Are forgiving irons or a forgiving driver more important to lower scores? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been having a deep discussion on which section of the bag it is more important to have forgiveness. WRXer ‘Mvhoffman’ kicks off the thread by asking for a generalized opinion on the subject, saying

“Is it more important to have more forgiving irons/wedges or more forgiving Driver/Woods? What would lower scores, in your opinion? 

I personally think that there are not enough people playing the more forgiving/playable drivers/woods, and that is driving up scores. I think that there is more of a consequence with hitting less forgiving “woods” than irons simply because of length of club/swing/speed/dispersion.”

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.

  • jcvandamme: “For my own game, I think the forgiving driver is more important. I’m trying to find something a little more forgiving to replace my G400 LST because I don’t like the results I get from mishits. With the courses I play, it’s much easier for me to shoot better scores when I’m in play off the tee as opposed to hitting 3 off the tee or punching out from the trees and trying to get up and down from 60 yards to save par.”
  • TiScape: “Reading threads here for quite a while now. I’d say the general consensus is that “forgiving” clubs will most likely only save a player a couple strokes a round. And then go on to say “a bad swing is a bad swing”. As long as the specs of the clubs fit you. I’d tend to agree.”
  • mogc60: “Driver, wedge, putter! The rest is just fluff really. Those three clubs are by far the most important to playing good golf. Get those right, and your game will never be that far off. For the record, I first heard that from a 7 time tour winner. Driver over irons any day. It sets up everything.”
  • LeoLeo99: “Looking at the pros, they play forgiving drivers and a forgiving long iron or two and not so forgiving short and mid irons.”

    Forgiven for what? Hit the range and dig it out of the dirt like men.

  • thebishop: “Wow. Those look really good. And the transition is complete now. We’ve gone from visible tech to hiding it all under the hood.”
  • Matty01984: “They look so so good! The thing that I always struggled with when it came to the original T100 was the look at the back. I got over it because they quite simply look incredible behind the ball, but Titleist has taken that up a notch with how they look.”
  • mtnbiker5: “Clean…”

Published

At GolfWRX, we love golf, plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment of the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball. It even allows us to share another thing we all love – buy and selling equipment.

Currently, in our GolfWRX buy/sell/trade (BST) forum, there is a listing for a Honma TW-PT blade putter. ($325)

From the seller (@nova6868): “You may recognize this putter if you follow Mike Malaska, it’s the same one he rolls. This is Honma’s take on the milled Anser 2 design.

– Soft Stainless SUS303

– Ported neck to save weight

– Tungsten weights added to the sole to increase MOI and forgiveness

– Headweight is 360 grams

– 34 inches, I can add 1″ extension if you want 35

– Stock grip still in plastic, never used

– Stock headcover, never used

– Putter is new, never been outside. Mint/New condition as you can see. These were $450 brand new and I don’t think you can even buy them anymore.”

To check out the full listing in our BST forum, head through the link: Honma TW-PT blade putter
