Subject: Formula for Consistent distance

Force equals mass times acceleration. F=MA

Why can't people hit 3 or 4 irons? Because, first of all the shaft is too long, it's harder to hit. Second, they swing tentatively because most folks have no confidence in that club (if your 7 iron fits you for example). Third, the head is lighter. (The loft angle is stronger too - requires a solid strike. Let's leave that for now.)

If the head's lighter, the mass changes. The longer shaft means the acceleration changes because you swing tentatively or have trouble making good contact, or both. So changing those 2 factors yields less force.

Now, on an Iron Byron, conventional golf clubs work fine; a machine always hits the sweet spot and doesn't swing tentatively. A machine also doesn't think. You don't need single length irons with an Iron Byron.

Single length clubs are all the same weight, so the mass stays the same. The shafts are equal length, you only make one swing; with more confidence you make good contact. So the acceleration remains constant. - you get better distance. But - but - you need the clubs fitted to you. Otherwise you throw the acceleration factor off. (An Iron Byron doesn't need custom fitted clubs.)

We're humans, and that is a factor. A properly tuned piano has sharper tones in the high octaves, and slightly flatter tones in the low octaves. Why? Because it sounds better. Why? Because we're humans and that's how we hear music. A computer will never calculate that answer because computers don't hear music. Golf is the same. If you're confident, you'll strike the ball solidly. That's a human ingredient, like the piano sound.

With 9 different iron lengths, lie angles, and clubhead weights, "ya ain't gonna have no confidence." And when you hit the ball poorly, you'll yell out obscenities. That sounds as bad as the out of tune piano.
