Where this club dif­fers sig­nif­i­cantly from a driv­ing-iron is the height of the tra­jec­tory. The Cross­over of­fers a higher flight, but one that is still lower than a hy­brid of the same loft. It of­fers much higher lev­els of for­give­ness than a long-iron or drivin­g­iron and, as a re­sult, golfers of dif­fer­ent abil­i­ties could em­ploy one with suc­cess. It may also solve the prob­lem for golfers who don’t hit their lon­girons far or ac­cu­rately enough, or miss with their hy­brid to the left. Dis­tance was cer­tainly im­pres­sive. We tested the 21° Cross­over and ex­pe­ri­enced hy­brid­like yardage on a strong tra­jec­tory. The 4-Cross­over should still give you the ex­tra dis­tance, while be­ing more user­friendly. The Cross­over is ver­sa­tile too – the tall face makes it playable off the tee while the rel­a­tively low spin means it ex­cels in the wind. Con­sider this Some may pre­fer less off­set, while oth­ers just won’t be able to find a place for it in their bag.

VER­DICT While bet­ter play­ers will grav­i­tate to­wards it, the fact that it com­bines the best at­tributes of a hy­brid and lon­g­iron means that mid-hand­i­cap­pers should also con­sider giv­ing it a go.
