Golf Irons Technology
Those who believe that modern design elements in golf irons do not
maketh the game, just haven't tried the right clubs.
In previous articles we looked at the basics of:
But what of the latest advances in golfing technology. And how
are they being used in the design on irons.
Golf Iron Head
Typical golf marketing materials, such as that presented by Thomas
Golf profess their Custom AT-510 Irons
" increase accuracy by combining the latest technologies and
high-performance designs with proven shot alignment technology"
"Head Technology produces unsurpassed forgiveness, easy launch,
and maximum playability, while the exclusive patented shot aiming
indicator makes it easier to place your ball right on target"
"Unique patented shot alignment indicator offers exceptional
visualization and proven accuracy."
"The AT-510 irons have weight strategically and uniquely distributed
in each clubhead of the set. The long irons have weight concentrated
low, rearward, and in the heel to facilitate squaring the clubhead
and getting the ball airborne. This weight positioning creates a
high ball flight for long, soft-landing shots".
"As the club numbers increase throughout the set, the AT-510
design incrementally shifts higher and towards the toe to precisely
calibrate trajectory and spin rate to prevent shots from ballooning
while maintaining the ability to hold greens".
This is a great example of how recent technology is expanding the
capability of the average golfer.
NOTE: A recent announcement that the rules will be changed to “restore
the historic importance of driving accuracy in the game based on
extensive research into the effect of club face groove markings
on spin generation for balls hit from the rough”. This indicates
that the rules of golf are going to keep it as fairly matched to
skill as possible. Read
