Most forgiving driving iron without much offset – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing driving irons. WRXer ‘Gentles’ is on the hunt for the biggest and most forgiving driving irons that don’t have much offset, and our members have been sharing their best picks 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.

  • Boogeyman: “SIM DHY has very little offset and is definitely on the bigger side. Maybe even too big for your liking? It’s basically the replacement for GAPR Mid without adjustability but with much-improved looks and feels”
  • Bunkersarebigcups: “U510 is as big and forgiving as it gets. Offset is not minimal but less than the Crossover for sure.”
  • cflo2382: “The New Level NLU-01 might be a good option. They removed a lot of offset compared to their first utility (4995HB). Fantastic feel too.”
  • Spankopotamusredux: “GAPR is money. Like it better than both the Srixon and the Titleist for my game. I think it’s quite an underrated club. Can be found new old stock for $100 or less.”

2021 GolfWRX Holiday Gift Guide: Golf gifts for the Purist

Published

on

It’s that time of year again, GolfWRX members, the moment we start filling our wish lists with the golf gear we want this holiday season.

The GolfWRX Holiday Gift Guide was created to ensure that our readers give (and hopefully receive) the very best golf gifts on the planet. These gift ideas will suit any budget, and each item was hand-picked by our staff.

In an effort to provide more value and tailored recommendations, we’re targeting “the purist,” “the gearhead,” “the value seeker,” “the golfer looking to get better,” “the clothes horse,” and “the big spender.”

You know the purist by his/her love forged irons, natural fibers, and Golden Age golf courses.

Here are our best recommendations for “the purist” in your life.

The Making of Pacific Dunes by Tom Doak – $50

In The Making of Pacific Dunes, Doak shares his experience in building the second course at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. Doak recounts his journey from the first day, explaining how he found each hole and put the routing together, and what his crew did and didn’t do to build this “distractingly beautiful and unfailingly challenging golf course.”

Artisan Wedges – $300 each

As seen in the bag of the likes of Abraham Ancer on tour, Artisan wedges are handcrafted to fit the profile of each individual and are a must-have for all golf purists.

Wedges start at $300 each for a Satin raw finish, standard Dynamic Gold shaft and standard Tour Velvet grip, with a trip to Texas required for the fitting process which includes a morning or afternoon hitting balls with the Artisan team so that they can understand your short game in order to truly customize each wedge to your game.

Book here.

Titleist Pro V1, Pro V1x: $49.95

The No. 1 ball in golf, yes. Most widely played on the PGA Tour by a wide margin, yes — no doubt the performance of the Titleist Pro V1 is best-in-class. But for the purist, there’s nothing in the golf ball space quite so iconic as the “Titleist” script stamped on the Pro V1. 

Buy here.

Fore Ewe Headcover – $55

Purists will love For Ewe’s headcovers, which are all made from start to finish in Portland, Oregon using 100 percent wool yarn. All of the yarn is spun and double waxed to ensure that it knits smoothly and lasts, while each cone is skein dyed to make sure the colors are rich and consistent.

This holiday-themed set features a charcoal, dark red, and white color scheme with the covers starting from $55.

Buy here.

8″ Leather Mac Mackenzie Bag – $1,055

No purists collection is complete without a Mackenzie bag. The 8″ Leather Mac is made from navy leather, trimmed in red and white leather. The bag features a white & red split bottom and has an 8” opening with just the solo pocket.

Buy here.

The Golfer’s Journal: $75/year

Do you subscribe to The Golfer’s Journal? If you consider yourself a purist, it’s surprising if you don’t. And if you’re buying a gift for the purist in your life, TGJ is the perfect pick for superb reading material, best-in-the-golf-media photography, and of course, as a coffee table adornment that signals your aesthetic sensibilities are as high as your appreciation for our maddening game.

Buy here.

National Custom Works custom forged irons – Varies

Hand-ground from Japanese forgings by the legendary Don White, NCW’s entirely made-to-order blades have quickly become the purist’s gold — or steel — standard. And they’re not just for show; these things perform, as evidenced by Jason Dufner putting a set in play in 2018.
