I have an old Controller driving iron that I will break out on occasion. 12.5 degrees of loft. Certainly not a stroke saver but the feeling of hitting a low missile into a strong breeze is enough to dig it out of the basement once in a while.
 I had a tag split on my 9 iron and I got them at the start of the year.

Terrible article. They didn't include any of the real stereotypes I see.   1. The machine gun. Only hits driver and is hitting the next ball before previous even lands. 2. The mutterer.

You see many families over here sacrifice everything on the chance their kid will become an elite athlete. I doubt Asia even has any real junior development programs, junior am tours,...
 A strong group of Asian players in the pro ranks is a necessary first step to Asia become the center of golf.  Until that happens none of the tournaments over there are going to matter. Sure, sponsors could throw a lot a money out there to entice some top players from the US and Europe but who are they going to play against?
I'm not sure less is possible. I'm still squinting at the photos on a 32" monitor.
