We’re probably guilty of saying this every spring, but has there ever been a better time to invest in a shiny set of new irons?

Many of us will have spent the first three months of the year counting down the days until the golf courses reopened – but now we’re back in full swing, excuse the pun.

If you’ve popped into a golf store or had a browse around your pro shop, you’ll have probably noticed a new set of irons or two.

The temptation to invest in a new set of sticks is just too great – you need to scratch the itch.

To help you narrow down your search for a model that will suit your game, here, we look at the best golf irons of 2021.

Whether you’re new to the game and require a model offering plenty of forgiveness, or a scratch player demanding superior feel and distance control, there are some excellent models to choose from. Let’s check them out.

TaylorMade SIM2 Max Irons

TaylorMade has introduced two new game improvement irons this year – SIM2 Max and SIM2 Max OS. The former is a fraction smaller, with the larger head of the OS featuring even more offset.

The key piece of new technology sees the introduction of a ‘Cap Back’, which is made from high-strength stainless steel and lightweight polymers. The ‘Cap Back’ acts as a bridge to help the topline achieve optimum performance.

Meanwhile, the THRU-SLOT Speed Pocket on the sole allows more flexibility lower down on the clubhead and more speed generating distance. This flexibility gives the club its forgiveness, so mishits won’t be severely punished.

This feature will no doubt appeal to high handicappers and game improvers who struggle to strike the ball consistently out of the middle.

Titleist T200 Irons

The T200 irons are engineered for the player seeking distance, but they’re also one of the most versatile sets in Titleist’s line-up, offering a range of benefits to a broad range of golfers.

The head construction features Max Impact Technology and a forged L-Face to deliver improved feel and maximum ball speed performance, whilst a polymer core dampens vibration for improved sound and feel.

Compared to the T300, the T200 irons are slimmer and feature slightly less offset, which will appeal to better players. That said, they are sure to appeal to the improving player in search of game-improvement performance in a compact shape.

Callaway Apex MB Irons

Built for the best players in the game, the Apex MB irons were one of five new sets launched by Callaway at the start of the year. They feature a classic shape and style, with a traditional, thin top line, refined sole, compact blade length, and beautiful chrome finish.

Precision grooves are designed to promote the high level of control and consistent spin that muscleback players demand. In addition, a new weight in the centre of the clubhead allows swing weights to be precisely dialled in without sacrificing performance.

The Callaway Apex MB irons could well be the perfect fit for the better player seeking the ultimate in feel and shot-making.

TaylorMade P7MB Irons

Rory McIlroy’s weapon of choice is also a big favourite on Tour, so we’re talking about a set that’s designed for the accomplished ball striker.

The thin top line, minimal offset, and narrow sole won’t appeal to everyone, even if they do combine to make the P7MBs one of the most stunning sets on the market. These irons contain such features because they’re designed to provide workability and a superior feel.

They’re forged from 1025 carbon steel with a machine-milled face comprised of the most aggressive score lines in a TaylorMade iron for the ultimate in shot-making and control.

For those in search of true muscleback irons, the P7MB irons are well worth a try.

Wilson Staff D9 Irons

The powerful Wilson Staff D9 (‘D’ stands for distance) irons have been engineered with Power Hole 2.0 technology. This means that holes have been placed on the leading edge around the bottom of the sole to deliver more face flexing.

The new arrangement of power holes increases deflection and provides more energy transfer at impact to increase ball speed. The ultimate result is greater distance performance.

Elsewhere, Wilson has positioned the D9 iron with its lowest ever centre of gravity to improve launch and spin. For the user, this means more stopping power and greater workability.

Wilson Staff’s game improvement model is also a wallet-friendly option for higher handicap golfers. So, with those distance gains, you’re also going to save a few pounds versus if you bought from one of the other big brands.

Mizuno MP-20 Irons

No search for a new set of blades is complete without reviewing Mizuno’s offerings. The MP-20 irons’ design has been inspired by some of their finest blades, and feedback from Mizuno’s Tour players has led them to create one of the thinnest ever top lines.

The tapered topline and cambered sole allow a fuller spread of weight, which enhances vertical stability and forgiveness on strikes from high or low on the face. Meanwhile, a clever mix of satin and chrome on the clubhead has been introduced to stop any unwanted glare.

Only the most precise ball strikers will benefit from the distance consistency it will provide. But if you’re that player, the MP-20 irons should feature on your must-try list.

Ping G425 Irons

The Ping G425 irons are a contender for the best game improvement irons of 2021. They feature Variable Face Thickness design, which improves ball speed performance and launches shots further and higher.

