Off set and low cg means high and left just about every time unless you open the face and play the ball back in your stance. The only thing that makes these kinda irons good is their luanchability and forgiveness.
Iv'e just walked on a few times to play 4 holes or so before dark no sense in paying full price to walk 4 holes.
With the driver tour pros hit high draws and high fades and rarely low shots. The reason for this is their club head speed is in the 118 range and more so carry is better to fly bunkers cut corners or just miss the fairway by a few yards. A simple set up change and they can hit it low by leveling out their path I assume they do this with the irons and into the wind on tee shots. You would have to be a caddy to know but I bet they hit 80% high shots and move the ball a...
I would say loft and clubhead speed has the most to do with it because a golf ball is so light and only compresses so much meaning a 10 pound weight plate at 9 deg loft traveling at 130 mph hitting a golf ball dead on probably wouldn't go much farther than a thin titanium clubhead going 130 mph based on the ball itself.
Male tour players never hit down on the ball with their driver that's a terrible technique. Look at the long drive pro's they use a 5 deg driver and hit the ball on the absolute upswing as possible. Lady pro's and amateurs alike would benefit with lower loft because of less spin and more roll all while playing reg flex and lighter shafts. Pga pro's use xx flex and 9-10 loft because at their 118 mph swing speed it's a great mixture of pure carry with some roll and more...
If your skilled the advantages are immense on most flattish golf courses. X amount of speed = a certain amount of carry and this is why tour pros use a 10 deg at 118 mph and carry the ball a ton and land it soft. For a 65 year old swinging 86 mph who is highly skilled using 5 deg driver will result in a bullet ball with tons or roll and at times 30 yards farther than a 9 degree driver. Now your shaft should still be reg or senior flex and not to heavy either.
These guy hit it 340 now and 280 to 300 with 3 and 5 woods.
A lot of the par 4's on today's courses are in the 470 to 515 average some of em uphill.
The way I see it from a manufacturer standpoint the dg x-100 sl are basically s-300 guaranteed at a lighter weight. The dg sl s-300 would play on average more like a reg flex and I know from experience playing them in the 990's for 7 years. Shafts vary from batch to batch that's why they have tour issue being more expensive and are the best of the batch in terms of consistency. your safest bet is to get dg x-100 sl at .25 over and get your clubs bent 1 deg flat. This will...
Get a used set of titlist 690 mb and re shaft them to your liking then go the fitted and bent to your specs. might cost you 400 vs 1,400. I like the look of the miura 1957 baby blade but because of it's reduced size it will have reduced mass therefore will fly shorter. Im sure with it's low carbon steel it will feel great but who cares if it performs ok or just as good. I think as of 2014 the taylormade tour prefreed looks nice! This is an old thread though so id say...
