 I guess I'll just comment on what I want to attempt to do and try not to interpret what others mean with their comments.  That way I can't become confused. I know that if I was able to duplicate a reliable fade or draw, then I could use the entire fairway.  I agree, it's smart to set up and aim to the left side of the fairway if you can hit a consistent and reliable fade and the opposite if you could depend upon a reliable and consistent draw.  I haven't been able to be...
Ok Denny, I'll be happy to report my progress.  It'll probably take a little while to see any results one way or the other as I don't expect any overnight success or failure...but I'll be giving it a go and let you know what the results are as I go.
I guess what I'm going to try and accomplish by using the Moe Norman approach is to never unintentionally "work" the ball into trouble.  Just want to see if I can hit it dead straight most every time.  I've been very athletic my entire life, but the one thing I've never been able to master is the golf swing.    I can't remember which video I watched where Moe was asked when was the last time he entirely missed a fairway.  Moe replied "Seven years ago".  That's my goal...
Just read through all the posts, there are several posters who think you have to work the ball to play good golf. 
I'm curious as to why all the posts on this subject stopped all of a sudden!  I was interested to see if "pipergsm" continued to improve and if he progressed to incorporating the swing to his irons.   I've spent countless hours practicing and have taken many professional lessons and my handicap has not moved much at all, especially downward!  I practice more than I play because I have the facilities to do so.  Not long ago a light went on in my head...I needed to create...
Iron hosel width is either .355 (taper) or .370 (parallel).  Reamer bits which are specifically designed for reaming .355 to .370 are available at Golfworks and a few other companies that sell golf specific tools.    Here is a link to reaming bits at Golfworks: http://www.golfworks.com/product.asp_Q_pn_E_GW0115   I use a vise which is designed to hold the clubhead while reamining.  I have fixed this vise to my drill press and lined it up so all I have to do is lower...
It's easy to ream a hosel to .370 with the proper tools.  I'd recommend using a drill press, so you can set the depth, with a .370 reaming bit.  I purchase my reaming bits from Golfworks. When using a reamer bit properly you will not increase the depth of the hosel; the hosel will only be "widened" to .370.  If you use a regular drill,  you could easily increase the depth of the hosel because regular bits are designed to "drill".  Reamers have a blunt point and are...
