Every piece of Tour59 equipment starts its life as a raw billet of specially selected 1020 steel. We are proud to produce a product in which we believe its quality and performance for many reasons are unmatched. Throughout the five year product development designer, Jon Fitzpatrick, has not only located some the best engineering companies but redeveloped their manufacturing techniques in order to turn their experience from other industries such as aerospace to golf.
The design of each head utilises an "Optimum Highwave" centre of gravity in order to effectively control ball flight trajectory. Even with higher lofted wedges a more penetrating flight can be produced without loss of spin.
Alongside our forgers we have looked in detail at the forging process and our intended application leading us to develop a process called "FlowLine" forging. This ensures the grain contained within each piece of steel is aligned consistently and transmits a particular resonance or feel onto the user.
Our machining engineers, who manufacture precision components working with industries as diverse as automotive, defence, off shore, medical and aerospace have unrivalled experience in producing product to the very highest standards. They have invested over the last 30 years in technology which allows component production to the highest tolerances possible, allowing us to not only achieve golf industry conformity but to reset industry standards.
Our partnership with this cutting edge British company completely redefined our already ambitious ideas for tolerances. Our face milling has a precisely measured surface roughness (<4.5RA) and our TRI-V groove cutting tool allows the production of a uniquely effective face groove within conforming R and A and USGA limits, all this made possible using the latest high technology CNC machines.
Once this much time and effort had gone into producing a highly effective clubface surface we didnít want to detract from its performance or feel by coating it in a thick layer of chrome. Instead, Tour59 offer a range of coloured PVD coatings. PVD adds a hard wearing but incredibly thin layer to the club heads surface which without blanketing the all important face milling or groove edges still offers a protective rust coating and an attractive cosmetic finish.
Specialist wedge shafts and their correct fitting further enhance the feel experienced by each player and can improve shot dispersion and trajectory.
