I am using titleist dci 981 irons witch i purchased in 2000 (ca). I haven't played much golf in recent years and my swing is more restricted as not so supple as before. I find it difficult to hit sound iron shots (especially 3-5 iron), also i have lost distance especially with these irons. I'm "back to business" as far as playing golf at a regular basis is concerned (54 holes a week). Hoping to cut my hcp. back to were it was (4), what titleist irons should i buy? Any ideas?

Good guestion.....AP1s might be a good fit for you or a combination of AP1s and AP2s.....but I am not a fitter....I would recommend that you go to a reputable fitter and try the new AP1s and AP2s and see what he/she would recommend.....regard the longer irons (i.e. 3 or 4 iron) you might consider taking a look at Titleist hybrids.....very easy to hit and forgiving.......in combining sets, some have gone AP1 5, 6, 7 and AP2 8,9,PW and then Vokey wedges.......just food for thought......again, the key is proper fitting which leads to more fairways and greens and having fun......

I recently purchased the AP1's and I LOVE them. They are very forgiving and easy to hit. In my opinion, the AP1's long irons are the best feeling long irons out there. I tried many different clubs during my fitting and nothing could compare!! Good luck!

My suggestion would be to go to a facility where you can hit the different models that Titleist has to offer. When I went to demo the irons I was pretty sure I was going to get the AP2's.  I had the 990 irons and thought that maybe I was getting too old to handle the 714 CB or MB irons. After trying both clubs on two separate occasions I ended up with the 714CB's. My handicap has dropped from an 8 to a five. Love the 714CB and have actually gained some of the distance that I had lost. Have also found it easier to hit the 3 - 5 irons higher.

Good luck on your quest for new and better irons.

pal m: it could get confusing listening to all our advise because most of us went to fitters.....best advise, do the same....go see a fitter and try every combination........until you are happy.....and until you get that FEEL......cheers....chuck
