Titleist debuts all-new U500, U510 Utility Irons
The new Titleist U Series utility irons offer two unique models – U500 and U510 – designed to expand a player’s shot options at the top end of the bag.
Called “utility irons” for a reason, the new U500 and U510 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.
Available for fittings from mid-August and available at retail from August 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 U500 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 U500 is available in 2I (17º), 3I (20º), 4I (23º) options.
The U510 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.

U510 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. The U510 is available in 1I (16º), 2I (18º), 3I (20º), 4I (22º) options.
“U510 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.”
Already the most played utility irons on the PGA Tour – and in the bags of Adam Scott, Jordan Spieth and Jimmy Walker – the new U Series utilities will be prominently on display this week at the Open Championship, where U500 and U510 will be the #1 utility iron models in play at Royal Portrush.
The stock setups for U Series U500 and U510 models feature a graphite HZRDUS Smoke Black 90 (mid-low launch, low spin) shaft at +0.25”.
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.
Titleist U Series U500 and U510 utility irons will be available worldwide on Aug. 30, 2019, at Titleist authorised golf shops with a suggested retail price of A$379 (NZD$429).
