Hi Chris, thanks for taking the time to take our questions.

If a mid-handicap golfer was going to come for a fitting but only had the time and money to address one area of the game (for now) what do you suggest they start with?

Hey Chris,

Great to see you pop in to answer some gear questions. 

It's no secret that the ARC technology is something new for Titleist this year. Can you explain a little further how it works, and why it's beneficial for all levels of golfers?

Hey Chris, great to have this kind of content on our website.

I noticed that Titleist is very different from a lot of the other manufacturers, in they tend not to put out new gear every year,instead on a 2 year cycle,  can you explain why they do this? and do you feel that the 2 year gap makes it a better time for us as consumers to upgrade as it represents a more significant change in technology over that time?

 

Thanks 

Gropper

Hey Chris,

Thanks in advance for answering all our questions!

My question is regarding the WedgeWorks program Titleist offers. I was wondering if you could shed some light & simplify the main differences between the standard SM4/SM5 models sold in pro shops & Golf Towns across Canada to the TVD K & M Grinds that are available through online custom order. Is it simply customization & a larger range of bounce options, or is more dynamic technology implemented in the TVD models as well?

Regards,

J.R
