Titleist has launched three new drivers the Titleist 909D Comp, Titleist 909 D2 and Titleist 909 D3 to attract the attention of a broad spectrum of golfers with different swing characteristics.
The Titliest 909D Comp has a classic pear-shaped head with a graphite crown married into the titanium head. This enables weight to be moved lower and further back in the head to enhance launch conditions for slower swing speeds.
The Titleist 909 D2 and Titleist 909 D3 also feature classic Titleist shapes. The D2 has a shallower face and is weighted to deliver a medium launch angle with low-to-medium spin rates. The Titleist 909 D3 has a smaller, 440cc head that should help improve playability.
Alongside the Titleist 909 drivers, they are also launching Titleist 909 fairway woods and hybrids. These will soon be featured both online and in print.
In his current role, Neil is responsible for testing drivers and golf balls. Having been a part of the Golf Monthly team for over 15 years and playing off a handicap of 3, he has the experience to compare performance between models, brands and generations. For 2022 he thinks the main trend in drivers is: "In a word, consistency. Whilst all the brands are talking about ball speed (and the new drivers are certainly long), my biggest finding has been how much more consistent the ball flights are. Mishits don't seem to be causing the same level of drop-off or increase in the spin numbers. This means that more shots seem to be flying the way you want them to!" As far as golf balls are concerned the biggest development is in the, "three piece, non-Tour, urethane-covered section. For regular golfers, these models offer superb performance at both ends of the bag without denting your wallet quite as much as the premium Tour-played options."
Originally working with the best coaches in the UK to produce instruction content, he is now the brand's Digital Editor and covers everything from Tour player interviews to gear reviews. In his time at Golf Monthly, he has covered equipment launches that date back well over a decade. He clearly remembers the launch of the Callaway and Nike square drivers as well as the white TaylorMade driver families, such as the RocketBallz! If you take a look at the Golf Monthly YouTube channel, you'll see his equipment videos dating back over a decade! He has also conducted 'What's In The Bag' interviews with many of the game's best players like Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm. Over the years, Neil has tested a vast array of products in each category and at drastically different price-points.
Neil is currently playing: Driver: TaylorMade Stealth Plus Fairway Wood: Titleist TSi2 Hybrid: Titleist TS3 Irons (4-9): Mizuno JPX 919 Forged Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM7 46˚, 50˚, 54˚, 60˚ Putter: Odyssey Triple Track Ten Ball: Titleist Pro V1X
