Subject: Links2000 Clubs, I have them!

I have the new Links 2000 irons that are a complete set of irons 3 through sand wedge, based on the trouble wood/iron design. These clubs actually look more like a wood then an iron and are very handsome, and different looking.

I went out today for nine holes with my wife and the following is a report of what I found.

On the 1st tee I topped my tee shot and it only went about 50 yards off the tee, this only left
me 375 yards to go to get to the green on the 425 yard par 4. Instead of hitting my usual 3
wood, I decided it was time to try out the long irons and took a poke with the new 3 iron.
Wow, it went 200 yards straight as an arrow, something that happens about as often with
me and a 3 iron as me getting an eagle. I then tried out the 5 iron from about 170 yards
out, put that one two feet off the front of the green!

It is no hype that these type of clubs are as easy to hit as a seven wood, they really are,
and you get a lower ball flight then the wood, but higher then an iron.

On the next hole I put my approach shot with a seven iron from 145 yard, one foot off the
green, I then proceeded to chip up to one foot away with the 6 iron, these babies are even
easier to chip with then any conventional club I have ever tried.

These clubs feel very stable and are truly easy to hit, all you have to do is take a nice
smooth swing like you would with a fairway wood, if you try to muscle it and take toupee
sized divots, you will end up pushing or pulling the shot. Every nice easy swing ended up
long and straight, just the opposite if I tried it with the Fat Shafts or any other
conventional iron I have tried. At impact these clubs feel mute, it has a feeling like you
are hitting an old persimmon wood, not an iron. Those who require the "forged" feel and
all of that rot, need not apply. I could never understand this logic anyways, why would
you want to know if the shot was bad by the way it felt, is there someway to change the
swing results after impact, otherwise who cares??

The only bad experience I had with this set is the Sand Wedge which is vaguely shaped
like the Alien, I wasn't sure if you opened the face up at address like a conventional club,
or closed it at address like the Alien. I'll have to give Edwin Watts a call to see what the
think about this.

With this set in my bag, I can remove about three fairway woods, the 5, 7, and 9. So far
these clubs live up to their hype, and then some! These clubs are a good ten yards further
then my Fat Shafts, easier to hit, and easier to chip with.
