2020 Official Member Review: Titleist TSi Drivers


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

My course was closed for a tournament this weekend.  I decided to have some fun on the range “testing” the TSi2 against one of my previous gamers:  the Ping Eye 2 (cir. 1984).

 

Here are the two contenders:IMG_5134.jpg.59f78348258c6ef70926705d35cd7f63.jpg

When I got the Ping Eye 2, I remember thinking how big the club head looked compared to my persimmon driver.  My how times have changed.  It now looks miniscule next to the contemporary driver.  

IMG_5135.jpg.fbde09d56c9899a96aa547ae2e792fb1.jpg

There are no markings on the Ping shaft, only a sticker with the Ping logo and address on it. The shaft on the Ping is 1 and ½ inch shorter than the Titleist.  For fun, I decided to grip down on the Titleist by 1 and ½ inches to take shaft length out of the equation.   

IMG_5136.jpg.e905102debdd60b9dee867326f5b2979.jpg

Besides the size of the club head, the weight of the club jumped out.  The Ping is a much heavier club.  (Sorry, I don’t have a scale here in Florida to provide the exact weight difference.)

 

 

On to the “test.”  I hit five drives with the Titleist TSI2, collecting the data on my launch monitor.  I then hit a few drives with the ping to get used to the club and to figure out how high to tee the ball.  I then hit five drives with the Ping using the launch monitor.  

 

The results:

 

Average swing speed:  Titleist +6.6 MPH.

Average ball speed:  Titleist +10.8 MPH.

Average smash factor was about the same.

Average carry distance:  Titleist +23.2 yards.  

 

(My launch monitor only has carry distance, not total distance.)

 

Best shot v. best shot:  Titleist +21 yards.  

 

Worst shot v. worst shot:  Titleist +21 yards.  

Worst shot Titleist v. best shot Ping:  Ping +10.

 

There you have it, proof positive that Titleist makes a better driver than Ping. 🙂

 

It was fun to find out how much technology has added to my distance.  An average increase of 23.2 yards carry is nothing to sneeze at.  I would probably need to move up a set of tees if I was playing the older equipment.  A 23.2 yard improvement over 36 years.  Balls hit with the Titleist also seemed to run out more than balls hit with the ping, but I couldn't measure it to be sure.   

 

Now, back to your regularly scheduled program.

Nearly $800 for a driver???  C'mon ... that's getting out of hand.  

Not to me. It’s the going price these days for a completely fitted driver with an aftermarket, upcharge shaft, and $800 is a STEAL. To each their own

Do you keep all of your previous clubs as you upgrade? I’ve never paid full retail for anything, technically, because I sell what just got beat out of the bag... An $800 driver is, at most, $600... If there are multiple old clubs, shafts, etc, it’s even less. The Honma TR20 with upgraded Ventus Black shaft cost me less than $350... I sold my other stuff that was never going to be used again since it wasn’t as good as I just bought. 
Anyway, just a thought. And also, Mrs. Nut might need to know that the cost of new clubs won’t ever be $400 at retail again, new release, upgraded shaft. 

But, alas, to each their own...

It's my own fault because I keep practically everything I've owned.  I rarely sell anything back because I do a lot of tinkering.  I always go back to old equipment.  

I even played this the other day .... it's old .... circa 1998.  And that's just the beginning of what's in the Nut Cave

Well, then Mrs. Nut not liking $800 drivers is justified when you have so many laying around, and you even use them all. Tsk, tsk....

So much lost revenue there.... 😢

Got in a early 9 w only 2 Par 4’s.
TSi2 driver is about as forgiving as it gets, no doubt about it. Hit 2 Tee shots 1st was off center toe and it had a little fade but decent distance, 2nd was nutted and it’s definitely longer than G410.
I’m still getting used to the new shaft and adjustments.

To tie into robs question the distance difference is in total distance correct?

have you had a chance to do any testing on a monitor since the shaft switch to compare numbers between the ping and tsi?

