Introduction: April 1, 2024 

Welcome everyone to the Bringer of Rains petting zoo. While we only have one animal, everyone will have full access to our GOATS. I am extremely excited to have been selected and cannot wait to start testing the Byrdie Golf Design Goat Iron set. I plan on giving everyone a full-access look at how these irons look and perform, and if the Goats can pull off an upcoming team win at the charity scramble. I welcome and encourage every question you may have. I want to be able to provide an answer to any questions you may have.  The one thing I promise is no one in the 2024 MGS testing pool will have more fun than me during their testing process. The first order of business is to throw a party at my friend's golf simulator bar, where I’m having all my friends test these irons out against their current irons. 

When I am not bringing the rain, I go by Chance. I have called beautiful yet expensive San Diego home for the last 13 years, which you can bet means the Goats will be grazing Torrey Pines as often as they can. Before San Diego, I spent 4 years in Austin, Texas, for undergrad, but not at UT, and before that, I called Waterbury, Connecticut, home. Big shoutout to the 203. Go, Huskies!!!!! 

I am 34 years old and get to spend every day with my much better half, Kiwi, who is in fact, from New Zealand. She is the driving force behind me getting out and playing golf. While it sounds sweet, she really only wants me out of the apartment for some peace and quiet. She likes to call me the Golden Retriever. 

Let's get to the interesting part: my self-assessment of my golf game. I currently play a mixed bag of clubs as follows. 

Driver: Triple Diamond Ai smoke 

3 wood: titleist TSR2 

3 hybrid: Taylor-made burner 

4 hybrid: PXG prototype 

5- G: PXG 0311 GEN 2 T  

56: MizunoS5

60: Callaway Jaws 

Putter: Top Flight from Kmart 25 years ago. However, I did have a couple of beers a few weeks ago and preordered a Jailbird. 

Ball: Vice Pro Plus (value too good) 

I started playing golf in Connecticut with my friends, but we never took it seriously or consistently. I would consider myself a COVID golfer because for a year, if I wanted to see my friends and have a couple of beers, golf was the only option. 

Like most Golfers, I stink the majority of the time. I just can’t get that ball to do what I want. It just sits there and refuses to comply—except at the range. It loves going straight at the range. 

My golf buddies would say I am way too hard on myself and that I’m not that bad at golf, but in reality, they just stink more than me. 

With jokes aside, my goal whenever I play is to break 80. I do have the exceptional round where I can trick randoms into thinking I am actually good. Looking at you two guys from Texas here for a wedding when I shot even on Torrey North. I attempted to get an official handicap in 2022, but I was really bad at putting in scores as the rounds usually turned into a 2 v 2 playing for a couple of beers at the end of the round, and the laughter and trash talk were more important than the score. 

I do have a New Year’s resolution to join a local club and get an official handicap, and this BGD GOAT test was the push I needed. I have officially written out the check and filled out the application. While I will focus heavily on the clubs and not myself during testing, if anyone is interested, I will gladly take you on the handicap journey with the GOATS. 

My biggest strength on the golf course is my distance and confidence. I can make any shot. If you need me to carry 300 over a pit of alligators to win the member guest, then I am your guy. My biggest weakness is that I only succeed 10 percent of the time with that shot. I believe layups are for basketball, and I am playing for a good time, not a long time.  

I would consider myself a decent iron player mostly because my drive, while long, can get me in trouble, and I need the irons to bail me out when I hit that pop fly or hard ground ball.  If things are going really well because of my length, I can hopefully keep the long and Mid irons in the bag most of the day.  

I do really love my PXG irons, but I am excited to see if they get regulated of the back of the irons in a couple of months. 

Why am I excited for Byrdie Golf Design Goats and what this test means to me?

As soon as I saw the test come up, I got excited. Do you see how sleek and good-looking those GOAT irons are? I can’t wait to throw them in the bag. Additionally, with the DTC market blowing up and Costco and Takomo proving high-performance irons can be made for half the price, I knew I needed to get my hands on the Goats. Furthermore, the Goat's marketing felt like it was directed right at my demographic. Muscle backs are designed for the weekend warrior. I am going to put that claim to the test with some help from my friends. 

What will be tested and examined?

I will be testing the Goat Irons from Byrdie Golf Design. I am open to all suggestions on how you would like to see these irons tested. In fact, if you’re in the San Diego area and you want to try them, send me a message, and I’ll try to make it happen. 

As for my testing plan, I first want to get them to the simulator and get some numbers, as these clubs are slightly weaker than my current irons. As promised, this will be accompanied by a golf simulator party where multiple skill levels will test their current irons against the Goats. And don’t worry, there will be plenty of videos from that outing. However, I might lose patience and have to get the irons to the course as quickly as possible. Goats belong in the grass and not on the turf. I plan on playing as many rounds as possible, incorporating and testing suggestions the spies have, and I will report back. 

