New Titleist AP2 irons

New Titleist 712 AP2 irons have been launched. The multi-material design of the new AP2 irons has been created to offer players a blend of tradition feel and looks with modern playability and forgiveness.

Titleist has used a forged carbon steel body with a high density tungsten weight design to increase the Moment of Inertia by 7% in the new AP2 irons. The sole widths of the 8, 9 and PW have been reduced to help the way the club moves through the turf at impact.

The new Titleist AP2 irons have a square toe profile, something specifically requested by the brand's Tour players. The small, progressive offset has also been introduced to improve playability across the broad spectrum of golfers attracted to the traditional look and feel of the new AP2 irons.

The stock shaft for the new Titleist AP2 irons is Dynamic Gold and the stock grip is the Titleist Tour Velvet by Golf Pride. A broad spectrum of alternative grips and shafts are available through the Titleist custom fitting service.

The new Titleist 712 AP2 irons will be available on November 18th 2011 and will come with a recommended retail price of £114 for steel shafts and £130 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.
