what is your go to shot from 100 yards in the fairway? - Page 4

post #55 of 267

I gotta go with a full 58* club. Perfect full shot ydg for that club in my arsenal.

After posting here, I went out the next day and faced this shot on the first hole. Had a steady breeze in my face so tried for the knock down PW and hit it over. I wouldn't of won a bet with that shot!

3/4 swing 9 iron laying up to roll onto the green. Sometimes a half 8. I can't make a perfect full swing with my PW like the single digit handicappers.

I would say a full pitching wedge I tend to hit it kind of high and lazy but it tends to be spot on for that kind of yardage

Depends upon where the trouble is.  But usually a SW unless there is trouble short then a gap wedge.

Punch a 9-iron. Works like a charm.

It depends on the conditions and the individual hole. Soft or hard green? What is the pin position? Where is the trouble? Is it windy or calm? Where do I want to be putting from? Is a high shot with spin appropriate or a lower shot that runs appropriate? Soft green with calm wind and level green around the cup I will hit a full 52 degree wedge. Windy with the pin back on a hard green and a green sloping forward I would hit more of 3/4 pw and let it run up to leave it below the hole. Of course I can't always hit it to the place where I want to be putting from, but it usually doesn't hurt to try!

Yesterday I had 3 situations 100 - 105 to the pin but straight into the wind so I opted for a choked up 3/4 PW instead of a SW - worked great each time..

it always "depends", so you have to assume....

 

do you have a club/swing combo that carries about 100 yards with little roll or backspin - I think your 'full 52 wedge' met the intent

 

(no wind day, level shot, good lie or tee, not under a tree or on the moon, nothing extreme about the green, etc etc ets)

No traps? No water? 

Putter.

post #65 of 267

UW (50 degrees), light full swing (take the club all the way back, let gravity do most of the work going down).

post #66 of 267

I faced it yesterday on my second hole. Had to lay up after a lousy drive.Choked down wedge, low dart, right at the hole to four feet for par. Pissed 'em all off.

post #67 of 267

Depends how I feel on the day. In the main I'd probably hit a solid 52deg wedge slightly back in my stance but on occasion I might see the shot as a lower 3/4 punched PW (48deg).

post #68 of 267

Provided the wind's now howling, and a center pin, a smooth AW

Pitching wedge for me , smooth 3/4 swing

Great recovery.

 

You should play with grown ups.  12 year olds are really petty.

52* for me...

Update: it was actually nice enough to play today... My eighth hole I hit 4w off the tee had exactly 100 to the middle (pin middle left) so really about 102... hit my little chippy PW... And holed it out for a 2... Easiest $5 I ever made