I promise lots of pictures and videos in the future, and I am going to take the easy out and blame Easter weekend for the lack of golf photos. 

I cannot wait to get these clubs in my hands and take everyone on this journey. Bahhhhhhhhhhh. 

I am in the pink

Very Early Impression:

After arriving home from a long weekend family vacation.  I came home to a flock of goats sitting at my doorstep. Here is my immediate reaction photos. While I was disappointed in the plane brown box, my face shows what I really think of the clubs  

The goats will be grazing the grass shortly and a full first impression review will be coming your way shortly. If there any any question don’t be shy and give me a shout.

First Impression: May 20, 2024

I made an immediate unboxing first impression three weeks ago. Since then, I have been able to take the GOATS grazing a few times and wanted to give my first impression, as well as a few fellow golfers who I met on the course who could not help but give me their first impressions after I told them I was testing these clubs for MGS. 

Stranger One: Was initially taken aback by the design of the GOATS. He confessed, 'I am petrified even trying to hit those irons. (The GOATS could be intimidating with their smaller head and thin top line). 

Stranger Two (Grip Fitter): The shaft feels like there is too much flex, and the club looks to be surprisingly offset for a muscle back, but my guess is these clubs cost around $1,500 to $2,000. (The clubs are currently being sold for $550) 

I met Stranger Two at a charity golf scramble. He was there to replace the grips on anyone's clubs for a reduced price. This is rather interesting as he is a professional fitter and put his guess at 3X to 4X the actual cost of the clubs. That's a big WIN for Byrdie Golf Design and the GOAT collection. 

image0.jpeg.08846e141786fdd9ee42dbadc22815d3.jpeg

As this is supposed to be a first impression, I will refrain from going into too much detail until the final review and give you my top five first impression thoughts. 

1. The clubs are absolutely beautiful and impressive in person. They deserve to be in ESPN’s The Body Issue. 

image5.jpeg.b338cc7d111534c79a1fc10d3b748874.jpeg

 

image3.jpeg.8db5e54f0b726d0540d724f6c600631e.jpeg

2. Byrdie Golf Design claims the GOATS were made with the weekend warrior in mind. Insert GIF ( You Sure about that). 

3. The Grips are soft and almost spongy, but they feel premium, and I found out I kind of like a soft grip. 

4. I can only guess that due to the club's smaller profile, I have hit the ball off the toe more frequently. 

5. Based on a few rounds, the GOATS are worth a try at the $550 price tag.

image2.jpeg.ab11da58589cc9f5237006d6cd7e6201.jpeg

Now, for the fun and what I am looking forward to the most, I have rented a simulator for me and all my golf pals to test the clubs against their current gamers. I can't wait to share the results with all the spies.

As a thank you for reading that next three-footer, pick it up; this gimmie is on me.

Byrdie Golf Design Grind Wedges - 2024 Forum Review by @Grip

Intro

My name is Greg O'Connor and I'm excited to do my first product review with MGS and these Grind Wedges just might be the ticket to improve upon my short game and hopefully anyone else's. 

I began golfing in my mid 20's for about ten years, but got away from it for almost 30 years until I retired. I'm a casual fair-weather senior golfer; my flexibility and steadiness aren't what they used to be, but I enjoy every moment of golfing whether it be on the range, course or practice putting green. My spouse and I enjoy playing together and with others in Wisconsin.

20230902_103547.jpg.051e2dde8256975c5c2fdab35708e2d6.jpg

20230902_1348592.jpg.46114ea74c07e5e5e44c56f0f5222fab.jpg

I also enjoy watching golf both on screen and in person. I attended the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am back in 1989 and recently went to the 2019 American Family Championship, the 2020 Ryder Cup and the 43rd U.S. Senior Open.

20240328_091649.jpg.894158fa0a1b2bbfeb2d0873ddd42fe6.jpg

My biggest weakness is my short game. I currently am using a Cleveland CBX2 54 degree Wedge and a Callaway Mack Daddy CB 60 degree Wedge both with Accra 50i V2 shafts that I was fitted for at Club Champion. They both work well enough for me but I believe I need an in between degree wedge like a 52, 56 or a 58 because sometimes one or the other is too lofty or not enough depending on the distance, lie and slope of the area the ball is.

