all these things but they are so worth it. So happy to be supporting a full set of the greatest clubs known to man. Im only 17 and even i have already figured that out;)
late 1995 I got a set of DCI 962's before the 962 was imprinted on the club. Since then I have added a set of 962B's. I did upgrade the shafts in both to project x. They are awesome irons and i will be buried with them. I am getting to old for blades but, your 712mb's are wanting to have an affair with me and I might just buckle. She's a sweet looking lady with that satin finish...
In the mid 90's, I had a set of DCI's (gold). Though not my favorite set of irons they were very good. Had them stolen out of the trunk of my car in MY driveway! But I have been a Titleist woods loyalist. I have been eyeing the few available pics of the new forged blades, and am quite anxious to get them in my hands for a demo.
I have had many of the models since the mid 90's with only a few exceptions. I don't tend to jump to new clubs just because something new comes along. I am playing quite well with my 910 D3 9.5* driver and 910F 4 wood. My 3 wood is a Pro Trajectory (forget the #). No likely to jump on the 913's any time soon; didn't really hit it much better during a fitting than the 910.
Got fitted last week picking up 1st real set of clubs Ap2 here I come!!!
710 CBs in Dec 2010!
