You are doing what clubfitters call gap analysis. You've figured out your 5i and 4i go about the same distance. Thus, you may want to swap out your 4i for a 4H.
If you stay within Tour Edge, note this:
EX9 4H...22°...39.75" shaft
EXi 4i.....22°....38.75" shaft
...as the 4H has a shaft an inch longer than the 4i, you could have more than a 10-yard gap between the 5i and 4H. (Nothing you can't live with)
Then, you would have to consider the distance gap between 4H and 3H.
Note: What's the problem with your 3H? Your struggle with the current 3H may have to do with the shaft. It's a Black Tie X-Flex: 105 grams, 2.8° torque (lowT). That's one stout shaft. You have the BTX in driver and 4W, does it work OK in them?
I would suggest you get the 3H situation resolved before you buy a 4H.
I am overall pleased with my ball striking and my game. Handicap is on its way back down after a post-surgery surge last year.
However, I'm a bit perplexed. My ball striking is ok, consistently straight or slight draw. 7i is about 170 yds, driver about 240. My confusion is where the ball is striking the club face. It is about 1/2" off of center towards the toe. I'm setting up with the ball about 3/4" towards the heel and I don't feel like I'm standing up when I swing.
Any ideas as to what might be happening? I've tried standing closer to the ball, decreasing my spine angle on setup, moving the club further out at setup.
Thank goodness for more forgiving clubs!
Thanks for any advice in advance.
Now that I'm (somewhat) in shape I can appreciate a shirt that is a little more "fitting." You're right that it is pretty snug, but I think in a good way. But I can't let it shrink AT ALL nor am I allowed to gain any weight AT ALL if I want to continue wearing it. :) The Adidas polo is more loose fitting, and it's very, very lightweight. That one will be good for the hot days.
That is a nice combo! As far as the shirts go, for now, my rule is simple: no new hangers. If I get a new shirt, I get rid of an old one. I still have at least 2 or 3 shirts that are either XXL and/or old and ratty enough that they could use replacing. But a pair of shirts for a couple of more months and then, yeah, I'll have more than enough.
It might be worth noting that when stakes or lines define a water hazard, the outside edge defines the margin and the stakes and lines themselves are inside of the hazard. If the planks are defining the hazard, and it seems as if they are, I would expect that they would be part of the hazard and therefore an IPC.
