Cipher...you then see things correctly and the likes of me and  Phil and Trevino don't.

I guess not because feel is real and they do exactly what they say they do as proven to you.

This speaks to what Pelz thinks.

Mark Broadie in "Every Shot Counts":
In 2004-2012, driving contributed 28% to the top 40 golfers' scoring advantage, putting contributed 15%, and all other shots accounted for 57%.

 

Also, "shots inside 100 yards excluding putting" is NOT the majority of that 57%, either…

Hello gentlemen,

I've just joined and there are a lot of useful and interesting articles on here.

As someone that has a higher handicap, my view is that my long game is more important to sort than my short game.

The last three rounds before christmas I played and scored 94, 94, 96 and my shots off the tee were costing me 10 shots per game. I needed to work on the quality of my ball striking. I have had a couple of lessons recently and the difference in my game has been significant. I shot 91 the other day but the main difference was that I had more chances to hit the green in regulation, my short game is usually reasonable but I hadn't played for three months so i was pretty happy.

Looking ahead I feel quite optimistic about my chances to regularly shoot in the 80s regularly, mainly due to sorting my long game.

My next planned games of golf will be at the belfry in two weeks, playing all three courses! I'll need to either play before then or get to the range

Welcome @Astrath !!!  You are going to find a lot of guys (including myself) that have very similar views to you.  In fact, here is a similar thread that you might like that discusses how to practice based on this theory.

 

Enjoy your time at the Belfry!!
