Best Titleist Golf Drivers 2022

Published:

Titleist has long been one of the most influential golf brands and although it is most famous for making balls, it has been producing drivers for more than 30 years.

It is the preferred option of a plethora of the world’s leading players, including Justin Rose (TSi4), Billy Horschel (TSi3), Patrick Cantlay (TS3), Matt Fitzpatrick (TSi3), Justin Thomas (TSi3), Max Homa (TSi3) and Jordan Spieth (TSi3).

While Titleist has long targeted more elite players, in 2021 it introduced the TSi1 for those with slower swing speeds and the results were pretty impressive in terms of yardage gained.

If you like Titleist’s range of golf products, you should also check out our feature on the best Titleist irons plus take a look at which Titleist ball is best for you.

But here is our selection of best Titleist drivers…

The Titleist TSi3 is one of the best Titleist Golf drivers

What Titleist say…

The TSi3 has a more compact, traditional pear shape (than the TSi2), which Titleist say tends to be a good fit for more consistent ball strikers and golfers looking for control and influence over their driver ball flight.

Today’s Golfer drivers test verdict…

The TSi3 was among our six favourite low-spin drivers last year, but thanks to the performance of TaylorMade’s Stealth Plus it doesn’t quite replicate that in 2022. It’s still no slouch when it comes to low-spin performance, though.

Compared to our very best, the TSi3 was 14 yards back from the tee box, and thanks to 150% more drop-off distance (than our best low-spin driver) between our test pro’s longest and shortest shots, you can see why the model is more workable due to it being less forgiving. It is a cracking player’s driver, but don’t forget the model’s now into its second year, so should be scheduled for an update later this year.

Today’s Golfer drivers test verdict

It feels like an age since the TSi family launched back in late 2020, but our test pro’s data shows the TSi2 (tied third longest with Ping G425 Max and Mizuno ST-Z 220) is still a force to be reckoned with.

We don’t love its head shape, but it does what exactly it’s supposed to. Even after two years, it’s still one of the most expensive drivers out there, and because there was an update scheduled for later in 2022, despite the decent performance, we reckon it’s difficult to get fully behind the model right now.

Titleist are happy building their reputation of making great drivers for better players, but that means their more forgiving drivers and irons don’t always get the credit they deserve. 

The Titleist TSi2 is for golfer who don’t always find the middle of the driver face. Titleist say the TSi2 is great at delivering consistent spin on impacts up and down the face, so you get more consistent performance, strike after strike. 

In our test, the Titleist TSi2 was every bit as good as other leading models when it came to distance, but the drop-offs in ball speed, spin and carry on mishits were bigger than most. Taking that into account, and a £519 price tag, it’s not quite an award winner for us.

The Titleist TSi4 is one of the best Titleist Golf drivers

The TSi4 was launched alongside the TSi1 in 2021 to provide an extreme low-spin option for those players who create a consistently good contact.

The face is made from ATI 425 Aerospace Titanium, which was originally designed for combat purposes (armour) but now has much more widespread use.

The head is relatively small (425cc) and the low-lying and relatively forward CG positioning enhances launch for those who regularly hit the ball solidly (swing speeds over 100mph). There is less forgiveness but better players won’t mind that.

The Titleist TSi1 is one of the best Titleist Golf drivers

The TSi 1 is the option for those with slower speeds (Titleist reckon 90mph and below) plus there is also a 12° loft angle option, which is a rare thing indeed for Titleist drivers.

It is also considerably lighter than its TSi cousins (about 40gs) while the CG is much more central compared to the TS1, which helps generate more ball speed.

The Titleist TS3 is one of the best Titleist Golf drivers

The hugely-popular TS3 driver was launched in 2018 and caused a huge stir. The sight of the slight Justin Thomas powering it 422 yards down the fairway at Shinnecock Hills in the US Open that year caused ripples in the industry.

In fact Patrick Cantlay was still using it in 2022 and Titleist’s relentless pursuit to solicit speed from every micron and milligram of the driver head, certainly came together in the TS2 and TS3 models, which still deliver incredible ball speed with higher launch, lower spin and increased MOI for more distance and game-changing forgiveness.

That was partly down to the-then thinnest cast titanium crown in the game (20 per cent thinner than Titleist’s 917 drivers) which allowed weight to be shifted lower and deeper.

Also enhanced aerodynamic shaping reduced drag by up to 20 per cent compared to the 917, allowing golfers to swing faster, increasing club head speed for more distance.

Titleist 915 D2 driver

RRP £449 | VIEW OFFER
Lofts:
 9.5° / 10.5° | Stock shafts: Project x Even Flow Blue 55

The Titleist 915 D2 might have been launched all the way back in 2016 but it still has so much to offer and its price on Golfbidder represents great value.

The pear-shaped profile inspired confidence back then and will do now and the active recoil channel still holds its own, maximising flex at impact and a speed face that maintains ball speed even when you don’t hit the centre of the face.

How we tested the golf drivers

• We created an indoor test lab at Keele Golf Centre to ensure a controlled environment

• The leading brands supplied their 2022 drivers in our Test Pro Neil Wain’s spec. Draw models and those aimed at more moderate speeds were sent in Equipment Editor Simon Daddow’s spec.

• We used premium TaylorMade TP5x golf balls and a Foresight GC Quad launch monitor to create the most reliable data possible.

• We rejected major misses but recorded how shots launched, span, peaked and dropped out of the air, before crunching the numbers to come up with our conclusions.
