Difference between Tommy Armour 845 and 855

When comparing the original 845 to the original 855, the 855 is slightly larger. The 855 was offered in two offset options. The regular 855 had the same offset as the 845, but they also offered a reduced offset version. The reduced offset had less offset in the 1-6 iron, as I recall. If you can find them, this would be the model you're looking for.

 

It is also important to remember that Tommy Armour "re-issued" the 845 with several variations as they tried to recapture market share. Several were from the same molds, but they also used the 845 label on irons that were of different designs.

I have the similar question. I noticed some 855s has a yellow cycle and some has a black cycle on the back of the clubs. which one would have less offset? Thanks.

 

As I recall, the black was the less offset model. Actually, I liked the 855s a little better because of the finish and slightly larger head, but as ac130nav said, they never seemed to catch on like the 845s.

can anyone confirm this: [b]less[/b] offset, [b]larger[/b] clubhead
[/quote]

I can confirm those two traits and a serious negative. They fouled up the bounce angles on the short irons. An associate of mine, a Champions Tour major winner told me this. Subsequently, they lost most of their tour players from both tours.

I remember the 855s having bigger heads, but not sure about the offset. I think the offset was pretty close on both.

You are correct that the 855 had a bigger head. I missed that query. As for the offset, I am not quite certain.

      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.
