This came across the InBox this morning from Srixon/Cleveland - it's an interesting take on Utility Irons. We tend to think of them as driving irons, but Srixon appears to be taking a different approach - one similar to PING with its Crossover clubs and Hogan with its Ft. Worth 15 hi irons.... SRIXON UTILITY IRONS ARE DOMINATING ON THE PGA TOUR Srixon was the most used brand of utility iron at the Safeway Open, with 10 in play. At the CIMB Classic, both Anirban Lahiri (T3) and Keegan Bradley (6) had a Srixon Z U45 utility iron in the bag (specs below). Our staffers and those outside our staff praise the Z U45 and Z U65 for their incredible feel coupled with phenomenal trajectory and distance control . TECHNICAL NOTE: Our tour reps have found the most success with these clubs when building them as an extension of the iron set. Essentially, they are built to match the specs of the irons â€“ same weight, same shaft, and in line with iron set length. They have seen this recipe work over and over. In building them to iron specs, you essentially create a club that gives you the benefits of a hybrid (easier to hit, easier to get up and land soft), but you have the consistency and predictability of an iron. The last thing a tour player wants with a club he uses to approach greens is a club that produces an unpredictable distance or trajectory. When built to iron specs you get a club that players can flight up or down when needed, that goes the correct distance every time and is overall easier to hit than a long iron. All the while, because it is forged and cosmetically looks great address, it stays right in line with their iron sets from a look and feel standpoint. These utility irons aren't your seasonal driving irons, either â€“ once they go in play, they tend to stay there. Long hitters may manipulate the top of their bag depending on a course, but mostly they stay. It is very rare to find a hybrid or driving iron type club that is easy to hit on multiple trajectories, hit a consistent number, and not have a left bias (for right-handers). This club is all of these! Cool Fact: When Will McGirt and Jon Curran were in The Memorial playoff earlier this year, there were 4 Srixon Z U45 utilities in play! Anirban Lahiri: Srixon Z U45 3 utility iron, 20Â° (bent to 21Â°), with Nippon N.S. Pro Modus3 Tour 120 X flex shaft Keegan Bradley: Srixon Z U45 2 utility iron, 18Â° (bent to 19Â°), with Nippon N.S. Pro Modus3 Tour 125 X flex shaft Srixon Z U45 3 utility iron, 20Â° (bent to 22Â°), with Nippon N.S. Pro Modus3 Tour 125 X flex shaft These will definitely be on the table when we visit Srixon in November!! Thoughts on the use of Utility irons? Strictly a driving iron in your view or can these be a versatile alternative to hybrids, especially for those of us who can hook them off them planet? For me, Utility Irons are always an acid test for how well I'm swinging at any given point in time. When I'm hitting them flush from the fairway or rough, I know my game's in good shape. When I'm not, well....
