This reminds me of a similar random pairing some 15+ years ago.  I went to a local course on a Friday, on my way in to work, was paired with two gents who were dressed in t-shirts and gym shorts, the clothing looked to have been worn on several construction projects.  Paint, drywall mud, putty, couple small holes, all sorts of fun.

They turned out to be some of the most courteous golfers I've played with.  Very polite, observant of all of the proprieties on the course and greens, which most wouldn't expect, based on their appearance.  And, they could play a bit; both had good swings and good putting strokes.

Definitely ranks on my random pairing experiences.  Obviously, since I remember it some 15 years later.

Apologies for the minor threadjack, you hit a memory trigger.

Yeah. You really can’t judge on looks, especually when it comes to golf. 
 

Last week i went out a a single to a local course—not where i work.  2 young gus in their 20’s and a other guy about my age in a single cart.  As i pulled up last it wasnt obvious to me he was with them. 
 

The young guys went ro tbe blues (6600) and teed off, and hit great driives if about 270.  After they were done i asked Ken—if he was going to play the whites (6300) or Golds (5900) that were  about 30 yards ahead. 
 

Be said “ah they make me play back here with them.  I respect for their elders”. The. Proceeded to hit the prettiest draw down the right center and lamded 5 yards in front of both of them in the fairway.  I felt embarrassed for my question.  And said. “Hell, Id make you play thr blacks”. Lol.  
 

i hit from the gold on that hole and was 2 yards in front of Ken 🥺

All three if them broke 40 for the front, they were very good players but more importantly very fun to play with   All three very kind snd complimented my good shots...as few ss they were   Ha

And we’re off!   Thanks so much to MGS and Wilson for selecting me to be a part of this test.   I do check the boxes for this one, older guy, lower handicap but handicap up some from peak season

First and as always, big appreciation to MGS for hosting the best golf forums on the internet. And a big shout out to Wilson Golf for getting involved.  I am really excited to put these clubs int

Let's get this party started! HUGE thanks to MGS and Wilson for this opportunity. This is my first-ever MGS review and I'm pretty anxious because I get so much value out of this site that I don't want

Just getting up to speed on this thread. A great group of testers, for sure.

I gamed the Wilson C300s last year, and besides a few QC issues with the medallions falling off, I really liked the clubs. I couldn't tell from the pictures on the Wilson site, do the longer irons have power holes on the top or is the forged all "normal" topline with just the power holes on the bottom?

Absolutely love the brand recognition and history with Wilson, and they make some fabulous, but underrated clubs. Hope they have another winner on their hands here.

Enjoy the testing opportunity!

Will be able to give you a more definitive answer in a couple days 🤞 but it doesn't appear to have 'power holes' on the topline, just on the sole. I'll be getting 3-PW, so if there was an iron that was going to have them, it'd be the 3i!

HEYYYYY YOUUUUU GUYSSSSSSS

While sneaking in an early morning round, I got a really interesting email just a little after making the turn:

1017821059_Screenshot_2020-09-13UPSUpdateParcelScheduledforDeliveryTomorrow-greggarner87gmailcom-Gmail.png.080ffd35a4fdf96f6e719769a2fd3a00.png

 

HOLY COW am I excited. My current gamers, however, might already be getting a little jealous. I played absolutely horrible on the front hitting only 2 GiR with a pair of double-bogies. I read this email to them and I proceeded to do this:

 

1114509541_Screenshot_2020-09-13ArccosGolfDashboardMyRounds.png.920ea15ddfb594411e87f68bde81a65b.png

 

Y'all. That is setting the bar pretty dang high. That's my lowest 9-hole score ever. My irons were absolutely electric and as you can see, I hit all 9 GiR and 3 of them were inside 10'.

Your move, Wilson! But something tells me they're up for the challenge. 😏

Nice nine!! Thats some pretty lofty numbers for the D7 Foeged to go after

Alright! Let the games begin!

Somehow, I managed to finish the workday without absconding to the driving range. But I did unbox these just as soon as they made it through the door. When I found out I was selected for this review, of course I then spent days reading every review, watching every YouTube video, and closely examining the specs. Unboxing them, however, revealed a profile more compact, more solid-looking than the images I had seen to date. I snapped a few side-by-sides with my Ping i210s, which I've always thought were a fairly compact Players Cavity. My Pings are not blades, of course, but my previous set of irons were Ping i5s and the i210s are much cleaner. But the Wilson's? Aesthetically they are definitely holding their own.

20200914_193102.jpg.78e1baffce54e090869362f7ecf39f88.jpg

Without seeing them side-by-side, I expected a wider sole and the shiny chrome exacerbates this effect, but they're not as wide as I thought they would be. Oh, and while this is probably not news to anyone else, I wasn't sure if the 'power holes' on the sole was actually a hole or not. (Really, my concern was whether or not I was going to have to dig dirt out of there... Spoiler: they're not holes.) However, as you can tell, the D7 soles are really comparable to my i210s. I think the i210s hide the sole width by having a thinner body where the D7 looks quite a bit beefier coming up the back of the iron. The hosel of the i210 is also a little longer, which I think makes it look thinner. I don't want to over-generalize, but the Ping looks like a Ping (especially in the pointier toe shape) and the D7 looks like a classic iron with some nods and winks to just how much tech is back there.

20200914_190551.jpg.67918a0da239d4eaea52631adb58172e.jpg 20200914_190727.jpg.01ac5573aa7541d212548d9457680a98.jpg

I spent the most time this evening looking at the 3-irons side-by-side. I knew the D7s had just a little less offset than the Pings but I think the Pings' 'notch' in the slightly-longer hosel plus the shaping of the heel as it comes into the neck makes it look significantly different than the D7. The toplines are very similar, though I can see a little more of the backside on the D7 whereas the i210 has done a little better job with the 'butter knife' look. Side-by-side, I immediately think the D7 is a great extension of the shorter irons while still maintaining its own identity while the i210 is sorta like a stretched-out version of the shorter irons. And I can't place it, but the aesthetics alone make me think the D7 just has more punch.

20200914_191348.jpg.92d3bc13a7abc0337992f5f87301b6e5.jpg20200914_191239.jpg.18b254b342c31b39293f85d42705603d.jpg

So now I've downloaded some baseline data from Arccos, swapped out my sensors, and hope to make it out to the course here in the next few days, weather and work permitting.

20200914_190827.jpg.cce44b44c6424c6bf26524904525c0ca.jpg

Great call on the early comparison!  This just settled the thought in my mind that chrome/mirror finish is one of the things that just belongs on irons

Oh! Interesting! No Power Holes on the gap wedge? (I mean, I don't know why you'd need more power on a gap wedge, but I would've thought the same for the PW, which does have them.)

Yeah, I was planning on digging into that a little.  I believe that the power holes are there to allow the face to flex a bit more, and I'm wondering why Wilson decided that the gap wedge didn't need the extra face flex.

After watching the UPS truck drive circles around my house for 4 hours yesterday my new set of Wilson D7 Forged irons arrived! Sadly, they didn't get in until the rain came and the light faded. 
But it gave me time to inspect them and get ShotScope tags installed and ready for today.
