  1. CARLSBAD, Calif. (February 17, 2021) – The introduction of the new Titleist TSi4 driver provides golfers seeking ultra-low spin performance with the advanced speed and distance gains that have made Titleist TSi2 and TSi3 the most played driver models this season on the PGA Tour. The new TSi4, the driver choice of Adam Scott, Russell Henley and Richy Werenski, among others on the PGA Tour, is engineered to be a high-speed, ultra-low spin design – challenging the notion that a driver designed for extreme spin reduction can’t produce that level of ball speed. “The TSi4 fulfills the ultra-low spin product within our TSi lineup,” said Stephanie Luttrell, Director of Titleist Metalwood Development. “For those players that need aggressive spin reduction to improve their distance, we now have that product in the TSi lineup.” The Center of Gravity (CG) is the lowest in the TSi family of drivers and it is also the most forward. That allows the driver to deliver less dynamic loft and less spin at impact, providing that low spin promise. A higher Moment of Inertia (MOI) in the TSi4 also contributes to a higher launch, overall trajectory, and produces more distance for that target player. At 430cc, with a very classic, small pear-shaped profile and improved sound and feel, the TSi4 is also the most workable of all TSi drivers. “In general, high spin comes from players that either come over the top, have a steep attack angle, or are adding significant loft at impact,” said Luttrell. “So, the TSi4 is not strictly reserved towards high speed players, but absolutely dedicated towards all golfers who require spin reduction in order to improve their distance by producing a longer, more piercing ball flight.” ATI 425 AEROSPACE TITANIUM FACE: Faster in the air and faster at impact, all Titleist TSi drivers push the boundaries of speed through advanced engineering and material breakthroughs – including a new ATI 425 Aerospace Titanium face construction never before used in golf – that combine to produce the longest, straightest, best-looking, and best-sounding Titleist drivers ever. From the top of the swing, TSi’s player-tuned aerodynamics propel the clubhead faster toward the golf ball. At impact, the extremely powerful ATI 425 face launches the ball with added speed. High inertia properties produce an extremely stable clubhead, providing players with more consistent speed and spin across the face for longer, straighter drives. ATI 425 Aerospace Titanium is a unique material that delivers superior strength, elasticity and durability versus the conventional titanium alloys used in golf. The exceptional ductility of ATI 425 (30 percent higher than 6-4 Titanium) allowed engineers to produce Titleist’s fastest driver face, while maintaining the durability properties required for consistent maximum performance. Made by a single foundry in Pittsburgh, ATI 425 was initially developed for ballistic armor applications and has since been used in many aerospace and commercial aircraft solutions, including jet engines and NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander. Titleist is the only company in golf that uses this material. PLAYER-TUNED AERODYNAMICS & SOUND: The improved shaping of the TSi4 allows the club head to move faster through the air and deliver more power at impact. The TSi4 has been aerodynamically engineered to reduce drag up to 6 percent (versus prior generation TS4 model), increasing club head speed for greater ball speed and distance. MULTI-DIMENSIONAL STABILITY: While golfers often equate “high MOI” with heel to toe forgiveness, Titleist R&D employs a more holistic approach to MOI design. TSi optimizes sole to crown performance by producing higher inertia values versus the prior generation TS models and delivers more speed and a tighter launch and spin range up and down the face. TSi’s speed-optimized MOI works in concert with a low and deep CG position to drive faster ball speed with a high launch, low spin trajectory and exceptional stability for greater distance consistency. PERFORMANCE-TUNED ADJUSTABILITY: The TSi4 features Titleist’s patented SureFit hosel with 16 independent loft/lie settings, plus headweight adjustability (in two-gram increments, ranging from -4g to 4g) to create a more consistent and optimized ball flight through precision fitting. CT TESTED AND MAXIMIZED: Every TSi4 driver is precision manufactured to the tightest tolerances and measured multiple times to ensure performance is at the maximum allowable limit. ULTRA-THIN TITANIUM CROWN: The thinnest cast titanium crown in the game allows weight to be redistributed low and forward for reduced spin. STREAMLINED SHAPE: The aerodynamic design of TSi4 – featuring a 430cc classic, pear shape – reduces drag, allowing golfers to swing faster for increased club head speed and more distance. LOFTS: RH - 8.0, 9.0, 10.0 | LH - 9.0 FEATURED SHAFTS: Golfers can choose from two featured shafts – HZRDUS Smoke Yellow 60 (Low launch/low spin) and TENSEI AV White RAW 65 (Low launch/low spin). Titleist also offers an array of custom shaft options that can be viewed at: https://www.titleist.com/golf-clubs/specifications FEATURED GRIP: Golf Pride TV 360 Gray Flat Cap 58R FREE TRIAL & FITTINGS: Golfers can experience the advanced speed of the new TSi4 drivers, beginning February 17, by attending a Titleist Fitting Day or Trial event (including Titleist Thursdays) being held at hundreds of locations nationwide. To find an event, or book a free TSi metals fitting with a Titleist Fitting Specialist, golfers can visit https://www.titleist.com/fitting/appointments. AVAILABILITY AND PRICE: Titleist TSi4 drivers will be available for pre-sale beginning February 17, 2021 and in-shop on February 26, 2021 | MAP: $549
