Distance Is In The Details
It’s not one thing, it’s everything. Our new Speed Chassis is the result of a two-year mission to deconstruct the driver and then design greater speed into every detail. Now available in two designs, each born to bring the future of Titleist speed to your game.
Two Ways To Speed
The new TS Metals offer two distinct designs that bring more speed to your game. TS2 lets you swing aggressive with maximum forgiveness across the face, while TS3 offers an adjustable sweet spot for speed-tuned performance.
Real Deal Stock Shafts
Take full advantage of the added speed of TS2 and TS3 Metals with our new shaft lineup. Choose from four distinct models, each with specific performance benefits developed by the game’s top shaft manufacturers using insights from our industry-best consumer testing.
NEW TITLEIST PRO V1 AND PRO V1x
Faster from core to cover, the new Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls have been designed to leave the clubface with more ball speed and lower long game spin for more distance while providing the best short game control to help golfers shoot lower scores

9) PGA NEWS
Have Spoken with Simon this week via whats-app from Sunny Florida and he working hard and playing lots of golf.
He is however really looking forward to coming back to the UK and the club at the end of April
Winter League has just finished last weekend and thanks to my partner Steve Lyall. Enjoyed every game with Steve against our members. Out of the 20 teams we finished 6th with W10 D1 L8
Thanks to Dave Bates and Callum Moncur who subbed in a couple of games.
Titleist had a logo deal at Xmas with Free personalisation so as a surprise i got steve a dozen Pro V1 AVX in bright yellow thinking his initials were SJL as they are on BRS.
He thanked me for the balls thinking the SJL was simon james laura, I said “no there your initials SJL” and was then informed his initials are SLL. Wrong middle initial was in BRS! Thankfully he likes the balls! Merry Christmas Steve!
Congratulations to all the winter league Winners from the three club leagues and to all the players who took part. Will miss the 6am alarm call this sunday!
As a new season is around the corner me and simon plan to play in the Qualifiers for the Titleist/FJ Club Pro’s Championship, North Region Championship, The Leeds Cup and Manchester Open.
Simon will also play in all the local NE/NW Pro Am’s
After an injury layoff Laura is back practicing and is looking forward to getting back out on the course and playing in the Ladies WPGA Events. We are all looking forward to start of the season and the Masters!
Thanks for taking the time to read through today’s Newsletter and we look forward to seeing you all soon
