Worked on my swing today in a round with @DrizZzY. Not a particularly hot day (61°), not windy, overcast… fairways aren't particularly firm.
Hit this shot today.
It was a 3W. I don't often reach the green here, as in sometimes never in a calendar year, and today I reached it 3W, chippy hybrid from 220.
Yes. With SGI irons.
"Forgiveness" is almost entirely marketing.
SGI clubs have more weight in the sole, so they launch the ball higher with less spin, reducing distance control. The perimeter weighting might help a toe hit get a little closer to the green than it would with a muscleback… but at the cost of distance control a lot of the time, too.