  2. CARLSBAD, Calif. (February 17, 2021) – Titleist has consistently promoted hybrids as scoring clubs – as opposed to rescue clubs - and the new TSi2 and TSi3 hybrids represent a new standard within the category. Engineered for golfers seeking long iron replacements, these new hybrids offer two distinct looks and performance options, including improved adjustability, sound and feel. The new hybrids complete the popular TSi metals line, complementing the TSi2 and TSi3 drivers and fairway metals, which have gained considerable momentum across the worldwide professional tours and in the marketplace since their November introduction. Both models feature Carpenter 455 forged faces. • The tremendously forgiving TSi2 is the ‘workhorse’ hybrid, maximizing performance by providing high launch and easy distance for players with a sweeping delivery. The larger, classic profile is designed for players who prefer the look of a fairway metal. • The TSi3 hybrids are distinctly different in looks, adjustability and performance from the TSi2. Designed with a compact, squarer toe and very little face progression, the fast-launching TSi3 hybrids feature a similar SureFit CG Track Technology system as the new TSi3 fairway metals, allowing the ability to manipulate adjustability towards the toe or heel. The TSi3 hybrids, designed with direct feedback from Titleist tour staff, offer mid-launch, precise distance, and iron-like control, especially for players who hit down on the golf ball. “One of the key points of difference in fitting and performance between the new Titleist TSi hybrids and the competition is the level of adjustability we offer, especially in the TSi3,” said Josh Talge, Vice President, Titleist Golf Club Marketing. “We all stress that golfers should be custom fit for drivers and irons, so why not hybrids? The golfer may need or want to increase or decrease loft, add a degree upright or make the club flatter. Those adjustability options are available with the new TSi hybrids and we think that, in combination with outstanding performance, sets these hybrids apart.” Titleist has been the overwhelmingly most played hybrids on the PGA Tour since 2014, and according to J.J. Van Wezenbeeck, Director of Player Promotion, nearly 60 percent of current players are gaming their hybrid in a non-neutral setting. “That is a really important statistic,” said Talge. “Given the significant number of players adjusting their hybrids at the highest level of the game, the need is even greater as you go down the pyramid. It is further proof we are improving the options and opportunities for all golfers - many of whom prefer or require hybrids – and helps them to play better and enjoy the game more.” An extension of the Titleist Speed Project that began over three years ago, the new Titleist TSi hybrids combine the explosive speed, distance and advanced technology of TSi metalwoods. The new TSi2 and TSi3 hybrids will allow golfers to replace their long irons with even more speed, launch and precision. FREE TRIAL & FITTINGS: Beginning February 17, golfers can experience the new Titleist TSi hybrids by attending a Titleist Fitting and Trial event (including Titleist Thursdays) being held at hundreds of locations nationwide. To find an event, or book a free fitting with a Titleist Fitting Specialist, golfers should visit https://www.titleist.com/fitting/appointments TS HYBRID PERFORMANCE & TECHNOLOGY: The improved performance of TSi hybrids is driven by the innovative Titleist Speed Chassis, featuring technologies originally developed for drivers and fairways and now optimized for each hybrid shape: • Thin, fast face: The fastest hybrid face Titleist has ever made delivers faster ball speeds and increased forgiveness. • Optimized Weight Distribution. The crown and face thicknesses create a lower CG for higher launch and lower spin. The resulting increase in MOI creates a powerful combination of speed and stability. • SureFit Hosel Technology. Both TSi2 and TSi3 hybrids feature Titleist’s patented SureFit hosel with 16 independent loft and lie settings, plus headweight adjustability to create a more consistent and optimized ball flight through precision fitting. • SureFit CG Track Technology. The TSi3 hybrid models offer three unique positions – Toe (T), Neutral (N) and Heel (H) – to adjust clubhead CG and fine-tune ball flight. After adjustment, the new track design disappears into the sole of the club to allow for smooth turf interaction through impact. TSi2: High launching, mid/low spin wood-type hybrid • Features headweight adjustability (same as TSi2 driver and fairways) TSi3: Flatter trajectory, lower-spin iron-type hybrid • Features headweight and SureFit CG track adjustability in three positions, the same as TSi3 fairways. • Loft Options: TSi2 – RH: 18º, 21º, 24º | LH: 18º, 21º, 24º | TSi3 - RH: 