  1. The most consistently significant finding I’ve had when custom fitting this driver head to customers has been that they hit more fairways. They keep the ball in play.

  2. La definición más apropiada es, una cabeza de driver facil y potente, hace mucha distancia pero sin coger efectos indeseados.

  3. I have been using the 919 driver since its inception. I have found this driver out performs just about any clubhead that I have fit. I am amazed when I put OEM drivers up against this head, no comparison. Not only does the head perform well, it has a nice traditional shape which pleases the eye. I also am impressed with the new improvements in design. The cup face design and improved weld surfaces of the mating surfaces. I can tell you from personal experience that I have made a horrible swing at the ball and have watched club design and forgiveness take over. Thanks Tom for a GREAT design!

  4. I have been playing the 919 with a Fujikura Blur 005 for about 2 years. Great combination for accuracy and distance. With so many lofts available, this is my “Go To” head when fitting my customers

  5. The 919 driver is the most consistent performer on our launch monitor testing. Consistently beating the likes of Taylormade, Callaway, Titleist, and Ping for total carry and total distance. The most amazing statistic though, is how accurate this driver performs. Golfers are missing out if they haven’t tried the 919 driver.
    This may be Tom’s greatest design!

  6. THIS DRIVER HEAD SHOULD HAVE MADE THE GOLF DIGEST HOT LIST.IT IS THE MOST ACCURATE DRIVER IN MY FITTING SYSTEM. MY PERSONAL DRIVER HAS AN
    AEROTECH SS 75 R FLEX SHAFT IN THIS DRIVER HEAD. SUPER LONG OFF
    THE TEE. GREAT DESIGN TOM THANKS FOR SUCH A QUALITY DESIGN.

    • Bob, I am thinking of doing the same as you did – mating the Aerotech with the 919 but I’m not sure about the shaft stiffness and its relation to driver swing speed. I see you used the regular shaft. What swing speed range do you recommend for this stiffness? What swing speed do you recommend for the stiff shaft?

      Thanks for your help.

  7. I am not a worker of the golf ball, but I love having people ask me if golf dosen’t get boring just hitting this 919 straight down the fairway. I just smile. Great club head.

  8. The 919 driver is the most consistant driver and most solid driver I have ever hit. I hit a lot of drivers in Demo days so I know what else is out there and there is nothing that I have ever hit that feels this solid.

  9. Hands down the best driver head on the market today! I have played one myself since it came out. 28 of my last 30 driver fittings have involved the fit and purchase of a 919. The hidden “gem” of the design is it’s forgiveness with respect to ball speed (smash factor). Most drivers, when struck properly (on center) attain a reasonable ball speed/smash factor. The 919 consistently attains a 1.49/1.50 smash factor when struck on center. When struck slightly off center, compared to other OEMS/OEDS on the market, you can count on a 1.45 to 1.47 smash factors, even when mishit! Add the “hand pick” options offered by TWGT (loft, face angle, etc), after having launch monitor data properly analyzed by a qualified club fitter that knows how to interpret the data and you have purchased a driver that will be in your bag a long, long time!

  10. I have built 100+ drivers using this head design. I have had 1 returned, (I needed to give them a 13 deg instead of the 11 deg head they wanted). Most common remark is how far and consistent they hit the ball. The forgiveness built into this design is remarkable.

  11. I have played with my 919 ever since TWGT introduced to this great driver. At age 74 I have some limitations. However, consistent driving with confidence is not included. Thanks, Tom

  12. With out a doubt the best selling and perfoming head I have ever tested. Fitting and testing this head compared to other heads including OEM’s with few exceptions the customer will select this head. Sold a 919 11* with an S2S black 65 gram shaft today, customer has an 85 mph ss and still has a high ball flight with a baby draw, He is happy!

  13. happy to report as a geezer, won our Club Match play in 2011, with a White 919THI-11.5^; .5* open head, over 37 holes. Key to the win was hitting 85% of the fairways. Still have a client playing the original light blue 919 !…Great off center hit performance……solid sound…my go to head for performance….and hittability. Did I say great off center performance ??

