Titleist TSR

JT Poston put the TSR in his bag for the Deere and went out and won his first event with it. Didn't gain a million strokes driving (kind of did everything well) but that seems like a decent endorsement.

Not sure what you would be expecting.    Too much talk or advertising now hinders current driver sales.   Also need to get content for the advertisements since the players just started playin them.

This is always the case when a driver is in tour seeding phase. They put it in play, give feedback to the reps who give feedback to HQ and they make tweaks where needed.

it’s not die for release til late summer or early fall. So no reports isn’t a bad thing.

Nothing coming from the pros on the new TSR driver. I'm sensing issues. Anyone know anything?

I think you're jumping to conclusions. The pros using the TSR line are paid by Titleist, why would you expect them to say anything at this stage? This their beta testing, so they can make final tweaks if necessary, before rolling product out to everyone. Patience...

Numbers don’t lie. Tour players like the TSR and it’s performing just fine.

You love to see it. As a long time Titleist Player, I cannot wait for these clubs to be in fitting carts. According to my golf pro who is Titleist sponsored, this should be before Labor Day.

I pushed back a fitting I had scheduled to October in hopes these would be available by then.  Believe they've already had two wins with JT Poston and Cam Smith already having put them in the bag.  Not bad...

I also thought it was interesting that Cam Smith plays his driver at 10*. Seems a bit high for an elite tour player (based on what I see others play) but obviously works for him. As someone who plays a high lofted driver (like...really high) it is always reassuring to see tour players in the double digits for driver loft. 

Also Cameron Young seem to drive the absolute s**t out of the ball with his TSR as well.

I read somewhere (probably a WITB article on the web) that the driver is 10* but he adjusts it to 10.75...

If someone has a driver less than 5 years old I doubt you would see a difference in how you hit the ball. Will be interesting to hit this driver as a demo to see how it stacks up against my current TS2 driver. I have noticed a few recent winners on tour have the new Titleist driver. Will definitely demo the club soon when it comes out in the fall to the public.

I'm sure he just has a really low driver launch and the 10° gives him the best numbers. Or maybe at the Open he would've been hitting it too far into some greens with a 9°. As far as not hearing I'm pretty sure it's always quiet until release time. Just the fact so many are using it already makes me think it is an improvement over an already incredible TSi line. I think the TSi was better than the SIM 2.

It’s about launch windows. There are a bunch of pros playing 10+°

Thats also like saying I’m surprised so and so plays the TSi2 for being such an elite player. The m2, sim/2 max, g400/410/425 have had elite Tory players use the max head including Finau who has some crazy speed when he lets it go. Or Nelly Korda playing TSi1. For all golfers regardless of level/skill getting a driver head and loft that puts them in the right launch window is the first thing that should be done. Then tweak it with shafts and possibly for some with adapter settings.

I get that. I just was encouraged by the news. It feels like every time I meet up with a high level player they are always playing 7 or 8* drivers. Same with "forgiving" drivers. Everyone has to play what is best for them and while I am not confusing myself with a tour player or even a high level player it gives me more confidence I am in the right loft around 11-12*.

But how many of them were fit? If they were then they are playing a head that puts them in the launch window they need. Also need to account for the ball they play.

Lots of factors but if you look at witb of pga players you will find 10°+ drivers. 
 

What others play should have zero to do with what you or anyone plays or giving confidence you or anyone is in the right driver.

Given the current worldly supply chain issues, etc, the "seeding" phase doesn't mean anything and the product the tour players are using is what's coming to retail.  Product lines are created years in advance and it's crazy to think that Titleist would be able to change anything with an entire product line in the next few months if the pros didn't like something about it.  The only tweaking the pros are going to do is getting into the right head and getting it spec'd up to their preference (hotmelt, loft, shaft, etc).

Titleist was already working on the next drivers when these got announced.

My bag is a revolving door!

Agree and anyone that’s been around forums knows that r&d are always working on stuff that’s easily 3-5 years out. Which I’ve been around them since 2013/2014 plus have had the opportunity to talk with two different club companies face to face during that time
 

Nobody is saying that the pros are going to get anything tweaked in the design between now and release but what or that Titleist will make any changes based on the feedback before general release depending on what it is. But if there is something that needs it titleist could delay the releases.

But what titleist is doing is getting the tour feedback to see what it is, what the can use for future designs, etc.

Having seen this line in hand. I am excited for it. I played the TSi line and this is a very good step forward. You will not see anything crazy in terms of performance jumps but it is a solid next step. The shape of the fairways is better, and I think the ball flight is more stable.

Not to hiijack this thread but I know @RickyBobby_PRknows what he is talking about but I did want to throw this little monkey wrench in there. I am a big proponent of fitting BUT, the way I have had drivers fit in the past makes me look back at it and think we (me and the fitter) were not on the same page. I may have already gone through this whole story but basically an "optimized" driver for me was a 9* head and boardy shaft. It put up all the right numbers and, after hitting 50 drivers, I was striping it. Get out on the course and all that is gone. Shaft feels terrible, ball flight is very low and I am losing it right. Fight with the driver for 6 months, then go out and buy a used 12* head and pair it with an Aldila Silver Rogue 110. Magically, or not so magically, the ball flight is (obviously) higher, straighter, shaft feels better but my absolute best drive is 20-30 yd short of the old 9*. The fitter would say he did his job because he got me in the optimal setup but I would say I can only consistently play that driver if my swing is firing on all cylinders. I would assume almost any fitter would look at my specs and say driver spin is too high (3000 rpm), launch angle is too high etc. Maybe I didn't express myself enough but I am not trying to hit the ball as far as possible. I want a driver that goes straight and I have found that is a driver that is cut down to 44" and 11-12* of loft with a lower kick point shaft. I have never gotten "fit" into anything close to that but that setup has lead me to gain more strokes driving, shoot lower scores and generally enjoy golf more. 

 

TLDR - Fitting is great but make sure you are honest with your fitter and yourself about what you need out of a driver, it's not always absolute distance and optimal conditions.
