Dawn of the Planet of the Ape

Love him or loathe him, Bryson DeChambeau has become the biggest story in golf but was it science or a bruised ego that sparked his rapid weight gain?

Following a highly successful US launch in 2016, Titleist is making its premium C16 Irons available to golfers in Ireland for the first time during the month of May.

Created through the Titleist Concept Clubs initiative, which allows the brand to showcase highly innovative technologies, ultra-premium materials, advanced construction methods and cosmetic treatments, golfers will be able to trial and get fit for C16 irons at select Titleist Thursdays venues over the next month.

By their nature, Titleist’s Concept Clubs are super premium and released in extremely limited quantities but may provide golfers with a glimpse of technologies which could feature in the next generation of in-line Titleist products.

“C16 Irons were designed with an absolute focus on performance and without the constraints of such things as cost of materials or manufacturing limitations,” said Josh Talge, Vice President, Titleist Golf Club Marketing.

“When we started fitting golfers into these irons last summer, it became instantly clear how big of a step we had taken. C16 truly delivers next-level performance in a player’s head size and shape, and we want to give more golfers the opportunity to experience it.

“The Titleist Golf Club R&D team is doing extraordinary work in terms of designing the best performing, most innovative equipment in the game,” added Talge. “What our Concept Products initiative does is allow R&D to take that performance and innovation to a new level – to pursue highly theoretical ideas and make them a reality.”

C16 IRONS TECHNOLOGY:

• A Forged, High-Strength Steel (K301) Cup Face in the long irons (4-7) produces a stronger, thinner face, delivering maximum carry distance and increased ball speed. A 1RK95 High-Strength Steel Face Insert in the short irons (8-W) creates an ultra-thin face for more distance.

• Extreme High-Density Tungsten Weighting moves mass to the perimeter and deep into the Hollow-Body Construction, providing maximum forgiveness and a high-launching trajectory.

• A Thin, Cast 17-4 Welded Body creates discretionary mass that is repositioned into the heel and toe, pushing the CG low and deep for a higher launch with more forgiveness.

• Premium Shafts (Mitsubishi KURO KAGE Limited Edition AMC, Nippon N.S. PRO 880 AMC) with Ascending Mass Concept (AMC) technology enhance performance throughout the set. All other custom shafts are available at no upcharge (except for AeroTech SteelFiber)

Chris Beaumont, Titleist Golf Club Marketing Manager, said: “C16 is the most advanced iron Titleist has ever created and we are delighted to be able to offer UK and Ireland golfers the chance to try it out at several Titleist Thursdays events in May.”

“These irons exemplify our industry-leading innovation and expertise and by offering trial and fittings at several locations across the UK, we hope to allow as many golfers as possible to experience this while stocks last.”

Available: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, P, W

Price: SRP €3,750 (Set of 7, steel) and €4,050 (Set of 7, graphite)
