  1. I just got the email that the new 2021 irons are going through Tour validation, and they had one teaser pic included. This will be interesting to follow for sure!!!
  2. Hi spies. I just completed my first attempt at restoring a set of clubs and I'm really proud of it Just wanted to share and show how it went. It wasn't easy and I feel like I can get much much better at this with practice, but I'm still really happy with the final product and had a lot of fun with the process. Enjoy! Last week I came across a set of 1981 Titleist Tour Model irons (3-PW) that someone was selling for $40 on craigslist. I thought they looked super cool and I had been reading about club restoration before so it felt like a good opportunity to finally take the plunge and have a go at it. I met the guy selling them and he told me he had been playing them as his gamers for decades but finally upgraded to more forgiving / modern clubs since he was older and needed a bit of help with his game. I could tell when I saw the clubs that they were pretty banged up (lots of nicks and dings, dirty, dull, grips were very worn through, etc.) but the shape and bones of these old blades was still so sexy so I happily handed him $40 and took them off his hands. Here they are before I did anything to them. The first thing I did was give them a really thorough cleaning by washing them in hot, soapy water and scrubbing them with steel wool and Barkeeper's Friend. That alone worked wonders to bring back some of the shine and make them look better. Here they are after the deep cleaning (already a big improvement IMO, although they look shinier and better in this pic due to the sunlight than they really were). The next step was to grind out all the nicks and dings, then buff and polish them. Based on youtube videos I had watched, I knew I was going to need some sort of bench grinder or multitool to do this (neither of which I had), so I went to Home Depot and purchased the cheapest bench grinder I could find ($49). I also purchased a fine grit deburring wheel for it, a buffing wheel, a polishing wheel, and a small buffing compound kit (all of those were probably another $25-30). I went to work grinding the clubs with the deburring wheel to remove the nicks and dings, then worked through the polishing compounds with the buffing and polishing wheels. This phase of the process was really where the magic happened. Here are some side by side comparisons of a few clubs before these steps, and after: The deburring was the part that took the most skill and I think I could improve upon the most with more practice. I was able to get some of the nicks and dings out, but not completely and I think to do better, I would need a more coarse wheel, but then I would have to be careful to not grind away too much metal. It seems like a fine line to walk so that you can improve the look of the club but also not change the structure or weight at all. Overall, I'm very happy with how it turned out though. The next step was to remove all the old paint with acetone, and then do a fresh paint fill. This was pretty easy. I found that the old paint came right off with a little acetone and a gentle scrubbing with an old toothbrush. Then the paintfilling was super easy. I used black enamel paint, applied a couple coats, and let it dry for a day. Here they are after the fresh paint fill! The last step was to replace the grips. I could have bought old stock grips to restore their original look, but I am not planning on selling these or treating them as "collectibles", rather I want to actually play them occasionally, so I put on my preferred grips (Winn Dri-Tac). Grip replacement is pretty easy/standard if you've done it before, so I didn't take before/after grip pics, but... Here is the final product! I love em! That's that! Can't wait to hit them and see how much worse I am with 40 year old blades in hand! Hope you all enjoyed. Let me know if I should post any updates or more club restorations in the future - I enjoyed this and could see myself getting into it, especially as a fun covid hobby.
