Selecting the Right Club
Not selecting the right club adds more strokes to the average golfer's score than anything. Most golfers tend to under club themselves, coming up just short of the green or not quit crossing over the hazard. Just because your favorite pro or playing partner can hit a 7 iron 185 yards does not mean you can. Usually this leads to over swinging and wilder shots. All things being equal, most golfers would benefit from using at least one club more than they think and swinging easy. This is why it is so important to take time at the range to truly learn how far you can hit each club. What is the distance between your 6 iron and 7 iron, 7 iron and 8 iron, etc..? Are the distances equal throughout your set or do you have some larger gaps within your set, especially when you go from a pitching wedge to gap or sand wedge? Once you know and are confident in your clubs distances you will be taking a lot of questions and doubt out of the equation and while out on the course playing should be able to take a free, smooth, positive swing knowing you have selected the right club.
