Why can't I hit my new irons to a consistent distance?
New member here. 15 handicap. Good with irons but tend to hit off the toe when I mishit.
I recently upgraded from 20 year old Taylor Made 360 irons to a set of custom built Callaway Apex 19 Forged irons. Old irons were traditional cavity back. New irons are categorized as players distance irons. Both have the same fit.
My new 3 iron will go 230 yards or 130 yards and not even make it far enough to reach the fairway. My new 7 iron will typically go 160 yards but will often will fly 175 yards or drop out of the air at 120 yards. I can't control the distances of my new irons and I spent a fortune custom fitting them to my swing. Why is this happening? This was never an issue with my old irons. A bad hit would go 10-20% shorter but I never had balls fly over the green or completely fall out of the air. What is going on with my new equipment?
