Titleist launch 816 hybrid range

2015 09 Titleist 816 Hybrid
• Titleist launch 816 hybrids alongside brand new irons
• They've been created using the best hybrid technology
• "816 hybrids are definitely scoring clubs," said Ian Poulter


Launching alongside their brand new irons, Titleist have introduced the 816H1 and 816H2 hybrids, which have been designed to long game performance.

Created using the best hybrid technology in the game, both models are equipped with the active recoil channel and ultra thin face technology to generate high speed and low spin for long distance, while a high moment of inertia (MOI) design increases speed across the face for more forgiveness on off-centre hits.

Trusted by tour pros around the world, the 816 hybrids are already going down exceptionally well with the likes of Jordan Spieth and Ian Poulter.

“I love my hybrids,” said Poulter. “A lot of guys only use one hybrid, but I transitioned away from a 4-iron into a 4-hybrid a while ago. Based on my early testing, I can tell that 816 hybrids are definitely scoring clubs. I get the extra benefit of the higher ball flight, whether it’s from the rough or even if it’s from the fairway.”

Two-time major winner Spieth, meanwhile, loves the 816’s look and feel.

“The new 816, with the silver head and black face, is a really cool looking hybrid,” said Spieth. “It’s really clean, really crisp. When I strike it, it shoots off the face nicely. It goes a little higher than my 915 hybrid, and a little bit further. If you’re going to hit it a little higher and further, ultimately that’s enough to make a golfer really pleased.”

Additionally, the 816H hybrids provide the most precise fit Titleist has ever offered with two models, loft choices every two degrees and a new one degree SureFit Tour hosel for independent adjustment of loft and lie.
"More golfers than ever are replacing long irons with hybrids" - Chris McGinley

The 816H1 models are high launching hybrids that fly further and land soft with a larger profile that provides confidence, while the 816H2 hybrids have a more compact shape with a slight offset for iron-like shot control for players who engage the turf more aggressively.

“Golfers have long thought of hybrids as ‘rescue clubs’ and not ‘scoring clubs,’ but we intend to change that perception,” said Chris McGinley, vice-president of Titleist golf club marketing. “More golfers than ever are replacing long irons with hybrids and carrying multiple hybrids in their bags because of their performance benefits. Instead of thinking about getting out of trouble or just getting the ball close to the green, golfers can now think about hitting the green and stopping the ball closer to the pin more often.”
