Welcome to TST.
Are all the 73's from the same course and same set of tees?
I know you said you did not want to move forward a set, but maybe try moving back? Or playing a different course?
Something to break things up a bit might help.
Interesting. Thanks. I was not really concerned about the 1/3 being accurate, but I had hoped the distance loss would be consistent (% wise) throughout the bag. It appears that is not the case. Edit: I think I will try them anyway. I will post a review after I have tested them out.
I think it could help you a lot. IMO if you can hit the ball the farther, which would lead to more possible decisions than someone who can't, it would help you a lot. I see you are already a good golfer, but this book can be an eye opener. The "smart" play is not always what you may have thought.