I was going to ask this too.

Got on the Trackman today and hit a lot of shots to compare between the SIM Max and the TSi 2. I will be including this data in my final review.

Yes, it’s definitely the weight or lack of that makes the difference. Still fooling with the RH/LH SURE FIT adjustments.
Going to range tomorrow morning to get more swings in.
Felt lousy all afternoon, temperature still normal so not C19.

My official review is up! I hope at least one person can walk away with some insight. Next time, I'm investing a launch monitor of some sort so I can get a little more in-depth with the numbers!

@TSauer Tyler, when we chose you for this test, i knew one thing we could count on would be stellar photos.   You did not disappoint my man!!  The way you captured the face was si good. Those are some amazing shots and staging. 
 

Great read on the review as well. Very detailed look at all aspects

Titleist TSi3 – Official MGS Forum Review by TSauer

Intro

Good afternoon, hope y’all are staying safe and having a great holiday season!

Let me kick this off by introducing myself, I am Tyler. I am a tall southpaw golfer from Missouri who started golfing about 5 or so years ago and have managed to get my handicap down to around 10, hoping to break into the single digits in the coming year. I live in a small town of 1,500 with a member owned course, and I am there about every day when the weather cooperates.

 

Here is a shot from my drone of my local course: Pine Ridge GC

118082490_10158361094290803_1116996708496789884_o.jpg.f0cb256d7cb18e6c10e28793f158c058.jpg

 

I am slowly but surely starting to piece together each part of my golf game, and the driver is the one club I struggled with the most... but it is finally coming around. I have adopted the motto slow is smooth, smooth is fast into my swing and it has really helped. My driver swing speed usually clocks in around 100-105 with a total distance between 250-260. Sometimes it is a little more, sometimes a lot less. It all depends on how the golf gods treat me that day. For me, I just like to hit the fairway. I will take accuracy over distance any day of the week and that is my main goal when I am on the tee box with driver in hand. To get to that fairway, I like to play a small fade. I have never been able to hit a consistent draw and when I try, I end up with the hooks, so I gave up and just play what comes naturally to me. Now that I have become more comfortable with the driver, I’ve been able to shoot lower scores and not be intimidated by those par 5’s and longer par 4’s where the driver is needed… because let’s be honest, I’m always pulling out the driver every chance I get. I recently just switched drivers from the G400 Max (which I loved) to the TSI’s new contender, a Callaway Mavrik. I hit the Mavrik well, so this bout will be a good one. I’m looking for something that will reward me even when my swing isn’t the best and the middle of the club face isn’t getting it’s money worth.

 

First Impressions

Let’s really unwrap this review…

unnamed.gif.7a1de0f84e765c3fe7b0078ed116f107.gif

My first thought of the TSi3 is… classic*. No turbulators. No wild colors. No matte finish. No carbon fiber. Just a gloss black with a TSi logo for alignment. It is different for me, but I do not mind it. Every driver I have ever owned has had one of the previously mentioned attributes, so this is a change for me. When I think of Titleist as a whole, the word classy comes to mind, and I think that’s just how they wanted to keep the looks of this line.

IMG_5998-2.jpg.e66e4332f65721ed974e21cf1db4234d.jpg

 

IMG_5995-2.jpg.d7a022f5bb4cce07199cd2281596344e.jpg

As for the bottom of the club, I am loving it. They kept everything very simple and very sleek. You get a nice combo of gloss black, matte black, and a chrome strip that puts the cherry on top. We also have the addition of the new SureFit GC technology which allows the players to adjust the weight into five different positions to fine tune their ball flight. You can move the weight from Neutral to Toe 1 and Toe 2, as well as Heel 1 and Heel 2. Combine this with the SureFit neck adjustability and you have more than a handful of combinations you can create to dial in your club. I always strayed away from these types of drivers, as I felt the more tinkering I did the worst off I would be… but I am very interested this year and curious to see what kind of combo I end up with.

