Bryson DeChambeau — winner of the 2015 U.S. Amateur and NCAA Men’s Individual Golf Championships and recently turned professional — plays with a unique set of irons and wedges that all measure the same length.
In my video, I review Sterling Irons from Tom Wishon and Jaacob Bowden that are designed to also measure one length throughout the set.

What GolfWRXers are saying about TaylorMade’s P770 irons
In our forums, our members have been discussing TaylorMade’s all-new P770 irons. WRXer ‘texcrom’ has had his set delivered and tested the irons out on the course, and here are his thoughts on the new clubs:
“Looks – Best looking iron I have ever put in my bag. At address, just a great looking club, minimal offset, relatively thin top line.
Feel – Surprisingly soft feel. I expected harder, with more of a click. As soft as my MP20 MMC’s but in a different way. Just soft, which I found very, very pleasing!
Forgiveness – Very pleased here, as a couple of shots that I felt like I missed ended up not off by much! This is why I bought these…my concession to loss of skills through aging, and wanted more forgiveness with a players club look and feel. Got it!
Distance – Initially seemed shorter than my Mizuno’s, and I was surprised. Turned out it was a result of 3 weeks off, and a temperature of 59 degrees at tee time. High flight, and distance in line with Mizuno’s (at almost 65 years old, life is a 150 yard 7 iron).
Dispersion – Excellent, but be aware these irons are straight! Back nine, I managed a couple of very slight fades, but these are pretty much aim and shoot.
Turf interaction – This was the best surprise of the day. My Mizuno’s typically cut a pretty deep divot and an all too frequent heavy shot. The P770’s were smooth through the turf, and even in my first round with them, I did not miss an iron shot. Great through the turf! Very pleased!!!
Very pleased with these!! Playing again Monday, and will know more after second round!”
Our members have been discussing the irons with some sharing their early experiences with the clubs in our forums.
Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.
- Hougz79: “Had another round with the 770s. Played my home course which (for me) is quite challenging. Fired a +6 78. Better performance than my i210s. The turf interaction is far superior for my swing. This course requires the whole bag to be hit, so tested the mid and long irons a bit. Very pleased. Very satisfied with these thus far. I think TM has a winner on their hands.”
- ASN21: “Came to these from the OG P790’s and haven’t missed a beat. They simply check all the boxes. Can’t wait to use them again on Friday.”
- gwelfgulfer: “If I do end up changing irons over the winter, these will get serious consideration. Was impressed with just trying a 7i quickly at a driver fitting, and have always loved the look of the ’05 TP CB’s.”
- tdelam: “Got mine today, and I came to this section to see if the feeling of love is mutual with fellow WRXr’s. My god, what a beautiful set of irons. The feeling of these are so nice. I am coming from P790 (2019’s) custom-built from TM with DG S300, PXG 0311T gen 2, and Mizuno MP 20 SEL’s. I went with KBS Tour S 120’s in the P770’s, very glad I did. I was very very surprised with the forgiveness of these as well. Sold my P790’s quickly. I think the TM’s win; Now to sell the other 2 sets (leftys).”
GolfWRX Classifieds (9/21/20): Sub70, Callaway X2 Hot, Titleist TS4
At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment—plain and simple.
We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.
One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.
The XHot line changed the entire trajectory of Callaway fairway woods on a performance level and the X2 Hot is still, as the name suggests, one heck of a hot fairway wood.
To see the full listing and additional pictures check out the link here: X2 Hot 3 wood
How do you get one of the best value fairway woods on the market for an even better value? You buy it used! Sub70 is known for quality clubs for a great price, and this 4-wood could be just the club you are looking for.
To see the full listing and additional pictures check out the link here: Sub 70 Fairway
One of the lowest of low spinning drivers on the market in the Titleist TS4, and if you plan on playing some golf during the breezy fall, this could be your next fairway finder.
