    Hi all, last week I went to my local driving range/fitting centre as wanted to try out the 718 AP3's. Really loved the feel off the face and felt pretty forgiving too. I play off 13 but really want to get down to single figures so thought I would try the AP2's and in all honesty I could not feel/see much difference at all so edging towards the AP2's but also might look at combo with AP3 in 4/5 iron. Planning on full custom fit in next 7-10 days to really dial in the numbers etc.. My thoughts are that AP2 will help me longer term as and when handicap starts to drop....

    Can't go wrong with either club. If you goal is to lower your handicap, do the analysis as to where you are loosing the most strokes. If iron accuracy isn't your biggest derailer, make sure your decision doesn't compound your weaknesses. There are a lot of single digit handicappers with AP3 and even AP1. That said, keep an open mind at your fitting and enjoy the journey.

    Your handicap will drop with improving ball striking and accuracy. The AP3 will offer more consistency. The AP2 can offer better shot shaping in the hands of the skilled player. So it depends on which will help you get lower faster. If you are missing greens right and left, the AP3 may be a better choice.

    I like comments Don, it's all very well hitting from mat at driving range but when there is specific targets/greens to hit it's a different story...I agree and think AP3 might well be the ones but I will keep open mind when going for fitting. I'll be using the Pro I've had lessons with for fitting as he knows my swing etc...

    Can we expect a new Titleist Tour Golf Bag soon? If so, will it be offered in both 9.5 and 10.5 inches?
    Thanks in anticipation.

    Not sure what kind of ball striker you are but imo too many people play the 2 and 3. I went with the ap1 and have never looked back. Coming from a guy that played miz players irons for 11 years. The main difference you will see is in your scorecard. Best wishes.

    I am a 11.5 handicap. For the past 5 yrs I played the AP1's. This year I went for another fitting. I decided on AP3's. Loved how they look and feel. Also they offer some forgiveness. Figure with these I will reach single digit.

    I play to a 6.3 and switched last year from MP59's to AP3's and love them. Playing at least 4 times a week when weather permits helps. The 2 main guys that I play with have single digit handicaps. One plays AP1 and the other cally CF16, both game improvement irons. For me, the more enjoyment I have on the course, the lower my handicap. Remember Arnie, "rule 35, enjoy the game".

    The combo set is the way to go for sure. AP3 in the longer irons will give you great distance but also more forgiving in those harder to hit clubs

    I play of 13 and am looking to get to single figures. I went for a fitting determined to walk away with AP2s but all the figures said that the AP3 would be best for me.
    I am a solid iron striker but to be honest I don't try and shape the ball. I personally feel that long, high and straight is sufficient. As such I looked for 'protection' from the miss hit rather than the possibility of shaping the ball.
    Good Luck with the fitting and getting to single figures. I hope to see you in the 'single figure club' next year.

    Both SUPER feeling clubs. For me, ball trajectory is everything. Whatever I flight lower, I play with. The lofts are strong on the 3's, so I didn't make the move. I'm an MB guy, but for me, it would be the 2's. Strong lofts are great for most guys, but I'd have to re-configure my wedge gaps as well.....

    I'm a single digit handicapper and was in the same situation. I went with the AP3s. I know I dont strike the ball as well as I used to do and decided I wanted the extra help during the rounds that are a little sideways.
