T HE soon-to-be-released latest Titleist drivers – the 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 employed by Titleist club R&D in a bid to develop the industry’s most comprehensive and efficient driver designs. The 917 drivers 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° model to his first major title at the US PGA Championship. A feature of the new line is Titleist’s Active Recoil Channel (ARC) 2.0, a long, wide, deep sole channel that 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. Other key features include: * Radial Speed Face 2.0, a high-speed forged face insert, is tuned with ARC 2.0 to promote greater off-centre ball speed for more overall distance. * A precise, high-MOI design, with a low and deep centre of gravity location, delivers stability and forgiveness by preserving off-centre ball speed for more distance, more often. * Titleist’s industry-leading SureFit Hosel and new SureFit CG weight system deliver the ultimate in precision fitting for every player. The proprietary 16-setting SureFit Hosel allows golfers to set loft and lie independently to optimise ball flight for improved shot control and maximum distance. Joining the 917 drivers are complementing fairway woods, the 917F2 and 917F3. Setting the standard for complete performance from both the tee and turf, the new Titleist fairway woods provide more distance and forgiveness with the most precise customisation available to dedicated golfers of all skill levels. The woods, like their 917 driver counterparts, are designed using new patented Active Recoil Channel 2.0 and SureFit CG technology to produce an uncompromising combination of distance, forgiveness and trajectory control with tour-preferred looks, sound and feel.