This is commonly found in metalwood design, and the performance benefits will particularly appeal to game improvers in search of extra ball speed and carry distance. In addition, a tungsten toe screw and hosel weight expand the perimeter weighting to create impressive forgiveness levels.

The irons also boast a streamlined look. They’re smaller than the G410 irons overall, so have a slightly more compact appearance. At the same time, they should inspire confidence for those who need it.

Titleist T300 Irons

The Titleist T300 irons are built for maximum speed and forgiveness and offer a hot feel and high ball speed. As such, they’re perfect for game improvement.

Titleist’s Max Impact technology allows the face to be thinner, thereby improving launch, speed, and feel through the inclusion of a silicone polymer insert. A dampener behind the face also helps soften the feel, while a sole with more camber is designed to improve turf interaction and maximise forgiveness.

If you’re an improving player who’s in search of extra distance and more consistency, these irons can help you take your game to the next level.

Cobra Radspeed Irons

The clue is in the name with Cobra’s modern-looking new distance irons, which certainly catch the eye.

One of the main innovations sees 10g and 3g of mass positioned on the toe and heel extremities to create the best combination of speed, low spin, and stability for optimised performance.

Meanwhile, a 3D printed medallion reduces weight to lower the CG and reduces vibrations at ball impact to deliver a softer feel and more feedback response to the golfer.

What’s more, each iron has an electronically enabled sensor built-in to the top of every grip. This system is powered by Arccos and can be paired to your smartphone so you can track your performance and learn how to play smarter golf.

Callaway Apex Pro Irons

Callaway has every level of golfer well catered for with its comprehensive range of irons for 2021, with the Apex Pro irons aimed at the better player and single figure golfer.

These irons boast an Artificial Intelligence-designed Flash Face Cup and urethane microspheres in an all-new forged 1025 hollow body construction. Meanwhile, a Tungsten Energy Core includes up to 90 grams of tungsten per iron to improve launch characteristics while simultaneously improving forgiveness.

It ticks every box in terms of control, flight, and playability – and if you want all that in a classic looking club, you best give the Apex Pro irons a try.

Playing golf in the driving rain is hard enough, and it’s nigh-on impossible when your grips are drenched, and your glove is wet through. A reliable waterproof golf bag is worth its weight in gold, because if you can keep your clubs dry, you’ll be able to focus on what matters – hitting good golf shots.  

In recent years, manufacturers have worked hard on their waterproof offerings, acknowledging that the UK golfer is faced with interchangeable weather conditions all-year-round.

Quite simply, if you’re going to buy a golf bag – stand or carry – you need it to be waterproof. Therefore, you should be paying attention to the fabric it’s made from and finding out whether it has sealed seams and zippers.

Of course, you also want a bag that ticks the other boxes: comfort, style, and usability.

There are models to suit all tastes and preferences, and you’re sure to find one that you like here.

This is our selection of the best waterproof golf bags of 2021.

Best waterproof golf bags: Stand bags

Callaway Chev Dry Stand Bag, £149.95

Organisation is made simple with its four-way divider top system, whilst an integrated lift handle makes the lifting and transportation of this lightweight and stylish bag much easier. It also features five pockets: a velour-lined valuables pocket, ball pocket, cooler pocket, full-length apparel pocket, and an accessory pocket.

Sun Mountain H2NO LiteSpeed Stand Bag, £249.95

Sun Mountain’s extensive range of golf bags is so impressive that choosing one is very difficult. However, because you’re searching for a waterproof option, this is one you must check out.

It’s packed full of brilliant features, with incredible attention to detail applied in every department.

Mizuno BR-DRI Stand Bag, £255

Mizuno doesn’t just manufacture premium irons – its latest bag range is also hugely impressive. Not only is the BR-DRI bag available in an array of eye-catching colours – the blue, silver, and red models are particularly smart – but it delivers excellent functionality. It’s lightweight and features six protected pockets, comfortable double shoulder straps, an external umbrella loop, and a matching rain hood. You shouldn’t need it, but for extra peace of mind, it also comes with a one-year waterproof guarantee.

Titleist Players 4 Plus StaDry Stand Bag, £230

Titleist bags always look easy on the eye – it’s probably the iconic Titleist font. This bag backs up its good looks with a wide range of impressive features. You have high-grade aluminium legs and advanced hinged bottom for stability and durability, whilst dual-density foam ensures long-lasting comfort. There are some fantastic colours to choose from, too – as well as the brand’s popular red and black combinations, there’s the striking blue/black/grey and charcoal/grey/apple options.

Best waterproof golf bags: Cart bags

So, if you need to remove all your wet weather gear, you have ample room in your bag if you go for this one.

