The Up­shot

Golf World (UK) - - The Spin -

It prob­a­bly hasn’t hap­pened be­fore, but the bot­tom line is that there isn’t a huge amount to choose be­tween them. There wasn’t a tester in the team who wouldn’t have been smil­ing if any one of these irons had sud­denly found their way into their bags.

In many cases, the dif­fer­ences were more cos­metic and per­sonal rather than per­for­mance re­lated. Some launched the ball higher, but only by a few de­grees. Some went fur­ther, but only by a yard or two.

If there was a long­est then it proved to be the Call­away Steel­head XR, which the ev­i­dence showed was also the most for­giv­ing. A dom­i­nant per­for­mance sta­tis­ti­cally, but not one that was re­flected in the per­sonal pref­er­ences of the team.
