nice shiny ones that you just can't hit early in the season.  How do you
get them back into your repertoire?

My league season starts in 2 weeks and I just not "there" yet.  My short
irons and lofted fairway woods are ok, but my long irons and less lofted
woods just aren't happening.

Do I take the rascals out of my bag, thus avoiding temptation, or do I
let them out on the course in the hope they'll start cooperating?

Why punish yourself.....  replace that 3 iron with a 7 wood and replace the
4 iron with a 9 wood.  Not uncommon these days for people that have a little
trouble getting those low lofted irons to behave themselves.  Besides, the
woods are more versatile in the semi rough and almost impossible to sh**k.

My recommendation - Play nothing but those clubs a couple rounds. I mean for
every shot.  You are probably over swinging or taking your eyes off the ball
or both.  Playing the unhittable clubs in situations other than when you
want to achieve maximum distance, requires 1) a different tempo and 2) more
concentration.  Remember a good amatuer will practice and practice until he
gets it right.  A good Pro will practice and practice until he can't do it
wrong.  (He in this case is spelled He/She).
Good Luck
Jim

I've always had all the clubs available in the set (1-9 and all 4 wedges),
and usually kept 'em all in my bag (yes, in violation of the14 club rule --
sue me).

But in the last year, I've become more and more tempted to add another
couple of fairway woods.  I love my 3 wood, and it's the only fairway wood I
carry.  Adding a 5 and 7, or probably a 4 and 5, would give me two more
clubs I'm sure I'd like, and could hit with greater precision (and land
softer) than I can the long irons.

Still, I like having that 1-iron in there for certain tee shots.

Dee,
take yourself and those clubs to the driving range and hit some balls and
you will be pleasantly surprised on how those clubs will come back along
with your game.

Randy......how is it that you can take exception for some people's
treatment of the rules eg - for using a range finder "its against the rules
of golf"  yet carry in excess of 14 clubs and say "sue me".... When is a
rule not a rule?... :^)..........  just pointing out a possible
inconsistency ... I don't really care  as I've occasionally discovered an
extra club in my bag (damn kids) and I really don't care if someone wants
to know "exactly" how far it is to the pin, its not as if that knowledge is
likely to make that much of a difference.     Lorry

Stay calm           be brave              wait for the signs
