A properly fit club will provide on-center impact (between the ball and clubface) and improved ball striking ability to control distance and desired trajectory.

||Toe: Length may be too short
||Heel: Length may be too long
Off–center impacts produce slower ball speeds and results in shorter distances.
R & D test results with a 6 iron
• Impact ½” off center equates to 5% loss of carry distance.
• Impact 1” off center equates to 8% loss of carry distance.
