2023 Titleist T-Series irons (T100, T150, T200, T350 and U505): Everything you need to know



Following months of Tour validation by professional golfers around the world, Titleist has officially announced that its new 2023 T-Series iron family is coming to retail. And, finally, we have all of the long-awaited tech details.

The 2023 T-Series iron models will include the T100, T150, T200 and T350 irons. In addition to the T-Series iron announcement, Titleist has also officially launched a new U505 driving iron (but more on that below).

Yes, it’s now confirmed that the T100S from the previous generation has been replaced with a new T150 model, and the previous game-improvement T300 iron has been replaced with the new T350.

These aren’t just changes to the model names, either. The T150 and the T350 are completely new designs.

When looking at the T-Series as a whole, Titleist has certainly designed more uniformity into the family. Now, the four models within the 2023 T-Series lineup have less visual disparity between them. For golfers who use a mixed-model bag setup, the uniformity can certainly help out with the bag appeal factor. (According to Titleist, 80 percent of Titleist PGA Tour staffers use a blended set of mixed models. For the amateurs, if you aren’t already using more forgiving long-iron options, it might be time to give that a try. Just look at PGA Tour player WITB’s these days.)

Notice especially the centered “Titleist” scripting on each T-Series model…and the back cavities of the T200 and T350.

You’ll also notice a more constant shape between the models when looking down from address (from left-to-right, the T100, T150, T200 and T350).

Similar-looking, yes.

But, of course, functionally different, in order to help satisfy the needs of different golfers.

For golfers interested in putting together a mixed T-Series set of their own, or simply getting the right gapping within their set, Titleist recommends aiming for a ball speed gap of 5 mph between irons. That means your 7-iron should produce 5 mph more ball speed than your 8-iron, which should produce 5 mph more ball speed than your 9-iron, and so on.

If there’s less than a 5 mph gap between irons, then you probably have two clubs that are essentially doing similar jobs, and that’s when it’s time to look at a more forgiving model, or a replacement club entirely.

That being said, let’s break down exactly what’s new and different for each of the new T-Series models. The new irons are currently available for pre-sale. Each 7-piece set will sell for $1,399 with a steel shaft, or $1,499 with a graphite.

2023 Titleist T100 irons

Titleist’s previous T100 model irons were already among the most popular irons for better players, in both amateur and professional ranks, so a complete redesign probably would have disappointed many.

Titleist works closely with Tour players and amateurs, however, and they used feedback on previous models to improve upon the T100 canvas it had already, rather than disrupting what’s proven to work.

As the collective consensus proved, improving the feel of the iron was paramount.

To do that, Titleist designers enhanced the back bar that sits between the upper and lower portions of the dual-cavity construction. According to Titleist, the improvements create a more solid feel at impact, and the heads were tuned by the company’s modal testing for extra measure.

The new 2023 T100 iron models are fully forged, have CNC-milled faces, and they have dual, heavy D18 Tungsten weights in the heel-and-toe sections of the back cavities to improve forgiveness and dial in their centers of gravity.

Titleist also worked with both Tour pros and the Vokey wedge team to improve the Variable Bounce Sole. The trailing edge was smoothened and softened to help “flow faster through the turf, even after contact,” according to Titleist.

The “featured” steel shaft is True Temper’s AMT Tour White, which has ascending mass technology (3 grams per club). The featured graphite shaft is Mitsubishi’s Tensei White AM2, which also has ascending mass technology (2 grams per club).

Check out the 2023 T100 specs below (they’re the same as the previous generation).

2023 Titleist T150 irons

Instead of bringing back the previous T100S design, which was basically a T100 iron that was 2 degrees stronger per club throughout the set, Titleist designed an entirely new model to satisfy the needs of that in-between golfer.

In a press release, Titleist says, “If you loved AP2 and thought T100 was ‘a bit too small,’ this is your new iron.”

The T150 is slightly larger than the T100, with a thicker topline to help increase distance and forgiveness. Like the T100S irons that came before them, the T150 irons are built 2 degrees stronger than the T100 irons, as well.

To improve feel at impact, the T150 has a muscle channel in the back cavity behind the face for a more solid feel at impact.

