    Possibly moved your marker/arrow without realising, it happens.

    On a lighter note, not too far to walk for your second.

    Was the wind blowing?

    Sidehill landing area?

    Your driver is way before my time, so I have no idea regardin it's precision rating - although they all have some variability

    Then again - sometimes, my shots go places I never imagined!

    I found a post in the forum on it and Jim said it was not a forgiving driver and not accurate. He said it crushes though.

    Sounds like the old Rocketball clubs

    dorey:

    I move my marker on my driver shot hit the ding and it lands to the left of my marker ????

    Hi,

        Here's something i see happen guys quite often

    "I dinged that & it took off in the wrong direction, wth!"

    So below you'll see I'm 126 yd's out & I'm aimed roughly 10 mm (A Box) to the left of the pin, Correct!?

    Wrong, Even though visually I've aimed 10mm  (A box) left of the flag it could go anywhere as I'm only placed the aimer 31 yd's in front of me so this shot could literally fly anywhere & would explain a lot of the wth shot's guy's get

     

    Same shot below & all I've done different is to make sure I'm aiming my distance in (126 yd's) & in this case I've the aim marker places 127 yd's out.

    Moral of the story is to place your aim marker parallel to or past your distance in or where you want to land, Never way before it.

    Ken

    Excellent advice Ken! I always move my aimer out to the full distance of it's range much more accurate that way! On drives most of the time the aimer is at 240yrds,the variable on that shorter angle as you say could go anywhere.
