Okay in this segment we're going to demonstrate the nine iron. The nine iron is still a, what's called a short iron. It's a forty-four degree loft. So you can see the club has a lot of loft on it, a lot of angle. So the purpose of this club is most players are going to hit this club somewhere from a hundred to a hundred and forty yards. On the pro tour they're hitting it pretty far, but that's their job. They're top pros. But for the average player, the recreational player and the developing player, this club should be used somewhere between a hundred and a hundred and forty yards and what you want to do with this club is you want to come down on it, get the club underneath the ball. Take a little bit of dirt with it and get it up high because you're trying to get on the green with this club for the most part and the higher you get it when it lands on the green it's going to stop. So this club can also be used for shorter chips and pitches, but the majority of the time after you've hit a decent tee shot you're going to want to try to get on the green with this club. So it's a little longer than the sand wedge and the pitching wedge so I'm increasingly going to be getting a little further away from the ball, and so I just line up to it. I have the club in a neutral angle to the ball, perpendicular to the line of flight, and I just relax and that's a pretty good shot. So that's what you want to do is use this club from a hundred to a hundred and forty yards and if you practice it a lot your scores will go down.
