In reply to: Bernard 's message, "Club length" on 23:09:18 10/02/16 Sun

I made the mistake of "second guessing" Mr. Lake's fitting formula because I "knew better" - I didn't! The first set I purchased was a #9 iron club length since that was a great club for me. The set worked well but I didn't get the results I was looking for. I called Mr. Lake and told him what I had done and he very kindly told me that I had made a huge error by not ordering strictly based on my W-T-F measurement. I purchased a second set that actually fit me properly (a #5 iron club length) and the difference was nothing short of amazing. My ball striking looked like a pro's after only one trip to the range.

Bernard: I highly recommend staying with 1-Irons that actually fit your WTF of 36.9", which in this case will be approximately the length of a standard 6 or 7 iron. The reason is simple: the 1-Irons will have a more "upright" lie angle of about 63.5*, which is the same as your old 8 or 9 iron. Hence, you will be able to play them closer to your body, similar to your old 8 or 9 iron. Your old 6-iorn has a lie angle of about 61*, and must be played farther away from your body. Several of my students play the 1-Irons, and have not had success doing what you are wanting to do. Stay with what David recommends and you won't go wrong! Take care, r2
