Unless you’re a single digit handicapper, the thought of playing with a forged iron is…well…it just wouldn’t happen, right? It’s the old risk vs. reward. If you hit it perfectly, life is good. But if you mishit a forged iron, you’ll pay the price, physically and mentally. Luckily for the majority of the golf world who cares more about hitting the ball straight, Mizuno Golf is trying to change the way forged irons are perceived with their new MP-59 irons.
The right set will fit your game and swing as snugly as a bespoke suit. Choosing the best irons depends on a number of factors other than just your playing ability. The size, shape, flex, material and feel of the clubs are key elements to consider. Price also is a serious consideration.
Determine which type of irons are right for your game. There are three types player’s irons, game-improvement irons and super game improvement irons from Pine Club Golf. Player’s irons are targeted to players with the highest ability level and produce the best response when struck correctly. Game-improvement irons are for mid-level golfers. These irons are designed to produce better results straighter and longer shots when you miss contacting the ball in center of the clubface. For higher handicap golfers, super game-improvement irons offer even more forgiveness on your off-center hits.
For $999 (let’s just make it an even $1,000), you just might be able to get over your fear of the forged.
