Research in visual perception shows that traditional Irons are difficult to align to the target, but the level TOP-PLANE and ALIGNMENT INDICATOR of the Thomas Golf Irons, make for easy alignment of the club to the target line. The golfer's feet, hips, and shoulders can then be easily set up parallel to the indicator and target line. Professional instructors around the world emphasize these factors as the essential elements to achieving a successful swing and ball flight.
Additional mass concentrated behind the ball at impact gives consistent ball strikers a stronger longer ball flight. The 602's have also incorporated a slight cavity-back to improve shot accuracy for those occasional mis-hits. This professional cavity-back design feature becomes progressively more pronounced in the longer irons, as face impact accuracy is more difficult with longer irons.
The player's size head and concentrated mass of the 602's will produce a sweeter and more productive shot for accurate ball-strikers. This Player's-club design also allows the golfer to “work” their shots utilizing draws, fades and knockdowns, that would otherwise be corrected by larger Game-Improvement cavity-back designs. The small head size also reduces drag through grass, rough and sand. The low hosel offset of the 602's will increase effectiveness and prevent the tendency of shots going too far left.
The 602 has a thinner top-plane for a slimmer look at address, and a sole designed to augment the abilities found in the game of better players. Each sole is designed and ground to compliment the typical movement through impact that most scratch players demonstrate. This optimized sole design also allows the golfer to better “slide” the club under the ball.
