Titleist Introduces New Players and Hybrid Golf Bag Collections – Players 4 Plus Model In Play This Week on PGA Tour

Recommended Posts

Press Release:

FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (Jan. 28, 2019) – Titleist, Golf’s Symbol of Excellence, introduces five new golf bag models across two distinct categories – stand and hybrid – for the 2019 season.

TITLEIST PLAYERS COLLECTION: The Titleist Players Collection stand bags – Players 4 StaDry, Players 4 Plus and Players 4 – offer feature-rich designs for dedicated golfers seeking a lightweight stand bag without sacrificing storage or durability.

The Players 4 StaDry is the ultimate performance option for golfers that walk in all weather conditions. Fourteen percent lighter than the prior generation model, Players 4 StaDry offers the same lightweight construction and features as the Players 4 – including a 25 percent increase in strap padding for more comfort while carrying – but with premium waterproof materials and seam-sealed protection. The Players 4 Plus is designed for golfers seeking the versatility and comfort of a lightweight stand bag but with extra storage options.

To commemorate the launch, the Players 4 Plus will be on display this week on the PGA Tour, carried by the caddies of Titleist brand ambassadors competing in the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The black, white and red bag model is one of 13 colorways in the Players 4 Plus line.

TITLEIST HYBRID COLLECTION: The new Titleist Hybrid Collection bags are distinctly designed for golfers who like to walk and ride, offering the perfect blend of premium cart and stand bag features.

The two new models – Hybrid 14 and Hybrid 5 – combine the versatility of a Titleist stand bag with an added cart strap loop that allows access to the valuables pocket when strapped into the cart.

The Hybrid 14, with 14 full-length club dividers, provides superior organization with maximum storage, while the Hybrid 5 offers a more lightweight, cart-friendly design.

AVAILABILITY: The new Titleist Players and Hybrid Collection golf bags will be available in golf shops beginning Feb. 1, 2019, starting at $200. Customization is available on all bag models.

Loving the idea of these new hybrid bags this year!  As someone who usually walks with a pull cart but uses buggies during league play and goes to the range a lot this is right up my alley.

Good looking bags. I also looked at the Staff Stand bag and like it too. Not a lot of difference between the Hybrid and the Staff I could tell. Nice bags though.

Saw these in the Titleist catalog about a month ago. I’m in the market for a new bag this year and the Hybrid is definitely neck and neck with the Ping Hoofer right now.

Those aren't too shabby looking. I've never been a huge fan of Titleist bags, but those are pretty sharp.

The 14 looks exactly like last year’s. I love the gray one with the red trim.

I have been back and forth between the Ping Hoofer, Vessel 2.0, and Titleist 5 Hybrid.  Haven't seen the new 2019 Titleist in PA, but was in Bluffton SC at the PGA store and they had the 2019's.  Bag looks great, but I was very disappointed in the zipper and pocket directly above the ball pocket.  The zipper was really cheap and the pocket opened up too wide.  Seemed like that pocket was an afterthought.  They clearly did not use the same zippers they used on the rest of the bag.  It was small, thin nylon zipper...like the kind on a cheap jacket.  So no Titleist bag for me.  

I want to see the new Vessel.  All else fails, I'll stay with the Ping Hoofer...not a bad fall back.

      Vessel Golf Player Stand Bag (14-way in Matte Black)
      I went through a lot of bags before I ended up with the Vessel and I'm so happy with it that I decided to do a quick review of the bag in case others considering picking one up! I was actually looking at this bag (albeit in black since the matte black wasn't available yet) last year, but when I got quoted $200 shipping out here to Hawaii that made the purchase unrealistic. My interest was piqued again when I saw a friend had picked one up so I decided to try and find one from a vendor that wasn't going to charge me the price of a bag for shipping. Luckily for me I found this bag on eBay with much more reasonable shipping. After going over the entire bag, I found it has many of the features I enjoyed on the Ping Hoofer and the Sun Mountain Four 5. The overall quality is way better, (with the Ping Hoofer coming close) which is what you'd expect when paying over $300 for a golf bag! Enough of that...on to my thoughts!

      The good:
      The layout of the 14-way top, especially the putter well! Plenty of storage including a 'stealth' valuables pocket with a lock! Extremely comfortable straps Magnetic rangefinder pouch Stealthy design with very few logos (I'm a fan of the incognito look) Enclosed base with smooth stand leg deployment Minimal tangling when pulling clubs out of the bag  Impressive build quality The okay:
      The towel hook/loop doubles as a ball marker, which looks kind of odd (UPDATE: Vessel is sending me a 2.0 towel loop!) No full length dividers No dedicated water bottle pouch. The cold item zipper pouch looks to be more dual use, so we'll see how it is on the course.  The 2.0 Player Stand bag has been released since I purchased my bag and I suspect there are a few differences between the generations, but seeing how there's not a lot that can be changed I'm guessing the difference is minimal. I could've saved myself some money figuring out a way to get this bag last year, but I'm glad I ended up with one and I look forward to getting some mileage on this incredibly sexy golf bag! 

