How would you hit this shot?


Recommended Posts

151 yards away from the green, in the rough?

 

How would you approach this shot? What club would you hit and what kind of shot shape would you attempt?

Any wind?  Front/back/middle pin? Hazards around the green?

 

Need more info to pick a club, but depending on all that it's either an 8 or 9 up and over.

We did this during one of my lessons. My coach set it up and said I can't go over i had to go around it. Much harder to do but it helped me learn how to hit a hook and a cut almost on command.

Depends on the depth of the rough, but most likely a full seven iron, start at the bunker, fade it to the middle of the green, leave myself a putt.

 Oh no you didn't... :lol:

Sometimes taking enough loft to just go over an obstacle and live to tell the tale and hit it again is better than playing a hero hook or cut. Especially if the lie sucks. This is course management stuff that can help keep big numbers off your scorecard. B) "No hero shots" as I call it. :P

I'd either choke down on my 3 hybrid and play a bump & run, or hit my 7i full, depending on how rough the rough is.

150 in the rough of the rough is deeper, then I would full swing a 9 or even PW, and play it short, if the lie is decent in the rough I would likely use 8 iron and hope for some roll out.

I would most likely take a 6i, open the blade up, and chunk it.  Then I would take whatever SCOR wedge I would use for the remaining distance, stick it by the pin and make the putt.

Normal 9 iron with a little bit of cut. I try not to over think shots like this. Worst case I catch a flyer and it goes 5 yards too far. Still not a terrible outcome depending on the pin location.

No he said I had to go around it. He knew I could hit over it no problem. It just got me thinking differently than full steam ahead. On the course I always opt to take the least costly route.

I love this post!

 

Normally 150 is a stock 9i. If it's sitting up in the rough, no change. 9i to center of green. Assuming a normal lie in rough, an 8i. If it's in deep rough, I would probably use a soft 7 and play for the back of the green. Better than being in those bunkers!

That's good. Curving the ball and lower scores are not always synonymous. Kinda what I'm getting at.

Don't practice what you won't do on course. On course, you would have gone straight over. THAT is not full steam ahead. That's taking what the scenario gives you with the least percentage of error. Course management. I don't like that he had a 32 handi practicing like that. You need control of basic shots first. And astroturf is not your friend indoors. Its easy to get away with bad swings that produce the results you want on astroturf. I'm a ball-shaping madman off astroturf. I hit it straight on course.

 

Sorry, got outside the box of this conversation and just trying to give something to think on.

I dunno.  I practice hitting draws and fades but only use them on course if I need to.  While it may not be feasable for you to hit a draw or fade yet with accuracy, if you know how to make the ball curve, I think it will help you learn how to hit it straight.

Exactly on the bolded portion. That might be one or two shots of 80 in a round. One can get to a single digit not trying to curve it at all is the message I hope Theo comes away with. And if there is a shot you don't have to, you take it if its the better percentage play.

 

I had a shot like this for my 2nd on a par 5 last round of the year. Had to draw it around a tree. Rough caught the blade and turned it over. "Whack." I did it perfectly the 2nd try, but the lie after the drop was better. (Point on astroturf being way easier.)

I only play a draw mostly because I can't hit a fade. It's weird being a double digit handicap and not being able to move the ball right to left as a right handed striker. AS for this shot, I'd probably call the pro shop in advance and tell them to duck.
