919 Fairway/Driver Description, Specifications & Club Fitting
919 F/D is the perfect club to be used as an oversize fairway wood or as a small driver on tight driving holes. The face height and the overall club head size is between a modern normal size driver (460cc volume and 53mm in face height) and a modern 3-Wood (170cc volume and 33mm face height). The 919 F/D is 260cc volume and 39mm face height.
The head weight allows it to be built to shorter club length...43" to 43.75" plus the smaller head size has more stability and also promotes more ball speed and less spin for more distance. However, it still maintains a maximum COR face similar to a larger 460cc driver head. 919 F/D has an extremely high moment of inertia which results in accurate ball flight.
There is also the possibility of getting a "hand select" loft that is 1° more or less loft than the standard. In addition, the 919F/D has a special stainless steel hosel which allows the head to be bent for both face angle and lie angle. Face angle can be bent 4° open (Hook Correction) to 4° closed (Slice Correction). Lie angle can be bent 4° flat to 4° upright.

Normal Drive Distance
How Far Do Golfers Really Hit Drives
"I hit my drives 270 yards."
Hah! Maybe once, with the wind behind you, on a rock-hard fairway, when the ball bounced off a cart path and a squirrel advanced it an extra 10 yards. On no subject are golfers, especially male golfers, more deluded than on the distance they hit their drives.
Here are the brutal facts, accumulated by Dave Pelz over several years of monitoring thousands of players at amateur tournaments. He used the same ShotLink equipment used by the PGA Tour to determine that, in 2018, the world’s best players averaged 291 yards off the tee.
Male amateurs who score 100 + have average drives of 166 yards
Male amateurs who score 92 - 99 average 183 yards
Male amateurs who score 82 - 88 average 214 yards
Male amateurs who score low 70's average 235 yards.
As for actual yardage hit by golfers, you need to know that MOST golf courses do NOT measure the yardages correctly. Scorecard yardages are often 60 - 80 yards longer than what the hole really is.
Hands Shoulder Height or Lower
Hands Higher Than Shoulders
Wrist Cock Release Point on Downswing
1. Early Release means the downswing to the ball is started with the hands. Generally done by beginners or higher scoring players who score 90 +.
2. Midway Release means the downswing to the ball is started with some body movement before the hands start to uncock. Generally done by Intermediate Players who score 82 - 89.
3. Late Release means the downswing to the ball is started by weight shift in the legs, followed by the trunk of the body and finally the hands uncocking very near impact with the ball. Always done by advanced players who score 70 - 79.
Measure Hand (as shown in picture) before selecting the correct grip size
Lie angle of your clubs is essential. It can affect shots hit with both woods and irons because it will greatly affect the initial direction of your shots. Lie angle is defined as the angle between the shaft and the ground line when the club is measured in normal playing position with the center of the sole touching the ground line.
The lie angle is much more important on irons than on woods due to club length and loft angle of the woods. It can still be of use on the woods in extreme cases.
Below is a chart the gives lie angle based on wrist-to-floor measurement. You can use this as a "starting point" when determining the ideal lie angle for you.