BIG MAX AQUA Tour 3 Cart Bag, €329,90

BIG MAX has been one of Europe’s leading golf trolley manufacturers for more than 20 years, and it boasts an extensive range of innovative golf bags.

Meanwhile, its trolley lock base system ensures your clubs stay firmly secured during the course of a round.

We take a trip through time and look back at the 10 most famous moments in Open Championship history. Where does the time go?

1. Seve’s jig

Seve Ballesteros, St Andrews, 1984

Golf’s archives are littered with iconic Seve moments – but this one might just top the lot.

When the “People’s Champion” – donning that smart navy sweater -holed a 15-footer at the last, he jigged on the spot and punched the air in delight.

It’s a celebration that still gives you goosebumps. Give it a go when you win your weekend roll-up… if you haven’t done so already!

2. Miracle man

Ben Hogan, Carnoustie, 1953

The American travelled to Scotland four years after his near-fatal car crash to compete in his one and only Open Championship – which, of course, he won.

The reigning Masters and US Open champion opened with a 73, and improved with each round, capping off a solid tournament with a birdie on the final hole and a course-record 68.

It was his ninth and final Major, and despite promising to return, he never did.

3. Wet wet wet

Jean van de Velde, Carnoustie, 1999

Who can forget this one? Van de Velde surrendered a three-shot cushion on the final hole and lost in the subsequent play-off.

Paul Lawrie took advantage, but it’s hard not to picture the hapless Frenchman wading around Barry Burn every time the 1999 Open is mentioned.

It was heartbreaking. Even now it’s hard to watch – go on, though, have a look back. Why the 2-iron… why?

4. Par for the course

Nick Faldo, Muirfield, 1987

Ah, yes, that bright yellow sweater. This wasn’t just the year of Faldo’s iconic jumper, however – the 116th Open will forever be remembered as the year Muirfield was ‘Faldoed’.

The Englishman carded 18 pars on his final round for a one-shot victory over Paul Azinger and Rodger Davis.

It was far from boring; when Faldo was asked a question, he did what he had to. Major number one of six was secured in professional style.

Tiger’s tears

Tiger Woods, Royal Liverpool, 2006

Woods has three Open titles to his name, but his last, 13 years ago, was surely the most emotional.

Two months after his father, Earl, had passed away, no one knew for certain what kind of Woods would show up on Merseyside.

The great man put on a masterclass, however, and plotted his way around Hoylake with unerring precision.

A great outpouring of emotion followed on the final green, before Woods held the Claret Jug aloft.

6. Rocca’s heroics in vain

Constantino Rocca, St Andrews, 1995

Surely not, not from down there. Of course he holed it, this is the sort of thing that happens at The Open.

Rocca needed a birdie on the final hole to force his way into a play-off, but when he fluffed his chip shot into the Valley of Sin, the challenge looked done and dusted.

However, he followed up with one of the most extraordinary putts in Open history, finding the bottom of the cup from 65 feet.

It was a putt worthy of winning the Claret Jug. Sadly for the Italian, John Daly had other ideas.

7. The ‘Duel in the Sun’

Tom Watson & Jack Nicklaus, Turnberry, 1977

This was the year Watson edged Nicklaus in the thriller later dubbed the ‘Duel in the Sun’.

The Americans had made the final round a two-horse race and they quickly went about trading blows on a fiercely hot day.

Despite being three shots behind at one stage, Watson regrouped and took the lead for the first time on the 17th. He closed with a 65 to pip his great rival by a single stroke.

Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson played out their own epic battle at Royal Troon in 2016 – but has there ever been a greater duel than this one from 42 years ago?

8. Sanders’ agony

Doug Sanders, St Andrews, 1970

Sadly, Sanders’ missed putt is memorable for all the wrong reasons. The hesitation, the bending down to wisp away a wisp of dirt, and the desperate follow-through after he pushed his short putt for victory agonisingly past the hole.

Every time you watch it back, you somehow hope for a different outcome – unless, of course, you’re Jack Nicklaus. The Golden Bear won the 18-hole play-off the next day.

Record-setting Woods

Tiger Woods, St Andrews, 2000

This was Woods’ first Open Championship victory – and his greatest. Quite simply, the 24-year-old was unstoppable in compiling rounds of 67, 66, 67 and 69 to win by eight shots.

En route to the second leg of the “Tiger Slam”, Woods never found a bunker. There have been plenty of dominant Tiger displays over the years, but this was one of his very best.

