It’s rare that a club wins a major before it ever hits the shelves. But sure enough, that’s just what the Titleist 917 driver did, courtesy of Jimmy Walker’s impressive 14-under showing at the PGA Championship at Baltusrol.
To be fair, the 917 family was blowing up social media the second spy shots showed some of the world’s best testing it out at Congressional. Jimmy did his part, as did Justin Thomas, who racked up the (current) longest drive of the season with a 417-yard bomb just a few months ago.
And there’s clearly a good reason why golfers–beyond those above–are anxiously chomping at the bit.
The 917 family was built to be fast, courtesy of a new Active Recoil Channel and flexing face, and customizable, with a new SureFit CG system in the sole.
Joining the 16-position adjustable SureFit hosel, this sole-mounted center of gravity tuning design allows golfers to fine-tune the club’s center of gravity. Left, center and right positions are all available, which places the CG ideally for forgiveness, shot-shaping and spin control. An expanded weighting kit means just about club setup is within reach.
