Thanks for Sharing and a great write up on your fitting.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!
