Subject: Numbers don't lie

I've played six rounds with my One Iron driver. In those rounds, I'm averaging 8 fairways with my driver. In my previous ten rounds, I averaged 5.5 fairways hit. The One Iron replaced a Ping G410 with a custom shaft. I'm probably 10% shorter with the One Iron driver, probably due the 12% loft vs the 10% with the Ping, but the accuracy more than makes up the difference in distance.

I'm finding that my One Iron fairway woods are more consistent. Again, I'm giving up a bit of distance, this time I think due to the steel shafts. But my confidence is way up.

The biggest issue with the irons is getting used to the distance in the wedges. With the longer shafts, I'm hitting them farther, and my feel around the green is still evolving.

What I'm telling my friends is that if you don't play several times a week, or if you are just taking up the game, go with single length clubs. It is just a lot easier to manage.

I have a very bad back (level 2 spondylolisthesis) and I switched to single length to see if that would be easier on my spine. I believe this to be true. I played this morning and am ready to go again tomorrow. For the last 45 years, that hasn't been the case. I'm happy that I made the change and my group is asking me where they can find One Irons because they see the change in my game.
