From 210-200 yards

13 posts in this topic

Hitting my 3 iron to 210-200 is starting to kill my hands- the older one gets. Too much hammer time. I have hit a few hybrids and slowed down my fairway wood but it is not consistent. The 3 is more consistent but I still desire a smoother feel without too much pounding. I don't really like the look of the hybrid- rather hit a smaller fairway wood. I used to have a killer Hogen 5 wood way back when but it self destructed. Any suggestions on a successful long iron or hybrid or is there a "mini" fairway wood out there? Thanks

You could look into getting a 3 iron from a set of Mizuno MP-H4 irons... they look very much like an iron but have a hybrid construction. They are based off of the old Mizuno Fli-Hi clubs (you could also look into one of those).

Here is one of the Fli-Hi models:

Definitely check out the Fli-Hi. You can also find some decent earlier models in used club bins here and there.

I know you said you aren't a fan of hybrids but I just picked up the Cobra AMP Cell 4-5 hybrid. Very iron like in feel and that's about how far it hit it.

I know you've said that you have tried them, but maybe really give hybrids a chance.  They're easy to hit, and once you start hitting it well, the appearance won't bother you so much.

21* Callaway X Utility, look and feel of an iron with a slightly wider sole and a shallower face.

I use an old 7 Wood from 200 yards.  I'm more consistent with it than a hybrid, although a hybrid would probably be better from the rough.

I currently have a 22 degree Ceveland Halo which took the place of my 3 iron. It is the older model of the current Hi-Bore series of hybrids from Cleveland. They are pretty aerodynamic but still pleasing to look at during the address. Crisp feeling and good results from my experience with it. Hope this helps.

I like the Cleveland looks. I have a Cleveland 3 wood that is priceless. I'll look at it this weekend. Thanks

    • Video tape yourself making a slow backswing  to the length you want and hold the position. Make a mental note of what it feels like. Then try to make a swing and make a mental note of what the swing felt like, how much turn, how much did the arms move. Then check the video. See if you hit your the swing length you want. If not then do the slow swings again, hold the position you want. Then make another swing but this time try to shorten it up. If need to, swing like 50% backswing turn rates. Check the video, how closer were you? Keep doing it till you get the swing where you want it.  This is what I do to try to teach myself to swing shorter. It will take some time, but it gets easier over time. For me, my driver is a between A2-A3 swing length feel that gets me A4. 
    • I nit pick a lot.  I'm smarter than the average voter. I actually read the voter pamphlet. I study the issues in the campaign and research the candidates. There's a lot of propaganda out there. For Trump, where's the beef? Trump steaks? I don't see any beef. I just see a lot of hot air.  I'd still like to know how he's going to kick 11 million people out of the country without having a secret police force. It'll involve racial profiling and people will have to make sure they have their papers in order. They may even be citizens but still get caught up in the sweep because they don't have their papers in order. Does everyone have their papers in order? Plus who is going to pick next season's crops? I know that's stereotyping but still.  His statement on immigration... all countries have shown themselves to be vulnerable. So... no more immigration? We're a nation of immigrants. Tariffs worked really well for Herbert Hoover.  Hillary is no saint. That's a given. But damn.  
    • Steve Stricker is grouped with David Toms and Rich Beem. How many fans can correctly identify who isn't the past champion in that threesome?
    • Since it's law in Virginia that a Governor can only serve on term in office at a time it makes it difficult to gauge their time there. During his time as Governor the state of Virginia was one of three states to earn the highest grade in terms of management in a report by the non-partisan Pew Center on the States. Also, Virginia took first place each year from 2006 to 2009 in the "Best States For Business" rankings published by Forbes magazine. I think he's a good pick as VP. Virginia has gone Democrat the last two elections.  For his term in the Senate he's got a very good relationship in working with both Democrats and Republicans.   
    • Don't you think deporting 11 million (or whatever the figure is) undocumented/illegal immigrants will take a pretty big government? How about building a giant border wall? Or the 35% tariff he would impose? Oh, and don't forget he promised not to touch entitlements.
