      i don't have a desire to game a ut. being a moderate speed, but low launch/low spin player, i am definitely not the ideal player. give me a hybrid with some junk in the trunk and plenty of forgiveness, please.

          Iíve had several driving irons and I love the idea of them. I just cannot consistently get ideal numbers from them and if the fairways arenít super hard they cost me. I still own several but donít regularly game them unless itís on hard fairways (rare around here).

            Woodland has the best stinger in the game right now in my book. That thing is impressive.

              When Tiger was 16, 17 years old I watched him play a few rounds of golf. In those days he carried a Ping Eye 2 1 iron and used it off a lot of par 4 and par 5 tee boxes, he hit the 1-iron more often than he hit driver. His ball flight with it was super high, like a moon ball way higher than anybody else hit the ball , and he could carry it about 265 here at sea level courses.

                        I changed out a hook machine hybrid to the Callaway Utility Iron. I started out really well with the iron but since I took time off getting the club to be a money club again has been difficult. Before rounds I am testing the 3wd and 18* iron to see what I am going to use off the tee and for long approaches. Unfortunately recently both 3wd and 18* have been less than ideal so it is always Driver off tee and 4 iron is the longest approach club. 2 spots in my bag are just space savers. Fortunately for me I really would only use the clubs once or twice in a round for approaches (long par 5's) and my driver has been pretty good so not having a "smart play" club hasn't hurt yet.

                        My only reasons not to go back to hybrids is the hook factor and the high flight. I am intrigued by Ping's flat setting (I used it in the driver already) and even the TXG left hand adapter trick sounds good but it doesn't fix the high flight I was getting. Earlier this year I could hit the iron high and low at will and I just have to find the magic with the club again.

                          Might've swung one utility iron at a simulator and that was it.

                          My 2H is my driving iron but that isn't low by any means, polar opposite.

                          I don't golf with anyone who has that driving iron club or stinger off the tee.

                          Cool to see on Tour though haha.

                            It's a club I've always wanted to game, but never found one that worked as well as I had hoped off the tee, never saw it as an off the turf club, but as a driving iron/driver replacement, I've always wanted to keep one in my bag.

                              Here are a few examples of when I used my driving iron. This thing has been a fairway finder for me and much more accurate than my 3wood imo.

                              Iíve also hit some really good ones off the deck when needed. Here is one of my highlight shots off the deck.

                                I'll take a 2I or utility iron over any hybrid and most fairway woods any day of the week. I told you what I'm getting out of the 21* utility here in CO...I wish I hadn't caved in the 15/16* previous generation Apex UT.
