Titleist technicians look at hybrids as scoring clubs and design them to replace long irons in the bag. Their newest offerings in that realm are the TSi2 and TSi3 hybrids.
Both models feature Carpenter 455 forged steel faces, with the TSi2 possessing a larger, more classic profile designed for players who fancy the look of a fairway metal. It also is made to promote a high launch and easy distance for players with a sweeping delivery.
As for the TSi3, it has a compact, squarer toe and very little face progression. This club produces more of a mid-launch and is made for those who want iron-like control and hit down on the golf ball.
These two clubs also boast Titleist’s patented SureFit hosel with 16 independent settings for loft and lie, as well as headweight adjustability so golfers can optimize ball flight through precision fitting.
In addition, the TSi3 uses SureFit CG Track Technology that enables a person to adjust the clubhead center of gravity to one of three positions: toe, neutral and heel.
“One of the key points of difference in fitting and performance between the new Titleist TSi hybrids and the competition is the level of adjustability we offer, especially in the TSi3,” said Josh Talge, vice president of golf club marketing for the equipment maker. “We all stress that golfers should be custom fit for drivers and irons, so why not hybrids?”
The TSi2 is available in lofts of 18, 21 and 24 degrees, in right-handed and left-handed options. The TSi3 is offered in 18- and 20-degree versions, also for people who stand on either side of the ball.
