Titleist reveal their new line of 718 irons – six new models

The new line of Titleist 718 irons were unveiled today. The six iron line up consists of the powerful distance and ultra-forgiveness of AP1, the tour-proven consistency of AP2, and the introduction of AP3, the longest, fastest Titleist players iron ever – provides dedicated golfers with the breakthrough technology and proven performance that have made Titleist the #1 iron on the PGA Tour since 2005. Available in golf shops worldwide from 29th September, Titleist’s 718 iron lineup offers six models in total – AP1, AP3, AP2, T-MB, CB and MB – precisely engineered to meet the performance requirements of players at every level of the game.

The 718 line features the all-new AP3 – which Titleist claim is their longest and fastest club yet, in addition to upgrades on both the powerful distance and ultra-forgiving AP1 and tour-proven consistent AP2.
 
Josh Talge, Vice President of Marketing, Titleist Golf Clubs, said: “Golfers trust Titleist to design and manufacture the premier irons in the game and not make any sacrifices. Our R&D team is relentless when it comes to improving iron performance and engineering new technologies into head profiles that look, sound and feel great.”
 
“The invention of AP3, which combines the distance and forgiveness of our best-selling, game-improvement AP1 iron with the look and feel of our tour-favourite AP2, is a significant advancement that will help a wide range of golfers, and further illustrates why more of the world’s best players have Titleist irons in their bags.”
 
Marni Ines, Director, Titleist R&D Irons Development, added: “718 is about maximising MOI and ball speed, while maintaining the proper launch, trajectory and shot-stopping control that players need to hit greens more consistently. Irons are scoring clubs.”
 
“It’s about hitting your number and stopping the ball close to the pin. Even with distance-focused irons like 718 AP1 and AP3, which are just as long or even longer than the competition, the ultimate goal was playable and repeatable distance. When it comes to hitting a good iron shot, distance without control is meaningless.”

“Titleist has an iron for every dedicated golfer, and that starts with 718 AP1,” Talge said. “There’s no better option in the game improvement iron category.”
