Titleist 917D2/D3

Our Review:

A driver with movable weight is almost as common nowadays as a tour player with a logo on the sleeve. But the weight slug on the sole here is different. The cylinder comes in two forms: a neutral version and a top-heavy version. The neutral version keeps the weight low and deep to maximize forgiveness. The top-heavy version keeps that weight back, but it can be flipped so there's more mass toward the heel or toe to control direction. Best of all, the 917 drivers accomplish this weighting jujitsu without touching the classic look, sound and feel of a Titleist driver.

    The face feels responsive and stable.

    Classic, really like the shape. Easy to swing. It's the shorter shaft. The ball feels like it melts off the face and jumps. Very pleasing. The performance is so friendly, just simple to swing and very straight.

    I like the grayish color. This driver goes back to the old, crisp, pleasing sound at impact. The trajectory doesn’t balloon, and off-center hits aren’t punitive.

    I love the classic shape of a Titleist driver. The weighting options helped get me to a good spot, so I think working with a qualified fitter is important. The easier I swung, the more the technology seemed to help me.
