Cognizant Classic in The Palm Beaches

PGA National (Champion Course)



Why We Like It

Some think super-game-improvement irons are just for players who swing over the top. Some of this thinking can be attributed to the bulky designs. Those who need the help of a SGI iron but still want to look like they have game should give this one a look. The relatively sleek appearance hides the horsepower. Taking weight out of the upper back of the face (where few golfers hit the ball) lowers the center of gravity for better launch. Channels behind the face reduce weight and increase the compression of the ball and ensuing rebound for extra yards.

Characteristics

  • New EX-E04 shaft with high modulus graphite increases snapback for more clubhead speed.
  • Weight reduction enlarges the sweet spot by 10 percent, ensuring maximum response off the face.
  • 7-iron: 29 degrees; PW: 43 degrees

Highlights

  • Top 5 softest super-game-improvement irons, high-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.
