A Word More About Loft Jacking
We’ve covered this many times before but, what the hell, I’ll bang my head into the wall again. Yes, everybody is jacking their lofts, but it’s time to start coming to terms with the idea that static loft (the number listed in the catalog) doesn’t tell you much of anything about performance. Even on a relative basis, it won’t tell you launch angle, spin rate, peak height, descent angle or whether you’ll be able to stop a ball on the green. Everything is dependent upon additional factors such as geometry and the CG position.
That’s not to say all loft-jacked irons perform as advertised but it also doesn’t mean that none of them does.
When Titleist offers an 8.5deg driver head, nobody shakes their fists and yells at a cloud about how they have a 10.5deg driver in their bag and that they are sick of these sons-of-bitches loft-jacking the big dog. “Back in my day, son…”
In the old days, golf balls and drivers were filled with wood. Things change.
Nobody complains about lower-lofted drivers because everyone understands that loft is an essential fitting variable. Guys, loft is an essential fitting variable for the rest of the bag, too. Loft is not the SAT. There are many right answers.
Tested: 3 – PW
Our take: Although the T100S may have been introduced after the T100, it is still the T100S’ “big brother”. The goal, according to Titleist, was to create a bigger, badder, faster version of the T100. GOLF’s testers were able to find big brother success. “Simply phenomenal,” One Tester said. “It powers through the wind without much effort and feels like it’s one of the longest irons on the block, just in a smaller package.” For those looking to add a jolt to their approach game — both in terms of speed and precision — there are few better options available.
More Details on Justin Thomas’s New Scotty Cameron Pan
Justin Thomas has won 14 times on the PGA Tour, and most of his victories have come using the Scotty Cameron X5 Tour putter pictured above. Pay attention to the milled facial features, such as the short neck and back cavity.
Thomas brought a new bag to the 2022 AT&T Byron Nelson, despite his impressive performance with the trusty X5. Pictured below, it’s an ultra-custom Scotty Cameron T5 prototype.
The head shape of his new gamer is almost identical, but it features smoother milling marks, a plumber’s neck and a plate in the back cavity.
The “knuckle” neck features a silvered-out shaft piece that helps extend the neck to give Thomas the look and feel that he wants. Drew Page, Scotty Cameron’s tour representative, said that Thomas has a slightly different toe-hang than his old gamer to stabilize his face and allow him to strike more consistently.
Thomas enjoys the sound of the lightweight aluminum cavity back plating. Back at the 2021 British Open, Thomas put a similar prototype putter into play that didn’t have the back plating, and he was looking for a slightly different sound.
Page said that Page started using a knuckle neck in the last year, just before the British Open. “He put the first version of it in play at the British Open. Then afterwards he came back with feedback for us, what he liked, what he didn’t like, and what he wanted to see out of it. That was what we were able create…
“He was like, ‘Alright lets get into current product,’ so that’s why we went that direction. It’s something he can see, so he knows that if it becomes a full-time thing, then there will be plenty of product, head shapes and new heads.
We are still learning about what it does for him and how it affects his life. This helps stabilize the stroke. It’s just a little bit better than his open-to-closure rate, and it is more consistent in terms of strike and getting on line. He can feel it throughout the stroke a little bit. For a player like this, it is all about honing and feeling what the stroke feels. That produces confidence in being able to make putts, which is huge.”

Prices from $1,200… You have better value options
We are going to assume you would rather spend less money than the $1,200 price tag. We recommend other options at a fraction the cost. The T100S or T100S are great options if money is not an issue.
However, if money is an issue, which is true for most people out there, consider a used set of Titleist CB irons. Toplines very thin. Blades have a little more forgiveness, but it is not much. Great forged feel, and… more importantly… less than half the price of the Titleist T100 and T100S irons.
A good set of Titleist 714 and 716 CB irons can be purchased for as low as $400. This is about 1/3 the cost of T-series irons. Considering that the performance between the two is negligible, it makes sense to save the $800 when possible.
Of course when you’re improving the most played iron in the game it’s vital to get the views of some of the best iron players in the world and Titleist have done just that.
Jordan Spieth, Will Zalatoris, Sungjae Im, Cameron Smith, Garrick Higgo and Jessica Korda, have all been involved in the process which has seen the T100 spend more than 1,000 hours in Titleist’s players’ hands.
The new variable bounce design is Titleist’s “best-feeling ever” with less bounce on the heel and more on the toe for improved turf interaction and feel, something three-time Major champion Jordan Spieth was particularly impressed by.
