I want to talk to you about club selection.
Now we all have different levels of fitness so some will hit the ball further than others but it’s important that you find out what your distances are.
So what I would suggest is if you can find a range such as this where you can hit ten 7 irons. So you hit them down the range and pace them out in calm conditions. Ideally if you can find somewhere if the wind’s blowing you can pace it out into the wind and back from the wind.
Take the average yardage of your 7 iron, then you’ll be able to gear yourself accordingly.
The 6 iron will go approximately 10 yards further than your 7 iron, 8 iron ten yards shorter than your 7 iron using the same swing.
So it’s one swing for all clubs. The club is designed to hit the ball different distances.
Length of shaft and loft on the club face.
That’s an important exercise.
So you can stand up there knowing you can hit your 7 iron 150 yards for example, and you’ve got a 140 yard shot then you’re going to be hitting with your 8 iron, and so on throughout the set.
So it’s important to learn what your yardages are.
