The Titleist 909 driver is a dramatic improvement on the recent drivers from their stable.
Titleist drivers have always looked very classy and for all you Titleist purists out there you will be pleased to hear that fine tradition has been continued.
However it is in the performance of the club where the big changes have occurred as all 3 of the 909 D models are much more alive than the previous models. The feel and sounds at impact is excellent and for a better players driver they are reasonably forgiving, although if you put a bad swing on one you will notice the difference.
However as better players we all hit it out of the middle don’t we so we are all going to appreciate the consistency of the strike and the fact we can move the ball left, right and change the trajectory to suit.
There are 3 models in the D2, D3 and DComp and we’re not going to pick the best one because that is Titleist’s job. Each head has different spin and launch characteristics and you need to combine these with the correct shaft top get the best model for you.
The D2 has a slightly longer 460cc titanium head head for a mid launch with low spin. The D3 is also titanium with a smaller 440cc head for low launch and low spin, ideal for very low handicap players and the DComp is a composite titanium and carbon head for High launch and mid spin.
All 3 models are excellent and in our view this is one of the best new drivers in the market this year, so get along to a Titleist supplier and try one out.
