Titleist Introduces New 718 Irons
New Models for Every Dedicated Golfer – Including All-New AP3 – Maximize Ball Speed and MOI for More Distance, More Often



The new line of Titleist 718 irons – featuring the powerful distance and ultra-forgiveness of AP1, the tour-proven consistency of AP2, and the introduction of AP3, the longest, fastest Titleist players iron ever – provides dedicated golfers with the breakthrough technology and proven performance that have made Titleist the #1 iron on the PGA Tour since 2005.

Available in golf shops worldwide beginning Sept. 29, Titleist’s 718 iron lineup offers six models – AP1, AP2, AP3, T-MB, CB and MB – precisely engineered to meet the performance requirements of players at every level of the game.

Following their debut on the PGA Tour in late June, Titleist 718 irons are now being played by hundreds of players across the worldwide professional tours. Justin Thomas won the PGA Championship playing a new set of 718 MB irons, while Jordan Spieth used a 718 T-MB 3-iron to hit his now legendary recovery shot on Royal Birkdale’s 13th hole en route to winning the Open Championship. Jimmy Walker (AP3, MB), Bill Haas (AP3, AP2), Rafa Cabrera Bello (MB), Charley Hoffmann (AP2), Russell Henley (T-MB), Ian Poulter (AP2), Steve Stricker (CB), Byeong Hun An (AP3, AP2, MB), Webb Simpson (MB) and Jason Kokrak (AP3, CB, MB) have also put new 718 irons immediately in play.


718 TECHNOLOGY AND PERFORMANCE

“718 is about maximizing MOI and ball speed, while maintaining the proper launch, trajectory and shot-stopping control that players need to hit greens more consistently. Irons are scoring clubs. It’s about hitting your number and stopping the ball close to the pin. Even with distancefocused irons like 718 AP1 and AP3, which are just as long or even longer than the competition, the ultimate goal was playable and repeatable distance. When it comes to hitting a good iron shot, distance without control is meaningless.” – Marni Ines, Director, Titleist R&D Irons Development

718 AP1 IRONS: New 718 AP1 irons are built for maximum distance and maximum forgiveness.
Longer and more forgiving than the prior generation, 718 AP1 irons combine classic Titleist look and feel with the game’s most advanced game improvement technology to produce an iron that is easy to hit, get in the air and stop on the green quickly.



    • New progressive construction from hollow-body long irons to undercut cavity mid and short irons provides the best combination of distance and trajectory for each individually designed iron.

    • Thin, fast, unsupported face inserts generate explosive ball speed for more distance.
    Hollow-body long irons, inspired by R&D’s development of the Titleist Concept C16 iron models, maximize carry distance on longer shots into the green.



    • High-density tungsten weighting produces a lower CG for higher launch with shot-stopping control. The high-MOI design – with an average of 58.5 grams of tungsten per head, placed low and in the toe of the long and mid irons – produces higher ball speeds across the face for more consistent distance on off-center hits.

    • Premium game improvement profile delivers the look, sound and feel that players expect from a Titleist iron. Improved leading edge pre-wear creates more efficient turf interaction for more consistent contact.

    • Available irons: 4-P, 48º, 53º

718 AP3 IRONS: The all-new 718 AP3 is the player’s distance iron. An innovative hollow-blade design with high-speed face technology, AP3 merges everything R&D has learned from creating and advancing AP1 and AP2 irons to produce the longest, fastest Titleist player’s iron ever.

AP3 was also inspired by the development of Titleist Concept C16 irons, which taught R&D how to engineer breakthrough distance and forgiveness into a player preferred, smaller footprint.



    • Hollow-blade construction combined with a thin, unsupported L-Face insert launches long and high with shot-stopping spin – even on longer shots.

    • High-MOI design – with an average of 84.9 grams of tungsten per head, placed low and in the toe of the long and mid irons – produces higher ball speeds across the face, providing the off-center distance performance of a game improvement iron.



    • New, preferred player’s shape appeals to golfers needing distance and forgiveness while maintaining control and solid feel.

