I played in a scramble with one of our golf pro's from the clubhouse last night. Their is a major, major difference in watching a long-ball hitter crush every shot when he has a single-digit handicap as opposed to a long hitter who sprays it all over the course. The kid put a ball on the green pin high on a 163-yard (from the tips) par 3 with an 8 iron. He's 23 years old and hits blades. Truly one of the longest and most accurate hitters I have ever played with.
I use a hard PW for 163 Yd, how is 8 iron hit 163 long. Certainly nice he hits it that accurate thought. I like to do a light 9 iron for a par 3 around that distance always gets me within 10 feet. I am only 19.
