Titleist TSi2 Vs Titleist TSi3 Driver Comparison Overview
The Titleist TSi2 and Titleist TSi3 drivers fall into the same tradition as other TS lines.
The Titleist TSi2 has the linger head from front to back and the Titleist TSi3 has a more pear-shaped profile with the addition of a sliding CG track weight.
All of this is pretty obligatory if you have been following Titleist clubs over the last decade or so. But we wanted to suss out the subtle differences between these two drivers. So we tested them side-by-side in the following comparison overview.
Titleist TSi2 Driver Overview
“The Titleist TSi2 looks really clean both in the bag and at address.”
We really love how, compared to the TS2 driver, the Titleist TSi2 goes back to what makes Titleist clubs so desirable: beautiful design and consistency. Even though the Titleist TSi2 has an elongated head, it still has classic Titleist lines.
And the Titleist TSi2 features aerospace-grade titanium in the face so it is much more consistent than the TS2 model. The hallmark of the performance of this club is forgiveness. Just like the TS2, the Titleist TSi2 driver was made to be forgiving.
Indeed, the off-line divergence during our testing never exceeded 10 yards – and that includes pretty gnarly mis-hits. So much of the face seems to be the sweet spot that it was hard to tell by feel alone when we actually mis-hit.
Titleist TSi3 Driver Overview
“The Titleist TSi3 features the same ATI 425 aerospace titanium face and a much more symmetrical head profile.”
In fact, we should mention that the Titleist TSi2 is actually a bit toe biased whereas the Titleist TSi3 puts the alignment marker and mass in the center of the head. The Titleist TSi3 definitely rewards a player who can find face center consistently.
Toe-side mis-hits were losing more ball speed compared to the same kinds of strikes with the Titleist TSi2. However, the versatility of the Titleist TSi3 was outstanding. In addition to the 16-position SureFit hosel, the TSi3 features a sliding CG weight with 5 positions. So even if you are mis-hitting with this driver, you can spend some time and effort finding a face angle/CG placement that works for you.
“Even with the reduced natural forgiveness, the Titleist TSi3 is the better overall driver because it can be made to be nearly as forgiving as the Titleist TSi2 by adjusting CG.”
