PXG 0811 Vs. Titleist TSi3 Driver Comparison Overview

Being able to adjust on the fly is important to a lot of mid to low handicap players. So finding a driver that can keep up with you can be a challenge. In our experience, some drivers with a lot of adjustability features are too gimmicky.

In other words, they don’t help with real-time performance when you need it most. Today we are going to be taking a look at two drivers that promise maximum versatility. Do they deliver? Which is all gimmick and which provides actual substance? Find out in the following comparison overview.

PXG 0811 Driver Overview

The PXG 0811 driver features 16 weights that can be adjusted to hone in the perfect CG for your game.

It also comes with an adjustable hosel that can increase/decrease loft by 1.5 degrees. Our only gripe with this is that half the weights are titanium which is extremely light and doesn’t make much of a difference at all.

In the end though, all this meant was that it took more time to find the perfect weight combination than it did with the Titleist TSi3 driver. The titanium alloy face of this driver felt nice and was producing impressive ball speeds off the tee.

We were able to get a max distance of 276 yards from this driver which was nice – but certainly didn’t make it the longest driver we ever tested. The 0811 family also features the 0811X which has 10 interchangeable weights and is more geared to producing low spin off the tee.

Titleist TSi3 Driver Overview

The TSi3 is ready to go when you are. It also has an adjustable weight that slides into 5 different draw positions.

At the end of the day, the Titleist TSi3 driver doesn’t provide the vast array of CG options that the PXG 0811 driver does. However, we found that we really didn’t need all that super-fine tuning.

We found the TSi3 driver (with it’s 5 weight positions) to be more than enough for what we needed it for.

That all being said, the TSi3 driver was a bit less forgiving than the PXG 0811. The TS family also includes the TSi1 which produces very high launch angles but a bit too much spin for our liking, the TSi2 which is better for ball speed and the Tsi4 which had the lowest spin rates of the bunch.

The Tsi3 also features an adjustable hosel which helps with versatility. Overall, we felt that the TSi3 was a lot less gimmicky. The 5 weight positions are enough for any golfer and it is much easier to tune this driver than the PXG 0811 so you spend more time actually enjoying the game.

The Titleist TSi3 driver delivers decent forgiveness for a club that was designed for mid to low handicappers

PXG 0811 Driver First Impressions

At first glance, we could see that the shape of the 0811 driver face was unique. It was deep (or tall depending on how you want to put it) and made for excellent spin ratio.

Right off the bat, the PXG 0811 driver played long. It worked to dramatically reduce spin off the tee and produced high-arcing shots.

Carry distance was also impressive. To say that this driver played long would be an understatement. Still, for all the distance, the 0811 driver is surprisingly forgiving.

PXG claims that by using a robotic face polishing process, they were able to add a slight curvature to the face. This may be what enhances the spin correction at impact and the forgiveness of this driver.

The 0811 Family

The 0811 driver family also includes the 0811 X Proto driver. The X Proto is the more forgiving driver but it does produce significantly more spin than the standard 0811.

Titleist TSi3 Driver – First Impressions

The Titleist TSi3 driver has a clean design that makes this club an instant hit for Titleist fans.

We couldn’t way to get out to the range and play with the sliding weight. This club really allows for optimal ball placement.

You will also notice that the 460cc head shape is very aerodynamic. You can almost feel the absence of drag on your downswing.

If you are someone that is consistent in their swing, the Titleist TSi3 is an excellent option to consider.

The Tsi Family

The Tsi family also includes the Tsi 2 driver.

The Tsi 2 features a lower CG than the Titleist TSi3 driver for higher launch angles.

The Tsi4 on the other hand has a 425CC head and produces the lowest spin of the bunch.

PXG 0811 Driver  – Who is it for?

This driver would be a good choice for anyone who is looking for a combination of distance and feel.

The minimal spin of this driver can’t be denied. The deep face works in conjunction with the low, back weighting to produce high-arcing shots that carry further.

This is also a surprisingly long driver for PXG. The sloped crown will help if you have a downward attack on your drives.

Of course, the PXG 0811 feels excellent. But we would expect nothing less from a PXG club.

Who Are The TSi3 Drivers For

This driver is best for players who don’t have to worry so much about accuracy and have moved on to shaping their drives.

You get a ton of custom draw and lie options with this driver.

You will still have to have a pretty good swing speed if you want to get maximum distance from this driver; but if you don’t have a fast swing speed, the other drivers in the Tsi family will be better suited to your needs anyway.
