The Titleist 913 D2 Driver is designed to provide more speed, distance and precision fitting with Tour preferred looks, sound and feel.
The design of the 913 driver centres around creating more distance and less spin through more efficient weighting and an improved CG location. Acushnet's engineers created the face using a Forged Variable Thickness Insert with a central thick portion combined with thinner, variable tapered thickness. Thinning the face away from the centre creates more forgiveness and speed across the entire face.
The new forged face is 2 grams lighter than previous models and increases ball speeds on off-centre hits by up to 2mph. There is an 11% increase in the maximum ball speed area versus the 910 drivers, which means heel and toe mishits will go further.
Better launch conditions are achieved in the Titleist 913 driver by lowering the centre of gravity, closer to the neutral axis that runs diagonally from the clubface to the rear of the sole. By removing weight from the face and using a new weight configuration on the sole, the centre of gravity is positioned to improve forgiveness, workability and performance.
The Titleist 913 D2 has specific centre of gravity designed to be more forgiving, with more of a draw bias than it's 913 D3 sibling.
The 913 driver has a redesigned Surefit Tour Weight in the rear of the sole. The weight is 2 grams heavier than before with newly designed screws that ensure the weight of the clubhead is positioned lower.
The Titleist 913 Driver is essentially designed to be a driver that is better performing, offers more speed and distance and can be adjusted to suit a golfer's specific swing and desired flight.

The Titleist 913 D2 driver is a good improvement on the 910 version. The centre of gravity has been lowered to reduce the spin on the ball and it is now the same launch and spin as the D3 version. However the main difference between the two models is that the D2 has a 460cc head which will offer a little bit more forgiveness and a little draw bias too.
If you hit it out of the middle then you may not notice much difference to 910. However for off-centre hits, Titleist have increased the speed of the face so that you get around 2mph more ball speed from toe hits and just over 1% for low on the heel. This may not sound much but 2mph will give you an extra 4-6 yards which is about half a club less into the green.
The sound has been tweaked a little too and in our tests it sounded very good with a lovely feel too. The forgiveness is very good and is actually amongst the best in the market so the Titleist 913 D2 driver should be in the bags of high single figure or even low teens handicap golfers as it is a very good all-rounder.
The Sure Fit Tour hosel is retained from the 910 and we feel that this is the best adjustable hosel in the market as you can change the loft and lie independently by up to 2.25 degrees to get the best results from your swing. It may cost more but a visit to a Titleist fitter will be worth every penny as getting the right configuration or loft, lie and shaft can result in a big improvement in consistency, accuracy and distance.
The new face graphics may not appeal to all, but on performance alone, the Titleist 913 driver is still the one to beat in our books.
