From major championships to club championships, you will undoubtedly find the black, white and red headcover of the Titleist Pro Titanium driver emerging from the bags of the world's most competitive players. Led by the new high performance 905R model, the most played 460cc driver on the PGA Tour, Titleist Pro Titanium drivers combine state-of-the-art design with Tour player feedback to deliver the look, feel and ball flight results serious golfers expect from their driver.

Titleist Pro Titanium drivers are available in three different models - the 905R, 905T and 905S, each providing different launch and spin characteristics through differences in head size, face depth, center of gravity location and internal weight distribution. With an extensive selection of lofts and shafts, Pro Titanium drivers are able to optimize the launch conditions of a wide range of serious golfers. And the results at all levels of competive golf speak for themselves.

Titleist 905 drivers are being played with overwhelming success across every major professional Tour worldwide, at the recent PGA Professional National Championship and UK Club Pro Championship, and at every major amateur contest. Just this past weekend, three champions around the globe relied on Pro Titanium drivers to take them to the top of the leaderboard:

PGA Tour - Titleist ambassador Ben Curtis, playing the Pro Titanium 905R, led the Booz Allen Classic from wire-to-wire for his second career victory. He finished the week with a 20-under 264 total, one shot shy of the tournament record.

Japan Tour - Titleist ambassador S.K. Ho, using the Pro Titanium 905R shot a final round 1-under 71 to win the Mizuno Open by three shots for his sixth career title and first of the year.

Ron Philo, Jr.

PGA Professional National Championships - Titleist Leadership Advisory Staff member Ron Philo Jr., playing the Pro Titanium 905S driver, won the PGA Professional National Championship on the third hole of a playoff. Philo closed with a 4-under 68 to force the playoff. It was the ninth consecutive year Titleist was the driver of choice at the national championship for PGA Professionals who devote their careers to helping golfers improve and enjoy the game of golf. This year, 172 players, or 55 percent of the field, chose a Titleist Pro Titanium driver when their championship was on the line. (Click here for more details)

Titleist enjoyed similar success overseas at the UK Club Pro Championship with Advisory Staff member Paul Wesselingh birdieing the first playoff hole to win. Similar to Philo, Wesselingh relied on a Pro Titanium driver (905R, 8.5°) in his victory and helped make Titleist drivers the most played drivers at the Championship. In fact, 43% of the field carried a Titleist driver, compared to 17% for the next driver brand. 

And last month at the NCAA Division I Men's Championship, more than twice as many players trusted a Titleist Pro Titanium driver than the nearest competitor, including the champion who carried a Pro Titanium 905S. The story was similar at the NCAA Division I Women's Championship where the winner relied upon a Pro Titanium 905T model.

As with all high performance Titleist golf clubs, Pro Titanium 905 drivers were performance validated by the best players in the world prior to introduction and have already been the driver of choice for a number of champions this year. Following his first of three victories this year on the Champions Tour, Titleist ambassador Jay Haas credited his new Pro Titanium 905R driver, in part, for helping him reach the top of the leaderboard: "I switched to the Titleist 905R driver last week and that seemed to help me. I felt comfortable and capitalized on it by hitting some clutch drives. I made a lot of putts, too. You have to do both to win tournaments out here."
