A few weeks ago, we started a thread with a few questions for GolfWRX Members from Southern California who were using Titleist 915 drivers. The response was tremendous, and led to the incredible event we're having today.<br />
<br />
From that thread, we selected six GolfWRX Members who told us they are currently using a Titleist 915 driver. Today, they will arrive at Titleist's TPI Oceanside (California) test facility with their gamer, where many of Titleist's PGA Tour Brand Ambassadors are fit for their clubs. Titleist's PGA Tour fitters will do their best to help the lucky six add distance to their drives with either Titleist's 917D2 or 917D3.<br />
<br />
A fitting doesn't get much more premium than what's these six GolfWRXers are going today. They'll hit real golf balls (either Pro V1 or Pro V1X, depending on their preference) on Trackman at Titleist's world-renowned practice facility, and will have at their disposal Titleist's enormous custom shaft inventory. They'll geek out about shaft lengths, weight settings, swing weight, face angles, lie angles and dial in lofts perfectly.<br />
<br />
Congrats to the winners; I can't wait to meet you today shivasi, KPH808, MB Dirtyy, LuckyLowbrow, pitchinwedge and brushie.<br />
<br />
I will be updating this thread with updates and photos, and so will the lucky six, who will take the lead in this discussion to share what they learned, what the experience was like and what you need to know about the 917 drivers. <br />
<br />
Ask us anything!

    A big thank you to Golfwrx, Zak, Titleist, and all the staff at TPI for this great experience. I wasn't able to take any pics during the fitting but only a couple as I drove through the gates towards the facility.<br />
    <br />
    I started the day at IHOP since I was 50 min early for my fitting (can't predict California traffic) so I decided to grab some breakfast. They told me if I posted this pic and gave them a shout out on Golfwrx that they hook me up with the Rooty Tooty Fresh N Fruity breakfast for the rest of my life. JK.<br />
    <br />
    Old Setup<br />
    915 D4 8.5* A1 setting with Tour AD BB 7x - 44 3/4" D5 swingweight<br />
    <br />
    New Setup<br />
    917 D3 8.5* B2 setting with Tour AD BB 7x or PX Hzrdus Black 75 6.5 both at 44 3/4" D5 swingweight<br />

    Congratulations guys! This will be an awesome experience for all those attending. My goal is to one day vacation down to TPI and have a full-bag fitting. <br />
    <br />
    I do have a question. Is there any chance the 915D4 (if it's not already in the mix) can be compared head-to-head with a 917D3? <br />
    <br />
    Thanks!

    Can't wait to hear your impressions of the 917 driver and the multitude of shaft options. I still game the 910, but hit the 917 recently and may have found the driver that takes the 910 out of the bag.

    Are those blank shafts? If they are, thats a great idea so you have no bias toward what you choose.
