When Callaway did a limited run of the Chrome Soft Truvis Stars and Stripes model in May of 2018 it went gangbusters so in anticipation of the upcoming Ryder Cup in Paris the company is at it again.
Below you’ll find a list of putting-stat leaders and their flatsticks. Trend watch: All of these guys except Phil Mickelson play a mallet design but even Lefty’s flange-blade has mallet-like characteristics.
Below is a full list of the Titleist gear he used to get the job done including the yet-to-be-released TS3 driver and 3-wood: Titleist TS3 (15°) with Mitsubishi Tensei CK Blue 80TX shaft Titleist 917 Fd (18°) with Fujikura Motore Speeder VC9.2 Tour Spec shaft
The most notable design feature of the new 0311 iron line is COR2 a proprietary polymer core material that’s 20% faster than the original filler material yielding more ball speed accuracy and consistency with the same outstanding feel PXG irons are known for. The new irons feature more of the material than in the past as well as an extremely thin maraging steel clubface improving performance across the board.
“Joseph had lots of speed but was playing stock lightweight stiff-flex shafts in his irons and stock stiff shafts in his hybrid and woods. His miss with his irons was a push to the right no doubt exacerbated by his iron shafts being too soft and not stable enough for his speed and the way he loaded the club.
Each of the Ryder Cup inspired Truvis golf balls feature all of the design characteristics and performance benefits of the standard Chrome Soft and Chrome Soft X models including a new larger Graphene-infused Dual Soft Fast core that optimizes energy transfer at impact for high launch low spin distance off the tee and enhanced control around the greens.
One big difference is the addition of a new four-model structure with Tour (T) Players (P) Extreme Forgiveness (XF) and Super Game Improvement (SGI) now offered. But the real design difference has to do with the a new material used in the clubs that produces more speed and distance among other things.
Thomas has long used Titleist equipment but he has made some changes since his last PGA Tour win. At the Honda Classic in February he used a Titleist 917 D2 driver and a Titleist 917 F2 fairway wood.
We love to check out the clubs and balls that Tour players use and we occasionally wind up adding similar models to our own bags. Of all the gear that pros put into play putters are the ones that weekend players can best wield without effort.
And for those who like to root for the Euros there’s also a Chrome Soft European Truvis model complete with a European-themed white blue and yellow design. All three models will retail for $44.99/dozen.
In addition a redesigned 338 Speed Dimple pattern helps reduce drag for improved consistency and wind performance for more accurate overall long shots. The Soft Feel is available now in both white and yellow color options.
Though a lot of folks seem to think of the GAPR clubs as driving irons they’re much more than that as there are three models LO MID and HI each of which is designed to cover the full gamut of players swing types and needs.
