The New Titleist Driver Is Solid
When it comes to products, I'm fairly biased and am not scared to admit it. I like Titleist above all other products, mainly because I think the performance clubs fit my game better and because I'm a little traditionalist in the golf course. I have played the Tour Balata, the Professional, the Tour Prestige and now I'm a Pro-V1x guy through and through.
That is why, two days ago, I picked up one of the new 909 D2 drivers by Titleist. Since I'm left-handed, they only had it in a stock shaft, so until I have five minutes to drive north to Hot Stix and get a stiffer shaft put in, this is what I will deal with.
Let me tell you, the new drivers are incredible. I basically was hitting a long, soft fade with the driver all day until I needed the left-to-right draw, which the club can produce. I thought the weight was spot-on, the head was large but not too big and the feel of it was what I was hoping for.
Anyway, it's Sunday with no real golf to speak of, so I thought it was worth noting that the new Titleist stuff is great.
