I'm certainly not an expert but I'm reasonably sure it's not an equipment problem or equipment mis-match. If there's really a bigger than usual drop off in performance below 7i, you're either doing something differently with longer clubs (tempo, trying to lift, etc.) or your swing flaw (we all have them) gets accented with longer clubs (which is normal). Suggest you get some video of you hitting both clubs, maybe with a pro giving a lesson, to what is causing the issue.
While this is totally tongue-in-cheek.
Jordan hanging out with Brooks reminiscing.
Jordan: Brooks what’s it like to win 4 majors.
Brooks: It’s nice, and easy.
Brooks: Jordan what’s it like to have double digit wins.
Jordan: It’s great.
Aah, the good old days.
Bought some new (used) Mizuno JPX 900 Forged irons a few days ago and they looks great overall but a couple irons have some scratches on bottom of the head and saw some recommend using sandpaper to remove those. Just wondering if anyone has tried that and how it turned out. Definitely want to take good care of these irons so don't want to damage any of the more during this process haha
Came back with a 77 today. No birdies, 5 bogeys, 13 pars. The best part, NO double bogeys.
I did look at my handicap index today, and there was a little exclamation mark next to it. Clicking on it, up popped a notification that I've hit the 3 stroke soft cap, and that will suppress any upward movement by 50%. Very interesting.
