In honor of Hideki Matsuyama winning the Masters, I played my Srixon Z Forged MB's today and shot a 72 with 3 birdies and 3 bogies. As many of you know I am a big fan of playing the most forgiving irons you can effectively play and for me, Z Forged ain't them. I would guess there were at least 3 or 4 shots that most likely made a difference in my score, but specifically 2 I can relate. There is a 477 yd par 5 dogleg left that is uphill off the tee and has a huge bunker guarding the corner that I cannot carry from my normal tees. But they are giving that tee box a rest and have the Silvers with the Golds reducing the hole to 444 so I can carry the bunker leaving me a 7 or 8 iron after some downhill roll over the bunker. I had a good yardage to a front pin over a deep bunker and hit my Z Forged just a little thin but right on line and caught the lip. I have no doubt at all that my King Tour 7 iron would carry that bunker. (I am gonna be so bummed when they put the Silvers back where they belong) ... I also let the wind bring my soft fade left to right to a back pin location that has a ledge in front of it and caught my Z Forged 6 iron just a little on the toe. I lost both direction and distance landing short of the ridge and rolling up just enough to send it back down the slope with some extra gusto. Again, no doubt whatsoever that the KIng Tours would have landed over the ridge. ... I did not miss the center by much, but enough to effect the shot with no perimeter weight help and both those shots cost me a minimum of one stroke. And for me, that is all the difference between shooting under par or even par. I love pulling out MB's a few times a year because they are very accurate when perfectly struck and just a lot of fun to play but mostly to remind me why I use Players Irons. I consider myself a very good ball striker but not an elite ball striker which is required to get the most out of MB's. These statements are made about my game specifically and not a recommendation against or for others that may enjoy playing MB's all the time. cksurfdude, palvord, Lacassem and 10 others 13 Quote Driver: Aerojet Max 10.5* ...
