2020 Official Member Review: Titleist TSi Drivers


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

You do know, of course, that clubs have personalities.  Your SIM Max knows you are getting a TSi2 and it's jealous.  It's punishing you.  Better get used to it.  🤣

This is a true fact! All clubs are afraid of the dark corner of the garage

@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...

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

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

I really hope this is the year Adam Scott decides he wants to put a TSi5 or even TSi6 in the bag, and then they release the smaller beasts to public... oh, that was a good dream.

Throwing out something here for fun. Anyone want to guess what shaft that I am fitted into tomorrow during the fitting (shaft, flex, weight), based on the info I provided about my game? I will give away a small prize for who ever guesses the right (or closest) shaft.

You can assume the shafts will be from this list: https://www.titleist.com/golf-clubs/golf-drivers/tsi2


Awesome idea!  Thanks for adding a great touch to the test.  I'm going to go with Kuro Kage Black 55 S.

*edit* And I am way late to the party and still wrong 🤣

Really looking forward to hearing what everyone’s feedback on the TSi line.

With that said I was very fortunate to get an opportunity 2 weeks ago to get fit for a driver and 3 wood, both of which just showed up in the mail today!
 

While I'm not an official tester I definitely excited to contribute in an unofficial manner

I can't wait. If I can hit any sort of functional tee shot along with my current iron game, i can break 90 soon.

So just a fitting update, in case there are any eagle eyes out there that track these sort of things and mention it later 🙂 

As we golfers are often prone to do, I started wondering about a couple of the results in my fitting and some things I began to doubt.   Rainy Sundays are never good for letting the mind wonder.

So first thing Monday, I was able to get in touch with one of the guys at 2nd swing, which in my mind offers fittings every bit as good if not better than Club Champion. In any case, I went in to see him and didn't say anything about my previous results, just that I wanted to go through a TSi 2/3 fitting.

So we went through the whole process, I'll spare everyone the boredom of seeing another home movie.  

But the two biggest differences that came out of this fitting, I hit more shafts, not just the featured shafts, but two of the premium shafts as well.  

The good news, is the shaft result was the same as the Titleist Thursday fitting. So I had that bug answered.  I had began to wonder if one of the other shafts would have reduced my spin even more than the KK Black.   They really didn't.  And the lightweight of the KK kept my swing speed up a bit.  

The big differences was we talked about length and club head loft.  After seeing my baseline swings with the TS1, he  immediately went to a 9 degree head versus the 10 degree from the previous fitting. We stayed there and never wandered, it can always be lofted up as we know if I ever feel I need to. 

Then noticing my misses were slightly heel side no matter which shaft we tried, we went shorter in the shaft to 45" from the stock 45.5".   My impact was more centered with those, and actually my swing path which is always a bit out to in, was reduced to 2* out/in from around 5*, meaning I got some more ball speed, about 2 mph more.  My smash factor--which we all now know should be taken with a grain of salt--went from the 143 to the 146 and even a couple 149/150's.  

So I came away from this one feeling, no doubt in my setup.   Fortunately with the time difference between here and CA, I was able to get it into Titleist in time to make the change.

This just makes me laugh. We are all full of doubt and have to put our faith in the fitter. No fitting is perfect and if you didn’t another fitting today with another fitter you may get additional differences. Trust the process and just swing as fast as you can.

That’s great you were able tweak it in time. I think we ALL go through those thoughts afterwards. Golfers are skittish anyway.....

You can always count on me to brighten your day, or feel more sane about yourself.  You are correct in that we are always full of doubt.  The biggest thing eating at me was could it have been a bit more if we tried this.    But the important thing is I got confirmation on the shaft, so that's good, but that a couple other things that weren't tried on Thursday led to a bit better results.

Ha... No that wasn't a secret message.  Only that I got it in before the orders were submitted, I don't know when they will actually go into production.
