The Titleist TSR3 Driver Review – The Latest Addition For Precision Strikers
The latest addition to Titleist ‘Speed’ drivers collection, the TSR3 looks to build on the treemendous success fo the Tsi3 which has been the most used driver on tour for the past number of years.
The TSR3 sets out to offer distance and speed to golfers who tend to hit the ball flush and there is also plenty of adjustability to dial it right into your own personal swing.
Overall The TSR3 is going to offer the maximum club head speed, ball speed, and precision tuning out of the 4 part TSR series, this is the club we would expect to see the majority of the tour players carrying in the 2023 season.
So what’s new in the TSR3 Driver?
The R in TSR stands for refinement, so we need not expect a full tearing down and building back up of the TSR3.
The TSi3 was a very successful club and the TSR3 looks very similar with minimal changes to the cosmetic look of the club.
But that is what Titleist gamers want, the classic Titleist look and they are more concerned with the performance they get from the club when the let the big dog bark.
When you set out to ‘Refine’ a very successful club and the name of the said club has the word ‘Speed’ in it, then a good idea will be to have speed as one of the base attributes you are looking to improve.
The TSR3 has accomplished this by making the head shape more aerodynamic with a boat trail now included to reduce friction between the club and air during the swing.
All frills have been removed from the sole of the club to improve swing speed too, (Yes, it’s hard to upgrade on the huge success of the TSR2!)
The swing weight is also placed in the boat trail in the TSR3 and the overall result is reduced drag.
Speed Ring Face
While the TSR2 and the TSR4 have the Multi Plateau Variable Face Technology that delivers straight shots on mishits, the TSR3 has a Speed Ring face which delivers the best CT/COR when hit flush with the sweet spot.
That being said, the variable face technology of the new speed ring, is also going to offer consistency on mishits, just not as much as the TSR2 and the TSR4.
Sure Fit Hosel And CG
This driver is highly adjustable and can be fine-tuned easily to suit your game.
On the sole of the club is the sure fit CG, allowing you to adjust the weight and Center of Gravity to suit the exact way you swing the club.
The Sure fit hosel also allows you to adjust the loft and lie of your club independently of each for optimal performance, dialed into your own specific game.
A tour players preferred shape with distance and speed at the core of its classic Titleist design.
With a raft of unsigned pros using the TSR3 already, we know that is going to be a massive success.
The club is also confidence inspiring at address with the sound and feel doing little to dampen our enthusiasm.
We feel that this driver will go down as a classic from Titleist and if you are a mid handicapper with the budget for a premium driver, it will be hard to find a better performing club on the market today.
