The quest for the perfect club continues, this time with the Titleist 915 D2 driver.
I’ve always loved the look of Titleist drivers, at least since the launch of the 910 series dating back to 2010. Their predecessors, the 905, 907 and the 909 were all pretty average looking, with the exception of the 905. The black club head has always given it a sleek, sexy and sophisticated look.
Before testing the 915 D2 at the 2015 New Jersey Golf Show, I read a lot of reviews about Titleist’s latest offering. There definitely seemed to be a palpable buzz surrounding the club – some reviews calling it Titleist’s best driver yet.
So here we go…
The reviews I read prior to testing the club were pretty spot on in one regard – the sound, feel and amount of forgiveness are awesome. I didn’t hit every shot well (nor would I considering my game is mediocre at best), but I was pleased at how solid a few of my hits were.
What makes the Titleist 915 series really unique is the amount of customizable features it has to offer. The 915 D2 is available in lofts of 7.5, 8.5, 9.5 10.5 and 12 degrees. The 915 D3 comes in lofts of 7.5, 8.5, 9.5 and 10.5 degrees. The variety allows golfers to dial in nearly any loft, lie and face angle combination they desire, which is really important.
The driver even has a whopping five shaft options. They include Aldila’s new Rogue Black and Silver shafts, as well as Mitsubishi Rayon’s new Diamana D+, S+ M+. Now, I don’t know the subtle differences between all those shafts without doing my research, but the fact that so many options are available means if I went to get a fitting, I would definitely be able to find the perfect option for me.
These clubs are currently available for purchase. At $449.99, that is a little steep though. But because the driver is so customizable, looks and feels great, I might consider it down the road. According to a Titleist R&D guy I met at the 2015 PGA Show in January, the D2 is a great option for everyone, while the D3 is more for advanced players who don’t need as much spin.
Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5
