Titleist TSR1 drivers, fairway woods, hybrids

Gear: Titleist TSR1 drivers, fairway woods, hybrids

Who They’re For: Slower-swinging golfers who need more ball speed and height on shots to maximize distance.

The Skinny: Titleist made the TSR1 drivers, fairway woods and hybrids more aerodynamic and designed them as part of a lightweight package that can help players who have slower and moderate clubhead speed generate more distance.

The Deep Dive: As launch monitors became integral to custom fitting over the past few decades, fast-swinging golfers learned to maximize distance by combining a high launch angle with low spin. More and more pros learned to swing up into their tee shots to get the most out of their low-spin clubs and balls, but that combination does not work for everyone. According to the USGA and R&A’s Distance Insights reports, about 30 percent of golfers swing at a “moderate” speed around 75 to 90 mph, instead of 110 or more generated by most pros. These amateur golfers don’t generate enough speed to keep a low-spin shot in the air, so they can be robbed of distance.

Titleist engineers noted this and created the TSi1 drivers, fairway woods and hybrids for them two years ago. In 2023 those clubs are updated to help moderate-speed players swing faster, gain carry distance and achieve more overall distance.
