which we introduced in the fall of 2011, would still be a leader in the category in terms of combination of low CG and high MOI. And our construction has improved two times since then. Our tour players like ball speed on off center hits just like everyone else does. Consistent distance comes from consistent speed. The forgiveness of 716 AP2 is now on par with 714 AP1 and brings distance control in a players’ club to an entirely new level.”
A lot of players on all levels are opting to use mixed sets these days and choosing specialty irons for the longer clubs to maximize performance—especially for those tougher longer shots.
Titleist is also offering a great option for players looking for a driving iron or something easier to hit than the traditional three or four iron that is part of an entire set. The T-MB Utility irons use an extreme amount of high density tungsten—as much as 80 grams’ in each head-- to produce a high-launch, long carry club that is really easy to hit but many times gives a more desirable, lower launch than a hybrid or fairway wood.
With a low and deep CG and a high-MOI design, the T-MB looks like a muscle-back iron but feels and plays more like a hybrid, so if you are looking for a forgiving club for longer shots, this fits the bill. The thin facedface of 431 stainless steel allows for more flex at impact, making this feel and perform like a very powerful club.
“T-MB’s are the most playable, most forgiving utility irons in the game. They will change the way players look at this type of club from a driving iron to a true utility club that can be integrated into the long end of a players’ set to improve distance gapping and shot stopping,” said Chris McGinley, Vice President, Titleist Golf Club Marketing. “TMB is loaded with technology. That’s what `T’ in T-MB represents. Our R&D team has given players more launch, carry distance and forgiveness where they need it most at the long end of the set, all with an incredible, lively feel.”
Titleist features an assortment of True Temper stock shafts with these three models of clubs, including the newer Dynamic Gold AMT that has been popular on tour and the lighter lineup like the XP 90 and 95.

Getting a grip on the golf club is pretty much a known fundamental, but accomplishing that without holding it too tight and creating tension is not always the easiest thing to do—especially in hot, humid weather.
A solution to this problem for golfers has been solved by NFL player Matt Furstenburg, a tight end who has played with the Baltimore Ravens and found that the gloves he wears to catch football lost their tackiness during a single game and wanted to find a solution. After two years of research, the former University of Maryland Terrapin developed a spray called Boost Grip Football Gel that has become an Amazon best seller.
Recently, after marketing the product to football, baseball and softball players, Furstenburg has introduced the Grip Boost Golf Spray for golfers who are looking for more gripping power without having to strangle the club. This easy to use spray comes in a handy two once aerosol can that can be applied before or during the round simply by spraying on your golf glove. A quick spray to club grips in addition to the glove can increase the tackiness and give you more griping power with worn grips.
Grip Boost Golf Spray is mess-free, easyto-use and restores grip to golf gloves and clubs easily. The best part about it is that the grip technology works through sweat, rain and humid conditions.
The product uses an eco-friendly ingredient derived from crab shell materials, and Furstenburg worked with these with the help of the the University of Maryland’s Department of Chemical and Bimolecular Engineering in the development of the Grip Boost Spray.
