    Re: How often per round do you pull the chief

    8/14 of the par 4 or 5 holes at my course I always hit driver, 5 I always hit something more conservative and one I usually hit 5 iron to lay up short of a burn but sometimes hit driver over it depending on conditions and confidence.

    There is a reason why the Fairway Dodger hits it like a girl!

    Re: How often per round do you pull the chief

    I've taken my 3 wood out of the bag altogether now as I never use it. I use the driver at 12 of the holes at my home course. That's the par 5 and all the par 4s but one (the 18th) which has a ditch around 200 yards so I lay up with the 5 iron.

    I really like my driver, it's fairly reliable, and I don't even have a nice fairway wood (it's next on the purchase list) so it's no brainer for me really.

    Re: How often per round do you pull the chief

    i suppose it depends on the wind at mine. into the wind on the front maybe on 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th. rarely hit it on the 2nd or 8 and 9.

    back 9 down wind i might not is it at all apart from 15

    and apart from the 4 par threes of course

    Re: How often per round do you pull the chief

    Out of 18 Holes, 4 are par 3, so max is 14. Two par 4s are 90 degree doglegs were you only need to hit 170-200 to at the corner.

    I normally hit it on the remaining 12 holes, so basically on every hole I can. Only time I hit it off 11 tees is when I am protecting a good score, then on 18 then I would hit 7 iron off the tee as it is such a short hole(280-300 yards).

    Re: How often per round do you pull the chief

    Generally every 4/5 hole, I don't carry a 3 wood as I don't hit it well and there's not much in it distance wise between that and my rescue. Don't really hit the rescue any straighter than the big dog, so better 50 yards further down and in the first cut hitting at the green with 7 and up than on the fairway hitting at the green with 5-7.

    Re: How often per round do you pull the chief

    Previously used it on 13 holes but now switched to a Callaway driving iron on the tighter holes now with not too much of a loss in distance, so maybe 9/10 holes now on my home track.
