The new Titleist TS Driver. Are you for or against?

By: September 20, 2018

Unlike Callaway Golf Rogue driver and TaylorMade M3 driver where the focus was the forgiveness, the developers of the new Titleist TS driver wanted to increase and improve the speed of the Titleist driver.

This is why they gave to this 2-year project the “Titleist Speed Project” name.  You will see below that the designers of the new Titleist TS driver were more daring thus the outlook is more modern.

The TS stands for Titleist Speed. We just have to wait 8 more days to be able to enjoy the new Titleist TS drivers (Sept. 28.):  MAP $499.

Titleist TS Driver 2 and 3

4 innovations in the new Titleist TS drivers – the new Titleist Speed Chassis

  1. Ultra-Thin Titanium Crown. The thinnest cast titanium crown in the game (20 percent thinner than the Titleist 917 drivers) allows the weight to be shifted lower and deeper.
  2. Thinner, Faster Face. The fastest face Titleist has ever made – a refined Radial VFT (variable face thickness) that reduces weight by up to six grams – delivers faster ball speeds and increased forgiveness. The TS face is so thin that the score lines must be lasered on (instead of etched into the face like prior generations).
  3. New Streamlined Shape. Enhanced aerodynamic shaping reduces drag, allowing golfers to swing faster, increasing club head speed for more distance.
  4. Optimized Weight Distribution. Refined crown and variable face thicknesses create the lowest CG ever in a Titleist driver for higher launch and lower spin. The resulting MOI is up to 12 percent higher than Titleist 917 driver, creating a powerful combination of speed and stability.

The new Titleist TS2 lets golfers swing aggressively with maximum forgiveness across the face, while Titleist TS3 offers speed-tuned distance with dynamic forgiveness through SureFit CG.
