Titleist Introduces U-Series Utility Irons PDF Print E-mail

 

 

FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (July 15, 2019) – The new Titleist U-Series utility irons

offer two unique models – U•500 and U•510 – designed to expand a player’s

shot options at the top end of the bag. Called “utility irons” for a reason, the

new U•500 and U•510 models produce more distance than a standard iron

and less spin than a hybrid – delivering that one shot a golfer needs precisely

when it’s needed.

324018 titleist useries 2 crop fd6d91 large 1562939855

Available for fittings beginning Aug. 8 (and in golf shops Aug. 30),

Titleist U-Series utilities combine forged L-face technology with extreme

amounts of high-density tungsten to deliver higher launch and faster ball

speeds for game-changing long iron performance:

• The U•500 is the player’s utility iron designed for superior shot making.

The extremely versatile, low loft utility features a compact shape that

delivers high launch with a soft landing and precise distance control.

• The U•510 provides hybrid-like performance in a forgiving, muscular

iron shape. The high-launching, easier-playing utility offers a larger, wide-

sole design for consistent shot-after-shot performance. U•510 creates such

a powerful combination of distance, launch and forgiveness that Titleist

engineers were able to create a 16-degree 1-iron that is very playable

from both the tee and turf.

Already the most played utility irons on the PGA Tour – and in the bags of

Adam ScottJordan Spieth and Jimmy Walker – the new U-Series will

be prominently on display this week at the Open Championship, where U•500

and U•510 will be the #1 utilities in play at Royal Portrush. Bernd Wiesberger,

winner of last week’s Scottish Open, played a U•500 3-iron.

“There are a lot of golfers out there who don’t want to play a hybrid, but

are still searching for that kind of performance at the long end of their iron

set,” said Josh Talge, Vice President, Titleist Golf Clubs. “They want to be

able to launch it higher and farther, they want to be able to shape shots,

they want to be able to land it close to the hole – they just want to do it

with an iron in their hands. Everything that went into U•500 and U•510

was geared towards giving these golfers the performance, look and feel

they’ve always hoped for in a long iron, and maybe didn’t think was

possible.”

FREE TRIAL & FITTINGS

Beginning Aug. 8, golfers can experience the launch and speed of U-Series

utilities by attending a Titleist Fitting and Trial event (including Titleist

Thursdays) being held at hundreds of locations nationwide. To find an event,

or book a free fitting with a Titleist Product Specialist, golfers should visit

www.titleist.com/events​.

U•500 TECHNOLOGY & PERFORMANCE

The U•500 is a highly technical utility iron with a compact shape that

delivers versatility, speed and precision distance.

 

Strategic High Density Tungsten Weighting (98 grams on average)

produces a low CG for increased launch with trajectory control, and a high

MOI for balance and stability through the shot.

 

Our thinnest, Forged SUP-10 L-Face insert maximizes ball speed for more

distance.

Player's shape provides shot-shaping confidence at address.

Loft options 2i (17), 3i (20), 4i (23)

 

U•500 is the incredibly versatile utility iron that tour players have been

asking us for,” said Marni Ines, Director of Iron Development, Titleist Golf

Club R&D. “It shares a similar size and shape to our prior generation T-MB

iron, but has been completely reimagined to give players specialized long

iron performance. It’s faster, launches higher, lands softer, and feels better

through impact. As you go up in the set and down in loft, everyone eventually

can use help with launch. But from what we’re seeing on tour, it’s a club that

can be hit almost as high as you want or as low as you want, and players are

really gravitating toward that versatility.”

U•510 TECHNOLOGY & PERFORMANCE

The U•510 is a muscular, wide-soled utility iron that provides hybrid-like

performance with incredible forgiveness.

 

Larger more forgiving blade features awide sole that promotes easy

launch from the tee or turf.

 

Strategic High Density Tungsten Weighting (95 grams on average)

produces a low and deep CG for maximum launch with shot-stopping

control, and a high MOI for stability and forgiveness. A forged SUP-10

L-Face Insert maximizes ball speed for more distances.

 

Loft Options: 1i (16), 2i (18), 3i (20), 4i (22)

  • Loft Options: 1I (16º), 2I (18º), 3I (20º), 4I (22º)

“U•510 is the launch king,” Ines said. “The larger shape and

wide sole allowed us to place the tungsten weighting so that

the CG is lower and further back than any iron we’ve developed

– and what that translates into is a lot of launch angle. The ball

just gets up and out and goes. It’s a very stable and forgiving

golf club, but it’s got that extra forgiveness in terms of launch.

During our consumer testing, golfers couldn’t believe the shots

they were hitting with a 1-iron or 2-iron – they would just turn

around and smile.”

 

STOCK GRAPHITE SHAFT

The stock setups for U-Series U•500 and U•510 models feature a

graphite HZRDUS Smoke Black 90 (mid-low launch, low spin)

shaft at +0.25”. Graphite shafts in utility irons continue to grow in

popularity on the PGA Tour as they allow for more speed and launch,

enhancing the performance of the utility.

Every stock hybrid and iron shaft (steel and graphite) in the Titleist

matrix – including the shafts soon to be offered on the new Titleist

TS hybrids and T-Series irons – is also available for custom order at

no upcharge, offering players a multitude of options to dial in their

performance.

AVAILABILITY

Titleist U-Series U•500 and U510 utility irons will be available worldwide

on Aug. 30, 2019, at Titleist authorized golf shops. MAP $250.
