I've never been a player who plays straight blade irons, because my ball-striking isn't all that great. I need a little bit of forgiveness. I still have to play with the misses. Like No. 17 on Sunday at Honda -- on the Bear Trap -- I kind of stabbed at it, but it still flew pretty straight and I was able to make a par when I really needed to. It's good to know that even if I mis-hit it, I'll still be OK.
