Can you actually get a 5-wood to stay on the green from 185?
I take half to 3/4 swings on all my clubs. So much easier to control as opposed to taking full strokes. I probably take the shortest stroke with my driver. Unless you are playing from the blacks, distance doesn't normally mean much to hacks like me. Hitting straight pretty much ensures bogey golf or better. Then its all down to chipping and putting as to how much lower your score is.
