This was not a gift
Even though the M2 TOUR was released on 3-15-2016, I have only been able to find two reviews online, both from British pros. I guess they are for a niche market.nnThe clubs are tremendous. They have many of the attributes of the mass market M2 base model. Those are marketed as an ultra-high game improvement iron for high handicappers. nnThe M2 TOUR on the other hand, is a slimmed down version with great workability. Hitting fades and draws are easy. The top line and sole are noticeably thinner.nnWhat I liked the best about them and what you can feel in the first swing, is the low center of gravity. The ball flies high and far. It almost feels like the first time I picked up an Adams rescue club 25 years ago. (Adams, a division of TaylorMade).nnAfter hitting them on the range and supposedly dialing in my distances for 1.5 hours I headed out to the Ballantyne Golf Club for 18 holes. On the first hole a long par four, I had 179 yards to the pin remaining. Normally I hit a 4 iron 180 yards. I ended up overflying the green and hitting it 190. nnThey come standard with an True Temper XP steel shaft 95 grams. Others are available and I tried the 105 gram KBS but it slowed my swing speed down by 4 mph.nnI am a life long golfer age 55, playing to a 14 handicap. I play 3 times per month but hit range balls more frequently.nnThis club is a gem and I highly recommend it. Well dome TaylorMade.
