Are you a picker or a digger?


Recommended Posts

Was a picker most of my life. Now I am a digger. -3 AOA on irons and +4 with my driver.

I'm a grinner  .....      Well a picker too as digging ain't my thang. 

Depends on the shot. Sweep Woods and hybrids, Nip the 3-7, Pick the 8-PW, Bruise the wedges. Duff the putter.

Totally the same. As a kid I could lay some turf. Now that my wrists are not as strong I've had to learn to come through the ball different. But sometimes when it's wet I can still get a trophy pelt

I used to go down after it pretty hard, but a couple years ago I switched to a shallower attack ala wild bill melhorn. Now I'm working my way back to a little more go-down-after-it but trying not to over do it. Hard to find a sweet middle spot. I do think shallow helps on thin lies or muddy wet conditions. But i think over all my gir went down a little with shallow...

Big time digger most of the time when I'm hitting it well. When it's wet, I take some serious scalps. MGB is right - hit the little ball first.

 

But as I get older, I've learned how to completely lose my posture and hit screaming head-high skulls as well. I get away with it off the tee. Not so good with a wedge.

Digger.I started as a picker for years, but over the last two years ,I've really started a more upright attacking swing to help me get a little more power in my old age.

Mostly a picker. It helps out of fairway traps.

Kind of in the middle. Maybe more of a digger. If I have a shot where I want to pick it, I can, but I'd say I'm more of a digger.

I cracked up at the trophy pelt line! On a wet course in really good shape I'm the same way. I also thinned out my attack angle due to wrist issues.

It's fun to pull that big of bass out of the live well and show your friends

I'm a picker, but I can dig with my wedges to get that spin. I'm working on hitting more down on the ball with my irons though.

I think all of us pickers are trying hard not to give Mother Earth a sore head  :D ..  We're trying not to disrupt that pretty turf by whacking a big chunk out of it.

I've almost always been a picker, but I have begun to change it up a little so as to make sure I'm hitting down and trough to get a good compression. It's not a 180 degree change, but maybe somewhere around 30 - 45 degrees. It's just enough that I'm beginning to legitimately take some turf with the shot.

I'm a picker for sure. I can take a nice beaver pelt if I want to, but typically I'm not taking much of a divot.