    • Available irons: 3-P, 48º

718 AP2 IRONS: New 718 AP2 continues to raise the bar, improving upon the technology and performance that have made AP2 the gold standard of modern tour irons. The co-forged, cavity back design provides ultimate playability with consistent distance and forgiveness, packaged in a tour-validated profile that delivers pure forged feel.



    • A thinner forged body and face insert constructed of high-strength spring steel increases launch and ball speed for more distance. An improved CG progression, with a lower and more centered CG in the long irons, improves speed performance on off-center hits for precise distance control on every swing.



    • Forgiveness and stability are delivered through precise perimeter weighting and a unique co-forged construction pioneered by Titleist R&D, with an average of 57.4 grams of high-density tungsten placed in the heel and toe of the long and mid irons. New high density tungsten caps co-forged into the perimeter further increase MOI for maximum forgiveness at the AP2’s constant, tour-preferred blade length.

    • Tour-preferred profile offers proven look, sound and pure forged feel with a refined leading edge for more efficient turf interaction and consistent contact.

    • Available irons: 3-P, 50º

718 T-MB IRONS: The ultimate utility iron, 718 T-MB has grown into a full set of uniquely designed irons that deliver effortless distance at every loft in a technical, muscle-back shape.
Initially developed as a high launching, player’s long iron, the hollow-body, multi-material design of T-MB produces a powerful combination of high launch and forgiveness with a playable trajectory.



    • Advanced hollow-back construction with thin, unsupported L-Face insert allows the face to flex more at impact, increasing launch and speed for more distance.



    • The most high-density tungsten in the Titleist 718 lineup – with an average of 93.9 grams precisely placed in the heel and toe – optimizes launch and spin to produce higher shots that go far and land soft.

    • High-MOI design increases off-center ball speed for forgiveness while delivering stability and tour-validated feel. Improved leading edge pre-wear creates more efficient turf interaction for more consistent contact.

    • Available irons: 2-P, 50º




718 CB IRONS: New 718 CB irons continue Titleist’s legacy of delivering tour-proven performance
in a sleek, cavity back profile, delivering precision shot control with added forgiveness through the game’s most high-tech blade construction.

    • Classic but modern cavity back packed with high-density tungsten – an average of 74.8 grams precisely placed in the heel and toe in the long and mid irons – creates higher ball speeds across the face for more consistent distance on off-center hits. New tungsten caps co-forged into the perimeter further increase MOI for maximum forgiveness without the loss of workability or shot control at the CB’s constant, tour-preferred blade length.

    • Optimized CG heights, low with a slight progression up through the set, deliver precise, tour-proven trajectory, while increasing the sweet spot for solid feel.

    • Available irons: 2-P




718 MB IRONS: classic muscle back designed for today’s game, new 718 MB is the modern choice for those players desiring maximum shot control with a traditional forged look and feel.

    • Advanced muscle-back design delivers tour-proven flight with maximum shot and trajectory control. Strategically designed CG locations deliver superior shot-making and responsive feedback.

    • High muscle-back weighting, optimally positioned behind the sweet spot, provides pure, forged feel on every shot. Each MB iron is forged from a single billet of carbon steel for the purist look, sound and feel.

    • Available irons: 3-P



HIGH PERFORMANCE STOCK SHAFT MATRIX: 718’s high-performance stock shaft matrix includes all-new premium aftermarket options, including two new True Temper AMT shafts with tour-proven ascending mass technology. The new AMT Tour White (AP2) and AMT Black (AP3) models provide lighter long iron shafts for increased launch and speed and heavier short iron shafts for control in specific weight ranges matched to the target players for AP2 and AP3. The new Mitsubishi Tensei
Pro Red AMC
(Ascending Mass Concept) graphite shaft with ascending mass technology is also
available along with Nippon NS Pro 950GH as the stock options for AP1.

True Temper Project X PXi (T-MB), Project X LZ (CB) and Project X (MB) round out 718’s premium stock options. In addition, Titleist offers an industry-leading number of custom shaft choices, many at no upcharge.
