Discovered in 1791, titanium is a metal widely used in the construction of golf clubheads, including the driver. Because titanium is extremely lightweight yet strong, it can be swung at high speeds and deliver a powerful blow at impact. Golfers switching to titanium drivers and woods often gain considerable distance on their shots.
Titanium’s properties make it versatile as well. Weight can be added or removed from a titanium clubhead to change the ball’s flight pattern. (For example, to make it easier to draw or fade the ball.) The material is also highly durable, so titanium clubs can last for many years.
Thomas Golf (www.thomasgolf.com) offers titanium drivers in a variety of shapes and sizes.
