Golf Discount’s 2015 Super Game Improvement Irons Guide By Bob Gomavitz Not fully knowing what to expect from this category of irons, I was surprisingly floored by some of the results.

Golf Discount’s 2015 Game Improvement Irons Guide By Bob Gomavitz A very good player told me that his game improved even more when he switched from Players Cavity Back irons to Game Improvement irons. Iron play was my weakness, so 3 years ago I made the switch too, and have not looked back since. Since I play Game Improvement irons, I could not wait to test out the latest offerings.

Growing up in a blade era (the ‘70s), I have a good sense of how a blade should look, feel and play, even though I have not played a…

4

Most beginners tend to be a bit inconsistent when it comes to how flush they hit the ball. Beginners often hit a little bit behind the golf ball, causing a fat or “chunky” shot, where the iron digs into the ground a little bit before it gets to the ball, causing grass to get in between the ball and the face of the club. The result is a shot that comes up very short. Does this sound familiar? To remedy this situation, “Super” Game Improvement Irons are oversized, and will have a wider sole (the bottom of the club) that…
