I'll take the 25 yards and get 6 strokes a round!!  I'd be willing to bet I could also gain an additional 3 strokes just by playing shorter approaches. Any takers?

Would you like to play a match where someone gives you three strokes and also lets you play from the senior tee? I'd take it and run.

In true fashion..... .....I could monkey paw both of these choices.    If we choose 25 extra yards, you're now experiencing 25 extra yards of trouble once you get off line and lose jus

So I am late to the party on this one, but for me its a no brainer.  Take 3 strokes off.  That would take me from a +3 to a +6 and that would make me competitive in the US Mid Am's and US AM's.   This

I'll say the 25 yards as well.   I first thought the three strokes, but then realized if I can get 25 yards on some holes, I could go from hitting a hybrid to a 6 or possibly 7 iron, or from hitting a

The average handicap for the 25 yards is about 12. 

The average handicap for the 3 shots is about 7. 

I think this shows that at a lower handicap, it is harder to shave off a few shots than at a high handicap. For a high handicap, hitting a shorter club into the green is paramount. Lower handicaps are usually better ball strikers so an 8 iron VS a PW isn't as big of a deal as it is to a higher handicap. 

Just my $0.02. 

You got it bubba. 

3 strokes is basically the same as dropping your index by 3. That would be monumental for me, as I’m pretty stuck where I’m at now.

I would take the 25 yards with my same accuracy. I don't have the length I once did and 25 yards would certainly translate to lower scores for me!

What if taking the 3 strokes resulted in hitting your driver 25 yards further...🤔
