    Hard Rough and Sand

    I found this while browsing the net and thought it would be usefull for aour members.

    So, you're in the Hard Rough and you know you can never get it out right! DAMN! Well, here's the solution!

    Take the distance to the pin and multiply by 1.3 and then use your charted 9 or 8 iron to make the shot.

    DISTANCE TO PIN * 1.3 - USE CHARTED 9 IRON

    Distance to Pin Hit This Yardage Distance to Pin Hit This Yardage
    20 26 65 85
    25 33 70 91
    30 39 75 98
    35 46 80 104
    40 52 85 111
    45 59 90 117
    50 65 95 124
    55 72 100 130
    60 78 105 137


    For instance, lets say you are 71y from the pin. Multiply that by 1.3
    and you get 92.3. For me as of this writing, this is a 9i at 56.5%. If
    the lie is not flat you need to adjust accordingly. 1-2% generally is
    enough either way to compensate. You just need to practice the shot.

    Once you learn that, sand shots are easier too. You do the same thing,
    except use your AW for that charted distance. Just subtract about 1-2%
    hehe! Easy peasy!
