Titleist is too loud for my taste so mine lays un-used.

Christian V Petersen says:

So if strike is king – what features on a club would help my strike, if
any?

davefiver says:

Loving the look of the Mizuno but the sound of the Titleist. Maybe they
should mate and have a sexy looking club baby :D

Coochicoo says:

Anyone know what the framed YouTube thing is on the wall in the background?

Matt Vernot says:

I personally can’t wait to hit the Mizuno. Really looking forward to it! I
don’t think that it is released in the states until February. But that blue
is stunning!

knightym06 says:

is the titleist not performing slightly better? the mishits seemed to
travel further than with the mizuno?

the thing is with these clubs is that the spring off the face is regulated
therefore if you apply all the same numbers the ball should go almost the
same distance. a better judge surely is how far your worst struck shots
go? 

hbyrdut says:

Mark, what was different from the time you hit the D2 and D3 with the
titliest rep? I believe you averaged 269 with the D3 and 279 with the D2.
For this video you averaged 260.

theMANxGOLFER says:

I was disappointed in the sound of the Titleist. Mizuno doesn’t come in
left handed, but as you pointed out has a similar sound (a little quieter).
Looks like striking the ball a little more on the toe side of the Titleist
had the ball going more right of target. Fade side shots also seem to
increase spin a little. Most of the drivers in 2015 seem to be louder in
general, however, the Nike Flex is gaining popularity because of its
quieter sound profile. Can’t wait for your review on that club to see if
you agree that it feels better than others that were released in the winter
spring offseason.

Nic Rep says:

Only 258 carry with the D3? In the video where you tested both the D2 and
D3 you carried the D3 269 on average. 

Lee (formerly Cahnt) says:

Thanks Mark, your demonstration of how mm changes in strike affects spin
data is very enpowering for the golfer in the market for a driver. Thanks
for sharing.

itubeutude says:

Makes these reviews somewhat pointless if drivers are all the same. You may
as well just review the look, hit one shot for sound and you’re done. Don’t
bother doing numbers.

TheJhaley12 says:

Again go to the local course, grab two guys off the street and let them try
these clubs. We always only see PGA teaching pro’s demoing these clubs, let
“real” people find out for themselves then I’m more apt to believe all the
hype they’re all putting behind their products. Now Titleist has copied
TaylorMade with the speed channel. Next? who knows, has to be the shaft
they’re running of out of things they can claim.

Andrew Clemans says:

I’m buying into the fact that all the major manufacturers’ drivers or even
irons will all perform pretty much exactly the same way and it just comes
down to brand loyalty and aesthetics, but what about comparing up a “no
name” brand or smaller manufacturer to one of the big boys? Will that
really make a difference to performance or just to build quality,
longevity, or how you feel about your kit because it’s top of the line?

Andrew Grant says:

Hi mark, was wondering if you could offer some advice. Looking at upgrading
my now broken mizuno Mp001 driver. I’ve a soft spot, like yourself, for the
Mizuno brand and find the new Mizuno driver very attractive. However, I
have recently cut my handicap from 17 to 5 (started to take the game
seriously) and don’t want to invest in a driver I will want to change
because I can’t hit it or it doesn’t offer any advantage. I don’t have the
opportunity to get anything else fitted other than the mizuno. I was
wondering from your experience, has any of the titleist or taylormade
drivers excited you (D3 915 and R15) or has the extra changeability and
attractive looks in the JPX850 done enough to win you over? I have tried
the above drivers at *cough* american golf just to get a feel however I
don’t agree with the computer system they are using (telling me their on
sale sldr is going 50 yards further than the titleist D3 915) is there any
other steps I can take to trying the drivers out with more reliable data
other than buying them all and taking them on the course? Sorry for the
essay and thanks for your inspiration and insight into this wonderful sport
and creating a social side that has been missing for the last 10 years.
Cheers 

ajmobeel says:

Why dont you just be honest and say mizuno are your backers. 915 is by far
the better club

David Garcia says:

Hi Mark, I love your videos, keep up the good work! I am intrigued on
whether you will be able to match SLDR sneaky long drives on the course
with the Mizuno. I am aware of the similarity of the stats when testing all
these drivers, and I have in mind the tolerances the manufactures are
limited with… My point is that I never saw you hitting many “sneaky long”
drives with the Covert but I’ve seen you outdriving everyone drive in and
out with the SLDR. Will you be able to do so with the Mizunos, Titleists
and Pings??

bonobobananas says:

Very good review, thanks Mark: Just a quick question. What shafts were
used, what length of shaft? Same in both?

