    Is it your putting or your iron play that is rank ?

    Well, if there's any kind of sense or logic in that statement, then I'll take a knife and fork to my hat ...

    Re: How often per round do you pull the chief

    Use driver on either 3 or 4 holes at my course depending on wind. 3 wood on 2 or 3 others, and irons off th rest. Only because my course is very short and tight.

    On other courses I definitely take irons off the tee much more than most, but it completely depends on the hole, length, amount of trouble/size of landing areas and distance to hazards/bunkers. Weigh up the risk/reward of hitting each club and make a decision!

    Re: How often per round do you pull the chief

    Mine is pretty reliable and goes straight usually. I'm not blessed with forum distances so have to hit it on 12 holes at our place.
    I used to have a signature until it became unfashionable.

    Re: How often per round do you pull the chief

    Could be 13 times, could be 9, or anywhere between. Depends on conditions and whether the other parts of my game as more or less rank on any given day.

    Re: How often per round do you pull the chief

    There's 15 or so par3/4s on my course and i tend to lose at least one ball off the tee with a wicked slice so it's 16/17 driver hits for me.

    i don't hit my driver very far (200yards max). I don't have a three wood but probably wouldn't use it if i had it.

    Re: How often per round do you pull the chief

    Every par 4 and 5. My driving is OK and I'm no better with my fairway wood of the tee anyway.
