personally i think 6500 yards is just about right... ... as long as the challenge is maintained in the course design. a good short par four will encourage the use of a fairway wood or long iron off the tee... and discourage driver use by placement of strategic bunkers/rough/water/trees... of course on a poorly designed course the driver-wedge game that is encouraged just isn't right. as with all holes a good drive should be rewarded, but slight errs should be penalised...
i think with the shorter irons your hands should be infront of the ball... draw a straight line from your left shoulder to where the ball would be for a 9 iron (center)... your hands should be somewhere along this line, which is infront of the ball at address. ball position: driver should be opposite inside of left foot (right hander). Then equally spaced to centre are the irons, with the 9 iron being in the centre. teeing up: for the driver and woods the ball should...
just a few questions... to help understand the problem which clubs are all going the same distance? all irons/woods/'all of them' and how far? are you measuring these at the range? do you tee the ball up for all shots? and how high? where in your stance do you tee the ball for Driver, 5Iron, 7Iron and 9 Iron? what is your typical ball flight? really high or very flat or about right... -ash
normal white wooden tees for driver. as said above i don't need to tee it up that high as i have a relatively shallow faced driver. i just bought a pack of the tees tiger uses... like the stinger tees... pretty nice, seemed to have held up well after a couple of drives, and they are relatively soft too. for irons i use the lowest 'height-set' tees. their virtually indestructible... made of a soft plastic so no marks... and always are set at the perfect height. if i want...
haha... yeh i know... i just gotta save up the cash for it. gonna probably opt for another CG10... 52 or 51 degree, depending on what's available.
first... get a lesson... a pro will be able to give you a much better diagnosis and fix than anyone over the internet. but... you might want to try putting some impact tape (masking tape will do) on the face of your driver when you go to the range next. hit a few balls and you'll see exactly were you are striking the ball on the face. it sounds like you're 'topping' the ball (hitting the top half of the ball with the bottom part of your clubface) resulting in low...
