Let’s face it. The reason irons exist is for accuracy and shot consistency – to get the ball as close to the hole as possible and as consistently on any approach shot or par-3 tee shot into the green.

The reason there are several irons in a set is of course to provide us golfers with different irons to hit the ball different distances. And the way the different irons have been designed to hit the ball different distances is by making each iron with a different loft AND with a different length. The lower the number on the iron, the lower the loft angle on the face and the longer the length of the shaft, graduating down to the higher the number on the iron, the higher the loft and shorter the length.

"Working with Jaacob's swing speed training programs I increased my speed by 12 miles per hour in one month. The game is a lot more fun with the driving distances I'm hitting them. Now I'm reaching greens in two more often. Swing speed training really works."

Premier Member increased Golf Swing Speed to 130 Mph

"When I first started the swing speed training I was very skeptical it would do anything for me because I was already swinging at speeds close to 130 mph. But I wanted to get to the next level and be able to compete in Long Drive Events. So I gave it a try. I gained 13 mph in just one month of the basic swing speed training."
