Best driving iron of all time – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing driving irons. WRXer ‘Kyengtae3’ is on the hunt for a driving iron and isn’t interested in the latest or fanciest but only the best, saying

“Currently using a Titleist 712U 3-Iron (21*) and want to look for some more like that driving iron but want like a 2 or even willing to a 1 iron.

I’m not looking for the newest or the fanciest technology, just want to know what the best driving iron of all time is.”

And our members have been sharing what they feel are the best driving irons ever released.

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.

  • ashpga: “Nike Vapor Fly Pro.”
  • MPAndreassi: “There’s not going to be a consensus as one is best for everyone. The Gapr Lo is pretty similar to the SIM UDI, which I found to be very good. The Titleist stuff, U500 and U510, seem to be well received here.”
  • jcvanndamme: “I have a Callaway X-Tour utility that I bought off a previous pro at my home course. It even has an AD-DI shaft in it. I don’t swing fast enough to get much out of it now, but it’s a club that I’ll never get rid of.”
  • golfinbrand: “I’m still gaming the Ping Rapture DI. It is the oldest club in my bag – 7 years. Keep debating a hybrid, but can’t seem to find anything better.”

Valspar Championship Tour Truck Report: DJ sticking with new flatstick, Kisner ditches the armlock

Published

on

With little margin for error at the Copperhead Course this week, it’s not surprising to see few major changes from the participants in this edition of the Valspar Championship.

That said, we’re still spotting plenty of interesting things in Florida, including the apparent end of Kevin Kisner’s armlock experiment and Dustin Johnson sticking with a surprise putter switch he made in the final round of the RBC Heritage.

Remember, you can check out all our photos from the Valspar here!

Titleist

Viktor Hovland is putting a 2021 Pro V1 in play after using it last week at the Zurich Classic. According to Titleist, he’s seeing higher ball speed with the driver and more control into the green.

Denny McCarthy is testing a TSi2 driver (10 degrees). He’s seeing more speed and better spin control.

Roger Sloan is testing a U500 4-iron, which he finds easy to launch and is able to work it both ways.

Byeong-Hun An put a Fujikura Motore X F3 6 X in his TSi3 driver.

Staffer Jimmy Walker tested a L.A.B. Blade putter before returning to this Scotty Cameron.

Callaway

Kevin Kisner moved from the armlock to a “very stable and consistent” 2-Ball Ten putter with a Red Stroke Lab double-bend shaft. SuperStroke Traxion 2.0 Tour grip. 34.25 inches. 3.5 degrees of loft.

Grayson Murray is testing a Graphite Design Tour AD DI 9 X in a Mavrik Sub Zero 7-wood.

New to us since we last saw him, Phil Mickelson is going with a Callaway PM Grind ’19 “Raw” (52, 58, 64) setup.  

TaylorMade

After putting it into play for the final round of the RBC Heritage, it looks like Dustin Johnson is sticking with a new TaylorMade Brandon 1 prototype putter and LA golf graphite putter shaft. If this putter seems familiar, it’s because we saw Tommy Fleetwood put something very similar into play a couple of weeks ago too (pictured below in photo from TaylorMade).

Ping

Andrew Putnam is testing a Fujikura Ventus Red 6 X shaft in his driver.

Scottie Scheffler (not a staffer) is decreasing loft in his Ping G425 LST driver.

PXG

James Hahn tested a Cobra RadSpeed driver with a prototype Aldila shaft.

SEG

Scott PUREd KBS C-Taper 125 Custom Black shafts for Gary Woodland and Project X 6.5 shafts for Jordan Spieth (3-PW, 6.0 in wedges).

Free agents/others

Justin Rose was spotted testing a number of grips.

Chris Kirk is testing a Cobra RadSpeed driver with a Mitsubishi 1K shaft.

Both Brendon Todd and Rory Sabbatini are testing Mitsubishi MMT iron shafts.

William McGirt is testing a Graphite Design Tour AD DI HB 95 S shaft in a Callaway Apex Hybrid.
