Titleist has begun seeding of its prototype "818 hybrids" with a number of brand ambassadors at this week's Scottish Open.

Prototype 818 hybrids make their debut at the European Tour Rolex Series event following the introduction of prototype 718 irons at the HNA Open de France.

Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston, Stephen Gallacher, Ian Poulter, Bernd Wiesberger, Robert Karlsson and Brett Rumford are among those to have already sampled the new 818 hybrids.

Titleist tells us that its Tour validation process allows the company to "ensure every club is delivering on the brand promise of innovation, performance and quality excellence."

A total of 16 sets of new prototype Titleist 718 irons were put into play at last week’s The Greenbrier Classic on the PGA Tour, where Titleist was also the top choice in irons with 47 sets (30%) and hybrids with 31 sets (35%).
