Hi Guys,
Could anyone give any insight to the Titleist TS3 driver. I am wondering what bias the driver has, draw or fade. I know there is a weight in the back which can be adjusted to neutral, draw or fade.
Many thanks for replies in advance

    Ive found it to be pretty neutral, definitely not draw biased though. Ive tried it with the weight in the toe, didn't make a noticeable difference so I'm keeping it neutral.

    Feels neutral as it gets to me, best driver I hit thus far by far.

    It's not draw biased but I wouldn't consider it fade biased either. I have a tendency to overcook my draw even with the fade biased drivers and I play my TS3 in C1 which is the max Fade setting and am still able to hit a draw when I need to. Just allows me to swing out without worrying about it dive bombing left into the woods. One of the best drivers I've ever played. There are longer out there but the TS3 just checked all the boxes for me as far as distance, spin, launch, feel, and dispersion. Just a fantastic all-rounder.

    As neutral as any driver I've played. Really impressed with this driver, has been in the bag all season. I find the driver very shaft sensitive, so make sure you get the right shaft.

    Neutral all day long just the way I like it, I like knowing that if I hit it one way or another it's down to me and not the club.

    Exactly. Looked at the Titleist drivers the other day and the suit my eye, especially the T3. Are they pretty true to loft?

    Neutral. Get fitted to dial it in, and it's a monster. Best looking new driver at address IMHO.

    According to the center of gravity measurements posted on my golfspy, the TS3 had a more heel side COG with all of the weight stick settings (draw, neutral and fade) which would indicate it would be more draw biased than say drivers with a more toe side COG.

    I got both the TS2 and TS3, the fitter set the TS3 up so that I hit a fade and the TS2 is set up for a draw.

    There is a post somewhere on this site regarding the use of the “weight stick”, and it’s purpose, which would be enlightening to you. Summarizing, its purpose is not for adjusting ball flight..

    I never said anything about the weight stick adjusting ball flight. All I said was that according to the COG chart the COG was located lower and towards the heel no matter what setting the weight stick was set to. If it was in the fade position it was closer to the center of the face but still slightly heel biased.

    I have one on the way and I'm looking forward to trying it once my back heals up. Total impulse buy as I rarely switch equipment. Also my first Titleist driver.

    Sraight, but I was fit into a weird combo that was great in the fitting bay (outdoors/trackman), but it did not work with my on course swing. i was fitted for an evenflow blue 65 and i was all over the course with it, including low on the face, high on the face. In a last chance effort i put a Speeder 757 Evo with a +4 gram weight stick and its been great so far. Oddly reminds me of an updated J33R 460 I used to love

    This is the best driver I have ever played. It is completely neutral, and it is a BEAST!

    Finally got out to hit mine today and was rather pleased. It hasn't knocked anything out of the bag but its still there for side by sides during my next round. If I keep it ill be cutting down and perhaps changing the shaft but it did give me my longest drive of the year on a certain hole today which impressed me. Not just ready to make a decison yet as I have something else on the way to try before making a decison.

    I have had my TS3 since end of last year. It is neutral setup. I was fitted with it outdoors so was able to really see what it was doing VS a screen... which I think is key personally. The only other driver I have hit in the last 6 months that I think is as good or could kick it out was the Cobra F9. TS line and the F9 are probably the best out currently.

    I have been playing the 910 D3 for years and got the TS3 in January. Have tried it with 8.5 and 9.5 lofts and 4 different shaft combinations as well as different shaft lengths. The 910 beats it every time. I personally dont find it that good. Has anyone won with it on tour?

    Kevin Tway at Kapalua I believe... tour wins don't mean it's not a good driver... just because it didn't work for you doesn't mean it's not a great stick

    I'm sure it works for some people. I am not one of them. Just interesting how Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Ian Poulter and Adam Scotts form is not exactly stellar this year playing the TS3.

    Interesting but has nothing to do with it. They have access to whatever they like and if it was the problem they would change it.

    I'm happy with mine. It beat out every other driver I tried (for my swing) and I went through every 2018 and 2019 model in the fitting. The only one that came close was the Epic Flash, but it had a really stupid name and would draw a bit too much.

    Besides, I like looking down at the traditional shape with no carbon weave on the crown, so it's a bonus.
