Titleist has today launched its new TSi drivers and fairway woods that will be available from authorised retailers from November 12.

Titleist TSi drivers push the boundaries of speed through advanced engineering and material breakthroughs – including a new ATI 425 Aerospace Titanium face construction never before used in golf – that combine to produce the longest, straightest, best-looking, and best-sounding Titleist drivers ever.

Meanwhile, Titleist TSi Fairway Metals are engineered with advanced speed-tuned technologies – including Active Recoil Channel 4.0 – to drive faster ball speeds and higher inertia for longer distance with incredible accuracy.

TITLEIST TSI DRIVERS

Faster in the air and faster at impact, the new Titleist TSi drivers push the boundaries of speed through advanced engineering and material breakthroughs – including a new ATI 425 Aerospace Titanium face construction never before used in golf  – that combine to produce the longest, straightest, best-looking, and best-sounding Titleist drivers ever. 

Available in Titleist authorised retailers from November 12, with fittings beginning October 22 at locations nationwide, the new TSi2 and TSi3 models transcend the advancements of the original Titleist Speed Project, accelerating the performance that has made Titleist the most played driver on the PGA Tour for two seasons running. 

From the top of the swing, TSi’s player-tuned aerodynamics propel the clubhead faster toward the golf  ball. At impact, the extremely powerful ATI 425 face launches the ball with added speed. High inertia  properties produce an extremely stable clubhead, providing players with more consistent speed and spin  across the face for longer, straighter drives: 

TSi2 is designed to deliver incredible speed and accuracy across the entire surface of the face, with a deeper, lower CG to maximise distance.

TSi3 is for players capable of creating more consistent contact or requiring more precise control over CG placement, featuring a new SureFit CG Track Design for advanced speed-tuned performance.

The first week that TSi drivers were made available on the PGA and European Tours in early September,  a total of 57 players immediately made the switch, with more players choosing TSi drivers than any  other model across the two events. The following week at the US Open, TSi was the most played driver  model at Winged Foot Golf Club.

"TSi just looks fast and it sounds like a missile coming off the face, when I first tested it I hit one drive off the toe and it carried almost 20 yards further than I would have thought," said Justin Thomas.

"That’s what we want is the bad ones to perform better. Those  weeks where I’m not hitting it consistently in the middle of the face, I feel like this [TSi driver] is going to have the opportunity  for me to narrow my window and dispersion.

"The fact that it is faster without giving anything up – I can’t believe how much  it’s improved when it already seemed to be the best that it can get."

Accurately tuned for speed at every point of contact, TSi driver faces are constructed from ATI 425  Aerospace Titanium, a unique material that delivers superior strength, elasticity and durability versus  the conventional titanium alloys used in golf.

The exceptional ductility of ATI 425 (30 percent higher than  6-4 Titanium) allowed engineers to produce Titleist’s fastest driver face, while maintaining the durability  properties required for consistent maximum performance.  

Made by a single foundry in Pittsburgh, ATI 425 was initially developed for ballistic armor and has since been used in many aerospace and industrial applications, including NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander. Titleist is the only company in golf that uses this material.

The TSi face also features a new high-contrast graphic design that accentuates face center for easy alignment at address. 

The improved shaping of TSi allows the club head to move faster through the air and deliver a more  powerful impact. Both TSi2 and TSi3 have been aerodynamically engineered to reduce drag up to  15 percent (versus prior generation TS models), increasing club head speed for greater ball speed and  distance. The new head shapes feature a tour-requested softer toe profile that looks square at address. 

TSi feels fast in a golfer’s hands and is complemented by meticulous sound engineering that manages  vibrations within the club head to deliver a Tour-quality sound.

While golfers often equate “high MOI” with heel to toe forgiveness, Titleist R&D employs a more holistic  approach to MOI design. TSi also optimises sole to crown performance, producing up to 13 percent  higher inertia values (versus prior generation TS models) that deliver more speed and a tighter launch  and spin range up and down the face. 

TSi’s speed-optimised MOI works in concert with a low and deep CG position to drive faster ball speed  with a high launch, low spin trajectory and exceptional stability for greater distance consistency.

The new TSi3 model features a new SureFit CG track technology that offers five unique positions to  adjust club head CG and fine-tune ball flight. The track offers more precise incremental adjustments –  H2 (most heel biased), H1, Neutral, T1, T2 (most toe biased) – allowing a player to dial-in their launch  conditions. 

Both TSi2 and TSi3 feature Titleist’s patented SureFit hosel with 16 independent loft and lie settings,  plus headweight adjustability (in two-gram increments, ranging from -4g to 4g) to create a more  consistent and optimised ball flight through precision fitting.  

The TSi shaft selection has been assembled to offer world-class options for every swing  speed and profile preference. Golfers can choose from four high performance featured  shafts or upgrade to one of three premium shafts available through Titleist’s new  partnership with Graphite Design. 

RRP: £519 (TSi), £689 (TSi Premium)

TITLEIST TSI FAIRWAYS 

Faster from the tee and turf, the new Titleist TSi fairway metals are engineered with advanced speed-tuned technologies – including Active Recoil Channel 4.0 – to drive faster ball speeds and higher inertia for longer distance with incredible accuracy.

Available in Titleist Authorised retailers from November 12, with fittings beginning October 22 at locations nationwide, the new Titleist TSi2 and TSi3 fairways are the longest, straightest, best looking and best sounding Titleist fairway metals ever – taking after the breakthrough performance of the new TSi drivers, which have quickly become the most-played driver models on the PGA Tour.

From the top of the swing, TSi’s player-tuned aerodynamics propel the clubhead fast toward the golf ball. At impact, Active Recoil Channel (ARC) 4.0 creates greater face flex, launching the ball with increased speed. High inertia properties produce an extremely stable clubhead, providing players with more consistent speed and spin across the face for longer, straighter shots: 

TSi2 launches high with incredible speed and forgiveness across the face, with a deeper, lower CG to maximise distance. TSi3 is for players looking for added workability or requiring more precise control over CG placement, with a new SureFit CG Track Design for advanced speed-tuned performance and shot control.
