Okay, here is a place for the Golfers to talk about tournaments, clubs, swing help or thoughts.

Today is the Players Championship, which I think ought to be the 5th Major. Largest pot in the PGA. The daunting 17th, which seems to bring excitement every year. At least we will get to see Sergio blow up yet again.

I am ready to see some water balls!

I love blades , grew up playing McGregor Muirfield 20th irons I hate the fact I don't play enough to be consistent with them anymore and have to use cavity muscle irons the AP2 are ok but feel is just not the same.

Those PXGs look nice, Never even heard of Dartgods new sticks before but those look nice as well.

Just a tip but I wouldn’t buy pxg. It’s pricey and I just wasn’t overly impressed.

I’ve always been a titleist guy but the ping blades and mizuno blades are more bang for your buck

IMO

Yep. Once I'm setup my swing thoughts are pretty simple.
1 Keep weight inside of right leg
2. Keep left arm as straight as possible
3. Strong left grip
4. Lastly focus on how close to the center of the club face I'm going to strike the ball.

I never tried the PXG but I Had few sets of Mizunos and there were the best feeling clubs around at the time, The AP2 are a nice performing club but well hit balls still don't feel as nice as the Mizuno forged.

I tried Ping blades back in the day when I was a 2 handicap. I wasn't good enough I didn't think and went back to players irons. I did love how they performed out of heavy rough. The smaller faces of blades make them cut thru the rough like butter

Have you ever tried a mix? Say cavity backs for 4 iron to 6 iron, blades from 7iron to PW? I've never been a great long iron player. I just cant hit them straight and hook them more than any club in the bag but maybe thats because everything is offset. My strength in my game is mid irons so I love blades for 7i to Wedge.

BTW, why do they make irons automatically offset? It drives me nuts. No one under a 12 handicap wants offset.

Never tried a mix but I assume it would make sense, I don't hit a high ball so long irons are not my strong suit not sure any amateur hits them well , I hti a pretty mean 2 iron off the tee on short par fours until I discovered hyrbids but I don't think i'm ready for 3-5 hyrbids just yet, and I concur on offset clubs drives me nuts.

My dad uses a full set of mizuno blades and does ok at 73 , shot his age(par 70) this year, but he is like me and would rather play with what he likes and struggle rather than go full game improvement.
