Recommended Posts

Played in our league last night. Shot 33 (-3). 7/9 GIR. No bogies. I'm getting the hang of these irons. Second bogey free round with them in competition although last night was only 9 holes.

So another week has gone by and needless to say these irons are starting to grow on me. Last night I shot my best round EVER! I tied our course record (although from the white tees) with a 60 (-12).

I will say that now that it has been mentioned, I am more and more conscious of the struggle to rip balls out of the rough with these. That may end up being the one drawback that gets highlighted in my Stage 2.

 

But the flipside: when they're working correctly, I avoid the rough more often :)

Same thing with my Cleveland HB irons.   The thick bermuda in Georgia grabs at your irons and especially those that have a big butt.

Question for you Testers, did any of you use or try the G400 irons? If you did is there any improvement/advantage with the G700's?

Thanks, I'm playing G400's now and very interested.

I did. They are pretty similar, but the G700s are a little longer. I did use different shafts, so that may have skewed the results slightly. The G400s sound and feel better.

So another week has gone by and needless to say these irons are starting to grow on me. Last night I shot my best round EVER! I tied our course record (although from the white tees) with a 60 (-12). My previous best was a 61(-9). So now I have 2 course records to my name!

 

attachicon.gif IMG_8156.JPG

 

I can't believe how these irons fly. I played the par 3's (-3) the par 5's (-4). I hit the long irons so high. This helps me so much into par 5's and even on the par 3's. Yes the putter was on fire. But these irons were as well. Anytime you put together a round like that everything has to be working and it was. I'm not going to lie as I thought rounds like this were behind me.

Shot of the day on the par 3 8th hole. G700 PW 148yds.

 

I have our couples club championship Sunday and the US Mid Amateur qualifier on Tuesday. I need to keep the positive thoughts flowing.

I haven't hit them out of the rough very often (driver has been working) but I had to gouge out of some thickish stuff twice in my first round with them. Both times the ball came out clean with a high and what felt and looked like lo wish spin. Both landed softly and stopped better than expected on the green. Both times I hit 8 iron, and I would be unlikely to attempt anything with less loft from those sort of lies. I'll try to get some pics of our current rough.

 

I planned to play a few practice holes after work this week, but a combination of being flat out at work and crook didn't let it happen.

 

Translation from Aus:

Flat out : very busy

Crook : unwell

 

Didn't want people to be scratching their heads like I do reading OG's posts

First, congrats again to Josh—what a round!

 

I posted this over the milestone thread, but it's worth cross-posting here: these irons also carried me to my personal best (about a stroke-a-hole worse than Josh's  :o): https://forum.mygolfspy.com/topic/20309-first-time-breaking-a-milestone/?p=453472

 

Game Golf tells me that in my last three rounds, I've been hitting my approach shots like a low-single-figure handicapper. In the round in which I first broke 80, my approach game was better than scratch.

 

At this point, I have an incredible amount of confidence with my iron play. And I'm finding that the more confidently I swing them, the more they reward me. I'm looking forward to writing me full Stage 2, but I think it's pretty obvious which direction I'm headed with my conclusion.
