why would you not take advantage of any help you can get in this difficult game?  Especially if you are playing for fun...make the experience of playing as fun as you can and unless you are an above average ballstriker, why would you not give GI/SGI Irons a look?


I am a single digit and I would never play blades...I play Taylormade M2's and love the game immensely....more so since I've upgraded to these irons because I am carding lower scores more consistently this year than I have in years.

I believe that the researchable measurable reality is that MOST golfers play BETTER with GIs and SGIs, once they try them out for a while...  

It used to be the case that pros (who are NOT practical models for most players to emulate, anyway, given their extreme gifts and massively focused dedication and TIME investment in this funny little game) didn't play hybrids, either, and didn't play graphite shafts in irons; even that is changing, however.  Does that mean that you and I shouldn't play hybrids or graphite shafts?   

Play what you have the most fun with, because unless you are a pro or pro wannabe, then that's the name of the golf game.  If you're on a zen guru quest to master the most difficult clubs you can come up with, well then that's fine but then you ought only be advising yourself and MAYBE other esoteric zen guru questers; however, why would you advise anybody until you actually ARE a zen guru master of the blade?  And then, real zen guru masters only advise other serious seekers of such mastery.

For most players, even players in the top 25% of the world, which means anybody under about 14 handicap ( most experts agree that the "average" golfer shoots 100+, probably more like 105+ measured honestly... do your research; I have.), the goal of the game is shoot lower scores while having more fun -- for MOST people, that means playing clubs designed to be easier to hit, though I know "easier" is SOMEWHAT subjective but it is mainly measurable objectively.

    • I have been stuck on both the home course (which I haven't played as much as usual) and on the away courses. I have 8 more to go on the home course and just #14 on the away composite. I had several good opportunities that stopped on the lip, both putting and chipping. It's kind of annoying at this point. On the home front, I am not sure why I can't make any progress on the sheet, as some of those holes left are gettable, particularly #1 (but I don't warm up and am just happy with a par there), but I haven't got them, lol!  It's not like I am suddenly making fewer birdies, but they are not on the holes I need them on.
    • Doh, I saw this after I posted the pic, lol.
    • Scott Fawcett had some interesting bits on the latest How's My Hand Path podcast. He said something like when Bryson was in college or just got on tour, can't remember, he showed him two swings, his regular and something like the one we see now. So it was something he had in his bag, although probably less polished,  way back when. 211. Sick.  
    • Was windy today, and didn't get above 50 F during my round. Played the short course (par 71 cr 63) and shot an 83 (43-40). Hit the ball reasonably well most of the day. Missed all birdie putts, of which I had 4 that I would consider reasonably makeable (within 15 feet or so), including stuffing it to 3.5 ft on 18, only to miss on the low side.
