In June, we wrote a lot about the waves that Japanese manufacturer Honma is making in the U.S. market. They’re hardly the only ones bringing sweet new technology across the Pacific, though.

Fourteen Golf has been in the U.S. market for nearly two decades, its profile raised by Ernie Els’ win at the 2002 Open Championship using Fourteen Golf irons.

The company’s latest export is also one of its coolest-looking — the HI-877 hybrid, a club designed to combine the forgiveness of a hybrid with the shot-shaping ability of a utility iron, and thus of value to scratch golfers and high-handicappers alike. That performance is achieved by combining a low center of gravity with an AM-355 steel-cup face, the former for increased forgiveness and the latter for greater ball speeds. Add to that what Fourteen calls a “Planet Sole” — a large, rounded sole designed originally for a Fourteen wedge — and you have a club that can cut cleanly through long rough, while still producing top-performing distance and accuracy numbers.

The finish may be yellow, but you’ll be seeing nothing but green lights all the way.
