I understand MPF is a “guide” to selecting the correct irons. How would a single handicap utilize the MPF to select an iron? It seems most of the dimensions used for MPF are to help with getting the ball airborne. I don’t require any more height even with long/mid irons so would I still look for a specific MPF rating range? I currently use a MB iron with a 335 rating. It seems from reading that I would benefit with a higher rated iron (450-550 minimum according to the MPF article). Would it be better to look specifically at MOI and Horizontal CG placement or MPF as a whole?
Thanks for any clarification.
Yep, I understand how a higher MPF can help your off-center shots. Specifically, I’m looking for how to use the MPF ratings as a guide.
“If only there was a way for the golfer to avoid buying and playing with the wrong equipment. A simple guide that would aid the golfer and provide multiple choices to try golf clubs best suited to his or her style of play. There is a solution: the Maltby Playability Factor (MPF).”
How do I actually use the info? Should I simply play the highest MPF iron I can get my hands on? Should I look at a particular category based on my handicap? I don’t understand how to use MPF to aid me in trying clubs best suited for my game.
