Callaway Rogue ST Max Vs Titleist TSR2 Driver Comparison Overview

Callaway Rogue ST Max Vs Titleist TSR2

Everyone knows that Callaway makes some of the most forgiving and highest-performing game improvement drivers on the market.

Titleist on the other hand has sort of cultivated a reputation that caters more to pro-level players.

Which is why we were pleasantly surprised when we got our hands on the Titleist TSR2.

It was clear from the very beginning that the Titleist TSR2 was designed for high handicap players struggling with accuracy.

But how would it hold up against one of Callaway’s latest and greatest game-improvement drivers?

Callaway Rogue ST Max Hybrid Overview

Callaway Rogue ST Max Driver

“The Callaway Rogue ST Max has set a new standard for what it means for a driver to be forgiving and play long.”

The Callaway Rogue ST Max features a ridiculous 26 gram tungsten cartridge which is placed low and back in the head.

The additional weight gives even your errant shots a better chance at reaching max velocity so both forgiveness and distance are almost instantly improved.

The Rogue ST Max also feels surprisingly stable. The CG is nice and low and thanks to a titanium chassis that sits lower and supports this large footprint head (460cc), you get better stability when you give it your all with this driver.

The Rouge ST Max is a great driver for high handicappers because it will instantly boost your confidence from the tee.

When you look down, you can see how big the head is and of course, that means an expansive sweet spot to take advantage of.

Titleist TSR2 Driver Overview

Titleist TSR2 Driver

“The Titleist TSR2 has a 460cc head and comes in 8, 9, 10 and 11 degree versions.”

One of the most prominent features of the Titleist TSR2 is the low/forward weight positioning.

While most game-improvement drivers are trying to move weight as far back as possible, Titleist is taking a page out of the Cobra playbook and shifting weight forward.

This helps reduce spin, drag, and increases distance. And for forgiveness, Titleist has incorporated an advanced variable face thickness design to increase ball speed and stability across the majority of the face.

“The Callaway Rogue ST Max and Titleist TSR2 go about forgiveness and distance in very different ways.

While the Titleist TSR2 is certainly a viable option for mid to high handicappers, the Rogue ST Max is still the most beneficial driver overall – if you’re a high handicapper.”

Callaway Rogue ST Hybrid First Impressions

Callaway have really outdone themselves on this hybrid. Straight away we could feel the forgiveness and could see the ball visually going further than previous models.

It has 4 loft options, 3 – 6 Hybrid, unfortunately there is no loft sleeve, we felt this was a downside as playing around with the loft can really help you dial in your trajectory and distances.

We could feel the technology working, from miss hits to shots out of the middle, this club performed unbelievably on every shot. We were really impressed with the Jailbreak A.I. system, and the results showed.

This hybrid is very easy to launch, they have been able to place the CG in specific positions to help with launch, making it easier to get the ball into the air.

The Callaway Hybrid Family

The Rogue ST has 3 other models in the family; Rogue ST Max OS, Rogue ST Max OS Lite and Rogue ST Pro.

The Rogue ST Max and Rogue ST Max OS are your oversized options, mainly for your higher handicap player, they both have quite a bit of offset. Because of this they are draw biased. Something to consider if you struggle with a fade or slice.

Rogue ST Pro is for your better player, your more traditional looking Hybrid, it has a neutral shot shape and promotes a low launch and spin profile. Stay away from this model if you are a higher handicap player.

The Titleist TSR2 Driver First Impressions

The first thing to notice about this club is head shaping. Titleist have gone for a more classic look in the most stable and forgiving offering in the TSR Range.

That means a Boat Trail at the trailing edge of the club and a rounder smooth curvature that Titleist Traditionalists will love, it looks like a Titleist driver.

All the frills have been removed from the sole of the club and the result again is more minimalist and clean.

Multi Plateau Variable Face Thickness allows this club to be extremely consistent in regard to ball speed and direction. It’s got an incredibly thin face in the middle with strategically thicker areas to the side.

This results in consistent ball speed and flight path when hit in common miss locations on the face.

This ensures that the TSR2 is the ‘Max’ version of this series and will suit players who struggle to hit the sweet spot every time.

This driver produces more club head speed, ball speed, and carry distance than the TSi2. It also has less spin, a lower launch angle, and more consistency resulting in an excellent new driver overall for Titleist.

The club has plenty of options for adjustments too, you can adjust the lie and loft independently with the club lofts running from 8 degrees to 11.

The TSR2 is certainly an upgrade on the TSi2 for us and is a club that will suit both tour and amateur players this season.

Who Is The TSR2 Driver For

The TSR2 Driver is going to suit all golfers from Tour Professionals, to those trying to improve their handicap with longer, more consistent shots.

The TSR range is probably not going to be a good bet for a high handicapper unless they want to fork out substantial money for this amazing club in place of something second hand or less expensive.

That being said, the TSR2 is aimed at the player who struggles to hit the center of the club face consistently.

If you are a High to Mid Handicapper, this driver is likely to bring optimal consistency to your game, especially when dialled into your own personal swing dynamics.

This is a premium club for those who want the very best performance from their driver.

The club is high launching and with low spin for those that that will suit.

If you have a slice or hook, the VFT and inviting face may have a lot to offer your game.

This is also for golf who want to impress their friends and golf mates with an epic driver from the tour players’ favorite brand.

Titleist was disappointed that Tour players were not using the TSi2 and this big improvement should get more of the biggest names in golf wielding the club in the coming seasons.

The TSR Family Of Drivers

The TSR is the most accurate and forgiving of the clubs and is available now.

The TSR1 is the lightweight, further stripped down version with a lighter shaft and higher loft for seniors and those with slower swing speeds.

The TSR3 is for the players and those who strike the ball consistently already. It has a changeable Center of Gravity placement.

It has a slightly lower launch and low levels of spin too, an excellent option for the better ball strikers.

Distance: 95/100
