Titleist 909D3

7 posts in this topic

Okay, okay I know I just created a new thread on the 907D2, but Iv'e got another one for you!!!! the new(er) 909D3. I like the idea of a 440cc clubhead, just because there are times 460 just looks a little too big. Everyone told me that the 907 wasn't too successful partially due to the high spin rate, and that was completely obvious to me, as I would carry a drive 264 and the total distance would be 267 . Anyways I hit the D3 a couple times, and I got a medium trajectory, which I like, and actually got some roll, which I also like. I figured that I must spin the ball alot (hence the 3 yard roll with the 907), and that I 909D3 might provide a little more distance on the ground for me. (comfortable swingspeed= 98-99. 600 yard swingspeed= about 104)
I'm still young (14) and have some growing to do (I HOPE), so I think the low spin driver will suit me well. I currently use 9*iMix FT-9 w/ Graf. ProLaunch Blue 65R, and IMO I would rate it a mid spin mid launch driver.
Does anyone own/have experience with the 909D3?
Reccommend Voodoo over Diamana (would go stiff. i like diamana never hit voodoo)
Thanks for replies. happy holidays.

i found the VooDoo to almost launch too low with the D3 head
and found it boardy as well
hated the made for Diamana....balloon monster!

i have hit the 909 on course w the stock MAtrix shaft and that was beauty
i have a Graphite Designs PM shaft in mine....well i havent hit it yet as still in the mail and there is snow on the ground as well

but i have hit the 909 on course and its a great driver, worthy of dumping the 905T i used to have

there are a lot of great reviwes on it, including here
do a search to find them

i would recomend the 909 over the 907, and on par w the 905 series

I'll give it a good review as well. I bought one 2 years ago when they first came out and still use it now. I've gone through a bunch of drivers (TM Superdeep, FT Tour, 9064LS, Superfast TP) over the last few months and ended back on the 909D3. It's not the hottest head out there now but I just prefer the way it feels to everything else I've had or hit. It gives me the right amount of forgiveness and distance so I'm happy. I just bought one of the new 910's so we'll see how that goes.

I've gone from 907 D2 (9.5) to 909 D3 (8.5) and it was one of the best decision I've made yet. 909 D3 definitely has lower spin rate and you will notice minimum distance loss, especially when you get 20+ mile face wind.

Trying to decide between 910 D3 and R11.  Anyone have any info on which one spins less?  I've heard arguments both ways...

I think the R11 spins less.  The 910D3 isn't far behind though.

The D3 is easily going to be a lower spin. From what I've seen in TM most of their heads give a high spin rate to keep the ball in the air with slower swing speeds, and TM markets mostly on people with slower swing speeds because they constantly focus on distance. The D3 is more of a "players" club with the traditional pear shape and penetrating ballflight. I think the R11 is extremely ugly, a white crown? Come on, I understand the concept with the putters, but the driver is just excess. Ugly ass club, have yet to hit it though, I havent liked any TM driver since the original R7 Quad with the exception of the Superfast TP.

    • Iron Game Suffers when Driver Going Well
      For high handicappers myself included, this is typical.   I think it is b/c we don't have the same swing for irons and longer clubs.  If we get them both right in the same round, it is probably by pure luck or coincidence.  Grin and bear, and enjoy the journey.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      The topic title is the question who is the greatest golfer, the poll is the question who was the best. Two different things in my opinion. There's no doubt to me Tiger was a better golfer. How could he not? Spieth, McIlroy, Day but even guys like Wiesberger, Luiten and Donaldson play better golf than Jack. The game evolved so much over the years, and got so much more professional. If Jack would have been around in this era he would benefit from all that as well and be a better golfer than he was (and probably top those guys I just mentioned). But who was the greatest. How do you measure that (can you)? Tiger was dominant in a stronger field, winning more titles than you can count. Jack was the first of a kind, winning the biggest titles (majors) over an enourmous span and having the most of them. Isn't it mostly a matter of personal who you find 'greater'? For me Johan Cruyff is the greatest Dutch football player of time, but I have no doubt that Dennis Bergkamp and Arjen Robben were/are better because the game evolved. 
    • Making a Murderer Discussion Thread (Spoilers Likely)
      Obvisously... she took his case about a month ago. On one hand I hope Avery is guilty as hell, on the other hand it would be an amazing story and twist if turns out to be set up and she can prove that. I think that chance is less than 1%, but still..... Possibly, good point. Should be quite some blood though since they found 'drops', meaning it was dripping from (in this theory) his glove. Exactly my point. I don't think the blood was freely flowing, because than there should be a lot more blood in the car. They found blood consisting with bloody hair. Seems to me, and I know I'm not an expert, that she was already dead when she was in the car, because that would explain the little amount of blood found (no pumping of the heart, no flow of blood) and the place it was found (in the back). One can easily argue that he killed in the garage, moved her to the car, and only then got the plan to burn her instead and moved her again; to the pit. But the 'problem' is that that's not what the DA said what happenend. In my opinion that blood in the car contradicts the story (or truth) he wants us and the jury to believe, and contradicts also with the story of Dassey which is the only thing that links Dassey to the case: his own words. That doesn't mean Avery is innocent, but it might raise some doubt. The DA should stick with the facts, not filling in the blanks with guessing. If he can't prove exact chronologically he shouldn't state it as 'fact'.   Absolutely. I'm not convinced in anything, not in my opinion, not in yours, not at all in the people who made the documentary. Also not a fan of conspiracy theory's. I don't think the murder was planted on him, but I do think some mistakes were made by the justice system. Mistakes that possibly should have lead to his and maybe even more Dassey's release, even though there's a big chance he did it. That's for me perhaps the most interesting part in this case and in the discussion. If we want a justice system where the chance is close to 0% that we convict someone innocent, and the prosecution and police need to follow the rules, it means sometimes the guilty walk free. I think everything they found on the compount while Manitowoc detectives were present should have been excluded. I think the DNA on the blood of the bullet should have been excluded. I think the 'confession' of Dassey should have been excluded. I think Dassey should have given at least a new trial, but that was denied by the same judge which handled his initial case (?!).
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      A long time ago, by Tiger's own admission,  said a golfer's career is measured by "majors won" . So if Woody does not break Jack's major record, then according to Woody, his career will be second to Jack's. Now Jack has said that he expects (expected) Woody to break his major record. So Jack is saying he expects Woody will have the better career.  These are the only two guys who would know who had the best career.   Neither one is going to be the GOAT. They will just be a GOTE. 
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Nope, you blindly worship Jack.  It is obvious that you have not read much, if any, of the thread.  But hey, you saw Jack.  In person, yet.  So what.  I did too.  I saw him win his last USGA championship at Cherry Hills.  I saw Tiger play as well - although in person I only saw practice rounds.  So what.  That does not make my assessment of their respective careers more or less credible.  Geee, I never saw Hogan play so I guess we cannot count him in the discussion.   You think Jack was better.  That is fine.  You are entitled to your opinion.  Just don't spoil it with specious reasons or arguments.  Because those we will slice apart like one of Klinger's salamis.
