At longlast TaylorMade finally unveiled their scotty cameron studio select. TaylorMade'slatest expansion to the overwhelmingly popular R11 line was to create an ironset that was engineered for players who appreciate the shape and refinement ofa tour-grade iron but need the help of technology to launch the ball high,straight, and long with less effort, regardless of handicap. Already tested asa forgiving and easy to hit club. The titleist scotty cameron studio select aredefinitely not blades or a set of tour only clubs. Designed with moreforgiveness in mind they appeal to a much larger audience. On the heels of Ping's big announcement for their new clubs for nextseason I’m sure was no coincidence.
Theone-piece stainless steel cast heads for titleist712 ap2 irons boast a thin, lightweight face design like theBurner 2.0. The weight removed from the clubface has been shifted low and backto create a higher launch angle, faster ball speed, increased distance and moreforgiveness. The result is comparable launch, ball flight and length to theBurner 2.0, as well as 15-yard distance gaps between clubs.
The titleistap2 irons' short irons have a shallow undercut channel between theface and rear to control feel and CG location, the mid-irons have a moderateundercut, and the long irons have a progressively larger undercut that pullsweight farther back from the face for added forgiveness.
I'm ashade under a 9 handicap. Good driving sets up my game for good scoring.Typical solid rounds are a lot of pars and some bogeys, limiting the damage toa double-bogey or two. 1 or 2 birdies a round is my average. I'm not a veryhigh-ball hitter and prefer lighter weight shafts, but standard swing weightirons. I can effectively play 'off-the-rack' setups out of the box as they'revery close to my actual specs. I've been playing TaylorMade MCs for the betterpart of the summer with success. I've ONLY played forged irons for severalyears because I LOVE forged feel. I've tried some cast clubs and disliked everyone.
