Cognizant Classic in The Palm Beaches

PGA National (Champion Course)



Mizuno JPX923 Forged

Why We Like It

If these irons took human form, they might just give Patrick Dempsey a run for “Sexiest Man Alive.” Just like with the actor, there’s more here than good looks. The speed on this iron comes from the thinnest face on a forged iron in the company’s history—just 2.2 millimeters thick. The distance chase doesn’t stop there. Micro-slots in the sole cavity (wider in the 4- through 6-irons and slightly narrower in the 7-iron to smooth the transition to the scoring clubs) provide plenty of heat.

Characteristics

  • Micro-slots in the long and middle irons deliver distance.
  • Carbon steel in the 8-iron through wedges promotes control.
  • A notch in the club’s perimeter assists sound.
  • 7-iron: 30 degrees; PW: 44 degrees

Highlights

  • Top 5 best sound/feel players-distance irons, middle-handicaps

Why Impact Is Critical to Your Iron Play

Consistent shot shape requires one skill above all others: the ability to make flush contact with the ball. It’s the No. 1 fundamental in golf, and without it, this game can be an eternal mystery. Here, Sean Hogan, one of Golf Digest’s Best Teachers in Florida, helps you improve your impact from tee to green.
