Looking for the best Titleist drivers to help improve your game?
From the new addition for 2023 the Titleist TSR series to the TS ranges that preceded them, some of the industry leading drivers in the Titleist range.
In this article, GolfReviewsGuide.com runs you through the options available if you are thinking about adding a new Titleist driver to your bag.
Titleist TSR1 Driver
The Titleist TSR1 driver is the first to be designed for golfers with moderate swing speeds.
The TSR1 driver was added to the TSR series in January 2023 as Titleist broke new ground with an ultra-lightweight option for golfers with slow to moderate swing speeds.
In a first move from Titleist, the new TSR1 fits into the game-improving sector and is aimed at what the manufacturer calls “a third of all golfers”.
To create added ball speeds that slower swing speed golfers lack, Titleist have made the clubhead ultra light by making considerable savings.
The savings allow golfers to generate more speed through the air without the need to swing hard.
Titleist TSR2 Driver
The Titleist TSR2 driver is the high-launching, low-spinning option.
The TSR2 driver is the high-launching, low spinning model of the trio of newcomers and is the most likely to appear in the bag of the general golfer.
Titleist have built the TSR2, which replaces the TSi2, for maximum speed and distance and that’s what it delivers on.
The clubhead has been made smaller, allowing for the CG to be shifted lower and more forward and for improved aerodynamics and added forgiveness. The end result is more speed through the air and distance as a result.
Titleist TSR3 Driver
The TSR3 is the players’ choice from the range of new driver, with this driver all about precision and accuracy from the tee.
Aimed at golfers with a consistent impact location off the face, the improvements to the TSR3 have been centre around the aerodynamics with a number of subtle refinements made to help generate more clubhead speed by eliminating resistance.
The face of the TSR3 features new Speed Ring VFT Technology, which has been designed to centre on a specific ring of the face an area from which to deliver the pure speed that Titleist has wanted to unearth.
Titleist TSR4 Driver
The Titleist TSR4 driver has been designed to offer two ways to reduce spin levels off the tee.
The TSR4 driver is the smallest of the drivers in terms of head shape with this model having a refined 430cc clubhead in a more compact look and feel than the TSR2 and TSR3.
The driver is all about low spin and reducing excessive spin in your game, notably offering two different spin reduction and CG settings to help eradicate the bad parts of your game from the tee.
The TSR4 has what Titleist call “fore and aft weighting options”. They allow experimentation to help produce lower spin with the forward setting offering a maximum spin reduction, and the aft (more back) a moderate reduction.
Titleist TSi Drivers
Titleist released the TSi drivers at the end of 2020 as successors to the TS2 and TS3 models with a big development in the new ATI face design.
The TSi series boasted a face made from ATI 425 Aerospace Titanium to create a super strong face to extract more speed and produce more accurate performance across the face.
The TSi2 driver is for “Pure Distance” and the choice for players wanting to add ball speed from across the entire face without losing accuracy.
Titleist’s TSi3 driver is for “Dynamic Distance” and is less about ball speed and more about a consistent connection and the adjustability of CG.
The TSi2 driver has a fixed weight at the back of the sole and the TSi3 has a sliding weight at the back of the club head.
Titleist TS2 Driver
The TS2 driver carries the familiar look of Titleist drivers of old with a classic black colour scheme. That was missing from the 917, but has been brought back for the latest release.
There is also a significant change from the 917 with the SureFit CG system replaced as the cartridge has been switched for weights in the back of the head instead in the TS2.
The weight means the sole of the TS2 is completely different to the TS3 option with the former now having an X-shaped plate for a 20% reduction in drag which results in increased club head speed through the air.
Titleist also made the titanium crown lighter than any other driver, which in turn allows weight to be moved lower and deeper to help increase the launch angle and created added distance.
Titleist TS3 Driver
The TS3 driver carries all the same technology and design features of its TS2 sister: the same attractive black look, face technology, light crown and reduced drag.
But the difference comes courtesy of the face the SureFit CG system and cartridge used in the 917 drivers have remained in this new release, unlike the TS2 which features weights in the back of the head.
As a result, the sole of the TS3 drivers have a V-shape design with the cartridge running from heel to toe.
It allows golfers to change the angle of loft and lie from draw to fade bias depending on personal preference and makes this the choice of true players.
Titleist TS4 Driver
The Titleist TS4 driver was added to the Titleist Speed range an additional design and an ultra low-spin option.
The TS4 club head is slightly smaller in size and shape compared to the TS2 and TS3, with the key selling point being the fact it offers less spin.
Titleist have reduced the Speed Chassis to 430cc and used an ultra-thin titanium crown which is 20% thinner than the Titleist 917 drivers which preceded the TS range
The crown is more pear shaped than in the TS2 and TS3 models, and the weight of the club head moved lower and more forward than in the other models.
There is a “thinner, faster face” – the fastest Titleist claim to have ever produced – with the Radial VFT (variable face thickness) helping to produce impressive ball speeds.
Titleist 917 Drivers
The Titleist 917 driver was first released in 2016 when launched with two models, the 917D2 and the 917D3.
The D2 is the larger of the two with a maximum 460cc driver head and is designed to offer more forgiveness with a higher launch and trajectory compared to the D3 but with more spin.
The more compact D3 model is 440cc, has a deeper face and provides distance with workability in a traditional tour-inspired pear profile shape]. It offers less spin compared to the D2.
