    Just got back from the range, and I'm starting to like these clubs more! I am hitting the ball very straight and am getting good height on most shots but I am having a little difficulty getting good distance especially in the longer irons. the long iron game has never been my strong suit so it's probably just me not the club, hopefully I will start to get more distance the more time I spend with them!

    Like limp said don't care so much on how how far you hit each iron, but definitely know how far you hit each iron.

    He will probably gain distance as his form improves anyway. The main thing to work on right now is solid contact. Most hockey players play golf decently because of the similarity of the two swings. Just keep playing and having fun.

    I'm going to say this now and understand that this comes from one of the bigger club ho's on this site:

    Those Pings will suit you just fine for a long time, they are well made. Don't buy the marketing hype of improved irons.

    My Pings are 14 years old and I haven't hit a set of irons that are better, and I've hit a lot.

    Look at the irons you play Jim, I have a huge hard on for the Ping i3 blades. I've been searching ebay and the like for a decent leftie set to play around with.

    They aren't leaving my bag anytime soon. I may play them until 2024 when they become illegal and then I still may play them. I'm actually looking for another set just to have.

    I'd have a tough time giving up my mizunos but for the right price, anything is possible

    Ping Zings are one of my all time favorite irons. I have always felt so confident with them. They are extremely forgiving. Behind the Eye 2s, they are next favorite iron.
