    • Hi, is there a preferred amount of hip rotation in the backswing? I have been taught 45 degrees (and then another 45 degrees in shoulder turn => 90 degrees in total), but I can't really see why.  I guess there may be a risk getting the club too far behind you, but otherwise? I experimented a bit, and I can do more than 45, in spite of my age   And it makes it easier to get inside-out and avoid over-the-top. But maybe that's correcting a fault with another?
    • I still have the clubhead speed to hit a 3 iron cleanly, but it isn't as consistent as I want it to be.  I have now dropped the 3 and 4 iron and replaced them with a 4 hybrid.  There is a bit of a gap between my 4 hybrid and 5 iron, but overall I am happier.  Another of my regular four ball has a 7 wood, and finds it to be his most consistent club and gets him out of troublesome lies. You have definitely done a good thing.  Though dropping the hybrid is more debatable, but if the wood is more consistent, go with it
    • I imagine the loft is more like an old school 7 wood. Heaven Woods! 🙂 
    • Whatever works right? So what are the specs on this lil gem?
    • Yes, a 9 wood. Picked up a new TM  M6 9 wood on a whim, and at a price I couldn't say no to. I have been hitting it much more consistently than my 4 hybrid or my 4 iron. Much steeper angle of descent, this club does a much better job of holding greens at that 180-190 yard range that was always difficult to get any bite on in my advancing years. And I got rid of that darn hybrid hook. I can take the ribbing from guys asking if I want to move up to the ladies tees. They shut up when they see the results.
