X Hot

Consistency 

 

I've played Callaway irons ever since a fitting at Callaway's headquarters in Carlsbad years ago.  I've owned Big Berthas, X-18s and X-22s before my X Hots and would love to test the Steelhead XRs.  I'm retired, live on a golf course, and play 4X / week year round, so they would get an extensive test.

John 

New York ( Albany area)

Handicap- 5.7

Mizuno 850 forged

Greatest Strength -  Iron distance control and accuracy

Greatest Weakness-  60 years old and driver swing speed has declined from 105 to 100.

As a result I am begining to fight distance and trajectory issues so technology and shaft selection have moved to the forefront of my thought process.
