Titleist T100 Irons Review
Re-Engineered But Still The Gold Standard
This is my official review of the Titleist T100 Irons.
I’ve been using this new set of irons for over 5 rounds now and my scores were great.
These are my overall thoughts on the experience and performance of the T100 Irons.
The Titleist T100 irons arrived a week later and man do they look clean in the bag. They reworked the look and cavity design of the T100 irons for a clean, slightly techy, yet compact design. I really like how they pack the weighting and multi material design into players iron. While not a compact as the CB or MB irons, these are about as small as you are going to get but still have ample forgiveness. The T100 badging is small and the minimal coloring makes these about as nice of a looking iron as you can get, considering the CG manipulation with Tungsten placement.
The biggest advancement in the Titleist T100 irons has to be the sole design. Titleist listened to player feeback and softened up the sole with more relief. The softer leading edge, the smoother trailing edge and the rounder sole makes for better turf interaction. That was the first thing i noticed on the course with the new T100 irons is how much nicer they cut into the turf and exited. The AP2 line tended to have a flatter sole, these have a much rounder sole with more camber and role. This helps off tight fairways and in long rough. While I often talk about the hard AZ turf, post overseed season can be really soft. The courses water like mad trying to get the rye grass to grow and fairways are pretty soft. I liked how these irons were versatile for both hard and soft turf.
The Titleist T100 irons are forged in a multi step process to incorporate tungsten but still be incredibly soft. You can’t tell in the blind feel test between these and a blade. I continue to be impressed by the solid feel of these irons, even with the tech and cavity design. They just feel solid yet soft on every shot. Even if you miss the center a little, they offer excellent feedback without getting harsh.
The real story on the Titleist T100 irons is performance. As I mentioned by the fitting, these irons are precise. I played them for 5 rounds and my scores were GOOD. They hit the ball what I call my standard distances, but the circle of dispersion was really small. I could attack pins and watch the ball go straight at it and stay close. I don’t want distance in my irons, I want accuracy and that is what the T100 irons offer. I played 4iron – GW in these clubs. The long irons are very easy to hit, I was impressed by their quick rise, but strong flight. The mid irons were on the flatter side of flight, but held the greens nicely and the short irons were scoring machines. I really liked having the GW too. Since that tends to be a full swing club for me, lining up with the irons is often better than the wedges.

Titleist re-engineered and re-named their irons, but that didn’t change the standard they set with this model. They offer the best of all worlds, great feel, good looks, solid forgiveness, and performance. I think you should test these out and see if they are a fit for you, they certainly are for me. Pay close attention to your fitter; distance is great and many golfers need it, but irons should be about precision and scoring, find the clubs that do that the best. The Titleist T100 irons are the gold standard in performance for me.
