just 1 fairway - an 18 degree 5 wood. I find I can hit it almost as far as my old 3 wood off the tee, and it works a lot better off the fairway. Next longest club is a 21 degree hybrid, so the distance gapping is ok.
I know. I've followed along. I'm not sure why that's a response to me. You don't want to fill your mind with swing thoughts on the course. Not even at the range. Nobody I know or have taught would ever say that.
@iacas I had a problem where I was taking a good practice swing with swing thoughts to shift my weight forward on the downswing. But when I addressed the ball those thoughts were pushed to the back of my mind and thoughts of where and how far the ball would go along with thoughts of hazards in view were forefront in my mind. So the bad no weight shift squatting swing that I have swung thousands of times would come out. I do not think I have seen anywhere on this forum a mention to fill your mind with swing thoughts especially when making a major change like I am even out on the course. Make a swing where you are all in on the change and not care what the ball did. That is what help me today. Thanks to Evolvr Brian.
Right now I have a 13° and 18° woods in the bag. I do not have good luck with the 13° off the deck so I use the 18°. I hit them halfway decent off from a tee. If the ball is sitting up in the rough I will use the 18° without hesitation. I also have been swapping a 17° and 21° hybrid in and out of the bag and when I get comfortable with them I can see the 18° wood sitting it out. The distances between the 17° hybrid and 18° wood favors the wood by about 15 yards when struck cleanly. Edit: Clubs are Nike Covert Tour models so the lofts can be adjusted.
