As far as golf equipment goes, no company knows how to appeal to the better player quite as well as Titleist. We see all of the staff bags on professional tours across the globe, but it’s the countless top-tier amateur players that also game Titleist clubs. Oftentimes by choice, not due to a contract agreement. That says something.

In tandem with a completely revamped lineup of T-Series irons, which I previewed here on, Titleist dropped its new U505 and T200 utility irons which appear to be game-changers for the better player. These fresh models replace the previous generation of the U505 and T200 that debuted in 2021 with upgrades in key areas, particularly looks and feel.

First Glance

All of the latest irons launched by Titleist have a consistent look, despite the fact that the T100, T150, T200, and T350 are each intended for different types of players. This duo of utility irons fall right in line with that consistency. They have a player-preferred shape, advanced turf interaction, and look as though they will seamlessly blend the top of your golf bag with other Titleist models.

The U505 has the look of a utility iron that’s consistent with what we see coming from other manufacturers. It has a wider sole, thicker topline at address, and looks as though achieving higher launch would be effortless. For the player that doesn’t want to have a hybrid in the bag, this looks like a great option.

With other new Titleist irons we hear of a new technology called a Variable Bounce Sole. This is also adopted in the U505 as Titleist utilized its Vokey wedge R&D specialists to create a sole that would cut through any lie with precision to produce more accurate shots. A redesigned chassis also allows players to have mishits exposed less and a tighter dispersion rate.

The T200 utility is definitely a step in the smaller direction from its U505 sibling. With a compact design, the player that can maneuver the golf ball and relies on their skillset to flight different shots will be able to game this model.

This model features a dual-taper face, which is tour-inspired and provides the superior feel the world’s best players demand. For the player that chooses to go with all T200 irons in their bag, this utility is an obvious choice to gap the top of their golf bag. However, even if you’re going with one of the other Titleist models it appears that the T200 utility will blend just as easily.

“Both new U505 and new T200 build on the success of their predecessors and feature key refinements in feel and playability,” said Josh Talge, Vice President, Titleist Golf Club Marketing. “With this line, we have created two high-launching, forgiving and fast utility iron options that feel incredible. We have continued to drive performance while also putting a priority on exceptional feel through the strike. Combine that with an ultra-clean look, and you arrive at the new U•505 and T200 models.”