The new face features a continuous cradle construction that creates a seamless striking surface and more uniform leading edge. Redesigned 4i-7i face designs provide slightly more spin to improve shot shaping and stopping power.
We love the new brushed chrome finish, which ensures glare will never be a problem.
T100S, T200, and T300 join the T100S in the T-Series.

This is What I Saw In The Fitting Bay
High-level players with good ball speed gravitate to the T100. I don’t like to label handicaps to clubs because I know five handicaps who hit it poorly (play smart and chip and putt like crazy), and 12 handicaps who hit it like scratch players (but take too many risks and putt like Chihuahuas….yippy).
You don’t want to be unable to find the middle of the clubface three to four times in a ten-shot pattern. I will steer you to something with greater forgiveness and distance. For folks who can find the center of the scoring lines with regularity, and don’t want to carry five wedges, this club is the total package.
(P.S. Titleist announced the release of a T100s set (strong), which will be available on shelves from March.
Tested: 3 to GW
Our take: The T200 has taken major strides forward in its newest advancement. What is the difference? After Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth and Garrick Higgo all added the T200 2-iron last year to their bags, Titleist started marketing it also as a utility club. The T200 might be a player distance model, but with a smaller head shape, diminished offset and super-low CG, GOLF’s Testers found it to be something else entirely. One Tester raved, “It is an iron cheat code.” It’s by far the most easy iron to swing. It’s confidence-inspiring.” “It doesn’t look like a player distance iron,” Said another. “It looks and feels like a players iron.”
Jason Day’S Custom Odyssey Protos, and Scratched-Up Red Spider
This week, we caught up with 2015 PGA Champion Jason Day to check out what clubs he’s using as an equipment free agent in 2022. Click here to see his full WITB.
Last week at the 2022 Wells Fargo Championship, Day switched back into his famous TaylorMade Spider Tour Limited Red putter that he popularized in 2016. He’s now lost the putter and has scratched off the sole plate. The putter is still functional, but it has more personality now.
That wasn’t the only putter he had in the bag on Tuesday, though. Day said that he will continue to use the red Spider but was testing two other Odyssey Toulon mallet putters, “J Daytona”.
Titleist T100 Irons Review: Blades With Benefits
Titleist’s AP line is gone. New and improved for 2020 is the T-series family of irons. This article will focus on the T100 model, the smallest, and most blade-like of the bunch.
It can be confusing to renumber the T100 as it is a replacement model of the AP2 forged cavity iron. All of this will be clarified for you. The positive here is that now the models are sequential:
- T100 (most blade-like, replaces AP2)
- T200 is a more forgiving forging process with higher lofts. It can still be traditional looking and retains the AP3 look.
- T300 replaces AP1 (larger head cast, higher launch, greater forgiveness)
After testing the Titleist T100
What Are The Main Differences Between The T-Series Irons?
Ultimately, with these new T series irons, what you have is a spectrum. The T100 is the most powerful, giving you great feel and control. It also has amazing shot shaping abilities and beautiful looks. It’s great if your strength and consistency in ball striking is not a problem.
You’ll notice that the T100 offers more control and speed, but less distance and speed. This is dependent on what balance you want. At the other end of the spectrum you’ve got the T300 with a nice big clubhead that produces impressive power. This model might be a good option if you are getting some criticism from your friends. As discussed earlier, this model in particular may be of benefit if you struggle with an open clubface. The T400 is another option. Although it hasn’t yet been tested, the specs and clubhead design suggest that this model will perform as well as the T300.
Titleist T100 Vs Titleist 718 Ap2 Irons Review & Specs 2022
Titleist is known for creating irons that both everyday players and pros will love. They make every type of iron.
Titleist’s mission is to invent and shake things up. Titleist isn’t content with past success.
So that got us to wondering: how would a set of their tour-grade irons stack up against a set of their player’s category irons?
This curiosity led to testing and testing led to a review. Continue reading to see how the two Titleist iron sets in different categories compared.
- Two Guys Talking Golf
This week, the PGA Tour will be in McKinney Texas for the 2022 AT&T Byron Nelson @ TPC Craig Ranch. Players will get their last chance to prepare for this year’s second major or qualify for it if they don’t.
It’s the proverbial calm before the PGA Championship storm next week at Southern Hills in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Of course, there’s nothing calm about the Texas wind this week, but you get the point.
GolfWRX, as always, was on-site ahead of the Byron Nelson. They took a look at players’ bags to see which gear they were using and why.
We saw two particularly interesting custom clubs this week (Justin Thomas’ new putter, and Maverick McNealy’s super custom irons), and caught up with two players’ bags we haven’t photographed in a while (Jason Day and Justin Leonard).
