    WGT Forums, I am stuck as a level 92 Legend with a 76 avg. I was a level 91 Tour Master with a 61 avg,  I leveled up to 92 , became a Legend and watched my avg skyrocket.   The tee box became 50 yds or more farther away but my equipment is the same.

    What happened?

    What happened is that you moved up to the real game. Stick with it; it's more fun.

    AnserPower:
    my equipment is the same.
    There seems to be some inconsistency:

    - your irons are L10 and may not bring the ball to the green with sufficient distance and precision. Common advice is to have irons with "high" trajectory - L59 Pings are the first to show that (but certainly not the best).

    - your wedges are around L30 - perhaps also some room for improvement(?)

    - you carry only two wedges - consider to drop the hybrid for a third, intermediate wedge, after settling for the new irons.

    - your balls are L85 @600 cr - far too expensive for these clubs which cannot awaken their qualities.

    But, regardless if you want to invest in the game or not:

    Have fun!!

    And Christmas isn’t far away either, so either Casey or Santa?

    600 credit balls he uses say he can afford his own equipment

    Thanks alosso, I'll spend some time in the pro shop.  I didn't realize it could make that much of an effect on my game.
