Callaway X-Forged 2018 Irons Review
Callaway X-Forged 2018 Irons Review

Yes I know they also did a 2013 X-Forged, which looks very similar to the 2018 version, but the 2009 version was the first for me. The rear of the sole features the now familiar curved edge that we first saw on the Apex Pro 16 irons and size wise, the X-Forged 2018 is very similar to this, just with a smaller muscle back in the centre of the cavity.

Fairway Woods
Fairway Woods

The 3 wood and 5 wood are commonly referred to as fairway woods, because they are most often used during the second shot of play, when you are supposed to be in the fairway of the golf hole (as opposed to in the woods!). All higher lofted woods (7, 9, 11, and so on) are commonly referred to as utility woods.

Meet the Hybrids

Think of the hybrid as what it feels like to hit a perfect long iron, or even a middle iron, without the luck or quite simply the overwhelming difficulty. Because of the way iron sets are being designed today, the lofts on long irons are both stronger and compressed together.

Of course, "woods" are now also made of metal, but that's a relatively recent development. Irons have featured metal clubheads (steel, these days) for centuries. The clubheads of irons are thin from front to back, and the clubfaces are grooved to impart spin on the golf ball.

Other irons may be available for purchase separately, including a 2-iron and additional wedges (gap wedge, sand wedge, lob wedge). None of the additional clubs are necessary for beginners, and especially not the 2-iron.

The woods in a typical golfer's bag will include a driver and one or two fairway woods, most commonly a 3-wood and/or 5-wood. Women and seniors might benefit from adding a 7-wood or 9-wood. The 4-wood is another common wood, and some golfers even carry an 11-wood.

Titleist 718 AP3 Irons Review

Literally, Titleist.com explains the 718 AP3 iron as "the players distance iron". Knowing that the AP1 has the strongest lofts in the Titleist family of irons, we thought it would be best to set a high mark for the AP3.
