Titleist TSR3 Vs Taylormade Stealth Plus Driver Comparison Overview

Titleist TSR3 Vs Taylormade Stealth Plus Driver

Every so often we have to pinch ourselves because it’s hard to believe that our job is to test new drivers like the Taylormade Stealth Plus and the Titleist TSR3.

These drivers represent some of the latest and greatest innovations by two of the industry’s titans.

After testing these two drivers against one another, we have to say that there are some pretty strong parallels and some subtle differences.

In any case, both of these drivers are a joy to swing; but which will actually help improve your game? Let’s find out.

Titleist TSR3 Driver Overview

Titleist TSR3

“The Titleist TSR3 driver features a sliding track weight and a new variable face thickness design.”

Titleist is calling the new face design their “Speed Ring” which refers to the conical shape of the sweet spot.

Thickness has been optimized on the sweet spot so that your accurate strikes go even further than usual.

Indeed, most of our testers were averaging about 7 yard increases on their drives with perfect or near-perfect strikes.

The adjustable weight can be placed into 5 positions: 2 toe positions, 2 heel positions and a neutral position.

This adjustability will help you center the sweet spot according to your swing; but it will also help you compensate for a rightward miss.

In any case, we found the Titleist TSR3 to play long and adjust to the needs of various types of players.

However, it has a compact profile that makes it more ideal for mid handicappers than it does for high handicappers.

Taylormade Stealth Plus Driver Overview

Taylormade Stealth Plus Driver

“The Stealth Plus driver features a carbon fiber face encased in a polyurethane cover.”

This is one of the most innovative drivers we have ever come across but it still has some familiar Taylormade features.

For example, the Stealth plus has the asymmetric inertia generator that places weight far back in the head to increase MOI.

It also has twist face technology which increases forgiveness on low-face shots and increases launch on high-face shots.

The Stealth Plus is also the only driver in the new Stealth line to feature a sliding track weight that can be set in the neutral, draw or fade positions.

Overall the Stealth Plus driver is better for players looking for more forgiveness.

“Better players will surely flock to the Titleist TSR3 while the Taylormade Stealth Plus is a solid game improvement driver.”

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.

Taylormade Stealth Driver – First Impressions

The Taylormade Stealth driver was impressive in almost every respect but we were really interested in testing our first carbon-faced driver.

For the most part, we weren’t disappointed. While it became clear fairly early on that the Taylormade Stealth driver was more for mid to low handicap players, it was awesome to experience something so fresh, new and most importantly, effective.

As you may expect from a Taylormade driver, the Taylormade Stealth features the famed speed pocket and a redesigned inertia generator that was upping the swing speeds of even our higher handicap testers (by 2-3 MPH).

The Stealth Family

The Stealth family includes the Stealth Plus and the Stealth HD drivers. The Stealth Plus is the only one in the line that features a sliding rear weight while the Stealth HD is the only one with internal draw bias.

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.
