The Candy Shop

A comment came in last week that Tour players must be like kids in a candy shop with all of the equipment at their disposal each week. While it's true that the guys on Tour can get their hands on pretty much any piece of equipment they want (within the confines of any applicable equipment contracts), there are a couple of things to keep in mind. First, playing golf is how these guys make a living, so they tend to stick with equipment they trust and aren't looking to make significant changes from week-to-week. Second, as the best players in the world, our Titleist ambassadors perform a significant function for the company by performance-validating the prototype products we develop for potential introduction to golf shops. We're happy to let them try out any and all new products they ask for! Check out the pictures below featuring an assortment of clubs we have already made up in the Tour Van, just waiting to be tried out. -- Steve Mata

    Please see the comments <a href="/2007/03/21/back-ups-for-ben-curtis/#comment-58" rel="nofollow">here</a> for the answer to your question.

    When will Titleist release the TVD Spin Milled wedges?

  3. Robert Sellman

    Our players are always willing to try new product, but we don't force them to play with equipment that they're not comfortable with.

    Being a Titleist staffer looks like heaven.  I was just wondering how willing most players are to put new clubs into play versus sticking with older models.

    I have read other people's questions about the 907D4, and know that you guys can't say yet if the 907D4 will be made available for sale in golf shops. I am just writing to ask you to please make it available, even if it is on a special order basis like some of the irons used to be. I have a 905S and a 905R and usually use the 905S. I have hit both the 907D1 and 907D2 drivers, and I really like the looks, feel, and the fact that hardly any ball speed is lost when you miss it just a little. I for some reason just feel I have more control with a smaller head that has a more forward CG, not only for controlling how much draw or fade, but even hitting it dead straight, both high and low. I am a loyal Titleist player who is just asking that the very, very small percentage of amateur players who also prefer or need these "Tour style clubs" not be forgotten. I would definitely order one as soon as they became available, no matter how long the wait, and a lot of guys in the amateur tourneys I play in still use some of the older smaller models for the same reason, so I know there is a market out there for them.

    Initial stamping is not currently a custom option for club orders.

  7. Robert Sellman

    I would like to know if it is possible to have initials stamped on a Vokey Design wedge when I order it?

    We do have Titleist Tour Representatives servicing the European Tour. We are currently working with them to provide content for the Titleist Tour Blog.

    Is there someone doing the same very nice job as you on the European Tour?

    How many wedges do your Titleist staff players go through each year on average? In the 60s and 70s, Tour players would often use the same wedge for many years, even if the grooves were worn!! Would the brand new wedges provide more consistency for the advanced player?
