In this comparison, we will compare the lofts, lie angle and length specs of the T100 vs T100S irons. We also explain how the loft specs can impact how many other clubs you carry, focusing on wedges and woods specifically.
Spoiler Alert – There is only one key difference between the T100 and the T100S irons. The lofts of the T100S irons are 2 degress stronger, across the board. That is literally the only difference.

What is the difference between Titleist T100 and T100S?
There is only one fundamental difference between the Titleist T100 Irons and the T100S irons. The lofts of the T100S Irons are 2 degrees stronger, across the set. This translates to about half a club of extra distance. Put another way, the T100S 7 iron is more like a 6.5 iron, from a loft perspective.
While this difference is simple enough to understand, the biggest impact is actually on how many wedges and woods you carry. We will now dive into more detail about how the different loft specs can impact which clubs you carry at the top end and the bottom end of your set.
Titleist T100 Wedge and Wood Setup
|Number||Club Name||T100 Bag Setup|
As you can see from the table above, there are 16 clubs that you could carry, but only 14 can actually make it into your bag. To stay within the rules of the game, you need to eliminate 2 clubs from the list above.
To me, the loft of the 4 iron (24°) in the T100 set actually presents a slight club gapping problem. To prevent a big gap from opening up, you basically need to carry a 3 iron and a 5 Wood/hybrid. As a result, you would probably need to drop a wedge from your setup, doing something like this:
Now, before committing to a 3 wedge setup, ask yourself this. How often do you hit your wedges, and how often you hit low lofted clubs into par 4’s and par 5’s? For most players, I think wedges are used far more regularly than low lofted irons/woods/hybrids. As a result, I think the T100S bag setup with 4 wedges is actually preferable for most normal/good/average golfers.
Titleist T100S Wedge and Wood Setup
|Number||Club Name||T100S Bag Setup|
When looking at the loft specs across the full selection of 14 clubs, my view is that the gapping options for the T100S are actually a bit easier to work with.
For instance, I would remove the 3 iron and the 5 wood from the setup, leaving a near-perfect gap in lofts between each club in my bag. If you don’t like hybrids, you could drop the 3 iron and the hybrid from the setup, and opt for a 5 wood instead. This would also achieve a very well-balanced selection of lofts to play with.
In addition, this decision would allow you to carry 4 wedges rather than 3, which is a no-brainer in my opinion. You get an extra weapon to make birdies and save pars. Based on this, I personally would opt for the T100S over the T100 irons.
