If you carry your 7 around 170 why do you want players distance irons? Just for the forgiveness?
Clearly you've got some speed so you don't necessarily need more distance.
Obviously this is hard to say without seeing you hit any shots, but I think you'd be a great candidate for something like a P770, T150, Apex CB, or at least a combo set.
Have you hit all of those clubs you mentioned? It's difficult to list pros because everyone's swings are different. What you need out of an iron is going to be different than what I (or someone else) needs. The "pros" to switching would be evident in a fitting. Tighter dispersion both horizontally and vertically, improved turf interaction, more appealing to the eye, etc. I can't say if you will get any of those things as a result of switching or not.
I had just kind of assumed you'd get fit before making the switch.
I carry my 7-iron around 170 yards. The ground is really soft here in Upstate NY so not a lot of run.
@klineka The fairway/hybrid gapping isn’t as much of an issue as one would think. I get flyers with the E722s from the fairway. Are there pros to switching?
@ChiTown It might be a good idea to get fit, because what do I know I’m just a 7 handicap.
I thought it was a little premature in the messaging to be preaching the dangers of gambling. I agree with the premise of the content and it is surely a problem for him and his family. Maybe they didn't lose a house or whatever but there has to be a psychological and emotional toll on his family. But lets see you not bet more than one day in a row before you get on the bandwagon.
I like Phil as a player/personality, but this just rubbed me the wrong way. I don't think he should get the pats on the back for doing the right thing just yet. Put a track record together, help some people out, and let someone else bring the attention to the situation.
