Titleist 913 fairway wood


They say: Delivering more performance from both the turf and tee, the new Titleist 913 fairway metals are built for more distance and control with the most precise fit available to all serious golfers. Developed from extensive player testing and advanced engineering, the 913F and 913F.d Low Spin fairway metals are Titleist's highest performing, most comprehensive designs, featuring optimised launch with reduced spin for longer distance and precision fitting provided by Titleist's patented SureFit Tour adjustable hosel technology.

Leigh Davies, European Marketing Manager, Titleist Clubs said: "The Titleist 913 family of metals have been designed for all serious golfers, regardless of age or gender. Utilising our industry leading SureFit Tour hosel technology and a wide range of shaft options, many of which are geared towards players with more moderate swing speeds, it is possible to precisely fit the 913 product to a wide range of players. With a precision fit, the combination of speed, distance and forgiveness engineered into each 913 head, this will offer significant performance benefits to all serious golfers, whether they be male or female."

I say: The 3-wood has always been the one club in my bag that I've struggled to use. The smaller clubhead size and low loft make it a difficult club to hit and as such I always avoid using mine in favour of a more versatile low-lofted hybrid. But Titleist challenged me to regain my confidence in my 3-wood by inviting me to one of their national custom fit centres (I chose The Belfry in the Midlands), where I was taken through the entire fitting process for a new Titleist 913 fairway wood. The really interesting thing that stands out about Titleist clubs above other equipment manufacturers is that they don't make equipment that is specifically labelled for 'ladies'. This is because they believe that there is no such thing as a 'ladies' golf club as no two ladies swing a golf club alike. This is something, as a better player, I have always agreed with and I have never actually used a ladies golf club.

The fitting process was fantastic. I was taken through the full check-list from what loft, lie and length my clubs should be to arguably the most important thing - the shaft that they should be fitted with. At the end I was recommended a new Titleist 913 3-wood with a Mitsubishi Rayon Bassara shaft in A flex, suited to my moderate swing speed. The club was built up and sent to me and I took it straight out onto the golf course and instantly loved it. It felt perfectly weighted and easy to swing, powerful with a great ball flight. Now I have a club I can use off the tee and off the fairway with total confidence. The whole fitting process from start to finish to getting my new club was a complete revelation and one that I am so pleased I made the effort to go through as I really have regained my confidence with the one club I've always avoided using in my golf bag. I'd really advise every lady golfer to do the same.
