As a mid-high handicapper I would say that certain types of balls fit my game better than others. I can say for certain that I do not play better with a tour ball but my score would not vary that much between a ProV1 and Velocity. At 68 years old I do get a bit of additional distance off the driver with a low compression surlyn ball and get additional roll which is welcome. Balls like the TruSoft (now TruFeel), Srixon Soft Feel, and the Gamer Soft (RIP) are my comfort zone.
4 rounds this long carnival weekend.
81-70-74-71 (+8) Really good performance. I´m hitting hybrid or irons in par 4´s off the tee to have longer irons to the greens (my course is short 6550). It really helped me to practice those mid and long irons from the fairway and rough, At my course i usually hit wedges all day long and only a couple of long irons on par 3´s. This practice it´s really paying off and i´m sure it will help me a lot when going out and competing on 7000 yards courses.
Exactly.. around 100 yards wide. You have to test your other long clubs but normally your dispersion decreses in proportion of the length of the shot.
As scott states.. "if you have to hit 4 iron or less off the tee to avoid penalties, the hole gets too long so it´s better to just hit driver" this doesn´t apply on drivable par 4´s.
Because of knowing my dispersion and aiming properly I reduced my penalties and lowered my scores. It´s the same principle Iacas teach us with his shots zones and stuff.
