    I've been hitting the Nike real well lately so this was a good time to hit this one. I was pleasantly surprised. I have never hit the ball longer or in the "center" of the fairways like this club. I believe I know why.

    The shaft is 45" instead of the 45-3/4 to 46" length on most other drivers. Looking at the face contact I was dead center on the sweet spot on most every drive. I hit it as long as my old Cally Alpha 815 which was on average 10 yards longer then my Nike. I also think the slightly heavier shaft in the 915 helped me control things better. The shaft in this feels awesome.

    In any case this will be in the bag now as long as I'm sure the honeymoon is over and it's still behaving.

    You always read where Titleist drivers don't get the distance of TM or Callaway. That is total BS. Now I know why Jordan Spieth still is hitting this driver this year and not the new 917.

    Shorter driver shafts are always one of the biggest overlooked aspects for driving accuracy. I have always hit 44" drivers for that reason. You may gave up a few yards compared to a well struck drive with a longer shaft, but I would be willing to bet you are going to have more center face strikes with a shorter length driver and your total driving distance will be better over a round of golf.

    Loving this 915. Hitting distances I haven't played from in a long time. This doesn't just put you in the fairway. It puts you in the CENTER of the fairway. It's unreal.

    Shot 80 today. Had some drives (in the fairway!) out to 265 and even one out to 280! Love this thing! I probably averaged 240 yards per drive today. Rare but I'll take it.

    Honeymoon still going strong with this. Pretty sure it's a "keeper". Especially when I check the mad money in my wallet.

    Almost a year later and I'm still loving this thing. Only driver I'll ever get besides this is a 917 D3. When the new 919's come out.

    I play the 915d3 and love it! I have a high launch low spin matrix shaft on mine and I have never hit another driver better (or longer)....and I ain't getting any younger

    Next one is going to be the 917 D3. Low spin sounds good.

    Well, sorry old buddy but you just got smoked by the Cobra King LTD. Hard to believe but it's longer, feels better and more forgiving. But I'm keeping you just in case.
