Who They’re For: Golfers who want more stability and distance than traditional long irons (TSR2), or distance with shot-shaping (TSR3).
The Skinny: Titleist’s newest hybrids were designed to give golfers a choice between a fairway wood-style hybrid with extra stability or an iron-style hybrid that can be given a draw or fade bias.
The Deep Dive: Having released the TSR2 and TSR3 drivers and fairway woods in 2022, Titleist is now bringing out the matching TSR2 and TSR3 hybrids.
Both offerings are stainless steel designs with an aerodynamic shape and 16-position adjustable hosel that allows players and fitters to increase or decrease the loft and lie angle. It should allow golfers and fitters to fill distance gaps more easily.

In the address position, each club has a glossy black crown, but the TSR2 will appear slightly larger from front to back and more rounded.

As with the corresponding drivers and fairway woods, the TSR2 hybrids have a center of gravity that is deeper and farther back, which should make them more stable on off-center impacts and help create more spin and a higher launch.
The TSR3 hybrids appear smaller when golfers set them down behind the ball, and they have a shorter blade length. The TSR3 hybrids were designed to appeal to golfers who prefer iron-style hybrids, and they have more shot-shaping potential thanks to a five-position moveable weight found behind the leading edge in the sole. Shifting the weight to the heel side encourages a draw, and positioning it toward the toe promotes a fade.

The TSR3 produces less spin and a lower ball flight than the TSR2, regardless of the position of the SureFit Adjustable CG Track system.
For both the TSR2 and TSR3, engineers removed material in the back heel and toe areas to help the clubs work over and through the grass more easily so golfers can maintain speed through the strike.
