Titleist announced new TS2 and TS3 drivers at the 2018 U.S. Open, and we captured photos of both clubs. Equipment expert Brian Knudson and Editor Andrew Tursky take a deep dive into the photos to speculate what’s different about the new drivers compared to the previous 917D2 and 917D3 models from 2016. Also, the guys offer their picks to win the 2018 U.S. Open, and discuss Jason Dufner’s WITB.

    TS3 is their lowest spinning head yet. Solid metal. All Black, simple designs, good sound, I prefer a little duller. Best reduction in sidespin I have ever tested.

    Going in my bag.

    I’m thinking the will have some Jailbreak type construction or similar. Look for this to be a big release for them.

    Wish Titleist Drivers would be lower spinning and have higher ballspeed….thats what they need to do and I’m sure it will be amazing and it will actually get them more sales…

      Or if you are a low spin high launch guy like me they need to spin a bit more….. Everyone is different, saying they need to do one thing to fix their driver line is really not a valid statement, it’s a personal reference.

    Callaway has run away with the equipment market and hid…especially with Drivers. Titleist and TM have lots of catching up to do to stay relevant..Ping is closer and Ive seen a few more of them around this season by Jailbreak still rules.

    My Epic is still just that and with my improved swing recently its even more so than ever and its been in the bag for 16 mths and counting now….A new record!

      Have you hit the Ping LST?

        I have. It is cash money. Beast. Almost feels like cheating.

      I’m not a fan of the way a carbon crown driver sounds/feels. Yes, my numbers are better with the Rogue, but when I demoed one on the course, it was so unsatisfying. I didn’t even hit it the back nine. I recently hit a friend’s Ping G400. It sounded great! That’s my next driver. (Probably the last)

The Gear Dive WITB Edition: Adam Scott

Published

on

In this WITB edition of The Gear Dive, Johnny chats with JJ VanWezenbeeck and Aaron Dill of Titleist Golf on the ins and outs of Genesis Invitational Champion Adam Scott’s setup.

Adam Scott WITB details below

Driver: Titleist TS4 (10.5 degrees, A1 SureFit setting, 2-gram weight)
Shaft: Mitsubishi Kuro Kage XTS 80 X

  • Scott put the Kuro Kage in play this week. Per Titleist’s J.J. VanWezenbeeck, “Adam Scott switched to the TS4 driver at the ZoZo Championship due to head size, shape, and improved launch to spin ratios. This week, after discussions with Adam, he went to a shaft he had previously played for increased stability. He felt the shaft went a little far and he lost head feel. We went on course with lead tape to get the feels to match up then weighted the head to preferred swing weight after testing.”

3-wood: Titleist TS2 (16.5 degrees, A1 SureFit setting)
Shaft: Fujikura Rombax P95 X

Irons: Titleist 716 T-MB (3-iron), Titleist 680 (4-9 irons)
Shafts: KBS Tour 130 X

Wedges: Titleist Vokey Design SM8 (48.08F, 52.08F, 56.10S), Vokey Design SM8 WedgeWorks (60.06K)
Shafts: True Temper Dynamic Gold AMT Tour Issue X100

Putter: Scotty Cameron Xperimental Prototype Rev X11 (long)

Ball: Titleist Pro V1

Scott marks his ball with dots in the pattern of the Southern Cross, which is featured on the Australian flag.

Grips: Golf Pride Tour Velvet

On Spec: Fairway wood fittings | Adam Scott wins with 17-year-old irons

Published

on

Host Ryan Barath talks about the juxtaposition that is Adam Scott’s golf bag, from his brand new Titleist TS4 and SM8 wedges, to the 17-year-old 680MB forged blade irons.

The second part of the show is about finding the right fairway woods for you, and why if you have a club that does the job you should probably hold onto it.
