here is mine as compared to Sham:



my PW is abt 125m carry => # 7 iron-wedge

50* is abt 115m carry => # 8 iron-wedge

52* is abt 110m carry => # 8 iron-wedge

54* is abt 105m carry => #8 iron-wedge

56* is abt 100m carry = #8 or #9 iron-wedge

58* is abt 90m carry => #9 ironwedge

60 is abt 85m carry => #9 iron wedge



I very embarassed !!!!!

well, i suppose the gap works for me... its all about the distance that you play it to...

my PW is abt 125m carry

50* is abt 115m carry

52* is abt 110m carry

54* is abt 105m carry

56* is abt 100m carry

58* is abt 90m carry

60 is abt 85m carry

so i just gotta make sure that i'm able to play to my distances

Wah... by looking at the distance and not having 62 and 64, I have one question... what is your favourite club for distance less than 85m?

depends on the shot required i suppose, it would normally be my 56 or 60 which i'm decent at controlling my distances with or if i'm actually lucid on the day, i should not be leaving myself with distances that i cannot handle...

The reason that i'm asking is because i always have problem with playing 50m and below. Half swing with the 60* would be perfect 50m for me but 50% of the time, I duff it... super $%^&*()*&^%!!

That's y I try to use 56* more which I have problem to control below 50m... and who said golf is easy...

oh... yeah, my worrying distance is also ard the 60m to 40m range but i'm better now that i hinge my wrists less for those shots... and instead of my normal 1 or 2 practice swings, i will take up to 7 or 8 practice swing to try and get a good feel for the distance...
