Welcome to our 2019 Titleist T200 irons review.
I’m an avid golfer, a
9.2 7 handicap on my way to a 2 (been a 5.6) and frequent tester of golf clubs and equipment since 2015.
I had these for a couple weeks on the range and on the course.
Summary: These are the best mid handicap irons I’ve tested in 2020. They feel great thanks to the True Temper AMT Black S300 shafts. The heads sit so nice behind the ball. They get up fast, go for days and have plenty forgiveness.
These are the second irons I’ve tested that gave me that “Wow” factor with the first strike. (the first being Taylormade M5 irons)
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve tested a lot of irons I really like…but man. The T200s are something.
Testing time with the Titleist T200s
On the range: 2 sessions
- I’ll go through 2 or 3 buckets and test them against my irons for distance, trajectory, shaping(that’ll be a tight draw for me), and forgiveness
On the course: 2 rounds
- I pull every club I would normally pull if I were playing my set. I also try to set myself up so I’ll need to use every iron in the set. This is strategically done with lay ups on par 5s and off the tee.
I knew I was going to hit the T200s well before I ever put them behind a ball.
I could tell from the first time
- I grabbed one of them. Waggled it. Then, put it on the floor in an address position.
Some irons inspire confidence. The T200s from Titleist are such a club.
Here’s what I didn’t know: How well they would perform. Time for pleasant surprises
A little truth in advertising before we begin. The T200s have strong lofts like all game improvement irons produced these days.(1)
They have CG and launch so optimized that weaker or standard lofts from just a few years ago would send your shots ballooning up in the air and falling out of the sky.
This is bad. Add any kind of wind and we are talking nightmare and frustration.
Why am I mentioning this?
These irons are long. Maulers. Up fast. Carry for days. Drop on a dime. Long.
I play Taylormade P790s and these are every bit as long…which is long.
They are going to be one to one and a half clubs LONGER than your current set of irons if they are more than 3 to 5 years old.
Looks – Elegant and sleek. Thinnish topline and sole. Frame the ball perfectly. Confidence-inspiring
Feel – Balanced and solid feel at impact. Have to give some credit to the True Temper AMT Black S300 shafts
Distance – Long…very Long. 1 to 1 1/2 clubs longer than any club over 4 years old.
Trajectory – I found my ball launched quickly and stayed in the air longly.
Forgiveness – I was only marginally punished with a loss of distance for my standard miss toward the toe. Very playable.
Who are the T200 Irons for?
Low Handicappers: Yes…If you like looking down at slightly larger club heads. You will love their performance.
Mid Handicappers: Yes. Oui. Si. These are a mid handicappers dream.
One caveat: those at the higher end of the mid handicap range, say 13 or 14 on up, may want to look down at a larger club head. When in doubt…test them for yourself.
High Handicappers: No. Not impossible for you to play these, but there are better options.

Incredibly easy to hit. Feel and sound great too. Similar performance to Stealth irons.
