Hot on the heels of the TSR 2 comes its much lighter little brother with Titleist once again reaffirming its commitment to those players who struggle to generate swing speed.

The TSi1 marked a huge step forward for those with swing speeds of less than 90mph and the company has built on that success with an even lighter and tailored driver, fairway wood and hybrid.

Titleist has also produced another impressively good-looking range of clubs. If this was a beauty contest, the TSR1 would see off its rivals with room to spare. All three new clubs, which will be available to buy on February 23rd, are the definition of sleek.

But they are also packed with the kinds of innovations you would expect from one of the market leaders who have a raft of the world’s best players on board, including Cameron Smith, Patrick Cantlay, Will Zalatoris, Justin Thomas and Matt Fitzpatrick.

The TSR1 technology includes:

• Ultra-Lightweight Configuration: TSR1 drivers, fairways and hybrids have been stripped of every non-essential gram of weight from head to grip to ensure the lightest possible build without sacrificing performance.

• Multi-Plateau Variable Face Thickness Design on TSR1 Driver: New VFT technology originally debuted in TSR2, TSR3 (Speed Ring), and TSR4 drivers and is now featured in TSR1, optimising speed retention on off-centre strikes.

• Deep Centre of Gravity (High MOI): The centre of gravity in each TSR1 model is positioned deep, raising MOI and maximising high launch and ball speed. TSR1 drivers feature the deepest CG in a Titleist driver, now almost perfectly centred to the face, while the fairways’ open hosel construction and hybrids’ wood-type profile optimises CG placement.

• Larger footprints: Both TSR1 fairways and hybrids offer maximum forgiveness at impact and confidence over the ball, while the updated shaping of the TSR1 driver sits better at address and aerodynamic improvements help swing it faster through the air.
