I never asked about distance, only accuracy.  Anyways, most of your comments make sense.  I do think that club brands are overrated though.  The differences aren't as large as most people believe.   Today I just used a new set of irons, and I did notice a difference.  It did seem like I had less miss hits and they went further.  But the biggest change I noticed was backspin on the green!  I actually had a ball stop and move back a few inches from where the divot was with...
OK.  No one failed to explain why cheaper clubs can't move the weight around or make the same cavity that the expensive brands can. 
Elaborate.  It is still a flat surface.  If it is not the center, it will still be hit at the same degree off center on all clubs.  So lets say your club is tilted 10 degrees to the right when you strike the ball on a good and bad club.  A good club is not going to correct for that 10 degrees, because that is impossible.  The surface that hits the ball is still completely flat.  A different weight or cavity is not going to curve the ball back straight. 
I think most talk about certain brands of clubs being better than another is mostly marketing and ego boosting.  I can see how certain drivers might drive the ball a little further than another brand.  And possible how an expensive iron could hit a ball further.  But how is it physically possible for a iron with the same flat surface to be more accurate?  It is flat, and the ball bounces off straight.  Just as how if you dropped a tennis ball on a flat surface, it is going...
I'm tall, and according to charts I should be using clubs about 1" longer than "standard."  But I have been doing research and am wondering if it really matters.  First I want to go over what "standard" actually is.  Golf clubs have been increasing in length over the years because longer clubs give greater distance and sell better, but you also lose accuracy.  Different clubs also have different "standard" lengths.  For example, a lot of burner Irons are longer than what...
I would never buy clubs off ebay or used online.  Most things that are sold on ebay are stolen or counterfit.  I got burned on a few clubs I ordered.  If you do buy on online make sure it is directly from a golfer who bought them brand new and just wants new clubs.   
I need longer clubs and I was comparing my friends Burner 2 Irons to my Irons that I was fitted for and that are longer than standard.  Well side by side his are almost the same length, which they shouldnt be.  So I go to sports authority website and it gives the length of the clubs.  It gives the length of the PW as the standard 35.5".  However, I measured the PW myself and it is 36.25" to the floor.  So what gives here?  I made sure I was measuring it correctly to the...
Well when I go out on courses I would say that about 1/3 are chasing balls in the trees and hitting long shots with their irons that just go about 50 yards or less or into the woods, when they wanted them to go straight and 150 yards.   I would guess that 20% hit less than 100.
  Very informative post.  So now I'm wondering if it can be broken down in percentages between form, strength, types of muscle fibers, flexibility, coil/uncoil, etc.....I has to have been studied?
Independent of form, how much of swing speed is strength, and how much is other natural factors like types of muscle fibers etc.  For example, in baseball strength has little to do with how fast you can throw a ball.  A pitcher might not have much strength at all, but still throws fast.  Does someone who can swing a bat fast or throw a ball fast have a faster golf swing, if they have the same form?
