Saw that the Big Cat is busting out the new GAPR LO driving iron at Carnoustie this week. Probably not a bad move given how baked out the course is. His creativity and shot-shaping ability with long irons is going to be fascinating to watch and hopefully get in contention.
I did before switching to Taylormade, I played Ping G2 irons 3-PW. My gapping was good until the 3, 4, 5 irons, all around 200-210. I bought two hybrids (3h 17* & 4h 21*) and then took the 3 & 4 irons out of my bag. This worked but I had too many clubs for tournament play with a new wedge set I bought. Also, I couldn't give up my 3w as I wasn't getting anywhere close to the distance with a 3h (260 versus 230). And when I am struggling with Driver, the 3w gave me confidence for tight fairways.
With my current Taylormade set, I am seeing a large gap between my 6 iron and 7 iron. I havent really had issues with gapping on my 4 or 5 irons both being about 15yds apart. I play M4 irons and even had the same problem with M2 version i had before. My 7 iron is my 175yd club. My 6 is good for 200yds. My gapping appears to be about 13-15yds for all clubs except that 5-6-7 iron gapping.
Yea same here just fitted m3 irons the gapping drops from my 7 iron 180 to my 6 iron 195 and my five iron 210
I have a Loft and Lie bending machine, so I have tinkered with my lofts in my irons. I play the P790's. I have basically squeezed the gaps on the higher clubs and opened the gap in the lower. I do not mind hitting the 3 iron off the tee on par 4s, I get it out there 215-220 and fairly straight. Worth a shot if you have someone you trust to bend your clubs.
I would love a new GAPR Mid to replace my current 4 iron. Something to help me off the tee as well as assist my need for a club which assists in getting height on my approach shots but also allows workability. Would greatly help my game! Love TM!
I can tell you the 3Mid GAPR I put in my bag has been Awesome! I have it turned down from stock 18 degrees all the way down and it is a Beast. Works well between P790 3 iron and M1 3 wood, (that is more like 4 wood loft).