History repeats itself… almost

Padraig Harrington, Carnoustie, 2007

What is it about Carnoustie? Well, a treacherous 18th hole adds to the drama, and it’s witnessed plenty of that over the years.

Harrington must have had Jean Van de Velde on his mind as he stuttered down his final hole. He held a one-shot lead, before finding the water twice and racking up a double-bogey six.

However, the Irishman dodged a bullet when Sergio Garcia bogeyed the final hole, and he then came through a four-man play-off to become the first Irish winner of The Open since Fred Daly in 1947.

Amidst the drama and excitement of getting back out there, you may have forgotten about your gear – but there are some very important adjustments to make and guidelines you need to follow.

Hannah Holden, Equipment and Instruction Editor at National Club Golfer, has laid out some guidelines to make sure you don’t find yourself in a spot of bother.

Golf equipment vs Covid: Clubs

Do not even touch other players’ clubs. Simple as that.

We’ve all been in that situation where we’re playing a friendly round and borrowed a putter because we left our own in our bag after finding trouble near a green. Just don’t.

Stick to your own and keep them clean. (I know you’ve got a stash of anti bacterial wipes at home already so you might as well make use of them.)

Golf equipment vs Covid: Balls

Same rules. Touch your own and no one else’s.

Don’t leave yourself in a situation where you would need to even think about touching someone else’s golf balls.

Found a Pro V1 in the woods? Great! Well, any other time it would be. Leave it there.

So make sure you have plenty of balls in your bag because the rough is going to be a bit thicker than normal. Why not use this as an opportunity to treat yourself to some new balls? It’s up to you if you’d rather look for a TitleistTaylorMadeCallaway or Srixon in the trees…

Golf equipment vs Covid: Tees

I know it’s tempting, particularly on a par-3, to grab a broken tee left on the tee box and use that. But that needs to stop. You have no idea who has touched them.

In fact, while we are on this point, just don’t leave broken tees on the ground full stop. Take them with you and put them in the bin when you get home.

Don’t worry if your stock is running low, you can buy shed loads of wooden tees for next to nothing.

Or, if you want to be more environmentally friendly, why not give these 100% sustainable bamboo tees from Ocean Tee a try?

Golf equipment vs Covid: Trolleys

It seems that hire trolleys will remain off-limits for the foreseeable future so maybe now is time to upgrade to one of your own?

There are plenty of impressive options from both Motocaddy and PowaKaddy.

If you need to buy one, I really like the Motocaddy M3, which starts from £749.99, and the compact Powakaddy CT6, from £649.99. Both brands have impressive push model options, too.

If they’re a bit out of your price range and want something simple, try the Masters 1 Series, which will give you change from £40.

Golf equipment vs Covid: Rakes

OK, not something you’d normally have in your bag but England Golf have already stated all rakes are to be removed from the course.

If you want to play your part in keeping the course neat, why not add one into your own setup? You can get full rakes for next to nothing in the supermarket and Amazon has one you can attach to the end of your club.

But remember, as with everything else, don’t let anyone else touch your rake.

Golf equipment vs Covid: Anything else?

Other items that won’t be available include ball cleaners so my advice would be to carry a damp towel or flannel on your bag.

Also, remember all bins have to be removed from the course or covered and not used so make sure you take a bag of some sort to stash your rubbish while you play.

And don’t touch the flagsticks!

Enjoy your round. And remember: Play Safe, Stay Safe.

world handicap system golf

Posted by & filed under Blog.

If it seems ages ago that we were talking about the dawn of the World Handicap System, that’s because it is. The new way of measuring our ability was introduced in the UK in November.

But successive lockdowns have meant many of us have barely had a chance to get to grips with terms like Course Handicaps and Slope.

As we now return to the golf course, and with the season upon us, we’re going to be dealing with our World Handicap System Indexes for the first time in a meaningful way.

In an interview with our partner National Club Golfer, Gemma Hunter, England Golf’s head of handicapping and course rating, reveals 5 key things you need to know about the World Handicap System.

1. Your World Handicap System Index and Course Handicap are not the same thing

Now we’ve moved into the new world of WHS you have two numbers you need to remember. One is your Handicap Index, which is the exact calculation of your handicap. This is equivalent to what was your CONGU handicap.

This number [usually expressed to a decimal point] is the average of the best eight of your last 20 scores – in terms of the score differential.

So if people ask ‘what’s your handicap?’ That’s your Handicap Index and that’s how we compare each other now.

Let’s look at Course Handicap. Whenever you play on a golf course, wherever you are, your index is going to change and you’re going to have a different Course Handicap.

It looks at the difficulty of that golf course for the scratch and bogey player and works out what your Course Handicap is based on the slope rating of the golf course you are playing.

