A few years ago, Ian Woosnam opened the new driving range at Tilgate Forest, (a very nice municipal course not too far away from me)...
He was on the range hitting balls out of sight and after he had given his demonstration he asked if anyone had any questions.
"How do you get "stop" on the ball?" I asked him.
"What do you mean?" he replied.
"Well, I watch you pro's hit balls" I said "and you can stop the ball with any club. A 9 iron, 7 iron, you can even get the ball to stop dead with a 4 iron. How do you do it?"
"How far do you hit a 4 iron?" he asked me.
"About 160 yards" I replied.
"Why the [****] do you want to stop it?" he said with a wry smile.
