The 65-20-15 idea seems logical to me. It is safe to assume I will only 1-putt occasionally and thus for any chance at Par I need to be GIR to get a 2-Putt Par, and then my 1-putts would be birdie, not to save par. To get a GIR I need a good approach shot and my best approach shots are from the fairway, not the rough or from behind a tree. If I want my approach shot to be from the fairway I need to land my tee shot in the fairway. Thus, to me the Tee Shot sets up everything else so it makes sense to devote substantial time to that.
I did recently spend time specifically on my long irons because I was hitting the fairway with my tee shots but then pushing my long irons right so I dedicated a lesson and practice time just for that for a couple of weeks, That was to address a specific weakness and will not be my permanent practice routine. Unfortunately, I am now noticing that my driver is suffering so maybe I neglected it too long.
Thanks Erik - I should've know it had been discussed in times past. Funny thing is in '07, golf was no where on the brain - just motorcycles and music. These days, still dream of maybe riding again, still play music pretty regularly, but golf has become that sport I have learned to love. Thinking next round at the home course will be a 5 club round. Just to see how well or not so well I do.