  3. Some equipment notes from Titleist on Jordan Spieth moving to the new T100 irons this week. Spieth adds NEW T100’s, testing NEW T200 long irons Before his flight to England last weekend, Jordan Spieth made an important packing decision, adding a new set of T-Series T100 irons to the bag. His prior generation T100’s stayed home in Dallas. At this week’s Open Championship, Spieth, who first experienced the final prototypes during a Titleist photo shoot the week of the AT&T Byron Nelson, will be playing the new T100 4-9 irons with True Temper Project X 6.5 shafts. He has also been testing new T200 2- (Graphite Design Tour AD D1 105 X) and 3- (True Temper Project X 6.5) irons this week at Royal St. George’s, and could take both of them to the first tee Thursday. It was at the Open Championship in 2019 that Spieth, an instrumental part of the development process for the Titleist Golf Club R&D team, made the switch to the original T100 models. Like 2019, he has spent the last couple weeks at home testing the new irons, dialing them in for competition, with Titleist’s Director of Players Promotions J.J. Van Wezenbeeck just a text or call away. “When we first introduced the new T100’s to Jordan in Dallas, he commented immediately on the look and feel, how well they went through the turf, and how consistently they were flying,” Van Wezenbeeck said. “Talking with him last week, as he was working through the set, he said his ball speeds were extremely consistent, and he was really happy from a visual standpoint.” Said Spieth, about seeing the new T100’s for the first time: “First thing you noticed is how they look, kind of the backside of the iron. You could see the color just kind of more matted out, and then a really clean back to it. Just very simple – stays looking almost like a blade with the forgiveness of a cavity back. “I don’t understand why you’d play any other iron to be honest,” Spieth said. “I joke around, ‘I’m not good enough to play the blades,’ but in reality, I think we’re just being smarter. I think we’re just like, ‘Oh, we can actually hit every shot that a blade can hit.’ But that chance that we mishit them – which we’re going to mishit a few shots in a round, even in a great round, the idea that it does carry that bunker and you make birdie on a hole where someone has to get up and down for par – I mean, it could be the difference in a tournament.” OTHER NOTES: • Spieth and Justin Thomas are two of several players testing NEW T200 long irons this week. Thomas, who traveled to England with a prior generation T-MB 2-iron, worked with Titleist European Tour Rep Liam McDougallin moving to a new T200 2-iron (True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100), which he tested during practice rounds, preferring the lower offset, look and feel. • Adam Scott has two NEW T100 3-irons in the bag this week – one built at a 2-iron loft and length, and the other at a standard 3-iron setup. He’s also moved back into a TSi4 driver (with Graphite Design Tour AD D1 7 X shaft), following a recent trip to the new Titleist Performance Centre at Woburn in England to work with Titleist European Tour Rep Liam McDougall. Said McDougall: “We moved Adam from TSi2 to TSi4 and went back to the Graphite Design shaft he was using when he won the Masters. The two marry up very well for him, getting his feels back to something he was familiar with while giving him the lower, right-to-left shot shape and consistency he was looking for this week.” “With the new T100’s, the way the sole goes through the links turf was very favorable to Adam’s delivery and flight requirements,” McDougall said.
  4. The set up T100s: 7-48* T200: 4,5,6 Project X LZ 6.5 (x-flex) 125g 2* upright Tour velvet. T100s (7,8,9,P,G) I was first drawn to the T100s because these irons look so freaking clean. I had no intention of buying a set, I just wanted to try and hit a club that I thought was out of my league. What I found however, was a relatively forgiving and extremely fun to hit set. To clarify, when I say forgiving, I don't mean your miss hits will be knocking down flags, and I don't mean your chunked shots will still be pin high. What I DO mean, is that if you catch it a little thin, or a bit on the toe, you're still gonna be in the hole. You may have to make a long putt or get up and down to save par, but you'll still be in play. its forgiving for the type of iron that it is. what I like most about these irons is the distance control. The speed feels consistent across the face (gross miss hits not included) and i have yet to have a ball rocket over the green because a particularly "hot" part of the club face. I was also impressed with how well the club moved through the turf, especially coming from a much wider soled set (jpx 825) If i had to nitpick the only compliant I have is that the pw and gw are 44 and 48, respecticly. I would have preferred 45 and 50. And i know the t100 is close to that, and I know I can bend them, but then we are messing the bounce, yadda yadda yadda. Final though on the T100s, they feel and look great, and if you are stuck between GI and players iron, I would suggest at the very least giving the T100s a few swings. T200 (4,5,6) The decision to use the T200 for the longer irons was a result of having a frank discussion with myself about my own skill level. The heads are a little bigger, soles wider, and they resist face manipulation a bit more. Couple that with stronger lofts and a hotter face and they fit the bill for what i need in my longer irons. Having never gamed the t200 short irons I can only speculate, but I don't know if I'd like the hotter face in my short irons. I did try the t200 and t100 7 irons back to back, and the extra pop from the T200 is very noticeable. The T200 also made painful noise on miss-hits, but its a small price to pay for keeping it in play. The Combo Set I am a huge fan of the split set, and am glad I went this route. There is no reason to have irons in your bag that you don't feel confident with. For me this meant using longer irons I know will launch high enough and straight enough, and shorter irons that are consistent and predictable. closing I think the T100s and the T200 are solid clubs, and i would recommend trying them if you are in the market for new irons.
