WE SAY: Simon’s used a 917 F2 since its launch and seen some real dis­tance and for­give­ness gains over his pre­vi­ous fair­way. But as much as our testers liked the 917, and even though it was very easy to launch off the deck, we can’t hide the fact that it’s the most ex­pen­sive fair­way we tested. So it’s only fair to ex­pect the F2 to pro­duce some im­pres­sive num­bers to jus­tify the price tag. It car­ried shots five yards fur­ther than the av­er­age, but an av­er­age of seven yards less carry than the long­est on test means it’s not quite top of the pile.

VER­DICT: As you’d ex­pect a very solid club. It’s re­ally sim­ple and un­fussy, which slightly bet­ter golfers of­ten pre­fer. If you’re go­ing to pay this much for a fair­way make sure you get prop­erly fit­ted, Titleist of­fer an ex­cel­lent shaft choice at no ex­tra cost.
