I was looking through the pictures on Golf.com of players' bags from the U.S. Open, and I noticed something fishy in Gary Woodland's bag: [URL=http://www.golf.com/golf/gallery/article/0,28242,2077361-23,00.html]http://www.golf.com/golf/gallery/article/0,28242,2077361-23,00.html[/URL] That club in the top/middle, with "19*" stamped on it looks like some sort of iron/hybrid. Anyone know if that is new or am I losing my mind?

Heh. I don't carry a 3wood. So I picked up a Titleist 2 hybrid, 19* 585. It's legit and I tee off with it quite frequently. So this pertains to me very loosely. haha

The 585/19 was in my bag too for a while, but had some unpleasant dog hooks with it now and then ..... and it wasn't just me ..... still a great but demanding hybrid, almost like a 2 iron. I would say you pick up a hybrid for easy length, but the 585/19 isn't really an easy hybrid.

I felt it was about the only hybrid, made for scratch players

Yeppp, at the golfwrx forum this has been talked about a lot......


Do you know the Controler Driving Iron (17*) ..... it is about equal ...... haven't hit one yet, but at 17* it is not everyones frind of course ...... I know a guy who was so pleased with them, that he became the european distributor and bought 500 of them, in various models/shafts ..... still about 485 of them in stock...... hihi.

Can go at about any price ...... if you are interested .......

I wish they made this, i'd love to get one.  Right now i'm using an old 2-iron with non-conforming grooves so it'll probably come out of the bag in the next few years and I haven't found anything I like to replace it yet.  Having a 2-iron that you can hit off the tee on short par 4's about head high is something I don't want to ever give up.

Can a 2 iron have non-conforming grooves?

I think the cutoff is 25* so, yeah, I guess a 19* 2-iron would be fine.

    • I just recently bought the book from Amazon. Very interesting concept. Tom Saguto has a ton of videos on the subject & has an online golf school. He recently attended a Stack & Tilt seminar in Florida hosted by Mike & Andy. Tom's videos are on u-tube.
    • Day 11 - Worked on post impact follow through as I tend to stop rotating and making chicken wings.  Was able to do late setting sun chips/pitches where I could barely make out the flagsticks in the fading light.  Went to “see it/feel it/trust it” mode focusing on what I am feeling thru the setup, backswing, downswing and follow thru.....
    • Hi guys... Well after a bit of tweaking, he's hitting the driver beautifully... The final adjustment was to go to a double overlap grip... Results, together with the flaring are wonderful.... Cheers to all....
    • First swings of 2021. Jeez. Oh I figured out why my audio was off in previous videos. Debris stuck in the phone’s microphone holes. Kind of surprised I didn’t lose too much of the swing from inactivity. Chalk that up to video and experience.  
    • Does that mean we don't have to see that large polo pony again?  That was a stupid word for him to use, tip of tongue.  I have used words in anger, on a golf course, about a certain mother (but I love my Mother) that I would not want picked up on a mic.  Generally, I just grumble loudly... arrrggghhh!.  That covers anything and everything and I don't lose my sponsorship with Ralph Lauren.