18º, 20º | LH: 18º, 20º • SureFit Hosel: Compatible with Titleist TS, 917, 915, 913 and 910 hybrids FEATURED SHAFTS: The TSi featured shaft lineup extends to TSi hybrids with four aftermarket models developed by the game’s top shaft manufacturers using insights from Titleist’s industry-best motion capture and consumer testing. The featured shaft options include: Tensei AV White RAW 90 HY (low launch, low spin) HZRDUS Smoke Black RDX 80 HY (low launch, low spin) Tensei AV Blue RAW 75 HY (mid launch, mid/low spin) Kuro Kage Black DC 5G 55 HY (high launch, moderate spin) FEATURED GRIP: Golf Pride TV 360 Gray Flat Cap 58R TSi HYBRIDS ON TOUR: TSi hybrids made their PGA Tour debut at The American Express in January and were quickly put into play by some of the world’s best. In fact, the TSi3 shape was inspired by work at the Titleist Performance Institute with brand ambassadors Charley Hoffman and Webb Simpson. They liked a design between a utility iron and a smaller headed hybrid and the result was the new TSi3. AVAILABILITY AND PRICING: Titleist TSi2 and TSi3 hybrids are available in golf shops worldwide beginning Feb. 26 | MAP: $279 ON THE WEB: www.titleist.co

  4. CARLSBAD, Calif. (Oct. 15, 2020) – Faster in the air and faster at impact, the new Titleist TSi drivers push the boundaries of speed through advanced engineering and material breakthroughs – including a new ATI 425 Aerospace Titanium face construction never before used in golf – that combine to produce the longest, straightest, best-looking, and best-sounding Titleist drivers ever. Available in golf shops Nov. 12, with fittings beginning today at locations nationwide, the new TSi2 and TSi3 models transcend the advancements of the original Titleist Speed Project, accelerating the performance that has made Titleist the most played driver on the PGA Tour for two seasons running. From the top of the swing, TSi’s player-tuned aerodynamics propel the clubhead faster toward the golf ball. At impact, the extremely powerful ATI 425 face launches the ball with added speed. High inertia properties produce an extremely stable clubhead, providing players with more consistent speed and spin across the face for longer, straighter drives: • TSi2 is designed to deliver incredible speed and accuracy across the entire surface of the face, with a deeper, lower CG to maximize distance. • TSi3 is for players capable of creating more consistent contact or requiring more precise control over CG placement, featuring a new SureFit CG Track Design for advanced speed-tuned performance. “TSi is simply better when it comes to all four fundamentals of driver design – distance, accuracy, looks and sound,” said Josh Talge, Vice President, Titleist Golf Club Marketing. “We continue to make every investment necessary to help players achieve the speed and distance gains they are asking for, without having to make any sacrifices when it comes to performance. ATI 425 is an incredible breakthrough for driver performance, but it’s just one piece of the puzzle. Every aspect of TSi has been optimized to benefit the total package, and it’s the integration of all those parts that drives greater ball speed and an experience at impact that tour players can’t stop talking about.” The first week that TSi drivers were made available on the PGA and European Tours in early September, a total of 57 players immediately made the switch, with more players choosing TSi drivers than any other model across the two events. The following week at the U.S. Open, TSi was the most played driver model at Winged Foot Golf Club. “TSi just looks fast and it sounds like a missile coming off the face,” said Justin Thomas. “When I first tested it I hit one drive off the toe and it carried almost 20 yards further than I would have thought. That’s what we want is the bad ones to perform better. Those weeks where I’m not hitting it consistently in the middle of the face, I feel like this [TSi driver] is going to have the opportunity for me to narrow my window and dispersion… The fact that it is faster without giving anything up – I can’t believe how much it’s improved when it already seemed to be the best that it can get.” ATI 425 AEROSPACE TITANIUM FACE Accurately tuned for speed at every point of contact, TSi driver faces are constructed from ATI 425 Aerospace Titanium, a unique material that delivers superior strength, elasticity and durability versus the conventional titanium alloys used in golf. The exceptional ductility of ATI 425 (30 percent higher than 6-4 Titanium) allowed engineers to produce Titleist’s fastest driver face, while maintaining the durability properties required for consistent maximum performance. “ATI 425 is an amazing alloy that leads to a lot of performance benefits,” said Dan Stone, Senior Vice President, Titleist Golf Club R&D. “It’s incredibly strong and maintains elongation under high stress. It let us optimize the thickness of the entire face to a degree that was never possible before and generate our highest ball speeds ever at points all over the face – not just heel and toe but also high and low. This is not an easy material to obtain, but the benefits to the golfer are beyond anything we’ve ever seen.” Made by a single foundry in Pittsburgh, ATI 425 was initially developed for ballistic armor