Thanks to our inside the ropes caddie Ricky on the PGA Tour, we blogged a few months back about Titleist giving its tour staff the new 913D2 and 913D3 drivers. Rory McIlroy was one of the first to game it.
While the 913F (and the 913F.d) differs from the 910 series in that it is designed to for golfers who want more distance in a fairway wood. It may well be a response to the success TaylorMade have had with their super long RBZ fairway wood, the season’s biggest hit in this category.
The 913F.d has a slightly larger head and a center of gravity that is closer to the face; in lay mans terms that means the club will deliver a lower more penetrating trajectory and be easy to shape, both of which make it more friendly off the tee. The clubs are all stainless steel and retain Titleists adjustability feature allowing 16 combos of lofts and lies.
As with all new releases the manufacturers claimed to have save weight in places and repositioned it to make the clubs even more user friendly. While I don’t buy that marketing blurb for one second what is important to know is that the 913F is far easier to launch for the mid to high handicapper while the 913F.d is for the competent single player player looking for a lower shot.
Expect to see these after Christmas in Europe so start saving!
