How many strokes have you shaved using game improvement irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing their progress since opting for game improvement irons. WRXer ‘Texcellence86’ asks members:

“Asking players who switched from players irons to game improvement irons, how many strokes have you shaved? How much did your handicap improve?”

And our members have been sharing their experiences in our forum.

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.

  • itsjustagame: “My choice in irons has way less impact on my scores than my choice of driver and putter.”
  • dlygrisse: “I played some my best golf with blades, but over time my game and ball striking deteriorated as I got married and played less. I started playing I3 OSize in 2000 when they hit the market, I became more consistent. My good rounds probably weren’t much better but my bad rounds became better.”
  • Socrates: “I have no data to say that I’ve gotten better with GI clubs, but I can say that from age 45 to 60 I have maintained my iron play and even gotten my hcp down a few strokes. Just for fun I occasionally haul out some clubs that are non-GI (aka blades), and I don’t miss them a bit. To quote Lee Child, ‘Never Go Back.'”
  • larryd3: “been playing the T200s for a year and cut my index by at least 5 points. I’ve also played a lot more, taken some lessons and been really successful with my short game and putting. Just got fit for a set of Callaway Apex 21s, so hoping they are even better. Did the irons do it, not sure but certainly didn’t hurt. I was playing ap2s and a couple of others previously.”

Bettinardi has unveiled its latest Hive release: its Limited 1/5 QB6 Wall St. Gangster Fat Cat Putter and its ‘To The Mooon!’ Betti Boy headcovers.

The Wall St. Gangster Fat Cat putter features a completely hand stamped checker pattern across the shoulder and bumpers and intricately engraved T-Hive money bags and gold coins across the Micro-honeycomb face milling.

The flat-stick’s sole features a Wall Street Poison Gangster Fat Cat over a stock graph pattern, smoking a cigar, and the flat-stick is completed with a two-tone gold flame and Tour blast finish.

The limited one of five putter comes equipped with a special, rare tonal red Wall St. Gangster Fat Cat headcover made for this putter only and is paired with an exotic leather Gripmaster grip.

The ‘To The Moon’ Betti Boy headcover is the latest over from Bettinardi and features the Betti Boy riding the rocket to the moon stitched stitch across the front. The saying ‘To the Moon’ is on one side of the cover, with the moon stitched in glow-in-the-dark thread with stars across the cover.

The Limited 1/5 QB6 Wall St. Gangster Fat Cat Putter is available in The Hive today at 8 AM CT, while the Betti Boy headcovers drop today at 10 AM CT.

Pros are just like us: Putting practice at the 2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational

Published

on

The great equalizer in the game of golf is putting, and just like every other golfer that plays the game, PGA Tour players are always working to improve their work with the flatstick.

Much like the short game, putting does not require brute strength and generally comes down to simple technique and repeatability. This week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, we spotted a lot of pros on the practice green working hard with all types of training aids trying to improve on just that.

Bryson’s GC Quad meases 400-yard drives and 3-foot putts.

Spieth is always grinding with his favorite Scotty Cameron.

You don’t get to be the 16th ranked player in the world like Matt Fitzpatrick without working hard on your putting.

Kevin Kisner spotted working on core stability

Shane Lowry using the popular “gate” drill

Ian Poulter has been recently searching for a putter—and that pile behind him indicates he’s still looking.

Poulter was even spotted checking in with others around the green

Jason Dufner using the “bellied wedge drill” to help level out his stroke and improve contact.

The Putting Arc is a classic training aid that we continue to see players utilize

The Pelz trainer continues to be one of the most popular tools on tour
