Titleist 917D2/D3

Our Review:

It's not surprising our player-testers used the word "classic" 10 times to describe the 917 series, but the drivers have present-day tech, too. The hosel's 16 independent loft-and-lie settings provide 112 ball-flight options across the line's two heads and seven lofts. There's also a weight in the sole that can be adjusted to promote a draw or fade, and the angled shape means there's less chance of increasing spin or forfeiting stability on off-center hits. Finally, the new sole channel works better than in the 915 model, primarily because of selective thinning in the heel-and-toe portions.
Specs: D2: 8.5, 9.5, 10.5, 12; D3: 8.5, 9.5, 10.5. (Adjustable hosel +1.5/-.75 degrees.)
Price: $500

Player Comments
  • low
    The old standby that won't let you down. Some surprising forgiveness, as well.
  • mid
    It's a classic from the looks to the sound. It has a fighting trajectory that muscles through the air. That familiar feel puts you in a comfort mind-set.
  • high
    Old-school cool. There's nothing wasted about the design.
