"For me it's all about performance, what are my misses like?" says Curtis, who ranked first in Greens in Regulation at the Valero Texas Open. "The AP1s are more forgiving so they give you a little more room for error."
Appearance improvements to the AP1 irons include a new beveled topline and smoother hosel blend for a traditional shape with a more precise address profile. The AP1 irons also feature progressive blade lengths throughout the set for a confidence-inspiring look in the longer irons and increased playability in the shorter irons. For more information about the technology behind the AP1 irons, be sure to check out the above video.
