Well, I think I know that of a regular tourney, but I guess the single iron game is prob different.

That's something each group will decide on I thought? Also, I've never done a single club type round before either. Should be interesting.

Yes, each group select their own. I knew that much too. I guess some strategy involved. Just curious.

Forced carry over the ravine from the 1st hole blue tees is about 180 yards.  Similar on #4.  May affect your choice of single club?  Unless you plan on bunting your tee shots down to the gold tees.

180? 8 iron :-P

Yeah, would think bunting would be best on back end. I don't see a whole lot of use of loft except par 3s, but I guess you can bunt them too.

Aah, one of those new 21 deg. loft 8 irons.:-)

post #351 of 552

Yea if we are playing the blues with one club only. I am thinking my 190-195 club. Hopefully I wont end up in a bunker, that would suck. This way I am pretty much going to be able to reach all the par 5's in three and probably all but one par 4 in two, and be able to reach all the par 3's. Not too bad.

Pretty much. He plays some game improvement irons, strong lofted clubs. Let him enjoy saying it's an 8 iron, we all know its basically a 6 or 7 iron in better player clubs. :-D

Just messing. That still some flight for mid/short iron.

If we are playing a one club challenge, I think I'll just go play my third from the drop area on forced carry holes and save the ball. ;-)

Yeah, it's a 7 iron in loft and length. But hey, it's still my "8" iron by the number on the bottom!

Yeah, it's like a handicap adjustment for lofts. :D

Meh, I'd be just as happy with clubs with "normal" lofts. I always disclaim any shot I make with clubs at a certain distance with "this is actually a club higher than the number says" if someone asks me what I hit.

 

I'd actually like to get clubs with more standard lofts, and am looking at getting some soon. Probably not by this weekend though.

I need all the help I can get.  I don't care who I fool.  

 

When you get new ones, maybe we could swing a trade.

Just messing with you dude. You hit what you hit as long as you like it. I dont' think standard lofts of 'players iron' these days are really standard either. Oldies from 70s/80s will tell you up and down all about it all day.

I wasn't upset, but it does annoy me that lofts have gotten so cranked on game improvement irons. I actually mess about with some old Titleist Lite100 blades, lucky to get an 8 iron to go 150 with those. I am more wanting the different clubs because I don't need the help getting the ball in the air that these clubs offer.