Let’s dive right into this week’s Tour Report from Texas.
Is it all about?
Titleist claims that their new T-Series irons were inspired by the desire to produce the finest irons possible. This is due to the use of new materials and processes, as well as new refinements, which provide more precision than the old range.
T100 is the modern Tour iron. It is designed for better players from high to low handicappers and possibly even mid-handicappers.
Played by more tour pro’s than any other iron in the world, the T100 irons found their way into the bag of Jordan Spieth at The Open Championship as he finished runner up, presenting a good start to life for Titleist’s most popular model.
The address has a blade-like appearance with minimal offset and a slim topline. This is combined with traditional loft configurations to enhance the classic setup.
Variable bounce sole is one of the major new features in the T100 range. The result is a collaboration between the Vokey Tour and R&D teams. This has led to increased bounce at the toe, as well as reduced bounce at the heel.
It is especially useful for the shorter “scoring” irons and was designed to enhance turf interaction. According to Titleist, Tour players love how fast the irons glide through turf and the flexibility of irons that can be used from different lyings.
The irons have a forged, dual cavity construction with D18 tungsten weighting added to the heel and toe of the 3-7 irons in order to enable precise CG placement and improve stability and MOI.
There are no face inserts in the T100 irons, with the continuous face construction providing a seamless striking area with a more uniform leading edge to increase control.
T100s are said to offer the same Tour shape as Tour clubs, but faster. They’re aimed at players who desire the feel and performance of Tour-style irons while also increasing their distance.
The lofts are raised by two degrees on each iron, and a Muscle Channel is added. This allows each iron to have a lower centre of gravity than the T100 irons. It promotes higher ball speed and launch, without any effect on the feel.
The T100 and T100 have a new, brushed chrome finish. This is the result of direct feedback from Tour players. It gives the bag a clean appearance while reducing the glare at the address.
What The Pros Say About The Titleist T100 Irons
Three-time Major champion Jordan Spieth put T100 4-9 irons in play at the Open Championship, where he finished runner-up after four consecutive rounds in the 60s at Royal St George’s.
“The sole just glides through the ground so nicely,” Spieth said. “With the added bounce off the toe and the reduced bounce in the heel similar to the wedges that we have on those grinds, it just allows for some consistency when you get a little bit off.
The consistency of the shot is what I seek. It’s because I stand over the ball, I need it to move a number, so I know that it is consistent. This makes it easier to commit to the shot and takes the guesswork out.
Pxg 0311 Gen3
PXG clubs may not be the most affordable, so it does not target the masses.
The interior design uses soft polymer to reduce vibrations. This also adds structural integrity to the face and stores energy to be transferred to the golf ball and achieve more distance.
Using HT1770 maraging-steel in the face allows PXG to produce a 1.5-millimeter face that features a 1.0-millimeter internal channel around the perimeter for the increased rebound.
PXG continues to use innovative materials and processes with soft 8620 steel. The body is forge through five different processes. It is further highlighted by the use of lightweight titanium and heavier tungsten weights remain to produce an optimal center of gravity and moment of inertia.
Similar to the T100 the top line of PXG’s players iron is thin while the sole is designed with sufficient bounce to produce perfect divots.
Other than the Titleist T-Series Irons
T100.S has a unique feature: the T100.S’s loft is higher and more weight is placed in the head. This makes it a much lighter clubhead. The Mizuno Pro 223 is probably one of the best-suited new-release to cross-compare with. The Taylormade P770 is also worth considering.
You are now looking more at the distance iron categories of players with T200. This matches in well with the Mizuno Pro 225, and the upcoming Spring release of the Ping i525. You might also consider the Taylormade P790 and Callaway Apex iron.
- Traditional lofts on the T100 while the T100s are stranger by 2-degrees
- Looks are an improvement on the previous T100
- Incredible feeling irons with good looks.
- Excellent sole design
- Decent forgiveness
- Higher landing and launch angles
Titleist 718 Ap2 Key Features
Titleist 718 AP2 has a slim top line with minimal offset.
They look really nice at point of address and like the T100’s have tungsten weights in the toe and head.
They also sport a redesigned leading edge to cut through turf like butter.
A complete set of the Titleist 718 AP2 irons can run you anywhere from $1100 to $1300.
The T100 is a more likely option. A complete set will cost around $1250.
What’S Better About The Titleist T100 Irons?
Launch. The Titleist T100 irons provide high launch angles that will help you get over hazards and stop the ball dead on long approaches.
The co-forging process also gives these irons a more solid feel.
