Titleist

Titleist 716 AP1

Our Review:

Long known as a better-players brand, Titleist has reached out to a wider audience in recent years, and this iron is an example. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a middle-handicapper seeking to get in single digits or the better player for whom the mid-70s is now a once-a-year occurrence. The use of tungsten in the lower toe increases forgiveness, and a deep-cut cavity helps launch the ball high, especially on the stronger-lofted irons. Also, the lightweight True Temper XP90 steel shafts are ideal for this player segment.

Player Comments
  • low
    The long irons are among the easiest to hit, and the ball leaps off the face. The only thing left to do is the club twirl.
  • mid
    The face cradles the ball at address. That’s not only comforting, but it gave a sense for how soft the feel was going to be.
  • mid
    A crisp pop off the face every time.
  • high
    The perfect combo of forgiveness without looking offensive.
