For years, the reputation of Titleist has been,
00:08
it's for the elite player, the upper echelon
00:11
of the pyramid of influence.
00:12
I love when you talk about me.
00:14
The fact is with the new 915 D2, D3 drivers from Titleist,
00:18
these are the most playable Titleist drivers
00:20
for guys like me.
00:22
How do they get there?
00:23
They do this channel up front, in the sole,
00:27
it's designed to make the face flex consistently,
00:29
so you're going to get better ball speed,
00:31
not just in the center, but all around the face,
00:33
where I hit it, and you're going to get lower spin.
00:36
More speed, low spin,
00:37
those are two of the hallmarks of distance.
00:39
The other cool thing about the driver
00:41
is the adjustable hosel, and the reason is,
00:44
it's not just one area of adjustability, it's two,
00:47
you can adjust loft, you can adjust lie angle,
00:50
and here you can do it independently,
00:52
and the neat trick about that is, a lot of drivers,
00:55
if you adjust the loft, you're also altering the lie angle.
00:58
Here you can keep the lie angle just the way you want it,
01:00
while adjusting the loft, or vice versa.
01:03
The other cool thing is, they have more than one model,
01:06
they also have D3 model, a little smaller head,
01:09
that some better players prefer, and kind of like
01:11
the underground menu at In-N-Out Burger,
01:14
they have D4 in their made-only-to-order program,
01:18
that's really cool.
01:19
And finally, you'd think this might get a little daunting,
01:22
with this A1, B3 settings,
01:25
you kind of think you need a bingo card to figure it out,
01:28
well Titleist gives you that bingo card
01:30
that tells you exactly what every setting does.
01:32
Well that's the fact right,
01:34
there are 16 settings on this driver,
01:36
Jordan Spieth uses the 915 D2 to win two majors,
01:39
I use the same driver with different settings,
01:42
I didn't win any majors, but it worked for me.
01:44
Hey, no one is confusing you with Jordan Spieth.
