Everyone wants forgiveness

 
Take it where you need it
 
If you describe yourself as a good or solid ball striker, these two shots still provide you with different challenges. You don’t need forgiveness in your irons on the short shot, but the longer #5 or #4 iron shot will test your skills and consistency.
 
 
If you’re consistent throughout your set, then a better players iron (more compact, possibly forged) is a great choice. If you start to lose consistency in the mid-irons, then consider blending two iron models through your set. A players iron for the shorter irons, and a more forgiving model for the mid and longer irons.
 
 
The shorter irons can be compact with a CoG that is a little higher, and closer to the face, with limited launch assistance.   The mid to longer irons can be a different model: one that offers a larger hitting zone and a little more launch assistance.
 
 
It’s about the distances

If you want to blend two different models into one set, then it’s not about the numbers on the sole. It’s about the distances you hit each club. As well as finding the perfect fit, we want to make sure you have each distance base covered.

Ten shots better

 
Consistency and distance control
 
We asked you to monitor your next round in 4 different areas. We stated that if you were in the 15-and-up handicap range, then there’s a strong likelihood you could improve and be 10 shots better. One of the areas we asked you to monitor was in the 100 – 40-yard range.
 
 
 What was your average number of shots to get down from this range?
Was it lower than 3 or greater than 3? If it was greater, then by how much?
 
 
Have you dialed in the distances you hit a pitching wedge, on a half, three-quarter, and full swing? That should be 3 distances you can hit confidently. Along with your PW do you carry a 50° or 52° (gap) wedge and have you dialed in the distances on your 3 swing lengths? That’s now 6 distances you can hit with confidence. Your sand wedge (probably 56°) should also add trajectory and distance options.

 
The ten-shot assessment
Book a session with us and let's evaluate your technique and your equipment. Dialing in the distance you hit your wedges will help. Improving technique, so you hit that number more often, is also important. Adding equipment options is another step forward. Let’s identify how many shots we can improve your game by.
