weakness - staying on line

RBZ 10.5* driver

DTG Turner H-1 4/5/7 woods

My swing speed is on the cusp, stiff flex driver, working down to a regular flex in the irons.

17, down from 19. Yay!

Callaway X-20's

Strength in irons are shorter clubs 7 - PW. Distance is decent and hit them fairly straight. Good spin.

Weakness in irons are longer clubs 3 - 6. Trouble getting good distance and tend to slice a little.

First name: Eric

Home state/province: New York

Current handicap: 10

Current iron set: Tommy Armour 845 EVO V-31 (reduced offset)

Biggest strength & weakness to my iron game: Strength = consistency and solid contact with short and mid-irons. Weakness = not quite good enough with longer irons (5-iron, 4-iron). Ball flight a little too low and hot, even with solid contact.

Nova Scotia

Hdcp 7.8 factor (course 9)

Titleist ap2 714

Biggest strength?

Pretty consistent draw swing.

Weakness? I moved from TM rsi 2 irons to ap2 714 and I am good with shorter irons but long shots I'm inconsistent and the titleist penalize.

The steelhead sound like the perfect solution hybrid of what I need help with, without an overly bulky look, especially the pro version.

Would go good with my Callaway bag and wedges



Ps after the long brutal Canadian winter courses opening within less than 2 weeks and nothing would shake winter rust like a new set.

Your first name: Blake

Your home state/province: Wisconsin

Your current handicap: 6.4

Your current iron set: Callaway XR Pro

Your biggest strength & weakness to your iron game: My biggest strength is probably my ability to launch and spin the ball. My biggest weakness is that although my distance control is usually solid I occasionally struggle with slightly fat shots. Because of this turf interaction is really important to me in a set of irons.


Thanks for the opportunity!
