Buyers Guide 2017: Titleist 917D Driver

Titleist 917DTitleist’s latest 917D drivers are once again setting the standard for complete performance off the tee, providing maximum distance and forgiveness with precise adjustability to benefit dedicated golfers at every level of the game. Both 917D2 and 917D3 models are engineered with proprietary Active Recoil Channel 2.0 and SureFit CG technology, the result of an uncompromising “complete performance” design strategy develop the industry’s most comprehensive and efficient driver designs, which have earned immediate acceptance and validation by many of the world’s best players, including Adam Scott, Bill Haas and Jimmy Walker, who trusted a 917D2 8.5-degree model to his first major title at the PGA Championship. Key technologies include Active Recoil Channel (ARC) 2.0, a long, wide, deep sole channel, actively flexes and recoils at impact to launch the ball off the face with higher speed and lower spin for more distance. Refined thickness areas throughout the channel, including thinner heel and toe regions, produce greater face flexibility for a more consistent deflection that reduces spin and increases speed across the face. Radial Speed Face 2.0, a high-speed forged face insert, is tuned with ARC 2.0 to promote greater off-center ball speed for more overall distance. A precise High-MOI Design, with a low and deep center of gravity location, delivers stability and forgiveness by preserving off-center ball speed for more distance, more often. Finally, Titleist’s industry-leading SureFit Hosel and new SureFit CG weight system deliver the ultimate in precision fitting for every player. The 917’s adjustable technologies offer the type of customization previously available only on the Titleist Tour Van. A Titleist authorized fitter will utilize the SureFit Hosel and SureFit CG, coupled with interchangeable shafts, to determine a player’s optimal setup so they are playing a 917 driver that is fit precisely to
their swing. The stock lineup, each with a length of 45 inches, includes the Aldila Rogue M*AX 65, Fujikura Speeder Pro TS 74, Mitsubishi Diamana Limited D+ White 70, Mitsubishi Diamana Limited S+ Blue, and Mitsubishi Diamana Limited M+ Red 50.
