2020 Official Member Review: Titleist TSi Drivers

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 

I couldn't beat EFSZ ball speeds with the TSi3 either, but similar to you, my dispersion was much better with the TSi.

I'm not doing anything to my driver/3w setup any time soon, but I do wonder if the new Epic line would maintain a ball speed advantage over TSi while upping the stability/forgiveness factor...

Review and results of my fitting on 10/22/2020 Showed up to my Titleist Thursday fitting at the Golf Club at Newcastle about 20 minutes early. Skipped warm-up with irons, so went straight to warm

Dangerous is right. For me I just need to not even test out anything; it's like inception; just plants ideas in my head...slippery slope!

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!

 

Welp.....I've tried on 2 occasions now the epic lineup:  speed is too light, MAX is too round looking 

But the MAX LS......lower spin, higher ballspeed and same tight dispersion as tsi2....8-10yds longer on monitor. 

Next step is to get on course

I (regretfully but happily) got to swing the TSI3 today.....didn’t want to buy a driver but I might need to.....numbers were amazing. Have a free fitting at pga superstore so going to go swing a bunch of low spin drivers at some point and see but they all have a mountain to climb....

Regretfully I witnessed this.  I’d compare the sound of the TSi3 to the thunderous explosion of Thor’s hammer.  It was easily the nicest sounding out of the ones we hit.  Well, at least when you hit it. 

Great work by Titleist on this one.  I’d like to try it again when I’m not swinging like there’s lots of snow outside.  

Maybe I’ll have to plan a visit to a Titleist Thursday this spring.

I tried srixon yesterday and while I did enjoy it the TSI was a big winner. I never went above 3k spin either......carry all around 280, total 300 almost every time......I have a hard time getting under 3500 usually for spin

Yeah, that TSi3 was really low spin for me. So good to find something that fits you! Cool!

This test was the first time I’ve been to a Titleist Thursday. Great experience, I think all of the testers would agree!

I bet! I almost went down and did one last spring before the lockdown. I feel like it would be a shame to not go do it considering how close I live to HQ. Can’t be more than a 30-40 minute ride.

Cally's claim to fame seems to be rooted in ball speed.  And there is CERTAINLY a market for that! 

Now whether they can get the stability and forgiveness to go along with it is another question...

TSI2 is my driver and not going anywhere for a while.
The G410+ has been increased to face angle 13+ and not my mini driver kinda 3 wood. It’s really working out very well. The TSi2 is long, straight, lower trajectory and sounds great. The G410 has better height, more dispersion but manageable and noise, kinda clanky but acceptable.
Works for me.

I’m not totally sure exactly where they do it since they have a few facilities but somewhere over there!

Just hit it today (with my usual shaft, ventus black 6X and grip, oversized specs) on course in some obscenely windy weather...

I’m finding no discernible differences in distance on the course (can’t speak to ball speed, but judging by the distances prob similar enough) between the EFSZ and tsi3, and that’s with the tsi loft at 9 (which is between .5-1.5 lower than I normally play, and giving me a somewhat lower than ideal ball flight). 

I think I’ll be able to get the TSi3 going significantly further (for me) once I play with the loft and some lead tape. It wasn’t the distance which impressed me though, it was the actual size of the sweet spot - definitely felt like a larger area on the face had the ball going max distance. 

I would guess that something in the epic speed line would probably have the same distance and similar forgiveness for me, you, and many others. That said, this club looks and sounds so good, and being from Latrobe, I have to love the Pittsburgh-made ATI face. As such, the only thing that might kick this out would be the TSi4, and I’m not good enough or patient enough to wait for that.
