follow up for any that are the least bit interested......Course is not all that bad. Lots of waste areas were created, which make it resemble a wannabe links course. Some golfers do not clear the waste area. The greens were nice, a little fast. The rating and slope have been changed from what is shown online. Course still plays short. The par 5's are a joke, but even so, it is not an easy course. I shot an 85 and would have broken 80 if I sunk more putts. no doubles though and I had a few GIR. The fairways were deep grass, freshly mowed, but I think they were allowing the grass to grow out. Easy to take divots. I would play it again.
I get ya now, sorry. I thought you were thinking the other way like there is no difference. I was like What??? Big difference when I can hit my Ping Eye2 7 iron as far as I hit my Miura 8 iron or my Mizuno 9 iron.
But for the MFG's they don't mind changing it because to them, saying I can hit my 5 iron as far as you hit your 4 makes some gullible people buy their irons.
Yeah thats why I refered to irons per loft. I mean calling a club a 4 iron doesnt mean much when it used to mean a 3 iron or 2 iron. And even then they are off by a degree or two. But on average people hit 30 loft irons about the same as 20 years ago.
I was in a golf shop the other day and noticed on the Hogans they don't even name them numbers. They use the loft number.
Its also a classic method of regulating distance while using a very consistent chipping motion. Developing the skill to regulate distance by varying the length of swing takes a lot of practice, using a variety of clubs makes it a whole lot easier to learn. In the long run, both methods of controlling distance are valuable, and well worth learning, but the multiple club method is a great way for a beginner to start.
