'Fairway finder' and much more - Callaway's X Forged UT irons
Callaway has already gone through two generations of supercomputer, as it has brought machine learning AI to golf club design. Flash face cups for distance, tungsten weights put in optimal locations, and urethane microspheres designed to improve feel and feedback have all been implemented in their game improvement irons.
With the new X Forged Utility irons, Callaway has put these technologies into a package that is more familiar to better players than a hybrid or high lofted fairway club. These players are still skilled enough to hit long irons, but also realize that it's hard to ignore extra forgiveness and yardage when you get into numbers like 2, 3, and 4 in the set.
"For players that see a hybrid and find the bulge and roll in the face unfamiliar to them, these are a genuine alternative for an easy launching long iron replacement," said Dr. Alan Hocknell, Callaway's Vice President of Research & Development.
On the PGA Tour, (and all tours for that matter) utility Irons are a popular addition to the bag, especially as a “fairway finder” off the tee. They also make a very versatile club to hit into par-5s or long par 4s.
X Forged Utility puts Callaway's best tech into a confidence-inspiring, hollow body construction, to serve better players looking for a new go-to club off the tee or from the fairway.
