The Advantages of Titanium Golf Clubs
Titanium is primarily advantageous for golfers when they are driving because most titanium heads allow for a greater sweet spot. Find out why titanium shouldn't be used for fairway woods with help from a Class A member of the PGA of America in this free video on titanium golf clubs.

Hi, this is Kevin Battersby with battersbygolf.com in Coconut Creek, Florida. Let's talk about some of the advantages of having a titanium golf club. In this day and age, the titanium is used specifically, and more importantly, for just driving. And the reason being is that the head's nowadays, the limit is up to 460 cc's. This club here is not quite 460. But, what it allows me to do, with the titanium, number one, I like the sound of it. Which, it just makes a nice sound as opposed to the other woods. But two, it's a larger head. This is probably a 420, and 460's the limit, now. And, what it enables you to do is have a bit larger "sweet spot", similar to the tennis racket that went bigger with the Prince. Okay? Similar to the cavity back in the irons, which moves the sweet spot. The titanium allows the sweet spot to get bigger, and now you have, actually, a larger trampoline effect. When you're hitting your drivers with the titanium, you want to try to catch the ball up here, and the ball will spring load off that, it's called the trampoline effect. And the titanium seems to be a nice feel, and it has a nice roll on the ball, and produces a very strong hit for the golfer. In my opinion, the titanium is best used for your driver, and the reason being is you can have a larger club face, such as this. But the advantage is you can tee this ball up every time. And you can tee it as high as you need to. I don't particularly like the titanium for fairway woods, especially in Florida. That larger head profile, off a tight lie down here in Florida, makes it, at least by the eye, much tougher to hit. And actually for the novice golfer, the titanium head is much harder to hit off the fairway whether it's your three or five wood. That's why you see the low-profile clubs such as the Adams, tight lies.
