However, what about the design of the clubs? If his woods are designed to maximize distance and his irons to maximize accuracy there could be some gaps between the two?
Just because you play as a kid, doesn't mean you have good timing. If so then every kid should be really good at baseball, because it requires even more timing. Yet there are kids who plain out suck at putting bat to ball.
Not really. That general statement isn't true. Irons are built for distance. Its just irons are more accurate because they are shorter, and have higher lofts. If you get a driving iron, lets say Titleists new one. It would be pretty hard to control for most amateurs.
You're right, I should have qualified that he stated that he was good at it up to the time he quit and started baseball. However, from his articles it sounds like he's pretty good at baseball too.
I guess I should have thought a little more about the design of the clubs statement.
Even I took my driver and put in a 135 gram shaft into it, and did that so I can find the fairway more often at a potential cost to distance.
