    Re: 3 wood distance

    Just noticed the comment about orange castle tees. Try switching to a 70mm (middle of the ball in line with the top of the club) or a pink and seeing what happens.

    Re: 3 wood distance

    I was trying different tee heights today plus I changed the loft
    to 10.5 and almost all sliced right I'm going back to 9.0 and I'll try a lower tee thing is on a high tee I don't touch the tee about 7/10 shots so the head must be to high on impact I'm going to get a couple of lessons at the end of the month

    Three wood averages about 215 and so a reasonable gap to my average driver distance of 225-235. My three wood is ideal for our first and seventeenth both well over 200 yards. When it gets dry and runs the 3 wood is ideal on several holes where a driver will get you in trouble

    Re: 3 wood distance

    Iv got a bit of a gap between my 3 wood (220) and 2/3 hybrid (190), but I'm OK with that I'm more concerned with the 6° gap between PW (44°) and 50°

    My wedges are 44, 50 and 56. I wouldn't worry about the gaps, just practise different methods of hitting the pitching wedge less far, such as gripping a bit further down, three-quarter swing, etc. In the long run that should make you a better wedge player in addition to saving you money in buying more wedges.

    Re: 3 wood distance

    I am in the category of being more comfortable with my driver than with a 3 wood (the bigger head inspires more confidence). I think I need to stop trying to belt it as hard as possible and get a better rhythm going.

    Re: 3 wood distance

    Club distances are the wrong focus - fairways and greens! Just know what each of your clubs do and play for positions that get you the best score !!
