    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...

    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.

    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.

    though I've never ever heard it referred to as 'the chief'

    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.