I normally don't wear a glove with 8 iron or below as I like to feel the impact through my fingers and hands, but during this test I will have my Red Rooster MyGolfspy glove both on and off to get to know these Gun Metal Gray Grind Wedges that come in 52, 56 and 60 degree increments with stiff shafts. Per their website, "The combination of spin, distance, control and bounce is unmatched." I plan to also use them on the range both on the matt, on the turf, in the sand and wedge putting the ball to see how they perform up against the tall fringe of the green. The best test for these will be on the golf course for which I plan on using them exclusively and hopefully add one or all of them to my bag.

Unboxing/First Impressions Link

On-Course (17 out of 20)

I played three nine rounds of golf with these Byrdie Design Grind Wedges. During the first round I wasn't able to try any bunker shots with any  of the Byrdie Design Grind Wedges, because the traps were all full of water and or debris from recent storms. I did not keep score on any round because the conditions on the local courses weren’t optimal for any favorable scores to occur...even the greens still had aeration holes in them.  


20240522_131651.jpg.f95add598cce5d16cf084ac18901e882.jpg


I was able to to do multiple approach shots with each of them from various yardages and am pleased with the results. On one shot I was 58 yards away from the pin and a 52 degree wedge chip shot hit the flag stick and dropped beside the cup. Also, each wedge had good spin control.  During the second round, on the same course, I had similar results as as the previous round along with bunkers full of water and debris from a recent storm. During the final round, at another course, I was able to use the sand wedge out of dry bunkers. I was impressed with how the 56 degree wedge drives  through the sand and lofts the ball in the directions I was aiming over and over. The gap wedge and lob wedge also did well out of the sand as I took every opportunity to land in fairway or green-side bunkers. I’ve become very confident with the gap wedge whether it be on the fairway, in the rough(s) or bunkers. The sand wedge works well, but then again I’m not the best bunker player. I have a lob wedge and like it better than the Byrdie’s as I’m use to it plus all my shafts are a quarter inch longer than standard length. My confidence in my short game has improved with the gap wedge as I know that when I strike the ball the balls trajectory goes where I intended it to go. The OEM should offer at the very least different grip sizes because one size does not fit all. Once the test is done I’m definitely changing grips because they are too small for me. I may also, at some point, get longer shafts, or extensions put on. 

The Good, the bad, the in-between (17 out of 20)

These are fairly well made casted clubs and the first casted set I’ve ever tried. The finish on all three clubs are wearing off a bit; in the grooves, on the sole and the on the leading edge. I’ve only had these grinds a little over a month and my CBX2 and Mack Daddy CB wedges are in similar shape after three years of use (in my humble opinion). The OEM should consider another type of finish type to make their appearance endure a bit longer.

Play it or Trade It? (17 out of 20)

The gap wedge and sand wedge will stay in my bag because they do perform well. The lob wedge will be used off and on as I do prefer the Mack Daddy CB over the Byrdie. When I was selected to review these wedges, they were listed at $180 for the set. Currently, these wedges are listed for $225 for the set; discounted from $299. You can also purchase them individually for $100. The beginning price seems more appropriate versus the latter. The grinds are not necessarily a beginners set but I can see someone, not unlike myself, who recently got back into golfing purchasing them to get back into grinding on the course.

Conclusion 

If you’re looking for a set of wedges that can perform, these Byrdie Design Golf Grind Wedges may be the ticket. The grinds are not forgiving wedges as focus is paramount upon impacting the sweet spot because heel or toe impacts will not have a favorable trajectory or dispersion outcome. The finish appears to wear off rather quickly as in comparison to other club finishes but that doesn’t appear to impact their performance. Give them a try if you’re looking to improve your short game.    

Final Score (84 out of 100)

Testers Announced!

It can be hard to keep track of all the new brands being introduced into the golfing market. Equally, it is very difficult for those same brands to get noticed. For this testers wanted opportunity, we are introducing Byrdie Golf Design, a company focused more on building golf clubs for a community of golfers looking to enjoy the sport without spending a fortune.

Byrdie Golf Design Clubs

We have a unique testing opportunity with Byrdie Golf Design where products across their whole lineup will be put to the test. This includes the BGD Essential full bag of golf clubs.

Within their line of golf clubs, Byrdie Golf offers The Gilmore Collection that includes a driver and fairway wood, as well as several iron sets. We have four iron sets that are being made available for testing (The OG, Vandal, Goat, and Divot Collections). Finally, applicants can register for the Byrdie Golf Design Grind wedges.

Byrdie Golf Design has put a focus on the amateur golfer, which is evident by the Club Finder Quiz. The quiz is less analytical and more focused on who you are as a golfer. There is a clear tone when taking the quiz that golf should be fun and enjoyable. While the products definitely matter, the enjoyment of being on the course and part of the golfing community should be a high priority.

Please welcome and congratulate our testers!
