Titleist ventured down a road they don’t often travel with the Titleist 915 D2 driver. You can always count on a clean, classic, and traditional look from Titleist, but you can’t deny technology so they’ve found a way to keep up with the times but still keep the classic look they’re known for.
The Titleist 915 D2 driver features an Active Recoil Channel on the sole. It’s a wide sole channel that delivers more distance by actively flexing at impact. This flexing motion launches the golf ball off the face with higher ball speeds and lower spin rates, creating a long driving machine. A deeper dive into this ARC technology shows that clubs without it actually have a rigid sole and deflect more in the crown at impact, which leads to higher spin. So the addition of the ARC creates active deflection in the crown and sole at impact.
The 915 D2 driver also features a Radial Speed Face. This is a very high speed face insert, with a thick center and radially thin perimeter towards the heel and toe portions of the face. This design delivers more distance on off-center hits.
The reduced thickness in the face frees up weight in the clubhead design that has been strategically placed in the back of the clubhead. By re-positioning weight in the rear it results in a low and deep center of gravity that produces one of the most forgiving drivers on the market.
