Titleist TSR Drivers Review (4 NEW Releases for 2023)
The new TSR drivers feature four models from Titleist
Titleist TSR drivers are new for 2023 as the leading manufacturer wheels the latest models off the production line.
The TSR series initially featured three drivers – the TSR2, TSR3 and TSR4 – as the successors to the popular TSi range of drivers and TS2, TS3 and TS4 drivers.
Now there is also a TSR1 model too with Titleist introducing a version that is suited to golfers with swing speeds of less than 90mph.
They are joined the all new TSR fairway woods and TSR hybrids and boast a new head shape, greater speed off the club face, more distance and the promise of “amazing forgiveness” compared to Titleist’s previous driver models.

What Titleist says about the TSR Drivers:
“Titleist TSR2 is slimmed down and ramped up. For players who make contact across the entire surface of the face, it combines our most significant CG shift with a new Multi-Plateau VFT face to boost speed across the face.
“If you are a player with a consistent impact location, then Titleist TSR3 is your ticket to maximum driving performance. The new Speed Ring Face Technology creates a focused point of pure speed that can be precision-tuned to match your point of contact.
“If excess spin is the enemy, Titleist TSR4 is the answer. It offers two different spin reduction settings, improved aerodynamics and our new Multi-Plateau VFT face construction – all housed in a compact, 430cc player-preferred shape.
“Titleist TSR1 Driver’s incredible lightweight configuration and enhanced aerodynamics make it easier to generate more speed. The new Multi-Plateau Variable Face Thickness design optimizes ball speed across the entire face.”

Titleist TSR Drivers Design & Features
The new drivers feature three models in the series with the TSR2, TSR3 and TSR4 released – just like the TSi range and before that the TS series.
A fourth was added with the launch of the TSR1, which breaks new ground with a lighter design aimed to help moderate swing speed golfers generate more club head speed.
All models feature the new Multi-Plateau VFT across the face to generate impressive ball speeds and extra distance off the tee.
One of the key differences between each of the models is in the back weights, which offer of degree of flexibility when it comes to setup options, as well as a slight aerodynamic change to the sole shape.

Titleist TSR2 Driver Review
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.
Also key to the distance gains is the new Multi-Plateau VFT face, which has improved the stability and unleashed additional ball speed from across the entire face.
The cleaner look to the clubhead is also down to a design tweak to the toe shape, which has created a slightly different face angle and address position than in previous models.
The TSR2 is available in 8 degrees, 9 degrees, 10 degrees and 11 degrees with the SureFit hosel allowing for plenty of adjustability.

Titleist TSR3 Driver Review
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.
Coupled with the technology, Titleist has introduced the refined SureFit Adjustable CG Track System to allow you to position the focused hitting zone exactly where you expect to hit from.
The TSR3 is available in 8 degrees, 9 degrees, 10 degrees and 11 degrees with the SureFit hosel allowing for plenty of adjustability.

Titleist TSR4 Driver Review
The TSR4 driver is the smallest of the trio 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.
Aerodynamics have been improved from the TSi4 model, while the key design addition is the same Multi-Plateau VFT face construction used in the TSR2 driver.
This face technology has not only improved the stability of the driver, but also created additional ball speed from across the entire face regardless of the hitting zone.
The TSR4 is available in 8 degrees, 9 degrees and 10 degrees with the SureFit hosel allowing for plenty of adjustability.

Titleist TSR1 Driver Review
The TSR1 driver was added to the 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 have also opted for a face centred CG in this model for a higher launch and more ball speed.
The Multi-Plateau VFT face technology is also included to help create additional ball speed from across the entire face regardless of the hitting zone.
The TSR1 is available in 9 degrees, 10 degrees and 2 degrees with the SureFit hosel allowing for plenty of adjustability.
