Titleist 718 Irons Selection FAQ

Q: How do the 718 AP1, AP2, and AP3 differ?
A: The 718 AP1, AP2, and AP3 irons from Titleist have all been built for different types of players. The AP1 model is designed for golfers in need of extra forgiveness or launch from their irons. The bigger clubhead and lower center of gravity generates better performance when contact is not made in the center of the clubface. The AP2, meanwhile, is a smaller clubhead shape that will work best for players who consistently find the center of the clubface. These irons are great for golfers looking to shape shots. The AP3 irons are a combination of the AP1 and AP2, featuring a hollow-body shape that emphasizes distance but also delivers a little bit of workability.

Q: How many irons should I have in my bag?
A: This will differ depending on the player. Most set configurations include a 4-iron through pitching wedge. However, many golfers would be better using a 4-hybrid or 5-hybrid instead of a 4-iron or 5-iron. As long as you are confident in your ability to hit any particular iron high enough to hold the green, it can stay in your bag. For most golfers, this extends to about a 4-iron or 5-iron. But replacing a hybrid with an iron will always create a higher launch and promote a softer landing on the green.

Q: Are the 718 AP2s only for low-handicappers?
A: Not necessarily. Some golfers might be mid-handicap golfers despite consistently finding the center of the clubface with their irons. Meanwhile, a low-handicap golfer might still need a little bit of forgiveness from their irons than the AP2 irons can deliver. In this case, the AP3 irons would be a great fit. But, generally, AP2 irons are best played by golfers with lower handicaps.

Q: What’s the best way to identify the iron shaft that’s best for my game?
A: If you are unable to go through a fitting with one of 2nd Swing’s award-winning fitters, you can still identify the shaft that is best for your game. Golfers with faster swing speeds and quicker tempos are a fit for a heavier stiff or x-stiff flex shaft. Meanwhile, slower swing speeds and slower tempos will fit into a lighter shaft with more flex. It’s important to note that selecting the correct shaft is not just about raw swing speed, but the swing tempo also matters just as much. In general, golfers that hit their 7-iron 150 yards or more should play a stiff shaft, while golfers that hit a 9-iron or pitching wedge 150 yards may need to consider an x-stiff flex depending on their swing tempo.

Q: How can I get fit for Titleist 718 Irons?
A: The best way to get fit for Titleist 718 irons is to schedule an appointment on our fitting website, fitting.2ndswing.info, or to call (612) 216-4152. A member of our award-winning staff will work one-on-one with you to identify your swing tendencies and determine which 718 iron model in our massive selection is right for your game.
