what is your go to shot from 100 yards in the fairway? - Page 5

post #73 of 231

3/4 52 degree wedge. Also depends on what kind of shot I want to hit, where the flag is, etc...

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

12 year olds don't play verifiable skins.

Nice smooth 52* GW.

post #76 of 231

depends on conditions but either a 3/4 punch 52* or a relatively full 58*. i prefer the 58* honestly.

100 yards?

 

#15 wood (37 degrees-equivalent to approx  8 Iron) ....but hey I'm a lot older than you and have almost twice your handicap.  LOL

Punched 3/4 50 degree wedge

Can hit 56 degree wedge full but prefer to avoid that shot unless the pin position, hazards etc are crying out for it

Smooth full swing with 54.

A 50* GW, choked down about a half inch to shave off a few yards.

3/4 swing, 52* 

post #83 of 231

Depends on where the pin is.

 

I can hit my 56 deg SW about that length but it has a good deal of spin on it with the Pro-Vs I use. I'd probably go with a 3/4 52 deg GW as well.

Make that a full swing on my TM RAC 52 degree wedge. This is, now, my most comfortable club for anything near the green.

Easy 3/4 PW - locks in at 96 yards every time.

I don't have a go-to shot from 100 yards, which is a large part of the reason I suck.  I believe I had 3-4 wedges in my hand this past weekend at around 90-110 yards with a wide open flag and I only made worse than par twice.

We need to work on this for the next 4 days then!!!

Seriously.  I don't even have a "locked in" full swing of any club to the nearest yard, let alone a 3/4 swing.

1/3 swing Driver

post #89 of 231

I have a very old, forged Tommy Armor pitching wedge, circa 1970.  I hit that sucker, full swing a 100 yards on the dot.  My favorite club.

post #90 of 231

Probably my worst distance right now. I'm accumulating some mental scars lately from missing that shot too many times. Just for fun after our regular Saturday game we play an extra hole from 100 yards to the island green for a few bucks. Lots of balls in the water weekly (including a lot of mine). The foursome in front of us all hit the ball in the water last week.

 

I don't carry a club for that shot so if I'm playing pretty well I take a little off of a sand wedge and if I'm not playing very well I'm a little better at taking even more off of a pitching wedge and hope it holds the green.

 

(Then cross my fingers and hope for the best).

 

Last year those little shots were my strong point but this year my luck on them has vanished (so far). Of course last year I practiced that shot a lot out in the yard and this year I haven't. Maybe practicing actually does help. Ha ha!
