Titleist Drivers are renowned for their performance-optimising technology and sleek, innovative design. The internationally recognised brand has a proven track-record delivering sheer excellence and enjoyment to the professional golfer.
Founded in 1932, the Titleist brand was developed as a result of amateur golfer, Phil Young missing a putt. Having been satisfied with his stroke; Young instead looked to his equipment, questioning its quality and product performance. He believed he could create better, so set about designing his own new brand of equipment.
Striving for excellence and quality
Following his discovery, Young set about creating the highest quality golf balls the world had ever seen. With the help of rubber specialist, Fred Bommer, the design was finalised. Acushnet Golf Division were then approached, and production began. Even today, X-rays are used before the product is allowed to be marketed to the consumer.
