New Titleist 915 Driver Spotted at Congressional
Some Titleist staff players have been testing the new 915 D2 and D3 drivers on the range at Congressional CC this week in preparation for the inevitable replacement of the current 913 series. Though the folks at Titleist are keeping tight-lipped about the new product line it's evident from the photos that a major design change has taken place.
Check out the slot in the sole right behind the clubface -- if this looks familiar it's because a similar design has been used by TaylorMade and Adams in recent years to produce better ballspeed and lower spin on shots struck low on the clubface, right where most recreational players tend to miss. Assume that this design feature will make the 915 series more forgiving and playable than the 913 series drivers, which were excellent in their own right.
Another feature of the 915 series appears to be similar adjustable hosel technology to the 913 series, which allows for independent loft and lie tuning. Expect a 460cc D2 model as well as a slightly smaller, more pear-shaped D3 model. If you're interested in Titleist's new drivers you can look for them to be available sometime in the late summer or fall.
