DESIGN

The Titleist 804s have a fairly chunky topline and are less attractive than other deep cavities on the market. However, they do look easy to hit and should instill confidence in those players looking for a forgiving set of irons.

TECH TALK

The Forged Stainless 804 OS irons should provide playability and forgiveness to attract golfers of all standards.

GM VERDICT

The bulky, awkward looking heads are uncharacteristic of Titleist but they do offer a powerful strike. Designed with the mid or high handicapper in mind, they will carefully disguise any potentially destructive mishits.For those serious about knocking shots off their handicap, these Titleist irons represent a sound investment.

Neil has worked for Golf Monthly for over 15-years. 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. Neil is currently a 3-handicap golfer who has played the game for as long as he can remember. In his role 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. 

In his current role, Neil is responsible for testing all new drivers and is part of a team testing golf balls. He is able 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 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!"
