From the 2009 Buick Open – Wednesday

If today's pro-am is any indication of this week's success, count Titleist Brand Ambassador Brad Faxon among the favorites. As we mentioned in yesterday's blog note, Brad put the New AP2s in the bag at Milwaukee and posted his best finish of the year. Today, he fired a 4-under 68 on his own ball, which included long birdie putts on Nos. 9 and 18. The team, which also consisted of Detroit Red Wings forwards Kirk Maltby and Dan Cleary, finished at 14-under 58.

Be sure to check out Wednesday's image gallery, which includes more shots of players testing equipment on the practice tee.

    I JUST bought the original AP2s and they have yet to come in.  Just read about the change.  Now Im wondering if I should change my order to the new AP2s.

    Courious why the design change is so soon after releasing the original AP2s?  Was there so much feedback Titleist felt the need to change right away?

    By the way, I'm a Titleist guy.  Playing with the no stamp DCIs.  Have been since 96.  Great irons.

    Complete product details, including benefit and feature listings and specifications, will be available on early this fall.

    The dual cavity design and multi-material construction of AP2 make it a slightly more forgiving iron than CB, while CB's traditional blade design offers slightly more workability than AP2.  Comments on all of the new irons from Tour have been extremely positive thus far.

    Is the size of the club head on the new AP1s smaller (i.e., more midsize) compared to the current version?  Is the forgiveness improved with added emphasis on heel/toe weighting?

    Thanks for raising the bar on an already great line of irons.

    Why would one be inclined to play the new AP2s vs. the new CBs (and vice versa).  They both are a tour proven, players' cavity back, that offers forgiveness and shot making capability right?  So just looks . . . ?  Do you expect the pro's to stick with their trusty AP2s, or get off the bandwagon and switch to the CBs?

    Sets will be available for custom order in any combination the consumer desires, across each of the four new models (and within length, lie, and loft customization limits).

    A CB 2-iron will be available.

    I like it! The MB and CB look like the 690s! Would it be a new series combining both like the 735.CM? Or will it be possible to make the combo we want from MB and CB?

    Any plans for a 2-iron in any of the iron offerings?

    Complete product details, including specifics on the improvements made to AP2, will be available on in early fall.  Until then, we can tell you that the new Tuned Feel System in the back cavity further reduces low frequency vibration to provide a soft, solid feel.
