Jim: As you use your 1-Irons more, your confidence will grow and I think you'll find there really is not much need to fade or draw the ball. Last weekend I was playing in a seniors tournment and ended up on the #6 fairway with what should have been a "must-draw" shot about 90 yards to the pin. My playing partners "dared" me to hit it straight over some 40-foot trees. I just knew my 1-Irons would easily do the job; I told them I'd try the shot for $20. In short, that was the easiest money I made all day! One nice easy swing with the PW and I was on the green, about 14 feet from the pin (which I couldn't see). These clubs will do the work for you every time!! Hit em straight! R2

Because I haven't had time to work with the 1 iron driver I have been using my Burner. In order to miss a trap on the right side of the fairway I had to play to the left and had a tree in my way. I was too close to it to get my 6 iron over it so I tried to play a draw that didn't come off. The hole was an uphill dogleg left so I didn't have much choice.

Jim: Man, you had a TOUGH shot!!! Keep in mind that you CAN fade/draw the 1-Irons, but you have to open/close the club face more than with a traditional club. The 1-Irons just want to hit the ball straight!! Next time you get to the practice range, work on some fades/draws with your 5,6,7 and 8 irons. Get a feel for how hard to swing and the amount of "correction" to make to get them to do what you want. I am discovering that if I let the clubs do their job and just hit everything as straight as possible, I stay out of trouble and don't end up "playing army" on the golf course! Isn't this a FUN game??!! R2

I was able to work the ball right to left a little at the range but when I try a fade I just get a higher 1-3 yard fade which usually isn't enough. I guess I'll have to think more off the tee. Don't get me wrong I love the 1 irons, I've hit some beautiful shots.
