Is there a dominant iron on the PGA tour


Recommended Posts

Is it a free for all among the iron brands or is there a leader?  Years ago, Ping Eye 2, Ping Zing, Zing 2 were dominant.  More recently, Callaway Apex?  Titleist is often #1, right?   Does anybody know now if there is an iron in use by at least 25% of PGA Tour?  I am just curious, I am not going to chase.  I like my Ping I 500.  But I would trade them in for old Ping Eye if I could stay injury free for 2 years.

Framed another way, which iron dominates among players who are not under contract...

You'd likely see a lot of the JPX Mizuno line as well as the newer Srixon ZX-7 line.

When Nike went out of business, several of their players went agnostic and played the ridiculously good JPX 900's.

  • Vokey SM8 50, SM9 54 & 60  Nippon Modus 3 120s
