Titleist TSR drivers

Best Titleist Drivers 2024

What are the best Titleist drivers you should be gaming in 2024?

 

They’re best known for producing one of the finest golf balls ever made, but that’s not the only trick up their sleeve.

In fact, they produce some of the best golf clubs your money can get you. For this buying guide, we’re focussing on their drivers.

The brand’s latest TSR range of drivers are designed to be the best golf drivers for distance, whilst at the same time they also prove to be the most forgiving drivers that money can buy.

This line up consists of the TSR1 driver, TSR2 driver, TSR3 driver and, you guessed it, the TSR4 driver – each with their own unique characteristics to suit different players’ demands.

Still undecided about whether to game a Titleist driver this season? Just ask the likes of Patrick Cantlay, Cameron Smith or Matt Fitzpatrick, because they swear by them.

Alternatively, if Titleist is not for you, we have also created best driver guides for other brands too – such as the best Cobra drivers, best Ping drivers and best Mizuno drivers.

Best Titleist Drivers 2024


Titleist TSR1 driver

4.5 star review

Reviewed by Jack Backhouse

I am a huge fan of Titleist’s TSR range, and the new TSR1 driver seems to round off the series nicely. As with all Titleist drivers, it feels like a premium product and really well-built. Behind the ball, it’s a confidence-inspiring shape, and with it also feeling so light in your hands, you get the impression that you can swing hard and generate some speed but still expect consistent results.

The magic of Titleist’s TSR range is that you go for a fitting for a TSR, not a specific model. This is because Titleist wants you in the best possible driver for your game and have no preconceived notions about what head and shaft combination that may end up being.

After the first strike, I felt like an idiot. The ball came off the face pretty low, and where I would normally look to see the ball in flight, there was nothing there. The ball instead was about 30 ft higher than I was expecting and still in the air long after I thought it would be.

I hit a few more shots with it and was really impressed with how easy it was to hit and how effortlessly I was able to get the ball in the air higher than I ever have. The first shaft I tried was the TSR1 specific shaft which is only 40g, and I loved it. The ball was spinning way too much to be optimal, but I didn’t want to stop using it as it was just so much fun.

Overall this is a great addition to the TSR line-up; it will help slower players hit it higher and further whilst also helping low-spin players enjoy hitting driver more often. It won’t be for everyone, but it will help many golfers enjoy their games more.

Pros:

  • High launching
  • Super light
  • Really forgiving

Cons:

  • Not the best option for high-spin players


RRP: £529

Right-handed lofts: 9°, 10°, 12°

Left-handed lofts: 10° (9° and 12° custom only)

Titleist featured shafts: Mitsubishi MMT SpeedMesh 40 (Men’s) and 35 (Ladies)

Titleist TSR2 driver

4.5 star review
Titleist TSR2 driver review
Reviewed by Hannah Holden

The re-shaping Titleist has done here is exceptional. The aerodynamics research has led to a completely different head shape and I love the deeper more compact styling. I also love the details they have added such as the rounding in on the toe which was immensely popular in the TSi3 driver.

Straight away I was blown away by this driver. I love how Titleist have made the club head more compact, it definitely has more of a player’s feel at address and makes you feel like you are going to be able to get the club head moving fast.

I was really pleased with this increase in distance in the two model as last year I opted to use the TSi3 model over the TSi2 purely from a ball speed and distance perspective. While this was great purely from a speed point of view it meant I was sacrificing in other areas.

Overall I was so impressed with this driver in testing, it has gone straight into my golf bag!

Pros:

  • Smaller more refined shaping
  • Fast ball speeds across the face
  • Forgiving on off centre strikes

Cons:

  • Not as workable as other models


RRP: £529; £699 with premium shaft

Right-handed lofts: 8°, 9°, 10°, 11°

Left-handed lofts: 9°, 10°, 11° (8° custom only)

Titleist featured shafts: Hzrdus Red CB, Tensei AV Blue with XLink Tech, Hzrdus Black, Tensei 1K Black

Premium shafts: Graphite Design Tour AD UB, Tour AD DI, Tour AD IZ

Titleist TSR3 driver

4 star review
Titleist TSR3 driver review
Reviewed by Hannah Holden

Titleist hasn’t done much with the shaping of the three model. After all, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. TSi3 players will be pleased to hear it looks almost identical over the golf ball and retains that classic small player profile head.

I think the shaping of this is still my favourite in the TSR driver line-up. It is very tour inspired and for the better player definitely inspires confidence over the ball.

Compared to the TSi3, I feel this performed very similar, but I think faster club speed players who get more spin than me would get more out of this model.

