Toy Box: Tour players get look at Titleist 913
As PGA Tour players arrived June 25 for the AT&T National, they were greeted by the new Titleist 913 driver line.
“We’ll be showing and testing the driver with 20 to 25 players,” said Chris McGinley, Titleist’s vice president of golf club marketing. “We’re not sure how many of them might use it in the tournament.”
The 913 driver line won’t be available to consumers until November. The price has not been announced.
What’s the difference between the 913 and its predecessor, the 910?
“It has a faster face,” said McGinley, talking about more distance on off-center hits. “The face insert has a new design and a different construction.”
In addition, the center of gravity has been moved slightly lower in the 913 line for less spin. The color is darker than that of the 910 (black and smoke gray, with what McGinley called “a racier look”).
The driver line will feature the SureFit adjustable hosel and will be available in the D2 and D3 models like the 910.
The 913 line also will include fairway woods and hybrids. These will appear on Tour in August, but won’t reach retail until February 2013.