IMG_6007-2.jpg.d64992b09e3810e441942057d9486c18.jpg

If you noticed earlier when I mentioned classic there was an asterisk at the end. I put that there because the only thing that isn’t traditional is the face. My first thought when seeing it was Cobra and it reminded me of their CNC milled face they now have on their drivers. However, Titlelist is using an ATI 425 aerospace titanium and it has never been used before by Titleist or any other brand for that matter. This is supposed to increase ball speed across the face no matter the point of contact. I feel like this is something we hear every year from manufacturers… new face tech, few more yards, more forgiving. Will it live up to its expectations? I am really hoping so. I do not know about you but hitting the center of the face every shot is something I’ve only ever dreamt of. If this new face material means I’m going to be a long way from the tee box and still in the fairway on mishits… then we are going to become best friends.

IMG_5979.jpg.63057fe029983ba1b50caf5b026ae84f.jpg

I went with the Tour AD IZ 6 – S shaft, as it was closest to what I currently game and offered what I needed for my game; something to keep the ball out of the wind and produce more penetrating shots. The shaft itself has a very stealthy look to it with the white/orange accents alongside the matte black finish. This is a mid-launching shaft and will hopefully assist me with getting those lower ball flights and better roll out.

IMG_6009-2.jpg.77f3b39588da30d0619666ac4a4fcb1a.jpg

Ready for another fun fact? Aside from Vokey wedges, this is the first piece of Titleist equipment that I have had in my bag, and I have some high expectations. For those of you who read through some of the chatter that has been going on in the review thread, you may have saw that I was unfortunately not able to get fit and I based my current setup off a previous fitting/setup. I figured I would assume the role of the average golfer who buys direct from the shelf. There are a couple of things I am looking for in this driver, the first being forgiveness. I fully expect their new face technology to deliver good shots even though the center was not struck. I am also expecting a lower, more penetrating ball flight compared to that of the Mavrik/G400 Max. If the result is not those two things combined, then the driver will be passed on.

One perk about living in a small town is that the golf course is rarely ever crowded and most evenings I have the entire course to myself. This is a huge plus because most of my testing will be done on course, as I do not have access to any high-end launch monitors or anything of the such. The testing will consist of a combination of full rounds, putting it head-to-head against the Mavrik with two balls off the tee, one for each. Besides that, I will be hitting the range and making adjustments with the SureFit to dial in the head and shaft until I reach a ball flight I am happy with.

Like I said, this is the first piece of Titleist gear I have hit and here’s to hoping they live up to their name.

 

Grading

This is where the showdown begins.....

IMG_5968-2.jpg.a7993f2fdce3436079ef89be7bfd726d.jpg

Looks – 6/10

I thought I would be more of a fan of the classic black look than what I am. I’m not saying it’s bad, but everyone has their own taste and style, and for me I like a little bit of pizazz… something to make it pop a little more and standout. I don’t need bright, bold colors, but maybe some sort of carbon finish similar to the Mavrik would have been a little more appealing to me. I do enjoy the classic head shape and easy alignment aid, I felt as there weren’t a lot of distractions going on when looking down at the club.

Sound & Feels – 10/10

 

 

For me, this is one of the best sounding drivers I have hit. The YouTube clip above says it all. A very soothing ping sound that I just replayed about 20 times when linking that video. It SOUNDS SO GOOD! When it comes to feel, I can say this… you’ll know when you hit the center because the ball launches like a rocket and it feels oh so great! There were a few times it felt as if I didn’t even hit a ball, it was so smooth. When it come to mishits, it doesn’t feel quite as good but in my case I could not really tell until I looked at the face and realized I was that far off from center.

