Example text

That’s what I do. I use a 48-degree pitching wedge, a 53-degree sand wedge, and a 58-degree lob wedge. I hit them 125 yards (pitching wedge), 105 yards (sand wedge), and 85 yards (lob wedge). That way, the yardage gap between them isn’t significant. If I carried only the 125-yard wedge and the 85-yard wedge, that would leave a gap of 40 yards — too much. If I leave myself with a shot of about 105 yards, right in the middle of my gap, I’ve got problems. Carrying the 105-yard wedge plugs that gap.

The first thing you need to know, of course, is how far you’re likely to hit each club. After you know that, you can look into plugging the gaps. Those gaps are most important at the short end of your set. Table 1-2 shows how far the average golfer generally hits with each club when he or she makes solid contact. When you start to play this game, you probably won’t attain these yardages, but as you practice, you’ll get closer. Table 1-2 Which Club Should You Use? Club Men’s Average Distance Women’s Average Distance Driver 230 yards 200 yards 3-wood 210 yards 180 yards 2-iron 190 yards Not recommended; 4-wood or hybrid = 170 yards 3-iron 180 yards Not recommended; 5-wood or hybrid = 160 yards 4-iron 170 yards 150 yards (consider a hybrid instead) 5-iron 160 yards 140 yards 6-iron 150 yards 130 yards 7-iron 140 yards 120 yards 8-iron 130 yards 110 yards 9-iron 120 yards 100 yards Pitching wedge 110 yards 90 yards Sand wedge 90 yards 80 yards Lob wedge 65 yards 60 yards You should know your average.

So that leaves two-piece and three-piece balls. Don’t worry; deciding on a type of ball is still easy. ” Leave all that to the scientists. And don’t fret about launch angle or spin rate, either. Today’s balls are technological marvels, designed to take off high and spin just enough to go as straight as possible. Go with a two-piece ball. I don’t recommend a three-piece ball to a beginning golfer. Tour pros and expert players use such balls to maximize control. As a beginner, you need a reliable, durable ball.
