Let’s find out in the review.
Webb Simpson WITB
Driver: Titleist TS3 (10.5°, Mitsubishi Tensei Blue AV 65 TX Shaft)
Titleist has designed the driver that excels in accuracy and driving distance. It uses three various technologies to achieve the result.
The TS3 club uses variable face thickness technology (VFT), and that gives it high moments of inertia. The VFT ensures the entire face supports high ball speed. That holds even when you miss the sweet spot slightly.
Also, it employs the famous SureFit technology and a movable weight to influence the position of the center of gravity, CG. That increases ball speed and makes up for the easy shaping of the shot.
Furthermore, its ultra-thin titanium crown contributes to tangible weight savings. That further leads to optimum launch conditions. Besides, it boasts an aerodynamic shape that helps minimize drag, thus boosting speed. Combined with the deep and low center of gravity, the TS3 is a driver that produces high ball speed and minimal spin.
Titleist TS2 (15°, Mitsubishi Tensei Blue CK 70TX)
The TS2 fairway wood uses a super-thin titanium crown that helps it save weight greatly on some parts, redistribute the weight again to produce high MOI. Furthermore, that also helps shift the center of gravity to be deep and low in the club.
In addition, the wood uses the active recoil channel 3, ARC on the thin face, and spreads out vertically in the head. As a result, it helps boost the speed of the ball and better launching.
And to improve the turf interaction, the Titleist fills up the ARC slot with polymer. It further uses a single weight at the rear of the sole to move the CG low and back. Overall it’s the wood that’s easy to hit and relatively forgiving.
Titleist 913 (18°, UST Mamiya Proforce VTS 8TX Shaft)
One of its key features is the adjustable hosel that employs the SureFit Tour adjustment technology. The technology thus allows a golfer to fine-tune either loft or lie independently.
At a glance, the head of the wood appears relatively thin and small, but regarding fairway woods, Titleist 913 is forgiving. On the other hand, it has a thin crown.
That helps in redistributing the weight on the wood and hence achieving a low center of gravity. The effect is that the wood feels more powerful and gives you more control of the ball.
Titleist 913 (20°, Graphite Design Tour AD-DI 105X Shaft)
The Hybrid club boasts a 117cc head and has a forward-placed center of gravity. Its SureFit hosel is not only small but short too. Accordingly, it allows a golfer to tweak on the loft and lie to his liking.
Although it’s a set, each club complements the other. And overall, the hybrid set of clubs benefits in terms of distance and forgiveness.
Titleist 915 (23.5°, True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 Shaft)
The Titleist 915 hybrids tap on the ARC technology. Accordingly, the lower portion of the face flexes more and boosts ball speed without compromising spin.
Besides, a thin carpenter steel face boosts the ARC technology. At the same time, its deep CG helps to maintain the trajectory consistent. You can also tweak the loft slightly.
Irons: Titleist 620 MB (5-PW, True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100 Shafts)
At the top of their distinguishing features is the structure. Generally, it features a top line, narrow sole, and minimal offset. Such a design gives it the ability to make swift glide and smooth turf interaction.
Apart from its premium look, the Titleist 620 MB irons present progressive blade lengths. Even though the irons are less forgiving, they provide more control of the ball.
Titleist Vokey SM7 (54°)
They outshine in the improved CG placement such that makes it easier to shift from iron to wedges. Each face of the wedges enjoys treatment that produces long-lasting spin. And talking of spin, the clubs produce a tight spin tolerance according to the rules of the sport. Even Ian Poulter WITB has Titleist Vokey wedge.
Titleist Vokey SM5, (60°, True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400 Shafts)
Titleist Vokey SM5 wedges employ deep grooves. TX3 design. For that reason, it features less accumulation of grass. Therefore the faces maintain spin for a longer time.
Also, its short blade length and round toe region contribute to enhanced control of distance. Thus you get to enjoy straight shots and not the ballooning effect.
Putter: Odyssey Tank Cruiser V-Line
For the putter that offers a customizable feel and stability, the Odyssey Tank Cruiser V-Line is the way to go. The putter uses the white-hot pro insert. And therefore, it maintains consistent in the sound and performance on the whole face. Its adjustable head and counterbalance weights permit tweaking of the Patter to get the desired stability.
Ball: Titleist Pro V1
It’s the ball that gives you all-around suitability. In the long game, it delivers admirable distance. And when around the green, it gives a remarkable control. Moreover, its soft feel and consistency in performance are commendable. Whereas Webb Simpson finds the Titleist ProV1 a match for his game, Alex Noren WITB contains Chrome Soft X ball.
Sometimes you might have hesitancy before trying out a new club. That’s especially true on clubs that cost a significant amount of money.
But the clubs presented in the review are tour tested and proven. So, you can count on their quality and ability.
