      Those are the two year old TW737s and have been on clearance for a while.

    I agree they look great. Never liked their woods, drivers etc but obviously doesn’t bother Rose being in 2nd place first day!

    Funny how all the club companies just make cool little designs, cuts, etc in the BACK of the iron where it has no effect on the shot, just cute looks…

      You cant honestly be serious…

      But if you are, I have a nice set of 1964 Mcgregors i think would be a great fit for you.

        Yes seriously. Look at all the garbage they’re coming out with, how many ways can an AP be made, or an Apex, etc.? The front of the club is the same otherwise. And to offer an iron from 55 years ago is idiotic. Nice try. And “SMH”? Are you in grade school?

      With Computer Aided Design they’re moving the centre of gravity to a more precise location, with each design they’re trying to refine the CoG and spin rates with player feedback. Srixon recently released new irons that incorporated designs from a few years back as their tour players preferred some of the older model’s performance. All those notches and cut-outs are there to help with launch and spin, even if it is for minute difference.

      There is an aesthetic quality to the designs, some players are scared of true muscle-backs, a notch here, a groove there … the marketing department can go to town on how playable their latest spanners are! Visible tech sells. Even if it doesn’t do a great deal.

        Well said. The point is that at some juncture, all they’re doing is changing the way the back of the club looks, trying to squeeze out some sort of gain in order to sell clubs. The factories, structure, etc. of the club companies are all in place and need something to pump out every year. Not saying that is bad or anything, just pretty funny to observe the marketing guys try to sell the latest and greatest. And of course a new iron today is “better” than 60 years ago…I’d say that a 24 year old Johnny Miller would be even more laser-like w/ a set of those Honma’s that Rose is carrying…or maybe not?

    Kinda interesting with an I10 (10-iron), haven’t seen a P-wedge marked that way before…

      My old Diawa Advisor 273s had a 10 iron – probably a Japanese thing. Incidentally, these were the irons Ian Baker-Finch won the Open with and the irons used by Woods in his amateur days.

        Powerbilt and MacGregor put a “10” on their Pitching Wedges back in the 70s. Even Callaway offered a “10 Iron” in one of their Big Bertha offerings a few years back. At one time the Pitching Wedge was shaped more like a Sand Wedge and had 52 degrees of loft. As lofts got stronger (and it’s been going on for a long time now) the Pitching Wedge became somewhat useless for pitching. That is why some companies (not that many in reality) treated it as what it really is, the last club in the set of irons. Regardless of what’s on the sole, most set matching PWs look more like the nine iron than a true wedge.
