Haywoodgolf unveils limited-edition 24-karat gold-coated irons, wedges and putter

Published

on

Haywoodgolf has been making waves in the golf equipment world, and the recently formed company has now unveiled it’s limited-edition 24-karat gold-coated clubs which extend to their irons, wedges and all-new putter.

Each clubhead features 10-microns of 24-karat gold (5-times more than standard gold-plating) designed for a bold look as well as excellent durability.

Included in the range is Haywood’s first putter release, and along with its 24-karat gold plated look, the flat-stick is CNC-milled with dual, removable weights. Made of 303 stainless steel, the putter contains 3-degrees of loft, 72-degrees of lie angle, and weighs 350-grams. The putter starts at $550.

The brand’s signature irons contain a two-piece hollow body design with a 431 stainless steel body (soft) that is welded to a specially heat-treated 17-4 stainless steel face (hard) – designed to offer players maximum distance. The 24-karat gold-coated irons start at $2500 per set.

Haywood’s signature wedges are forged with S20C carbon steel with CNC milled grooves designed for soft feel and maximum control and arrive in 52, 56 and 60-degree loft options. The brand’s 24-karat gold plated wedges start at $399.

With bespoke customer service in mind, the limited-edition 24-karat gold-coated clubs are currently “reserve only”. Once reserved, the company will reach out to each customer directly to decide on shaft, grips and ferrule options.

Haywoodgolf’s limited-edition 24-karat gold-coated clubs are available to reserve now at gold.haywoodgolf.com.

    Im 1/2 tempted to order a putter. NOT bc of the gold nonsense but bc of the dual sight lines. Not too common to find putters set up like that. Being right handed and left eye dominant putters set up like that are perfect.

    Wrapping gold plating around 17-4 cast steel? Seriously?

    I’ve always though iron covers were stupid. Well, they still are, but they’re mandatory for these. Yet they’re designed for showing off, right?

    I really don’t care how much money someone wants to spend on clubs, nor vanity. But these simply don’t add up.

    These can’t be for actual play, are they? They would look great mounted on a wall.

    When a golfer shows up at a high end club with these irons, the immediate response is “what a douchebag!”

    • Brock Larsen

      Why? Because some people can afford things you can’t? Do you think “what a douchebag!” when you see someone driving around in a nice car too? Sounds like a personal problem…. just sayin.

        Because it’s clear they are there to be seen for their wallet. It’s pretentious.

    Spend a lot on equipment only to have it look like crap after a few months. That will wear off very quickly. Who thought this was a good idea?!? And the glare off those would make them unplayable in the right sunlight.

    Gold has many wonderful, useful properties. Use in any kind of sports equipment outside of computers for e-sports is not one of them.

Making golf easier: Single length vs hybrid irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

single length irons

In our forums, our members have been discussing directions to take to make golf as easy as possible. WRXer ‘SugarLandGolfer’ kicks off the discussion, saying:

“I see two paths to make the game easier:

1) Hybrid irons with shafts to keep the flight down

2) Single length irons

I did a demo day with Cleveland recent and tried the launchers with i95 steelfiber shafts, and they felt amazing. Only hit the 8 iron, and it felt like hitting the ball with a sledgehammer. However, I’m still concerned about the longer clubs. Hence single length.

If you were making the easiest to play set, which direction would you go, and why?”

And our members have been having their say on the matter 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.

  • NoTalentLefty: “Lessons for sure, but there are a few ways to do it. Hybrids for the 3 thru 5 6 or 7 irons is also a way. Offset in irons and hybrids, fairway woods, etc. Single length, as you say. It’s a great thought, but the only way the game got easier for me was golfing a lot. Then as I got older and was familiar with the swing, I filled in what clubs to play. I’m 60+ now and the only club I never Been comfortable with since the advent of the 400+ CC head Is the driver. Godspeed on your search.”
  • dlygrisse: “I like the idea of going shorter steps between clubs, say 1 /4 to 3/8”. I believe some custom fitters think this is the way to go. I’ve also seen sets where the short irons are say 8-LW at 36” than the 5-7 are 37” and the long irons or hybrids are 38”. I’ve always wanted to try a similar set.”
  • jomatty: “If you wanted something super easy but not hybrids, I would look at the Cleveland uhx. I’ve got a 20 degree 4 iron, and it is very easy to hit. Going to a Cleveland launcher style club does make it a lot easier t9 hit the ball in the air and make solid contact. It has really helped my wife and is something I would consider.”
  • pinestreetgolf: “Neither one. It’s like asking us which is easier to put on, a small shirt or an XXL shirt? Well, it kinda matters what size you are. Your swing determines which is “easier”. The question itself belies a fundamental misunderstanding about how to shoot a low score, and that is correlating golf and golf swing. Your basic question is “which of these clubs makes playing golf swing easier” when that has relatively little to do with your score. Golf is a game of decisions. It is much closer to chess than tennis. You score lower when you make better decisions. Mechanics and equipment help (a lot) but they do it inside the context of an overall game and the way you swing. There is no objective answer to getting better except figuring out how to get the ball in the hole in fewer strokes. There is no answer to this question.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about the single best piece of equipment they’ve found lately

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing their latest great find in the equipment department. WRXer ‘Double Dodger’ kicks off the thread with his choice of The Grip Master’s perforated leather grips, saying:

“They are amazing! I play without a glove and have psoriatic arthritis and have never felt a grip like this before. No issues whatsoever with slipping. No issues with harshness.

I have played about 30 rounds and see absolutely no wear at all, and the tackiness is unbelievable.”

And our members have been discussing the piece of equipment they’ve found in the last year that has changed their game.

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.

  • uglande: “Ventus Blue shafts.”
  • NoTalentLefty: “The Callaway B21 Fairway woods. Got the 3 and is it easy to hit.”
  • spring7: “I am not sure I have been happier with more clubs in my bag at any single time, and I have been doing this a long time! Cobra Speedzone Extreme Yellow HzDRUS Smoke – Longer and straighter than anything I have hit! TEE EXS Pro 15* Tensi Orange- Still honeymooning, but amazing off the tee and fairway, bad swings are punished though. Callaway MD5 Jaws 54 X Grind, perfection every way.”
  • Pepperturbo: “My most exciting find has been 620MB’s irons, specifically PW, 9i but 7i at 150yds uphill. It’s like aiming and shooting at a target and the ball sticks. Second best has been Ventus Velocore shafts. They be keeping this ole man in the game.”
  • mizunotps: “G410 plus driver. Really easy to hit.”
