Titleist has introduced the new DT TruSoft golf ball which has been designed and manufactured to provide a soft feel to their shots.  It has been designed with a fast, very low compression core and soft pure ionomer cover – the softest core construction and ionomer cover blend Titleist has ever used.  The new core and cover work together to provide a uniquely soft feel and sound, while delivering very low spin in the long game for distance and short game spin for playabiity into and around the green.  With a 376 tetrahedra dimple design an aerodynamically consistent flight is promised.

In each of our past three introductions of DT models, we have continued to provide golfers with softer and softer feel,” said Michael Mahoney, Director, Titleist Golf Ball Product Management.  But wait, there’s more…

Golf Books #287 (Arnold Palmer: Homespun Stories of the King)

Sep 12th

About 40 miles east of Pittsburgh is the small town of Latrobe, Pennsylvania, a place Arnold Palmer called home for the entirety of his lifetime. “It is impossible to understand Palmer without first understanding Latrobe,” Jim Nantz once said.

The world knew Palmer as The King. The Palmer Latrobe knew was funnier, goofier, saltier, and less grandiose than the one justifiably loved around the globe.

While the recipe for a classic Arnold Palmer Tea calls for one part lemonade, three parts tea, a more suitable blend might be three parts beer, one part champagne–at least when it comes to encapsulating the man those closest to him knew.

In Arnold Palmer: Homespun Stories of the King, journalist, Latrobe resident, and accidental Palmer insider Chris Rodell draws upon over 100 interviews with the golf great conducted over 20 years, providing an intimate, charming, and at times irreverent glimpse at the icon outside the spotlight. Interspersed with fascinating insight into Palmer’s dominance on the course, what emerges is a singular portrait of a true legend that no golf fan will want to miss.
