There are many golf iron sets out there, each with its own set of pros and cons.
- Some (and there are a lot in the golf industry such as old irons, new irons, long irons, short irons, players irons, and tour irons) are best suited for beginners, being very forgiving and easy to handle.
- Others though require more experience, not compromising in design and strength to provide the most launch and distance to those who know how to use them.
If you fall into the latter category, it can be quite confusing to know the difference, especially with all the new irons out there.
The golfing world, and golfing products by extension, comes with a lot of internal jargon that might scare away anyone looking to start but unsure of how to approach. Is this truly the best iron? Luckily, we’re here to help!

Why Listen to Me?
My name is Linda Parker, my mom was an LPGA pro before my parents met, and I’ve been around golf and the PGA tour since before I could walk.
I grew up playing with Titleist golf clubs, and I’ve been obsessed with golf ever since I can remember, and have had a great deal of experience with different golf clubs and manufacturers.
When it comes to T100 irons, I believe that they are some of the best out there- especially for those who know how to use them properly. They aren’t the newest model on the market, but they’re still incredibly popular for a reason.
In this particular review, my friend and Golf partner Tim will be helping me go over the features, pros, and cons of the T100 Irons.
Is it a beginner-friendly set or is it something more suited for a player with a little more experience?
Read on and let’s find out together!
Titleist T100 Irons Features:
Let’s take a look at some of the T100s’ more notable features!
The tour iron design of the T100 Irons eliminates weld points and is even more precise with CG placement. All of this provides a seamless striking surface and a more uniform edge.
The innovation in design is evident in the way the club looks- it’s beautiful and modern, while still maintaining the feeling of a classic golf club.

The T100s utilize denser D18 tungsten weights and a 2000°F brazing process used in aerospace construction. This results in a forged-like feel with incredible precision and solidity at impact.
Player Performance Model Category
Golf irons are categorized by the benefits they afford the user, in this case the T100 irons offer:
- Player Distance which is for players looking for distance. In fact, Titleist say that its Tour players have raved about how quick the irons feel through the turf, stating is has excellent turf interaction as well as the versatility of the irons from a variety of different lies.
- This club is definitely a player’s iron, with minimal offset, a thin top line, and a compact blade length. All of these factors promote workability, and the player’s ability to shape shots.
Compact Head Shape
This club features a compact head shape means the Titleist Irons are ideal for mid to high-handicap range players.
As the head shape is more compact, it provides a smaller sweet spot. On the other hand, the head shape also provides more precision and control for mid to high-handicap range players.
Complete Set Makeup

Purchase of the T100 set pretty much gets you all the numbers you need.
Workable Overall Forgiveness
Forgiveness refers to a club that delivers adequate distance and accuracy on poorly struck shots. The Titleist T100 Irons are made for golfing pros or athletes. Thus, they might be less forgiving than other brands.
More Uniform Leading Edge
According to Titlist, the T100s feature a continuous face construction that creates a seamless striking area and uniform leading edge for greater consistency
Titleist T100 Handicap Range
For those not in the know, a golf handicap is a numerical measure of a golfer’s potential that is used to enable players of different abilities to compete against one another, without giving a major advantage to the more experienced player(s)!
So what is the Titleist T100 Irons handicap range?
The Range of the Titleist T100 Irons is between 10 and 19, which makes it ideal for mid to high-handicap range players.
What We Experienced Using The Titleist T100 Irons:
It’s Best Suited For “Better Players”
Tim not only absolutely loved these irons, but I did as well. The design of this particular set of irons is one of its biggest selling points.
With D18 density tungsten weighting, a new Tour-contoured sole, and a brushed chrome finish, the T100s come with all the bells and whistles to provide you with the best performance possible.
It also goes a long way to making one pretty handsome set, sure to be the envy of your golf club.
Used By The Pros
The T100 irons, which have been played by more tour professionals than any other iron in the world, found their way into Jordan Spieth’s bag at The Open Championship, where he finished second, providing a solid start to Titleist’s most popular model.
These Golf Clubs Are NOT A Forgiving Set (Beginners Beware)
A drawback of this club, obviously, it’s not beginner-friendly.
It’s important to note though that, with professional gear such as this, forgiveness comes low in the maker’s list of priorities.
It is already assumed that the user of the T100 has built some muscle memory and experience over years of playing.
To put it simply, the Titleist T100 is not a forgiving set because its effectiveness is expressed in the ability of the user.
Pros & Cons of the T100 Irons Set
- Favored By Pros. Jordan Spieth, Will Zalatoris, Max Homa, Lanto Griffin, and Cameron Smith are just some of the professional golfers who use the Titleist T100. If you’re looking to go pro using the tame gears the more established golfers use, then the T100 is a good place to start.
- Crafted With Aerospace Technology.Made from the same material used in planes, its seamless surface, and aerodynamic design are reasons enough to purchase.
- A Great Purchase For Golfers With High Handicap Range. If you’ve been playing for some time and are looking for an extra element to elevate your play, then you can’t go wrong with the T100 Irons. It’s just that simple.
While there is a lot to like about the T100 irons, there are a few things that we didn’t love.
- Low Forgiveness. As stated above, this set of irons was not crafted to be forgiving. Maybe the only negative comment we have about the T100s is, beginners will definitely notice its lower levels of forgiveness. If you want a golf club that does some of the work for you, then the Titleist T100 Irons might not be ideal. Essentially, the irons can be difficult to control if you’re not an experienced golfer.
- Not Ideal For Beginners. The very thin topline is often too intimidating for some low handicappers seeking extra distance. Some experience might be needed before using this particular set.
- They’re Not Cheap. The price point is quite high, which may not be affordable for everyone. Overall, these are minor complaints in comparison to all of the great features that the T100 irons have to offer!
Review & Final Verdict (4.5/5)
And that was our review of the Titleist T100 Irons.
The bottom line for this iron set is that it works great in the hands of someone who knows how to use them.
In the hands of a beginner, it might be a little too hard to use.
Overall, the T100 irons are an excellent choice for experienced golfers who are looking for clubs that will help them improve their game.
The irons offer a premium forged feel, consistent distances with every shot, and improved forgiveness, making them a great option for anyone in the market for a new set of irons.
If you’re an experienced golfer who is looking for an upgrade, the T100 irons should definitely be at the top of your list!!
