I had a lot of fun unboxing my new, custom fitted TaylorMade SpeedBlade Irons yesterday. Then I had more fun sitting there staring at them, on the couch, not moving, not at the golf course. Just as I unboxed them, a snowstorm with one inch wide snowflakes hit.
Weather permitting, I hope to play these beauties soon and see just how beneficial to my game they will be. As a two handicap these are not necessarily the perfect type of irons for me according to many. These are game improvement clubs. A two ‘capper would supposedly be best benefitted by a set of forged blades or muscle back irons. The SpeedBlades are not forged. Rather, they’re a cast combo cut muscle/cavity. But I’m a low single digit handicap because I putt lights out and the flatstick saves my ass all the time. My greens in regulation percentage is not good, nor is my short game.
If an iron set can make hitting greens easier and I can hit more of greens in regulation I don’t care what kind of clubs they are. I can let the flatstick score some birdies instead of saving pars all the time.
At least that’s what I’m hoping for.
Now if the snow would melt we could get this show on the road.
Until then, you can check out my TaylorMade SpeedBlade Iron photos.
I, too, am in the market for a new set of irons. Like you, I can putt, but, unlike you my handicap is quite a way from 2. People I respect are fans of TaylorMade. These new irons intrigue me. I am anxious to see what you think.
I’m going in with an open mind. Whether they do or don’t deliver for me, I’ll report here!
