I put my new 917D3 9.5 degree with RIP a 74g shaft into play yesterday and was quite impressed with the results. I generally like to have the new clubs on the day they came out but it took me a while to convince myself to come over to the 917 from the 915 because I liked the 915D3 so much. I finally broke down and ordered one to put into the bag (as well as a 917F3 15 degree with a Proforce V2 76g shaft).
Well, my round yesterday had pretty impressive results. I was going through the round in my head today and was thinking of how many holes where I only used my driver, 60 degree wedge and putter on the hole. To have so many great drives in a round I was surprised when I went back and thought about it. Some of the better driving holes that come to mind were:
#1 400 yards, 70 to the pin after my drive.
#9 361 yards, 65 to the pin after my drive (only drive in the rough).
#10 326 yards, drove the green off the tee.
#12 383 yards, 60 to the pin after my drive.
#15 390 yards, 65 to the pin after my drive.
#18 373 yards, 55 to the pin after my drive.
After a driving round like this I am sure glad I made the switch. Hopefully the "new club magic" has not worn off yet and I will have similar results today! Thanks for a great club!

Those are some pretty impressive stats! Did you get fitted for them? And were the shafts upgrades?
