  1. Legend is that it served as Bobby Jones’s inspiration for 12. I’m sure many other courses have similar lore… beautiful golf hole either way!
  2. 1. Done 2. Done 3. Rockville, MD 4. Yes - roughly 15 years ago for my first ‘real’ set of irons. 5. Wedges are the area that I would benefit most from I believe!
  3. 1. City, State? Chevy Chase, MD2. Handicap? 9.13. Current Iron set? PING i210 - Project X 6.54. Are you right-handed or left-handed? Right5. Why do you want to review the Takomo 201 irons? It is a beautiful iron and I would love to get the opportunity to try a boutique brand. It is really exciting for me that there are more and more options on the market, particularly for classic forged irons, but I’ve never been able to try any since most are DTC and hard to find to demo. 6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? It would be my pleasure!
  4. Follow Fujikura Golf on Instagram, @fujikuragolf Done! - Have you hit a Ventus shaft yet? What model? No, I have never had the chance to! - What Ventus TX shaft do you want to win? Ventus Red 6TX - What club in your bag would a Ventus TX go in? Driver - Taylormade SIM 8*
  5. PING is super vigilant about preventing any retail sales below MRSP. They bring the hammer down on any seller who is caught violating this, whether it’s a big box or a small pro shop. Look at any website- all sales/coupons will exclude PING clubs. I think this helps boost resale values a bit since there is little/no discounted new product to compete with.

  7. How long have you been developing this line that incorporates the 3D printing tech? Any unexpected impacts on the sound/feel that needed to be worked through during the prototyping process?
