PostSubject: how far do you hit with your 7-iron?   Tue Feb 22, 2011 3:07 am

Used to be able to hit 150m with my 7i in the range but jus one day it dropped to 130m on a good hit and I cant seem to get it back to 150m... already wacked another 1,000 balls since and not 1 reach the 150m mark. Anyone got any tips or good swing seq video to share?

Clubs I'm using - TM Burner TP 2010 with NSPRO 950gh stiff

About 130-135m.

150m carry or 150m total? Very important to understand this fact cos alot of us always take out total distance instead of our carry distance as a gauge. And when you hit that 150m at the range, were you on the upper deck or did your ball take a good bounce?

Better to base your distance on average, if that is 130m-135m, so be it, dun have to keep forcing yourself to get that one time hit of 150m. Normally, my course distance is around 95% of my range distance. So just play the game with that thinking, forcing the shots will do you more bad than good. Since you have 13 other clubs less then putter, getting another club to 150m should not be an issue.

hmmm...lets see, if small green and windy condition especially with hazzard left and right, my 7 iron will give me 100-110m carry as I will keep the flight low but pretty confident its going to be straight. If I hit it very correct, it should stop around 3m radius fm my landing point.



so yes, My 7 iron gives me 100-110m carry.

Good morning PG. haha.. my range on the 7 iron is from 1m to 150m (very very very good shots which is like once!). Like what the other says, I will use a longer club to get to the distance instead of 'forcing' a shorter iron to go the distance. Very Happy I don't hit far, so my margin of error is considerably shorter but then again, I need to rely more on my woods (like a certain GF, though he is much better, ie 4 over 18 holes) to get to the green. Very Happy

Lunch? How about this Friday? Where are you working? We can get the rest ?

Cheers.

wah Er grandmaster is really turning to big gm...good stuff

My course distance off deck is abt 90% my distance off the range mat. So i almost always take one more club, sometimes even on tee box.

150 i use 6 iron sometime 5, sometime 4 hybrid.

I've given up trying to get more distance. I was told by a wise uncle (actually, he's my optician) that golf is all about course management. So what if you don't hit the ball a mile? Hit it straight. Know your limits and play within what you are able. Don't try to be a hero... that's your opponent's job Razz

It's not how you drive, it's how you arrive.

Blee, oddly enough it worked the last time I played at Ponderosa in that I didn't slice my driver shots (what a surprise that was for me!). But, I found myself having a very flat swing plane such that I pulled 2-3 driver shots Sad Those which I hit right went well and got some distance too (but not long enough to beat TFP or Kookk or Mdude).

Yah, but I really appreciate that tip from you and Miz. While I don't play well, at least I don't end up having to aim way left right now Smile
