Happy Thanksgiving! From @mvmac and I, we'd like to thank all of you for being such awesome members. We have TST because we like golf and golfers, so we wish you and yours the very best today. Thank you!
Congratz! They are more forgiving than previously according to Titleist. If you get a choice of a shaft that fits you and your length and lie, it would be ideal.
I am not a good ball striker and use what are probably less forgiving irons. What most people do, and I've done is bag the irons that you can consistently hit well. If it's 7-PW, so be it, and get a couple of hybrids to cover. You can improve the swing and speed to implement the longer irons. The new Titleist hybrids are handsome. While I can hit a 5 and 6i decently, I get more distance and consistency out of a hybrid. In fact, my 28 Hybrid is my favorite club. Hope that helps.
The Olympics is Huge in the US. Not sure why you think it is not. But Olympic golf is new and we need to see if it really takes off. The issue for me is how it is seeded. They limit the number of golfers from each country, which would eliminate good players from countries that have a lot of high level players. It will also let lower OWGR get in because they represent a country that has relatively few good players.
It depends how much you would use it in comparison to the clubs you are replacing. The one thing I would ask is how consistent off the tee are you with your driver? If you have bad days with your driver it could be rough having to give up 60 yards off the tee given the gap you would have.
I have started doing this a month or two ago as I address the ball. Holding the club in my right hand at address helps me keep from getting my hand to far forward. I do agree that after I am aligned I "grip" the club with my left hand first.
