You need to reassess where the lost shots are coming from because if your scoring around 100 with 250m drives that are in play it doesn't even really matter if you get those drives up 300m because it's not your drives that are killing your scores.
What are your avg. GIR? My guess is your are not converting those 250m FIR into GIR which makes pars a lot harder to come by.
Just my two bits.
101 is my handicap i made up when i joined this board. i wanted 101 proof but it only allows 4 characters, i had 101 in my profile but a mod deleted it for some reason. i dont know the last time i even shot 101. however, i could manage that with a putter and one hand. my fir and gir is 50/50, either i hit them or i dont.
big if? why are distances always an if on this board. anyhow, my lost shots come from consistency issues with getting stuck or lazy and putting hiccups. which is why im working on three swing shapes - to find which is perfect for me and iron that out.
im working on a lot of posture/ ball placements/putting. hell, im working on everything, my woman is really really annoyed by it. this is probably my 4/5th swing change in the last year; im down to three finalists. i swing all day long, even if im not at the range or course. im outside or inside with a club or without one. hell, i do weight transfer drills on the way to the toilet then on the way back too for freaks sake - i work like im trying to be a pro. in reality i call it golf ocd.... i just want to be a "SOLID" golfer one day - im searching for "MY" perfect swing.
