The Titleist TS2 hybrid is one of the products featured in our Editor's Choice 2020 product list.
Titleist TS2 Hybrid
A hybrid needs to be versatile and easy to hit and from our testing, the Titleist TS2 might be one of the best on the market.
Admittedly it was unveiled last year but it is still more than competitive with anything on the market launched in 2020, thanks to its excellent speed and forgiveness.
Visually it impresses too, thanks to its large but not chunky looking profile and traditional aesthetics. The full face white grooves also amplify the alignment of the face, helping you set the clubhead down squarely behind the ball. Many will prefer the larger, more wood-like size of the TS2 over the compact TS3 and golfers that tend to sweep the ball off the turf rather than compress it will also likely get on better with the TS2 thanks to the wider sole.
The stand out feature of the TS2 is how easy it gets the ball in the air. Even on slightly thin shots, the ball achieves good carry distance and off-centre strikes from the heel and toe are similarly not affected.

This high, towering flight is ideal when hitting into greens on long par fours and par fives. The adjustability and range of loft options mean you can dial the TS2 in to hit the carry number you want, adjust the flight and also take out one side of the course. A miss the left is a common complaint of hybrids in general but we didn’t experience this with the brilliant TS2.
A custom fitting is essential to get the most from this club and ensure it fits the gaps you need it to but it is a process that will reap the rewards in the end. It will likely prove to be a worthy companion in the bag for golfers that mostly use their hybrid clubs off the deck rather than off the tee.
