My son just got back into golf last summer. Used to go to golf camp. Had a decent natural swing.
18, learning the fundamentals all over again.

Bought him a set of D200 Wilson irons to replace his junior set as a surprise.
Shovels, 85 gram reg shaft. He LOVED them as we have been at a sim 4-5 times (winter up here).
But he's been very inconstant with these irons. Often fat, then thin....

This week at the out door range he asked for fun to try my P790 7 iron DG 105 stiff.
Stripe! again and again.
Not high. but solid with a draw. HUH?!?!?!?!?!!?

He said he could "feel" where the head was.

Took him to the retail store yesterday.
He tried a TM M3. not great. inconsistent again.
For fun I grabbed a blade looking iron and gave it to him.
Stripe! again low launch but solid with a draw.
was an MP 18 6 iron with an X shaft!!!!

(Note: His ss with a driver in the sims is 91)

What's going on folks?
Is it the shaft?
Too much offset?
Combo of all?

Looks like we have to return this new set and find a better match.
But I want to keep it fun for him.
