The New Crossovers

Fus­ing clas­sic irons with big-time tech.

Golf Digest (Malaysia) - - Contents - BY MIKE STACHURA

The hard­est clubs to de­sign in golf? You’re look­ing at them. These irons have the clas­sic com­pact shape that bet­ter play­ers pre­fer, but with tech­nol­ogy for for­give­ness (mul­ti­ple ma­te­ri­als) and dis­tance (thin-face in­serts) that make them playable for the rest of us. This mar­riage of old and new tech­nol­ogy has caught the at­ten­tion of the world’s best: About nine in 10 play­ers on the PGA Tour use some form of cav­i­ty­back or hol­low iron for at least part of their iron set. “We’re still go­ing to chock it full of as much tech­nol­ogy as we can,” Mizuno’s Chris Voshall says. “But the pri­or­ity is the pack­age it’s in, not just the tech­nol­ogy it of­fers.” Here are four new irons that might make us look bet­ter than we are.
