The 2012 PGA Tour season may be winding down, but that doesn't mean the Titleist R&D team is taking a break from designing the best performing products for the world’s best players.

Meet the new prototype Titleist 712U utility iron, which has been designed to deliver consistency and control to high-ball speed players.

On the worldwide professional tours, some players prefer a utility iron over a hybrid club as an alternative to traditional long irons. The 712U delivers increased playability versus a traditional long iron while providing enhanced spin and trajectory control versus a hybrid.

The prototype 712U is being sent to players this week for performance validation and feedback. We will also be on the range at the season ending PGA Tour Fall Series event at Disney in early November working with Titleist staff players.

The 712U is currently a Tour-only product, but the feedback we receive during this validation period will influence the final design and specifications, as well as determine the product's place in the Titleist club line-up.

Before the new prototypes headed out, we grabbed some photos of them in our Tour workshop. Be sure to check out the slideshow to get a first look at the prototype Titleist 712U utility irons.

Hopefully it makes it to retail and it is offered in LH! It would be a nice setup for firm and windy conditions
