Titleist AP1 and AP2 irons

New Titleist 712 AP1 irons and Titleist 712 AP2 irons have been launched offering a blend of feel and forgiveness. Titleist has announced the next generation of the successful AP1 and AP2 irons with new, sleeker models that promise added forgiveness.

The new Titleist AP1 and Titleist AP2 irons have retained the previous dual cavity design and multi-material construction - a soft elastomer and aluminium plate in the back of the head has been designed to refine both sound and feel.

"The new 712 line of AP irons represents another step forward in iron design," said Steve Pelisek, General Manager, Titleist Golf Clubs. "With the development of the first AP irons in 2007, we knew we had created something special - irons that incorporated a true blend of classic golf club aesthetics with modern playability, forgiveness and consistency. With the new 712 line we've taken this breakthrough technology to a new, game-changing level by increasing the stability and forgiveness without losing any workability or shot control."

The new Titleist AP1 irons and Titleist AP2 irons will hit the shelves on November 18th . The new Titleist AP1 irons will come with a recommended retail price of £93 per club for steel shafts and £107 for graphite. The new Titleist AP2 irons will come with a recommended retail price of £114 per club for steel shafts and £130 per club for graphite.

Neil Tappin
Digital Editor

In his current role, Neil is responsible for testing drivers and golf balls. Having been a part of the Golf Monthly team for over 15 years and playing off a handicap of 3, he has the experience to compare performance between models, brands and generations. For 2022 he thinks the main trend in drivers is: "In a word, consistency. Whilst all the brands are talking about ball speed (and the new drivers are certainly long), my biggest finding has been how much more consistent the ball flights are. Mishits don't seem to be causing the same level of drop-off or increase in the spin numbers. This means that more shots seem to be flying the way you want them to!" As far as golf balls are concerned the biggest development is in the, "three piece, non-Tour, urethane-covered section. For regular golfers, these models offer superb performance at both ends of the bag without denting your wallet quite as much as the premium Tour-played options."

Originally working with the best coaches in the UK to produce instruction content, he is now the brand's Digital Editor and covers everything from Tour player interviews to gear reviews. In his time at Golf Monthly, he has covered equipment launches that date back well over a decade. He clearly remembers the launch of the Callaway and Nike square drivers as well as the white TaylorMade driver families, such as the RocketBallz! If you take a look at the Golf Monthly YouTube channel, you'll see his equipment videos dating back over a decade! He has also conducted 'What's In The Bag' interviews with many of the game's best players like Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm. Over the years, Neil has tested a vast array of products in each category and at drastically different price-points.
