Spotted: Titleist’s new 917F2 and 917F3 fairway woods

Published

on

We first caught a glimpse of Titleist’s 917 fairway woods when Jimmy Walker posted this video on Instagram. Now, we have in-hand photos of the clubs that were onsite at the 2016 John Deere Classic on Monday.

Titleist has yet to officially comment on the new equipment, but there are a few things we can safely assume from our photos.

  • The 917 fairway woods will use Titleist’s new SureFit CG weighting system, which appears similar to the system used in Titleist’s new 917 drivers. They will be the first adjustable-CG fairway woods in Titleist history, and likely offer golfers the ability to control draw and fade bias of the clubs.
  • Like the 915 fairway woods, 917 models use an “Active Recoil Channel,” which appears to have been redesigned. The channel helps improve ball speed and forgiveness, while increasing launch angle and lowering spin rate.
  • The 917 fairway woods use a new model naming system. Instead of the familiar F and Fd models, 917 fairway woods will be released in F2 and F3 models.

Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks, but for now, enjoy our exclusive photos of the products.

    Nothing they make will ever compel me to take my 1 iron out of my bag. But if I did game a fwy wood this one would be it. Or maybe a tour edge exotics.

      My alignment sticks get more course time than your 1 iron.

    This fairway wood makes me wonder why Titleist didn’t move the Active Recoil Channel more forward on the 917 driver, which is basically is a 915 driver with Surefit CG.

    I am glad they managed to cover the recoil grove since it has been a pain to clean it in the 915 models. Not sure what I should think of the screw but soon you forget about it when you take it out of the bag. Also wondering about the grey ish finish – prefare the darker tone of previous lines (910-915). Hope they come up with smaller head shape in the hybrid line though – the 916 still is too big.

      You mean 816. Which is why the 917 are also grey

    The sole reminds me of an exercise logo from the Jack LaLane European Health Spa days!! I know I know, everybody under the age of 49 is clueless……..Jack who??

    The 915F was enticing enough to consider moving from the 913F. I’m not sure this one has the same draw.

    I like the deeper face more rounded sole kind of like my TM R7 HFS. Still playing the R7 HFS, maybe time to upgrade to one of these. Maybe have to give these a good demo.

    Oh my. That looks like a star of David for the CG adjustment screw..

    Boy, the media is going to have a field day with this.

    Couldn’t resist..

    Interesting hot-melt port…

    These look almost Callaway-ish in the shape, more of a rounded look.

    I like them golf clubs. I like to play that golf from time to time.

    It’s actually an old model naming system. I had a 909F3. The D was always confusing. Surprised it hung around as long as it did.

    • Blake

      The d name is still around for drivers. This is replacing f/fd name system

        I think what Concerned Troll is referring to are the F and Fd woods in the past. D in the driver line has always stood for “Driver”. However, d in the fairway wood line refers to a deeper face. I agree having the f2 and f3 makes it easier to understand and more consistent with the 917 driver line.

    Love the grey paint job and the adjustable CG option.

    Very nice,looks like they addressed the issue of cleaning the recoil channel that some had complained about.

  20. Dazza

    They look like they would be hard to keep clean. There is lots of holes and crevices for mud and grass to clog????

    Looks nice. I would bag it
