I am a big fan of my favorite brand. Been using them for years. Mostly that in addition to playing well, their service after the sale has always been 100 % for me.
That said I recieved a different brand of irons a while back. They had a much thinner sole than my gamers. They play pretty well for me too, even though I don't know what their specs are.
I like my irons to all be the same brand. My metal woods can be different from my irons, but same the brand with in themselves.
Hard to tell without more details, knowledge of the green contours and the average amount of wind around the time of his shot (the flag isn't moving much, but it is moving some) would help.
I think bad shot choice of the contours long and left of the hole sloped toward the hazard. Hitting a shot with the wind tends to lower the trajectory and lengthen the shot, but the finish of his arm position looks like he may have been flighting it low as well (or he has a stock flattish swing) making the lower trajectory even more of an issue for limiting runout.
Either way to me, it would seem safer to have a shot target short and left of the hole with his 'stock draw'. He may well have, but overcooked it. IMO if the wind was appreciable the danger of going long may have strategically called for a fade to hold it against the wind for a softer less 'hot' landing or at least one club less with his stock swing to keep the landing spot well short of the hole..
I forgot that yesterday was the start of a new month. I told myself I'd try this out.
Today, I spent about twenty minutes hitting pitches while letting my dogs run in my neighborhood's pet enclosure. My thoughts were on keeping the hands forward at impact, not flipping.
Played my home course earlier today. Had 30 putts, which helped with the 39/39---78 I carded. I even made a bird on a par 4 which is rare for me.
Have to give TST some credit for that bird. I had some time between shots and was answering a TST notification. When it was my time to hit, I hit submit, and stuck a 155 yarder about 3' from the pin. Who'd a thought.
