Ill use pitch shots between 85 - 60 yds. The splash shot has been my game changer. Anything 10 - 35 yds and I can stop it right by the holes if not make it. It feels like the flop shot was back in TGC 2.
+1 for the splash shot, it’s a better version of the flop for short shorts.
There’s also a non-brand one (yellow head, I think) that carries 237. Less forgiving though.
Pitch shots feel so bad. swing as fast as possible and get a slow or perfect, swing normal and get very slow every time and it goes like 50% of the distance. I’ll do a 25%-50% lob wedge from like 75 out (always gets very fast but I just aim out right) vs. the unpredictable pitch shots.
Figuring out the pitch shots has been a life saver for me. The tempo for then is way different and the penalty for a slow is awful, but once I figured it out. Hitting those one hop and stop shots is great
Looking for 3 more PS4 players!
Depending on when it is, i’m in!
Probably starting next week
I’ll have to work on some practice swings.
For those looking for a quick way to setup their bag, somebody put together this spreadsheet with ratings and carry distances for almost every club in the game. It’s a handy tool if you’re considering a change:
This is a great find…now I get to spend hours tinkering with my virtual bag like I do my IRL bag
Just need one more then we will close it!
I have a very similar bag to this
All SIM woods and hybrid
P790 irons because I play them IRL
The long distance Wilson wedges
The TM prize for sponsorships as a putter
Went all distance for obvious reasons. If we need to get more forgiving, I have bought those clubs too!!
I have the same except I use Callaway wedges. Don’t care to change since I am so used to it now.
I’ve debated ditching a club at the top end and adding in the Hogan 60* so that I have a 95 and 79 lob wedge. I also love the Hogan 215yd hybrid but have seen compelling evidence that the long irons stop a lot faster than a hybrid. They’re also not penalized as much out of the rough. Both of those things are backwards to real life but somehow true in this game.
I just found out while in the fairway you you can comfortably hit driver off the deck about 250-260 yds. This is a game changer since my 3 wood only goes 216.
Still got room for one?
Come on now…you’re shooting -47 in Young Hitters with the senior flex, mega offset clubs in the bag?
