U For Unreal
I have not always been the best long iron player but I do seem to feel more comfortable with the long irons more so than the hybrids which may sound strange to many. So I was quite excited to meet in the middle this week and take out the new Titleist U500 Hybrid iron and see how it went.
While they are branded Hybrids they are actually marketed as part of the “Iron” family so I was quite interested to see what the results said..more so that the ads. Now Tour Player and our friend Michael Sim, has actually replaced his 3 wood with one of these hybrid irons and speaks extremely high of them so the evidence was compelling. It was now left to its ultimate test…..my awesome power game.
The heads look similar to a long iron but a new Tungsten weight in the heel and toe to increase the size of the sweet spot and increase the launch angle, in fact a couple of thin shots I hit seemed to go as well as the couple I flushed which was very helpful in the tighter winter lies. With the lack of rain, they may be very helpful in the bare lies of summer as well.
