Mizuno mp-30 3-p dg x100's

Hitting high draw is a strength but the fade gives me troubles. Lately I've been thinning shots as well.

Name: Jay


State: Michigan


HC: 13


Set: Adams idea pro a12, 4-pw, stiff shafts


Strength: 7 iron down to PW, which is carries of about 135 to 165. Natural shot shape is a draw, but I can bend it both ways if needed with those clubs. I also am a naturally high hitter, so shots don't have a lot of roll out after landing.


Weakness: long irons. Not consistent with the contact, shape or distance once I go past a 7 iron, but especially poor with 5 and below (which is why I don't carry a 3 iron anymore).

Driver: Nike Covert Tour 2.0, Kuro Kage Silver TiNi (S) cut to 44.5" -- Wood: Callaway X-Hot pro 4 Wood 17* stock project x shaft (S) Hybrid: Bridgestone Precept ECU 21* (S) -- Irons: Mizuno 919 Hot Metal Pro KBS C taper (S) -- Wedges: Cleveland RTX 2.0 54*, 58* (W) -- Putter: Odyssey O Works Red #7s 35” -- Bucket List Courses Played: Forest Dunes, The Loop at Forest Dunes Black and Red, All Tree Tops courses, Black Wolf Run, The Irish Course at Whistling Straits
