Cognizant Classic in The Palm Beaches

PGA National (Champion Course)



Why We Like It

Everyday golfers can probably learn more about what type of clubs to play by looking at what LPGA Tour players are using instead of PGA Tour stars, which is why this iron might be worth considering. Proto-Concept designed these irons for Lydia Ko, using her input as its roadmap. The result is a sleeker shape with more mass behind the impact zone compared to previous Proto-Concept irons for a more satisfying look and feel. The use of a Chromoly steel face insert—with variable thicknesses in the impact area—helps produces the ideal trajectory.

Characteristics

  • An interior slot behind the face increases rebound at impact.
  • The set starts at the 5-iron, consistent with the set makeup of many LPGA Tour players.
  • 7-iron: 32 degrees, PW: 45 degrees

Highlights

  • Top 5 best-looking players-distance irons, low-handicaps
  • Top 5 highest-flying players-distance irons, low-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.
