    How much do we think it cost Bryson for these irons? Did he get them completely free due to being a good player? It almost sounds about 10K if you or I wanted these made by David. What do you think? I’m constantly looking into the cost of things. Take a player like Jordan Speith or another Junior that was top of their flights throughout their life – they took lessons from a top 100 teacher their entire lives. At 500/hour taking lessons 3 times a week and many like Jordon spent a lot more time than that – I’d say their parents spent about 20K on golf lessons before the kid hit his 18th birthday. See: Jordan, Cantlay, Bryson, etc al.
    I’m a father and love the game. I feel that I had enough talent to make it but at what cost? Many of their parents had to be super rich.

    Wow the amount stuff Edel put into making Bryson’s iron is mind blowing.

    It seens his excitement level is bit lower in this video vs. other videos. Maybe it’s just me, but all the work, money, R&D, and time and every absolutely every small detail that went into building this ultimate set to just have Bryson leave and and go to Cobra has to be disheartening. Being such a super small company and put that effort into something and not really get all the “pay off” from all the work and then have a major OEM basically take your design and rehash it and make millions off it has to be heartbreaking. It’s crazy the precision that went into that set.

    Before this series I really had zero interest in Edel clubs but now I’m very interested in their wedges (suppose that’s the point of the series though, but it worked 🙂 ).

      Mark Crossfield’s review of them has me convinced they’re the best choice for single length. Pricey but for good reason.

      Yeah but Bryson may have paid for those irons and the free marketing MUST be worth it. I can agree with your statement but business is business. Either way Edel makes some amazing gear and am a huge fan.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Guys that shoot under par, what clubs do you use?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from BiggEm, who asks those GolfWRX members that happen to break par consistently, what clubs they use. Driver and irons are the clubs in question which BiggEm is interested in hearing about, and as well as many posters submitting the clubs they use, an interesting debate regarding “arrow vs archer” has developed, as well as general playing tips from posters while out on the course.

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.

  • cm24: “5 years ago, When I was actually playing really well (for me), and I was in the +2 handicap range I was playing a set of Mizuno mp68 irons.  Sold those for AP2s and never have brought my game back.  I went thru 8 sets of irons over the three years after I sold the Mizunos and finally settled on a set of Srixon z965s.  I think those under par days are coming back, my birdies are going up as my proximity to the hole is going thru the roof, and it’s leading to confidence across my game.”
  • SASpeeder: “Not shooting under par quite as regularly anymore but still gaming the same equipment. Driver: Taylor M2 9.5” 2016 model with Diamana BF 60TX shaft. Irons: Miura CB1008 with KBS $Taper S+ shafts”
  • u2hockey14: “Adam Scott went back to his Titleist 910D3 this year due to accuracy issues, and he started to play better instantly. The bottom line is, for accomplished players, if you find a driver you can hit straight and are confident with it, stick with it. The extra 4-8 yards you get with “today’s” technology isn’t worth giving up that confidence and accuracy.”
  • leejohnkieh: “I’ve recently gotten my scores back down to even/under par after I got rid of drivers that didn’t work. For me, it’s all about feel and look. I went from 910d2 to a 17′ M1 to an M2 then to an M3 and now to the Ts3 in a span of 3 years. Tried every shaft known to man and I just could not get by round after round with TM drivers. Wildly inconsistent. I’d play tourneys not knowing where my driver was gonna go that day.”
