Titleist Reveals New Utility & Long Irons
Titleist has revealed new utility and long irons through four options in the U•505 Model and three irons from the new T200 Family, offering golfers that attractive combination of increased launch and spin.
Josh Talge, Vice President of Golf Club Marketing, said: “The new U•505 is the direct result of tour player feedback of the original U•500 and U•510 utility irons. The U•505 combines the best of both and the result is our highest performing and most playable utility iron yet. The new T200 long irons offer similar high launch and speed with the look and feel of an iron set at the top of the bag.”
Titleist's Director of Irons Development, Golf Club R&D, Marni Ines commented: “With the U•505 and the T200 long irons, we have players covered regarding what they are seeking in launch, speed, feel and looks at the top of the bag. The immediate positive feedback we have received by players who have put these in play has been encouraging. They love the balance of the height advantage and control they are getting from a utility and long iron - that’s what these clubs give you – in addition, players love the look when they put it down at address. Even though they may play blades or T100’s in their regular set, they want the confidence and forgiveness these clubs provide when they set them down.”
U•505 | THE PLAYERS UTILITY IRON
Improving upon the foundation of the previous generation U•510 and U•500, the new U•505 is a wide-soled, high-launching utility club. Designed for the player who is looking to increase launch and speed from their long irons with a faster face, the U•505 features evolved Max Impact 2.0 technology and new denser D18 tungsten weights, delivering improved sound and feel with outstanding versatility. The player’s shape provides confidence at address.
U•505 | PERFORMANCE AND TECHNOLOGY
Speed that Feels Amazing: With a thinner forged L-Face and the infusion of Max Impact Technology (Max Impact 2.0), the U•505 is Titleist’s highest COR utility iron ever. A new reconfigured hollow body, core support structure, and enhanced high resilience polymer core, ensures that dynamic speed generation now comes with superior feel and sound.
Better Tungsten for Better Launch: Utilising Denser D18 tungsten weights and a brazing process used in aerospace construction, Titleist engineers were able to concentrate weight more efficiently and be even more precise with CG placement. In the U•505 utility iron, that meant sliding it lower and towards the heel, where tour pros and better players felt it improved launch dynamics the most.
Looks Like An Iron: Based on U•510 player input, the U•505 was designed with a shorter blade and shallow face but kept the wide sole to maintain all of the performance advantages while moving towards a look that feels more in line with an irons set.
T200 LONG IRONS | THE TOUR’S DISTANCE IRON
The new T200 long irons are designed for the better player who is looking for long irons to increase launch and speed at the top of their bag. Tour players currently carrying T200 long irons include Jordan Spieth (2-iron), Justin Thomas (2-iron), Bernd Wiesberger (2-iron) and Charley Hoffman (2-iron), among several others. The 2, 3 and 4 T200 long irons, with lofts of 17*, 20* and 22*, respectively, are the choice of those players who want maximum speed with their longest irons, but prefer compact player’s irons for looks versus a utility iron.
T200 LONG IRONS | PERFORMANCE & TECHNOLOGY
Power Packed Design: Every component of the multi-material hollow body construction contributes to the long, consistent distance of the T200 long irons. The improved Max Impact Technology includes a core support design and an enhanced high resilience polymer core that improves both off-centre speed and mass efficiency at impact across a forged, high COR SUP-10 L-Face Insert.
Multi-Material Body: An engineered muscle plate contributes to precision sound tuning and saves weight which is optimised in a streamlined 17-4 chassis. A shorter blade length, less offset (same as T100), narrower topline and thinner sole, provides a tourinspired look and feel while delivering maximum speed and distance.
Better Tungsten for Better Progression: Utilising denser D18 tungsten weights in the T200 long irons provides greater mass efficiency and allowed Titleist engineers to position the CG more precisely for maximum benefit, that is, fast, forgiving, and high launching long irons.
