First Look: Everything we know about the new Titleist GT drivers as they hit the PGA Tour

Everything we know about the new Titleist GT2, GT3, and GT4 Drivers

Very few people would argue that Titleist models are not among the best drivers on tour. But two years on from the reveal of the previous TSR metals the company are ready to introduce the brand new Titleist GT drivers to tour players this week at The Memorial Tournament in Ohio, USA.

Soon-to-be launched clubs often appear on the USGA and R&A conforming lists way before products arrive at retail, historically Titleist like to introduce new products to their tour staff before rolling out the new franchise at retail a few months later. Today is the first time the new Titleist GT drivers have been spotted online or at a tour event, and Thursday 6th June 2024 will be the first time the new models will be eligible for play by the world’s best.

The introduction of the new Titleist GT2, GT3, and GT4 drivers this week at Muirfield Village signals the start to the brand’s tour seeding and validation process that will continue over the coming weeks and months across worldwide professional tours. The new Titleist GT Fairway Woods are also making their debut in Ohio.

Titleist say they’ve collaborated with the game’s best players throughout the GTs R&D process, and it’s vital the new models earn their final tour validation, which is the foundation to the development of all high-performance Titleist golf equipment. 

“The whole Titleist Golf Club R&D team from top to bottom is obsessed with making things as good as they can and have such a deep understanding of PGA Tour golfers,” said Titleist Brand Ambassador Cameron Young. “They’ve seen everything, and there’s no little thing that you can bring to them that isn’t fixable or something they can’t experiment with. They all have such a deep knowledge of the equipment, there’s always a solution to what you’re looking for.” 

Titleist say their Tour Representatives will be working with players over the next three days at the Memorial, and over the coming weeks to dial them into their best-performing GT model while also gathering data and performance feedback.

What we know so far

Titleist are keeping very tight-lipped about details surrounding the GT drivers for now, but with the models 2, 3, and 4 names matching previous generations it’s highly likely you can expect a familiar feel to this new family.

Typically in the past, the TSR2 has had a rounder more forgiving profile and additional MOI performance for golfers who spray shots across the driver’s face. The new GT2 looks to have a similar shape and it doesn’t appear to have any new movable weight on the sole or a carbon fiber sole like the TaylorMade Qi10 Max or Callaway AI-Smoke Max, the two drivers this model will most be compared against.

In comparison, the TSR3 historically has had a more traditional pear-shaped profile that lowers spin and is often preferred by better players. I can see a movable weight in the sole just behind the face of the new GT3, which indicates the model is likely to spin less (as weight is positioned forward) like the TaylorMade Qi10 LS and Callaway AI Smoke Triple Diamond, it’s likely to also offer the opportunity to dial in ball flight shape a fraction too.

While for seriously high-speed players who want to eliminate spin the TSR4 has always been the brand’s lowest-spinning driver option. It appears the new GT4 which will replace the TSR has a very similar front fixed sole weight as its predecessor so it’s fair to expect a similar performance to the TSR4 with the addition of any new tech, Titleist has built into the GT family.  

That’s as much as we know for now, as soon as we hear more I’ll continue to update this page.

Which pros are using the Titleist GT drivers?

As the Memorial Tournament kicked off on Thursday 6th June 2024, the first week the GT drivers were introduced to Titleist tour staff, brand ambassador Byeong Hun An put a Titleist GT4 driver into play.

His low spin GT4 has a 9° loft and is set at the B2 SureFit hosel setting, which is slightly more upright and a fraction draw biased. An is also using his favorite Fujikura Motore X F1 6 X shaft.    

2023 US Open Champ Wyndham Clark switched to a GT driver in the first week it hit the tour too. Clark’s new GT2 has a 9° loft with the SureFit hosel set in the slightly flatter and fraction fade-biased B1 position.

What are the pros saying about the Titleist GT drivers?

8-time PGA Tour winner – Billy Horschel

“Having tight spin rates allows me to get similar carry distances even when I don’t hit it good. If I miss one a little thin, it’s not spinning at 2,800 or 2,900 RPM where it could fly 10 yards shorter. It’s still flying the same distance or maybe a few yards shorter than if I hit it solid. It gives me the confidence if there’s a bunker at 300 or 305 I want to carry, I don’t have to be perfect. I can miss it and know it’s still going to carry.”

World Number 38 – Will Zalatoris

“I’m picking up 1.5 mph ball speed, which equates to about another 6.5-7 yards of carry distance. I think the thing I’ve really noticed when comparing it to my old one, from the TSR to the GT, the mishits just get brought in much more; 4-5 yards tighter dispersion out here on Tour could be the difference between being in the fairway and having another birdie look”. 

2023 US Open Champ – Wyndham Clark

“It’s faster (than my previous TSR3), I felt like I got 2-3 mph more ball speed, which is amazing. And it has really consistent spin, which is obviously huge for what we do out here.”

When will the Titleist GT drivers go on sale?

The 1st of August has been earmarked as the day for all the inside information behind the Titleist GT driver family to go public. You can expect to see the GT2, GT3, and GT4 on general sale four to six weeks later. If you’re keen to be among the first golfers to hit them look out for early fitting sessions, some may be available before this as Titleist rolls their new driver franchise out globally.
