Every successful golfer will likely own a set of quality golf clubs. Manufacturers periodically announce new models of clubs and keeping up with the differences between the various product lines is not always easy. One particular model of club may differ from others in the same product line; sometimes the clubs are quite similar, other times the variances may be significant. The Ping S59 and Ping S59 tour irons are in the former category: they are nearly identical except for a few minor cosmetic distinctions.
