Titleist 913 Fairway Woods & Hybrids

In Golf News And Rumors by The Golf Drill GuruLeave a Comment

Hey everyone, hope your enjoying the holiday season.  Today, we’re sharing with you the ins and outs of the new Titleist 913 fairway woods and hybrids.  These new sticks are some of the most adjustable fairway woods and hybrids on the market employing Titleist SureFit technology.  The SureFit Tour hosel allows golfers to set loft and lie independently to optimize ball flight – higher or lower, and for more draw or fade. When you couple this with the interchangeable sole weight, you truly have one of the most customizable hybrids and fairway woods in the market today.  The 913f and h were modelled after the new 913 driver, and come in two versions: 913F and 913F.d Low Spin fairway metals and 913H and 913H.d hybrids.

913F vs. 913F.d LOW SPIN FAIRWAY METALS: While both the 913F and 913F.d Low Spin feature lower, more optimal CG locations for more distance potential, the new 913 fairway metals provide two distinct performance choices evident by the different locations of their SureFit Tour weights.

The 913F is a high performance, classic pear shaped fairway that delivers distance with stability through low and deep weighting for all-around performance from the turf and tee.

The 913F.d Low Spin is a high performance, larger full pear shaped fairway that delivers distance with lower spin (about 200 rpm less than 913F) from low and forward weighting for a more penetrating flight.

“Our player testing shows overall preference is split with the 913F and 913F.d Low Spin models, with many players incorporating both models into their long game setup,” Stone said.

“The 913F is our traditional fairway metal with all-around performance for players that want long distance with more forgiveness. The 913F.d Low Spin meets the needs of players wanting or needing spin reduction in their fairways due to the way they deliver the head.”

 

913H vs. 913H.d HYBRIDS: Like their fairway metal counterparts, the 913H and 913H.d models deliver more distance through optimized CG locations while offering two performance options to satisfy players’ needs.

The 913H is a high performance hybrid that delivers distance and stability through low and deep weighting for all-around performance. The club has a new tour-inspired shape with a softer toe and a sleeker heel that promotes proper ground contact, with increased offset in the high-lofted models to improve appearance, playability and forgiveness.

The 913H, with the SureFit Tour weight located deep on the sole, has also been designed with progressive CG locations through the range of lofts for optimized launch and spin control to deliver proper distance and ball flight.

“We look at hybrids as individual golf clubs. They’re being used to fill specific voids in a player’s set, they’re replacing irons or they’re filling a gap. That means they require that each one be designed with their own CG position such that you get the correct launch, spin and shot control for each club. As we move up in loft with the 913H models, the CG moves more forward to help maintain spin for proper shot control,” Stone said.

“We’ve also added offset to the high-lofted models for improved appearance, playability and forgiveness. That’s a preferred look as you’re moving from an iron into a hybrid. You don’t want your hybrid to look like a fairway wood as you’re making that transition.”

The 913H.d is a high performance hybrid that delivers distance with lower spin from low and forward weighting for a more penetrating flight.

The 913H.d has a more compact head than 913H with slightly more offset. The forward-positioned SureFit Tour weight and compact head combine to produce a forward-positioned CG location that provides spin and trajectory control for higher speed players or players that want or need to control spin based on how they deliver the head at impact.

“The 913H.d is a product our tour players wanted,” Pelisek said. “The forward CG really helps higher speed players control the flight and trajectory. And many players like the compact, more iron-like shape.  We decided to make the 913H.d available by custom-order-only in the market to allow our loyal Titleist golfers that need spin control access to a product that will be very popular on the PGA Tour.”
