what is your go to shot from 100 yards in the fairway? - Page 7

post #109 of 231

Stock 100 yards with no wind is a 3/4 52 degree wedge.

Choked up 56*, and I'll take a little off the back swing.

If there's a good tail wind I may just go full tits on my 60* but that will just make it.

Or, depending on the day, full swing with a driver!

without wind this would be my shot.

52 deg wedge

Stands a little smaller and open

make a smooth 3/4 backswing 

I speed up true the ball without rushing things.

I'd like to change my answer to full tits as well.

played the shot in my last round after hooking my drive in the trees i had to lay it up.

i had te feeling i just slightly overhit it. i was shouting the ball to get down, but the ball just came back at me after the bounce.  holed my 3 feet par put

Nice smooth swing with the 52...

Depends on the pin. More often than not its s knockdown 52 with enough spin to bounce once and stop if it lands on flat ground.

3/4 gap wedge
post #117 of 231
It would be a nice and easy/full swing of my PW for me!

I only hit my 56* wedge just shy of 90 yds. I love the 100 yd shot, though, because it's a perfect GW with a 9 o'clock backswing with the arms. I love that distance.

This morning I tried this shot about 4 or 5 times since we were talking about it and for the first time went all out on my 56. Was successful 4/5 times.

This is me almost to a "T", except my GW is 51°.  I can hit it 95-100, but that takes a full swing, and I like to max my wedges at about a 3/4 swing.

I might try a take a bit off a GW (50) or hit a hard SW (54), but I'm starting to think 3/4 PW (46) is my best bet.

Skulled 3 wood. a3_biggrin.gif

100 yards is right inbetween my sandwedge and gap wedge . .so it depends on if I'd prefer to miss short or long.  My preference would be to be able to miss long and hit the gap wedge.  I love my gap wedge (Wilson Staff) wheras my sand wedge (a Nike of some kind) is just ok.

Sand or Gap wedge..
post #125 of 231

I don't think I can even hit my sand wedge 100 yards.  I'll try tonight.  It will likely ruin my entire golf game/swing, but I will try.

post #126 of 231

101 yard shot with exactly 3 feet of backspin, resulting in a hole out.

 

All kidding aside, it depends. If I have green to work with, a 56* or even 50* with a lower trajectory and skip it in. If I need to fly it all the way to the hole, hard 60*.