  5. Congratulate the following testers: @Shankster @pooley7 @Jtom2012 @RTurcott @gregh729 @Gman24 @TCUFrog @wolfpacker92 @fozcycle @griecot313 @Mackdaddy9 @Tom D. @Peejer @Larryw @greggarner @scooterhd2 @twyatt700 @Clayton @BMart519 @myherobobhope @ZMendle10 @PingMD702 @GaDawg @McFly This test will be a significantly different and there will NOT be much follow up or final review since...well...the testers won't know what product they are reviewing. However, all comments and questions are welcome for the testers to answer as best they can! This test will be conducted by Titleist and their partners, however we are helping them find the right amount of testers - yes, you read that right, all 24 of them!! You will receive and be evaluating two different balls from Titleist (1-doz of each variety) and providing feedback directly to them about the performance of each ball. While this is not a development ball, you will be shipped a ball from their portfolio to evaluate its performance to your game...which could feed into future balls
  6. One of the more popular iron categories of recent years. One company did very well in this, not surprisingly! https://mygolfspy.com/2021-most-wanted-players-distance-iron/
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. CARLSBAD, Calif. (February 23, 2021) – The overwhelming most played and best performing wedges in the game – Vokey Design SM8 –are now available in an ultra-premium Slate Blue finish. Master Wedge Craftsman Bob Vokey has always stressed the importance of players having confidence in their wedge at address – and finish plays a key role. “A player has to love their wedge when they look down at it,” said Vokey, whose short game tools account for nearly half of all wedges played on the PGA Tour. The finish on the Vokey SM8 Slate Blue wedges is applied like a PVD finish, but with a unique material and more time intensive process that combine to provide a deep, rich slate blue color that is extremely durable. “Very often, wedge finishes can be beautiful, but they won’t last,” said Vokey. “At the same time, the most durable finishes often aren’t stunning. Slate Blue combines the two. Not only will golfers love their wedge when they see it in the shop, the finish will last through the course of normal play.” Consistent with all Vokey Design SM8 finishes, Slate Blue is available in all 23 loft, bounce, and grind options (both RH/LH), while supplies last. Slate Blue also incorporates the technology that sets SM8 wedges apart: Groundbreaking Progressive Center of Gravity (CG) pushed forward of the face for increased MOI, improved consistency and softer, more solid feel. 100% Inspected Spin Milled grooves that are cut with a level of precision that is unique by finish, producing maximum spin. Vokey Design SM8 models are also available in Tour Chrome, Brushed Steel, Raw and Jet Black finishes. For assistance determining the right loft, bounce and grind, golfers can use the Wedge Selector tool on Vokey.com: https://www.vokey.com/tools/wedge-selector-tool.aspx AVAILABILITY AND PRICING: Vokey Design SM8 Slate Blue wedges will be available in golf shops beginning Friday, March 19th (MAP $199). They will also be available for customization and purchase on Vokey.com. STOCK SHAFT AND GRIP: The Slate Blue stock setup features a True Temper Dynamic Gold S200 shaft and custom Blue/White BV Wings New Decade Multi Compound grip. Most custom shafts and grips are included at no up charge. Additional customizations such as character stamping are available for an additional fee. VISIT US ON THE WEB: www.vokey.com
  10. CARLSBAD, Calif. (February 17, 2021) – Building upon the overwhelming momentum and immediate success of the popular TSi2 and TSi3 metals, Titleist introduces the new, comprehensive TSi1 family, engineered for the moderate (less than 90 mph) swing speed player seeking increased club and ball speed with control off the tee and from the fairway. The moderate swing speed player represents approximately 30 percent of all golfers making the TSi1 metals an important offering to maximize their performance potential. The new TSi1 drivers, fairway metals and hybrids will be available for fittings beginning February 17 and in golf shops on February 26. TSi1 DRIVER: “With the new TSi1 driver, we focused on how to deliver even more speed than we did with the original TS1 for that player,” said Stephanie Luttrell, Titleist Director of Metalwood Development. “We maintained the launch, spin and draw bias, while successfully accomplishing our goal of increased club and ball speed with the combination of new aerodynamic head shaping, higher inertia and moving the CG closer to face center.” An Ultra-Lightweight 460cc driver, the TSi1 is almost 40g lighter than standard drivers. It is high launching with mid spin and is the most draw biased Titleist driver through CG positioning. By reshaping the head, engineers were able to move the CG closer to face center, which results in more ball speed versus the original TS1. “It's important that we look at the overall weight of the driver,” said Josh Talge, Vice President, Titleist Golf Club Marketing. “For this audience, the moderate speed player, they are going to perform better with a lower overall club weight. Secondly, it has all of the attributes of the TSi2 and TSi3 in terms of material, aerodynamics, and all of the CG locations, but we're doing it with a lighter weight head. The combination really gives that total performance to the player for whom it was developed.” Like the TSi2, TSi3 and TSi4 drivers, the TSi1 also features the 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. This new face construction has previously never been used in golf and helps produce the longest, straightest, best-looking, and best-sounding Titleist drivers ever. 