    Stupid driving iron question......
    Since it is the general thought that long irons are not easy to hit, would one have to be adept with them to have any success with a (premium) driving iron?  I'll hang up and listen.

    I, too, have been pleasently surprised when a 3balls club, listed in Fine, comes still in plastic.. I never venture below VG.

    OP here.... "no returns" is now moot, as ebay is swayed to the buyer. I wish I had that now. It is really a tool move to do this.
