Gear head alert. Titleist has released some photos of their prototype irons for 2012, the 712 series. They are “seeding” them to players for a “tour validation analysis” this week at the AT&T National at Aronomink Golf Club. I’ve snagged a few shots of some of these fine looking clubs and thrown them in the Hooked On Golf Blog Titleist image gallery. Click the image here to see the rest of them, including the new Titleist 712 CB, MB, AP1 and AP2 irons.
Ever wonder why Titleist names all of their irons with a number like “712″ CB etc? The “7″ means irons, and the next two digits are the year. So 712 means “irons from 2012.”
