It is the week of the Quicken Loans National on the PGA TOUR which means one key thing for golf equipment fans – the arrival of Titleist prototypes.

This year that means the arrival of 917 drivers for their staff players. The 917 drivers, both the D2 and D3 models, appeared on the United States Golf Association Conforming Equipment List today, June 20.

Sources say there will be fourth quarter consumer market launch of the new drivers and fairway woods.

Titleist Canada has indicated they will have select images of the product posted to Titleist.ca/917 shortly.

The USGA photos and information show both the 917 D2 and D3 being offered in left and right hand.

Lofts approved so far are: 917D2 RH (8.5,9.5,10.5,12), 917D2 LH (8.5,9.5,10.5,12), 917D3 RH (8.5,9.5,10.5) and 917D3 LH (8.5, 9.5)

The driver head appears to feature an Active Recoil Channel, a dark finish head with triangular alignment, and, most notably, a new Sure-Fit fitting for heel to toe centre of gravity placement.