2. Your Course Handicap can change depending on the course, or even the tees from which you are playing

Let’s say you are playing your home golf course: your white tees have a slope rating of 145, your yellow tees are 125, and your red tees (for men) are rated at 95. You’re going to have three very different Course Handicaps over those golf courses.

You’re going to lose shots on the red colour, you’re going to gain a few on the yellow and you’re going to gain quite a lot on the whites.

It’s all about the difficulty for the two players – scratch and bogey – playing that particular golf course.

We’re not comparing Course A to Course B. We’re comparing the same golf course but for two players of different ability.

Your handicap is no longer based on playing one single course. It is recalculated and that’s why we call it a Course Handicap. It can change for every course you play.

There are so many different ways you can check what your Course Handicap is going to be on any particular course.

You can do it via the My England Golf app, via the club boards, or you even manually work it out if you know the calculations.

Your Course Handicap is of primary importance because that’s how we work out where you are going to get your strokes.

So, in short, you know what your Handicap Index is, you’ll choose the right tee for your game on that particular day, work out your Course Handicap, and go out and enjoy your round of golf.

3. You receive a Playing Handicap during club competitions but it doesn’t affect the score that goes forward for handicap purposes

The playing handicap is purely for competition purposes. You may find the score you enter into the computer, because that score is based on your Course Handicap, will be different to what is shown on the results sheet.

That’s to be expected. It’s going to be slightly less if you play a medal, for example, because that format comes with a 95% allowance.

But don’t worry too much about the Playing Handicap. It’s purely for competition results purposes.

If you’re recording your gross score, we will use your Course Handicap to work out your new Handicap Index.

4. Social rounds can count towards your handicap

The idea of WHS is you have more opportunity to return scores for handicap purposes. It’s not limited to competition scores. It’s not limited to scores played at your home golf club, as it was with supplementary scores.

You now have the ability to choose to return a score in general play whenever you wish – either home or away.

As long as you are playing a measured golf course, and you pre-register your intent to score before you go out and play, you can return a score from anywhere.

5. You can always check your handicap, and much more, on the My England Golf App

We have launched an app with a range of features – primarily the ability to look at your handicap record. You have full access to scores and it highlights which scores are included in your handicap calculations.

It shows you handicap trends. It has a Course Handicap Calculator, which allows you to select the golf course you’re going to play, the relevant tees, and will do the calculation for you. It tells you what the Course and Slope ratings are and reveals, based on your Handicap Index, what your Course Handicap is.

The Friends functionality allows you to set up a group of people who you might normally play with, look at their records, and send notes and messages around.

We’ve got a lot more coming on stream over the next month or so. There’s much to look forward to and the app is certainly the first port of call for golfers looking to get more out of their Handicap Index.

If you’re finding the guidelines confusing, then you’re not alone. Alex Perry, Digital Editor at National Club Golfer, has thrown together an easy-to-read dummy’s guide for teeing up after lockdown.

There are plenty of guidelines doing the rounds for staying safe in the big golf reopening across the UK – so we’ve put together this very quick guide to make sure you don’t fall foul of any rules once you’re back out there.

Here are a handful of dos and don’ts for you – the golfer – to stick to before, during, and after your round.

Golf reopening dos and don’ts: Pre-round

+ DO book your tee time online, or through whatever system your club decides to use

– DON’T forget to get changed into your golf attire at home and put your shoes on in the car

+ DO eat before you get to the club – the kitchen may not be open to make you a bacon roll, remember!

– DON’T arrive at the club earlier than 15 minutes prior to your tee time

+ DO wait your turn to go on the putting green – those next on the tee have priority

– DON’T forget to manage expectations – greenkeepers have been furloughed too

Golf reopening dos and don’ts: During the round

+ DO stay two metres apart at all time

– DON’T go onto the 1st tee until it is your time to play, ensuring 10-minute gaps between groups

+ DO follow any special routing laid out by your club

– DON’T forget to adhere to the Rule of Six

+ DO be respectful of the condition of the course – the greenkeeping staff have been under tremendous strain during the lockdown period

– DON’T touch anything other than your clubs and ball – this includes flagsticks, bunker rakes, ball washers, stakes, and your playing partner’s equipment

+ DO keep your hands cleaned and sanitised at regular intervals

Golf reopening dos and don’ts: Post-round

+ DO mark and sign your own card – or follow whatever system your club decides to use

– DON’T shake hands or hang around after your round – head straight to your car

And most importantly…

+ DO play safe, stay safe.

And hopefully that will be it for golf courses closing if the country does lock down again…
