2020 Official Member Review: Titleist TSi Drivers


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Just completed a follow-up Trackman session. The work has certainly paid off...today was purely, how fast can I get the TSi 3 to go? 
For reference here is where I was during the test: 
Clubhead speed: 109.8
Ball Speed Average: 164 MPH 
Carry: 267 yards
 
Today: (These were eye-popping)
Average Clubhead Speed: 114.93
Carry: 284.1 yards
Ballspeed: 171.5 MPH
Here is the fastest I could get it to go (it is not included in the averages above because of how far left it went lol)

Craziest thing was the fact that I was able to start controlling it:

I have already sold my EFSZ on Ebay as the honeymoon period is over with the TSi3 and I am still getting some awesome improvement and performance. 
 
My only concern is the spin rate...seems a bit high.  I may have to switch to a lower spin ball and see how that works. I hope all you other testers are having as much fun as I am! 

I’m still OK With the TSI2.
I’m experimenting with the G410 as a modified 3w. Driver adjustments is a beautiful thing.

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 a

@Golfspy_CG2 and the fine folks at Titleist have set me up to get fitted here tomorrow...I am officially the luckiest SOB on this site! MUCH more to come very soon...

I am not going to lie people, this post has taken me a long time to write and post.  This is not a bad thing, I simply could not find the words to describe what happened this afternoon at 3 pm central

Hit 'em both!  A couple of the reviews I've seen/read had those same thoughts going in, and ended up hitting the 3 better, and one the other way, thinking it'd be the TSi3 and ended up hitting TSi2 better.  It's all about YOUR swing , and how you are presenting the club face to the ball.

TSi3 spin was WAY too low for me. Good ball speed, and I liked the looks and feel, but I couldn’t play it.

That is awesome, kind of like a Stenson 3w or Phil's smaller driver. I like that idea, gives you confidence with a bigger head behind the ball. Happy Tinkering!

Took 10* tsi2 down to 9.25 * without any launch reduction but spin reduction for those into the fan shots......I hit tsi2 into places my best SIM driver finished.....ballspeed retention is amazing......I'm the type to use most of the face so that's a big factor! 

 

 

Just an update......tried SIM, SIM2 and MAX also G425 max......none will unseat tsi2....

Last up is epic max 

The tsi2 is pretty much on cruise control.....fun!

Played 9 Wednesday. Hit 5 of 7 fareways with TSI2 with decent length. The 2 fareways missed were not by a lot and were still in play. Honeymoon is over and TSI2 is still in the bag and doing well.
I have changed the settings to more “center” from draw. Still getting a mini draw and that’s fine.
Wanted to get in another round this morning but 37* and that’s not getting me out the door.
G410 plus driver set at max height is now a permanent 3w and I’m liken’ it!
See how Monday goes , a couple VERY narrow fareways.

Almost forgot.
A member here sent me a Thank You care package a month ago including 6 ProV1’s. Wednesday I played with these balls! Definitely a few yards longer than the Sirxons. My surprise is my swing speed is Turtle speed and didn’t think the ProV1’s would work, wrong again.

I may be back on the ProV train again.
Next time Titleist has a fitting day I’m looking at TSI2 hybrid, after the driver hybrid has to be decent.

A couple months in, and I am still loving the TSi3 driver, TSi2 3wood combo. 
 

Also my 818 h2 is starting to come to grips with being replaced by the TSi2 hybrid eventually 😂

I'm gaming the TS2 7w, and getting along with it fine.  Set at A2 to give me a bit of draw bias. 

Give it a shot!

WARNUNG!
Ich kann nur alle in Kontinentaleuropa davor warnen die neuen TSI zu bestellen. 
Ich habe Anfang Dezember den TSI2 9° mit Schaft Tensei blue bestellt und bezahlt bei einem autorisierten Fachhändler in Hamburg. 
Nach 9 Wochen ist der Driver noch immer nicht geliefert.  Ich habe mich an den Golfshop, Titleist Deutschland und Titleist USA gewandt. 
Ich habe bis heute noch nicht einmal einen Liefertermin! Was passiert wenn man eine Reklamation einsenden muss?
Wenn die Produktentwicklung bei Titleist arbeiten würde wie der Kundenservice,  könnte man mit dem Driver Baseball spielen. 
Unfassbar!!!

Translation:

WARNING! I can only warn everyone in continental Europe against ordering the new TSI. At the beginning of December I ordered the TSI2 9 ° with the Tensei blue shaft and paid for it from an authorized specialist dealer in Hamburg. After 9 weeks the driver is still not delivered. I contacted the golf shop, Titleist Germany and Titleist USA. I still don't even have a delivery date! What happens if you have to send in a complaint? If product development at Titleist worked like customer service, you could be playing baseball with the driver. Incomprehensible!!!

Well, it happened.

Just blew some gift certificate money from Christmas to get a TSI3 to replace the old EFSZ.

Hard to compare the two since I have been playing an oversized or jumbomax grip on the EFSZ, and the TSI3 had a standard grip and shaft that wasn’t my Ventus black velocore.

That said, while distance was better with my gamer, dispersion was much better with the TSI3 (there were lots of mishits on both clubs lol) and that was despite the fact that every swing felt uncomfortable given the grip (which tbf has been the case when testing any standard size grip club for me since I switched to midsize with extra wraps or jumbomax)

getting everything swapped out and looking forward to hitting it once my regular shaft and grip are in. I know this is a poor way to self-fit, but there was something about it, it looked so mean, I just know it’s gonna rip on the course

Did my driver fitting yesterday. I went to Windmill Golf Center in Macedonia and hooked up with Cliff, who did my iron evaluation last year, so he knows my swing. My criteria was I didn't care about the brand, just wanted the best for me but we had to use stock offering shafts and he was cool with that.

Following is what we tried.

Callaway BB21. After 5 swings it was sent packing, just a horrible driver for me.
Callaway Epic Max. OK, but my M5 is just as good.
TM Sim2 Max. It was good, better than the M5 but there was better.
Ping G425 Max. Very, very good with a few tweaks using the Tensei Orange AV Raw. Only a bad bad swing went right.

After those, Cliff said I think we've got something special now.

Titleist TSi2 with the HAZRDUS Smoke Black 6.0. After a few swings he changed the setting to B2 and we were off to the races. AoA on my best swings was -0.5. Using range balls in 30° weather my average carry was 238 and average including roll was around 258.

So, I'll be placing my order in the next couple of weeks and hopefully have it by the end of the month.
