  1. Hello,

    Wondering if anybody has had this experience. I couldn't be more confident hitting my 3 wood and it gives incredible feedback during and after the shot, I mean I really 'feel' the shot. I couldn't fell anymore opposite with the Driver in my hand. Now don't kill me, but my Driver is an M2 9.5º with a HZRDUS Project X 6.0 63g Stiff flex (friend got it at costemployee). The 3 wood is an r9 15º (2009 love the club) with a Motore Fujikura 70g stiff shaft.

    Any thoughts? My feeling is that I need to get to a fitter to see if the shaft just ain't right.

    FYI, all my irons and wedges are Titleist 718 them

    Well D, until you switch over the driver, you will always struggle... :) TS2 or TS3 will cure all.

    D, maybe a lot of golfers wouldn't be consistent enough to know if a club is 'fit' to them. You may be in the other category. Just because it came to you at the employee pricing doesn't mean it fits you. Go to a fitting session (with any manufacturer, but we're Titleist people here) and see what recommendations are made to suit your swing type. Do a driver and a fairway fitting. It's not uncommon to have a different shaft in the driver and fairway, either. It comes down to what works, not what looks pretty, what costs less, what your buddies play, etc. Good luck!
  4. A lot of the guys at the range love their R9, much more than their m3 or m4. I see it quite a few bags and everyone says its just a pleasure to hit. If you want serious feedback from a driver though, try the 917, as I was hitting the F3 and D2 during a Titleist Thursday (free fitting btw) and they were amazing. Try looking up a Titleist Thursday, you have nothing to lose and so many yards to gain!

    Besides my personal observation that TM metalwoods that I've played with at golf shows for the last 5 years feel dead to me, when I'm in the sweet spot on my 917 D2, the feel is awesome. Back to your issue - it sounds like you weren't fit for the M2. Titleist offers hundreds of shafts when you count all the weights and flex options - for a reason. No 2 golfers are alike. This is the Titleist fanatics site, so my recommendation is to consider getting fit at a Titleist Thursday or a Premier Fitting Center (find them above) now (917) or September (TS2/3). But all golfers benefit from having a qualified fitter get the right shaft/head combination.
  6. Could be the shaft. Likely tho is the club. Newer model Taylor made drivers are not great for feel, and will not come close to an older model 3 wood just based on the size and structure.

    The large face and COR of the modern driver vs the smaller and heavier older 3 wood are no comparison feel wise.

    You could change the shaft to a 70g speeder to achieve a better feel. I can't imagine it being the same as your 3 wood
  7. I hit all the hzrdus shaft cirrentky have it in my rouge. I assume it a black or yellow prob not a hand crafter but the are still low launch high touque. I jacked the lift on my driver to 12.5 with low launch spin hazdus try it
