I have a question that is befuddling me as of lately. At the time of the fitting we have no idea who would win the 2021 Most wanted Driver, The TSi2 can is second, but it seems that the TSi3 was the more popular driver during the official review and of many people who are being fitted as of lately. While the TSi2 won the testing, it doesn't seem that its been that appealing to purchases and fittings on the forum or social media? Or is it because it is easier to fit someone in the TSi3 because of the adjustability with weighting?

IMO has to do what works for the individual. The tsi2 has plenty of use on the PGA tour so it’s not a second thought type driver. In general the TSI3 is going to reduce some spin compared to the 2 so those who thru swing faults or other reasons generate a lot of spin will benefit from the design to the 3.

I have a buddy that did a fitting last year. His ball speeds are in the upper 160s and increasing thru overspeed training and improved fitness. In his fitting the numbers including spin and launch were pretty identical between the 2 and 3. He went with the two for the added forgiveness.

I also was fitted for the Titleist TSI driver. The numbers for my swing speed were much better with the TSI2 than the TSI3.

Time to update my official review.  

 

I now have 20 rounds played with the TSi2 since the start of the new year.  When I wrote my review, I had played many rounds hitting both drivers, but only a few playing with just the TSi2.  I took the Callaway out of the bag for good and have played only with the TSI2 in 2021.

 

The more I play with this driver, the more I like it.  And I liked it a lot when I posted my review.  (I gave it 88 out of 100 possible points).

 

Here are some things I’ve noticed about my play this year with the TSi2.

 

1.      In my review I mentioned that my best drives were the same.  Drivers were maxed out.  That still holds, but I find I have a lot more really good drives.  When testing, I think going back and forth between drivers kept me from really dialing in one club.  Now that I am dialed in, I am hitting long, center part of the fairway shots more often.  

 

 

2.     Off center hits continue to impress.  I’ll hit a shot and think “that’s in the trees left,” and the ball will end up in the short rough instead.  And on shots high or low on the face, the ball will go 20 yards more than I expect.  This has changed my strategy on a couple of holes.  I am taking more aggressive lines.  On two holes, I now hit driver where last year I would lay up short of trouble.  I just go left of it, or past it now.  But, on one hole, I’ve switched from hitting driver to 3 wood to keep from going through the fairway.  

 

 

3.     A sleeve of balls last longer.  My course has water on several holes and most fairways are lined with thick Florida scrub—good for ball sales, not so good for low scores.  I played the last three rounds with the same ball, retiring it because use instead of dunking it in a pond.  In the review I mentioned that range balls leave a residue on the club.  ProV1s leave a mark, but the balls hold up over multiple rounds.  

 

 

4.      I was a bit concerned about how the glossy finish would hold up.  So far, so good.  It’s only 20 rounds, and several range sessions, but no unusual wear and tear. 

 

I note that the TSi2 got second in the Most Wanted Driver test.  If you are looking for a solid, forgiving driver, go test it.  Titleist Thursdays are a great, low stress way to try clubs and get a free fitting.

I gotta agree here. Just really depends on the individual and what they need it for. I need spin reduction and for my region I need a lower ball flight, thus the TSi3 was the best fit for me. I would imagine my numbers would be similar with the 2.

The forgiveness would probably help me a ton, but through the fitting process the 3 was evidently the better option as we didn’t even touch the 2.

I plan to test both once the weather breaks in the northeast, I'll probably take a demo for a week each to test out. I think it's a good problem to have that both drivers are doing that well performance wise

I'm still loving my TSI2. I put the ATTAS COOOL shaft in it the other day just for testing. And it might be staying in it for a while because I only missed 2 fairways 13/15. No fades either ... either straight or slight draw. And that's a new one for me. I loved it :)
Edit ... at least until I find a Fuji Velocore

Played my first actual round in awhile today despite a stiff 20 mph wind. The TSi3 was the only good thing from today! Still loving it and still bombing it [emoji378]!

This is exactly my experience as well. They were very close for me, the 3 set a little flat and with the weight sightly in the toe just took out the left side for me. I hate seeing the ball go left. It also brought my spin down just a little, like 200 RPM. 

Gonna go hit it with the stock Tensei Blue 65 next week and then place my order!

Started having a weird issue with my TSI 2. Once in a while on the range, I will hit a shot and the sound produced is an ear piercing sound, super loud. Anyone else experience that? The ball actually flies decently when I hit it like this, so its not like i am hitting it off of somewhere super weird on the club.

The 55 was pretty good honestly, fitter just wanted to see what the 65 did, but she didn't have it at the time. I bought a Ventus red 5s to test also

If it only happens on the range, it’s most likely a bad range ball that may be harder than the others.

Thanks, there must be some real rocks in there. Sounds louder than the aluminum bat sound of a square driver

Finally went out and hit the new TSi2 yesterday. I was first one on the range and by the time I finished there were about a dozen others there.

I was really really happy with it. Hitting it about 230 into a stiff headwind, most shots were straight with some being a bit of a fade, but no bananas.

Driver was hot today. The TSI 2 performed nicely. Was hitting fairways, was hitting a good distance given the conditions. Only hit two bad tee shots, both user error. One I teed the ball much higher than I normally do and one I swung harder than i normally do and topped it lol.

The trend continues...I’m only gaining strokes with my driver. Other facets of my game are HIDEOUS! But hey! I never really gained strokes with my driving before! Go TSi3!

In case there’s any doubt how the TSi test turned out for this tester six months later...
