What we say...

The new Titleist TSi2 and TSi3 fairways have a new aerodynamic shape and a channel behind the golf club's face for more flex, higher launch, lower spin, faster balls speeds and more consistency.

Two years on from their TS (Titleist Speed) fairways, Titleist have launched the TSi2 and TSi3 – ‘i’ describing the impact, innovation and inertia you’ll find in the new models.

The TSi2 and TSi3 fairway woods are speed-tuned to get the clubhead moving faster than ever and provide more distance across the face.

Titleist say TSi’s speed is thanks to key innovations, including an improved fourth-generation Active Recoil Channel (ARC) behind the face. ARC 4.0 features a shorter channel wall, which provides more face flex, a higher launch, lower (and more consistent) spin and increased ball speed.

The fairways have a high-speed VFT face which works with ARC 4.0 to maximise ball speed and forgiveness across the face, while the more compact design has seen five grams of weight redistributed to boost MOI and create a fast, stable and forgiving clubhead.

As with the TSi drivers, a high-contrast graphic face design makes alignment a breeze, while the softer toe profile requested by Titleist's tour pros also moves into the fairway woods and gives a square look at address.

A SureFit hosel provides 16 independent loft and lie settings, while an adjustable headweight (in two-gram increments, ranging from -4g to 4g) lets you create the ideal and consistent ball flight for your game.

Since their September introduction more than 100 players have switched into the TSi faiways, including Cameron Smith, Ian Poulter, Ben An, Lanto Griffin, Charles Howell III, Will Zalatoris, Bill Haas and Jimmy Walker.

Titleist are expected to add further models to the TSi line in the coming months. TSi4 has already been seen on the USGA Conforming List and in the bag of at least one PGA Tour pro and, while Titleist are yet to confirm a TSi1, we fully expect to see such a model aimed at golfers with slower swing speeds.

Which Titleist TSi fairway wood is right for me?

Titleist TSi2

As with the TSi2 drivers, the fairway wood is a modern-shaped club aimed at players who want to launch it high with maximum forgiveness. TSi2 provides speed and accuracy across the clubface along with maximum distance and forgiveness thanks to a deeper and lower fixed centre of gravity. There's also an adjustable swingweight, along with the SureFit hosel, to enable the club to be perfectly fitted for your needs.

Titleist TSi3

TSi3 has a smaller profile with a deeper face. It targets consistent ball-strikers who want to be able to work the ball and have precise control over the centre of gravity placement.

Titleist’s three-setting SureFit CG Track allows the fairway wood’s CG to be easily moved from neutral to a toe or heel bias for fine-tuned performance. The upgraded track design allows the 12g weight to disappear into the sole of the club after adjustment.

What are the Titleist TSi fairway wood shaft options?

The featured shaft line-up includes four new aftermarket models – KURO KAGE Black DC (High launch, mid spin), TENSEI AV Series Blue Raw (Mid launch and spin), HZRDUS Smoke Black RDX (Low/mid launch and spin) and TENSEI AV Series White Raw (Low launch and spin)

For an additional £170 you can add one of three premium shafts from Graphite Design. The Graphite Design Tour AD DI, Graphite Design Tour AD IZ and Graphite Design Tour AD XC (Xtra Carry) are engineered with aerospace-quality carbon-fibre materials for incredible stability, consistency and feel and among the most coveted shafts on Tour.

What about the Titleist TSi grip and headcovers?

The grip is the Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grey flat cap, which is designed for adjustable drivers, fairway woods, and hybrids. It features the popular look and feel of the Tour Velvet non-slip surface pattern in a 360-degree design, with double-dash rings on both ends for a consistent appearance regardless of shaft orientation or adjustments.

The headcovers are emblazoned with 'TSi' in a clean and stylish design using a black, white, grey and red colour combination.

What Titleist are saying about their TSi2 and TSi3 fairways

Josh Talge, Vice President of Titleist Golf Club Marketing

“Our metalwoods engineers continue to find new ways to generate speed and distance in our fairway designs without giving up any of the performance characteristics that players demand from a Titleist golf club.

"TSi fairways are faster, straighter and easier-to-hit than ever – and deliver an experience at impact that many golfers would never expect from a fairway wood.”

Stephanie Luttrell, Director of Titleist Metalwood Development

“The fourth generation of Active Recoil Channel continues to drive incredible speed performance for us in our fairway designs.

"It is such a key technology in fairway metals because of where the impact happens, low on the face. Typically, those strikes from the turf would come off the face much slower, but ARC keeps the face flexing through impact to preserve the speed players need to reach their target.”
