Thats the first time i read about golf irons and sound tuning - i think they are slowly losing it!

Whats next, you duff it somewhere 80y with a 5i and they make it sound like Garcia hitting it 250 out there?????

BTW 5i - 24 ° loft and when you look up the womens specs - its the same...........

Most golf equipment companies do this. The little screw-in weight in Titleist fairway metals and drivers and whatnot are partly there to tune the sound. In fact I think every club built by the bigger companies in the past 10 years is tuned to "sound" as good as possible.

I understand it for any kind of club with a lot of room where sound can develop and resonate - i owned the original Nike squre driver which popped your ear drums when you hit it inside a room - but irons? Didnt Mizuno do soundtesting on their irons 3 years ago? I dont think they sound tuned them or?

I just bought a set of old MP-33s - there is definatley no sound tuning going on there and why should it, once you hit the sweetspot all is fine, why mask it up when you dont hit it.

Check out the Mizuno "Sound of Feel" videos.

Uh, no, I wouldn't. If I were really brand biased, I would never use Nike irons, but the fact of the matter is, they're good clubs. I've owned some TM clubs, but they make utter crap anymore. Their Burner irons felt like bricks, and thier drivers are over 46" long. Thier clubs are delofted, cast crap.

I hit the last generation of Burner irons on the range and for whatever reason, I was hitting my Ping G5's longer and more accurate. I'm sure the clubs are fine. Maybe the shafts in my Pings were a better fit or maybe it was just because the G5 is a more forgiving iron.

when you say that taylormades Tour stuff is the only good stuff are you talking about the TP models released to the public? Just wondering, I dont know much about taylormade.

No the equipment that they give to their tour players is not available to the public.

Yeah, the TP-B irons are pretty nice, carbon steel, nice neutral iron, little or no offset. Their tour drivers are super low spin, open face, etc. Their off the rack stuff, even the so called "TP" stuff is nothing like it.

oh ok, makes sense. I never could get a feel for taylormade stuff at the stores but all the tour pros use it so I guess this kind of explains it.

    • Day 121.  While I plan to do more practice later today, I've already done some.  I hit a dozen full swings (two slow practice swings, focusing on a setup priority piece at setup and my better backswing whose picture changed recently).  6-iron, indoors, off a mat, into the net, real balls.  I also hit about two dozen chip shots (less than quarter) with my new-to-me 54 degree sand wedge.  I plan to do more work later, but I'm not sure I'll have time to post later, so I wanted to make sure I got the daily challenge part in at least. 
    • The only times I really get ticked about hitting a third shot is if I'm still closer to the tee box than I am the green.
    • Day 80 (6/24/21) -   Chipping and Putting Practice - spent about 20 minutes on the practice green with my 58* wedge spot chipping to a target (my folded golf towel) 2,3 and 4 paces from the edge of the green, then hit 3 chips each to various holes trying to get the ball to within 4 feet of the hole (which I did about half the time). Then practiced lag putting, 3 balls each to different holes trying to get within 4 feet of the hole, which I did around 2/3s of the time.  Range practice - 9-3 swings using my 7 and 8 iron and a noodle station; small bucket. Focused on keeping the club face facing the ground on the downswing and making good contact.
    • Best part about this pit stop is that they did more than the pit stops in the videos above. Not only did they change the tires, they also adjusted the front wing at the same time on both sides. All in under 2 seconds still.
    • If it was about skill, and if the green reading books made bad putters better than they otherwise would perform, we'd see the worst putters on tour being closer to the best putters because there is less of a skill gap between the two. Instead we see that the gap between the best and the worst at putting has only grown larger since the widespread introduction of green reading books. This means they have not had any measurable impact on a player's ability to putt well, because it isn't allowing the worst putters on tour to keep up with the best like you would see if some part of the game took less skill suddenly. I ignored the skill issue because claiming it's a matter of skill is patently ridiculous, and provably false. They can say whatever they like, doesn't mean a word of it is true.
