A bit frustrated with my game right now.
Too many clubs i can not hit well if at all.
Handicap of 18 and due to a wager this idea is born.
Frustrated and challenged by my playing partner to a contest of a 18 hole match using only 4 clubs. I used a Adams tight lies 3 wood. A 7 iron, Sand wedge
and a putter. Shot my best round ever of a 79 with confidence as these 4 clubs have always been by goto clubs.
My 3 iron is a waste of a fine divining rod that I pull out occassionally just to remind me why i hate it so much.
Enough of the story...
The idea. a set of 5 irons all having the same shaft length as a standard 7 iron but different heads. (3,5,7,9.SW).
This way a a hack like me can get proficient swinging one club length all the time and just switch clubs based on distance.
A nice reliable set would have a driver, fairway wood, 5 of these same leghth irons and a putter.

||Three words: club head speed... and angle of elevation.
Seven words, seven words: club head speed, angular momentum and angle of elevation.
Nine words, nine wo....
So essentially you would hit your 7 iron further than your 3, and your pitching wedge somewhere in between.
||How about a set of golfing boots with
different heights of heel?
||Thanks Max, hard not to laugh, Maybe you can trademark "Plus x", as opposed to "Plus fours"
