Re: Have you ever hit a 1-Iron?I carried a Hogan Apex (Blade) 1-iron from 1988 to 2000 and used it quite often, usually once per round. I normally used it off the tee on tight par-4's, aproach shots to par-5's, or real long par-3's. The ball flight for me was just slightly lower than my 3-iron and I hit it around 230yds.
The best shot I ever hit with it I also won a $5 bet on the shot. My brother and I were playing a round with our cousin who had never played with us before. We came to this extremely long 235yd par-3. I pull out my 1-iron and my cousin says "your hitting a 1-iron, I'll bet you $5 you won't even come close to the green". My brother tried to save him and said "I wouldn't bet him if I were you, he's pretty good with that club". But he insisted he wanted to bet. I was more than comfortable hitting the club but the shot I hit was a little extra special. It never left the flag, landed 5 feet short of the hole, almost rolled in and finished 18 inches past the cup. My cousin almost fell over and my brother and I laughed all the way to the green! Sweetest $5 I ever earned,,,lol!