  14. I love the GRT design of this head. It provides very consistent ball flights. Another noticeably feature of this head is that the dispersion is lower compared to off the rack club head i.e. Taylormade or Titliest.

    Last great thing is that there are so many choices of loft to choose to match individual skill which does not provide by off the rack brands which most of the time have only 9 and 11 degree

  15. Excellent Driver. With the GRT I also find launch to be much more consistent than with OEM drivers where the loft varies significantly depending on how high on the face you hit the ball. Was previously using a TM driver with specified loft of 9.5 degrees. Of course actual loft was closer to 11 degrees at impact location. Swithed to a 919 THI in 11 degrees and find this perfect for me. Long and forgiving, very consistent. Very solid feel at impact.

  16. The performance of this clubhead usually exceeds the OEM’s and is second to none in terms of performance.

  17. Sinds de introductie van deze driver heb ik hem opgenomen in mijn collectie en met veel succes. Deze driver verkoop ik het meest en het commentaar van nagenoeg alle klanten is dat het de meest vergevingsgezinde driver is die ze ooit gehad hebben met daarnaast veel afstand. De 919 THI is, in de verschillende uitvoeringen een driver die bij elk type golfer past.

  18. Excellet driver, best I have ever hit, solid feel and I like the GRT technology. Have alway had my personal driver and customers hand picked for loft, lie and face angle and they always come in right on request.

  19. The best driver head available, period. Sounds great, looks great and nothing comes close to forgiving off-center hits more. Time and time again I hear from my customers that their drives are much more consistent and can‘t believe how long and straight their bad shots turn out. The combination of high MOI, variable thickness forged face and GRT roll really does works. Also very important is how perfect it sounds at impact. The combo of this head and custom fitting the whole club for customers and it‘s easy to have them hitting LONGER AND STRAIGHTER than with any of the big name brands.

  20. No doubt the best driver head in golf today. This head out performs all other heads in launch monitor testing in dispersion, smash factor and distance. The most solid feeling driver I have ever hit. Off center hit hits are amazing, you think you have missed the shot and the ball ends up close to the same distance as an on center hit. Every driver fitting I’ve had this year has ended in the sale of a 919thi driver. The hand picking of loft and face angle at Wishon Golf has made my launch monitor fitting the best it could be. I feel this is Tom’s best driver head design so far.

  21. Absolutely one of the best driver head on the market today! The 919 consistently attains a 1.49/1.50 smash factor when struck on center. This head should be on the Golf Digest Hot List for sure. Most common remark is how far and consistent they hit the ball, especially on off-center contact. Also many choices for loft and face angle. However, I would like to see a lower loft offered like 7.5 for the skilled, high swing speed golfer with an ascending angle of attack.

  22. I’ve used the 919 for several years. Have tried others but always come back to the 9 degree. Dr. J

  23. One of the best driver heads ever made. It may not be the best feeling/sounding or absolute longest, but it is so, so good in all aspects of performance that I still say it’s the best. Like most golfers I try new drivers all the time, but I always come back to my 11* 919 as it offers the best combination of forgiveness and distance that I’ve found.

  24. As a clubfitter, I have fit more 919THI drivers than all others combined since it was first introduced. Properly fit this driver is Long AND accurate. Everyone I fit says it is the best performing and feeling driver they have hit.

  25. The hottest face, most consistent driver head available.PERIOD. I’ve been building 919′s for years now and have not had a customer yet who did’nt make substantial gains over there existing driver. I happen to work part time at a big box store doing the club repairs and I work with a lot of off the rack equipment. We use the same launch monitor at the store that I use at my shop and the 919 gets consistently higher power transfer ratios, sometimes to the tune of 15-18 m.p.h. of ball speed over a certain white headed driver. Then add in the hand pick to optimize launch angle and I’ve had customers report back 30 -50 yard gains. UNHEARD OF!!!!!!!

    • Curious to find out what shaft works well with Seniors.Tom has two choices that I like the White and the new gold. Any other ideas?