Like the 2023 T100, the T150 also has D18 Tungsten weights in the back cavity, and a refined sole for improved turf interaction.

Think of the T150 as having the same design package and construction as the T100, except it’s the “1.5” version. It’s slightly bigger, faster and more forgiving.

Here are the T150 specs:

2023 Titleist T200 irons

If there were gripes about the former T200 irons, it was probably because of feel and sound at impact. Titleist heard your feedback on the previous T200 irons, and it listened.

The new 2023 T200 irons have a reengineered chassis to create a stiffer structure and create a more stable feeling and muted sound. They also refined the Max Impact Technology within the head to sit closer to the L-face, further solidifying the feel.

The new 2023 T200 was also designed with less offset for a cleaner look from the distance iron at address.

2023 Titleist T350 irons

The T300 is out, and the T350 is in.

The new T350 irons are still built for maximum distance and forgiveness, but they were redesigned with a hollow-body construction that’s inspired by the T200. Like the T200, the T350 also uses Max Impact Technology behind the face to maximize speed and forgiveness, and dual-tungsten weights in the back cavity.

The T350 irons are noticeably larger, and with thicker toplines, than the T200 irons for golfers who need the additional surface area and stability.

If you hit the ball all over the face with your irons, or you’re looking for maximum distance, or you need something more forgiving at the top end of your set (3-6 iron), that’s where the new T350 comes in.

2023 Titleist U505 irons

While not technically a “T-Series” iron, the new U505 irons were also officially launched to the retail market today.

The new utility irons are designed for the golfer who’s looking for a long-iron replacement that offers increased launch and distance. It’s not necessarily a “driving iron,” it’s more of a “utility,” which launches a bit higher and has more function from the turf.

Thus, the “U” in U505.

Titleist says the new U505 has a shorter blade length and shallower face, with redesigned Max Impact Technology, a reengineered chassis, a new Variable Bounce Sole, and the company added dampening in the muscle badge for improved sound and feel.

Overall, the center of gravity sits lower to the ground in order to boost speed and stability, and a new single-taper face design is meant to especially help with forgiveness on heel strikes.

The U505 utility irons are selling for $269 with a “featured” shaft, and $399 with a “premium” shaft.

    Hit T200, like the Paradigm they were 15-20 yards longer than ZX5 MkII. I bought the Srixons. 195 yard 7 iron? No thanks. But they felt great.

    The first T200 sounded like an aluminum bat hitting a brick wall. Hope these are better

Odyssey Ai-One: Artificial Intelligence comes to putters



We spotted Odyssey’s new Ai-One and Ai-One Milled putters down the stretch of the PGA Tour season and were able to photograph them on the putting green at the Shriners Children’s Open three weeks ago.

And we didn’t just spot the wands on the putting green; they wound up in some pretty big-time bags pretty quickly.

Jacob Davidson, GM of Odyssey Golf and Callaway VP of Global Tour spoke to this:

“We knew we had a great product when we launched this because the testing results came in so strong, but the one thing that I think we were a little bit, maybe not surprised, but excited about was early on – this putter captured the attention of the best players in the world. This putter is already in the bag of a number one player in the world (Ruoning Yin). This putter is already in the bag of our Masters Champion (Jon Rahm). This putter is already in the bag of someone that made a switch at the Tour Championship (Sam Burns)…the same player has never made a switch in putter since he turned professional in 2017.”

Given all of the aforementioned, intrigue abounded at GolfWRX HQ and in the GolfWRX forums around Callaway/Oddysey’s apparent application of artificial intelligence to putter design. Speculation about the cutaways behind the putter faces and what exactly was being showcased was rife as well. A putter face designed leveraging the powers of artificial intelligence, perhaps?

In a word, yes.

Odyssey today unveiled its Ai-One and Ai-One milled putters, which leverage the company’s Artificial Intelligence design and super-computing capabilities, honed in recent driver faces, to create what the company is calling “the most advanced insert in golf.”

What this means visually is a unique contour pattern on the back of the insert face designed to minimize speed loss on off-center putts and expand the sweet spot. Translation: Putts that finish up to 21 percent closer to the hole, according to Odyssey.

