Tour Edge Hot Launch E524

Why We Like It

The idea of super-game-improvement-irons started with helping average golfers, but some clubs in this category fail to commit to that goal. Rather than skimping on the help, this iron embraces the concept fully. A revised design led to a wider front-to-back length, a thinner topline and more weight lower inside the hollow clubhead. The offset is aggressive but serves the purpose of scaling back those wicked slices higher-handicappers often battle. The lofts are a little weaker than other Tour Edge irons because this player needs more help getting the ball in the air compared to the extra yards that might come from stronger lofts.

Characteristics

  • Aldila Ascent PL (graphite) and True Temper Elevate 95 (steel) are stock shafts.
  • The sole has a raised mass area in the rear of the clubhead to reduce drag at impact.
  • Combo sets are available for a $100 upcharge (2 hybrids).
  • 7-iron: 32 degrees; PW: 44 degrees

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.
