Tip of the Day

Cast vs. Forged

Another misconception about golf equipment is that forged irons are more difficult to hit than cast clubs. That?s just not true. Casting and forging are manufacturing processes that have nothing to do with how easy or hard the club is to hit. (To make cast clubs, molten metal is poured into a mold; forged irons are hammered into shape.) The playability of a club is determined by the clubhead?s design. For example, a manufacturer could forge an oversized iron with extreme perimeter weighting that would be much easier to hit than a more traditionally sized cast club with little or no perimeter weighting.
