2020 Official Member Review: Titleist TSi Drivers


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Thanks for everyone that participated in the mini-contest of guessing which shaft that I would get fitted in. The closest guess was from @Lacassem. He guessed right shaft brand, weight class, and flex, but was just off on the model. Please PM me your address, have a small prize to send.

Love it.

just winging this one and going with the AD DI. Seems like you’re looking for a little higher launch and little more roll. Not knowing what your tempo or swing speed is this is my best guess with a stiffer tip and a softer middle.

@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

Today is officially the first day the TSi series can be ordered, with the official launch date for clubs being in hand on Nov 12. Maybe us testers will get them a few days early 😃

All of this talk... I truly cannot wait to see what the TSi4 looks like (yes I’ve seen pictures on the other place).  I have the thumbs up for a new driver from the boss.  
 

Half tempted to just get fitted for the TS4 or TS3... but I really like the idea of a smaller head profile.  My fitting plans had to get canceled that I was planning on for this week due to an unforeseen event... plus a mega math exam on top of 2 other assignments... only two more semesters.

Yeah, as hard as it is to wait, I'd hold off and do the fitting with the new heads.   My fitter told me here are a lot of previous TS3 players that are being fit into the Tsi2.  The heads really are that different.

So I went out yesterday and hit about 3 of our best holes to hit driver on and got some bench marks with my current TS1 driver and marked the spots for each of them, to compare with the TSi.   Also used three different balls to see how they performed.

My usual ProvX, the Bridgestone RX and a White Box ball from Wilson 🙂 🙂   I was impressed!

I don't need to benchmark my SIM Max, usually in the trees off to the right, only about 200 yard drive after hitting a tree. 😂

That's exaggerated, not quite that bad. I have some benchmarks to use from my Shotscope data.

I really like how Titleist puts together a matrix based on their classification of shafts across brands. They don't solely rely on the shaft vendor's profiles, and they also classify launch and spin for each weight of a particular shaft. The shaft that I was fitted into for example, the GD AD-XC 6S. GD classifies Low/Mid launch, Low spin. Titleist classifies the same shaft as Mid-launch, Low-Mid spin. 

Also, many shaft vendors classify their shafts as high launch, low spin. Titleist does not classify any shafts as truly meeting this category.

It’s a perfect example of how there’s no standard in the industry. Also this is why you sometimes see the torque or other specs listed on their page be different from the manufacturer. They do their own testing and as we know each manufacturer tests torque and stuff differently

I just got a call from an unknown number. I pick those up like 0% of the time, but was expecting a work call so I answered it. It was my local Golfmart saying they had a Titleist box that was addressed to me! Did I order my club through Golfmart? NOPE. So weird. I guess FedEx dropped it off there instead of to my house? Luckily Golfmart has my number...🙃

Headed there later today to pick up this new beauty. I really outsmarted myself by booking time with the wife and in-laws this weekend thinking the club would arrive next week...

I know! I talked to the guy at Golfmart for a bit and it apparently happens with FedEx/UPS frequently whenever they have a bulk delivery of golf club boxes. If they didn’t have my info in their system it would have been handed back to the delivery guy tomorrow and I would have probably received on Monday. 
 

Anyway, she’s a real beauty!

Yeah. I’ve looked at that.  Does moving the thing around change the way the club sits at address?  I remember my R1 it actually closed the face, but this just says upright?
