not much of a secret IMO Renn ..
it's just that i've put in time to figure out exactly the distance the irons will carry with full backspin into the green with my ball of choice .. i used the lvl71 Nike with the Bladez & am using the lvl81 Nike with R11's .. for me, with the 5 dot distance Nike's, the shots are very predictable using full back on approaches .. thing is u gotta be on ding or very close ..
for example i know that with a R11 3i headwind shot i have to add 6-8 yds depending on the wind's velocity .. with a tailwind 3i shot i add nothing using full back, but with a 4i i'll add 2yds using full back with tailwind .. those kinda small details together with knowing exactly where, i.e. 96.5% mtr strength is on the mtr scale is what makes accurate shots possible for me .. i use a mathematical approach on my shots into the green .. i guess it works for me .. sometimes i just wing it & play off feel, but the math approach works better for me on approaches ..
also, when i play a ranked round, i take my time and don't rush .. suppose that helps too .. i don't do that when i play a/s though, which is my fav mode for multi play, so i don't score as low then cause i play mostly off feel .. for me a/s or skins, etc, is all about the fun of the company during the game, i don't care who wins, as long as the company is good ..
also, i don't really play credit games .. perhaps the odd free cred tourney .. i believe RG's are where most of the complaints originate from ? i play for the fun of it only ..
i only get kinda competitive when i play the course on my own & see if can beat it ..
