WHAT IT DOES: These irons use the same five-step forging process as the CB/MB set, but they are very different clubs and a departure from last year’s model. The previous King Tour used a metal-injection-molding (MIM) process to create the clubhead, but that’s no longer the case. Instead, the forging process delivers the same consistency as MIM while delivering a better feel. The milled grooves are manufactured to a precise tolerance that reduces the variability on the groove shape. The upshot is that the grooves can be produced closer to the USGA limit. A channel behind the hitting zone saves discretionary weight higher in the clubhead, moving it lower and to the heel and toe area. That channel is then filled with a thermoplastic urethane to keep the feel just right.
WHY WE LIKE IT: It’s easy to get caught up in metallurgy and chemistry, but some of the details that really stand out include shortened blade lengths based on player feedback and a progressive but minimal offset look at address. A shorter hosel length helps bring the spin down, too, reducing the tendency for shots to balloon. In short, this is a players iron that an everyday player can actually hit. Read more>>

From the Manufacturer
The KING TOUR irons blend soft feel and playability with enhanced distance and forgiveness. Using a 5-step forged multi-material construction like the CB/MB irons, the TOUR model features an aluminum medallion, and a TPU insert in the back cavity for improved feel, forgiveness and launch conditions on off center hits. The shaping of the TOUR irons is progressively more compact than the KING™ Forged TEC model, featuring a thinner topline and reduced offset for improved workability, and 2 degree weaker lofts for distance control.
