Club-fitters like Gary Winters of Gairs Golf Shop & The Tee It Up Driving Range shares about the benefits of a true custom iron:
“I’ve done at least a thousand fittings. And I consistently find that 75% of the players fit to a lie angle outside of the normal range you’d find in a traditional iron spec. What this means is these players require the head to be more upright. It has to do with their angle of approaching the ball and what they are doing at impact. I fit them off a lie board and I always find it’s necessary to bend the lie angles.” Winters says he will normally need to bend lies anywhere from 3 to 8 degrees which helps the player tremendously in hitting accuracy and launch angle. “I only carry iron heads that I can alter and bend. And I primarily fit with heads that I can alter in the widest range.” Read more about the benefits of 304 Stainless Steel.
