Titleist 909

107 posts in this topic

Titleist has put out a line to succeed the 907 line. The 907 line was okay but did not have the success the 905 line had, especially the 905R. So here's the next line in the Titleist driver family:

That just looks dumb.
I doubt I'll drop the 905R for a long time.

Watch out on the US Open this week, tour players are hitting (and liking these) I like to wait a few months to see if they stay in the bag before getting excited. Think my next driver will be the fti low cg instead of these though. 905r has been great but its time to get an update.

Where'd you grab those pictures from?
Please tell me at your course.
I'd like to try them out to see if they are better or just as bad as the 07s

Anyone have pics at address?

I would like to see a somewhat traditional look, minus the largeness of course :)

I think you can tell from the sole pics that the D3 is a bit more of a pear shape.

They look like the 907D's with a different sole plate. Same shallow-pear head design.

Did you hit any of them?

I, for one, am a big fan of the 907-D1, although I must be in the minority. I do still have my 905-R and hit it on occasion. I get about 5-10 yrds more with it than the D1, but I hit the D1 much straighter......

These 909s look like a bit of a departure for Titleist in terms of the soleplate (chromed look and the pattern on it). Reminds me of the old Taylor Bubble Burners soleplate. The weight or acoustic plug near the back also is remincent of a TM wood.

Guess we will see what the Titleist pros thinl this weekend?

The 907s don't have a pear-shaped head. That's one of the things they're returning to with one of the models, it would appear.

They're also not bore-thru. I think it's awfully silly to dismiss them at this point as "907Ds with a different sole plate."

Is it true that the 909 D3 is like 420cc's or something like that?

That's the rumor I've heard. Beyond that, I can't say.

anyone noticed they look like tm burner ?

I think they look a bit more like some Cobra drivers than anything else.

They have a weight plug in the back like the Tour Burner and Burner, but Titleist drivers have had a weight/sound plug in the bottom for quite a few years now. It's just moved back. The swooping lines look a teeny bit like the Burner, but the shape of the heads isn't close to being the same at all, and the graphics really aren't that close, either. There's only so much you can do on the bottom of a driver, you know.

I thought

exactly the same thing; that is, that the drivers bear a family resemblance to the Cobra drivers. Of course that might be natural, as Cobra is owned by Acushnet, as is Titleist. I like the look of them both. Of course, they look like contemporary drivers. I'll bet they perform well, too.

I'm intrigued by the D3. I like the smaller, pear shaped head (I would be using an r7 425 now if not for the closed face). Also, I like to tinker with my clubs and replace shafts, etc. myself - much easier with a non bore-thru head.

yeah i agree with with many of you. it does seem to look like a burner driver. seems to be a completely different look to what titleist usually come out with. who else is using it on tour?

    • I agree with the first reply. Take some time away and give yourself an opportunity to recharge. We all have our slumps - even the tour pros. Remember, it's just a way to get some fresh air and exercise!  
    • I had a stretch like that about a month ago. For a few solid weeks (playing nearly every day), I couldn't break 80 for the life of me. I kept shooting 83, 86, 84... that sort of thing. And I think I was just trying too hard to fix everything all at once.  I started to overthink about mechanics and my confidence was low and I was tense over every shot and every putt and it all just compounded into poor scores and frustration. But then I decided to take a few days off and then followed it up with a few good sessions on the driving range where I focused on swinging smoothly and swinging within myself.  The issues I was dealing with seemed to fix themselves.  I didn't change anything about my swing, I just focused on approaching the game with "ease".  And at the moment I am playing some of the best golf in my life! Everybody goes through their slumps. Maybe just take some time away and when you return remind yourself to slow down and play within yourself. I bet that will help a lot!
    • I disagree with this. Let's take Titleist and/or Mizuno for example, the manufacturing tolerances are the same, the heads are all coming from the same factories and they all get assembled in the same building. In terms of design they probably spend much less time on the muscle back irons because there is only so much you can do with a blade design. More time goes into the design, R&D of the AP irons than the blades.
    • I was in the same place as u about 9 months ago. My home course was a very tight challenging par 66 golf course. Between the terrible hooking and the complete inability to get the golf ball in the air and the losing of 14 golf balls during one round I absolutely hit rock bottom. I was terribly depressed, angry, and heart broken. Unlike most everyone I know, golf is the only interest I possess other than my family. I own firearms but I do not hunt. I enjoy shooting and bowling over work but Im not overly passionate about either. My round on that given day concluded with me on 18 25 yards before the green aimed away from it. I retrieved the last 9 balls from my bag and hit every single one as hard as I could into the lake!!! I yelled, I cussed, I screamed, I behaved like an absolute lunatic. Broken and ashamed, I returned to my car and swore that no matter what I was done for six weeks. I had lost control and track of my priorities. I was holding golf above all else including my beautiful wife and amazing young son. Im ashamed to admit that esp publicly, but golf had consumed me. It was hell, but for six weeks; no golf channel, no golf browsing, no sand trap visits, didnt touch a golf ball or golf club. After six weeks and re prioritizing my life (getting my shit together) I returned refreshed and re discovered my love for the game. And now Ive dropped 8 strokes from my handicap and have done so while playing much longer more difficult courses. And MOST importantly Ive learned to balance golf with life and things that actually matter. Like family!! If u have reached the point u are at now, u are in danger of becoming me. RUN!!! Dont walk...RUN away from golf before its too late. For six weeks ignore all things golf at any and all costs!! Then come back and see what happens. Hopefully u rekindle your passion, if not, theres no law that says u must play golf. There comes a point where giving it up is the right move. ;) But I bet it doesnt come to that. Best of luck!!!!  P.s. Golf takes a lot of time away from the ones we love. Spend that extra time with those u cherish most.
