I have had a mixed bag.  Adams golf irons and hybrids, ping putter, and Taylormade Drive and fairway wood.  Two days ago I was fitted for a new set of Cleveland Launcher HB irons. I cant't wait until they arrive!

I've had them just over two weeks.

I've been to the range twice and the course once.

I do like them, but I'm still working out the gapping. I'd like some warmer weather for a true test.

We haven't had much nice weather here in Michigan. Looking forward to this weekend.

Hope the weekend provided some nice weather up there. I look forward to hearing more about your experience with the OL clubs. What I've seen in my few months of working with them:

Gapping: I have found that GW, PW, 9, 8, 7 are about the same as my previous set and provide a nice 10 - 15yd gap from one club to the next. 6 and 5 I'm still trying to figure out. The range I hit at on a regular basis is poorly marked for distance (100 / 150 / 200 / 250 are clearly marked but nothing in between) and I'm usually there at night, so I haven't figured out my 5 and 6 distance as closely as I'd like yet.

I have found them to be REMARKABLY forgiving. I hit my 5 off the toe 3 times over the weekend. I was short left in the FW off the tee, short right on an approach, and short left on a par 3 2nd shot. All WELL in play and not grossly short. I've had similar experience with each of the clubs in the bag.

Lastly, the GW is my new favorite club. I don't pretend to be long and that GW is as close to exactly 100yds full swing as anything I've ever hit. With the LSW info on how to control <100yd distances with 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 swings I have it pretty well dialed in at 40 / 60 / 80 yds as well. I suck at golf so it's not perfect, but I feel completely confident and my results have been much better with that club than with anything else in my bag.

I would agree with what you said about the gapping with the 7 iron through Gap Wedge being pretty consistent with my previous set.

I have not hit the 5 and 6 iron well to this point. Strange because the "one-length" concept would indicate that I would hit them as well as I hit my other clubs.

I'm working on some things and hopeful to turn a corner soon.

All-in-all, I'm pretty happy so far.

I am having EXACT trouble with 5 and 6. I have not done video comp between GW swing and 5I or 6I swing. I "think" that I am swinging 5 and 6 too hard creating swing issues. I'll be at the range (hopefully with video) a couple nights this week and will look at those.

The vote options are not that great.  Very few people have a set of 14 clubs with all of them the same brand.  I have a Taylor Made driver and irons.  A Cobra hybrid.  A Golden Bear lob wedge and a Spalding/Jessie Valentine Putter.

I have chosen Taylor Made because that is the majority of my clubs

    • Everybody claims to hate slow play, so why is it I am always stuck behind people who think they are pros. It's quite well known that old people are slow players, but they are slow drivers, so why would anything be any different. I can understand new players being slow, because they have to hit the ball many times to get to the green. For me the worst are women. It's hilarious, just watch what they do. Men will take their shots and walk to their own ball, but women can't do that. They all walk around the course shoulder to shoulder and attend every shot. This means a four ball women's outing takes three times longer than a men's. After all, if they aren't together they have to stop talking, and that won't do. Don't believe me, just watch them ! 
    • Fitting is a good thing for sure. A bit overrated overall though. But for you specifically I think your time and money would be better spent with instruction. With a 30+ hcp you’ll get a pretty rapid improvement at first. You’ll probably make some significant changes to your current swing but nothing at this point that would be significantly affected by tweaking a standard set of steel, stiff shafts.
    • Day 92: Went to the driving range for a pretty bleh session. Really need to focus better next time.
    • Day 149 - May 26, 2020 Full swing work again. This is going to be almost everything that I do. Another interesting day. Went to the range at about 6:30. Fortunately the back end is in the shade. Started off hitting some half swing 7I. Did not go well. Had no feel for the swing, began searching. Hit some 8I. Chipped some drivers. Hit some wedges. More 7I. Almost none good. Some fine, but I knew they were not done "properly." Toward the end, found a feeling when I decided to hit some 5I. Not sure why… but I had the feeling and striped a bunch of 5I in a row. Left on a high note. But not before hitting a bunch of pitches and chips. Longer ones, 30-40 yards.
    • Is anyone experiencing any problems getting tee times at your club? My home club is doing 15-min intervals (used to be 7-mins) so the availability has been cut in half. Since reopening at the beginning of May, I have been having difficulties securing a tee time, both during the week and on the weekends. Weekends are especially bad when we get 90+ tee requests but the club only has 50 available.   It is very frustrating to have to stalk the tee sheet for cancellations...but lots of members just don’t show up or they block their slot to play as single/doubles, and my club is doing nothing about it...
