Titleist reveal new TS Drivers

Published:

A two-year mission to design greater speed into every detail of driver technology has led to the introduction of the new Titleist TS drivers

The mission – the “Titleist Speed Project,” as it was referenced internally – began with a challenge from the game’s best players to make Titleist drivers as fast as possible. What followed was a relentless pursuit to solicit speed from every micron and milligram of the driver head, culminating with the development of two new driver models - TS2 and TS3 – engineered to deliver faster ball speed with higher launch, lower spin and increased MOI for more distance and game-changing forgiveness.

At the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills, the first week TS (“Titleist Speed”) drivers were available for competition, it became clear the new TS2 and TS3 passed the test. Seventeen players put TS drivers in play – including Justin Thomas, who unleashed a career-long 422-yard drive in Round 1 – an unprecedented shift for the week of a Major Championship. Three starts later, Thomas earned his first World Golf Championships title with a four-shot victory at Firestone, crediting the performance gains of his TS3 driver.

Titleist TS driver speed chassis

The future of “Titleist Speed” is driven by the creation of the new Titleist Speed Chassis, which comprises of four key innovations:

Ultra-Thin Titanium Crown:

The thinnest cast titanium crown in the game (20 percent thinner than 917 drivers) allows weight to be shifted lower and deeper.

New Streamlined Shape:

Enhanced aerodynamic shaping reduces drag by up to 20 percent, allowing golfers to swing faster, increasing club head speed for more distance.

Optimised 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 917, creating a powerful combination of speed and stability.

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 previous generations).

Josh Talge, Vice President, Titleist Golf Club Marketing, said:

"From start to finish, the TS Project was about driving ball speed and unlocking a level of performance that golfers simply couldn’t ignore. In order to do that, we had to look at things differently. We challenged ourselves to deconstruct the driver and then build it back up, piece by piece, to be faster, longer and better in every way possible."

Adding, "R&D had been exploring some unique constructions early on that were really compelling in theory, but they simply couldn’t beat the performance of our all-titanium Speed Chassis. We know performance is the story that golfers care about. From ball speed and distance gains we’re seeing both on tour and with amateur golfers, it’s clear that TS metals deliver a new level of Titleist Speed.”

Titleist TS2  and TS3 drivers

Two ways to speed:

TS drivers bring more speed to golfers through two distinct designs. The new TS2 lets golfers swing aggressively with maximum forgiveness across the face, while TS3 offers speed-tuned distance with dynamic forgiveness through SureFit CG. Both models feature Titleist’s patented SureFit hosel with 16 independent loft and lie settings to create a more consistent and optimised ball flight through precision fitting.

Each of these shafts will be making their market debut with TS drivers.

There's matching fairways too

Titleist TS Fairway woods

The new Titleist TS fairway metals, born from the insights and technical breakthroughs of the Titleist Speed Project are designed to drive faster ball speeds with higher launch, lower spin and increased MOI for more distance and game-changing forgiveness.

The new TS2 and TS3 fairways provide distinct performance benefits similar to their TS2 and TS3 driver counterparts. TS2 is the longest, most forgiving Titleist fairway wood ever, generating explosive speed with forgiveness and accuracy across the face. TS3 delivers speed-tuned performance through Titleist’s adjustable SureFit CG technology with dynamic forgiveness and shot control.

The TS Fairway Speed Chassis comprises of three key innovations:

Ultra-Thin Titanium Crown:

Reduction in crown thickness – 27 percent thinner than the prior generation 917 fairways – allows weight to be shifted lower and deeper

Thinner, Faster Face:

Refined VFT (variable face thickness) delivers faster ball speeds and increased forgiveness.

Optimised Weight Distribution:

Refined crown and face thicknesses create a lower CG for higher launch and lower spin. The resulting MOI is up to 11 percent higher than 917, creating a powerful combination of speed and stability.
