Beginning on August 24 2018 the Stars and Stripes version of the Chrome Soft Truvis as well as a Chrome Soft X Truvis with the same Stars and Stripes pattern will be available at retail.
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.
A forged carbon steel clubhead further enhances feel at impact while an internal face perimeter cut-out design increases the effective hitting area on the face by about 15%. This provides more forgiveness on off center hits and better ballspeed retention overall.
Other features include a thinner looking topline an angled back area for more MOI and stability and an overall more refined look. Like the original 0311 irons the GEN2 models are built with adjustable tungsten and titanium weights that can be tuned to produce an extremely accurate fit.
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.
The reigning PGA champion uses a Cameron X5 fang-style mallet prototype. This custom model features a flow neck rather than a double-bend face-balanced design which allows the putter to more easily swing on a slight arc. He also favors a SuperStroke grip in this case the Pistol GT Tour.
The four new sole grinds include FULL sole for the most bounce MID sole for medium bounce LOW sole for low bounce and XLOW for players who want the most versatility when it comes to pulling off extra challenging greenside shots.
To decide which Titleist model if right for you I recommend reviewing the company’s fitting guidelines which suggests strongly that you start on and around the green when selecting a golf ball model.
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.
Stenson’s been a machine on the greens for the last few years. He was one of the early PGA Tour adopters of the high-MOI fang-style mallet design and he continues to use it to his advantage. His current Odyssey White Hot Pro model also features the company’s soft-feeling White Hot insert.
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.
I ended up putting him in extra-stiff shafts steel in his 5-iron through wedges and graphite in his woods. I traded his bladelike 4-iron for a Ping G400 hybrid and replaced his one-piece forged irons with TaylorMade P790s both of which produced superior performance: 10 yards of extra carry with his new graphite-shafted hybrid and nearly 14 extra total yards with his new stiffer-shafted irons.” — Andres Victoriano True Spec certified fitter
