Must have hit a rock or pebble and noticed a small nick out of my Apex 5 iron sole. Is this worth bugging out or will it smooth itself out over time? Silly question but will this nick cause any playability issues with it being on the sole and being a forged club? The ball flight seemed lower yesterday but that could well have been me mis hitting it instead of the club.
Thanks Buckeye. I'm sure I've slowed a bit, and I need to just play the rust off my game. I did check the lies on my MP14 irons and they off by 2 to 3 degrees. It's been probably 6 or 7 years since I checked them. I'm going to do a lie swing test on to see where I actually should be, then have them adjusted. I searched online and it looks like the Mitzuno's are about my only option for a 6 degree upright lie.
BTW, I always have a buckeye on my desk that my father in law gave me. He was a Buckeye as well.
Good observation. In 1970 a guy by the name of Herbert Benson wrote a book called the Relaxation Response. In it he studies "Fight or Flight " the reaction when confronted with a frightening situation, the body prepares itself to either fight the threat or run from it. The muscles tighten and breath is short. The problem is our bodies do not know the difference between a real threat and a perceived one, so if that 3 ft birdie put is perceived as a threat, we go into fight or flight.
