Now after a winter of hitting the gym my driver distance has increased durastically.
Driver: 290 (over 12 drives varrying from 260 into a strong breeze and 330 downwind)
3 W: 270
21 H: 240
My irons haven't changed distance alot but my driver is a lot better. If I can drive like I did this past Saturday then I suspect my handicap could drop into the single digits with more practice.
Those carry distance or with roll?
And 260 against the wind? That's pretty good, you're a definite long bomber!!!
I'm still happy with my new best drive, so far. Certified 275 yard carry with range balls, with Callaway Big Bertha 10,5. Wind was only slight right to left breeze
-my best distances, total distances, with range balls.
-Driver solid hit: 260-280 yards
-hybrids 21deg/24deg: solid hit: 215 yards
-irons probably still follow the same old distances. I try to only bomb driver because it's always a perfect lie - on top of the tee!!! Gotta use those perfect lies in my opinion.
52deg wedge: i don't even know
56deg wedge: i don't even know
60deg wedge: I don't even know
PW: 115 yard
9i: 125 yard
8i: 135 yard
7i: 145 yard
etc... (would that be accurate to estimate long irons, like that? Relaxed swing and good hit.
Often times I can manage the course with mid irons and hybrids, especially from close tees. So, I don't often times use long irons too much...
Short game lesson is planned for next weekend for pitch, lob and chip shots. I'm quite good at bunker shots though, I often end up in bunkers as a high handicapper!!!
