Moving from blades to P790s…Lazy? Will my scores go down? – GolfWRXers discuss



In our forums, our members have been reacting to a topic surrounding moving away from blade irons. WRXer ‘TGolfer66’ kicks off the thread, saying:

“After trying a buddy’s P790s, I’m thinking of moving from Mizuno blades to P790s. I have plenty of distance and still play decent (4ish hcp), so I figure why not make golf easier? Am I just being lazy, or are others doing this?”

And our members have been responding in their numbers.

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.

  • mudmarlin: “I bet his scores do go down. You barely miss the sweet spot with a blade your short of the green, with a more forgiving club your on and putting for birdie. As soon as I went back to my 63s, my scores went down a few strokes. Easier to make birdies when you’re putting instead of chipping.”
  • tets: “I also think scores won’t improve. People who say mis-hits will end up way short, but that may be short of the deep bunker green side, where the forgiving club is plugged under the lip. I’m thinking of going the opposite way. I’m a +1 and got a set of Mizuno Pro 225s, thinking I can use the help. I’ve played a couple of times with them now, and I miss the thin sole of blades. Stay tuned; they may be on the BST forum soon.”
  • MtlJeff: “It depends on the type, of course, you play IMO. As a 4 you are probably a decent striker. If you’re hitting a lot of 4 and 5 irons, I could see new irons making a difference. If you’re mostly hitting 7-PW it likely won’t change much.”
  • lefthack: “Play what you enjoy hitting. That’s really all that matters.”

    I’m now 60 and changed from my blade I3 ping irons to ping 700 Irons. Found the short irons have less distance, and have gained distance with the long irons. My dispersion with the short irons has improved. I’m very pleased.

    It has been proven time and again that when you go from blades to game enhancement irons, you WILL be on the tour within 6 months. Now go out and buy up those clubs folks. Do it. NOW!!!!!

SPOTTED: New Titleist 2023 T-Series irons at the Memorial Tournament (T-100, T-150, T-200, T-350 and U-505)



On Monday at the 2023 Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village, we spotted five new Titleist iron models, including new T-100, T-150, T-200, T-350 and U-505 irons for 2023.

Since the irons are just now becoming available for PGA Tour players to test, Titleist is not yet providing information on design, technological improvements, or retail details.

However, is on site this week to get a first look at the irons, and observe initial testing sessions. We’ll update you with PGA Tour player feedback and first reactions later in the week.

For now, we have photos of each new Titleist iron model below – each model appears to have both a chrome version and a black version available for the launch. More photos of the entire lineup can be found in our GolfWRX Forums here.
