Press Release Body = By Tim McDonald, National Golf Editor, Golf Publisher Syndications
MacGregor Golf has jumped on the \"game-improvement\" bandwagon with its Mactec line of clubs. The company\'s promises its NVG2 Mid Irons will add distance and control to your golf game, and reviewer Tim McDonald liked what he saw, especially in the long irons.
Golf gear today is all about making lousy golfers better, squeezing every inch out of those woeful swings, and I\'m all for it. I\'m waiting for the first golf-club maker to come out with robots that will hit the ball for us.
MacGregor Golf is well over 100 years old, but it has jumped on the hot \"game-improvement\" bandwagon too - the company\'s new motto is \"Hell Bent on Improving Your Game.\"
To that end it has come out lately with a whole line of Mactec gear - drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and irons. Irons are my Achilles heel these days, so I\'ve been testing MacGregor\'s Mactec NVG2 Mid Irons (manufacturers\' suggested retail price: $799 for steel, $899 for graphite).
They\'re designed for mid-handicappers, but Greg Norman has been touting them. And if it\'s good enough for The Shark - and if he isn\'t embarrassed to be seen playing with game-improvement gear - it\'s worth a try.
Here\'s the short verdict, before I hit you with the technology: I liked these clubs, especially the long irons.
Like its brethren, this next generation of NVG2s (some critics complained the earlier models were rather lacking aesthetically) incorporates \"Cup Face 360ļ\" technology, which purports to make the entire face the sweet spot, providing \"maximum distance even with off-center hits,\" according to MacGregor.
