Titleist TSi2, TSi3 fairway woods

Available in 13.5-, 15-, 16.5-, 18- and 21-degree versions, the TSi2 was designed to deliver more speed and get the ball high into the air easily.

Titleist has added channels behind the leading edge in the sole of fairway woods for years, but the TSi2 was given an updated version with shorter walls. You can’t see inside the fourth-generation Active Recoil Channel (ARC) because it is covered by a polymer to keep grass, dirt and debris out, and it may sound like a minor detail, but making the channel walls shorter helped Titleist protect ball speed on shots struck low in the hitting area. At the same time, shorter walls are lighter, which creates more discretionary weight.

Titleist also made the TSi2 fairway woods more aerodynamic, so golfers can swing the clubs faster with the same amount of effort. Designers also shifted the center of gravity down and farther back, away from the face, to encourage a higher launch angle. That also helped boost the moment of inertia, so the TSi2 fairways are more stable on mis-hits.

To ensure golfers can hit shots to the ideal distances, each club has a 16-position SureFit hosel that allows players and fitters to independently change the club’s lie angle and its stated loft by as many as 2 degrees.

The weight in the sole is not designed to be adjusted by golfers. It allows fitters to change the club’s swingweight based on custom lengths and player preferences.
