On Tuesday I finally got out to the golf course to actually play a full 18 holes and I have to say I am extremely impressed with the new 917 driver/shaft combination I purchased. Chris Welton at the Titleist National Fitting Centre did my fitting last fall and I did get the club just before the season ended, but in fairness I forgot how well the fitting went. I did have a 913 D2 and was looking for a little more consistency and a few more yards (hey - who isn't). Chris obviously outdid himself in finding the right shaft to fit my new 917D2 as I found I was back to driving it as far as I did in my early 50's. It was awesome. The best part is that I went back out on Wednesday and managed to repeat the experience :)
Thank you Chris and the team at the National Fitting Centre over at Eagles Nest !!!
I am still working on a few swing tweaks to get out the winter rust in order to get the most out of my new AP3's but in general they are an awesome feeling club. The sad thing is that I have developed a bit of a sh%$k with the wedges when trying to hit those 30 and 5o yard shots. Definitely a few trips to the practice facility will be in order to iron those out ! I will gladly accept any tips from those who have had that struggle and found a cure !
