Titleist T200 Utility Iron Review

What’s new? How much does it cost? And how does it perform? Jack Backhouse brings you the low down on the new Titleist T200 utility iron

 

The Titleist T200 utility iron is Titleist’s player-inspired, more compact utility driving iron, designed to launch slightly lower and a fraction less forgiving than the U505 utility iron version. So, how does it perform? Find out in our Titleist T200 utility iron review.

4.5 star review
NCG SUMMARY

This utility iron is an absolute classic. It has the sound, the feel, and the low flight absolutely nailed. There is no better-looking utility iron available to buy right now.

If you are looking at upgrading from an old utility iron the T200 absolutely needs looking at, from the minute you pick it up you will not find any flaws in it.

PROS

  • Great distance
  • Incredibly powerful trajectory
  • Feels like a forged iron

CONS

  • Not as forgiving or easy to hit as the U505

Titleist T200 Utility Iron Review: First Impressions

I turned up to Titleist’s Performance Centre at Woburn this summer not to try driving irons, but to test the new T Series irons they are releasing. However, out of the corner of my eye, I spotted the T200 utility iron, and I couldn’t have moved quicker in its direction to pick it up and have a waggle.

There is nothing about the design of this club that I do not love. It’s compact, you can’t see the back of it at address, and it blends really nicely with the blade-style irons I love so much. Turning up to a scratch team match and seeing your opponent with one of these in the bag would basically give them half a hole head start.

NCG Verdict

As a lifelong Titleist fanboy, I’m keen to get a Titleist utility iron in my bag. One of the guys I play a lot of golf with used to have an old 712 utility iron that went forever, I could never hit it as far, but it felt like a serious weapon.

On a hot summer’s day at Titleist’s Performance Centre at Woburn, I was right in the mood for testing utility irons after just being fit into a new set of T100 irons.

My first shot with the Titleist T200 utility iron came out like an absolute rocket. The 3 iron replacement club utilizes denser D18 tungsten weights which provides greater mass efficiency and allowed Titleist engineers to position the CG more precisely for fast, forgiving, and high-launching utility club.

I hit the ball pretty low, so I was grateful for the tungsten and low CoG. I hit a regular 3-iron pretty much waist high, and I need all the help I can get. My next few shots were all pretty much exactly the same as the first, low-powerful draws.

Every component of the multi-material hollow body construction contributes to the long, consistent distance of the T200 utility. The improved ‘Max Impact Technology’ (a high resilience polymer core behind the sweet spot) improves both off-centre speed and mass efficiency at impact across a forged, high COR SUP-10 L-Face Insert.

Just look at my Trackman data! I am overjoyed with an average carry of 227 yards, and 245 total distance is epic, and to do it with an average of 4000rpm backspin is the cherry on the cake. I usually see bad shots that go left and don’t spin, so these numbers excite me.

I have hit a few shots out of the semi-rough with this club, and I did struggle to keep the height and spin on the shots. This might move me more towards the U505 utility club with it being just that bit bigger and more forgiving. If I was just going to use this club from the tee or just fairway then it wouldn’t really matter.

There are also a number of lofts available, coming in 2,3,4 long iron replacement heads. Although this club is tour inspired with a thin top line, short blade length and narrow sole, it is not just for good players. It is pretty easy to hit, and with the different shaft options available, there will be a set-up that suits your game.

Callaway Epic Max driver review

Jack is a PGA Golf Professional who specialises in coaching, teaching golf to beginners and top-level amateurs for 10+ years. He also loves his golf equipment and analysing the data of the latest clubs on the market using launch monitors, specialising in blade irons and low-spinning drivers despite having a chronically low ball flight.

Although Jack has no formal journalism training, He has been reading What's In The Bag articles since he started playing at 12 and studying golf swings since his dad first filmed his swing to reveal one of the worst over-the-top slice swings he reckons has ever been recorded, which set him off on the path to be a coach. His favourite club ever owned was a Ping G10 driver bought from a local top amateur with the hope that some of the quality golf shots would come with it (they didn't), and worst was a Nike SQ driver he only bought because Tiger was using it.

Jack is a member of Sand Moor Golf Club and regularly gets out on the golf course to prepare for tournaments. Jack uses a TaylorMade BRNR Mini driver, a half set of TaylorMade P7MB irons, MG4 wedges and a TaylorMade TP Reserve putter.
