Titleist TS1 Coming In June

Spoke to a friend that is a Titleist fitter, and either June or July he will be going to golf courses to do fittings for Titleist staffers with new irons. Didn't tell me anything about them, just that they were coming.

Most likely it will be the Travelers in CT after the US Open, this is a tournament and timeframe that Titleist has used in the past for tour seeding, with retail release coming in September.   Although based on the hybrid and utility iron news of today, it's not impossible they move the time frame up a bit.

They introduced the drivers at the US Open last year and I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t see the new irons and maybe the ts1 there although not sure the pga is the market audience for ts1

Just spent about 30 minutes on the Trackman outside with a M6 12.0 loft Evevnflow Sr. Shaft.   Swing speed averaged right at 84.3. 

So sounds like the TS1 will be right up my alley.   Looking forward to it coming in in a couple weeks.

On another note, the M6 was really good on some mishits. It actually surprised me, i had a couple very solid hell strikes and the ball never wavered off line right down the left center of the fairway, might have lost 5 to 10 yards of carry.    I had chalked TwistFace up to a gimmick.   But perhaps it's real.

Exactly!!  I think we have a great number of members that this would be a great Forum Testing opportunity for.   I'm not saying it will happen.   But it won't be for lack of trying 😎

You going to give up your Ping for this??

Definitely Not.  It'll just be something nice to sit in the extra bag, and take out now and then.   Unless it magically gives me 20 more yards then, we might be talking.   But I know enough that at my SS the distance is pretty much maxed out.

What if it gives you better dispersion?

I'm at a Titleist Demo day this Friday, I was hoping this would be there but maybe not if it's a few weeks away from release. Dang!

So it's heeeeerrrre!!   The highly anticipated----well by me anyway  TS1 driver.  Touted for Slow swing speeds--85 mph range--Titleist's has gone all in with this awesome looking and feeling driver to deliver a bit more club head speed.

It has reduced the head weight to 275 grams from 300'ish range of the TS2.   Also the Fubuki 45g shaft and lighter grip by I believe 20 grams.

In my configuration I went even more--old slow swinger style--For the first time in my life, i ordered a Senior flex shaft.   I had hit a senior flex at the PING demo day a couple months ago and really liked the feel of the shaft "whipping" through impact.   But alas I already had my G410 plus in R in hand.

So what time better than when a driver that is touting being as light as possible, than to try the Sr. flex in it.

So vitals:

10.5 loft, almost went with 12, but figured it can be lofted up if I need to.

Fubuki 45g A (Sr) MV Series shaft  45.75"  which is equal to the G410+  BTW

The driver does not have moveable weights ala the G410, but does have some internal draw weighting, and a weight in the back center of the sole, to promote a higher flight.

I wrote some yesterday in the what did you buy thread, about my short initial testing on the SC200.   The upshot was I picked on the low side of 4 MPH in clubspeed and on a couple occasions over 7 and 8 mph.  

Also to me one of the most impressive things, was the ball flight.  It was a very high flight that took very little effort to obtain.  I think this along with the extra MPH no doubt played a factor in the 8 to 10 yards more carry I was seeing over the G410 even with a bit less of a smash factor (according to the SC200) the couple that I did equal the 143 range of smash factor carried 15 or more yards.    

Also the two other nice things I noticed.   The sound, while I don't have a problem with the G410 sound as some do, the TS1 has a distinctly Titleist crack to it.   While I'm sure it absolutely does not, but the sound makes it seems like it adds another 10 yards itself....HA    The other thing was what appeared to be a good 25 yards of roll out.   Now some of this can be attributed to the firm turf we have right now, due to any real significant rainfall the past week.  

Well there will be more to come, especially with trackman numbers and real round updates.   But this could really be a very viable option for those slower swing speed players, who want to maybe get out of the mid 80's and into the low 90's at the least.

One final note, our superintendent stopped by....Initially to see who was on the side of the course that was supposed to be closed in anticiation of a shotgun start going out in about an hour.    When he saw it was me, and saw the LM and multiple clubs and sleeves of balls on the tee box, he just laughed and said....What now?

Well he is a very good driver of the ball, and has a rock solid 94-95 mph swing,.   His first two swings with it registered 98 mph and 239 yards of carry, compared to his usual 225 or so with his M6.   Even with the A flex shaft, he was able to control it and all four shots he hit, were dead straight with a nice high flight.   So that is said, to say this may not only be good for the mid 80's crowd, but even those in the 90's who want a few more MPH should give it a look as well maybe with an R or S shaft though.

No doubt it's pretty cool that Titleist is putting a club out there for those of us whose swing speed has declined. I  believe this particular driver will be a big hit with the old generation plus those who physically can't generate swing speed.  How much are these beauties going for?

I think $500 retail.   While I think you are 100% correct that it will help a lot of Seniors and others who have lost speed.  I just hope that those same golfers give it a chance.  I can't tell you how many times I've heard some of my friends and players at our club say "I'm not good enough to play a Titleist club"   That was true maybe 10 years ago, heck maybe even 5.  But it has changed so much in the past few years.   Titlesit realized that and has a really solid line of clubs good for anyone from scratch to 25 handicap.

So here's hoping they have great success with it.

Seniors will pay more attention if Titleist spends part of their marketing on the golden crowd. . They will also pay attention if  these start showing up in the hands of seniors at the local level.

Now we just need the TS5, a 400cc option, and TS6 a 380cc, TS7... maybe a TS8 and 9 too.

Then, instead of a TS10, they'll just call it TENS
