New Titleist 712 AP1 irons

New Titleist 712 AP1 irons have been launched. Titleist has combined a stainless steel body with a high density tungsten sole weight to improve the forgiveness of the new Titleist 712 AP1 irons.

The length of the shorter irons in the new 712 AP1 irons have been progressively reduced to ensure the classic look of the iron is retained. Titleist is also promising higher ball speeds on miss-hits through the improved technology within the steel head.

The stock shaft of the new Titleist 712 AP1 irons is the True temper Dynamic Gold XP. The stock graphite shaft is the Tour AD by Graphite Design. The stock grip is the Titleist Tour Velvet by Golf Pride.

The new Titleist 712 AP1 irons will be available from November 18th, 2011 with a recommended retail price of £93 for steel shafts and £107 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.
