Titleist really gets the old line about different strokes for different folks. Its hot
new driver family includes three distinct models, the 909 D2, 909 DComp and
909 D3. Each stick has a milled trapezoid face insert—thickest in the middle,
thinner around the perimeter—to maximize ball speed across more of the face.
A blind-bore hosel combines with small, stiff ridges inside the head to promote
crisp acoustics and feel. Yet the heads differ in shape, construction and, ultimately,
performance (see chart). The idea is to provide suitable options for various swing
types and desired ball flights. You can be fit for 909 drivers through the company’s
SureFit adjustable fitting system (includes seven driver heads and 16 shafts).
