Titleist 907D1 Golf Club Review
New Titleist Driver for 2020!
Reports from golfers who have gone to the new square drivers this season have been very favorable of course, but there is one constant that is always mentions. They don't go as far as the driver they were hitting before? The main reason behind this is the fact that they are designed first and foremost to hit the ball straight. The trade off may only be 10 yards or so, and you would think that the average player would most definitely benefit from hitting more fairways, but we live in a John Daly, Bubba Watson world where it does not matter if you lose 10 balls a round, so long as you are hitting the cover off the ball!
The new Titleist 907D1 was designed to be more forgiving, yet longer at the same time. The triangular design sweeps back and away from the ball which helps the golfers to take the ball back a little inside rather than outside creating the huge over the top slices most armatures fight with. It also moves the center of gravity back and lower in the club head which produces the high launch, low spin ball flight that will maximize the distance of todays golf balls.
The D1 features a rugged 6-4 Titanium body, and keeping tradition with past Titleist drivers, a SP700 Beat Titanium face insert for more distance. The basic bore-through design is still used in the new driver which adds stability to the club head with its longer shafting depth. The club feels very solid at impact, very responsive also but there is little in the way of working the ball with this club unless you like hitting hooks! This is definitely Titleist's driver for the average player and can be shafted in a multiple of flexes and weights.
I would suggest this driver for the average player, or those fighting a bit of a slicing problem. The one hangup that I still get with Titleist is that while this is a longer driver than previous models for the company, they still do not match up in raw distance like Cobra or Taylor Made. The club looks good for the shape it has, feels solid and flies well, it just needs to go a little further in my opinion! The face insert is also not a very good technological advancement since they have been using this for years now. Most companies are using a "cup-face" which makes the entire face area a separate weld to the body for more explosiveness on all areas of the face and not just the center.
I would give one a try on the range and decide for yourself, it is definitely worth a try now that Titleist has an actual game improvement driver!
