Two New Drivers from Titleist

8.00am 17th April 2007 - Corporate

Following the company blueprint for designing, validating and providing serious clubs for serious golfers, Titleist has introduced its most technologically advanced drivers to date with the launch of the highly-anticipated 907D1 and 907D2. The two new 907 drivers are designed with all the core performance deliverables that have made Titleist the driver choice of Tour players, PGA club professionals, top amateurs and serious golfers at every level of competitive golf but they have very individual designs to cater for different performance needs.

The highest inertia Titleist driver ever, the 907D1 features a triangular shaped head delivering increased distance with forgiveness, producing a straighter ball flight. The 907D2 has a more traditional round profile and provides enhanced MOI for increased distance with workability, allowing the better player the ability to produce a draw or fade.

Both the Titleist 907D1 and 907D2 drivers incorporate a multi-material design that utilises a cast 6-4 titanium body combined with a high speed beta titanium face insert providing a large maximum ball speed area right across the face. The face insert is tapered from top to bottom, making it stiffer down low which provides for higher launch and lower spin.

Like all high performance Titleist-branded golf clubs, the new 907D1 and 907D2 drivers were thoroughly machine and player tested. The drivers have been performance validated with the world’s most discerning and influential golfers, helping to establish an impressive following for these eagerly anticipated clubs.

The new 907D2, which has been the more popular choice to date among Tour players, was in Adam Scott’s bag last weekend for his victory in the Shell Houston Open and was also the driver choice of the winner of the PGA European Tour’s South African Airways Open in December, the first week it was put into play. In addition, the 907D2 is also being played by Ben Crane, Arron Oberholser, Brett Quigley, Ben Curtis, Jason Bohn, Brad Faxon, Eric Axley, Bill Haas, Robert Gamez, Daisuke Maruyama and rookies Andrew Buckle and Johnson Wagner among others. Titleist 460CC driver options are regularly the #1 460CC drivers at US tour events and the new 907 seems certain to enhance that position as they deliver the combination of looks, feel and ball flight that better players demand.

A complete menu of loft and shaft options is available through Titleist Custom to meet the requirements of all serious golfers and the 907 drivers will be available from 1st May and will retail at £299.
