I’ve been playing the Tom Wishon Golf Technology 770CFE irons for a couple of years now, but I’ve lost a bit of distance. So, to get it back, and save some wear and tear on my right shoulder and elbow, I’ve built a new set of irons with graphite shafts. I used the TWGT 870Ti clubheads, TWGT S2S Gold Tour Flight shafts, and TWGT V-series midsize grips. I built the clubs with ascending swingweight to approximate MOI matching. The 5-iron was built to a length of 38.75″ and a swingweight of D-4. The increment in length for the irons was 3/8″ with a 0.5 swingweight points added as the clubs got shorter.
My TWGT 919THI driver I’ve been using for a while had gotten beat up and ugly from some bad swings, so I built a new one to match with the 959OL driver I use for recreational rounds (same shaft, swingweight, length and loft). I used the TWGT S2S Black 65 shaft and Golf Pride Dual Duometer midsize grip. I built it to a length of 44.5″ and a swingweight of D-1.
A few weeks back, I lost my sand wedge, so I took the opportunity to build new wedges as well. The CX Micro wedges are discontinued, but I bought several sets as it is the best wedge I’ve played and see no reason to switch to anything else. I used the TWGT CX Micro wedge heads, Rifle Spinner shafts and Golf Pride New Decade Multicompound midsize grips. I built them to match the 870Ti AW, 36.5″ length and D-7.5 swingweight.
I’ve practiced with the clubs, and they all work as expected, as long as I put a good swing on the clubs. There’s the rub… Anyway, I’m playing 18 with the clubs for the first time today.