LozKnutsen says:

What I take from this video is the importance of hitting the middle of the
face. If a good player like Mark can lose 10 – 15 yds by being a few mm
away from the optimum position on the face, it seems to me that the
manufacturers need to work on getting good numbers across a much bigger
area. Most players who claim a club doesn’t suit them (too spinny) probably
never find the actual sweetspot. I remember an old Seve instructional video
where he specifically showed how to find the sweetspot on his old Anser
putter, which was closer to the heel than most people thought. Why don’t
manufacturers put an obvious mark so we don’t have to guess. I bet the
optimum for most drivers isn’t where we think it is. 

Cory Delgado says:

Your carry distance was 20yds (?) Longer with the Double Black Diamond. Was
your striking better with the Bertha or did it simply out perform these two
in distance?

jason huggett says:

A lot lower dispersion number with the titleist was that better strikes or
something on the club

GrandmasterN says:

By the way Mark. I did some simple math, on the relationship between your
“slowest” ball speed drive 148 mph and the carry of 268 (mizuno). Its 1,81.
Thats absolutly bombing it. Thats better that some most PGA tour pros. You
are hitting the absolut center of the sweetspot. Well done. Now imagine
that relationship between ball speed and carry and think Tiger swing speed.
If he was as good a driver as you he could carry the ball… let see. 325
yards on a 120 mph swing.

To compare, the Titleist gave you a best relationship between carry and
ballspeed of 1.77. Since you are not showing club head speed, which I would
like we cannot see how effecient yout are hitting the ball. My predictions
are that you are maxing out at 1.5 possibly even 1.51 in smash factor on
some of these hits.

Dave Bucks says:

would really love to see a video on budget drivers like MD etc compared to
more expensive drivers if possible please ?

John Clausen says:

As stunning as the 915 is, I hit it in a PGA store, and it didn’t feel all
that great. I went back to back with it and my 913 (in the same setting and
similar shaft and whatnot) and I was not only carrying the 913 10 yards
further, but it also just felt much better and more boomy. 

Daryl Burney says:

Yes they are all similar distance and spin but maybe the focus of the vids
could turn to forgiveness, being that most of us are amateurs.
Eg. As you said at the end, dispersion was the greatest difference. Could
that be because miss hits on one has less effect than on the other and
maybe the same applies for spin and distance?
Love your Vlogs!!!!



David Price says:

Would love to see a r15 vs 915d2

metamurph says:

I like this, telling it like it is. Want a great driver, your an average
handicapper…go buy “last year’s model” kind of like buying last year’s
car, it will get you where you need. Now if you “need” the latest in golf
gear and are happy popping out $300 plus a year …Taylormade has a program
for you 🙂 … that might be the mental edge that drives your game. What
I find interesting and you see more of now is that pros are using often the
“game improvement” clubs, not always the traditional “scratch golfer”
setups.

Alex Gourki says:

This is what I found when I tested 915 D3 D2 SLDR and G30 and my previous
gamer 913 D2. Good hits all go roughly the same distance within 2-3 yards
of each other.
However off centre hits that’s when I noticed G30 and 915 D2 Outperformed
the rest and were going about 5 -8 yards longer than D3 and SLDR. Longest I
hit was with the D3 over SLDR by 1 yard but SLDR was the shortest by 4
yards over the D3.
Test was on the same day with all 4 clubs and 15 shots were taken with each
club.
They are all good clubs and each and every one of them can be played by
anyone. 

Mrleighwhite says:

Wish mark would stop saying “gaming”.

rosenlefty12 says:

what mark is trying to say is that with regulations now a days club
manufactures are extremely restricted to changes they can actually make on
their clubs. Therefore it really comes down to brand loyalty and person
preference. Personally, brand is irrelevant but id rather not spend 500
dollars on a driver with all this tech when i could buy a ping i25 for 150
on ebay. So if your gonna complain, dont watch his damn videos (just
like/fav to help mark out cause hes a good guy!). FFS. Aslo, that 2 yards
in distance and 100 revs of spin is basically 0, with any testing whether
it be testing new drivers or a science experiment room for error must be
accounted which generally subjects to plus of minues 1-3 of the number
produced. In marks case it would be plus or minues 1-3 yards of carry and
plus or minues 100-200 revs of spin would subject to the clubs being for
all intents and purposes equal except for the color on the top and the logo
on the sidee…..

Chris Bamford says:

I get that all clubs perform about the same for you Mark, and I normally
like watching your channel, but how does it help us mere mortals if every
review you do says the same thing. We need something tangible otherwise
what’s the point of making the vids? Just asking…
