But I have gone retro... hitting MP 30s, retraced my clubs, first to Zing 2 irons (skipped right over the Zings) and now back to Eye 2s. I'm going to put graphite in one set but haven't decided which one.  Pro on the Zing 2s is that they have stronger lofts, but the Eye 2s are more workable (more like the Mizzys).  What to do, so many choices? The only consolation is that I'm doing the work and can change them as often as I like.
You used the term "firm", which is not the same as "tight", and tight is how most amateurs grip the club. Looking at one's glove for wear can indicate re-gripping and an overly tight grip. Tight grips also restrict the release that in turn results in disappointing contact.  A firm grip is indeed one that allows a player to have confidence in the connection between his/her hands and the club. That confidence leads to freedom in the swing. "Holding a bird" might have worked...
I completely agree. Watching Mcilroy swinging within himself, albeit a powerful swing, and seeing his success led me to the same conclusion. Tiger is certainly strong enough but swinging out of his shoes on every shot is absurd and directly the cause of his back problems.  Even taking one more club, save for the driver of course, and swinging a bit easier would help him tremendously. His driver rips just give me an image of the ball going anywhere but where he's aiming and...
I hate to break it to people and to go back in time, but the two worst people I encountered during the 1988 US Open and the 1999 Ryder Cup held at Brookline, MA, were Lee Trevino and Herman, his caddie.  They  were disgusting and classless when not on camera, and displayed remarkable depths of anti-Semitism.  The vile language they used was an embarrassment to the PGA and golfers worldwide. I was a marshal working at a tee that was inaccessible to the fans and to...
I'm a college president who has played less and less as I've moved up the academic ladder. When only teaching I could play 4-5 times a week and now, well, once or twice a year. No wonder my game has disappeared.
Wait just a minute here!  Does this design look familiar?  How about a comparison to the Ping Zing 2 irons (followed by the ISI models) - both heel/toe weighted with a center cutout to allow for the club head to glide more easily through the turf.  Hmmm.
