Titleist introduces new 2021 TSi2 and TSi3 fairway woods

Published

  • New 2021 Titleist TSi fairway woods are here

It was just over two years ago that Titleist engaged in the TS (Titleist Speed) Project. The original campaign gave us four unique drivers (TS1, TS2, TS3, and TS4) for all levels of golfers and two fairway woods that were not only popular in the marketplace but also at the top of countless fairway wood counts on the PGA Tour.

What made them good? Simplicity. The TS2 did exactly as advertised—it launched high, was extremely forgiving and playable across a huge handicap range. Its lower spinning brother, TS3 satisfied the higher-speed players that wanted lower launch and reduced spin.

It would have been easy enough for engineers to cruise along and get five-percent better in this next cycle, but like the TSi drivers, Titleist has taken the best of the TS fairway line and cranked up the volume in a huge way.

TSi2

What’s new: Deeper and lower CG than ever before giving the player even better launch conditions and flatter spin rates for increased distance overall. The face is supported by a lighter Active Recoil Channel (fourth edition) that strengthens the face for added ball speed and playability, especially on the lower face strikes. That saved weight was then distributed to the back for a lower CG and higher MOI.

Looks: Enhanced better player detailing than in previous generations of the two series, the toe area has an outward flow to it that gives a more square-to-open look at address. A new TSi alignment aid in combination with a re-imagined face profile frames the ball well in the playing position that gives the player the appearance of loft, which is key in fairway woods.

TSi3

What’s New: Improved acoustics, enhanced adjustability, faster face with ARC 4.0, enhanced shaping, and overall optics to please the eyes of better players.

Titleist TSi3 introduces a new Fairway Track system that incorporates more weight deeper in the head to lower the CG, all while giving the player the ability to easily alter the CG with a sliding weight system that is far superior to the previous models’ SureFit CG system. The three-position system (heel/toe/neutral) is secured by a robust Kyron Max Polymer with a carbon fiber cover.

In comparison to the TS3, the new Titleist TSi3 fairway wood will give players an overall better experience from the playing position to launch.

Looks: “Confidence-inspiring” is the best way to describe it. A lower-spinning profile in a body that sits in between a shallow and deep face is a winner. This design is one most OEMs are nailing these days and this case is no different. The TSi3, like its sibling, has a softened toe area to give an open look that better players prefer.

Titleist TSi2 and TSi3 fairway feel

The combination of the newly constructed face (with ARC 4.0) and lower CG position gives the TSi metal woods a unique feel at impact. Like the driver, they have a softer feel and acoustic than most on the market but when you look up the increased ball speed is clearly visible. I believe the feel and sound of the TSi line will pleasantly surprise almost everyone, it’s def unique.

Overall: Excellent but not as big of a leap as Titleist made in the driver category but a sure-fire step forward. Let’s be honest, they have always made a great fairway wood, since the PT Series I cannot think of one that I didn’t think was top tier.

In my testing, apples-to-apples against the previous models, I’d say they are both a touch longer if at all but they look better, sound better, and are easier to hit across the board. That’s huge.

I truly appreciate what Titleist did optically here. There is very little difference visually between TSi2 and TSi3. This is important because I’m a player that likes the look of a low spin head but want the performance of a higher launching head, so selfishly, I’m elated they designed them this way.

Performance-wise, it’s no surprise: These fairway woods look good, sound good, and perform. Fairway woods have a job to do, and it’s not just to go a long way, it’s a club you need to rely on off the tee, fairway, and outta jail. The TSi Series fairway woods will be in a ton of bags in 2021…on the Tour and at the local muni.
