Titleist U-Series Irons Launched

Fresh from launching the T100, T200 and T300 irons last month, Titleist have now added two hybrid irons to the mix with the U-Series being utility clubs that offer “more distance than a standard irons” but “less spin than a hybrid.”

Titleist believe they have come up with a perfect combination that will be “delivering that one shot you need precisely when you need it” courtesy of a higher launch and fast ball speeds. It is for that very reason that Titleist are billing the U-Series as offering “game-changing long iron performance.”

The decision to design the two new hybrid irons came as a result of requests from Titleist’s tour stars, who wanted a high-performing option for long distance shots to fill some voids at the top end of the bag.

The Research & Development team came up with two options—the U500 irons and U510 irons—which have been designed with high density tungsten weights to lower the CG and produce a high launch.

Both versions are already in the bags of tour stars including at the Open Championship at Royal Portrush.

Titleist U500 Irons

The Titleist U500 hybrid iron is being described as the “player’s utility” and has been designed for “superior shot-making.” The U500 comes with a low loft with 17 degree (2-iron), 20 degree (3-iron) or 23 degree (4-iron) options.

The high density tungsten weighting has been strategically thought out to create a greater balance across the club head, while the super thin forged SUP-10 L-Face insert ensures maximum ball speed on strikes.

The iron, meanwhile, has been designed with player’s shape and sight lines for improved alignment over shots.

Major winner Adam Scott, a Titleist ambassador, says of the U500 iron: “It’s hard to get your head around what the club can do, it’s unbelievable.”

Titleist U510 Irons

The Titleist U510 irons are being marketed as a “power utility” and that is no surprise when you compare the two options in the U-Series.

The U510 is bigger than the U500 in every sense thanks to what Titleist describe as a “muscular iron shape.” The club head is longer, thicker and deeper than the U500, and is a much more forgiving iron as a result.

Like the U500 irons, a low CG courtesy of the high density tungsten weighting allows for a high launch, while the super thin forged SUP-10 L-Face insert helps create even more ball speed in the U510 irons for maximum distance.

The U510 comes with four loft options, including a 1-iron not available in the U500 range. There are 16 degree (1-iron), 18 degree (2-iron), 20 degree (3-iron) or 22 degree (4-iron) versions available for the U510.

“I mean, this thing went high, and it is crazy fast,” said Justin Thomas, another Titleist ambassador and major winner.

The U-Series irons are set to be available for sale at the end of August.
