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).

Congrats Josh, that's quite the awesome round!

Dang! That's CRAZY! Congrats! Puts to bed all of the thoughts that only “high handicappers” should play these.

It was no 60 that's for sure but I did manage to get around in -3 69. I was extremely happy to be under par after a great round.

 

Today is our couples club championship so another test for them this afternoon.

So playing with GI or SGI irons is not always a negative for low single digit golfers?   I have really enjoyed your review with the G700 irons and how they can perform equally well for low or high handicappers.   Great job!

We had our couples club championship yesterday. My wife and I successfully defended our title. I shot a bogey free 67. We both naturally birdied our 7th hole and she made some very nice pars to help our net score. The G700 irons were on again as I played the par 5's in -4. The putter was not as hot yesterday but still a very good round.

Tomorrow I have my US Mid Amateur qualifier. It's on a course I have never seen. This will be a very good test.

Is there specific timing on when stage 2s will come out? The teasers from JA has definitely piqued my interest and after hitting these on a launch monitor twice I am waiting for any reason not to make the upgrade.

With irons, Stage 2 is typically 4 to 6 weeks after Stage 1's.  it is a more in-depth extensive time on the range and course with them, than opposed to play 2 rounds and give us your thoughts.  We like to make sure the "honeymoon" stage has passed and the testers have a true feel as to how the irons will or won't work for their games. 

 

However, feel to ask JA or any of the testers, any specific questions you may have. Granted they want to hold the bulk of the info for the stage 2 part, but they may have some little nuggets they can help answer any questions with.

Today I extended my par or better streak to 61 holes. Then I lost a ball and made a double bogey.

 

My round today was frustrating to say the least. This was a qualifier for the US Mid Amateur and at a course I have never played. It was 72* with rain and 20 mph winds. Not a nice day here in Central Illinois. I ended up shooting a 75 (+4). I hit 7/13 fairways, 14/18 greens and had 35 putts. Obviously my irons were not the issue. I hit these irons very well. I had one fairway bunker shot and I hit that to 15'. Played the par 3's in even par. I could flight them down into the wind and let them go down wind. I was very pleased with this.

 

My putter I was not happy with. The greens were unusually slow and I never have liked slow greens. I still should be able to adjust.

 

Back to the irons. 15 pars, and 14 greens in regulation in competition are exactly where I need to be.

Do you ever miss your Srixons?

Do you find the offset hard to adjust to in the Pings?

 

I would happily say you're a better golfer than I am. I currently play 765s 4-6 and 965s down.

Blades were a conscious choice for me, I'm a recent starter and self taught so I wanted something that made me have to become a goif ball striker quickly.

 

Like you, it's the long irons I occasionally struggle with, but the feel of the Srixons, especially the 965s, is beautiful and they're gorgeous to look at.

Proud owner of a slowly approaching complete archive of Titleist's blades circa 2000-2014 and a Wilson FatShaft CI10 blade putter in perfect condition (seriously, try Googling it and look at the state of the few that show up) which I bought when at college and just happens to look like it's stamped with my daughter's name, born 14 years after I bought it...

The Srixons are very nice. I have played blades and cavity back irons for over 15 years never looking at game improvement irons. Yes the G700 are larger and more offset but I hit them so much higher and they are so much more forgiving.

 

I have some stats that I believe will be very eye opening come Stage 2.

I'd bag a set of ping pong paddles on a stick if I knew they provided optimum forgiveness.   I love forgiveness and the more the better.
