There's a reason @david_wedzik and I trademarked the phrase "Golf is Hard"®.
Here's a par three that is often a 7- or 8-iron (but can be a 6-iron). A driver on a par five. And another par three that plays from 190-220 yards.
In all three cases, you have about +/- 2 or 3° in which to hit your shot, or else we deem the shot "a failure."
Set your expectations properly, and give yourselves the credit you deserve when you DO hit a fairway or a green. It's phenomenally difficult!
