The latest technology innovation presented by Titleist is incorporated in the 915. The new Active Recoil Channel is a trademark with radial speed face and high MOI design that delivers low spin and higher speed with exceptional forgiveness.
New titleist 915 drivers, built for distance without compromise, are designed using patented Active Recoil.
Available in golf shops worldwide beginning November 14, 2014, the new Titleist 915D2 and 915D3 drivers benefit serious golfers of all swing speeds by delivering maximum distance while maintaining a high MOI for exeptional 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 :
#1 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;
#2 An Ultra Thin Face, a high-strength, uniformly thin high-speed face insert that increases ball speed across the face, and
#3 A precise, high MOI design with a low center of gravity (CG) location that delivers stability and forgiveness by preserving ball speed across the face 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 metals performancce in the game.
“The new 915 fairways and hybrids really bring us to another level from a distance perspective”, says Dan Stone, Vice President for Research and Development, Titleist Golf Clubs. “The combination of the Active Recoil Channel and Ultra Thin Face is powerful in creating more speed with spin reduction for maximum distance and forgiveness”.
Titleist R&D designed 915 fairways and hybrids to maximize their low-spin, high-speed potential, with the SureFit Tour weight placed in a low, central position behind the Active Recoil Channel on each model to help create ideal CG properties. Golfers can select their models – 915F or 915Fd, 915H or 915Hd – based on head shape, forgiveness or ball flight. 915F and 915H feature larger profiles for all-around performance with maximum forgiveness while the 915Fd and 915Hd offer smaller head shapes for workability and forgiveness, with slightly lower launch and spin and therefore lower flight than F and H.
The first week they were available on the PGA Tour, 15 new 915 fairway metals and nine new 915 hybrids were put in play at the World Golf Championships event at Firestone. The following week at the PGA Championship, there were 29 new fairways and 13 new 915 hybrids in players’ bags, including Jordan Spieth, Bill Haas, Victor Dubuisson, Jason Dufner and Webb Simpson.
“The new 915 fairways and hybrids, just like our new 915 drivers, really exemplify our R&D team’s design strategy of Distance without Forgiveness”, said Steve Pelisek, General Manager, Titleist Golf Clubs. “And from our player testing on tour and with amateurs, we know that these products are longer, more consistent and more playable than ever”.
