Tell me if this situation sounds familiar to you? You are out playing with your buddies and feel like you are just striking your clubs great, the driver is hot, hitting all your irons as pure as you can.
But....you just can't quite seem to put holes together, a par when you thought you were going to have a birdie, you bogie or double a hole that you really don't feel like you should have and feel like you hit the ball pretty well on. Your approach shots are coming off your irons beautifully but every time you get up to the green you are long of the pin and have a 40 foot putt or you make what feels like a perfect swing with your 8 iron on a nice par 3 but end up short of the green in a bunker.
How about this situation, you're in the middle of the fairway after a nice drive and you check the distance from the pin "it's 210 out" you think well I'll hit my 5 wood since I hit that ABOUT 210. You don't REALLY know how far you hit your 5 wood, you remember hitting it at the range and there were a few markers out there that were maybe 200 yards and you got past it a few times.
This is a problem, a big problem, but the good news is it's a totally fixable problem for your golf game with almost no effort. Knowing your exact distance on all your clubs can be easily worth 4-5-6 or even more strokes a round. Think about that, just having the knowledge of how far you hit your clubs could start taking you from a mid 80's golfer to a low 80's golfer. No new swing ideas, no little trick you are trying this week, not a brand new putter you think will push you over the edge. Just having a little more knowledge of your own game could drastically change your scores.
