2020 Official Member Review: Titleist T100S/T200 irons

I'm sure that Corey and the rest at Titleist were hoping for uniformly high ratings, and I appreciate that they took a risk with a foursome of MyGolfSpy forum players.  One thing is clear, we're not simply shilling, we each gave this our honest best.  I have a feeling that my opinion of the clubs will continue to climb as I play them more, and I think that comes through in the review.  I know I said I'm going to stop thinking, but I'll make sure to update this thread as time goes on.

It didn't take long for me to come back.  I played in an interclub match on Sunday, and had a pretty solid day, 79 on 72.3/137 at about  6560 yards.  Hit one driver off the course, but was otherwise pretty solid.  I'm feeling much more relaxed with distance, much more able to just make normal swings.  I did hit one iron shot over a green, but 2 of the other 3 guys were long too, we all misread the wind.  A couple of holes later I picked a perfect club, 132  yards uphill, into the wind, a little 8-iron 3/4 swing with the ball a little back, in to 10 feet.  That's a 150 club flighted down and hit smooth, me trusting the club.  For most of the day it was improved trust, solid swings, solid contact, good results.

Awesome review guys!  Thanks for doing a top notch job and going through the detail that you did.  Not only do we learn about a cool product, we all get another example of how a proper review should be done.

... Just an interesting observation. Nelly and Jessica Korda have both replaced their PXG 0311T irons with Titleist T100 irons. Nelly is #2 in the world and Jessica is arguably one of the best ball strikers on Tour. 

They probably read your review and said let's get those new Titleist clubs! 🤭

Went over to a Golf Galaxy to try out the T200’s and the Srixon 585.
I’m a 150-155 7-iron hitter. Had a bit more trouble turning over a slight draw on the 585’s and no distance gain. The T200’s were awesome. Loved em! I was peppering the driving range with a wonderful baby draw. Was avg abt 160-165 carry. Might be at the top of my list!!
Any of the testers left handed? Haha

... I am still counting my lucky stars. 🤩 About this time I would be selling my P760's and maybe another set to buy the P770's. But my T100-S irons have made looking at new irons something to do just for fun. Who knows what the Winter or Spring my bring but I still have not seen a better looking iron at address than the T100-S.

Well I was getting to the intro part.  But first impressions were great overall.  Went to the range yesterday, cannot believe how soft they feel.

There’s a surprise [emoji106]

So as not to leave everyone wondering, the T100-S are a good club but would have been a backup for me. Alan hit me up and offered to trade for his Blueprints. I honestly didn't want to do another test of irons, as Srixon's are just too good for me. However after contemplating it for a couple of days I had an epiphany. Shane, my "golf wife" of over 20 years has owned 2 sets of clubs during his 40+ year playing career and on top of that he told me a week prior that he was thinking of Ping irons. So I accepted the trade and gifted the blueprints to him. And while they are not technically in the MGS family, they are and forever will be on a leash attached to me. I am not sure I can convince him to join, but I plan on getting something, interview, thoughts etc. to add to Blueprint thread. 

 

Thank you Titleist, MGS and MODS for another great testing opportunity.

The t200’s are not currently in my bag. Although they probably should be. My best scores this year are still all with the t200’s in the bag. 
I had a stint with some PXG’s and am now looking to find some Honma TW-X and P790’s to take for a spin. It is a viscous cycle but the club ho in me is never satisfied! 😂

I get it! The quest to find the perfect irons is never ending. Plus, I know for me personally, my low scores this year did not necessarily have that much to do with my iron play. 

It seems that the takeaway of the reviews/outcomes in this thread that the T200's could be classified as an "I like them...but I don't love them" set of sticks.

I wouldn’t necessarily say that. If I’m not mistaken there are a set of each still in testers bags and a set of each that didn’t make it. As for me they may still end up in the bag when I’m done being a ho!  As I said in my review they tick almost every box for me.  
 

I think the take away from this review should be that they are great irons and will fit a lot of golfers. However just like other irons they will not suit/fit everyone. 
 

As always getting fit is the best option and hitting as many as possible to truly know which is the best for you.

I don't believe any set of irons will transform my game, or anyone's game, as long as you are already playing with decent clubs that are at least an approximately decent fit for you.  Having said that, the T200s are really solid clubs, and will remain in my bag for the foreseeable future.  They offer a definite advantage over my previous clubs (AP-2 714), in that they hit the ball higher for a given carry distance.  The forgiveness is good, and they look great.  They aren't going to take me from a 5 handicap to scratch on their own, there's no club made that can do that, but they're certainly good enough to allow me to improve my game to scratch level if I'm physically capable and I put in the work.

Like as compared to love, you'll never hear me say I love any particular set of clubs.  They're the tools we use to play a game, and these are really good tools..
