what is your go to shot from 100 yards in the fairway? - Page 14

post #235 of 267

For my distance-challenged self, I'm hitting a full PW. I've actually drained 2 from this distance in the last two years. Put me 30 yards closer or further and I'm a lot less sure.

Used to try and knock down a short swing PW but now I hit a normal 54 wedge. Getting the ball to stick is tough as our greens shape up. Yesterday I hit a purposely high 8i on a 163 yd par 3. It hit the green about 10 yards in bounced and rolled off the back into a bunker. Barely left a mark on the green, they feel like hard rubber.

I've answered before - my full SW was my go to club

 

I've changed in the last year.  A comfy GW is a lot more consistent for me than leaning on my SW now for that shot.

 

I'm getting cleaner contact and lot more loft from my SW now  I've gone from:

 

PW:  120

GW:  110

SW:  100

LW:   60

 

to

 

PW:  120

GW:  110

SW:   90

LW:   60

If the green is flat, and somewhat receptive - I'll hit half swing/pitch shot with a gap wedge.

 

If the green is flat but hard, I'll hit half swing/pitch shot with a  55.

 

I wish I had that low/spinner shot, but I've always been a high ball flier.

Full 55° sand wedge is right on 100 yds for me.

Could not hit my Vokey 56 quite 100 but switched to a TM R7 TP 55 that matches my set and it's helped my game a ton. Changed up the gap (51) as well. Do still have a Vokey 60° that is my go to from 85 and in.

100 yards out I normally hit nice steady 52 degree wedge choked down. If I want a really soft landing or if green is sloping down away from me I hit big 58 degree wedge.

post #241 of 267

100 yards for me is a strong 56 for me.  I have trouble dialing back my PW to that distance.  I carry four wedges, but one is a 64, not a 52.

 

If it's going to be tough for me to hit it a 100 yards I just do the low finish and pull/hook it a bit.

Depending on the conditions, and circumstances could be a 54, a PW, or a 9i. In fact, the other night I was practicing hitting my 8i to 100 yds. :-D

50 degree wedge.

post #244 of 267

thats a full 54for me but not a distance a like. I much prefer a pitching type swing with my wedges which puts a 54 at ~65 yards which is a good yardage for me

post #245 of 267
Full 52.

Last year, full PW. Only played once this year so would probably still use my PW.

Gap wedge, full swing (depending on the variables of the day of course). I'm naturally a high ball hitter so if the conditions are right, I'll use a gap wedge and come in high and soft with a little bit of spin. It's a nice shot to watch and I usually catch myself admiring it. My gap wedge is a 52*.

post #248 of 267

A nice full SW for me seems to do the trick from that range.

The most consistant part of my game seems to be my 50-130 yard shots at this early stage of my golfing journey.

100 is not a good distance for me.  A little short for a PW, a little long for GW.  

 

I guess it would be depend on how I am hitting it that day, wind, etc.

Have you tried choking down a bit with a more "controlled" swing? I use a 53° with a slightly choked-down grip. The mental image I have is that I'm just throwing the ball up, similar to what I envision with my 60 - but with a much more aggressive swing to carry the yardage. Just curious.

post #251 of 267

Either extra "umph" with 60* or 3/4 swing with SW.

Now if you are talking 95 yds, that is my 60* wedge.  Perfect distance.

post #252 of 267

I like to play a 52 with weight on my front foot and forward in my stance and give it like 60%.

 

I never use full swing GW, SW, or LW

 

Always felt clubbing down a 1/2 to 3/4 swing will always be more accurate than a full swing shot.  For me at least.