Overall I got pretty good club head speed and distance with this but my spin was slightly too inconsistent. This was purely down to my strikes locations, but it is clear to see this model isn’t as forgiving as the TSR2 option.

Pros:

  • Smaller more refined shaping
  • Fast ball speeds across the face
  • CG can be customised to your swing

Cons:

  • Not as forgiving on off centre strikes


RRP: £529; £699 with premium shaft

Right-handed lofts: 8°, 9°, 10°, (11° custom only)

Titleist TSR4 driver

4 star review
Titleist TSR4 driver review

Reviewed by Hannah Holden

Straight away over the ball, you can see this is a better players club. We have a smaller pear-shaped 430cc head with a deeper club face than other models in this range. Although this is very attractive, I would think for the majority of golfers; this might be more intimidating than confidence-inspiring.

The TS4 driver is basically two products in one. This is because are two ways you can configure the sole weights to either maximise spin reduction or maximise forgiveness.

I was really impressed with how much performance I got out of this, as I didn’t think it was a model that would suit my game. I got my highest club head speed of any TSR model with this, which gave me an impressive average carry distance of 238.5 yards.

Overall this is a great addition to the TSR line-up, but it works for a very specific type of player who wants to reduce spin and doesn’t need massive amounts of forgiveness.

Pros:

  • Smaller, more refined shaping
  • Low spin option
  • CG can be customised to your swing

Cons:

  • Not as forgiving on off-centre strikes


RRP: £529; £699 with premium shaft

Right-handed lofts: 8°, 9°, 10°

The Best Titleist drivers 2024

How do we test drivers?

At National Club Golfer we are passionate about producing accurate and thorough reviews and make sure our testing process is rigorous so we get a good understanding of how each club performs.

Each driver is hit with TP5 golf balls to allow us to collect launch monitor data with our in-house TrackMan and Flightscope. After this it is time to head out onto the golf course and test the clubs in practice and competition play. We do this across a variety of golf clubs in our base of Yorkshire.

What is important when buying a new driver?

When buying a new driver it is important to know what you want from that club to help you improve.

Most people are looking for more distance, each driver model is optimised for different things. Depending on your swing and your impact conditions, you may not actually hit the model that is advertised as the longest, the furthest. So if you want more distance it is always worth giving different models a hit before you make a decision.

For most golfers, especially high handicappers, something that is more forgiving is going to yield the best performance. Most forgiving golf drivers have a slightly bigger club head with perimeter weighting for high MOI. They also have a center of gravity that is further back to help players get more height on their shots.

Do you want something that is draw bias? There are so many models out there to help with slice correction, it would be silly not to take a look if you see your ball disappearing into the right trees too often. A closed face and draw bias weighting can get you hitting straighter shots in no time at all.

Don’t forget about the shaft either. Getting the correct shaft can help dial in your spin, launch angle and can also give you some extra distance. Having a club fitting or trying different options with your local pro can really improve the performance of your new driver.

The Best Titleist Drivers 2024: FAQ’s

What is the latest Titleist driver?

The TSR line from TaylorMade includes all their latest driver models. There are a total of four options available, the TSR1 is the most forgiving model, and is also the longest. The TSR2 boasts the fastest ball speeds across the face, the TSR3 is Titleist’s low-spin offering aimed at mid to low handicappers and the TSR4 features the smallest head.

What’s different in the latest Titleist drivers?

Titleist are back for 2023 with the replacement to last year’s TSi range. The line-up includes four drivers in total.

Titleist TSR1

The TSR1 driver understandably shares a lot of technology with the rest of the TSR driver family. The big difference is it is built for ultra-lightweight speed and distance.

Over one-third of golfers worldwide fit into the moderate speed category, which Titleist are categorising at under 90mph. So a lot of golfers could benefit from a lighter set-up that delivers more speed and distance.

The TSR1 is roughly 40 grams lighter than its sister club, the TSR2. Weight savings are made by having a lighter headweight, 40-gram shaft and lightweight grip.

Aerodynamics have been improved to get the club head moving as fast as possible through the air. It has a similar “boat tail” shape as we see in the TSR2 to help golfers move the club head faster in the air.

Multi-Plateau Variable Face Thickness technology helps keep ball speed high on off-centre hits, while a deep CG increases launch and provides exceptional ball speed.

What Titleist drivers do the pros use?

If you’re still undecided about whether to game a Titleist driver this season, just ask the likes of Patrick Cantlay, Cameron Smith or Matt Fitzpatrick, because they swear by them.
