I am currently considering trying the Wilson Ci7 - the ones Padraig Harrington used to win the 2008 British Open Championship. Haven't decided if I want to pull the trigger yet, but kind of hard to resist considering the sub $200 price tag on these.

Those Wilsons are a good set of sticks.

 

Got the irons this afternoon. Sadly, not in time for my game with Matt. I struck the ball fairly well today. I was able to par three of the four par 3's and probably should have birdied a couple if my putting was on.

 

So, the Pings were trying to make a strong case to stay in the bag. But, I'm not falling for it. I didn't hit near enough greens in regulation.

well this isn't on the list but i love the mizuno mp 68. they are blades but they have a taller face so more room or error and forgiveness. they also look beautiful.

 

the x 22 tour aren't forged so you don't get that pure feeling. they still have a pretty thick topline.

 

the mp 58 feel pretty much like the 68 but i love that simple look of a blade.

Try everything and get what suits your eye the best, you'll play into them as you go. Get ready for sore hands though........unless you get graph shafts

If you're dropping coin on a set of forged players irons new, I'd say mizuno should be one of the first options. If I, however, were buyig a set and wanted the most well fitted irons for me, and was ordering from an OEM, I'd have to look at Scratch golf. You won't find a better company to fit you in the business. And every set of irons that go out their door are players irons. Not to mention the fit everything, from the sole grind, loft, length, lie, grips, etc and allow you to customize them from paintfill to grips to ferrules. Awesome for buying a fitted set.

 

If you want a fitter that you're not going to find a better fitter and builder, locate Joe Kwok and give him a call or shoot him an email. I'd venture a bet that he can fit someone over the phone better than most can in their shop. He's that good. And his tolerances are more stringent than anyone out there.

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.
