Titleist reveal upgraded T-Series irons and there’s something for every golfer. We take a look at what’s new for 2021.
Titeist don’t make bad irons, so it’s no surprise that the four new models in the T-Series – T100, T100s, T200 and T300 – all look fantastic. The design has been sharpened and modernised with all four models built around three key Ds – Distance, Dispersion and Descent Angle.

Let’s take a closer look at the four models, who they’re for and how they differ (click the iron’s name for full reviews).

A modern tour iron, the T100 is played by more tour pros than any other iron in the world and the refinements in the new model are the result of thousands of hours in the hands of Titleist’s tour staff.
Designed to provide precise control and unrivalled feel, the T100 is a fully forged dual cavity iron that looks like a blade at address thanks to its thin top line and minimal offset.
Titleist say the new variable bounce design is their “best-feeling ever” with less bounce on the heel and more on the toe for improved turf interaction and feel, something three-time Major champion Jordan Spieth was particularly impressed by.
Use of more dense D18 tungsten weights and the same 2000º brazing process used in aerospace construction has helped to eliminate weld points and create an even more precise CG placement for improved MOI.
The new face features a continuous cradle construction that creates a seamless striking surface and more uniform leading edge. The 4i-7i faces were redesigned to provide slightly more spin for improved shot-shaping and stopping power.
We love the new brushed chrome finish, which ensures glare will never be a problem.

£164 per club (steel), £178 (graphite) | Shafts: Project X LZ (steel), MCA Tensei White AM2 (graphite) | Grips: Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360
Two degrees stronger lofted than the T100, the T100S is Titleist’s “faster tour iron”. Almost identical in styling (you’d struggle to tell them apart at address), the forged S is designed to look and feel like a tour iron while giving you extra yards.
Created to the same dimensions as the T100 and using the same 2000º brazing process for improved MOI, new face, D18 tungsten weights and sole design, the T100S only differs in loft and with the addition of a new muscle channel, which helps increase ball speed.
Weight savings from the Muscle Channel are shifted to produce even lower CG and better launch.

The players’ distance iron of the revamped T-Series, Titleist say the T200 is their most advanced ever and represents the “biggest shift” within the series, combining sleek looks with impressive distance.
The multi-material hollow body features an enhanced polymer core that improves speed on off-centre hits and efficiency at impact, while an engineered muscle plate helps bring down the weight and improve the feel and sound at impact.
By saving that weight Titleist have been able to use extra tungsten – more than in any of the brand’s other irons. The more dense D18 tungsten, combined with that 2000º brazing process seen in the T100 and T100S, helps create more precise CG placement and improved MOI across the clubface.
It has a shorter blade length than its predecessor with less offset, a narrower topline and thinner sole for more of a tour feel. The forged L-Face helps create a fast but solid feel.
Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas Will Zalatoris and Cameron Smith will all play T200 long irons for their increased speed and added forgiveness over the T100.

The T300 is Titleist’s “ultimate” game-improvement iron, designed to be high, long and forgiving.
The mid-sized model, with its premium chrome finish, has a cavity back and uses 40 per cent more tungsten than its predecessor.
The more dense D18 tungsten, combined with that 2000º brazing process seen in the other T-Series irons, helps golfers get the best launch and improve MOI for more forgiveness.
Variable face thickness ensures more consistent distance no matter where it’s struck, with the face getting thinner towards the heel of the club in the long and mid irons for more consistent ball speeds.
Behind the T300 badge is an enhanced polymer core that improves feel and efficiency at impact for more ball speed and better feedback.
The new T-Series irons are available from August 26 with pre-order available immediately.
