GOLF CLUB REVIEW (IRONS) 1995-2000
Recommendations:  (1) Before using the guide, determine the most important attribute you are looking for [Distance, playability or forgiveness].   (2) Starting at the top of the list, look only at those clubs that scored an ‘A’ or ‘B’ in this area.  (3) Clubs that are further down the list are not recommended.  (4) If possible, test the clubs in the table that meet your criteria on the course or range before buying a particular set.     Good luck...
