Titleist 716 AP1

Our Review:

A comforting club for those wanting to avoid something that looks like it belongs in a toolbox. The well-proportioned clubhead plows through the turf thanks to a pre-worn leading edge. There's no trouble getting the ball in the air (even with strong lofts) because of the high-density tungsten that moves the center of gravity low. The True Temper XP 90 shaft is light enough to help generate additional swing speed that creates chest-puffing yardage.

Player Comments
  • low
    The apex of the flight seemed to occur more toward the end before dropping down gently on the green. Loved that.
  • mid
    It wasn't the best in any one area, but the sum of being good in all aspects made this a standout.
  • high
    The traditional look is highly appealing.
