MyGolfSpy Ranks Tour Edge HL4 Iron-Wood #1 Best Value Utility Iron in 2019 Most Wanted Testing

MyGolfSpy has named the Tour Edge HL4 Iron-Wood set the Best Value Utility Iron in their 2019 Most Wanted testing.

The popular website that bills itself ‘Truth Digest’ tested 14 different utility irons for over 60 hours with over 2,900 shots analyzed to name the best of the best in utility irons for 2019.


Their in-depth tests utilizing hundreds of thousands of data points led them to name the HL4 Iron-Wood as the best value in the test as it tested as a Top 5 utility iron, while featuring a price tag of only $89.99. The average cost of all other utility clubs tested was $245.

Here’s a look at some of the data where the HL4 Iron-Wood excelled in Most Wanted Utility Iron testing:

  • HL4 Iron-Wood Finished in the Top 5 overall
  • Top 10 in Forgiveness
  • Top 5 in Carry Consistency
  • Category leader for Stokes Gained Consistency
  • Ranked 2nd in Highest Launch
  • Ranked 4th in Yards from Center

MyGolfSpy said the following about the hollow-body club designed by Tour Edge Master Club designer David Glod:
“Our testers with slower swing speeds who struggle to launch utility irons high favored clubs with wider soles and larger (deeper) head designs. Models like the Tour Edge Exotics HL4 and CBX119 utilities were preferred among this subset of testers.”

How did MyGolfSpy test?
MyGolfSpy provides independent, unbiased and objective testing by employing consistent testing methodologies and advanced golf analytics inside their 100% independent test facility.

Their goal is to have the consumer apply head-to-head data to help unlock their full potential. All testers used Bridgestone Tour-B RX golf balls for consistency and to reduce test variables. All head data was captured using the Foresight GCQuad Launch Monitor.

My Golf Spy used the largest human testing pool in the industry and takes into account swing speed, age, handicap and swing variations, while also taking into account tester fatigue and randomization.
