Joseph Montoro a 45-year-old 11-handicapper from Miami has some talent thanks to a background in baseball and a clubhead speed that hits 104 mph with the driver. With his current off-the-rack clubs his tendency was to miss a lot of shots to the right—fine when you’re advancing a runner to third but not when you’re aiming for fairways and greens. Joseph also felt that given his speed he was leaving yards on the table.
“Joseph had lots of speed but was playing stock lightweight stiff-flex shafts in his irons and stock stiff shafts in his hybrid and woods. His miss with his irons was a push to the right no doubt exacerbated by his iron shafts being too soft and not stable enough for his speed and the way he loaded the club.
The new RTX 4 also differs from the previous RTX 3 by offering less offset a more compact profile and four new sole grinds all of which were designed via significant input from Cleveland Tour staff members like Keegan Bradley Graeme McDowell and Shane Lowry.
Other features include a thinner looking topline an angled back area for more MOI and stability and an overall more refined look. Like the original 0311 irons the GEN2 models are built with adjustable tungsten and titanium weights that can be tuned to produce an extremely accurate fit.
