Titleist TSi2 Fairway Wood Review
The Titleist TSi2 fairway wood has been designed with the same set of performance goals as the driver - that is to be long, forgiving and easy to launch. What is the performance like you may ask? Well, the TSi2 ranks as one of the best fairway woods on the market. Below, we explain why.
To begin with, Titleist have introduced the fourth generation of its ARC technology - a channel that sits behind the leading edge to deliver greater flex across the face at impact and faster ball speeds. It also has a low, deep centre of gravity to help with launch and forgiveness.
Moving to the looks of the fairway wood at setup and, most notably, there are no real significant differences to that of the TSi3. Unlike the two drivers, the fairway woods are very similar. In fact, if asked to identify which was which behind the ball, we’d be hard pushed to get the right answer!
Positively, they both have an appealing, classic Titleist shape, with the subtle, modern TSi alignment stamp on the crown a big plus. What's worth noting is that the TSi2 is designed to help off-centre strikes, that's why it ranks as one of the most forgiving fairway woods that money can buy.
The performance is also fantastic, with the first notable aspect being the consistency of the flight. Inevitably, with fairway woods, they are often the hardest clubs in the bag to hit well as the strike locations tend to be more inconsistent. However, with the TSi2, the resulting distances and flights were impressively predictable.
What we found, during our fitting, is that the TSi2 was easier to flight than the TSi3. To begin with, we started with a 16.5˚ head, which mirrored that of our current setup. In testing, we were able to decrease the loft to a 15˚, which found more distance without making it less playable out on the golf course. You can check out our full review and comparison below.
The feel through impact was also a standout feature, with the contact sound being powerful without being too dull. It makes you feel like you don't have to swing the club hard to get the ball up in the air.
Overall, we found the Titleist TSi2 to be a superb performer and worthy of its accolade as one of the game's best fairway woods. We found it easy to shape and marginally longer than the TSi3, with the notable factor being its ability to launch slightly more easily.
