I would, it would mean I was hitting it one handed. 

 

It would mean my 7 iron had about 60 degrees of loft.

What if you started hitting your 35degree iron 100m?

Exactly 

I have no idea what this means. 

to lay up, lay out doesn't even make sense

he is going to hit a club that will go 100m so he can lay up from 135m out, because 135m out is too far to go for a green so a lay up is required and is the future of becoming an a grader

He felt bad enough about it to get fitted for new sticks and it seems to have worked.

I'm a mid single figure player and I've been using irons toward the game improvement end of the spectrum. They are very easy to get airborne and that's why I went to them as I was having trouble getting my mid irons high enough.

 Took my 7 sets of irons to the range today and I've gone retro. I'll be rocking my Tommy Armour Silver Scot circa 2006. Sure the mishits weren't real good but when I middled them I felt like a real golfer again.

Anyone who gets up at 6:30am to go swing his newly fitted clubs is actually insane.... Here are some pics of my "new" clubs in all of their shiny glory.

Whether you think you can, or think you cannot, either way you're probably right...

as previously mentioned, the offset on the game improvement irons will definitely have an impact on your shots compared to the Apex irons.

you will either be hooking them big time or overcorrecting and pushing them right as your timing goes out the door

I knew someone would have to call out the croc after I saw it in the picture whilst uploading... Not my style I prefer old man leather thongs/sandles but the fact my wife thinks they are good is a little dissapointing at best :-)
