It's been noted by more than one golf observer that hockey players, when given the opportunity, tend to have naturally powerful golf swings. Every new Taylormade Burner 2.0 irons has been engineered to be long. The face is thinner. The toplines are progressive. The shafts are specifically designed for each head.
Burner 2.0 iron has its own weight distribution. And every club has been shaped differently, so we've repositioned and reshaped the Inverted Cone behind every face to maximize distance and forgiveness. Because every iron has a different task we have shaped each iron differently - larger heads for long irons, more compact heads for scoring clubs. The sole of each iron has been shaped to reduce turf resistance to achieve the perfect balance between sole geometry and performance.
My first shot with a Burner 2.0 was an uphill 6-iron from about 165 yards to a pin tucked behind a bunker short and right of the green. I made far from perfect contact but was pleasantly surprised to watch the ball rise and drop just the other side of the sand, about 30ft from the hole. I felt sure that wouldn't have happened with my own taylormade rocketbladez irons. At the 6th, I hit a 9-iron from about 135 yards that stopped abruptly 15 feet right of the cup. At the 9th, a 200-yard Par 3 with the pin near the front, my not-quite-solid 4-iron came up a yard or two short of the green. This continued for the next three days - instances where I'd certainly be aware of a little extra yardage.
I had a little trouble hitting intentional hooks and slices when I landed behind a large saguaro, but minor fades and draws are certainly possible. I'm probably too inconsistent a ball-striker nowadays to say much about whether or not the CG location made much difference, but I would say the 4-iron was pretty easy to get up in the air - not quite as easy as a hybrid club with similar loft perhaps, but markedly easier than my callaway apex pro irons. The short irons did penetrate a little better because of the higher CG which I think is preferable to a high, floaty shot that's at the mercy of the wind.
Undoubtedly, the Burner 2.0 is a fabulous club. The average golfer should feel comfortable with a Burner 2.0 up behind the ball.
