Orlimar Golf Company introduces new premium set Tour 2 Irons

FLUSHING, Mich. -- Orlimar Golf Company has introduced a premium set of irons for the low-handicap player looking for a club that performs and feels like a traditional blade, but is more forgiving on off-center hits. The Tour 2 irons are a soft carbon forged (SCF) cavity muscle back iron that offers superior shot making for pin-point accuracy.

Orlimar Tour 2 iron is made from 1025 carbon forged stainless steel head, which provides outstanding feel and feedback that can only be achieved from forging soft steel. Internal muscle behind the sweet spot generates consistent power and control with just enough perimeter weighting for forgiveness on less than perfect shots. The nickel chrome-plated club head is designed with a thin top-line and sole to give the look and feel of a traditional blade. The club reduces drag through impact in all types of lies and adverse conditions. A uniform minimal hosel offset delivers consistent control throughout the set and CNC-milled grooves are USGA conforming.

"This product reaffirms Orlimar's commitment to premium products for tour caliber players," said John Runyon, Orlimar President and CEO. "The Tour 2 irons is Orlimar's first entry into this category under the new ownership and we are very excited with the initial feedback from professionals and amateurs who have tested them. They give the irons high marks in control, feel and workability; all characteristics that the better player is looking for in a forged cavity back iron."

The Orlimar Tour 2 irons are available in a 3 - PW set with True Temper® Dynamic Gold® S300 or R300 shaft options, Golf Pride® grips and right-handed only. Custom fit shaft and grip options are also available. The suggested retail for a set of 8 irons is $799.99.

Orlimar has been manufacturing and distributing golf equipment since 1959 and offers a complete line of performance golf products including clubs, bags, balls, carts and accessories. Headquartered in Flushing, Mich., Orlimar is owned by King Par LLC, a privately held company.
