A clean, crisp strike - ideal for mid handicappers

Wilson DRII 80 thumb



The heads look comparatively large at address - a potential confidence booster for mid to high handicap golfers. But Padraig Harrington has been known to wield these so there must be something there for the lower handicappers too.


A combination urathene insert in the undercut helps to damp out vibrations for softer feeling shots, this should help feel on well struck shots and reduce the ugly feeling that comes with thin ones.


Golfers of all standards will experience some deal of success with these as they offer the high handicapper enough help to get the ball airborne and the low handicapper a crisp strike and ball control.
