To me the parameter you play in is determined by the controlled power of your tee shot. The best short game will not replace a 275 yard drive down the middle consistently. Bottom line if you hit 200 yards off the tee, that makes you a bogey golfer at about 18. You can lower it to 10 to 12 with an exceptional short game but you will never be 5 or 0. You can also have it 25 with a poor short game. The 0 guys hit the greens easily in reg and get up and down a lot to save...
I have the i701 tours and they are great irons. To me the Mizzies don't have a lot of feel.
That is interesting to me that humid air is less dense than dryer air, considering that a cubic foot of water is much heavier than a cubic foot of air and it is much harder to hit a golf ball through water than air. I learned something.
Of course, you could also, go to any putting green and make a 1 inch back and through stroke and see how far the ball rolls and progress from there. Its much easier if you know a 3 inch back and through will roll, say, 15 feet on a level green and 6 inches will go 30 feet and so on. Keep the same stroke just adjust the length back and through to the distance. Make the stroke with a quarter on the putter, so the tempo is smooth and accelerating through the ball, but the...
That is the idea, but doing it, as Dante instructs, your whole shoulder girdle is really free moving so yours may be dropping too much and hence the fat, behind shots. I have really given up on this method. I think the power is in the hands and the whipping of the club through for a solid release. Eliminating the hands, to me really takes out too much effortless power from the swing. I do not believe Dante really did what he "felt" he did, as is so often the case in...
These people who hit irons a long way also deloft the club a lot in their swing through a great hands ahead impact position, whereas we mortals allow the club to play to loft, if we are lucky, or worse, hit early and up loft that 7 iron to a 9 iron at impact with just a slight left wrist fold at impact. Ball goes nowhere, no matter what you do. Practice chipping a fair distance and feel the hands staying ahead through impact and continue to enlarge to a full swing....
Mostly answered above but the Japanese market is big enough to support several companies there and the Japanese are quite willing to pay a lot for what they believe to be superior products over those made in mainland China. (where all US golf heads are made except PING) Japanese irons are designed to be played on Japanese golf courses with minor grind changes from non Japan products and cosmetically appear to the local market there. Miura is a good example of a Japanese...
Look into the Tour Edge Exotics CB2, last years model but still one of the longest hottest heads out there. And, they make a 16.5 degree four wood. Downside is they are still $$$$, but well worth the money. These clubs can be custom ordered with virtually any shaft to any length and SW.
8 over for nine, seems that handicap will be going down real soon whether you take the lessons or not, to a 16 or 17.
Regardless of why you wear one, the glove changes the feel of the size of the grip and adds weight to grip/hand area which decreases the swingweight feel of the club. Thus, it is hard to wear one regularly and then not wear one for a full shot, too much difference in feel.
