You start 4 new threads in 4 months, each one entitled "Best irons I've ever played"

I've made more equipment changes (5) this year than I have rounds played (1)

When you check out everyone else’s gear at the range and you can identify  absolutely everything AND you then arrogantly categorize their abilities based on this.

I seem to have developed a form of golf club paranoia during our most recent lock down (UK) 

 

Not hitting balls / playing golf has me doubting every bit of kit in the bag 

 

Are my shafts too stiff, actually maybe they're too soft, do I need three wedges or four, should I change to a different type of grip, maybe I need a more forgiving four iron, is my hybrid too old, why did I match my driver & 3 wood shafts

 

Its been a difficult few months & I think its turned me in to a Golfwrx'r....Send help 😂

😂 fortunately I've never been tempted by the rusted look 

 

If I had you can guarantee I will have rusted my current clubs, massively regretted it and got new ones.... followed by repeating the same mistake again!

Figured if perimeter weighting works to stabilize drivers it will certainly help prevent any egg carton droppage. 

Movable weight technology has many applications!

I go the other way, I take the eggs from the outside to keep more mass behind the sweet spot (and to prevent the outside of the carton to sag and risk droppage).  I think of the egg carton more like a putter, not so much as a driver...

so is the conclusion that the arrangement of the eggs should be determined by how far you’re going to be moving the eggs? 😂

When you get a good deal on some iron shaft pulls, they get delivered (today), and you don't even have any iron heads you plan on using them with.

While I don’t buy iron shaft pulls (too much risk with BBTG differences & with graphite, potential for damage), I have also bought sets of iron shafts with no heads to match.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
