Titleist TSR2, TSR3, TSR4 drivers: Everything you need to know

Published

on

What you need to know: TSR is the next generation of the Titleist Speed Project that began more than six years ago with the TS series and continued with TSi models in 2020. There are three models in the TSR line, which began tour seeding in June. TSR2 is a high-launch, low-spin “max” driver, balancing speed and stability. Mid-launch, mid-spin TSR3 is the more adjustable option in a tour-preferred shape. TSR4 is the low-launch, low-spin offering now featuring an adjustable weighting system.

Titleist TSR drivers: What’s new, key technology

Multi-Plateau and Speed Ring Variable Face Thickness (VFT) technologies: Two new VFT constructions. For more forgiveness on off-center strikes, TSR2 and TSR4 feature a multi-plateau VFT face that is built inward, layer by layer, to create nearly constant CT across the entire hitting surface. For players who find the center of the face frequently, TSR3 features a Speed Ring face in which Titleist engineers focused on centering the maximum CT/COR relationship into the sweet spot.

Advanced aerodynamics: TSR models feature a new ‘boat tail’ shape with internal weighting to reduce drag.

Player-tuned designs: The look, feel and sound of each of the models were refined as a result of direct feedback from tour players and other “discerning players,” according to Titleist.

Aerospace grade titanium: Premium aerospace grade titanium is again employed in the construction of TSR drivers.

Titleist TSR2, TSR3, TSR4: Additional model details

TSR2: A high-launch, low spin driver designed for the player who makes contact across the face.

  • Improved aerodynamics and a refined, player-preferred shape vs. TSi2
  • Low, forward CG
  • 460cc head
  • Available lofts: RH | 8.0 | 9.0 | 10.0 | 11.0 | LH | 9.0 | 10.0 | 11.0

TSR3: A mid/high launch, low spin player’s driver engineered for playability and precise CG positioning and an improved sweet spot.

  • Reimagined SureFit Adjustable CG Track System for CG positioning
  • Speed Ring VFT Face created using a conical variable face thickness for maximum CT/COR relationship into one central sweet spot.
  • Tour-preferred shape — subtly refined TSi3 look
  • Available lofts: RH | 8.0 | 9.0 | 10.0 | 11.0 (custom) | LH | 9.0 | 8.0, 10.0 (custom)

TSR4: Mid/low launch, low spin, spin-killing driver with adjustability.

  • Built with a multi-plateau VFT face, like TSR2, for consistent speed (and spin) across the face
  • Two adjustable weighting options: a heavier weight in the forward setting maximizes spin reduction, while moving the weight to the back creates more of a “TSR3.5” performance profile
  • 430cc
  • Available lofts: RH | 8.0 | 9.0 | 10.0 | LH | 9.0

What Titleist says

“Titleist TSR represents the deepest, most complete, and most validated understanding of the tee shot ever held within our walls,” said Stephanie Luttrell, Director, Metalwood Development, Titleist. “Every aspect of impact has been considered, constructed and optimized in service of our singular desire to produce more playable distance from every swing. New TSR drivers take everything that made TSi the most played driver on the PGA Tour and pack even more performance into every head. From new face technologies to CG improvements and aerodynamic refinements, TSR helps the golfer unlock more speed.”

    Doesn’t look much different from TSI

    First, let me say that the new Titleists look beautiful. They always do. I’m sure they are great clubs.

    The reason for my comment, is to note Titleist’s excruciatingly careful promotional language in describing their new drivers. You just don’t see them saying, “In our testing, Titleist pros are gaining an average of 7 to 11 yards with our new clubs…”

    That’s kind of the idea, right? Build clubs that hit balls straighter, and farther. Or that allow players to swing harder, knowing that their shots will go offline less. Thanks to better technology that Titleist alone has.

    None of that would surprise most recreational golfers looking for new equipment to buy. It’s not remarkable, except that in these years of debate over technology-produced distance among elite players, Titleist emphatically denies that technology is producing significant distance gains. Titleist says that, of course, to fight against efforts to roll back golf ball performance, where Titleist is the leading holder of golf ball patents and the world leader in golf ball sales based on those patents.

    So while Titleist is trying to sell drivers that hit balls farther and straighter (and no doubt really do), and while they might live to say that clearly and plainly; they don’t. Read their promotional statements again for yourself and try to figure out what Titleist really is saying.

        I’ll try to simplify:

        It is really funny and ironic to see Titleist promote their beautiful, farther-hitting drivers without actually saying that players will see additional distances.

        All because Titleist is — HAS TO BE – exquisitely sensitive to the distance debate. Where Titleist’s official anti-regulatory position is that equipment isn’t really producing any significant gains. ‘No need to roll back golf balls; equipment isn’t really producing any gains. Not even our new TSR drivers, or our new Pro V’s…’

        I think Titleist is being modest. I think their equipment is great; and that Titleist tour pros are getting all kinds of significant benefits — very much including distance — out of their new Titleist gear.

        How’d I do this time?

        Look at the Titleist TSR promotional materials. Every new advertisement. It’s all “Speed!”

        Speed-this and speed-that. Huh? Clubhead speed? Ball speed?

        You can’t find Titleist talking about distance. They know that speaking of increased distance is poisonous to the company’s position in the bal-rollback debate.
