Titanium Golf Clubs – A Rich History

Titanium is one of the newer materials available for high quality golf clubs. Although this substance has been in use for nearly three centuries, it has only been recently that manufacturers discovered it was ideal for making titanium golf clubs heralded for their performance on the course.

Titanium History

This metal was first discovered at the end of the 18th century by an English pastor, Reverend William Gregor. It was not until 1910, however, that Matthew Hunter, an American metallurgist, first produced it in pure form. The name is derived from the Greek Titans. According to Greek mythology the Titans were the first sons of the earth and great defenders known for their strength.

The earth’s crust is composed of approximately one percent titanium. As an element, titanium is the 9th most common element composing the earth’s crust. The atomic number is 22 and its atomic weight is 47.867. The metal melts at a temperate of 3,304 degrees. The most common use of this element is in the form of titanium oxide which is used as a pigment in white paint.

Golf Club History

The game of golf first originated in the 15th century in Edinburgh, Scotland. The name of the game is derived from the Scottish word “goulf” which means to strike or cuff. During the early days, there were few accepted rules and a varying number of holes of the golf course. In fact the venerable St. Andrews Golf Course first featured 22 holes of play, with only 11 actual holes which were played twice, reversing at the 11th hole. Course officials in 1764 combined several of the shorter holes and brought complete play of the course to 18 holes which is the standard today.

The first golf clubs were made of wood found in the local area. It was not until the 1930s that metal was first used in a golf club’s head and shaft. It did not take long for this material to become quite popular due to its lighter weight, durability, and the ability to increase drive distance.

The next major development occurred in the 1970s, when manufacturers first began to use titanium for golf club heads. Within a short amount of time, graphite was employed to build the shafts of titanium golf clubs, producing clubs which could drive the ball longer than any other previous models.

Advantages of Titanium Golf Clubs

What are the advantages of using titanium golf clubs? The metal is extremely strong and yet light in weight. It is lighter than steel but heavier than aluminum. It is non-corrosive and very durable. Titanium golf clubs hold up exceptionally well in a variety of conditions including water and high heat.

For the best equipment, titanium golf clubs are the way to go.
