NEW Titleist 915D Driver, First Look - Page 3

Love it. Who really cares, why not tee up this new 915 and give it a shot at least. I'm due.

I can assure you that 270 is much longer than average. If you want to upgrade for the sake of having something shiney and new though, hell, go for it. You may pick up yards with the newer 913 or 915. Demo it first though, obviously.

Thanks. I do play close attention to my driver distance and I'm actually 266 avg to the button but 270 sounds better and it's only a few away.. Haha.

It's taken a long time for me learn how to generate the club head speed without trying to rip it hard. I'm being told I could get 15 more yards out of a new driver over a 5 year old 909. Is that true?

My good drives with my 913D3 aren't noticeably longer or better then my good drives were with my 983E that I played for 10 years before. Overall I am more consistent with the 913 because the shaft fits me better and the 913 is more forgiving than the 983.

I'm attending a Titleist media day tomorrow for the 915 line. If you guys have any questions post them in the thread and I'll do my best to get them answered.

This would be my question - and will the head alone be available?

Unless, you're a collegiate player or pro.

It's not really. Most varsity high school players here can hit it at least 270. They might not do it with a high degree of accuracy (I placed fifth in a tournament today on a tight course because a lot of people spray their tee shots), but they can get it out there. The impressive part is when you get to 270+ consistently with accuracy.

 

Just as an example, one of the players that graduated from my school last year had an i20 driver for a bit less than two years. He had to replace it this summer because he cracked the face on it. Not a dummy mark on the crown, but he literally started to crack the face on the club. Watching his tee shots is a bit like watching a fighter jet take off (and he's going to the Air Force Academy, which seems fitting).

I will ask but there's a good chance that won't happen.

Their answer is that they do sell the heads only and the shaft is included for free ;-)

Just a smaller head, 400 cc, probably won't be available to the public.
