SPALDING DRIVING IRON
VINTAGE SPALDING DRIVING IRONS AVAILABLE ONLINE
By Ken Liebeskind
The Spalding driving iron is a vintage club that was originally made in 1985. The Executive number 1 Spalding driving iron featured a light stiff steel shaft with a Karma velvet grip. The weight was concentrated to produce a long, high flight. There were also models of the Spalding driving iron that featured carbon graphite shafts.
The Spalding driving iron was an ideal club for drives on holes with tight, narrow fairways. For those truly interested in vintage clubs, Spalding made wood shafted clubs in the 1920s, including the Robert L Jones Tournament models and a Phil Taylor model that was made in Dysart Fife Scotland.

Today's driving irons are a lot more technologically advanced than the traditional models. The Condor Weighted driving irons from www.scientificgolfclubs.com contain two four gram tungsten weights that can be customized to your swing to reduce hooks and slices. You can leave both weights in to increase power, take the heel weight out to reduce hooks and take the toe weight out to reduce slices.
Using different weighted clubs is unusual but not unprecedented - Phil Mickelson won the 2006 Masters using two differently weighted drivers to improve accuracy.
As you can see, driving irons have come a long way from plain wooden shafted clubs and the Spalding driving irons from the 1980s with steel and graphite shafts. The Condor driving irons are scientifically weighted to lengthen your drives and can be customized to straighten them.
The Condor driving irons provide as much distance as drivers and three woods with increased accuracy thanks to an easier swing and the ability to customize the clubs to reduce hooks and slices.
