I am searching for a smaller head driver and these 3 seem to fit the bill well. What are the differences between these drivers? Thanks

Had the 975D and 983K for quite a while at times. Liked them both. 983K bigger than 975D. Both excellent though. 983K a bit easier to hit. Personally, I don't like either of them as much as my lovely 983E which I've had for a while and will take to the grave .

I have read somewhere that the 983K isn't legal any longer. It might have been another thread on here. Is this true?

I've never heard anything like that.

I think maybe the 983 line was one of the first Titleist offerings to use a different type of metal in the head but wouldn't swear to it. It has been so long it is hard to keep track. The 975 is a good club, but probably not as good or as easy to hit as a 983. You could probably get either real cheap. With a little patience, you could probably get both a 975 and 983 for under $100 combined so it is almost worth it to buy both and see which one you like best.

Personally, I don't like either of them as much as my lovely 983E which I've had for a while and will take to the grave.

I am the same way. I am going to keep mine until I find something I can hit straighter and further, which is really hard for me to find.

It looks like some of the 983K's are nonconforming while most should still conform. Here's a photo that should help.

Yes, the illegal club has a special marking on the bottom. Probably be real hard to find one, should be plenty of the legal ones around.

Oh, yeah, that likely goes back to the years when the R&A; had a CoR of 0.86 instead of the 0.83 the USGA stuck to.

Both are now 0.83.

No chit! That's gotta be harder than hitting a 0.5 iron!

You would think that I hit a 6.5 off the tee with my super low trajectory. But I hit a 10.5.

I have a 983E, agree with previous posters that it's not going anywhere.  It's not my #1 driver, but it still gets played quite a bit.  I've hit the different 975 versions, nice drivers, but I think the biggest jump in Titleist driver playability (is that a word?) occurred with the 983 series (since then they've all been relatively forgiving).

I owned a 976R which was even smaller than the 975D.  Sold it a while back for peanuts.  You could hit it off the deck with its more shallow, but classic, profile.

My 907 is a little longer on average, and a little more forgiving.  But the 983 is just as long if not longer on a perfectly struck shot, and it has a lower trajectory.

    • So guys I have an update. For the past week and a half I have gone to the putting green every day and practiced my putting and chipping for a little over an hour. I hit a bucket twice in that time. Today I shot my new personal best of an 81 at a par 71 course from the whites (69.4/129).     Today’s stats: FIR: 7/13  GIR: 11/18 1 putts: 5 2 putts: 10 3 putts: 3   Other takeaways today: - Five 1-putts and only three 3-putts for me is excellent. I would attribute this to making all of my 2-3 foot putts this round except for one on the back. That said, my chipping was relatively good today, setting up roughly five 1-putt opportunities all of which I converted on.  - I still did not make a single putt today outside three feet. Realistically I think this should happen once or twice a round so I think there is still work to be done on my putting. - Despite hitting only 7/13 fairways I managed to hit 11 greens. I hit driver 11 times today. 10 of which landed 280 yards or more from the tees but 4 of which did not hit fairway. 3 drives put me in the deep rough or woods. 1 ball was lost today. This leads me to believe my mid-short iron parts of my game are strengths, driving is so-so, chipping is so-so and putting is still poor to average. 
    • Boogie!! Worked on the drill some yesterday and today. That’s a good looking backswing.     
    • Well, I got to figure out this huge push slice. Like starts 30-40 yards right and cuts another 10-20.  
    • I’m sure he made his native country of Slovakia proud. 😜 
    • No one is telling him what to be offended by. This makes no sense.