    • Roger:
      The S2S White certainly has been a very good selection for golfers with a midway release and average amount of force in their swing transition and tempo. With the White being available in A, R or S, it then can fit such a swing type with a swing speed from anywhere from 60 up to 100mph. But if the golfer has a more smooth, passive swing tempo with a little earlier than midway release, then the shaft of choice would be the S2S Green. Thanks and hope this helps!!

  26. From a pure playing perspective, having tried many drivers, the 919 has been one of the most consistent drivers yet. Nothing but quality from all aspects.

  27. This is the best driver head period ! I have played this head in my own driver for a few years and have not found anything (including the big names) that is as far or more accurate. When I put the 919THI in a client hand’s and they look at the distance, dispersion and feel that it produces, I usually get a “WOW” response.

  28. I’ve been fitting my customers with the 919 since they were introduced and I’ve been using one personally since then. With the selection of lofts and the hand pick options, I can fit everyone. I have not played or tested a better design…off centre hits don’t feel like mishits. also, the new cosmetics have huge eye appeal.

  29. I have a 919hl about 3 yrs old and have heard a lot of good things about it can you recomend a shaft for it. have3/4 swing about 90mpr
    hdcp is 6 thank you billy

    • Bill:

      As a 6 hdcp, we assume you would have a later to very late release, so for the 90mph clubhead speed with a later release, we would recommend the S2S Black 65 R flex. If you are also very strong and if you also have a very abrupt, strong, forceful tempo along with your 90mph clubhead speed and later release, we then would recommend the S2S Black R flex in the 85 gram version. Thanks very much and best wishes in this great game!!

      TOM

  30. I just got fit for a 919THI (White head, square face angle) and I simply cannot wait to get it! Tom, thanks for your assistance in recommending my fitter. I will sing your praises (and the praises of my fitter, Mike at Golf MD) until the day I die!!!

  31. Anyone know where I can get a reasonable swing speed unit?

    Thanks

    email; stufftome @ gmail dot com

    • JOHN:

      WE do offer what in our opinion is the best low cost clubhead speed measurement unit. It is a small portable device that captures swing speed and swing tempo using a radar pulse, which is a reliable sensor source for such measurements. Look for the GOLFER’S STORE link at the top of the home page on our website. Click and then scroll down to see the listing for TECHNOLOGY ITEMS. click on that and the third product down is the portable clubhead speed/swing tempo measurement unit.

      TOM

  32. Saw the 919THI Driver head at my clubfitter in Charlotte, NC., and read some great reviews. I will have John order the club head set up as open as possible. But my problem with many drivers is that they are too upright. That’s one of the reasons why I play Titliest, the lie can be adjusted. Can the 919 lie be flattened maybe 1+ degrees? Thks.

    • JOE

      Thanks very much for your interest. Yes, we recently re designed the hosel of the 919THI driver heads to make it so it can be adjusted to offer golfers a far wider range in both the lie and face angles. We can adjust the lie as much as +/-3* flat or up from the design lie spec, so if you actually need more than 1 flat, we can do that. And we can also adjust the face angle more open. Once John determines your best fitting specs, he can order the head from us and ask us to hit the lie and FA that best fits you.

      Again thanks, and the very best wishes to you in this great game!

  33. Hello Tom I am a new golfer I have your 919thi 10.5 driver and 14 and 18 woods. Can you give me a little information regarding the “draw bias”? As to what that means and what it is intended for. Thank you

    • ERIC:

      The term “draw bias” was coined to go with the version of the 919THI driver that I intended to be a fitting option for golfers with an outside in swing path who tend to slice the ball and want that misdirection flight tendency reduced so they can keep the ball more in play. So the 919THI Draw Bias is designed with an intentional closed face angle to reduce the slice by making the face angle so it points more to the left or draw side of the hole. Thanks very much for your question and your interest and I do hope that your clubs are treating you well and allowing you to enjoy this great game a little more!

      TOM

  34. Just received my 919THI yesterday,and I am amazed at the distance, and ball
    flight. I am 68 year old and the driver is 10.5 “draw bias’ 45 inches, AeroTech
    Powercoil 50. The club builder informed me he tip it just a little to a soft
    regular. swing weight is D4. The instructor liked to ball flight. and the loft 10.5.
    Thanks Tom for a great product.