Detail of the rear side of the Odyssey Ai-One putter face.

Introducing the putter line, Luke Williams Sr. Global Director at Odyssey said:

“We’ve designed two different putters under this Ai-One umbrella with really two different objectives. We have the milled line, the champagne-colored insert which is a milled titanium insert in a milled stainless steel head. So you get that look and feel of a milled putter, that is very important to us, to have the feel of that be consistent with what players that use milled putters expect, but with performance you wouldn’t get from a typical milled putter.

“And then we also knew that we wanted to have a White Hot version or a urethane softer feeling insert because that’s what through the years has really had the most decided advantage in the marketplace and really has become what we’ve been most known for, so that insert is a combination of an aluminum back section which has the contours which deliver the consistent ball speed married and co-molded to a White Hot urethane on the front. And that delivers the soft feel and the sound that that players have come to love for White Hot, so those are the two types of inserts – they both have tremendous performance.”

Let’s dig in further.

Odyssey Ai-One putters

At the heart of the Ai-One tech story is the Ai-One insert. A contoured aluminum insert is co-molded to the back of Odyssey’s famed White Hot insert in a bid for enhanced forgiveness and a larger sweet spot. Also notable from a feel standpoint: the White Hot insert is grooved.

Rightly proud of the innovation, Odyssey engineers developed a Panlite window to showcase the face technology behind a layer of automotive-grade polymer. The window is positioned in different locations on blade and mallet models.

Deviating from the traditional black exterior, engineers elected to use a blue PVD finish across the line.

5, 10, 15, and 20-gram weights may be used interchangeably to dial in head weight. Also, the latest iteration of Stroke Lab is a steel SL 90 shaft, which features up to 30 grams of weight in the butt end for counterbalancing.

  • At retail and online: November 3
  • Price: $299.99
  • Head shapes (November 3): #1, Double Wide DB, Rossie S, #7S, and #7CH

Odyssey Ai-One Milled putters

Similar to the Ai-One, the insert design is essential to the Odyssey Ai-One Milled putter story. For this premium, milled stainless steel model, engineers utilize an A.I.-designed titanium insert to again achieve a larger sweet spot and enhanced forgiveness, minimizing speed loss on putts struck away from the center of the face.

Again, engineers implemented a blue PVD finish, and 5, 10, 15, and 20-gram weights may be used interchangeably to dial in head weight. The steel SL 90 shaft is standard here as well.

Pricing, specs, and availability

  • At retail and online: November 3
  • Price: $449.99
  • Head shapes: One T, Two T, Three T, Six T, Seven T DB, Seven T CH, Eight T, and Eleven T

Cam Young spotted with 1-of-1 Titleist 631.CY irons



Add another player to the list of golfers playing custom Titleist muscleback irons.

Cameron Young was spotted with “631.CY” irons in the bag ahead of the World Wide Technology Championship, gaming the new clubs in his 6- through 9-irons.

Young looks to be joining Adam Scott, Webb Simpson, and Justin Thomas in playing custom Titleist irons.

Image c/o

According to’s Sean Martin, the difference between Young’s 631.CY irons and off-the-rack Titleist 620 MB irons is the sole of the club. Owing to Young’s steep delivery and substantial shaft lean, Titleist had been grinding the soles of his 620 MB irons to add bounce in his short irons. 631.CY irons are forged with extra bounce.

“The short irons in the 631.CY’s have a little more leading-edge bounce, and then they float to a little bit wider sole than the 620 MB’s into his 6-iron,” Titleist’s Titleist’s Director, Player Promotions, J.J. Van Wezenbeeck said. “All the (631.CY’s) are higher-bounce than the 620 MB’s, but there’s also a little more sole width as you graduate (through the set).”

Image c/o

As Van Wezenbeeck indicates, the longer irons have slightly wider soles, which lowers the clubs’ center of gravity for higher launch. For example, Van Wezenbeeck said Young is hitting the 631.CY 6-irons 1 to 1.5 degrees higher.

Young will continue to use a 2023 Titleist T150 3-iron and T100 4- and 5-irons. He uses a Vokey Design SM9 wedge instead of a set-matching PW.
