It’s a one-two for TaylorMade in the Game Improver category, with the stunning R11 irons taking a deserved TG Gold Award.
Often a club will perform highly in one, two or three categories and be let down by their performance in a couple of others – but the R11 ticks the boxes across the board.
In terms of looks, it is absolutely stunning – clean and neat behind the ball, but if you think this may affect forgiveness, you couldn’t be more wrong. The famous Inverted Cone Technology still remains, and this helps to promote faster ball speeds on mishits.
Paul Bryant (handicap 17) said he could play with these irons all day long and the performance actually gave him goose bumps – they were that impressive. Neal adored the more traditional bladed style on offer, and felt the distance was sensational. Even our highest handicapper, Rik, found very little to dislike about the irons, and duly awarded it full marks in all of the subjective catergories.
We would say this, however – when you put the club down at address, it is considerably smaller and “less friendly” than others on Test – but as soon you hit the ball, you realise it’s loaded full of forgiveness and playability. These are yet another brilliant performer from TaylorMade.
“These were simply fantastic when it came to the aesthetics, especially given that it’s been designed to help the game improver. If you’re a traditionalist, you will like the way TaylorMade have retained the classic shape – but just made it bigger. The progressive topline through the set is an excellent idea for helping to build
confidence too. This can perform well for lots of golfers, especially when you throw
in a good custom-fit.”
