    • In my practice routine, I’ve found that hitting too many drivers is a waste of stamina.  As was mentioned above, the driver is more forgiving.  Less than good swings can produce good results.     range routine:   50 ball bucket   section 1: warm up -5 balls with a 7, 8, or 9.  (Random pick from my left-middle bag slot.) -5 balls with 4, 5, or 6 (corresponding with the one above.  section 2: long clubs -3w off the deck until I hit 2 in a row well. -1 3w off a tee (assuming its good) -drivers until I hit 2 in a row well.     section 3: scoring rest of the bucket with mostly sand wedge. But, all various shots between 40 and 110 yds.     my best range days, I feel, are the ones where it only takes my 5 balls to get through the 3w/driver section.   I’m just more focused with a couple driver swings, rather than bashing a ton of drivers, knowing when I miss one that I can make up for it with the next swing.         
    • I think you’re right. It won’t be taken.  Do I agree with the basic philosophy of developing a good long game? Yes!  I just think you start with a good foundation and stretch it out. That is what worked for me and I’m happy for you if you found another way that worked for you.      People learn in different ways. You can agree or disagree. I can only say it worked for me. 
    • Thanks. Necrobumping now but flop shots is important for lob wedges as it´s the club I want to use if I am close to the green but have very little space to manoveur for the pitch or ship to stay on the green. So the S is not my club, I am probably getting the C though because I developed a phobia about missed chips! 
    • I disagree. Ok. But above..you’re suggesting your plan is a good one for others. Again, I disagree. And just because that’s how you did it doesn’t mean you’d be worse off having started with all clubs.
    • I was really just wondering specs but also when they were made and also what materials and i really need to find a heavier weight for my driver. the guy who runs the range said it probably would be impossible to find a wight but to just go with some lead tape. Yessir thats  the big lb 3 wood! I would definitely consider going with an lb 737 or 747 if i cant find a 727 4 and 8 iron . if i cant make this set whole if i ever save up enough id like to buy a set of the pp727 or pp737 blades that are on ebay every now and then. I have called Honma to ask them how the tour world 727 compare to the lb 727 but the guy i spoke with wasnt sure. i was told mine play more like beres and that i might not like the tour worlds as much but they look sharp to me. i am open to suggestions Thanks for the feedback fellas oh and by the way.....  By the way i went to the range today and i hadn't read any of your replies at that point but its creepy how you were right about me receiving a proper smiting! it was like a foreign set of clubs for a second there with the trajectory being super high today while before it was piercing and low.  Golf Gods got me for that one!
