I volunteered at the U.S. Senior Amateur last week in St. Louis.
I had the 6 AM to 11 AM practice range shift on Monday, the first day of match play (round of 64).
I got a good look at about 25 bags, and took some notes. Only one player had a set of irons from the 2016 year - TM PSi Tour. But, most of the irons were 2-5 years old.
Most of the 2016 stuff was in the drivers - lots of TM M1 and M2, and some Callaway XR family stuff. Some of the drivers were a couple of years old. (Several Ping and Titleist drivers too).
Fairway woods and hybrids were all over the place - some new and some several years old. One guy carried a Callaway Steelhead III 3W and 5W.
For wedges, mostly current-year or a couple of years old (new grooves).
And, a lot of variety within the bags. Can't remember one bag where the clubs were all one brand. The elder statesmen of golf go with what works.
according to the ad, the shaft weight for the 21 Deg is 235 g. In viewing his video, jesse actually had a "Black Beauty" in his hands. The BJ Black is more than likely this years model of the same club. I will try and see if I can get the model of shaft. I seem to recall reading somewhere that the Bobby Jones run a little softer. If that is so, then I should go Reg. Nobody I know has one and I do not know if any of the big box stores carry them or would let me try it out. I will say, I love my Orlimar Hip Ti driver, although a few years old, I like the smaller head size.
The U.S. will win the Ryder Cup 14 1/2 to 13 1/2.
Ryan Moore will have the best individual results, going 4-0-0.
Jordan Speith will clinch the cup at the 17th hole.
So it is written, so it shall be done.
I have played Mizuno irons for about five years and like them very much. However I was a club builder for ten years back in the early 2000's and Tom Wishon Golf is a great company and the owner is one of the best designer of clubs bar none. I have built many clubs from his company and myself have had four sets of irons and many fairway woods and drivers from him as well. Just as good and better than some of the OEM's, but the one bad thing is with all components is a low resale value simply because most people think clone when you mention components but that is not the case with Wishon Golf they design their own heads and shafts. You can't go wrong with either company as both make great equipment.
