TITLEIST INTRODUCES NEW U•505 UTILITY AND T200 LONG IRONSDesigned for Golfers Seeking to Increase Launch and Speed from Long IronsNew from Titleist Titleist introduces seven new opportunities for golfers who are looking to increase launch and spin from their utility and long irons, including four options in the new U•505 model and three irons from the new T200 family. Titleist has been the overwhelming most played utility iron on the PGA Tour for several years running and the addition of the new U•505 and T200 long irons will contribute to its most played position. The new U•505 utility iron and T200 long irons will be available for fittings starting today and available in golf shops globally beginning August 26. “The new U•505 is the direct result of tour player feedback of the original U•500 and U•510 utility irons,” said Josh Talge, Vice President, Titleist Golf Club Marketing. “The U•505 combines the best of both and the result is our highest performing and most playable utility iron yet. The new T200 long irons offer similar high launch and speed with the look and feel of an iron set at the top of the bag.” “With the U•505 and the T200 Long Irons, we have players covered regarding what they are seeking in launch, speed, feel and looks at the top of the bag,” said Marni Ines , Director, Titleist Irons Development, Golf Club R&D. “The immediate positive feedback we have received by players who have put these in play has been encouraging. They love the balance of the height advantage and control they are getting from a utility and long iron. That’s what these clubs give you. In addition, players love the look when they put it down at address. Even though they may play blades or T100’s in their regular set, they want the confidence and forgiveness these clubs provide irons when they set them down.” Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Charley Hoffman, Garrick Higgo, Adam Scott and Bernd Wiesberger were among several players who added new T200 2-irons to their bag at Royal St. George’s. U•505 | THE PLAYERS UTILITY IRONImproving upon the foundation of the previous generation U•510 and U•500, the new U•505 is a wide-soled, high-launching utility club. Designed for the player who is looking to increase launch and speed from their long irons with a faster face, the U•505 features evolved Max Impact 2.0 technology and new denser D18 tungsten weights, delivering improved sound and feel with outstanding versatility. The player’s shape provides confidence at address. U•505 | PERFORMANCE AND TECHNOLOGYSpeed that Feels Amazing: With a thinner forged L-Face and the infusion of Max Impact Technology (Max Impact 2.0), the U•505 is Titleist’s highest COR utility iron ever. A new reconfigured hollow body, core support structure, and enhanced high resilience polymer core, ensures that dynamic speed generation now comes with superior feel and sound.Better Tungsten for Better Launch: Utilizing Denser D18 tungsten weights and a brazing process used in aerospace construction, Titleist engineers were able to concentrate weight more efficiently and be even more precise with CG placement. In the U•505 utility iron , that meant sliding it lower and towards the heel, where tour pros and better players felt it improved launch dynamics the most. Looks Like an Iron: Based on U•510 player input, the U•505 was designed with a shorter blade and shallow face but kept the wide sole to maintain all of the performance advantages while moving towards a look that feels more in line with an irons set.T200 LONG IRONS | THE TOUR’S DISTANCE IRONThe new T200 long irons are designed for the better player who is looking for long irons to increase launch and speed at the top of their bag. Tour players currently carrying T200 long irons include Jordan Spieth (2-iron), Justin Thomas (2-iron), Bern Wiesberger (2-iron) and Charley Hoffman (2-iron), among several others. The 2, 3 and 4 T200 long irons, with lofts of 17*, 20* and 22*, respectively, are the choice of those players who want maximum speed with their longest irons, but prefer compact player’s irons for looks versus a utility iron.T200 LONG IRONS | PERFORMANCE & TECHNOLOGYPower Packed Design: Every component of the multi-material hollow body construction contributes to the long, consistent distance of the T200 Long Irons. The improved Max Impact Technology includes a core support design and an enhanced high resilience polymer core that improves both off-center speed and mass efficiency at impact across a forged, high COR SUP-10 L-Face Insert.Multi-Material Body: An engineered muscle plate contributes to precision sound tuning and saves weight which is optimized in a streamlined 17-4 chassis. A shorter blade length, less offset (same as T100), narrower topline and thinner sole, provides a tour-inspired look and feel while delivering maximum speed and distance.Better Tungsten for Better Progression: Utilizing denser D18 tungsten weights in the T200 long irons provides greater mass efficiency and allowed Titleist engineers to position the CG more precisely for maximum benefit, that is, fast, forgiving, and high launching long irons.FEATURED SHAFT: U•505 OnlyHZRDUS Smoke Black RDX HYB (80, 90g)Hexcel HexTow IM carbon fiber in the tip for added stability and lower torque.Optimized material placement for improved feel and playabilityLow-mid launch, low-mid spinPREMIUM SHAFTS: U•505 and T200 LONG IRONS (Custom Only)Graphite Design Tour AD-DI Hybrid Shaft (85g)Mid launch, low-mid spinGraphite Design Tour AD-IZ Hybrid Shaft (95g)Low-mid launch, low spinGraphite Design has the most played hybrid shafts on PGA Tour GRIP: Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 with white paint fill and black flat cap.PRICING: $249 MAP (HZRDUS shaft) | $369 MAP (GDI shafts)ON THE WEB: For more information, please visit: www.titleist.com/ ...

SPECIAL NOTICE

Please don’t be fooled by imitators of the Professional Golf Teachers Association of America. It has come to our attention that several other organizations are attempting to hijack our reputation, our certification designations, mimic our unique programs, especially our Home Study module, and in some cases, leverage even our name as their own. The name “Professional Golf Teachers Association of the United States”, formerly operated by National Golf Schools has ceased to exist after a settlement was reached between the parties.

The Professional Golf Teachers Association of America is and always will be the foremost 100% professional golf teaching certification institute in the world.

While these other programs and teaching organizations direct their marketing materials and resources to the targeting of all applicants (to cover their extensive advertising and marketing costs), whether qualified or not, the PGTAA’s philosophy and target market are that individual/golfer who desires to be a teaching professional in the field and not just an enthusiast. Since 1997 our mandatory personal telephone interview helps the PGTAA maintain their high level of members appreciated by all in the golf industry.

We do not offer various levels of certifications designed to separate you from your money and whose “membership/certification/levels of instructor” cards are useless and of zero value in the golf industry.

When comparing the PGTAA to ANY other teaching institutions, whether the PGA, LPGA, or USGTF, our cost to become a fully certified golf teaching professional is $995.00 via the Home Study module.

Going through the certification programs of the aforementioned organizations, specifically the PGA and LPGA, could cost you in excess of $5,000.00!

Additionally, contrary to what any of these alternate “schools” tell you, ONE CANNOT BECOME A PROFESSIONAL GOLF TEACHER IN A 5-DAY SCHOOL NO MORE THAN YOU CAN BECOME A DENTIST, PLUMBER ELECTRICIAN OR ANY OTHER PROFESSION. The theoretical foundation requires studying. At the PGTAA, our written manuals exceed 700 pages and include a DVD of all the key points of teaching and playing golf.

Most importantly, the PGTAA is 100% all about teaching.

The PGTAA has over 50 Tour players including Master’s, PGA, and US Open Champions, who avail themselves of our member’s teaching expertise.

There is only one Professional Golf Teachers Association of America, and you can always find us at PGTAA.com.
