K.J. Choi buys Mizuno irons off the rack to play Memorial Tournament

If you're a golfer (and if you're reading this particular story, I'm not sure why you wouldn't be), then you've heard it before: Don't buy golf clubs off the rack. Have them custom fit for your best results.

That's why what K.J. Choi did this week was extraordinary.

With no tour equipment trucks at the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio, Choi was in a bit of a bind when he needed a new set of irons. He walked into an Ohio Golf Galaxy store and started picking through iron sets. As he tested set after set, he found the swing weights to be off on each -- save for one set: Mizuno Golf's MP-64 irons kept a D2 swing weight through the set.

That's the set Choi went with to play this week at Jack Nicklaus' tournament. The Round 1 result wasn't bad at all, as Choi shot even-par 72.
