They are not good clubs to beat Tour champion.
I bet you wish you could take that statement back . If not . Then you are a long way from even playing Tour Champ and getting within 5 to 7 strokes of him on your best day .
Once you realize that playing with a good set of Cali's . Like Sam suggests . Equipment that is only a few yards shorter . And confident . That is more than plenty . Then you will start to be competitive .
Right now . A Tour Champ could swap clubs with you and still win .
IDK if any of that is right . But you sound that way .
For instance . So what if your drive is 40 yards shorter than his . Say he has a 122 yd approach . You have a 162 yd approach . .
His shot is 4 yds from the hole . Your shot is .5 yds from the hole .
Champ greens . You should know champ greens . You're farther . You go first and sink the putt . His turn . He shoots and it lips out .
Your already up by one . Only 8 more to go . Lol . No matter if you are playing a TC or a peer . Every hole is a new hole . With a little luck . It could go either way .
Because , It's luck if you do . And it's luck if you don't .