      Feel free to post any questions in the thread and I hope y'all found this to be useful!

      Not sure if anyone else has heard this yet or not, but I have been told that the new 720 irons (or whatever Titleist decides to call them) is set to release this August (2019). If so, I would totally expect to start seeing the announcements right before either the Masters or the recently moved PGA Championship. Anyone else have more info??

      Press Release from Titleist
      TITLEIST EQUIPMENT UPDATE: The Honda Classic 

      According to Darrell Survey, for the third time this season, Titleist achieved the feat of sweeping every major equipment category at a PGA TOUR event - this time it is The Honda Classic - and by looking at the counts, the choice is overwhelmingly clear. 

      From golf balls, to drivers, fairway and hybrids, and irons to wedges and putters, the Titleist brand is the overwhelming field favorite as the Tour moves from the west coast to the Florida swing. 

      >  Titleist is the top choice in golf balls with 112 players in the field of 144 - that's 78 percent of the field and seven times the nearest competitor with 16. 

      >  One out of every three drivers in the field is a Titleist with 48 (33%) in play this week - that's 16 more than the nearest competitor with 32. 
      > The Titleist TS3 continues to be the most played single driver model on the PGA TOUR with 29, nearly double the next closest driver model with 15. 
      > The Titleist TS3 is also the most played driver on the European Tour again this week with 29. That's 20 percent of the field playing that single model. 

      > Titleist irons also accounted for nearly one-third of the field with 46 (32%) sets in play - 21 more sets than the nearest competitor. 
      > The Titleist 718 MB (20) and the 718 AP2 (14) are the top two most played iron models this week. 
      > Titleist Brand Ambassador Peter Malnati is playing the 718 AP2 Black irons (5-9) that were recently released. Malnati was shipped the irons to his home in Tennessee during his off week but never got a chance to practice with them because of inclement weather. It was the only set he brought with him to the Honda Classic and worked them into his bag this bag this week. He joins Cam Smith as the two Titleist players putting the new AP2 Black models in play. 

      > More than half of all wedges in the field this week (220/55%) are of the Vokey Design variety. The nearest competitor has 60 wedges in play. 

      > Scotty Cameron putters are the overwhelming field favorite this week with 54 (38%) in play, 14 more than the nearest competitor. 
      > More players on the PGA TOUR rely upon Scotty Cameron putters than any other brand and tops the Tour in wins with 4 this season. 

      > Titleist equipment counts at The Honda Classic vs. the Nearest Competitor (NC): 

      GOLF BALLS: 
      TITLEIST - 112 (78%) 
      NC - 16 (11%) 

      DRIVERS: 
      TITLEIST - 48 (33%) 
      NC - 32 (22%) 

      FAIRWAYS: 
      TITLEIST - 56 (31%) 
      NC - 37 (20%) 

      HYBRIDS: 
      TITLEIST - 25 (39%) 
      NC - 17 (27%) 

      IRONS: 
      TITLEIST - 46 (32%) 
      NC - 25 (17%) 

      WEDGES: 
      TITLEIST - 220 (55%) 
      NC - 60 (15%)

      TITLEIST - 54 (38%) 
      NC - 40 (28%)

      One of the areas we are going to strive to bring more information to the forum in the new year will be news from all the tours, both equipment news and anything else that we think is interesting or noteworthy.
      But since most of us are here because we are equipment nerds, we'll try and focus on that mainly.   And I want to bring you more than just a simple WITB posting after a tour event, sure we have have that as well, but the goal is to go a bit deeper and provide more info than you'd normally see.    As such, we've reached out to all the OEM's to supply us with any tour news they have on a regular basis.    
      In full disclose for simplicity sake many times, it will be just publishing a press release they have sent out.    Some OEM's may be better at this than others, so we just want to make it understood, it's not favoring any particular company but just an effort to provide the forum with as much info as you care to see from each company on it's equipment news/counts for the week.
      So with the PGA Tour on break until January, we have some info from the European and Japan Tours provided by Titleist.    Quite honestly, I found some of this info surprising as well as interesting.   I always knew they dominated the ball market on tour, but the numbers are pretty eye opening, as well as it's performance in the club counts as well.
      Feel free to chime in with your thoughts on this an all other info we post here going forward.  I know most of us that are avid golfers don't necessarily make our club/ball purchasing decisions based on tour usage, but if nothing else,  it'll make for some good conversation. 
      edit: Sorry for the PDF I couldn't get it to save as a Pic for some reason.
       
      Titleist Tour Counts Week of Nov 25.txt
       
       
      Adding another count chart.  I found two things interesting on this one.  
      2018COUNTS.pdf
      1) On the PGA Tour Bridgestone has only 3% of the ball share, but yet had 13% of PGA Tour wins on the season.  I guess you could call that the Bryson effect with a little help from Tiger. 
      2) Also the Australasian Tour Titleist had 100% of the wins.  There was some presences from the other companies in play, but all 13 victories went to Titleist.
