So I know a little about this brand of golf clubs but not much, pretty much that they are very expensive and rare. I was playing in a tourney the other day and my playing partner had a set of the thinest blades from this maker and he was 62!!! Just wondering if anyone on this site has had experience from them, I did some research and from what they say the metal they use and the double forging process makes these clubs some of the best on tour, but why dont we see more of them in that case?

Being that KZG is local to where I live and play (about two blocks away) there are a bunch of guys in my GC that have been fitted at their headquarters. The guys that play their clubs swear by them and are more often than not are single digit handicappers. They recently (last two years or so) started offering a cavity back which is pretty nice. I don't know that these are more expensive than buying off the rack since they compete with no less than a dozen golf shops nearby their HQ. Really nice, clean looking clubs that perform well.

I have never played them but was considering to buy a set of there irons. I talked to the fitter and if I had the capital, I would do it. They are very high quality and lots of options. The fitting process and the quality of the sticks makes them a great.

As you can see from my sig I play KZG's forged blades. Had them in the bag for 4 seasons now, and I can tell you that they're fantastic clubs. As with any soft forged club they show wear pretty quickly, but when stuck well they feel sooooo sweet. As with any club, get fit and make sure you find a skilled fitter to take care of you....makes a world of difference in the finished product.

I've played these for 2 seasons and love them. You get IMMEDIATE feedback on whether you hit a good shot or not.

Someone above mentioned cost. I didn't count them as that expensive. I paid $500 for 5 - PW with the Rifle shafts, grips, etc.

Had a sett of kzg zo with 7.0 project x. The old project x. They are the best irons ever made. The strikes feel like butter and the workability is amazing. I'm looking for a used set now so any one that has them let me know. I have ap2 714 now and they are not for me trade anyone? :-)

I have played KZG Forged 2 for about 15 years.  I have also used their Driver and FW wood.  Very nice clubs and since I have played them for a long time, I guess you could say I am happy with them.

    • I still like this method.  It feels like I using my bottom hand as a "forehand" to the chip toward the apex and let the ball break downhill to the hole . Great for downhill chips  I find I can also open and close the wedge face with the same hand and make it easy to hit out of the sand with similar rhythm 
    • Placed a coaster on the carpet, and hit putts from five feet away until I hit the coaster 50 times. The few times I missed were to the right.
    • That's awesome - good stuff!  You must have been doing a little "scoreboard-checking" after that 30...no matter how hard you tried not to!
    • Tough practice session today.  It's hot out there (even at 8pm), and I'm tired from 36 holes of golf this weekend in 90-degree heat...and probably about 36 beers (not while golfing, but still). I'm sticking with the same practice template.  First half of the session focuses on backswing and downswing path; second half focuses on clubface control.  Every swing is on video and reviewed. I was a bad "stupid monkey" for about 5 swings at the beginning...I was thinking about the "short-arm" stuff above, and trying to work on it.  Based on the slow-mo video, I was actually able to get one REALLY good inline impact with the 6-iron by DRIVING my hands forward...but I made terribly fat contact.  After that swing I made myself stop and put it completely out of my head.  I didn't even take any more face-on video.  F-O-C-U-S is key right now. After that brief distraction, my swing path and backswing work went OK...I was getting a bit lazy on the backswing and not completing my turn on some swings, but I'm doing better at hitting my downswing positions.  Contact and ball flight with the irons is really good right now (relative to my skill level).  I was hitting mostly my "on-course" pushes, moving towards push-fades with the longer clubs, but with overall very solid contact and height.     I think my A4 is pretty good on this swing...full shoulder turn and good hip turn (not sure about hand/arm position, but that's not part of what I'm working on right now):   Club is in-line with the hands at A6 (that's good):   Impact (not checking anything here yet, but including for completeness).  I can tell I'm still "short-arming" it at impact, but I'm not worried about that yet:   Game Golf tag basically visible at A8 (that's good):   I'm also finally hitting my target positions with my driver, which represents progress.  Contact was pretty bad tonight (quite a few heel and toe strikes), so I just slowed it down to 75% with the driver and focused on path.  Hit some decent 200-yard baby-fades with that swing (also a bunch of my "on-course" pushes).   A4 here felt a bit abbreviated, but it looks OK on the video (feel was probably because it was not a full-speed swing):   Club is in-line with the hands at A6 (took me a damn month to be able to do this with the driver, but...it's getting more and more consistent):   Impact for completeness:   Good A8 here for the driver (again, I say "really good" only in terms of the swing path I've been working towards):   Overall, I think it was a good night of work on swing path, considering how I was feeling.   As for the clubface control drill: I really need to find a way to put something downrange (or start going to a different range to work on that piece).  Without a visual reference, the open/closed clubface positions are way too exaggerated.  I'm probably still working on the skill (the "twist"), but not as productively as I could be.  This might be the piece that prompts me to buy a small net for the backyard.   Summary / Next Steps I'm hoping to get one more practice session in this week before my trip to work with @iacas on Saturday.  Based on my slow progress to date, unless that session is some sort of cosmic breakthrough, I don't think I'm going to be ready to add any more drills or pieces to work on yet.  If I tried to add another swing thought on either the backswing or downswing, I'm pretty sure it'd mess up one of my current priorities.  Especially since I've only cracked the surface of the clubface control drill. We'll see.  I suppose if I were to focus on getting into a better position at A4, I could work that into the backswing drills I've been doing...or something similar.  
    • Definitely.  Possibly even slightly simpler with a chipper because it's already designed for that, likely more upright than a 9 iron etc. :)
