Currently i'm using really old irons which are standard length, though i have to bend my knees a little more than usual and my upper back more than usual, i used another set of irons which were 2" inches over the standard and they felt too big and awkward, the charts say i should get + 1" clubs but most people say these are too long and 1/2 an inch is long enough, does anyone else have similar stats, and if so what size fits you?

It is a bit more complicated than just height.  Check out the PING fit guide as a starting point. The best approach is to get a fitting from a good fitter.

The standard length varies ... 5i was once 37.5 in the late '90'. For some, the standard is now 38 inches, for others, 37.75 in in a 5i.

What I am trying to say is you need to find someone who will fit you as to length and lie.

I would ignore what people say, and look at what the ball does as to length and lie.

Length not only depends on your height, but also arm length... which is why a true club fitting pro is needed.

Yep. Good points. For me! posture plays a role and the fitter can see. Now my base is wider as I load my quads so I've made several length / lie changes and check the contact on the bottom periodically.

    • Adding tackling to golf could make things interesting...
    • Rugby League (not Rugby, that means Rugby Union) isn't really like American Football, but it is a faster and tougher game and some of the players only wear very light padding. Most wear none. Do not mistake "Rugby" for Rugby League. My point is that if you think he's talking about tackling and you look up Rugby you'll see Rugby Union, which is a running and passing game. They don't tackle like in League. I'm not making a comment about American Football. I love it.   
    • No - but if you said that the article said that the vaccine rather than the virus caused these issues it would be shared around the vaccine skeptics within seconds. None of them would read it and it would definitely qualify as "research".
    • Day 79.  Got video today, I have to process to upload to evolvr.  I did a wall drill on video and also did an attempt at a slow swing with a 6-iron on video;  did some practice with each prior to filming. 
    • I want to see them try to turn that into a "Get the Vaccination" TV commercial.
