Subject: An eamil we received

An email we received:

I have now been able to get 12 rounds in with the Pro-line irons you made me, (complete with Driver and 3 and 5 wood), and I am blown away!!!

I emailed you just after my first round or 2 in late Oct. '15, and you gave me some tips to maximize my playability, and you were spot on with your recommendations.

First off, one does need to "learn" to swing the 4 iron with the same comfortable tempo'd swing he would use with the 7 iron. That was the toughest thing for me, but after I settled in, the 4 iron, and all the irons, are perfect!
(I had not been able to hit anything lower than a 6 iron for the last 15 years; how fun!)

Just to give you an idea of how well I am playing, I ended up a 10 handicap at the end of the '15 season, averaging between 82-84 on any of the three, par 71 courses that are part of our club, "The Legend Clubs", here in the greater Milwaukee area of Wisconsin.

Earlier this week, I had a chance to play another 4 rounds in Cabo, and one of the rounds was at The Dunes by Davis Love III, at Diamante, ranked #38 in the world. We played tee box #2, the second longest, and I shot an 80 and won all the money out of 8 guys.

I know 80 is not that impressive, but I have to tell you, I had 2 triples that were not because of bad shots per se, but rather blind shots that should have been good, but not being able to see, they were actually "too good" and gave me penalties. I literally was poised to shoot arguably somewhere between a 74 -77. Wow!

This last fall, a few of these same guys were taking "pot shots" at me as the 1 iron clubs don't equate to "TaylorMade" or "Ping", etc. and they were asking me if I got them at a rummage, or at Target. I would just smile and lace another 270 yd drive down the middle...

After this last week, there's a lot more talk about my clubs, but now they're asking more questions and asking if they can see them. Results speak (and shuts idiots up!) ha

I was interested that you mentioned speed or strength of swing. I inferred from your post that you swung the club harder for a three iron than you did for a seven iron.

I have never even thought about doing this. I hit every full shot from driver to sand iron HARD. Unless I'm deliberately hitting a half shot.

Why would one actually TRY to swing "less" hard with a full seven iron than a full three iron?
