38, 37, 75. Played a new course that was pretty wide open. Conditions were fair. I was smashing the driver and had tons of wedge shots. Missed a few birdie putts but nothing within 12 feet. Pretty good day though.
I went through the digging stage as well. For me, it was my backswing. If I picked my club head up too soon in my backswing, I would start my downswing super steep. I started working on the "low and slow" backswing. It helped flatten out my downswing.
Definitely a slice. I was doing the same thing. The ball is actually going straight off the club face, but with side spin. When the ball slows down, it starts turning right. Fortunately this is not the slice that is the hardest to fix. Your club is more than likely square at impact, which is good, but your club head is moving outside-in through impact. FIX- change your swing path to inside-out.
A buddy, during a scramble, hit driver off the deck from 210 yards out within 5 feet of the hole. Impressive part was we were on about a 40 degree uphill slope hitting to an elevated green over the hill we couldn't see. We thought he was joking when he pulled out a driver and called the giant fade a "signature" shot.
I hit a 3 hybrid with a little draw and couldn't keep it on the short side of the green. I was a bit closer actually, but wasn't putting. I range everything I can, and have a skycaddie I use as backup. My distances are very close.
Nope, Lazer rangefinder, flat, calm. Measured it back to the flag after the shot. It was legitt, I was I the same boat y'all are, didnt want to believe it...then he did it again. I dirst time i saw him drive a ball, I wanted to call BS. believe me or not, that's not going to stop him from doing it.
I know his 5i and my 3 hybrid were right together. We were playing in a scramble tourney a few months back, we had 217 to the hole and he dropped it on the back of the green, straight over the flag, and left us a 35 foot putt. Do the math, the guy can smash....he just can't putt. :)The only PGA tour average that means anything is score.
I'm not real sure what all his precise club distances are. But you couldn't hold his FJs with that little 4 iron. For someone of your stature, you sure are a weak one. Now go crazy with that knowing I could care less what you think. And my guess is...you're an idiot, and insecure.
I just said big, strong, and flexible...he came back with exact #s and all freakin state QB (like that means anything).
Ego check....I'm just under 6 foot and average 273 yards off the tee, so I have no means to flex my pecks and argue with someone about club distances. I saw this guy hit that distance regularly. It's something you see and say "no one is going to believe this". But being able to hit it that far has caused him problems on the short end. That was the only...
