Cool, you could get away with carrying a 1/2 set.

I'll concede adding in all the extra factors - heck sometimes you have to hit a knock down 5 iron into a green from 100 yards - but -
Using a GPS made my game improve and was much more precise on club selection (vs. without - using yardage markers on course).
Going to a laser range finder shaved a few more strokes off above that.
 
All things aside - knowing and controlling your distances is one of many keys to unlocking a good score.

If follwed religously it would help people know their real distances...right???

I hit it to three feet at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island from 115. Normally that's between a SW and a PW, but I hit a 9I because it felt like the right shot. The wind was across, too. The tournament is a nice idea but doesn't account for the fact that better players who actually know their distances tend to hit clubs from a variety of distances way more often than those who think their 7I goes 165 when it really goes 155.

Agree 100% but for most (per my post right above yours) it could provide realistic gudiance to what players average disctance were...no?

0-90 56  degree SW I use all the time

 

I got this great free app for my android called shot tracker, You just select your club, hit the start button, drive to your shot and hit the stop button, then it shows you the distance!  After more than one shot with the same club it will give you your average.  Great app!  Also, use a free one called "Free Caddie" which gives you yardage to front, middle and back of any course.

I still don't know all of my distances in terms of carry for anything past 150.  I thought my 9-iron was traveling 152, but I took a couple of measurements today and they were closer to 162.  I've been working on getting a lot of smash and hit with the right arm now, so maybe that's the difference.  It's a touch hotter this month so that adds some yards too.  400 yards straightaway is 4-iron, 9-iron for me currently.  3-wood works on pretty much any tee where before I would be taking driver.  Probably less than 280 yards, but I never really pay much attention to it, since there isn't anything other than lateral trouble on the courses I play.  I hit driver something like 5 times in the last month.  Just don't need to now.  Things keep changing, so I've just started "feeling" the distances.  Needed some work on that for sure at first because I couldn't convince myself that I was around 2 clubs longer (maybe 3) than before.  People I play with are starting to notice that the sound of my shots is different.  There's this "crack" that wasn't there before and the ball seems to hiss all the way to the apex too.  I thought I was hitting it good before, but the wow factor just wasn't there apparently, judging by the number of people who say "wow".  When they inevitably start asking questions, I tell them to check out the sand trap, start reading and get to work.  a1_smile.gif

 

At some point, I'll pull out the gps and charts or rent some time with a Trackman fitter and have the numbers game figured out...

post #647 of 1774

Do you carry anything inbetween 3w and 4i?

post #648 of 1774

Depends on the day...if my golf balls are behaving themselves and going straight then I sometimes get more distance!  I know my distances aren't very linear, but for whatever reason the following is what I normally hit from those distances and it usually seems to work!

 

Driver: 270 - 290 yards consistently

3 Wood: 260

5 Wood: 230 - 250

3 Iron: 225

4 Iron: 210

5 Iron: 200

6 Iron: 185

7 Iron: 175

8 Iron: 160

9 Iron: 150

PW: 120 - 150 yards

52° W: 90 - 130 yards

58° : <90 yards
