    ROBELLIOT:

    Mark i'm sorry , i have only just seen your reply to this thread .You are correct the link you referred to no longer exists, Ordinarily i would have posted the screen shot here but was unable to, hence the re route to my profile. Thanks too Mantis for a clear , concise post explaining how to set up a game.

     

     

    First I would like to thank Mantis for his post, it got my practice game shot logging, creative juices going.

    Robelliot, not a problem. We all get busy between golf and life and more golf and I do appreciate you replying to my post.

    Robelliot, what I was hoping to see linked to your profile was how and where you practice, I have since come up with a few of my own ideas and am working on them to improve my game and intend to share with others as soon as I can finish and compile them.

    Iconian, I want to thank you so much for writing this definitive guide on the use of the chip and pitch clubs.  I was fortunate enough to find this guide early in my experience at WGT and it has helped my game immensely.  Now as a Legend, I've referred to it when tutoring beginner players and recommend it constantly even to seasoned WGT pros.  

    I also want to thank you for keeping the guide updated, I have seen it improve over time as refinements are added.  I know it has been a labor of love for you, and your own achievements in WGT are testament to this guide's veracity and validity.  

    Many thanks for providing what has been a game-changing tutorial for me.  I credit your help for vastly improving my game.

    Hugs,

    Deb

    Purely because this is a pitching & chipping thread Mark i've messaged you the practice info personally. I suggest learning the full spectrum of shots relating to your 64° wedge,by this i mean , Full shot, punch , pitch , chip. In practice from 100% down to about 60 % for the four modes should offer you cover for your distances. 

    ( exception being full shot : ie from 30/40 sand ..40% = 12 yds. (64 °wedge)

    You can choose to calculate from sand or rough 30/40 ~ 40/50 inclusive or as i did learn the scale separately  then add following as extra: (20% from 30/40 sand) appx.Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    nb. From my own experience sand 10/ 20% plays different course to course,best to take notes.

    EXAMPLE: PITCH SHOT 30/40 ROUGH>

    .

    Wow, don't I feel like an ungrateful dumbass.

    Iconian, thank you very much for this tutorial. I have been using it for a month now and found it invaluable to get me started with this game. I became so involed with the latest posts to your thread, I completely forgot how and why I was reading your thread.

    Thanks again for your insight and hard work.

    HELP HELP HELP I CANT CHIP CANT FLOP CANT PITCH I don't really use the 40% more stuff you were talking about I go by yds. I really need help. here's an example I was on the fairway. sorry don't remember course or hole. please just listen though I really want to lower my ave.. I was on the fairway as I mentioned 13 yds away from hole. 1 in. uphill to hole the club I used to pitch said the "max of club was 19. know heres my problem 50%of 19 should be 9.5 yds. everything flat I know this. and half of 9.5 is 4.25 so total of those combined is 13.75.(50%+25%) 18 in.uphill to hole green speed was tournament 12 so I figured with  that green speed 75% should have been fairly close it went 31 ft past the hole??? so in total it went 13 yds to the hole plus another 10 past it that's a total of 23 yds  and he club said 19 and I only hit it at 75%.hope you understand. Can you help????

    MDWa:

    Dump the hybrid.  Then 3 good quality evenly spaced wedges.  Choose one ball, and learn FBS pitching around the rated yardages. Punching do same but rmbr punching you can use down to 55% power easily around the green with say a CG64.  Shovelling the proverbial uphill with teh starter stuff.

    MDWa:
    13 yds away from hole. 1 in. uphill

    That's just less than 85% power with a HL Cleve CG64 pitched FBS...Gotta map those clubs and go with it.

    Also see rest of thread loads of stuff:)
