(Don’t do this with wedge distances as you can be a little more accurate with those)
Get a general yardage on what you have.
Figure out what club you would have to hit to go over the green…and hit one less club…regardless of where the pin is.
So for me, if I had 178 yards to the back of the green, I would have to hit 7 to go over. So I would hit 8, regardless of my exact yardage to the pin.
I bet over 90% of you shoot lower than normal. Without all of the mental anguish on whether you have 164 or 166 to the pin…and is this a 78% shot, or a 93% shot choked down 1/2″…and most of you will actually be hitting enough club and not be in the front bunker to front pins…and any other number of ridiculous and erroneous factors that go into club selection…all of the mental energy will go into just hitting the ball solid.
