I hit three bags of balls in 95* heat yesterday. Even the girl at the counter said, “You sure?! It’s really hot today...”
I was WORN out by the end. One day this swing is gonna click... One day.

I hit 3 giant jumbo buckets today in 70° weather. I almost melted myself.

$20 for all day access to the range all you can hit, Short Game area, putting green and a little grass putting course.

Pretty nice having something like that. Even had good range balls. I’m used to paying $8 for sand covered lost and founds. And they don’t even fill it up.

Hit a little short game practice area for a bit, getting used to my kinda new 52 and 60 wedges. Just outta curiosity, what kind of situations do you guys use the 60 with a full swing? I feel pretty solid with the club on partial swings, but something about full swings gets all kinds of inconsistent.

I never put a full swing on my 60.  It's a feel club for me.  If I am at a distance that would require a full swing, I'm going to controlled shots with my 54 just like the shots I would do with the 60.

"A man's got to know his limitations," and I know I'm not good enough to full swing a 60 with consistent results.

Today I turned 52 so my daugter pushed the cart around te course for an evening 9 after our rib-eye steak dinner. Chily and very windy which means the 1st years play in to the wind. Shot 41. Nothing spectacular and putting was not good. Missed a number of 3-6 footers for par. No big numbers was my goal for the night so that was a success. 

Good time with my kid as well

I asked my pro during a wedge lesson a similar question i.e what's the technique for a full swing with my 48/52/54?

He said "Why?, why would you put a full swing on a scoring club? if you cant reach without a full swing on a 54, hit a 52"

as he's very experienced in tournaments and his wedge play is exceptional I'll bow down to his knowledge and advice.

My 60’ sits in a dark corner of my garage. With the tight lies in this area I can’t get any grass under the ball. It’s a 54’ bent to 55’ as my go to.

I am benching my 60° this year. I’ve already taken strokes off my game.

Think I am going to change my set up to 50, 55.

Last couple of times out I've tried to embrace this. Found I'm better at distance control if I flight down a PW or GW instead of taking full swings with my 54 degree. 

Depending on the irons, of course, my next set of wedges will be stronger lofted. Maybe 52-56 or 50-54 depending on the stock PW/GW setup.

Today I am heading to Boyne Mountain. They have a sweet short game area, and endless range balls.

Plan on spending a good portion of the day there. Alternating between long game, short game, and putting.

And maybe.... just maybe if the pro has an opening I am going to get a check up/lesson. emoji33.png

Boyne Mountain is beautiful! Hope the practice session was a success.

My follow up question would be what is that max swing you should put on those wedges? 1/2? 3/4? A little less than full?

I use full on my 54; it is my 100 yard club and I hit it well. 58 generally sits in the bag and comes out for greenside pitches and chips.

....furthermore; why would you carry a club in your bag that you can't feel good about putting a full swing on?

not that you SHOULD do it, but if the situation calls for it.

Like @cnosil I rarely use my 58 for full swings but if I'm at the right distance with the right lie I have no problem doing it.  I suppose it's probably me, but when I try just less than a full swing I seem to decelerate on make a bad swing.

Didn’t hogan say not to hit wedges over 50 yards?

That was before all these jacked lofts and only having a couple of wedges in the bag.
