The new CG iron family is designed to cater for players of all abilities. The CG Gold is a large cavity back that’s geared up for forgiveness, while still promising a soft feel off the clubface. Gold Gelback insert is 10% softer than CG Red’s for better vibration dampening and forgiveness on mis-hits. Progressive offset makes it easier to square the blade at impact, while a thicker topline promotes real confidence at address. Longer blade makes face 11% larger too for more forgiveness.
The CG Gold really is a very forgiving iron, something that was brought home to me even more when close inspection revealed that a number of fairly pure-feeling shots were actually coming quite a long way out of the toe.
