  1. There's quite a good bit of fine advice flying around here lately and was thinking I'd start this thread to consolidate some of it for us "bogey(+) player" types. One tip I've heard of is to take one extra club (say 6i instead of 7i) if the pending approach shot calls for the same club you'd select every time by default, i.e.: 7i. I think I'm in this default-mode quite solidly. I have a gap chart I've created for every stick I have (sans putter of course) that I look at for almost all approach shots after I take a LRF shot at the flag. If the LRF says "149", I just grab my 150-yd club (7i) and try to execute the shot. If I happen to be online, I generally am short, so the "add 1 club" tip may apply pretty darn well. I will try this on the next outing for sure. What are your best general tips you have for us to improve our on-course management? Thank-you all in advance Spies!
  2. I'm a great believer in the theory that says we are all born with a swing. We just need to take up the game and discover that swing. A good teacher can help bring that out in us or we can discover it ourselves as we learn the game. Along with that inborn swing comes a shot shape. It can be a gentle fade or conversely a gentle draw. It can be a dead straight borer, a high or low bender. Whatever it is, it becomes our go to shot. The shot say where on a par five that takes you three shots to get there, it's that second shot - the lay up that you know will pretty much land and roll up to where you want it to. At my club the10th is a reachable par five but for whatever reason sometimes I just want to play it as a three shot hole. I hit 3 wood from the tee and that leaves me probably the most important shot of the hole. It sets me up for my third which is a gap wedge of about 100 yards. My layup shot then is the one and I hit my go to 3-5 yard draw, usually a 5 iron that puts me in the mayors office and possible birdie city if I get my wedge approach right. My go to shot is that 3-5 yard draw that I can comfortably hit at will whenever I want. What's your go to shot?
