This is the 917 family of drivers from Titleist.
00:03
You got D2, larger, more forgiving.
00:06
And the D3, a little bit more compact and lower spin.
00:10
(motivating background music)
00:13
Both of these drivers are the first Titleist drivers
00:15
to offer a movable weight component.
00:17
It's this little weight slug right here.
00:20
Comes in a couple of varieties.
00:21
But basic gist of it is, you have
00:24
a neutral setting where there's even weight on both sides
00:29
that keeps the weight back for more forgiveness.
00:31
And then there's a second version that has
00:34
a heavier weight on one end.
00:36
You move that heavy weight to the heel side.
00:39
You help the face close a little bit more at impact.
00:42
You move it to the toe side, it's gonna hold
00:44
that face open a little bit more at impact.
00:46
It's gonna affect your right or left misses
00:50
to get you back in the fairway.
00:52
As well as all Titleist drivers have had,
00:55
it's got the 16-way adjustable hosel,
00:57
and they've expanded the way the face works,
01:00
improving their soul channel that flexes at impact
01:04
to increase ball speed and redo spin.
01:07
Both of those are great for distance.
01:10
So you've got the 917D2 and 917D3,
01:13
gold on the hot list.
01:15
Five starts in performance, five stars
01:18
in look, sound, and feel.
