Hi Team Titleist - 

We had another busy day at the Quicken Loans National as Titleist Tour Reps fitted players for prototype Titleist 718 irons, to prepare them for an integral part of our iron performance validation process. It is on these proving grounds where we ensure every Titleist club is delivering on our brand promise of innovation, performance, and quality excellence.

Enjoy our photo gallery below and look inside our Tour seeding process. If you're interested in future updates about the Titleist 718 irons, click here to sign up for our email interest list!

    Best day of my golf season with the announcement of the 718 irons. I have been looking for ways to improve my AP2 irons set with easier to hit long irons and now I have a best option with the AP3. I love Titleist!!! Thanks for making my day!!
  2. Chris B

    I'll be happy to test the 718 AP2s for TT!
  3. Augie H

    since titleist announced that hybrids are now released along with irons how soon will we see the new 818h1/h2 pictures and info?
  4. Mike H

    Based on all the pictures it looks like a lot of tour players are trying out the new CB. They do look very nice I can't wait to try them either. The entire line looks like a great step forward for each iron.
  5. Joe D

    Looks like a great time!
    Thanks for a the pics Abby.
    Would love to hear the play by play at the seeding introduction.
  6. Barry B

    Another great set of pics! Would love to be able to watch and hear what goes on during these initial sessions, that would be a great experience.
  7. Blake T

    new ap3 irons look gorgeous, can't wait to get my hands on some and try them out
  8. brian b

    I just added these to my Christmas list!
  9. APhillip

    Great pics, thanks for sharing ....
  10. Brian D

    Some more great shots inside the ropes..thanks for sharing.

    Still hoping to hear more about those AP3's..
  11. Kevin B

    SWEET STICKS Abbey! Great news and thanks for putting all of us inside the ropes!

    2 Quick Questions-
    1.) Any rough idea of release?
    2,) Which model will replace the 716 (AP1) and 716 (AP2) ?

    Thanks so much.
  12. Rick D

    Getting a little older and leaking a little distance, I've been thinking of possible need to switch to AP1's from my current AP2's. But I don't like the larger head and increased offset. AP3's may be the solution. Can't wait to see these out and available for fitting.
  13. Dr O

    They all look so good. Titleist now offering ap3, killing me! How can I choose with so many great choices. So excited to demo when available
  14. Kevin B


    Now that my wife is finished with her Cancer treatment, if you ever need an senior, 12-15 handicap to come test any equipment in Carlsbad at any time I'm 90 minutes away and would be more than pleased to do so.

    If there's a list I'd love to be on it!

  15. RCCPA

    With the few pics I've seen of the AP3s, my interest level rises. Can't wait to test them.