Faster, Smoother Turf Interaction
Our Tour Pros were amazed at how quickly and easily the T100 moved through turf during testing. The T100 sole shows how Titleist extracts more performance from every detail.
Were They Designed for?
The T100 irons will be most beneficial to tour professionals or the more skilled golfer who prefers a thin top line and little offset and a similar blade appearance. Mid-to-high handicap golfers will feel intimidated by the blade-like appearance.
Titleist 620 Cb Irons
The details: The 620 CBs are loaded with performance attributes — like limited offset and a thinner topline — but they also feature a surprising amount of forgiveness, thanks largely to high-density tungsten weighting, which provides added balance. The end result is a club that imparts Tour-level execution and a little friendliness, too. You can have both the best and worst of them all.
Titleist T-Series Irons T200 Review
The T200 will suit a mid-handicap golfer who strikes the ball reasonably consistently but would like a bit more forgiveness and power from a traditional looking clubhead.
Titleist T100 Irons: Who should buy them?
We expect this to remain the same with the T100 irons, but it’s likely Titleist will adopt new members to its tribe with these irons.
Titleist T100 Review
Titleist T100 And T100S Irons Verdict
Jordan Spieth uses the Titleist T100 irons. He is, in my view, the third-best iron player after Collin Morikawa or Tiger Woods. Spieth was so confident in his new irons, he placed them in the bag to finish runner up.
This is a great statement from someone like Spieth. He’s suggesting you can make the same shots with a blade as with a blade but have the extra help to correct any mishits.
Considering that I wasn’t completely convinced by the first generation of the T100s irons as I couldn’t get the desired launch to optimise my carry distance, I was really impressed by the upgrades to the model and it ended up being my favourite iron of the whole range this time around.
While I hadn’t noticed much of a difference in the T100s from 2020, the T100s felt stronger. Perhaps all of the new weighting for tungsten in the correct area seemed to have helped my poor shots a little bit.
The Open was proof of my passion for irons. I looked in Adam Scott’s bag and saw that he was using the T100 with both a 2nd and 3rd iron.
Were They Designed for?
T100 is the most requested iron model on PGA Tour.

Titleist T100 Irons Review
Independent Golf Reviews founder and chief author. This is my official review for the Titleist T100 Irons.
I have used this set for five rounds and the scores are great.
These are my thoughts about the T100 Irons’ performance and experience.
In 2011, I reviewed the Titleist “new” Titleist 718 irons. The irons represented a change in the Titleist traditional design. They became for me, the benchmark by which irons should be measured. Titleist started to redesign and rename its club lines last year. It started with the woods and now the irons. They are now T irons. The T irons replace the AP irons. This is a good idea. Since the AP2 were players irons, the AP1 was more game improvement while the AP3 had yet more. It all seemed a bit jumbled. T100 now represents the most advanced design irons. Despite this name change, T100 is still my gold standard for comparing new irons.
Titleist always asks that I get fit before they just place clubs in my hand to test. This is a fantastic way to ensure that they have the best product available for me. This time, I was unable to coordinate with a Titleist fitter so I just went to the PGA Superstore. Their fitting carts and launch monitors were all ready. With the Titleist T100 I first hit a few shafts, and then the T200 followed with some more. The T100 and DG AMT White S300 were a perfect match. However the “fitter” kept trying to get me into the T200 because they were longer. I tried to tell him I wasn’t after distance. Dispersion for me is the goal. T100 iron shots were in a tight circle. They are shorter but not as tight. It’s not surprising, considering the T200 irons have stronger lofts that are designed to travel further. One degree lower was more comfortable for my swing than one degree higher. The numbers displayed on the launch monitor were therefore perfect.
A week later, the Titleist T100 irons were delivered and they are so clean inside their bags. They reworked the look and cavity design of the T100 irons for a clean, slightly techy, yet compact design. The multi-material weighting is great and they fit the iron in a compact way. These irons are not as compact as the CB and MB irons but they are still very easy to use. T100 has a very small badge with minimal coloring. It is also quite attractive considering Tungsten’s CG manipulation.
It has to be the main design. The sole was softened by Titleist after they listened to the player feedback. This softens the turf interaction by softer edges, smoother trails and a rounder sole. This is the thing that first struck me on the T100-equipped course was the way the irons cut into and out of the turf. These are much more round than those of the AP2 line, with a wider sole and greater camber. This is great for tight fairways as well as in the long rough. While I often talk about the hard AZ turf, post overseed season can be really soft. Fairways and rye grass are very soft. The fairways can be too watery to allow the course to dry. I liked how these irons were versatile for both hard and soft turf.
