Titleist TS2 & TS3 Driver Thread


Recommended Posts

Those are awesome numbers in my book.  No reason to not have it in the bag.
How was the dispersion?  That's what I really look at.  Does it stay in play?  Can I find it & hit it again?  
Once I put a shaft in that worked for me dispersion was fantastic. I was a little wild be with the speeder and evenflow. Whiteboard was extremely consistent. Definitely bag worthy.

Played my first two rounds with my TS2 last week in FL.   After some initial work on fixing s swing flaw that had crept in, I drove the heck out of the ball.  Played with our Superintendent who is usu

A quick observation today... This morning at the club I tried the TS2 and the Cortex before playing. The TS2 was an 11.5* with Tensei Blue-S and the Cortex was an 10.5* with a Blue-R shaft of som

Great range session today. I guess you can say that I'm getting along pretty well with the TS2 and the Evenflow White

Unfortunately no. The week prior I hit the m3 on an indoor gc2 and carry was average 265yrd. I'm not sure on the accuracy between the two.

All depends on if the GC2 had a set smash.

went to test drivers yesterday and landed on the top 3 of Ts2, Epic Flash and Cobra f9. I know from past testing my swing speed is in the 83-90 range , but mostly 85-87.

Cobra f9 my dispersion was everywhere, I was getting good for me distance (220-230 yrds) but barely could hit the fairway. I did step on it for one and it went 251 longest of the test. 

Epic Flash  dispersion was amazing, easy to find when they are in the fair way and was able to get over 225-230 consistently.

The ts2 dispersion was amazing like the epic flash, distance … aided by what felt like the ball rolled for ever over 235 and 2 of the 10 over 245.. off center hits still stayed in the fairway. Swing speed went up to 89 and got a couple over 90. 

Left with a new Ts2 driver 9.5 set to 10.25 , tensei blue reg flex shaft.  I have tried a lot of drivers in the last few years but this one is by far the best fit for me.

TS2 is the driver choice for me!! Went in to a local Puetz golf store in Seattle with the intent to purchase a new driver, specifically the G410 or the Taylormade M6. After hitting both of these and not really liking the sound of either sweet spot hit - if it doesn't sound good, then homey don't play that! - the fitter handed me the TS2 to try out. I told him that I wasn't interested but he insisted, and I'm glad that he did! Numbers were off the charts: increased head speed by 6mph over the other two (102mph); dispersion was super tight; distance was on average better, with the long being 312yds; the spin avg was 2235; and, the sound was amazing! Needless to say, I walked out with the TS2 with the Tensei Blue stiff shaft. I've since upgraded to a UST Mamiya VTS Black in 6SX and my results are even better now than before! Love this club!!! FYI, did try the TS3 but set-up and feel weren't the same as the TS2.

I have been able to get a couple rounds under my belt with my new TS3 and so far this has been great.  Hitting many more fairways that I have in a long time and really being able to control my ball much more.  Getting my confidence back in my driver so that I can take more advantage of my length.  It's a lot more fun playing from the fairway.  Also, I've noticed that my distance dispersion has gotten better as well.  With my old Taylormade M2, I could be anywhere from 265 to 315 when I really bomb one.  Now, it seems like I have a tighter window and can rely on a solid 255 carry and get anywhere from 280 - 295 on most drives.

Some of this is a properly fitted shaft as well and I have felt very comfortable with my Fujikura Pro 2.0 Tour Spec.

I played yesterday in Memphis and after two holes with the TS3, I learned I’d be playing the round with a fade. I started aiming left of the fairway and the balls were landing dead-center! Once I started this, I finished the round with that aim and I only missed two more fairways the rest of the way. Aiming OB, or into trees was nerve-wracking at the start, but it worked. I hit a couple of power-fade bombs for the first time in my life! Fun!

It’s what I wanted from my fitting, but it’s the first time it’s REALLY worked. I just hope it continues and doesn’t change back-and-forth.

If you are aiming that far left and getting the ball to end up in the fairway you are using the term power fade very loosely. Most would call that a slice

To be fair, we don't know how close the OB/water is to the fairway.

Well, if you saw the holes that are lined with trees, fairways about 30 yards wide, maybe you’d think otherwise. I think I know the difference between a fade and a slice, thank you.

Sheesh.

30 yard wide fairways, aiming off the fairway and ball moving to the middle is 15+ yards. That’s not a fade imo and vice versa for draws.

As long as it finds the fairway who cares what it's called? If you know it and can do it that's a good shot in my book.

I say this as a former hooker and current hooker who would love to move it the other way

Hmmm. Then your definition definitely isn’t the same as Pros. A slice is uncontrolled, and doesn’t carry 280.........................

Neither does a hook. I’ll stick with how the Pros define it. You’re welcome to have your own definition. Enjoy!

I know lots of weekend hackers that control a slice to come back to the fairway.

Theres not a pro I know of that consider 15+ yards of movement either direction a fade or draw. They prefer 3-5 at the most. 

But like with all things golf there’s lots of ways to skin the cat and play this game at an enjoyable level

Why wouldn't you use the club to correct the fade or slice (whatever you want to call it)?  Isn't that the point of adjustability?  Especially the TS3 that has more options than the TS2.  Why rely on the fade to come back a certain amount each time ... hoping that it does?  Use the club to correct it

But if it's consistent, why does it matter? Bubba hits huuuge slices, but he knows they'll come back and hit the fairway. It doesn't really matter how much movement there is if it's controlled. And it sounds like a big hook is the miss here, and this ball flight is taking it out of play.

While he may be getting 280 out of it the ball flight characteristics aren’t optimal and a change in weather would have an impact on the ball.  Also it may be consistent for that round or a couple rounds but a change in face and/or path could be trouble.

1) bubba is a pro and has tremendous hand eye coordination and club face control compared to amateurs including internet ones. 2) bubba hits a shot that he needs/sees at the moment so it can be a small movement or a big one but it’s one he practices 3) when bubba misses its normally a big miss

I guess we are just going to have to agree to disagree here. If I had a 15 yard cut/slice that was a consistent fairway finder, I'd take it.
