It's been about 4 years since I played golf, but I hit this club right off the bat long far aand straight. It actually shocked me that I got the distance I got. I am not a long hitter but I airmailed the green from 180 withis club. I know airmailing the green isn't great, but now I have an idea of how far away I can be when I hit it. What a joy too finally have a club that will go 200 yd, when you planned on having a club for 160 or so. I highly recommend the 9 Rh to anyone who needs an easy club to hit.
