This is Golfer Geeks’ review of the Titleist 620 CB irons.
I’m an avid golfer, a 9.2 handicap on my way to a 2 (been a 5.6) and frequent tester of golf clubs and equipment since 2015.
I tested 620 CB irons over 2 ranges sessions and a round of golf.
Summary: Titleist 620 CB irons are absolute eye-candy for low handicaps with exceptional sound, feel, and playability. They performed exactly as I expected, except for distance. They were half a club longer or more during my round. All this with classic lofts, even weaker than the irons I play. Try these and you’ll buy these, is my bet.
In this Titleist 620 CB irons review, I discuss my experience with the clubs, unique features and benefits, as well as customer reviews and potential alternatives.
Titleist 620 CB Irons Overview
These are 100% player cavity back irons without apology. The lofts are old school. The topline and sole are thin. Offset is minimal, and so is the design. But… they look playable as all get out. I’ve come to expect a LOT out of Titleist irons and the 620 CBs don’t disappoint.
Why Consider the Titleist 620 CB Irons
Are you a strong ball-striker that likes looking down at compact “player” looking clubheads
- The Titleist 620 CB irons may be for you.
They have every bit of the performance, feel, sound, and looks you expect from a Titleist iron. I expected much and they delivered much. These are your clubs if you’ve got the skills.
Features & Benefits
This is a classic cavity back from Titleist, so there aren’t many bells and whistles.
- They’ve reduced offset, which is big in the low handicap golfing world
- They’ve made the topline thinner than prior models. It is thin, but not scary at all to my eyes
- They’ve added tungsten weighting to the 3 and 4-iron for better balance
- They’ve refined the sole for better turf interaction
Here’s what I know – They look and perform awesome
Testing the Titleist 620 CB Irons
2 Range sessions: First time, I was testing the Callaway Rogue ST Max LS driver along side them. I don’t like to hit too many drivers in a row. Messes up my tempo and swing sequence too much. (The white thing is the DownUnder board. A training aid I use often and recommend.)
1 Round of golf: I couldn’t wait for this one and I wasn’t disappointed. I could/would put these in play today.
My Experience with the Titleist 620 CB Irons
Specs: 620 CB 3-PW Iron Set Men Right Hand – True Temper Project X LZ Steel Stiff Flex
I loved hitting them from the first shot. Honestly, I knew this would be the case and I would have been surprised otherwise. Titleist knows how to do irons, especially player irons.
I’m a strong iron player, but I’m not great. I hit the 620 CBs well on the range and on the course. I looked down with confidence at address and was able to take my normal swing and play my normal game.
I hit high tight draws all day and was able to flight the ball down and take off distance on command. Really all you can ask out of your irons.
Review of the Titleist 620 CB Irons
Looks (A+) Images you see online and even images on this page don’t do justice to the 620 CBs. They are a low-handicap’s dream. Compact heads.
Thin topline and sole – but not too thin. Slightly dull or brushed metal finish. They look great behind the ball at address, too.
I’m a large fan of minimal, elegant clubhead design. You’ll need to get them in your hand to appreciate.
Sound/ Feel (A) Excellent feedback and sound at impact. Exactly what you expect from a Titleist player iron. No harshness on mishits either.
Distance: (A+) These are NOT player “performance” or “distance” irons. The lofts are old school (not jacked). They aren’t injected with anything, either. The heads are compact. But, I hit these surprisingly long during my round.
I pulled the 7-iron (35 degrees) on a 168 yd par 3. The pin was in the back and the back edge of the green was 179 yards. I hit a high draw right over the pin and flew 2 yards over the green (~181 yds). My 7-iron (34 degrees) is normally my 165 yd to 170ish yd club.
Forgiveness: (A) Exactly as expected. You don’t need perfect contact for good results, but you need good contact for decent results. No overly punishing in any way.
Flight / Playability: A+ Precisely why you buy these irons. They are categorized as low launch on the Titleist website, but I got my normal med-high to high ball flight with ease. I played my draw all day and flighted shots down with minimal effort.
Very little out there, but the few I found were happy with their purchase.
Who are the Titleist 620 CB irons for for?
Low Handicap – YesYesYes. I have no idea why you wouldn’t love these irons. You can try the Titleist 620 MBs if you want a more demanding club with similar playing characteristics.
Mid Handicap – Yes, if you are a single-digit strong ball striker
High Handicap – No and Way
Our Verdict on Titleist 620 CB Irons
The 620 CB irons deliver in every way you expect low-handicap irons to deliver. From looks, to shot shaping, to flighting, to sound and feel. Try them and I bet you’ll keep them.
My #1 suggestion is to get your hands on them before you buy. Either at your local golf store or take advantage of Global Golf’s Utry trial program. I use it and recommend it.
