Sorry for the confusion - his shafts were all 1-2" longer than standard length. My 6-iron was the same length as his PW. His 6-iron was probably the length of my 3-iron. He looked really weird at address with his irons sticking way out.
I think I must be misreading this or something:
I am unsure of the meaning of this paragraph.
Anyway, I have heard of people getting their shafts shortened to improve distance. That said, just in terms of simple physics, there is no denying that longer shafts enable a faster club head and therefor longer ball flight. I mean, there are limits to what is allowed. But Dechambeau has got people talking about all irons with the same length. His wedge may have been of that design.
Whatever. The fact is that we all have something like an ideal, personal club length. "Longer is better" is nothing approaching universal.
I had the opportunity to play Pinehurst no. 2 for free which was pretty incredible. I even made birdie on the par 3 15th hole, which if you do so with a caddie you get a little gold coin that says 2 on 2.
The memorabilia in the clubhouse at Pinehurst was impressive as well. Like I said I played for free, but I would have paid to play it once.
