Hybrids are becoming a bigger component of all golfers’ bags. Titleist have always been at the forefront of design and technology when it comes hybrid clubs. The new Titleist TS hybrids represent a new standard in hybrid performance – combining the explosive speed and distance of TS metal woods with the advanced technology that has made Titleist the most played hybrids on the PGA Tour.
TS hybrids made their PGA Tour debut at the Memorial Tournament back in May with the likes of Charley Hoffman, Ian Poulter and Charles Howell III all using one of the new models. The new hybrids are available in-store for consumers to buy from 30th August.but we take a look at them ahead of their general release.
The new TS2 and TS3 hybrids, benefitting from the innovations of the Titleist Speed Chassis, allow players to replace their long irons with even more speed, launch and precision:
- The tremendously forgiving TS2 hybrids maximise performance for players who have a sweeping delivery to the ball – delivering high launch and easy distance. The larger profile is designed for players who prefer the look of a fairway metal.
- The fast-launching TS3 hybrids produce outstanding distance and control for players who hit down on the ball – offering mid launch, precise distance and iron-like control. The compact, square toe shape is designed for players who want more of an iron look.
Titleist are pretty confident that they have something good with the TS hybrids. “Pretty much every golfer we’ve had test a TS hybrid has had the same reaction – these things just go. When it comes to the world of golf clubs..” said Josh Talge, Vice President, Titleist Golf Clubs: “hybrids don’t always generate the type of excitement you see with other categories. But with TS hybrids, our R&D team has developed a hybrid that players will start thinking about as their go-to club. A club they just can’t wait to hit.”

The Techy bit
The improved performance of TS hybrids is driven by the innovative Titleist Speed Chassis, featuring technologies originally developed for TS drivers and fairways and now optimised for each hybrid shape:
- Thinner, faster face. The fastest hybrid face Titleist has ever made (16 percent thinner than prior generation 818 hybrids) – delivers faster ball speeds and increased forgiveness.
- Optimised Weight Distribution. Refined crown and face thicknesses create a lower CG for higher launch and lower spin. The resulting MOI is up to 10 percent higher on average than 818, creating a powerful combination of speed and stability.
Premium stock shafts:
The TS stock shaft lineup extends to TS hybrids with four aftermarket models – KURO KAGE Dual Core Black 60 (High launch and moderate spin), TENSEI AV Series Blue 70 (Mid launch and spin), HZRDUS Smoke Black 80 (Low/mid launch and spin) and Even Flow T1100 White 90 (Low launch and spin) – developed by the game’s top shaft manufacturers using insights from Titleist’s industry-best motion capture and consumer testing.
Two ways to speed:
Like their driver and fairway counterparts, TS hybrids bring more speed to golfers through two distinct designs. The new TS2 is a scoring club built for distance with maximum forgiveness across the face, while TS3 offers outstanding distance with shot-shape customisation through the adjustable Magnetic SureFit CG. Both models feature Titleist’s patented SureFit hosel with 16 independent loft and lie settings to create a more consistent and optimised ball flight through precision fitting.
TS2 – 19º, 21º, 23º, 25º, 27º
TS3 – 17º (RH Only), 19º, 21º, 23º, 25º
TS hybrids will be available at Titleist Authorised Retailers from August 30th 2019.
