Alright as the year and season comes to a close, its time to update the What’s in the bag for the end of the year. I also thought it would be fun to include my stock yardages for each club. All average yardages were captured with GCQuad. Without further adieu here we go.

Today I call upon the collective wisdom and unwavering knowledge of the MGS community once again... I saw a post about a trackman yardage gapping session and was wondering how everyone has learned their yardage gaps. I apologize if the following seems like complaining but when you considering 2 yards is the difference between a 90% putt and a 15% putt, and 8 yards on the wrong green could make 2 putting tricky, I want to be as precise as possible. I was previously using the hitting bay/lauch monitors at the PGA superstore to learn my yardage gapping, tracking my average distance with each club for each session and taking out any mishits or generally bad shots. I had some pretty precise numbers that i thought were accurate until they changed the launch monitors to the GC2's (I think) and all of my numbers were a full club short. I'm assuming they spent money on new launch monitors because they are more accurate of course, which makes me think i've probably been playing a club short for basically the entire season, and I definitely fall short of the green way than I go over. I got to thinking about all of the different variables that come into play when finding yardages like the balls in there, the effect on launch, and spin, and of course I couldn't seem to find club head speed either, so I don't know if I was just swinging a little slow or something like that. It also made me think I should get the loft on each of my clubs checked for accuracy, and maybe get them bent a degree or two stronger because the 157 yard 7 iron that i thought i was hitting seemed to make a lot more sense than one that goes 145 yards especially considering the spin numbers looked pretty good with the trash balls that don't spin nearly as much as the ones I actually play. Hitting one piece balls into the wind off of a mat at a range with questionable yardage flags isn't a solution. I don't know which launch monitors I can trust, and if the spin and launch is accurate, and trying to track distances for shots on the course seems questionable because there are so many variables in every shot with elevation changes, wind, and pins that aren't in the middle of the green... So how do I find out accurate yardages for each of my clubs that transfer over to real playing situations? ...and should I consider changing my lofts slightly? Thanks in advance!
