A friend of mine calls that the "top golf" effect. But i think loud groups of people who dont care much for golf itself but are out on a range hitting balls is nothing new. It doesn't bother me, but i does others. I come across a situation like that so infrequently that its not worth getting steamed up about it. Confronting them doesn't change anything and is more of a waste of your time than it is the other people.
Yeah, the colors match way too close between a "perfect shot" and a "shank".
Perhaps, it's possibly better for the OP to just ask one of the mods to change the title to something like "How often do you hit the ball solid enough to consider it a good shot?" rather than sticking with his own definition of "Hitting the sweet spot".
Wait..you shank the ball 72% of the time? Wut?
The wear pattern on my irons and hybrids tend to be darkest very slightly towards the heel. Thats not center contact per sea, but i never have the feeling that i mishit the ball.
