Where the THP Tour Van Takes Us!
  • Thread starter
  • Admin
  • #1
Last month the Titleist TSi driver line debuted when it began hitting tour bags and appeared on the USGA conforming list. Today the lineup becomes official with the TSi 2 and TSi 3 drivers and fairway woods.

We have spent the last few weeks testing them in the THP Tech Studio and in this video have a little bit of everything. Since the release is new, we thought it best to cover the gamut in this video rather than just the testing. First up will be Josh Talge, VP of Marketing of Titleist Golf Clubs talking tech and then we move right into the data and break it down for you.


We have a lot more coming on the Titleist TSi drivers and fairway woods in the coming weeks, but after watching this video what are your thoughts?

I absolutely loved the TS 3 driver and if it wasn't for a certain other OEM THP Experience I likely would still be gaming it.

I am VERY interested in this new lineup!

This driver is really impressive... I mean really.. This is maybe the first Titleist driver in a very long time. Maybe since the 905d that I was wow'd by.

Thanks for the video and interview @Canadan I really like the looks of both the drivers and the TSi2 having a touch more ball speed is interesting. One thing is how was the sound at impact? Did it have a more metallic or muted sound at impact? Also could you tell where you hit the face on impact?

I like the ProV1x and Vokey Wedges. But am always curious about what OEMs are doing. Thx.

So ready for this video! Nice job Dan.

These are super high on my list for next year.

Did they set a release date on these yet?

So that was a nicely informative video that definitely didn't make me want one any less, despite my hopes. D***IT!

This might be the sexiest driver I've ever seen.

That price makes me cringe a little....but that happens with every Titleist release.

Very cool.

I was invited to go to a TSI fitting last wed for the driver and FW wood up in Scottsdale. Titleist gave us a rundown on the new driver & fw wood along with info on the new 2021 Prov's and Prov1x balls coming out. We received a sleeve of the new balls also to try!

I will start by saying my driver swing that day was rough but I managed to get some solid strikes with my current gamer to get some baseline numbers for him. The fitter started me with a TS2I . The shape reminds me a lot of my current gamer but it had a much different sound. @mikeg_74 asked above what the sound was like and his description of metallic is a good way to describe it. I loved the sound on the first hit. This is my first time hitting a Titleist driver so I cannot compare the sound to any others they have had.

The TSI2 felt great right away and and the first thing the fitter told me is my spin numbers were way down compared to my Gamer. My miss is a push right when I am struggling with the driver. With the TSI2 that really made the push to the right very playable. They were no where near as far right for me so hopefully that will help me stay in play a bit more. We settled in on a Tensei AV White Raw 65 gram shaft at 45 inches. Titleist also has a weight kit so you can change out the weights and we took the stock one out and added 4 more grams. Once that adjustment was made I started ripping drives right down the middle! I think my best drive that day was almost 270 with the most between 240 and 260. Toe hits were very forgiving also. You can see the ball strike on the face they were using a rag with just water to clean them off each time.

We tried the TS3I head with the same shaft and the results were just not quite as good and I need all of the forgiveness I can get lol! I also preferred the head shape of the TS2I. Both heads are beautiful and Titleist did a great job with the sound and feel.

We were told that the shaft options were real deal shafts and not made for Titleist also.

I also hit the 3 wood TS2I with the same shaft. First swing 240 with a nice high straight ball flight. The next three swings were the same flight just a bit farther. That club felt like you were hitting the ball with a sledgehammer just so solid! Looking forward to getting these in play soon! I will say the TS3I adjustable weight in the FW is really slick.

We went to a place called Desert Mountain in Scottsdale. 7 golf courses and all private is my understanding. The course we were on was called Renegade and it is all bent grass. An absolutely beautiful place too bad I cant play there lol!

this is an exciting release for me. moved away from playing titleist drivers only because of the itch for new. but the previous models worked so well for me. this goes way back to high school when i played the 975's.

"Longest, straightest, best sounding and feeling Titleist ever" according to their e-mail today.
That's quite a statement. I'm not sure I'll upgrade, but this is one I have to try, just to measure their marketing claims.
I like the emphasis on the faceplate material. They heard me! yeah! (Most important info to me, right there.)
Same shaft/adapter as the 913 series still? Great to be able to do a head to head, same-shaft comparison to see if there is anything to be gained.

Not a knock on Titleist, but all the drivers with so many moving parts, I almost expect something to break during my ownership?
Not that people look at drivers as investments, but it stinks if your ride ends up "in the shop." But we are so far into the "adjustables" now, there is no going back (nor do I want to.)

I'd like to see manufacturers possibly address this with specific information on how fast their warranty turnaround can be expected if you do have an issue. At $599 a pop now or whatever, I think that is fair. No one likes to be without their driver. I just see a lot of threads where people are sending clubs back is why it comes to mind. Looks like the most "stuff" on one of their drivers ever. Love their "stuff" usually, so we shall see...

The TSi3 driver is amazing...

I was absolutely blown away by it. The feel is stellar and it has that long on the face feel. For an all titanium head the sound is perfect.. Super sleek in the black, although I would prefer something a bit less glossy but that is a small complain.

And I was thinking I wouldn't be interested in straying from my current TS3. There I go thinking again.
