5-iron should go roughly 10m more than your 6-iron ... If it does and you are not happy with the distance your problems are much bigger than simply reshafting the 5 iron

By that definition, Duval hits his 5i to whatever distance and then backspins to -8 meters.

The question was targeted at the general populace not you, Bruce Banner.

Guy, that is Sham we are talking about...

But to clarify, if I am not wrong, we were playing off white that day for some strange reasons I cannot remember. Right Sham?

All in perspective lah ...

I used to drive 180-200, which is what a lot of you who played with me saw

Now ... 200-220 ... which to me is really nice and long, but still short by some people's standards

Occasionally, I will hit a drive 250m, which to me is %#$@%#$ long, unfortunately, can't seem to repeat consistently

Corn is easily longer than me with his normal drive, don't even bother about his good ones ...

Sham ... is from a different planet ... and sometimes he sends his golf balls back to his home planet as well .. lol!

I suspect Sham and Tourswing are aliens.. They are sent here to study the humans. Finding out our weaknesses and maybe one day take one of us back to they planets.. (aka MIB)
