Just like the XXIO9 driver, the Utilities feature a heavier head and a newly developed shaft that is lighter and has a balance point that is closer to the grip. These features result in a more efficient head path for greater distance. Thanks to the new face and sole design, these woods provide forgiveness for greater distance. .
The face has been updated from the previous open-face structure to a new cup face structure which enhances COR performance across the entire face. In addition, enlarging the thinner surrounding area of the face near the heel and toe creates a sweet spot 10% larger than that of the previous model and improves the carry distance for off-center shots