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. “What I am most excited about, is the fact that this product absolutely takes Titleist speed to another level for the moderate speed player,” said Luttrell. “Not only does it deliver incredible trajectory, but it also maximizes the ball speed. And with its lightweight configuration, all those golfers are going to experience greater consistency, as well as maximizing their club speed.” TSi1 FAIRWAY METALS: “One of the things that we heard pretty regularly when we launched TS1, was golfers really liked it and they wanted a fairway to go with it,” said Talge. “We know this moderate swing speed player is a sweeper and needs help with launch, so we developed a low profile set of TSi1 fairway metals. Some of the moderate swing golfers we tested said they could never even play a fairway before they hit the new TSi1. They picked up speed, they picked up launch angle, and the mid-spin design kept the ball in the air longer.” The TSi1 fairway metals are a true lightweight setup – almost 50 grams lighter than standard fairway metals. This was accomplished by taking 10 grams of weight out of the head while maintaining the MOI at the same level as the TSi2 fairways. To accomplish that, the CG depth is positioned further back which contributes to higher launch. Like the driver, lightening up the overall weight for fairway metals delivers the club speed, brings more ball speed, and gives that player a lot more playability and consistency. “We have seen many tour players put higher lofted fairway metals, especially 7-woods, in the bag since the introduction of the TSi line,” said Talge. “While the TSi1 is not a tour product, the interest in them by players at the highest level has exposed an opportunity to expand to the moderate speed player and offer higher lofted fairways (15º, 18º, 21º, 23º), which we have never done before.” The TSi1 features an Aldila Ascent 40g lightweight shaft offering, a lightweight Golf Pride grip, and the head is 10g lighter. By taking 40 to 50 grams out of the overall club weight, the TSi1 is a perfect fairway metal option for slow to moderate swing speed golfers. TSi1 HYBRIDS: “The TSi hybrid is a totally new shape for Titleist,” said Talge. “This is the perfect complement to the lightweight TSi drivers and fairways. It has a bigger sole, the highest MOI, and is the most forgiving of any hybrid we’ve ever made. It has an extremely low CG and is 20 grams lighter than a standard hybrid.” The larger profile, ‘wood-type’ TSi1 hybrids are engineered to deliver high launch and mid-spin, and feature a 455 Carpenter Steel Forged Face. It also has a deeper CG for high MOI and exceptional stability and speed across the face. The Titleist TSi1 hybrids range in lofts from 20º to 29º. In testing, moderate swing speed players preferred it, especially when they were able to generate more club speed and more distance. TSi1 ULTRA-LIGHTWEIGHT CONFIGURATION: From clubhead to grip, TSi1 metals have been strategically engineered and weighted to deliver maximum launch and distance at moderate swing speeds. By bringing TSi technology into this extremely lightweight configuration and adding a slight draw bias, Titleist been able to produce dramatic benefits for this group of players. “Anytime you can give someone more clubhead speed, the ability for them to generate ball speed is there,” concluded Luttrell. “What separates TSi1 from other competitive lightweight metals is that we haven’t had to make sacrifices, particularly with MOI and adjustability. Everything about TSi1 - from the technology package, to the tour-inspired looks, to sound and feel – delivers on the promise of Titleist Speed for this family of metals.” TSi1 TECHNOLOGY & PERFORMANCE • Ultra-Thin Titanium Crown on TSi1 Driver. The thinnest cast titanium crown in the game allows weight to be redistributed for optimal driver performance at moderate swing speeds. • Streamlined Shapes. The aerodynamic designs reduce drag, allowing golfers to swing even faster for increased clubhead speed and more distance. • Optimized Weight Distribution. TSi1’s deep CG locations have been optimized to generate the launch and spin needed by moderate speed players to carry the ball farther, while maximizing off-center ball speed through high MOI properties. • Industry-leading adjustability. Titleist’s patented SureFit Hosel, featuring 16 independent loft and lie settings, provides additional ball flight optimization through precision fitting.

