Titleist Brand Ambassadors Chez Reavie, Parker McLachlin, Zach Johnson, Marc Turnesa and Davis Love III have each won on the PGA Tour with a Titleist 909 driver.
The momentum continues for the new Titleist 909 drivers as more and more Titleist players each week on the PGA Tour are placing their trust in these new clubs, which are due in golf shops in November. At the most recent stop on Tour, the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas, 22 Titleist 909 drivers were put in play, according to Darrell Survey. Of the 909s in play, 16 were 909D2 drivers, making it the most played model in the field. Be sure to check out the list of Titleist 909 players below to see which model is being played by your favorite Titleist Brand Ambassador on the PGA Tour.
Furthering the 909 momentum on Tour is Titleist Brand Ambassador Marc Turnesa's first win at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Marc's win is the fourth with a 909 driver in the past thirteen weeks on Tour. The other winners and their drivers are noted in the list of Titleist 909 players below.
Be sure to learn more about the new 909 drivers by visiting Titleist.com.
Excluding shafts, and allowing for manufacturing tolerances, the 909D2 and 909D3 heads weigh the same.

I hit my 6-iron 185 yards and my driver swing speed is 120mph (carry 280yards). Which driver would be most suitable for me? My ball flight is extremely high, which driver will give me the lowest ball flight with the least backspin (my handicap is 2). Also, do you recommend using a stiff shaft or extra stiff shaft? Thank you.

Hey guys...I purchased the 909D3 as well as the 909F3 and hybrids with the Voodoo shaft. My brother tried my driver and smoked it! I not only had to order another D3 but a 909H 19° as well. Still playing my 983E as well as 735s until my new clubs arrive. Now since you have come down to a 440cc driver, is there a possibility of a 425cc driver in the future? Not into big heads........Jim

Just got my custom fitting for the second time. I love Titleist clubs so much! Got all 909 series woods and they are fantastic and to top it off AP2s. I used to have blades and adored them but I can't stand getting marks on my clubs and the paint on my blades (695MBs) just kept on falling off. The new tour bag 10.5" is awesome, but takes up so much room even in a Range Rover. Love Titleist and always will!

I love Titleist products. I am a 5 HCP and currently hit the 735.CM irons with DG S300. I love everything about these clubs except for the extremely high ball flight. I tried the AP2 with the Project X 6.0 and they lowered my ball flight but they felt way too light. Can I order AP2s with a Project X shaft that is the same swingweight as the DG S300? Also, what are the primary differences between the 735.CMs and ZBs?

First, we'd like to recommend that you visit an <a href="www.fittingworks.com/FindaFitter.aspx" rel="nofollow">Authorized Titleist FittingWorks Partner</a> to be properly fit for a new set of Titleist irons. Our network of professional fitters will be able to fit you into the optimized model and specs for your swing and playing style.
Not knowing the other specs on the two sets of irons (specifically length), it is tough to answer your question about the shaft weights. All other specs being equal, clubs built with either the DG or PX shafts would swingweight about the same. Further, strengthening the lofts on your irons would have a greater impact on trajectory than switching shafts. Again, we recommend working with a fitter to determine what is best in your case.
Primary differences between the ZBs and 735.CMs are the Z back design of the ZBs that locates the center of gravity in the center of the face, less offset in the ZB short irons, and blind bore hosel on the ZBs versus the modified bore-thru on the 735.CMs.
