Was out playing my 2nd 9Holer since coming back to golf and played not too bad. 9 Over for 9holes is square on my handicap and I was pretty happy with that. However it could have been better if I had a better idea of the distances I hit my new Taylormade Burner 2.0s.
Seems as if I'm underestimating by approx 10-15m a Club partly because of them being a better club than I had a couple of years ago when I stopped and partly because I'm still now 100% on where I am in my own ability. (I'm playing a lot better than I expected.)
On one hole a 165m Par 3, slightly downhill I hit 6Iron. Shot went where I wanted it but pitched a good 10-15m further than I expected it (8foot short of the hole and about 2 foot offline. ) and then ran to the back of the green.
It got me thinking about some of the Golf VLogs Ive been watching on Youtube. Most recommend that you learn what distances for each club are and your carry distances.
How do you work that out if you dont have a driving range or one of the new fangled electronic machines that can calculate shot dirtection/spin rate/ball speed/clubhead speed/carry distance etc etc etc.?
