A 1-iron is another animal though, because once you get below 20 degrees of loft, your room for error basically disappears. A 2-iron can be hit high or low and worked either way, but the money in the bank shot is that arrow straight and low bullet that, like your dad's 1-iron, finds the centre of the fairway at about 240-260 yards off the tee. Personally, I don't have the strength or confidence to hit a 1-iron and the only time I need a shot lower than a 2-iron stinger, is when I'm on the green. So, I guess that wasn't much help.
