The Titleist 917D2 comes complete with a 460cc club head that provides golfers the confidence they need to achieve high flying shots.

  • Active Recoil Channel flexes at impact to provide lower spin, increased distance and higher speed
  • Radial Speed Face is an insert with a thick center and thin perimeter so you get more distance on off-center hits
  • Weight is strategically placed in the back so you get a low and deep center of gravity

3-wood: TaylorMade M1

With a multi-material construction and an ultra-light carbon composite crown, the TaylorMade M1 delivers the ideal launch conditions all in a single club.

  • 7-layer carbon composite crown is built to be thin and strong – just what you need to move the weight to the sole for a low center of gravity
  • The crown also provides 25 grams of adjustability so you can personalize your swing
  • T-Track System consists of a front track (one 15-gram weight) and a back track (one 10-gram weight) for multiple trajectory and spin settings

5-wood: Titleist 915Fd

  • Refined blade promises a solid forged feel you’ll like when playing out on the course
  • Progressive optimized center of gravity creates precise shots

Wedges: Titleist Vokey Design SM6

Titleist Vokey SM6 Wedges

Three are three key areas of play to Titleist Vokey SM6 wedges: shot versatility, spin and distance gapping.

  • Shot versatility refers to the different tour-proven grinds you can choose from
  • Increased spin is achieved from the sharp edged TX4 grooves on the club face
  • Progressive center of gravity location attains precise distance and trajectory

Putter: Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS Prototype

Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS

Unmistakably a tour-level club, the Scotty Cameron Newport 2 is a German Stainless Steel putter used by the pros. The GSS material is costly to make but the sound and feel make it a unique choice. Apparently Jimmy sent his putter to Scotty Cameron to be refurbished. The company spruced it up and added tungsten to the heel to get the feel Jimmy desired. It must have made a difference because there were some awesome putts at the PGA Championship. You won’t find something this special on our website!

Ball: Titleist Pro V1x
