Iron dilemma

It’s just a number on the bottom of the club. If you’re still getting enough height who cares if it’s a 7 or 6 iron. some irons go farther because of low cg/low spin. Im a low spin player so im going with more traditional lofts which are a bit shorter but I feel I have more control coming into greens.

Why can I not just accept that fact and hit the 7 rather than the 8?

 

Reality check: Pick up the yardage with an accurate driver, a decent fairway wood or two (maybe 4W + 7W rather than strong 3W?) and a bridge hybrid. Use irons for accuracy.

 

If you hold the fairway off the tee, and have irons that you "Hit well ,solid" you will score well! (What a concept! 😵)

What's In The Bag (Summary as of October 2021, post-MAX changeover)

 

Driver:  Tour Edge EXS 10.5°, set 9.5°; weights neutral   ||  FWs:  Calla Rogue 4W + 7W

Hybrid:  Calla Big Bertha OS 4H at 22°  ||  Irons:  Calla Mavrik MAX 5i-PW

Wedges*:  Calla MD3: 48°... MD4: 54°, 58° ||  Putter: Ping Sigma G Tyne (face-balanced) + Evnroll Gravity Grip

Ball: 1. Srixon Q-Star Tour / 2. Calla SuperHot (Orange preferred)  ||  Bag: Sun Mountain Three 5 stand bag

For details see:  Pending (need protocol to embed file list).

     * MD4 54°/10 S-Grind replaced MD3 54°/12 W-Grind.

I agree with Jim, it's just a number stamped on the bottom of the club.  Those of us on the upper end of the age spectrum remember when a 7 iron loft was between 32 and 34.5 degs.  Those are 8 iron numbers today.  Who cares if it's going in the correct direction most of the time.

Just take the sharpie out and write what ever number you want on the bottom of the club, it's 100% irrelevant...

Rather than numbers, give each club a name. Then you know "Steve" goes 140 yards, while "Jose" goes 160. 

Gad! I love this.

“ well it was a 3/4 Steve with a little fade tail “.

Hey, if you want, I'll fill in the numbers on the soles with a tig welder. Get some weight added, introduce a little mystery to the bag lol

Its not too late to give that putter of yours a dudes name. "I put a good stroke on Bruce and he treats me good".
