Titleist Drivers Over The Last 5 Years
In 2022, Titleist released the their newest line of drivers – the TSR. Although there is no TSR1 this time, the line up does include the TSR2, TSR3, and TSR4.
The TSi (1,2,3 and 4) was released in 2020 and 2021. The TSi2 and TSi3 were released in late 2020, while the TSi1 and TSi4 were released in early 2021.
TSi stands for Titleist Speed Impact. But honestly, it’s not the acronym that matters, it’s the performance… right?!
The TSi family is one of the top driver lines out today, and definitely competes with the other big OEM’s, even those who release new drivers every year (which Titleist does not).
All 4 drivers in the family have their place, and will fit different golfers accordingly. The TSi2 vs TSi3 is the biggest debate in the driver line.
Check out our reviews of each driver below:
- Titleist TSi1 Review (best for low handicap and fixing a slice)
- Titleist TSi2 Review (best for mid handicap)
- Titleist TSi3 Review (best for low handicap and pros)
- Titleist TSi4 Review (best for sub zero handicap and pros)
Before that, it was the TS line (no “I” a the end) in 2018 with the TS1, TS2, TS3, and TS4. TS stands for Titleist Speed.
And even before the TS line began, still a somewhat recent driver was the D917 D2 and D3.
Going back a little further, Titleist started the 2000’s with the 975J in 2001, and the infamous Pro Titanium line in 2003 and 2005.
How It All Started
Titleist, actually under the official name of Acushnet Company, was founded in 1932 by Phillip E. Young (who graduated from MIT by the way). Young has missed a “sure” putt while playing a round with his dentist. He was sure it was due to the uneven weight of the ball, so he asked the dentist to X-ray the ball.
The x ray showed that the rubber core was off centered. So Young decided he was going to develop a machine that could uniformly wind rubber into a “dead center” golf ball.
And thus, the #1 ball in golf was born!
It wouldn’t be until 1984 that Titleist produced their first driver, only known as metal woods back then.
