Open Championship – Top-10 Greatest Hits – #2

In 1998, a little known English amateur named Justin Rose very nearly pulled off one of the greatest shocks the sport has ever seen. Tomorrow we reveal our number one - any guesses for what claims our top spot?

The introduction of the new Titleist TS4 driver provides golfers seeking ultra-low spin performance with the speed and distance gains that have made Titleist TS2 and TS3 the most played driver models this season on the PGA Tour.

The new TS4 is engineered to be a high-speed ultra-low spin design – challenging the notion that a driver designed for extreme spin reduction can’t produce this level of ball speed.

Available in Authorised Titleist Retailers from July 27th, TS4 merges technologies developed through the Titleist Speed Project with a low, forward CG that neutralises spin to produce a longer, more piercing ball flight.

“TS drivers have exceeded all our expectations both on tour and with golfers around the world,” said Josh Talge, Vice President of Marketing, Titleist Golf Clubs. “When it comes to driver performance, TS has shown that it’s no longer a one or two-horse race.

“While we know most golfers find their best fit in a TS2 or TS3 driver, there is a percentage of players out there with distinct performance needs, such as aggressive spin reduction. TS4 is the ultra-low spin that still produces exceptional ball speed. If you want to hit it longer but are having trouble controlling spin off the tee, TS4 was made for you.”

TS4 technology and performance

The innovations used to drive ball speed in TS2 and TS3 drivers have been optimised for TS4’s 430cc Speed Chassis, designed to aggressively reduce spin and maximise distance for high-spin players:

Ultra-Thin Titanium Crown. The thinnest cast titanium crown (20% thinner than 917 drivers) in the game allows weight to be redistributed low and forward for reduced spin.

Thinner, Faster Face. The fastest face Titleist has ever made– a refined Radial VFT (variable face thickness) that reduces weight – delivers faster ball speeds and increased forgiveness. Every TS driver face undergoes a 100% CT inspection to ensure speed performance is at the maximum allowable limit.

Streamlined Shape. The aerodynamic design of TS4 – featuring a 430cc classic, pear shape – reduces drag, allowing golfers to swing faster for increased club head speed and more distance.

Low and Forward CG: The low and forward CG position (5mm forward vs. TS2) – highlighted by the placement of the SureFit Flat Weight– produces ultra-low spin for a piercing ball flight that is straighter and more consistent.

Titleist’s patented SureFit Hosel, featuring 16 independent loft and lie settings, allows for additional ball flight optimisation through precision fitting.

“When it comes to ultra-low spin drivers, there’s always going to be some trade-off in terms of MOI,” Talge said. “But for those golfers who create too much spin because of the way they deliver the club head, we know through our player testing that TS4 can give them greater distance consistency versus what they would see in a higher-MOI product.”

Premium stock shafts
Golfers can choose from the same four aftermarket shaft models as TS2 and TS3 – Even Flow T1100 White 65 (Low launch and spin), Hzrdus Smoke Black 60 (Low/mid launch and spin), Tensei AV Series Blue 55 (Mid launch and spin) and Kuro Kage Black Dual Core 50 (High launch and moderate spin). In addition, Titleist offers an industry-leading number of custom shaft choices.

Fittings
Golfers can experience the speed of TS4, along with the existing TS2 and TS3 drivers, by getting fitted at selected retailers, via Titleist Product Specialists and National Fitting Centres from June 20th.

Availability
Available in 8.5, 9.5 and 10.5 lofts (LH 9.5 only) with an SRP of €579.