    • Marion

      The thanks go to YOU for having made the decision to work with a clubmaker to be fit into the 919THI driver. In total honesty I can say I enjoy the part of my work that allows me to design clubheads and shafts, but it really can’t compare with how good I feel when I get the chance to hear that one of my designs is really bringing more enjoyment to a golfer. Thanks SO MUCH for taking your time to comment on this and we do wish you even more enjoyment in the future in this great game!!

      TOM

  35. I’ve had my 919THI driver for about five months, and with it, I have played the best golf of my life. MY FW percentage has increased by 15 full points, and I have gained about 20 yards after pairing the head with the perfect shaft. All of my golf buddies are jealous of this beautiful club, and my word of mouth praise has help sell at least 5! Great job, TOM!

    • Evan

      15% more fairways and 20 more yards is great for us to hear and we can almost see your bigger smile between the lines of your message!! Thanks so much for letting us know and for being enthusiastic enough about the driver to talk it up among your friends!!

      Best wishes to you for even more enjoyment in this great game!!!

      TOM

  36. Tom, I recently read your article on gaining more distance. The part on verticle roll was interesting. Why would one not want to design a smaller driver head, say in the high 300 cc’s, with less verticle roll? Like a large FW.

    • RAY

      It is true that the smaller the face height on the woodhead, the less roll is needed to cause proper ball flight performance for higher or lower face hits. With 400-460cc size drivers which have face heights typically of 50mm and taller, our testing has shown that with such a tall face height you do have to have some roll on the face. In other wrods, with taller face heights a vertically flat face won;t perform that well for higher face hits. The reason is because higher face hits also generate an action that is called the Vertical Gear Effect which in turn causes the spin rate for higher face hits to be less. With a tall vertically flat face what happens on the higher face hit is that the lower spin needs a little higher launch angle to keep the ball in the air long enough for proper carry distance. WIth a tall vertically flat face there is not enough loft up there at the top of the face to combine with this lower spin from the Vertical Gear Effeft to keep the ball in the air long enough for proper carry distance.

      But as face height gets smaller, you definitely can make the roll less and less curved because shorter face height woods do not generate anywhere near the reduced spin from a higher face hit. Hence I have designed our fairway woods and hybrid heads with very close to no roll (close to vertically flat) for quite a few years now and they perform very well for high, center and lower face hits.

      So when you talk about a smaller driver such as a 300cc volume, there would have to be some roll on the face for proper high face hit performance. But how much depends on exactly how tall the face height is on that 300cc driver.

      TOM

  37. is the919 conforming

    • Yes it is, and you can see all models of the 919THI listed on the conforming list that the USGA maintains on their website.

      TOM

  38. I really like it when folks come together and share opinions.
    Great site, keep it up!

  39. Wow, never thought I could be so consistent with a driver. 275-315+ yards straight or with a beautiful draw. Unbelievable control with the 919THI. I’ve had about 10 different name brand drivers in the past 2 years from the R11 to the Nike Covert, not one compares to Wishon’s driver. Solid club. Thanks again to Tom Wishon and Rick Musselman.

  40. Can’t say enough just how nice these perform. I thought I tried just about all the current heads out there (OEM and components)but the 919 is just amazing in how nice and high it launches with very little spin. My most accurate build yet. I paired this with a Steelfiber SS75 shaft. Love the sound, feel, and performance. Am so I glad I decided to give this a try.
    I also notice that there is hardly any distance loss even when struck high and towards the toe.

  41. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very
    easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and
    visit more often. Did you hire out a designer
    to create your theme? Superb work!

    • Thanks very much for your comments and for your interest. We do most of our web work with a couple of guys who while consultants, are really more like being in house with us here.

      TOM

  42. Hello Tom,

    I have a driver (919 THI/11) and a Fairway wood 4 (925 THL/16,5).

    What are the most efficient tee hights for both?

