The best older Titleist irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing older Titleist irons. WRXer ‘Forecorkens44’ has a $200 budget and wants to hear from fellow members who 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.

  • cgasucks: “It really depends on whether you want a cast or forged iron. Pre early 2000s Titleist made cast irons for the retail mass market (unless you were Tiger); since I’m biased I prefer the 990s since I think they have a better feel than the 962s. When Titleist started to offer forged irons regularly, the 680s were quite the cult classic, so much so that they re-released them in very limited numbers some years ago. To meet your budget, it will have to be a cast iron.”
  • iknowbagu: “990, and it’s not close.”
  • stevopagolf: “The original Titleist DCI Black were outstanding in the day!”
  • darkman8: “Loved my 981’s but nothing compared to my set of 690 mbs. Never should have sold them years ago! Ughh.”

WITB Time Machine: Tiger Woods, 2017 Hero World Challenge

Published

on

Following a 10-month layoff and his then-fourth back surgery, Tiger Woods teed it up at the 2017 Hero World Challenge. Tiger finished 9th in the event, 10 strokes behind Rickie Fowler, but the 15-time major champion also gave fans some glimpses of his former dominance, including this majestic 3-wood approach shot from 271 yards out on a par 5:

He also had an amazing chip in for birdie on the 17th hole:

Tiger’s driver was also excellent that week, and his overall stats were pretty impressive in his second round: Woods hit 9 of 13 fairways, 13 of 18 greens and 27 putts. 31-37=68.

Woods was expected to return to action at this week’s competition — making his first start since The Open Championship in July where he missed the cut. However, he announced Monday he was withdrawing owing to plantar fasciitis in his right foot.
