  1. 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
  2. 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.

  4. Testers Wanted (4) For the longest time all golf clubs were steel shaft and that was that. Then driver and fairway wood shafts started appearing in graphite and that slowly took over as the primary, and finally only, shaft material for those clubs. Irons followed suit, a bit later offering graphite and that has continued to evolve into some pretty high tech offerings. This put golfers in the position of having to choose accordingly: the consistency of steel or the light weight and extra distance of graphite. Enter the world of steel/hybrid composite shafts offering the best of both materials. First these appeared in irons and then they made their way to the driver and eventually into putter shafts. So what was missing? Hybrids of course! Hybrids are often neglected among clubs; getting little respect and often overlooked for their perceived faults: a hook bias, tough to hit off the turf, not accurate, and so on. Well Nippon is providing hybrids the respect they have been lacking. With the new GOST: Graphite On Steel Technology, they have created a shaft that allows the hybrid to launch high—as it's designed to—and have tighter dispersion and be more accurate than the typical graphite shaft, something you want for those long approaches into greens. So we are giving four forum members—US Residents Only—a chance to test, review and keep one of these shafts and report back to the forum their findings. Doing so will require a commitment of putting the hybrid in play on the course and at the range and providing ongoing commentary in the forum throughout the process.

  6. I've played golf my whole life with hand-me-down sets. Now that I'm getting serious about playing, I bought some nice clubs. Let me know what you think. Driver: Adams Blue 3-wood: Adams XTD-TI Hybrid 20,23: Adams XTD-TI Irons: Mizuno JPX 900 HotMetal Cleveland wedges Putter: Superstroke Fatso I am loving my irons and woods so far. I decided to go with super forgiving clubs, and I'm glad I did. I was custom fitted this time around at my local golf shop. The SuperStroke putter is my favorite club. I've attached a picture. I fell in love with it after reading a MyGolfSpy review from back in 2011, and just had to have one. Problem was: they were selling on Ebay for like 300 bucks! I was able to contact SuperStroke directly and their customer service found a few in the warehouse.
  7. As part of what's dubbed on Facebook 24 hours of XTD. Looks like Adams has launched a more in-depth experience for the XTD line. http://www.adamsgolf.com/xtd/
  8. I didn't realize when we were at the TM center last Nidine took some cool SLDR Rescue pics. So just because it's Friday, here ya go! Oh and BTW these feel great!
