Titleist are launching two more irons after unveiling the new T200 and T300 range as the latest in a raft of forthcoming products.
The leading manufacturer revealed that the Titleist T200 irons and Titleist T300 irons will be used for the first time during this week’s Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands.
The launch of the T200 and T300 will begin with a validation process in which PGA TOUR stars will test the clubs during practice rounds and on the range, and offer feedback to the research and development team behind the new irons.
Once that validation process is completed, the two ranges of irons will officially be launched for sale later in the year—but not before the seal of approval is given.
Titleist explain the process: “Validating product performance across the worldwide professional tours is a critical step in the development of all high performance Titleist golf equipment.
“Based on initial tour player testing and feedback, the new lineup is poised to continue Titleist’s run as the most played iron on the PGA TOUR for each of the last five years and 14 of the last 15 seasons.
“Stay tuned to Titleist.com and Titleist’s social channels for updates as this process continues over the coming weeks across the worldwide professional tours.”
There has been no stopping Titleist in the recent weeks and months, with new club after new club rolling off the production line to either land on the shelves or be put through the validation process.
The arrival of the T200 and T300 follows last week’s unveiling of the T100, 620 MB and 620 CB irons during the US Open week at Pebble Beach, all with Titleist actually giving away any details other than images shared online.
The already revealed T100, an attractive blade design with what looks likely to have the option of adding weights into the chamber, will form part of the T Series of irons along with the T200 and T300. The trio look set to replace the AP range in place in the AP1, AP2 and AP3, and become the premium irons.
From the images released, the T200 irons feature a screw weight in the cavity which carries the wording max impact, and golfers will be keen to discover just how the technology in the design actually works.
The Titleist T300 irons, meanwhile, also has a weight situated in the cavity which features the letters MI with no indication of what the technology might be.
The arrival of the latest two irons, and the trio first seen at the US Open, follows the unveiling of the TS2 and TS3 hybrids—part of the Titleist Speed range of woods—and the U-500 and U-510 utility irons at the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village last month.
In total, Titleist have 10 different clubs being put through the validation process. With scheduled release dates for later in 2019, golfers looking to get their hands on the next generation of Titleist woods or irons will not have to wait too long.
