Gap in your game: part 4
In our ‘gap in your game’ series, we’ve discussed starting strong with your driver and flourishing finishes with your putter. Now it’s time to bridge the two…
As you’ll see on TV this weekend, Whistling Straits is a brutal course. The winds off Lake Michigan will wreak havoc with any iron shots that aren’t hit with conviction, so confidence will be key for players on both sides… hey, that’s something we all have in common!
That’s why we want irons that inspire confidence from the moment we stand over the ball through to impact, which is exactly what Mizuno’s JPX921 Hot Metal irons offer. There’s no promise that you’ll conquer Whistling Straits and lift the Ryder Cup, but you will do better in the Monthly Medal.
Looking down on the world-renowned appearance of Mizuno irons gives you so much confidence at address, while the Stability Frame – using perimeter weighting with a toe bias – does exactly what the name suggests; gives you stability through impact and, as a result, more control. That all adds up to confident, controlled ball-striking wherever you’re playing.
However, if you want a little bit more of what the pros would call ‘workability’ (being able to shape your shots) then the more compact Hot Metal Pro irons might be a nifty alternative. In fact, you could even combine the two throughout your set - something we'd be more than happy to help with!