  11. WARNING: This is a somewhat lengthy post wherein I simply discuss some equipment changes and the reason behind them. I offer some data, but don't dive into launch monitor numbers or anything like that. I'm simply utilizing what knowledge I possess to make the game more enjoyable for myself and wanted to share my experience. Read on and comment if you'd like. I've been quite happy with my bag for some time now despite knowing that I've given up some distance and certain other luxuries. Finally, I decided it was time for a change and wanted to start with the driver. My Nike Vapor Pro w/ Aldila RIP a 60 shaft has been an absolute fairway finder compared to the drivers it replaced, but ball speed has always been a touch low. Having worked part-time at a golf course for 8 months gave me some time to demo a few clubs and I was impressed with the latest crop of Ping drivers. Of course, I don't have a ton of money to spend on equipment right now, but the pro had a Ping G LS Tec in 9* w/ Tour 65 Stiff shaft and sold it to me at his cost. I tried the G400 LST with the same shaft and it seemed like a real bomber so the G should be just as good. My mistake. My experiment with the Ping G failed miserably as it seemed to just spin too low and drop out of the air. During a test round where I alternated between my gamer and the G on each hole, the G found 1/7 (14%) fairways with a maximum total distance of 247 yards and an average of 232. Meanwhile, my Vapor managed 5/7 (57%) fairways with a max of 282 and an avg of 245. As it happens, slow play caused me to join up with a twosome on the 11th hole and one of the gentlemen offered to let me try his G25 after describing my experience with the G. I don't know what loft he handed me or what flex the shaft was - just that it was the stock TFC 189. It took one swing for me to realize that not only was the G a mistake, but my trusted Vapor as well. Fast forward a little bit and the G is gone - sold on eBay and shipped it off just today - and I have a 9.5* G25 sitting in my bag with the TFC 189 in stiff flex and an Aldila RIP a 60 to experiment with as well. I took the G25 out on Wednesday and played 18 - 9 holes with the TFC and 9 holes with the Aldila. Over 18 holes I managed 9/14 (64%) fairways with a max of 299 (off the very first tee in soft conditions) and an avg of 253. Looking at each shaft individually, I hit one more fairway with the Aldila than with the TFC, but average distance with the stock shaft was 266 yards vs. 241. More surprising to me was how incredible the TFC felt throughout the swing and at impact compared to the Aldila that I'm so fond of in my Vapor Pro. In keeping with the theme of mistakes I've made, I've never been satisfied with my Vapor Flex fairway wood and the Vapor Flex hybrid has been touch and go since day one. So, now on order is a Titleist 906F2 w/ Alidla NV 75 Stiff (best fairway I've ever owned and should not have gotten rid of) as well as a Titleist 585 hybrid w/ NV 85 (testing required but definitely prefer the feel over my Nike). To top it all off, i have finally decided to make the switch from Game Golf Live to Arccos 360. I've long held the position that I would never use Arccos as long as it required having my phone on me at all times, but I've grown tired of waiting for Game Golf to release the new "Pro" version or even release more details. Likewise, their user interface for both the app and the website have gotten long in the tooth. So that's it. Those are the changes I will be making and hopefully this is the setup I will continue to play until I can finally afford to get custom fit for a complete new set. Staying in the bag are my Vapor Pro Combo irons (4-PW), Vokey SM5 wedges (52, 56, 60), and my beloved Scotty Futura 6M. Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed!

  14. The recommendation in another thread, to buy TaylorMade TP5's, aroused my curiosity about Titleist Practice Pro V1s. First, they actually state their balls are cosmetically imperfect, but go on to emphatically state there are no performance issues or irregularities in their balls. However, I'm curious if all the balls in a given box are the same model. Would they all be Pro V1 or do they mix in the Pro V1x, as well? Also, are they all the same, current model; or could they be a variety of versions of the ball? I'm not interested in owning them, I have quite enough stock on hand. Anyone familiar with the product?
  15. 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.

Moderate swing speed players will benefit from Straight Flight Weighting (SFW) technology, which promotes straight flight in lightweight driver shaft options (KURO KAGE Black Dual Core 50 and TENSEI AV Raw Blue 55). • Graphite Design’s premium offerings include three of the most coveted shaft models on tour and throughout the golfing world – Graphite Design Tour AD DI, Graphite Design Tour AD IZ and Graphite Design Tour AD XC (Xtra Carry) – engineered with aerospace-quality carbon-fiber materials for incredible stability, consistency and feel. • In addition, Titleist offers an industry-leading number of custom shaft choices. 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. TaeHoon Kim was the first Titleist player to win with a TSi driver when he captured the Korean PGA Tour’s Genesis Championship with a TSi2 (9.0), as well as a TSi2 (15.0) fairway metal.