 

Basic Characteristics – 18/20

 I have really been enjoying the flight I have been getting with this club and setup. Lots of mid/lower launching trajectories and piercing flights… something that I’m not used to seeing but have always been searching for. I’ve been able to control that fade that I like and have adjusted the SureFit to H2 to keep things that way. As far as distance goes, I am getting about the same distance as I was with the Mavrik, except mishits with the TSi perform a lot better and still end up being pretty good shots that I am happy with. My Mavrik mishits weren’t terrible, but I can tell that the TSi just edged it and performed a hair better in that area. I’m loving all of the customization, it makes it easy to dial it in and get the club to work for you. I will say the 16-way hosel does get a little confusing when you’re looking at their chart, but it gets easier to comprehend the more you look at it.

On-Course / LM Performance – 27/30

I can sum up this category in just a couple of words… it performs. I was finding myself hitting more and more fairways and leaving myself in great positions for those next shots to the green. Like I mentioned before, I had very high expectations of Titleist and they met and exceeded every one of them. It’s definitely made stepping on the tee box a little less intimidating. I enjoy how easy it is to adjust the weight on the club and they should definitely continue that tradition on models to come. The one thing that I can’t decide on if I like or not is the SureFit hosel adjustments. There are so many different routes you can go when adjusting this that it can get confusing if you were to just grab one off the shelf without getting fitted. I personally enjoy the simpler hosels that allow you to change just the loft by a degree in both directions.

 

Miscellaneous – 7/10

I don’t have much to say here, but I did have to knock some points for not receiving any hosel adjust tool in the box. I know that most of those tools are the same, but it would have been nice to have one from the manufacturer in the box, this is the first time I’ve ever received a club like this without one. I tried to reach out to Titleist through several means but was never able to reach anyone.

 

Play it or Trade it? – 18/20

Short and sweet? The Mavrik is already out of the bag for me. Now, I’m not saying this will cure all of your ailments, but for me it was a big enough difference between the two to justify the TSi taking the Mavriks place. Would I go out and spend $550 on a brand new driver? Personally, I would not. I have a hard time justifying that much money on a single club. Then again, that all depends on your financial situation and whether or not your significant other will kick you out of the house after seeing another long, brown box on the porch.

 

Conclusion

So this is it. Did the Titleist TSi3 live up to the hype and live up to the Titleist name of everything I thought it would be? Absolutely. Aside from the simple, plain look of the head, I really enjoy what Titleist has done with this new lineup. I would love if they added a little more spice to the look, but to each their own. I find the club really fun to hit, even when not hit well… which is sometimes more often than not. I can see this club living in my number one slot for a few years to come. I will also be eyeballing other Titleist gear in the many months to come!

 

Final Score – 86/100

 

Awesome shots awsome review. Love the drone shot and the 2nd picture of the face wow....detail is all I can say, I have not see. Pictures like that even in the titleist roll out.

love the honesty and glad you’re hitting those fairways often. I am really surprised the tool was not in there and had no luck with contacting them. 
 

nice work!

Great work [mention]TSauer [/mention]! Nice read and great photos.

Like you I enjoy the classic looking ones but just seem to enjoy something with a bit of character a little better. Glad it’s performing for you though! That’s what is most important!

Yes, it’s definitely the weight or lack of that makes the difference. Still fooling with the RH/LH SURE FIT adjustments.
Going to range tomorrow morning to get more swings in.
Felt lousy all afternoon, temperature still normal so not C19.

Just read this - take care of yourself - temp is only one symptom and honestly not the most common one. There’s a strata of symptoms including feeling off, tired, chills, lack of taste, runny nose - too many to list.

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

Nice review TSauer - I recall being on the Ping G400 team with you and you did a great job then as well.

I’m going to be anxious to see the reviews from the guys who were looking for more height/carry. 2/3rds of my golf is played in wet conditions where carry is king.

This is the iron fitting.  The driver one followed.  But i was worn out for it snd it only resulted in a shaft change that provided better dispersion but no real distance gains

 

 

Rob, this is absolutely fantastic... so much more relevant than the majority of the fitting videos out there.  Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Rev, still don’t feel great. I’ve had a lot of dental work past 3 weeks and it kicked me hard plus our 3 days of winter.
