FAIRHAVEN, Mass. – Titleist adds a new option in long game performance with the introduction of 712U, a forged utility iron that provides high speed, traditional blade iron players with improved playability and shot control.
Engineered with a deep center of gravity (CG) position for a higher moment of inertia (MOI), Titleist 712U delivers increased stability and playability versus a traditional long iron while providing enhanced trajectory and spin control versus a hybrid.
A result of extensive research and tour player testing conducted by the Titleist Golf Club R&D team, 712U features a wider, camber sole design that promotes clean turf interaction and is effective for a variety of attack angles, making the club more versatile when trying to hit high or low shots. 712U also uses a tapered-tip iron shaft for additional trajectory control.
712U utilizes a forged, hollow body 1025 steel construction with a high-speed 455 steel face insert to provide the performance, looks and feel that have made Titleist irons the No. 1 choice of players across the worldwide professional tours.
Offered in 2-iron (18º), 3-iron (21º) and 4-iron (24º) lofts, 712U utility irons are available by custom order beginning May 15.
First introduced on the PGA Tour late last year, 712U is already the most played utility iron model on the PGA Tour through the first 14 events of the 2013 season. 712U models can currently be found in the bags of tour pros like Adam Scott (2-iron), Tim Clark (4-iron) and Geoff Ogilvy (2-iron) – players who prefer a utility iron over a hybrid as an alternative to traditional long irons.
“I don’t like the look of hybrids, but the 712U (2-iron) looks great at address,” said Ogilvy. “It is a bit stronger than a 2-iron, it goes farther than a 2-iron and it’s easy to hit. It feels great, performs how I need it to, and I like having it in my bag.”
“During the development of 712U, we worked closely with our tour players to design a utility iron that delivers a great combination of consistency and control,” said Steve Pelisek, General Manager, Titleist Golf Clubs. “The deeper CG results in a higher MOI that increases stability at impact, helping players achieve more consistent distance and trajectory control, whether hitting shots high or low.
“With the 712U being so well received out on tour, we decided to make the club available through custom order for those players that need or prefer this type of long game yardage and trajectory solution,” Pelisek said.
The 712U has a traditional profile with a rounded back design that is preferred in the address position over cavity back long irons with more offset. Players will gain added confidence at address from a club head that is slightly larger than the 2-iron, 3-iron and 4-iron Titleist MB and CB (712 Series) models.
The club is chrome plated and features a satin finish.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY: The new Titleist 712U is available by custom order only beginning May 15 with a suggested base retail price of $235 (MAP: $209) with a steel shaft and $259 (MAP: $229) with a graphite shaft. Custom up-charges may apply.

FAIRHAVEN, Mass. – Craftsmanship, performance and validation by the game’s best players provide the foundation for Master Craftsman Scotty Cameron’s newest creations, the Select GoLo 5 and GoLo S5 putters.
Available March 1, the racy mallet-style Select GoLo 5 and GoLo S5 are the newest additions to the Scotty Cameron by Titleist Select line of putters, epitomizing Cameron’s commitment to working with the best players in the world and incorporating their feedback into his designs. Since 1997 and counting, more players on the PGA Tour have trusted Scotty Cameron Fine Milled putters than any other putter.
Scotty Cameron Select GoLo 5 and GoLo S5 putters have a compact, elegantly rounded profile with a racy soleplate and Select Weighting technology for modern balance and stability.
The head design is about 10 percent smaller than the popular Select GoLo and GoLo S models, a result of Cameron’s research and testing with players on the worldwide professional tours and in his Putter Studio in California. The slightly asymmetric back profile with a pulled in heel and the contained cavity sight lines encourage a flowing stroke along the ideal arc.
Two neck configurations – GoLo 5 with a single bend shaft and GoLo S5 with a straight, near center shaft – provide options for appearance and dynamic feel, and toe flow.
“Working with the best players in the world gives me incredible feedback,” Cameron said. “The GoLo 5 and S5 are the results of that feedback for a slightly smaller head, but with the look, feel and performance of the incredibly popular GoLo. For many players the compact setup instills the confidence and control to make a flowing stroke, and hole more putts.”
Like each model in the Select putter family, GoLo 5 and GoLo S5 have a deep milled face that contributes to a softer feel and sound. Each Select putter also features a tour-validated Black Mist finish for a rich, dark, glare-free look. Race-car inspired cherry dot graphics in the back and cherry dot weights in the sole help create a modern but timeless look.
The Select family now features five modern blade models (Newport, Newport 1.5, Newport 2, Notchback, Newport 2.6), four mallets (GoLo, GoLo S, GoLo5, GoLo S5), three mid lengths (Newport 2 Mid, GoLo Mid, GoLo S Mid), and two long options (Big Sur, Big Sur S).
Refined Design: Precisely engineered surfaces and edges with elegant lines and blends. Refined Cosmetics: Framed, double milled red-dot graphics. Framed, double beveled sole weights. Precision Milled Body: CNC milled soft 303 stainless steel.? Deep Face Mill: Provides a soft, tour-preferred feel and sound.? Black Mist Finish: Rich, dark, glare free black finish combined with red-dot graphics to create a timeless look.?Select Weighting: Heel-toe weighting perfectly matched to the shaft length or player’s feel preference.?Draft Sole: Triple angled sole for square set up with camber for a smooth takeaway.?Stepless Shaft: Provides a clean, uninterrupted address appearance.?Pistolero Grip: Black pistol grip with dancing Cameron logo for a stable feel in a golfer’s hands.