  16. Hey guys, Used to play in high school, very on and off since then (20plus years ago). I've played enough this year to get myself back to a 3 handicap. There are some clubs in the bag that were given to me by a tour pro and maybe I shouldn't be gaming them but they just look and feel great so I'm keeping them in the bag. I also do have a set of Miura CB501's (4-PW) that I'm currently not gaming.

  17. 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!
  18. Hello, I am trying to decide between the Titleist Premium Stand Bag 2020 and the Ping Hoofer Tour. Both bags are similar and inspired by the tour staff bags from my understanding. I really like the looks of them and I have tried to find reviews and pictures but can't seem to see enough actual/in-hand photos from people who have used these so I am seeking any insight/info anyone can share about them. I walk with a pushcart and take a cart occasionally. Thanks for any/all information ya'll can share!
  19. So I recently had 2 fittings: T100 Pw-6 + T200 5-4 w/ px 6.0 T100S Pw-4 w/ px 6.0 + 50* SM8 w/ px 6.0 The T100 5-4 irons are the same lofts as the T200 6-5 irons. Would the T200 6-5 irons 0.50" longer fit the gap better than the T200 5-4 bent? Obviously it would be so weird having two 6 irons but I am just curious if anyone has tested this at all? Or would bending the T200 5-4 irons be a better option? Another option would obviously be to just go with the stronger lofted T100S so that the T200 fits in easier or just go full T100S, I just don't need to hit it any further and I would have to re gap my wedges. Thoughts? note: Currently playing R9 TP irons which are 1* weaker than the regular t100's. R9 TP also has more forgiving 5-4 irons which is why I kind of like the idea of getting T200 in my 5-4.
  20. So I have hinted about this in the What Are You Thinking About threads. But today it became a reality. I can honestly say these are the best looking irons I’ve ever owned. I’ve owned a set or two along the way. But nothing comes close to these in the looks department. When black irons came into vogue a few years ago, i loved the look immediately. I never saw the right set to pull the trigger on though. I was close earlier this year with the G710 Black, but it was early in the year, then Covid hit and I held off. Then Titleist announced these in early August. I knew they were coming but had to keep my excitement and news under wraps. By then i was “testing” out something else. Finally earlier this month I was ready and got with some reps did some local shaft testing—more later on that—and I was ready to rock So Ill follow this post with some more pics and some early thoughts, but will update the thread regularly on my experience with them. Feel free to treat this as you would a regular forum test threads , with any questions or things you’d like to see This will be fun!
  21. Alright guys, tell me what you think of this setup! Really liking this set, but may take out the T-100 irons for Mizuno MP20 blades in the 6-P and HMB in 4-5.
  22. The ball lab report for ProV 1 is on the home page, here is a link to it. As expected the ProV1 scored very well in every category across the board. Share your thoughts below! https://mygolfspy.com/ball-lab-2019-titleist-pro-v1/
  23. Its been awhile but its finally time for me to post an update to my WITB for my 2nd year as a Professional. NOTE* I will be testing the HONMA TR20 440 DRIVER so come join the thread & see if it will be helping me win some tournament money this year or if it gets left in the car. Current Bag & Specs are the following: Driver: Titleist TS3 8.5* - Diamana D+Plus Limited Edition 70X, Tipped 1" 3 Wood: Titleist TS3 14.25* - Diamana D+Plus Limited Edition 80X Driving Iron: Titleist U500 17* - HZRDUS Smoke 90X Long Irons (4-6): Titleist T100S (21*, 25*, 29*) - KBS C-Taper 130X Short Irons (7-PW): Titleist 620MB (33*, 37*, 41*, 45*) - KBS C-Taper 130X 50* Wedge: Vokey SM7 F.12 - DG X100 55* Wedge: Vokey SM7 S.11 - DG X100 60* Wedge: Vokey SM7 M.08 - DG X100 Putter: Evnroll ER2 - P2 Aware Tour Ball: Titleist ProV1 Yellow #3 Glove: Under Armour Strikeskin Tour Bag: Titleist Hybrid 14
