Titleist Introduces New 915 Drivers: Distance Without Compromise
New Active Recoil Channel™, Radial Speed Face and High-MOI Design Deliver Lower Spin and Higher Speed with Exceptional Forgiveness



New Titleist 915 drivers, built for distance without compromise, are designed using patented Active Recoil Channel™ technology to produce lower spin and higher speed for more distance – without sacrificing forgiveness.

Available in golf shops worldwide beginning Nov. 14, new Titleist 915D2 and 915D3 drivers benefit serious golfers of all swing speeds by delivering maximum distance while maintaining a high MOI for exceptional forgiveness. The improved performance of Titleist 915 drivers, underlining the Titleist Golf Club R&D team’s driver design strategy of “distance and forgiveness,” is the result of three key advancements:

• The proprietary Active Recoil Channel, a long, wide and deep sole channel that actively flexes at impact and recoils to launch the ball off the face with higher speed and lower spin;

Radial Speed Face, a high-speed forged face insert with a radially thinner perimeter in the heel and toe, which works with the Active Recoil Channel to increase ball speed on off-center hits; and

• A precise, high-MOI design with a low and deep center of gravity location that delivers stability and forgiveness by preserving off-center ball speed for more distance, more often.



Those technologies, combined with the fitting precision of Titleist’s industry-leading SureFit Tour hosel and tour-validated looks, sound and feel, make for the most complete, consistent driver performance in the game.

The 915D2 driver is a 460cc full-pear shaped head designed for maximum forgiveness and a slight draw bias. The 915D3 features a 440cc pear shape that is forgiving and workable, and offers 250rpm less spin than 915D2 to produce a lower peak trajectory. Both models launch similar to their previous generation Titleist 913 models.

LOWER SPIN, HIGHER SPEED THROUGH NEW ACTIVE RECOIL CHANNEL:
The new Active Recoil Channel – a long, wide, deep channel, positioned along the sole of the club head, close to the leading edge – delivers more distance by actively flexing at impact to launch the ball with lower spin and higher speed.



The Active Recoil Channel (ARC™) allows the entire clubface, both crown and sole, to deflect at impact for high speed. (Clubs without ARC technology have a more rigid sole and deflect mostly in the face and crown at impact resulting in less speed and higher spin.)

The effectiveness of the Active Recoil Channel is maximized by its efficient, proprietary construction. Relative to competitive drivers with slot technology, ARC is wider, deeper and longer, stretching across the entire sole from heel to toe.

INCREASED BALL SPEED THROUGH RADIAL SPEED FACE:
Working in combination with the Active Recoil Channel, the Radial Speed Face insert increases ball speed on off-center hits for more distance and more consistent speeds across the clubface.



The high-speed, variable thickness face insert has a central thick portion, but is thinner and organically tapered as you move out from center. During the development of 915, Titleist R&D identified specific areas on the face insert, particularly in the heel and toe, which could be thinned further to increase performance on off-center hits.

HIGH MOI DESIGN FOR DISTANCE AND FORGIVENESS:
Distance gains from the Active Recoil Channel and Radial Speed Face are preserved by the 915’s precise, high-MOI design.



With 915 drivers, Titleist R&D targeted a low and deep center of gravity (CG) position in order to maintain stability and forgiveness. The new Active Recoil Channel construction, however, added mass low and forward in the sole – which, in general, is counter to maintaining inertia and a low and deep CG.

To help offset that weight, Titleist engineers cast the 915’s ultra-thin crown and body from 8-1-1 titanium, which provides the same resiliency and properties as the 6-4 titanium used in prior generation 913 models but has a lighter density. (At 0.5 mm, it is also the thinnest consistent crown thickness in the industry.) R&D saved additional weight by tapering the top line and leading edge, and adding thin pockets in areas of low stress toward the front of the head. All these measures create discretionary mass, which was redistributed low and deep resulting in an ideal CG location and high MOI.


INDUSTRY-LEADING ADJUSTABILITY WITH SUREFIT TOUR HOSEL:
The distance potential and complete performance of Titleist 915 drivers can be further refined through precision fitting using Titleist’s patented, industry-leading SureFit Tour adjustable hosel technology.

The dual-angle SureFit Tour hosel, inspired by the customization previously available only on a tour van, allows golfers to set loft and lie independently to optimize ball flight – higher or lower, and for more draw or fade for improved shot control and maximum distance

The SureFit Tour hosel features a sleeve and ring, each with four settings. The sleeve settings are numbered 1, 2, 3, 4 and the ring settings are lettered A, B, C, D. In total there are 16 settings, each creating a unique loft and lie combination.

Titleist authorized fitter will utilize the SureFit Tour hosel, coupled with interchangeable shafts and SureFit Tour weights, to determine a player’s optimal setup so they are playing a 915 driver fit precisely to their game.

The Titleist 915 driver hosel is compatible with 913 and 910 model shafts.




915D2 vs. 915D3: The 915D2 and 915D3 models are designed to provide distinct performance differences, particularly in spin and flight, for greater fitting flexibility.

The 915D2 driver features a larger (460cc), full pear profile for maximum distance and forgiveness. 915D2 produces a higher peak trajectory with 250rpm more spin than 915D3.

The 915D2 profile has been slightly elongated to help maintain inertia and a deep CG, resulting in increased stability with more dynamic face closure for a slight draw bias.

Workable and forgiving, the 915D3 offers a smaller (440cc) deep face pear profile that delivers distance with trajectory control. A result of tour feedback, the 915D3 has a 3mm deeper face than the prior generation, and delivers 250rpm less spin than 915D2. 915D3 produces a lower flight with no draw bias for tour-inspired workability.

915D2 is available in 7.5º, 8.5º, 9.5º, 10.5º and 12º lofts. 915D3 is available in 7.5º, 8.5º, 9.5º, and 10.5º. (7.5º lofts are RH only and available through custom.)


TOUR-PROVEN STOCK SHAFT MATRIX:
The 915’s high-performance stock shaft matrix features five new aftermarket options from the most played driver shaft families on the PGA Tour to fit a wide range of players and swing speeds.

The stock lineup includes the Fujikura Speeder 652 (mid launch) and the Mitsubishi Diamana D+ White 70 (low launch), Mitsubishi Diamana S+ Blue 60 (mid launch), Mitsubishi Diamana M+ Red 50 (high launch) and Mitsubishi Diamana M+ Red 40 (high launch).

In addition, Titleist offers an industry-leading number of custom shaft choices.


PLAYER BENEFITS:
LONGER DISTANCE through low spin and high speed from the Active Recoil Channel™.
HIGHER SPEED on off-center hits from the Radial Speed Face.
LOWER SPIN across the face improves distance and direction on off-center hits.
EXCEPTIONAL FORGIVENESS from the stable, low and deep CG, High MOI Design.
PRECISION FIT through our industry leading SureFit® Tour Hosel technology.
PREMIUM SHAFTS provide high performance options to maximize your speed and timing.
