Got a couple bids out on ebay right now.
Played normal tees last night, 3200 yards or so. My course has a lot of trouble right, and some water. Shot 45 without a wood of any kind. Which brings my maximum distance to about 210 on a pured 3 iron.
Just took a lesson with James Sieckmann this morning on partial wedge shots. Minor issues, but i think they’ll translate through the rest of my game. Basically taking too long of a swing, leading to a lazy body and a shut face.
I imagine its the same issue with hickory, but a different result. Face to path is left open with hickory, where its just a bit shut on modern wedges.
We talk about the hamster wheel of death during lessons, and i was just getting ready to jump on it with my wedges, i just got to a plus handicap with modern equipment, but hickories are so much more exposing of swing flaws.
That was off on a tangent, but i feel like its more related to hickory than it may seem, due to the less forgiving nature of hickory.
