    Re: How often per round do you pull the chief

    My driver stays firmly locked away in my locker but then I hit a 3-wood around 240/250 carry, I had a drive of 310 off of our 13th t'other day 'granted' the wind was from behind and the ground was rock hard at the time...

    Don't need a driver therefore I don't use it 'anyway' it's more satisfying out-driving yer mates with a 3-wood...

    Re: How often per round do you pull the chief

    A cracking euphemism...

    Occasionally is the answer to the correct question
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And with just the October medal to go - I've got to 8.3

    Re: How often per round do you pull the chief

    If the driver and I are on speaking terms then it can be as many as 8 times, in a comp when its on the naughty step it can be as little as 3

    Re: How often per round do you pull the chief

    After the 1st tee shot I will know if it's coming out again in succession or if I drop to the 4w. If I get off the first tee OK it will then reappear on the 2nd and then could end up being selected for 12 out of 18 in total tee tee shots.

    I never take it on our 3rd or 9th, sometimes the wind may allow me to drop down to the 4w on the 2nd, 4th & 12th but in the main, I need it at least 10 possibly 12 holes or its a wood into the green for me and I'd rather an iron. We have 4 par 3's of which 2 are 200 yards plus and I need to be on form with the 4w to hit the small greens.

    Re: How often per round do you pull the chief

    13 times (all holes except the par 3's) - best part of my game

    If only I could hit my fairway shots as well as I hit my drives .....
    If I hit it right, it's a fade. If I hit it left, it's a draw, if I hit it straight, it's a miracle

    Re: How often per round do you pull the chief

    Definitely one of the most reliable clubs in my bag. Hit it 11 times normally in any round. 10 times if I decide not to try and drive the 17th green. Hate hitting 3 wood off the tee, use it for 2nd shot on the odd par 5 if I'm in good position.

    Re: How often per round do you pull the chief

    A maximum of 7 times
    Depending on the wind, it could be as few as 4 times..
