I am interested to know if offset irons may affect your swing?
Previously, i was using a old Ben Hogan Forge with very little offset, recently, i got a old callaway X16 and trying to fit my swing to it.
On most days, on range i will do some chipping 1st with my callaway x forge wedges, i can chip pretty accurate and well with it,
After i hit some iron shots with X16, when i come back again to chip using my wedges, i found my shots hooking alot or shooting to the left side.
Just curious if anyone can point to me if i have made a mistake by going into a offset club, which previously i am hitting quite well with a non offset clubs?
My launch angle is exceptionally high as well.
Appreciate for all feedback and comments.
Many thanks and a great weekend!

Yes, I have the same experience too. It is not because I have a good swing but I just cannot able to swing well with too off set club including driver that I had mention before. I was told it have sometime to do with your release of your club when you swing ...
I do not know whether you made a mistake of changing but it is always good to try or go for demo before you buy.

Just to clear up a few things...
By adding offset to an iron, it does help the clubface to close through impact, which can help a great number of players, particularly with the long- and mid-irons. The reason this happens is that the offset puts the center of gravity of the club in a slightly different relationship to the centerline of the shaft.
If you simply lay an offset and non-offset iron on a table with the heads hanging off the side, you’ll see that the face of the offset iron will point slightly upward, while the face of the non-offset iron will be nearly vertical. This is a simple re-arrangement of the balance point, so that in the downswing, the offset iron is already “seeking” a more square position through impact.
Obviously, because the offset iron tends to close through impact, such an alignment is exactly the wrong thing for any player with a tendency to pull or draw the ball. It’s a slicer/pushers fix only.
Personally I think too many players look for "quick" fixes through equipment rather than spending a bit of time with a teaching pro.
