AP stands for Advanced Performance and golfer were certainly convinced that the original AP2 could deliver as it became the number one iron model on the PGA Tour in both 2008 and 2009. The new Titleist AP2 Iron builds on that success and features some refinements that will continue to make this such an appealing club for scratch golfers through to those of you with handicaps of around 15. The new AP2 irons feature a multi material clubhead with a dual cavity.
The result is a forged iron that offers classic looks, improved feel and consistent performance. For this refined AP2 model Titleist have introduced a new Tuned Feel System that comprises a co-moulded medallion of soft elastomer and aluminium plate which is inserted into the back of the carbon steel body along with the tungsten nickel cavity insert. This, combined with the tungsten nickel sole box, helps to really improve the sound and feel at impact by reducing the chances of shots producing a bad sound or poor feel. For good golfers who measure their shots by the feedback produced at impact this will prove to be an excellent addition to the AP2 range.
Using feedback from the professional tours Titleist have also removed about 1 degree of bounce from the sole of the short irons, a subtle change but one that low handicappers will really see benefit their performance. The dual cavity means that the weight has been distributed to the perimeter of the clubhead to help improve both forgiveness and playability while retaining the excellent control that the Titleist AP2 is famed for. The Titleist AP2 Iron comes with a True Temper Dynamic Golf shaft.
