You can't give snowy 10-10. You give me 10-10.

As for playing again, sure... more than happy to learn from my coaches Smile

Yeah, absolutely! No use trying to whack hard to achieve 150 m with your 7i if the ball sprays left or right. Accuracy is of utmost impt in approach shot and it is far more vital than a gain of 15-20 m in distance.

Anyway, I hit almost 150 m (carry distance) with my 7i. If you really wanna sextisfy your ego, you need to generate maximum lag coming down at the ball in order to achieve optimum clubhead speed. To do that, you need to drive your hip hard and fast at the ball, and your hands must be leading the clubhead all the time when coming down at the ball.

Hope the above helps ...

Enjoy,
Turbo

I think distance is less relevant to consistency.

I am about 125m -130m carry with my 7i, its pretty short and some days i overhit it. I rather be very consistent with my 7i and hit it 125m 90% of the time than to be 150m sometimes.


Duffy told me...fix your tempo and the distance will come.

So today when I go range, it will be my objective for the day

Bro, ours is a game destined to happen. Hope to play with you soon. Level can (after that we can adjust our strokes). Lunch can.

Don't worry i am a fair golfer, we start level, adjustment can be made on back nine. I prefer playing in singapore tho, so MBGC is probably the best unless i can find u a kranji voucher for sunday PM

If bro gary lin really want to get 150 from 7i, then try the hands forward at setup, ball back and keep flat wrist on impact. Ball will draw, misses are overcooked draw (assuming swing on plane, no casting/over the top)

Best example ive seen of this technique is DGman, his 8i can reach 150, smooth tempo. Sign of really good smash factor. At least from my untrained eye
