Simpletons Consistent Swing Motion
Traditional thinking has a golf bag filled with one long club, a driver, a putter,
and the 'control' clubs, the irons, consisting of seven, eight or nine different lengths. When Ben
Hogan was tuning up for a tournament, he'd spend nearly an hour hitting practice balls with 'each' iron, an eight
hour practice effort for just the irons .. not surprising with all those iron lengths.
For the 'average' player the problem with irons is this
You have to master multiple iron lengths instead of a single
driver or single putter.
Many times you will become proficient with one or two irons, maybe the 5 and 9 (or 7). You hear the same story over and over "I can really
hit my 5 and my 9 --- but nothing else". Know why? It's due to repetition. But achieving and maintaining consistent swing
motions for multiple length irons (i.e. seven, eight or nine swing motions for seven, eight or nine irons) is
more difficult than for only two lengths. And this brings us to Golfengineering's premise that there are too many lengths to
master to adequately program your irons without incessant shotmaking. And this is the issue Simpletons addresses.
Golfengineering LLC has given 'consistent swing motion' serious thinking and has developed a fresh approach to game improvement
for those desiring lower scores. It addresses the iron game with the next generation of irons, Simpletons 'two length iron
Simpletons 'two length iron system' consists of two groupings of irons, the high irons comprised
of the 7-8-9-10-11 and the mid irons 4-5-6. The high irons are technically matched to one another in this
group; they have the same length, lie angle and
swing weight. The mid irons are also technically
matched to one another within its group; they
have the same length, lie angle and swing
Simpletons 'two length iron system' design has the intuitive advantage of reducing the number of swing
motions from 8 or 9 down to only two (2) you need to master.
With Simpletons, you are encouraged to hit your 5 and 9 on the
practice tee because when you hit your 5 and your 9 well, you will hit the balance of your irons well.
The reason is that the 4, 5 and 6 irons are technically matched .. they all 'feel' like the 5 iron.
The 7 through 11 are also technically matched .. they 'feel' like the 9 iron.
This is a real game improvement concept because you can now
practice your iron game with only two irons instead of eight or more.Simplicity is better than complexity!
For those comfortable with their hybrid mid-irons, the Simpletons short set is the ideal complement.
The short set consists only of the high irons. Since these are all weight and lie matched with
the same length, only one consistent swing motion is needed for all your high irons!.
Forget multiple length irons
The solution to the iron game is simplifying it. By that we mean reducing the number of swing
motions you have to make. If we need to hit a shot 120 yards versus 150, we know we'll need to use a higher iron. The
essential difference in irons is their 'loft' angle with the 'loft' of a high iron greater than the lower iron. With higher 'loft'
we hit the shot higher and a shorter distance than with lower 'lofts'. Theoretically, If we could swing every iron in our bag with the same
swing motion and velocity, only then would our problem be really solved. We simply need to select the iron with the correct loft angle letting
the 'loft' determine the distance.
But remember, in today's iron sets each iron is a different length than its siblings. The iron set is
tapered so that there is a uniform 1/2", or so, difference between irons, number to number. So a 5 iron is generally 1/2" shorter than a 4 iron and
Multiple lengths add complexity to the iron game meaning that even when we select an iron with the correct loft angle we must still
adjust for the length of each iron. Different iron lengths mean each iron will require positioning either a greater or shorter distance away from the player's
body, and each iron will require a different swing arc.
All this adds up to 9 sets of swing motions and decisions if you have 9 irons in your bag. Such adjustments are readily achieved with
consistency for the pros who have put time in to hit thousands of practice shots, but all these adjustments related to tapered irons
are very difficult to achieve for the average player with less time to practice.
Simpletons reduces the number of these swing decisions to
a manageable two, translating to
a more manageable iron game.
Simpletons irons ... the path to golf transformation
Simpletons iron heads are precision cast to extremely tight design specifications for consistent
weight, loft and lie angles. Heads feature a deep perimeter weighted cavity for maximum mishit forgiveness ... extra muscle is placed
in the sole for improved lift ... a large quad-radiused sole helps improve shotmaking particularly on 'fat' hits ... at address, a player is presented
with a beautiful high polish finish, friendly wide top line and contrasting black and white face scoring lines to assist sharp shot framing at address ...
a large head offset enables proper grip placement.
All Simpletons irons are matched by swingweight so each iron, mid or high, will feel alike when swinging. The weight and lie angle
of the high irons are the same, and likewise, the weight and lie angle of the mid-irons are the same.
Simpletons come with Golfengineering's unique length architecture joined
with high quality unstepped matched Harrison Professional steel shafts. Soft traction Golf Pride grips
in charcoal black with trim accent round out a superb package of unique design plus the highest of quality. .
There are no miracles to improvement in the game of golf.
Buying a new set of multiple length irons every few years doesn't improve your competitive standing. It's only a repeat performance.
Einstein once quipped "doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome, is nonsensical". For real improvement, you
need to change your thinking.
Golfengineering LLC Simpletons simplify shotmaking in the
iron game. Instead of a complicated set of multiple swing setups and motions for every iron (typically eight), you have only two
with Simpletons. Harvey Penick, the venerable golf teacher, had the right idea. Use common
sense and keep it simple.
Common Sense ..
As anyone who has tried to break a bad habit knows, nothing lasting will happen until YOU DECIDE to make it happen.
No matter what the advertised claim and no matter how many honest faced actors attempt to influence you by suggesting
what’s worked for them will somehow work for you, you know any REAL change is dependent on yourself.
The question is whether one set of irons offers any real hope for improvement than another set.
We feel Simpletons does because it reduces the complexityof the iron game by having you routinize two iron
swings rather than eight or more.
Common sense will transform your game, not advertising hype.
Simpletons are available exclusively through
Golfengineering LLC, which has assembly operations in
Williamstown, New Jersey and Pasadena, California. Acceptable payment methods include checks, money orders
or secure electronic payment via Paypal. Items paid by personal check are held for check clearing.
Demo Club Program
Simpletons Golf primarily sells irons via the internet. For those individuals who would like to test out a club to see how it looks at address
and feels upon impact, we have created a demo club option. Simpletons Golf will provide a high iron (9 iron) OR a mid-iron (5 iron) for a refundable fee
of $ 30 prepaid. The club will be mailed to US based locations via Priority mail. The prospective buyer need only specify the flex - men's Regular,
Senior, or women's and if standard length is desired. Only one club can be delivered under this demo program.
The priority box should be saved for return mail. After evaluation, the potential buyer will mail the test club back to Simpletons Golf for a full refund of their $ 30,
less postage, regardless if they opt to buy a full set or short set of Simpletons Irons or decide not to buy whatsoever. The refund option expires
in 45 days from the initial shipment date from Simpletons Golf. Simpletons Golf will attempt to provide 'new' demo clubs but that depends on
demo club availability.
