So, you don’t have to be tour-standard to find a Titleist driver for your game; all golfers can enjoy the best Titleist drivers – ladies, juniors, seniors, professionals, mid handicappers… everyone.
So far as the new Titleist TSi drivers are concerned, the ‘i’ stands for impact, innovation and inertia, because Titleist has made a number of design changes to increase the club speed, ball speed and forgiveness of the drivers.
Here, we offer our best advice on which club will suit your game.
We’ve tested each of the drivers on the launch monitor and out on the course, so we recommend that you watch our video reviews below to find out how the performed.
Best Titleist Drivers
Titleist TSi2 Driver
+ Easy to flight
+ Consistently good distance with plenty of forgiveness
– No shot shape adjustability
Designed to be easy to hit and consistently long, a number of new technologies has made this possible.
Firstly, a ATI 425 face insert provides greater strength and elasticity for more ball speed across the entire face.
Secondly, the head has been reshaped to reduce drag and help players generate more clubhead speed.
In testing, we were struck by how easy the TSi2 was to launch, which allowed us to swing relatively smoothly and still deliver a powerful ball flight.
What was also noticeable was the consistency even when shots missed the centre.
Behind the ball, it strikes an ideal balance between looking generous in size and easy to hit without appearing too clunky.
Titleist TSi3 Driver
+ Improved looks
+ More effective adjustability
– Some may need more alignment assistance
The TSi3 driver features a more compact, pear-shaped profile and a new SureFit CG Track positioned around the rear skirt, allowing players to alter their shot shape and launch characteristics.
Comparing it to the outgoing TS3, we prefer the more rounded toe and the quieter thud it produces – which is closer to what you might experience with carbon fibre drivers like Callaway Mavrik and TaylorMade SIM.
We believe many golfers will also prefer how the sole weight setting is now visible – with the TS3 you had to unscrew and remove the weight to see what it was.
With the multitude of settings and shafts available, a custom fitting is a must to get the most out of it.
Gains over the TS3 will vary from player to player but we certainly got much more out of the TSi3 than we were expecting.
With its more varied adjustability and extra forgiveness on offer, it will appeal to a range of golfers, not just the better player.
Titleist TS1 Driver
– Lightweight feel should assist with clubhead speed
– High launching and forgiving
– Might flight the ball too high for some
The introduction of the TS1, which has a stretched out look from front-to-back, really got our attention when it was unveiled because it targets a different player profile to most Titleist drivers.
It seeks to provide maximum assistance to those golfers with slower swing speeds, as well players who require a little extra forgiveness and rely on high launch and increased spin to keep the ball up in the air for longer.
It features a built-in draw bias compared to the TS2, which is going to help golfers who struggle with a slice.
Light and easy to swing – something you’ll notice as soon as you get hold of it – we found it really delivered that extra spin.
Titleist TS2 Driver
+ Solid, explosive feel
+ High levels of forgiveness
– Extra shaft length may be a problem for some to control
Titleist’s fastest ever driver features a new Speed Chassis, whilst a streamlined shape reduces drag by 20 per cent.
In testing, we found the TS2 launched the ball higher and with more spin, so many high-speed players may gravitate towards the lower launching TS3.
The TS2 will suit a wide range of players, especially those seeking forgiveness as well as distance with their driver.
Titleist TS3 Driver
+ Powerful feel at impact
+ Array of fitting options
– Address view may be too traditional for some
In testing, we found the TS3 lower launching compared to the TS2, which is likely to appeal more to players with faster swing speeds.
The TS3 is slightly more pear shaped and and features SureFit CG on the sole allowing golfers to fine tune their ball flight.
Such immediate speed together with the fitting options makes the TS3 a serious weapon, and one that will likely suit the better players, especially with its slightly smaller address profile.
Titleist TS4 Driver
+ Shorter, quieter impact sound than other TS models
– Lack of off-centre forgiveness limits the appeal
The TS4 should get your attention if you’re looking to reduce your spin.
Indeed, during testing it proved to be the lowest spinning of the TS drivers.
Its smaller size and more forward CG makes it less forgiving, so it’s likely to suit more accomplished ball strikers, but don’t rule it out if you’re a player who likes to hit down on the ball significantly.
