2. ANDREW JUDKINS
Andrew’s problem was two clubs fulfilling a similar role – a 21˚ hybrid and a 23˚ utility iron. His longest iron was a 5-iron, so I wanted to simplify the gap between that and his highlaunching 3-wood. First, we tried a GAPR Hi 3, but that didn’t suit Andrew’s eye, so again, we ended up with a GAPR Mid 4. He was creating a bit more ball speed with a higher launch and less spin than both his current clubs, and that yielded 16 yards more distance.
Andrew’s on-course feedback
When GAPR was released it caught my attention because, as a senior golfer with a deliberate swing speed, I struggle with longirons and can’t seem to hit hybrids consistently. First use at the driving range confirmed Matt’s fitting was spot on. I found it very easy to hit, with lots of speed off the face and a penetrating ball flight – ideal for short par 4s and the links courses I play. It has become a go-to club and I’m considering adding a lower-lofted GAPR Mid.
