why dun u quit 60 and employ the bump and run when situation allows for it.....rather than flop it up high. I know it looks good but its also a risky shot unless u keep practcing on this club

just my view, dun kill me

He got no choice... his shots are always on the wrong side of the green. Either thick rough with little greens to play with or must fly over bunker type, so generally, he have yet to try out a bump and run shot.

I'm with MC on this one. Just because one is not able to perform a club doesn't mean one never will.
It probably means one has to take more time to master it.

From personal experience, I could not use a 60 before as I always would top it. But thru learning here and experimentation, I learnt how best to use the club e.g not on hard lies & ball sitting on some grass. And I also learnt to accelerate thru the downswing to achieve the lob shot, scary as it may sounds but one really need to go fast on the downswing.

Ditto for my woods, I swore off FW wood for the longest time until recently when I re discovered I can actually hit them. But that was due to me finding the right clubs then anything else.

So in gist, dun give up on your weak club.
Keep on trying.

If you base on number of times we used the driver, irons and putter per 18 holes.... the putter is the most important and most used club in our bag, but thats half the story!

On stats, we buy more drivers than any other clubs in our bag! putter and wedges about even but I would incline that putter is the least we purchase.

We can putt near to pro standard, but it is difficult to go near a Pro standard on our wedges, irons and Woods !

But to experience the Sweet spot(or the cum), Driver would be rated the Best ! but again thats only half the story!

I visited golfamigo few times lately, he fixed my driver with the K. I swear, my slices turned to fades or straight shots with it. Same swing. Hope to come by this Friday for some putting enlightment with mr. Middleton.

and thanks for the tip! I realize I always forgot to aim more left. My flight mates on saturday better watch out hahahaha

Bro, maybe u understand me wrongly.
What I'm saying is do not use the 60 for every shot. If there's a lot of green to work with, it's better to run the ball up rather than flop it (which is more risky).....

Of course, when there's a bunker in front of you, guess u will have to flop it and here's when bump and run will not work

Just my view though Smile

i cannot use a 60 well... good days no issue.. bad days.. top... thats why i change to 58... Razz

For me.. putter is the most important.. that is also the reason why I only recently change after 5 yrs in view of better technology. Driver for me can straight can liao.. thats all i asked.

what better way to practice than to do it all the time?

its not flaming. this is discussion.


i used to do bump and run all the time. i actually think i can still do it now. i am actually very confident of running my shot with either a 56 or a 52 degree wedge, and even up to my 8 iron.

right now i am just committing to 100% use of my 60 so that i get as much practice as i can. i actually like the control of a 60 shot better than the 52/56 that i used to use all the time...

No worries bro, yes this is healthy discussion
I do agree with you that we need practice.
But I do not think we can practice on course. Practice should be done at the range.

But if u have no time on range and yet still want to practice, then I guess no choice but to be on course liao Smile

As long as u can flop and bump, then its good enuff liao as u have variety.