  43. I had one fitted a few months ago and felt i had to comment because the head is awesome. I had a 9 degree fitted to a ust x flex. Had the fitter bend it to a 10 degree cause the ball flight was too low but still long. Miss hits still went far but dispersion was tighter. Length wise: won the longest drive 285 (meters in wet conditions) contest in a tourney a few weeks ago. It is very forgiving. But i have to admit, I did fit a balanced certified stabilizer to fight off my inherent slice. The 3rd driver I ever bought in my life and by far the longest. Previous driver was an old cleveland launcher 10.5 degrees. Get fitted to a right shaft and it’ll reward you tremendously.

    • NIK

      Thank you very much for sharing your experience with the 919THI driver and the work with your clubfitter to get the driver set up properly to fit you well. 285 METERS?? Yes, I would say that as you said in the last line of your message that you are being rewarded tremendously !!! HA!

      Thanks and the very best wishes to you in this great game!!

      TOM

  44. I have been looking for a few years now for a driver with an adjustable hosel. I play my irons 5* flat and am wondering if you have any driver that is capable of being adjusted to a 53-54* lie angle? I know the specs of the 919 say it could get to about a 56* lie angle.
    I’ve even considered purchasing the 929hs 2 wood and using it as my driver because it can get down to about a 53.5 degree lie. Ideally I would like to play a driver with a lie angle of about 51* but I figure that’s probably asking too much unless I wanna play an old persimmon.

    • Kourt
      Actually with the +/-4* capability of the hosel on the 919, we can get it to a 54* lie. it’s design spec is 58* so the -4 on that takes it down to 54*. And we have done that a number of times so it would not be any problem whatsoever to hit that lie.

      TOM

  45. O I must have misread the spec sheet. Thanks so much thats awesome! I’ll see if I can find a clubfitter to make me one at that spec. I was wondering though. As golf clubs get longer the lie angle is supposed to progressively get flatter. It’s clear to see that with irons. But why is it that the lie angle of drivers today jump way up to 60* + for most manufacturers? My fairway woods all have flatter lie angles than the current drivers.
    Also I just want to say thank you. I haven’t been able to order any of your clubs yet because I don’t have a club fitter that carries your product anywhere close to me, but I have looked at all of your products and I think they are incredible. The adjustable hosel is absolutely brilliant. We go through custom fitting of our irons but it’s near impossible to custom fit a fairway wood/driver until you developed these products so thank you in advance!

  46. I have ordered a 919 THI 11º with a Prolaunch Red Stiff cutt to 44′! Tried a few shafts with a Clubmaker in Madrid (Spain) and turned out that this is the best configuration for me.

    The classic shape of the head is just beatifull and the forgiveness of the design is amazing, the best I have tried!

    • Thanks Luis, it really was a pleasure to correspond with you about your driver needs too !!!

      TOM

  47. The best way to start is simply !WOW! I will do my best to keep it brief, but these components are fantastic. I recently went through an entire bag reconstruction. I went to Perfect Lies Golf for help and if you are within driving distance of Fred, you will not be disappointed – with the following caveat – be brutally honest about your game, be open minded to suggestions and allow the club find you. Once I did those thing and allowed Fred pair me with the 919 THI 11 degree head and the correct shaft for my swing characteristics – just WOW! I am guilty of being influenced by a major brand name. My ego dictated that I needed an extra stiff, heavy-weight shaft (80+ grams) with very little loft (8.58-9.5*) – the more the parts costs the better it was going to perform. It was the magic pill I’ve been waiting for. WRONG!!! The reality for me was a lighter shaft (62g), R-flex (4.8-5.2) and 11* TWGT 919THI head – a combination that out performs my old OEM driver significantly. I realized that placing a value on marketing over performance was mis-guided. I now hit straighter, farther (30+ yds) and with much better accuracy than ever before and it was worth every penny I spent. I don’t understand the technical side of why it works, nor do I care – it just does and it provides me the necessary confidence to pull it from my bag anytime I need it. Now I just laugh on the inside (as well as on the outside) when the rest of my foursome pulls out the latest $500 over-hyped driver and I smoke ‘em with my 919THI. With that I say thank you Tom for making the quality components that you do. These components in the hands of the right fitter are magical. I can’t say it enough, but TWGT & Perfect Lies Golf in the Northeast (NY/NJ/CT/PA/MA) is a winning combination!
    Thanks!
