Utilizes an unconventional approach of all of his irons being the same length, 37 1/2 inches, which is the average length of a 7-iron shaft (his favorite club). Has names for all of his clubs, for example his 60-degree wedge is named "The King" after 1960 Masters champion Arnold Palmer and his 6-iron is named "Juniper" after the sixth hole at Augusta National.