applications and has since been used in many aerospace and commercial aircraft solutions, including jet engines and NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander. Titleist is the only company in golf that uses this material. The TSi face also features a new high-contrast graphic design that accentuates face center for easy alignment at address. PLAYER-TUNED AERODYNAMICS & SOUND The improved shaping of TSi allows the club head to move faster through the air and deliver a more powerful impact. Both TSi2 and TSi3 have been aerodynamically engineered to reduce drag up to 15 percent (versus prior generation TS models), increasing club head speed for greater ball speed and distance. The new head shapes feature a tour-requested softer toe profile that looks square at address. TSi feels fast in a golfer’s hands and is complemented by meticulous sound engineering that manages vibrations within the club head to deliver a Tour-quality sound. MULTI-DIMENSIONAL STABILITY While golfers often equate “high MOI” with heel to toe forgiveness, Titleist R&D employs a more holistic approach to MOI design. TSi also optimizes sole to crown performance, producing up to 13 percent higher inertia values (versus prior generation TS models) that deliver more speed and a tighter launch and spin range up and down the face. TSi’s speed-optimized MOI works in concert with a low and deep CG position to drive faster ball speed with a high launch, low spin trajectory and exceptional stability for greater distance consistency. PERFORMANCE-TUNED ADJUSTABILITY The new TSi3 model features a new SureFit CG track technology that offers five unique positions to adjust club head CG and fine-tune ball flight. The track offers more precise incremental adjustments – H2 (most heel biased), H1, Neutral, T1, T2 (most toe biased) – allowing a player to dial-in their launch conditions. Both TSi2 and TSi3 feature Titleist’s patented SureFit hosel with 16 independent loft and lie settings, plus headweight adjustability (in two-gram increments, ranging from -4g to 4g) to create a more consistent and optimized ball flight through precision fitting. CT TESTED AND MAXIMIZED Every TSi driver is precision manufactured to the tightest tolerances and measured multiple times to ensure performance is at the maximum allowable limit.

INSTANT TOUR ADOPTION TSi has become the most played driver on both the PGA and European Tours since being introduced to players the second week of September. In total, more than 150 players across the worldwide professional tours have played new TSi2 or TSi3 models in competition over the past five weeks. There are currently 20 players in the Official World Golf Rankings Top 100 carrying a new TSi model, including four in the OWGR’s Top 20 – Justin Thomas (TSi3) and Adam Scott (TSi3), in addition to two others playing TSi3 without an agreement. Among the Titleist players transitioning into the new TSi2 are Cameron Davis, Tyler Duncan, Lanto Griffin, Chesson Hadley, Brian Harman, Tom Hoge, Mark Hubbard and C.T. Pan. Those choosing to play the new TSi3 include: Ben An, Rafa Cabrera Bello, Lucas Bjerregaard, Bud Cauley, Charley Hoffman, Max Homa, Charles Howell III, Patton Kizzire, Peter Malnati, J.T. Poston, Ian Poulter, Robby Shelton, Cameron Smith, Scott Stallings, Jordan Spieth, Jimmy Walker, Bernd Wiesberger and Will Zalatoris.

  5. Testers ANNOUNCED! Handling the testing this time will be: @TSauer @HeathS16 @hartrick11 @dlow206 @alfriday101 @Rickp Full announcement here: https://forum.mygolfspy.com/topic/41031-testers-wanted-6-titleist-tsi-drivers/?do=findComment&comment=695637 ______________________________________________________ This is a big one and a unique opportunity from any OEM. Titleist is going to have the new TSi drivers in the hands of six forum members by “Launch Day” which is the week of the Masters. You will be among the very first consumers to receive these in hand and on course for play. When the Titleist TS Series of drivers were launched two years ago, they were a big departure form the 9 Series drivers Titleist had produced for several years. They immediately won over the tour players and have been the most played on tour just about every week during the past two years. When the TSi series was made available to the tour staff a couple weeks ago at the US Open, it was no shock that several of the players put them straight in the bag. Titleist calls this Tour Validation. What’s new and improved with the TSi? From the few official images provided, there are some changes in the weight configuration and apparently a big story in the face design. Those details will come soon enough. In the meantime, Titleist is going to put these in the trusted hands of our readers for them to give a full review back to our forum members. My Golf Spy call this Forum Testing. We are looking for six members-(3) TSi2 and (3) TSi3 who reside in the United States, to join myself--as a staff tester--in the test group for the TSi drivers. How to Apply-US Only In a post below provide the following information: First Name City, State Current Driver in Play Handicap Swing Speed Which Driver Would You Like to Review That's it, we'll pick the testers sometime next week, be sure to check back and your PM's to see if you've been selected! Good Luck!
