Titleist 910D2 and 910D3 Drivers

In the last five years, Titleist has had nine of their drivers named to Golf Digest’s Hot List. One of the most popular Titleist model’s released in 2012 was the 910D2 and 910D3. Not only did the 910D2/D3 make the list, but they received the Gold Award and acknowledged as a Category leader.

OK, so what’s this Hot List all about?

Each year, Golf Digest produces their Hot List, which is a preview/review of what they determine to be the best of the upcoming year’s crop of new equipment. (You can find it on golfdigest.com.)

This is not a peer review done by your fellow club members sitting around having a few beers after a Saturday round, mind you. Golf Digest takes the List quite seriously. A group of scientists, retailers, teachers, and Golf Digest’s team of equipment editors—guys who have been writing about equipment for years—review all of the clubs for two weeks at an off-site location.

All judging is based on a 100-point scale:

  • Gold products earned a score of 93 to 100.
  • Silver products earned a score of 88 to 92.99.

Here’s how the judges break it down:

  • Performance: What happens to the ball when it’s hit by the club (45%).
  • Innovation: How the club’s technology advances the category (30%).
  • Look/Feel/Sound: What the golfer experiences before, during, and after impact (20%).
  • Demand: The relative interest in a product and its reputation (5%).

In each club section, the product voted as a category leader in each of the four areas of evaluation (Performance, Innovation, Look/Sound/Feel, Demand) is assigned 100 points.

So back to the 910D2 and 910D3, the two Titliest Drivers that made 2012’s list as Gold Award winners and Look/Sound/Feel Category Leaders.

Both models feature SureFit Tour hosel technology, which delivers independent loft and lie adjustment for the most precise fit available. The SureFit Tour hosel, allows golfers to set loft and lie independently to optimize ball flight—higher or lower, and for more draw or fade for improved shot control and maximum distance.

The SureFit Tour hosel features a sleeve and ring, each with four settings. The sleeve settings are numbered 1, 2, 3, 4 and the ring settings are lettered A, B, C, D. In total there are 16 settings, each creating a unique loft and lie combination. The adjustable hosel system was designed to help players tweak ball flight preferences on their own. Whether you are indecisive of loft/lie combination when making the purchase or prefer to make changes based on the style of course you are playing, The Titleist 910 series is a great option for you, plus you can avoid the expensive club fitting process. The 910 series is available in a large variety of shaft models and flexes, to fit any golfer’s needs from the beginner to the most experienced players.

As for some of the differences between the two models: The D2 features a 460cc full-pear shaped head designed for maximum forgiveness and a slight draw, while the D3 has a 445cc classic-pear shape with a slightly forward center of gravity, slightly lower launch and spin, making it “forgiving with tour-inspired workability.”

The Hot List is very handy, because you can review clubs in a variety of ways: by type of club, by price, and by manufacturer. But as always, the best way to find out if a club, like the 910D2 or 910D3, is right for you is to go out and hit one.
