Titleist 917F2 Fairway Wood
The new 917 series is coming! If you like the previous 915 series, then you will surely love the new 917! The 16-position adjustable SureFit hosel, which allows golfers or fitters to change the club’s playing loft and lie angle independently, has not changed, but Titleist made the walls in the Active Recoil Channel thinner. Stephanie Luttrell, Titleist’s director of metalwood development, said this allows the face to flex more easily at impact, which should result in more ball speed, especially on shots hit low on the face. It also helps reduce spin.
The channel in the Titleist 917 fairway woods was given an elastomer cover, so dirt and debris cannot get trapped in the channel. It also helps the club skim across the turf and through the rough. The variable-thickness face is thicker in the center and thinner around the edges to broaden the sweetspot and help shots maintain ball speed when impact is outside the center of the face. The most unique feature of the 917 fairway woods is SureFit CG.
