Titleist TSi3 Vs Titleist TSR3 Driver Comparison Overview

Titleist TSi3 Vs Titleist TSR3 Driver

The Titleist TSi3 driver was a favorite among players for its premium appointments and high degree of adjustability.

Today, the Titleist TSR3 driver seeks to supplant the TSi3 with the same kinds of features and a few upgrades.

But do you really need to spend top dollar for the latest TSR3 model? How does it differ from the TSi3?

How is it the same? We will help you decide if an upgrade is in order in the following comparison overview.

Titleist Tsi3 Driver Overview

“The Titleist TSi3 is similar to the newer Titleist TSR3 in most respects. But flight characteristics are a bit different.”

The Titleist TSi3 features a movable weight that can be set in 5 positions: 2 heel positions, 2 toe positions and a neutral position.

This allows you to maximize force behind your strike no matter where you tend to hit on the face. This driver also features aerospace-grade titanium in the face which allows for a high degree of flex/recovery.

The Titleist TSi3 also features an aerodynamic head design and an adjustable hosel. Where the Titleist TSi3 differs the most from the Titleist TSR3 is flight.

The Titleist TSi3 tends to produce a higher launch and slightly sharper descent angles. Not a great formula if you are a mid to low handicapper looking for a boost in overall distance.

However, in true Titleist fashion, the Titleist TSi3 feels amazing on impact and is incredibly consistent across the face.

Titleist TSR3 Driver Overview

Titleist TSR3 Driver

“The Titleist TSR3 has many of the same features as the Titleist TSi3 including a 5-position movable track weight, aerospace-grade titanium face, aerodynamic head design and an adjustable hosel.”

However, Titleist decided to upgrade the face design of the Titleist TSR3. It now features a canonical, variable face design that is meant to improve distance on strikes made in the sweet spot.

Indeed, when you hit the Titleist TSR3 perfectly, you are more than likely to see an increase in ball speed and carry distance.

On average, our testers were seeing 9.2 yard drive increases with the Titleist TSR3 (compared to their gamers). The Titleist TSR3 also produces a lower, faster trajectory than the Titleist TSi3.

“It’s hard to imagine why anyone with a choice would select the Titleist TSi3 over the Titleist TSR3. While very similar in most ways, the Titleist TSR3 is definitely an upgrade in drive distance.”

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.

The Titleist TSR3 Driver First Impressions

When you see the TSR3, your first impression might be that it looks very similar to the preceding TSi3 driver which was game by a ton of tour professionals over the past couple of years.

If you thought that, then you wouldn’t be wrong. The TSR3 sets out to ‘Refine’ the TSi3 without building an entirely new club.

The incremental improvements have been enough to get tour players already wielding the theTSR3 but it remains to be seen whether regular golfers will find it necessary to upgrade to the TSR3 from the TSi3 and in most cases, they probably wouldn’t need to.

The driver has improved on the aerodynamics with the boat trail at the back housing the tungsten weight which can be easily adjusted to your swing style.

The loft and lie can both also be easily adjusted to suit your swing or the course you are playing that day.

The Speed Ring VFT is forgiving on miss hits but when you catch the ball flush on the sweet spot, the ball will fly like a Tesla rocket ship.

All extras have been stripped to reduce weight and drag. The aerospace-grade titanium produces and epic sound and feel.

Another thing to note would be that while Taylormade have gone for Carbon based solutions and vowed never to return to Titanium, Titleist still continue to use Titanium in their drivers.

Overall the club is very confidence-inspiring at the tee box.

Who Is The TSR3 Driver For?

The TSR3 is the most tour-preferred driver out of the 4 on offer in the TSR range.

The driver is long, fast and consistent and you can really dial the club in to your own specific swing.

The better players will love to fine tune the performance of the TSR3 at a driver fitting and the performance of the TSR3 is going to get the sales.

It doesn’t have the flamboyant looks of the Taylormade Stealth or a Cobra driver but when you get to the Tee Box, the TSR3 is one of the best performing drivers ever produced.

the face is confidence inspiring and the sound and feel make you want to hit the club again and again.

The driver will best suit players who can hit the sweet spot more often than not but it has to forgiveness to make it gameable for mid handicappers and upwards.

If you’ve got the money to splash out on a premium driver and hit the ball well, the TSR3 should be high on your list of potential new clubs.

The Titleist TSR Family of Drivers

There are 4 clubs in the TSR family with the lightweight TSR1 not coming out until early 2023.

The TSR2 is the max version with a good deal of forgiveness coming from the Multi Plateau VFT. This will suit beginners most favorably but can also be used by mid to low-handicappers.

The TSR4 is the most configurable of the drivers, you can dial it into to your exact swing easily but it sacrifices a little bit of speed in doing so. This one is for the shot placers.

Distance: 97/100

Accuracy: 94/100

Forgiveness: 93/100

Feel & Control: 95/100

Overall Score: 95/100
