Just wanted to add that i had this slip of a 13 yo boy in my group today. Played off 21, and only playing the game for 11months. Consistently outdrove me by 30-50m. Rock solid iron game. Reckon he will be off low teens before june. Really drove home to me the importance of timing and smootheness.

The "smoothness" thing is still a little disturbing.

Getting outdriven by this little runt forced me to review the short-comings in my own game.

Not that I am chasing distance per se, who can really turn up their nose at some extra length off the tee, just giving me the chance to hit a short iron in for my second shot would be a great position to be in.

The new irons have given me new found confidence, and think that now have it in me to get to low teens. This is something that i havent felt in about 5 years.

Distance is nice
Accuracy is often better
Not having 40+ putts a round is better still.
Low teens is easily within your reach mate, and it may not even require huge gains off the tee.

Lol. The reminder was to swing within myself and play within my strengths and limitations. I now believe I can shoot to low teens with my current game.

Ive recently came to the realisation that I subconsciously try to chase the bigger hitters off the tee. This usually results in pretty average results as my swing falls out of sync chasing power.

Short game improvement will get me to drop further. Just need some time to consolidare my current position and get to familiar qith my iron distances.

Do you reckon Sammi managed to get a few inches inside of him at any point during the round?

No chance. An inch maybe, but a few inches is more heat than what I am packing.
