    Pete,

    What would be an average distance for a senior off the tee with a three wood. Is there a way to keep the trajectory of the three wood low if you are hitting into the wind?

    I’m 75 and hit my driver 200-235 on average if I don’t feel confident with my driver into the wind today I would go to my 3 rescue club (Taylor made) because of the lower trajectory and sacrifices distance!

      Don,

      It’s tough but on windy days you just have to swing easy and get it down the middle. Then take an extra club or two to hit approach shots. If you swing hard you put too much spin on the ball. This spin is amplified by the wind thus moving it offline even more. Although swinging hard feel great it’s a real problem int he wind. You should spend time learning this shot.

  3. Do you need to tee up with an iron on the tee box? If so how do you change the execution of your shot if you normally hit a ball straight off the ground with an iron?

      Wendy,

      Yes, you should be teeing your ball up whenever you can. You wouldn’t really change anything as you are teeing it up just above ground level. You are teeing it up to allow better contact and less grass between the face and ball. Be careful not to tee it too high.
