If you haven't retired your 1-iron and replaced it with new utility irons such as the Titanist's new U500, you're missing out
Some believe that only God can kill 1-iron. I can't go too deep into that age-old adage, but I would say without a doubt, the longer ones — especially 1 — ironically, are harder to hit.
If you still have one of those bad boys in your bag, then you are seriously making this difficult game, which is very difficult for you. You even have equipment manufacturers who are constantly trying to make it a little easier for you with the help of technology and manufacture utility and driving irons.
"There are a lot of golfers out there who don't want to play hybrids, but are looking for such a performance at the long end of their iron sets," said Josh Tall, vice president of Titleist Golf Clubs. "They want to be able to launch it high and away, they want to be able to shape the shot, they want to be able to get it close to the hole – they want to do it with an iron in their hands. "
This makes sense to a lot of us, but I know that there are some skeptics out there who are reluctant to let go of their trusty 1-iron. So what better to do than to hush critics? We fitted a 1-iron head with a new utility iron. And let us say, the results speak for themselves. After watching the video, Stop by your local GOLFTEC, and we'll fit you in To convert your now, trivial 1-iron into the iron with the right utility.
