Single Length Irons – My First Impressions  Part 2

After placing my order and waiting like a 5-year-old with a loose tooth for the day to arrive my new irons finally came

I picked them up and made my way to where I practice, an indoor facility with some nice launch monitors (iGolf, Panama City). I grabbed the GW and started hitting shots.

I was expecting a long slow learning curve but balls were flying high, straight and about the right distance from the get-go! Balls were hitting (virtual) greens, landing softly and spinning back – WIN! The distance was about the same as my old 52, I was expecting to pick up a few yards with my short irons but wasn’t. I really didn’t care, the clubs felt great and balls flew straight.

Next up, I obviously pulled the 4 iron. I made some swings and balls were still flying straight but maybe 5-10 yards shorter than previously. I was expecting this, but I wasn’t getting the pay-off of more length with my short irons. I was still happy, my 4 irons were straight and at a consistent distance, I’ve got enough golf experience to use what I have to score well.

After a brief 40 minute session, I had to leave, knowing I had a reasonably big game the next day. I was the guest of the director of a local country club, playing 18 to discuss some coaching/business ideas.Cobra Forged One Irons - Impact Golf - Latin America's #1 English Language Golf Blog

In short, that game went well. I struggled to know how far the irons flew but as I got closer to having them dialled in I started knocking down some pins. In 12 holes on a decent course, playing from the tips I made 3 birdies – but there were some doubles too!

In summary, I loved the new clubs, I knew they were right for me but I also knew I had work to do to understand this mega change to my game.

I will share some moe about the changes I am still making to my game.  The changes are small but the impact is huge!
